Hair loss concealers are merely a temporary solution, while scalp micropigmentation is a more permanent one. While both options are different, each has its own set of benefits. Comparing both options is important for people considering scalp micropigmentation.
While there are slight differences from one brand of concealer to the next, they are pretty much all the same thing and perform the same function. The list of major brand concealers includes DermMatch, Nanogen Nanofibres, COUVRe, Caboki, and Toppik.
There are many other brands, but these are the big ones. They are often cheap to produce, which is how and why manufacturers can afford to create so many.
Concealers need natural hair to provide structure for their formula. Sadly, many men get addicted to concealer despite thinning hair. The concealer cost rises as it requires more product for less hair, leading to unnatural looks. Concealers limit your lifestyle. People who use concealers often fear touch, avoid wind and rain, can’t swim, and face intimacy problems. Some men find concealer residue on their pillow or partner at night.
Men have reported waking up in the middle of the night only to discover a pile of soot on their pillow or, worse, on their partner.
Choosing scalp micropigmentation means shaving your head. For a realistic look, you may need a full head shave. On the bright side, you will be able to walk outside in any weather without worrying about your hair. For prolonged sun exposure, experts recommend sunscreen to protect the pigment and scalp. Unlike concealers, you can run, swim, be intimate, and sweat with this treatment.
