Micropigmentation works well for people who have lost their hair through male pattern baldness, alopecia, hormonal conditions and female pattern baldness. It is important to note that SMP does not stop hair loss or result in new hair growth. What it does do is make it appear that you have a fuller head of hair than you actually do. The goal is to make your hair loss undetectable.
When this happens, you have two choices:
1) Let the slightly fading color remain, perhaps to reflect the greying and lightening of hair as you age.
2) Restore the pigment's original strength with a brief touch up session.
1) The equipment. Scalp micropigmentation practitioners use smaller needles that are designed specifically for the scalp. They also deposit smaller amounts of ink.
2) The tattooing technique. Unlike body tattooing, which involves creating lines and shading the skin, SMP places tiny dots of pigment into the scalp's dermal or middle layer. When viewed from close, these pigment dots appear like real hair follicles.
3) The type of ink used. The pigments used for SMP have been created specifically for this use, and unlike the ink used for the body, they are not composed of dyes and colors. SMP ink is diluted to match a person's hair coloring and will not change color over time, as can happen with body tattoo ink.
