Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) can be an effective option for women experiencing hair loss from various conditions, including female pattern baldness and Alopecia areata. SMP creates the illusion of fuller hair by replicating the appearance of hair follicles. Our Scalp Micro USA artists can perform this procedure to camouflage bald spots, scars, and thinning areas on the scalp.

What Is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)?

SMP is a cosmetic procedure involving the deposit of pigmented dots into the scalp to mimic the look of short hair stubble. The pigment can be customized to match your hair shade, which helps create a natural-looking treatment area. At Scalp Micro USA, the procedure is performed by trained artists experienced with female pattern baldness, thinning areas, and bald spots.

What Types of Female Hair Loss Can It Treat?

Multiple conditions can cause female hair loss, including:

  • Female pattern baldness
  • Alopecia areata
  • Cicatricial alopecia (scarring hair loss)
  • Trichotillomania (a disorder that causes hair pulling)
  • Chemotherapy-induced hair loss

SMP can be a treatment option for all of these conditions, depending on the severity. It can camouflage bald patches, even out a thinning hairline, and mitigate scalp shine. The treatment is long-lasting and can easily be adjusted to address future hair loss or thinning.

What Are the Benefits of SMP for Female Hair Loss?

Scalp micropigmentation has many benefits for those who are experiencing female hair loss, including:

Natural Appearance

Our SMP practitioners can alter the pigment’s shade to match your natural hair color and complement your skin tone. This is done by concentrating or diluting the pigment as needed. Whether you have a balding crown or want to darken your hairline, SMP can blend seamlessly with your existing hair.

Disguise Scalp Shine

Scalp shine, or scalp glare, can occur when the scalp becomes visible through the hair. Scalp micropigmentation can be used to camouflage scalp shine. This is accomplished by applying SMP on and around the shiny area, making your scalp less visible. By matching the pigment to your natural hair color, your artist can help create a more even appearance across your head.

Low Maintenance

While your SMP artist will recommend that you follow aftercare guidelines in the days immediately following your treatments, the overall maintenance required to maintain your results is minimal. There is no need for daily treatments or frequent check-ups. After receiving SMP, we only recommend that you limit extended sun exposure and moisturize.

Versatility in Hairstyles

After getting scalp micropigmentation, you can wear your hair in various styles without worrying about concealing thinning areas. You can trim your hair short or wear it pulled back, which may have been difficult to manage with diffuse hair thinning. SMP can also reduce the need to rely on hats or other accessories to disguise thinning or bald patches.
