Finding the perfect method to address a balding condition has yet to be found. To date there is still no known cure for hair loss. Scientists and researchers are focused in their quest to find the elusive combination of factors that could eventually lead to a total remedy. At present, there are a variety of products and services that can effectively address balding. The consumer should always be diligent however to weigh its advantages against its disadvantages before engaging in any treatment.
In terms of fast and efficient results, a scalp micropigmentation (SMP) procedure is perhaps one of the leading remedies available. It can be used for almost every balding condition and could also work seamlessly with a client’s existing hair. Daily maintenance through cleansing and moisturising the scalp is mainly what is required to care for an SMP. Regular trimming of growing hair every couple of days is recommended if a “just-shaved” style is adopted for a patient’s scalp. That is really all it takes to maintain the integrity of a scalp micropigmentation treatment.
Determining the disadvantages of this procedure is a difficult task. It could be an exercise that could prove to be futile if it is based upon objective merits. Subjectively however, it can be open to some criticism. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and these are a few of the more common ones gathered.
The permanence of a treatment can be troublesome for those who would like to have it removed. It would require a visit to a laser removal clinic, entailing additional expense upon the patient. Certain hair pattern designs may have been a good match for a younger man though it may slowly become awkward looking as he ages. There has yet to be a case however where a client required his entire treatment removed. Its permanent feature is one the reasons why a growing number of prospective clients would like a procedure done. It frees them from the constant need to worry about how their scalp appears. Being able to redesign it is easy through laser removal and reapplication. How frequent this should be done remains with the patient.
Scalp micropigmentation is a collection of well-placed two-dimensional pigments that create a semblance of three-dimensional hair follicles. Some might be taken aback when they touch a former patient’s scalp expecting a rough surface only to be greeted by the sensation of bare skin. This should not be viewed as a negative because it is but a testament to the quality of the procedure. To presume that three-dimensional characteristics would be exuded by a two-dimensional treatment would probably be asking for more than what is possible.
Even if is considered a permanent treatment, it is still susceptible to fading. This might be one of the aspects that can be improved upon. It can be remedied through touch-up visits to the clinic. The technician should be skilled enough to avoid layering the additional pigments in such a way that it could result in a blur as some people have experienced. This defect however is actually more on how the specialist refreshes the pigments and not upon SMP itself.
Those who enjoy being outdoors might be the most affected if they have SMP. To minimise fading, patients are required to avoid direct sunlight as much as possible. This can be immediately addressed by wearing a cap. Getting a tan or going out for a swim however might be among the disadvantages of having an SMP. It would be hard to do so without having it fully exposed to the sun.
Be that as it may, there are definitely more things going for SMP than against it. Any disadvantages are mainly a matter of opinion or through human error. Fading is also easily addressed by going back to the clinic to refresh the pigments.
