About a quarter of our clients are women who are dealing with hair loss. This can include overall thinning or more aggressive forms such as alopecia areata. Female hair loss can be due to menopause, hereditary causes, or a condition known as telogen effluvium that usually follows a physical or emotional trauma, for example childbirth or a bereavement.
Scalp micropigmentation, otherwise known as SMP, is perfect for women who are thinning on the top and crown area of their head. We also have treated hundreds of female clients with alopecia, who wanted to avoid dealing with constant spot balding. We also have treated many women who have had facelift surgeries, due to scarring on the sides and temples of their head, it leaves bald patches. We will fill and camouflage scarring blending it evenly through the hair.
The application of scalp micropigmentation is usually quite painless. There may be a little discomfort in more sensitive regions like the temples, but most people report only very mild sensitivity during their procedure. We offer our own numbing lotion for women who may be concerned about any discomfort, although for most people it really isn’t necessary.
When implanting our inks, we match the hair perfectly, then go one shade darker, to give the shadow illusion to get the ‘full head of hair’ look that is desired. We perform our procedure very softly through the frontal hairline and breaking up the impressions to give it the natural appearance. Going through the top and sides of thin hair, we go much more dense to reduce any contrast in shade between the color of the hair and the color of the scalp, to provide the maximum illusion of density.
This procedure usually requires 2-3 sessions to achieve the desired result. These procedures are completed within a week of each other, and the recovery time between each session can be as little as a few hours.
SMP is the only way to achieve satisfactory camouflage of hair transplant scars
The Scalp Aesthetics technique is a highly advanced scalp micropigmentation procedure, used by more than 20,000 men to add density or correct a receding hairline. However more than 30% of all our clients use scalp micropigmentation to camoflage (hide) a scar of some sort, most commonly a FUT (strip) scar or multiple FUE (dot) scars, both of which are the result of hair transplant surgery.
Just like every customer, every scar is completely unique. The cellular structure of the tissue, any indentation or protrusion, differences in size, shape, color and position means each and every scar requires a tailored approach to achieve the best level of camouflage. As we’re sure you can appreciate, effective scar concealment requires a competent technician with specific experience in this area.
FUE scars are small, numerous and generally easy to hide as using scalp micropigmentation, they can be blended with your real hair almost seamlessly. Plug scars from old fashioned hair restoration surgery are more challenging, however their position and distribution usually enables them to be well camouflaged. FUT scars are perhaps the most challenging as they are the most visible prior to concealment, however these scars are so common that our technicians have treated literally thousands of men with these scars, therefore working to hide them is almost second nature at Scalp Aesthetics.
For more information about specific scar types see this post. The bottom line is that scalp micropigmentation is perfect for the effective concealment of FUT, FUE, scalp reduction and historic plug and cobblestone scars from old fashioned hair restoration procedures.
The great hair transplant rush of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s enticed millions of men to rush to their nearest surgical clinic. In many cases all they have to show for it now are permanent scars, low self-esteem and a lighter bank account. If you’ve suffered in silence for a long time and want to recapture the confidence you felt before losing your hair, and before you gained those scars, let us help you.
If you already had scalp micropigmentation, whether it was with Scalp Aesthetics or some other provider, every so often you may wish to have a quick SMP touch-up session to refresh or change your appearance.
The average Scalp Aesthetics client will need a touch-up procedure every 4-6 years, however there are a number of factors at play. These include your lifestyle, sun exposure and maintenance regimen. Also, not everyone has their procedure at Scalp Aesthetics. Scalpa Ink fades more slowly than any other SMP ink. If you went someplace else, the pigments that were used may fade over a shorter period of time. Fading is a normal and expected part of the treatment life cycle.
Wherever you had your original procedure, we can refresh, improve or alter your style to reflect exactly how you want to appear now. Want a stronger hairline? A more conservative or broken hairline? Additional density? Correction of fading? Want to go darker? We can do all this and much more. We can even arrange for the removal of unwanted pigments if required.
Microblading is a permanent makeup technique for creating the most natural looking eyebrows. This procedure is done by implementing a color pigment into the upper layer of the lower layers of the epidermis by means of small, grouped, sterile needles to create the most natural hair-like strokes. The process is done in two sessions and will last up to 9 months for oily skin, up to 2 years for normal skin. One year touch ups are recommended to retain the consistent brow shape. Microblading is for those with asymmetrical eyebrows, or those with little to no eyebrow hair.
Cosmetic tattooing is a natural looking enhancement used to create the most natural look, it is softer and more subtle. Body tattoos use ink, while cosmetic tattoo procedures involve pigments. Pigment is designed to gently fade over time. Fading will allow the artist to make changes to color and shape over the years as client’s natural coloration and facial changes occur.
Wherever you had your original procedure, we can refresh, improve, or alter your style to reflect exactly how you want to appear. If you want a correction due to unevenness, or just a new shape, we can fix this issue? We can even removal unwanted pigments if required.
