A Guide to Scalp Micropigmentation For Women

Scalp Micropigmentation For Women
Written by Nancy

According to Medical News Today, 40% of women in the US suffer from major hair loss. While male hair loss is widely known about and even accepted in most cases, all heads turn when a bald woman walks into a store. This puts a lot of negative psychological pressure on women who deal with some form of alopecia, with many of them dealing with compromised self-acceptance.

Women who deal with hair loss often feel pressured by normative beauty standards to ‘fix’ how they look. They’re pushed toward achieving full, long locks. This forces them to try many different hair treatments, some of which are even damaging to their health.

Women who experience hair loss can consider scalp micropigmentation as an alternative to dangerous home treatments. The process involves the use of permanent pigments to create the illusion of a fuller head of hair. SMP allows women to overcome their hair loss insecurities.

Here’s a list of some questions that professionals are usually asked about SMP treatment for women:

Is Scalp Micropigmentation Suitable For Long Hair?

Scalp micropigmentation treatment was initially used for people with bald heads. However, as technology has advanced, we’ve seen some excellent solutions for female hair loss.

Scalp micropigmentation is often used to hide bald spots or make up for a receding hairline. It can also be used to make thin hair look fuller by using a darker pigment than your natural hair color.

The treatment is suitable for long hair because the artists fill in the areas between the hair follicles. Hence, it doesn’t depend on the length of your hair.

Will Scalp Micropigmentation Damage My Hair Follicles?

SMP practitioners work around your hair follicles. The treatment is designed to mimic natural hair growth while creating more definition. To answer the question, no, the needle used in the procedure does not come in contact with the actual hair follicles.

It only penetrates 2mm into your scalp. Even if the artist does accidentally place the pigment directly over your hair follicle, there’s no chance of damage.

Will Scalp Micropigmentation Cause Hair Loss In The Future?

Scalp micropigmentation treatment is a long-lasting solution for anyone who’s fighting hair loss, a receding hairline, or thinning hair.

The artist deposits the pigment in between your hair follicles to mimic the pattern of natural hair growth. This gives your otherwise bald scalp a fuller look while restoring your self-confidence.

It also does not have any hair loss related consequences.
