Thousands of men suffer from thinning hair and low hair density caused by genetic or lifestyle-related conditions. Irrespective of the severity of the condition, it is always depressing as hair loss is mostly irreversible.
Fortunately, there are many hair restoration techniques that improve hair density and address the issue of thinning hair. One of the most popular options is hair transplantation.
Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure during which hair follicles from the back of your scalp are transplanted into an area with low hair density. Few weeks after surgery, the transplanted hair follicles will start producing fresh hair that cover the balding area.
Although hair transplantation addresses balding issues, the procedure has limitations. It is likely that you may not grow as much hair as you hoped. The regrowth you achieve will usually have less hair density than what was seen in the area few years ago. So, don’t be surprised if the results aren’t as great as you expected.
The good news, however, is that you will be able to improve the appearance of your hair when you combine the benefits of a hair transplant with that of a cosmetic procedure called Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP). Let us look at how it works.
So, what is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-surgical, cosmetic scalp treatment that is highly recommended for people suffering from low hair density issues. During this process, natural pigments are injected into the skin of the scalp to create the appearance of hair follicles.
By matching the pigment to your natural skin tone and hair color, and varying the depth and angle of application, Scalp Micropigmentation produces realistic results. When it is performed on a bald head, the final appearance is like what you expect to see after a complete head shave.
The procedure, also known as hair tattooing, is quick and almost painless. With precise applications, the results look remarkably natural and are will last for many years.
Combining a hair transplant with micropigmentation for perfect results
Scalp micropigmentation can drastically enhance the results of a hair transplant by creating the appearance of a fuller, denser head of hair in the following ways:
“SMP covers the exposed scalp skin effectively: If you are unhappy about low hair density following a transplant, SMP will add several pigmented follicles that darken the scalp and create a thicker look.”
SMP camouflages scars: This procedure effectively covers scars caused by removal of follicles from the scalp, as part of a hair transplant procedure. The pigments used in SMP camouflage the scar by mimicking the appearance of natural hair follicles. This restores the original look to the affected area.
Scalp micropigmentation, being a cosmetic procedure, employs natural pigments that are hypo-allergenic and free from health concerns. It guarantees effective and long-lasting results. SMP is highly effective on those who are bald or suffering from thinning hair. So, combine scalp micropigmentation with your hair transplant treatment and enjoy the complete solution for all your hair loss woes.
