Am I a Good Candidate for Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a remedy for hair loss that’s suitable for many different situations. It’s an option many men turn to when other hair loss treatments have failed them. And, unlike other ways of dealing with hair loss, Scalp Micropigmentation is 100% effective. That’s because it’s literally a cosmetic tattoo that makes it look like you just got a fresh buzz cut!

Wondering if you are a candidate for scalp micropigmentation? Here are some reasons scalp pigmentation might be for you.

Androgenetic Alopecia

Androgenetic alopecia is the technical term for male pattern baldness. When enzyme type II 5-alpha reductase makes contact with testosterone it produces dihydrotestosterone (DHT). When this reaction occurs on the scalp of someone with a genetic predisposition for hair loss, androgenetic alopecia occurs.

SMP is a great treatment for male pattern baldness because in two to three sessions you’ll have a permanent solution for all your aesthetic needs. Your SMP treatment will always look sharp and require minimal upkeep!

When Propecia And Rogaine Don’t Work

Finasteride (Propecia, Proscar, etc) and minoxidil (Rogaine) are the only two FDA approved forms of hair loss treatment. Hims, Keeps, Roman, and other DTC brands treating hair loss have boosted the sales of these two medications by making them available through subscriptions you get online.

There are a few reasons you may not want to take finasteride or minoxidil: adverse side effects or they simply don’t work on you. Additionally, finasteride only works on people who have androgenetic alopecia, so if you’re losing hair for another reason (perhaps due to illness or stress), it won’t help at all.

Then there’s the issue that if you start taking these meds too late they won’t make much of a difference. That’s because finasteride or minoxidil only halt and somewhat reverse hair loss. They won’t bring back a full head of hair! Luckily, scalp micro pigmentation makes it look like you’ve got a full head of hair that you’re just opting to keep buzzed!

When Hair Fibers are No Longer an Option

Hair fibers are used as hair loss concealers to give the appearance of thicker hair. These fibers cling onto your existing hair to reduce the look of thinning or lifeless hair. Some common hair fibers include Toppik, Caboki, and HairMax.

However, hair fibers do not cure hair loss and are often a short-term crutch that does more harm than good. Most guys can’t use hair fibers when they sweat, if it rains or is windy, and will leave marks on anything your head comes near. Many guys that come to Scalp Micro USA have said that the first thing they throw away is their stack of hair fibers because it ends up being an added stress to an already difficult situation.

When You Don’t Want Hair Transplants

How Much Does a Hair Transplant Cost? According to Healthline, the answer is typically between $6,000 and $15,000. That’s enough to stop most people in their tracks. Add in the seriousness of the procedure, recovery time, and that it takes six months to a year to even start seeing results and you’ll realize why we see celebrities with hair transplants more often than we see co-workers with hair transplants. They take a lot out of you!

When Your Hair Transplants Leave Scars

When you get a hair transplant, hairs are taken either one by one using a punch tool (FUE hair transplant) or in thin strips (FUT hair transplant). This process often requires multiple trips and is also prone to leaving scars on the back of people’s heads. 30% of the clients who visit Scalp Micro USA get scalp micropigmentation to cover up hair transplant scars!
