Scalp micropigmentation works for any man experiencing hair loss, regardless of age or ethnicity, and is especially suited to men who keep their hair close cut or shaved but yearn for the aesthetics of a hairline and added hair density.
A non-invasive process, SMP is able to restore receded hairlines, fill in thinning hair, disguise the bald crown area, and even camouflage former hair transplant scars. Scalp micropigmentation rejuvenates both hairlines and our clients, reversing the effects that baldness and thinning hair can have on an individual’s self-confidence.
The objective is to replace your lost density and create the illusion of a full head of hair again. Density is built up using SMP by blending pigment softly into the frontal hairline and gradually increasing density throughout the rest of the scalp wherever hair is thinning. Pigment is matched to the color of your hair dependent on the length you intend to keep it, so that a totally natural blend is achieved.
Male pattern baldness
Male-pattern baldness (MPB) or its medical reference – androgenetic alopecia, is the most common type of hair loss, affecting around half of all men by fifty years of age. It usually starts around the late twenties or early thirties and most men have some degree of hair loss by their late thirties.
It generally follows a pattern of a receding hairline, followed by thinning of the hair on the crown and temples, leaving a horseshoe shape around the back and sides of the head. There are various degrees of MPB that are measured using the Norwood Hamilton Scale.These range from a Norwood 1 (NW1) where no hair loss is experienced to a Norwood 7 (NW7) which means total loss of all hair on top of the head, with or without the ‘horseshoe’ ring of hair at the back and sides.
