You suffer from baldness? You are not alone. Scientific research shows that 42% of men between the ages of 18 and 49 suffer from moderate to much hair loss. While it is true that hair loss increases with age, baldness is also becoming more common in young men. Now there are several methods to combat male hair loss. For example, think of medicines such as Minoxidil to complete hair transplants. But there's one treatment that's gaining popularity that you've probably never heard of: Scalp Micro Pigmentation.
Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a contemporary treatment that provides an optical effect of a full head of hair. By placing tiny dots of ink just below the skin's surface, the illusion of a shaved head effect is created.
Scalp micropigmentation can also be used on areas of the head where the hair is thinning. You need densification to create the illusion of thicker hair.
Scalp micropigmentation is a treatment in which pigment is placed just below the surface of the skin with an extremely small needle. This creates 'dots' of pigment to mimic a shaved hair follicle.
Combined with thousands of 'dots' applied by a specialist, the result is the appearance of a close-shaven look.
The ink is matched to your existing hair color and you can just wash and swim for a week after the procedure.
This process is ideal for anyone suffering from male pattern baldness, alopecia or thinning hair. In some circumstances, it is also possible to maintain a longer hair length. Please contact me so I can assess your suitability for this option.
Camouflage of scars
If you have used a hair transplant in the past, you may have been left with a large scar. Scars caused by previous hair transplants can be treated with SMP. In fact, they can be made almost completely invisible. A sufficient color can be created for each person, made up of different pigments that approach the natural skin and hair color as perfectly as possible. In this way the scar is camouflaged and the natural look of real hair follicles is created. The result: the illusion of a head full of hair.
I want that! But what are the drawbacks?
• SMP is a semi-permanent procedure, something some men see as a different part. Because the hair pattern remains the same – just like a tattoo on your skin – removing SMP requires a laser removal process. This is an easy treatment: usually one or two treatments are needed to completely remove everything.
• Prolonged exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays can increase the amount of blur. You may therefore have to go back to the clinic to have the pigments updated. It is recommended to protect the scalp with SPF 50 when exposed to the sun.
• Men need to keep their hair very short to take full advantage of the look of the MHP. Are you bald yet? Then that is of course no problem!
