Scalp micropigmentation for women is designed to help the forty percent of American hair loss sufferers that are actually female. Hair loss in women can be absolutely devastating for the sufferer’s self image and emotional well being.
Unfortunately, society has forced women to suffer in silence. It is considered far more acceptable for men to go through the same hair loss process. The psychological damage for women caused by hair loss and feeling unattractive can be just as devastating as any serious disease, and in fact, can take an emotional toll that directly affects physical health. Robbed of her ‘crowning glory’, the emotional impact on a woman can exacerbate the trauma.
It is a subject that remains largely taboo and few women are willing to discuss it publicly as they are continually assaulted with images of models with beautiful flowing locks. Suffering in silence many often resort to spending vast amounts of money on commercially marketed treatments that can be largely ineffective.
Scalp micropigmentation offers immediate results and will instantly create the illusion of thicker hair by camouflaging the affected areas of the scalp or bare patches. Most importantly, SMP does not interfere with the body’s own ability to regenerate the follicles nor does it damage existing follicles. For women suffering hair loss due to treatable physical or mental illnesses, deficiencies or circumstances, the natural hair growth can often resume once these conditions are resolved.
SMP also works beautifully in conjunction with hair enhancements and wigs that may currently be worn by a woman to hide any hair loss. With scalp micropigmentation, women no longer have to avoid certain activities where your hair piece cannot be worn such as swimming or high impact physical activities. SMP permanently creates the illusion of density and a thicker looking mane on your own scalp so you don’t feel exposed or self conscious without your hair piece. What’s more, once the treatment is completed, it requires very little maintenance or effort so there is no checking the mirror every time the wind blows to make sure your hair is in place to camouflage the bare areas.

Female pattern baldness
Similar to male-pattern hair loss, both heredity factors and hormones seem to play major roles in female pattern hair loss. However, patterns of hair loss appear differently in women than in men. Women with androgenetic alopecia more often have diffuse thinning on all areas of the scalp.
The pattern and extent of hair loss for women is shown on the Savin Scale, which measures overall thinning as well as the density of the hair. The Savin Scale illustrated below shows the common areas of hair loss in women that can be aided with scalp micropigmentation.
