Being able to achieve a good amount of hair regrowth is one of the primary reasons to use a balding solution. Camouflaging your hair loss can also be used as another method to accomplish the same kind of result, using however a different technique. A person may feel more self-conscious about how people look at them, and notice their baldness. Being able to grow their hair back might seem to be the best and indeed the first option for most clients, but creatively concealing the alopecia using another technique (Scalp MicroPigmentation) can provide relief from alopecia just as well. Patients often find selecting the best treatment for them is one of the most difficult things to overcome.
Hair transplant surgery is one of the main methods that people turn to when they are looking for a solution to balding. It is probably the most effective way to increase density of hair on the scalp, by repositioning hair follicles from one area of the scalp to another. The issue with hair transplants is there is no new hair follicles created (or indeed cloned), so the patient can only make use of this procedure if he has an adequate supply of hair follicles that can be put into the balding areas. Patients with male pattern baldness are most suited to this type of treatment, but it is not as suitable for sufferers of alopecia areata. Indeed it has no benefit for people who suffer from other forms of alopecia, like for example alopecia totalis. There is also the issue where scarring can occur from hair transplant procedures which might be undesirable to the patient.
Achieving a realistic, natural look is really the main reason for looking for a solution to balding. Scalp micropigmentation is a fantastic treatment that can accomplish this natural look very easily. The treatment mimics the appearance of the patient’s actual hair follicles by strategically placing pigments in the areas that are thinning, or indeed balding to closely match what the real hair would actually look like. Extreme care is taken in selecting the pigment colour, the shape of the hair design relating to the patients facial features, with the practitioner using his or her vast amount of experience in Scalp MicroPigmentation to create the best result possible.
The process of restoring your hair using any hair procedure should involve first a consultation with an expert. Vinci’s experienced practitioners always take the time to listen and assess the patient’s requirements, the realistic goals they can achieve with their required treatment, and give the best advice as to what Scalp MicroPigmentation can do for them. The client can also use this opportunity to find out more about his or her hair loss, learn more about this particular technique, and how it can can aid them to conceal their balding. Time and consideration should be given to patients before proceeding with the procedure, and understanding that this treatment is a permanent, and indeed life-changing decision is vitally important before doing the treatment itself, as it is difficult to reverse. Although the treatment will not cure hair loss it can successfully camouflage it.
The SMP process is divided into several sessions, depending on how much area needs covering, and the skins ability to absorb the pigment, can make each session take an average of three hours to complete. There is usually a seven-day recovery period in between pigmentation sessions to let the treatment settle-in and fade. This gives the technician time to observe how best to approach the succeeding sessions. The client then only has to make sure that the scalp is not touched immediately after the session, and treated with care whilst the skin settles down, and whilst it is healing to avoid interfering with the assimilation of the pigments with his skin. Eventually, scalp micropigmentation will provide the patient with a realistic looking covering of hair on the head, using pigments.
