Women’s Scalp Micropigmentation
Written by Nancy

Hair loss affects 50 percent of women by the time they reach the age of 65—for some, it can even start as early as 21! Hair loss is a scary and embarrassing subject matter for most women. It causes anxiety and self-esteem issues, which affects all their interactions.

Currently, there are only two FDA-approved medications on the market that have been clinically proven to slow down hair loss—but there are none that facilitate regrowth. In this scenario, many women opt for scalp micropigmentation (SMP).

Here’s what the SMP experts at Delaware Scalp Micropigmentation have to say about scalp micropigmentation for women.

Does SMP work with long hair?

Traditionally, SMP has worked best with shaved hair or a bald head—that’s why men most frequently opted for it. However, with recent advancements in inking technology and technique, it works well for women with long hair too.

During the process, small dots are added to the scalp with the help of a microneedle. These mimic natural hair follicles, giving the appearance of a thicker, fuller head of hair.

Does SMP look natural?

Yes, if done by an expert SMP practitioner, it will look natural. A skilled SMP practitioner will match the shade of ink with the color of your hair. Plus, they will ensure that the ‘dots’ are placed in a way that looks natural and even.

Finally, the hairline you choose must suit your face shape, and an expert will be able to guide you regarding which one will frame your face best.

How soon can I expect to see the results of SMP?

The results of SMP are visible almost immediately. Some people experience slight redness in the area after the treatment, but that usually goes away in a day or two. After that, you’ll be able to see the results perfectly.

Usually, scalp micropigmentation requires 2-3 sessions. During the first one, a foundation of color is built on then scalp. More color is added over successive sessions to make it look denser.

Does SMP lead to hair loss?

No, SMP does not lead to hair loss. It’s a relatively simple procedure that has minimal side effects. Most people only experience slight discomfort on the scalp after the treatment.

Delaware Scalp Micropigmentation uses natural pigments and takes precautionary measures to ensure all equipment is clean and sanitized before each use.

If you’re thinking of getting SMP, Delaware Scalp Micropigmentation offers non-surgical hair loss treatment for women.
