Hair loss is a fact of life for many men all over the world. In fact, 40% of men aged 35 or older show signs of visible hair loss.
Hair loss can be due to a number of different factors such as genetics, diet and general health. However, hair loss is believed to be mostly driven by genetics. Hair loss genes are inherited from either of our parents and once it begins, there is not much you can do to completely reverse it.
The severity of male pattern baldness only increases with age. For a lower percentage of people it can begin in their 30s, and this becomes more pronounced the older you get.
Taking care of your hair, eating well and generally taking care of yourself can help slow things down a little. But rather than waste thousands on unsuccessful hair transplants, there is another method that provides the best long term solution possible, instantly. The name of the treatment is scalp micropigmentation, otherwise known as a hair tattoo. If you haven’t heard of it before, read on below to find out answers to common questions.
Common Scalp Micropigmentation Questions Answered
As scalp micropigmentation is a hair loss solution with instant results, there can often be a few questions which are answered below:
Q1. A hair tattoo for bald men is a non-surgical permanent solution to hair loss, but does it work?
The simple answer to this question is yes. Scalp micropigmentation is in no way similar to a hair transplant. Natural pigments are applied to the top of the scalp. This recreates a realistic hairline based on the colour of your hair. It will not make your hair grow any more, or affect your hair follicles in any way.
All you have to do to maintain it is to shave every 1-3 days. This is to keep your hair below a 0.5 grade level. It really couldn’t be any easier.
Q2. How long does it take to work?
As this is a hair tattoo you will see results straight away. The first session involves the application of a lighter pigment colour. They then adjust it to ensure a perfect match in the second session. It usually takes a minimum of three sessions to complete. The practitioner will advise you at the start and after the completion of each session.
Q3. How long does it last?
There are two options available to you. A semi-permanent or permanent style.
Semi-permanent only lasts for a very short space of time. However, permanent solutions are more cost effective as it does not require extra top-ups or treatments.
Q4. Does scalp micropigmentation look good?
Having the procedure done by a professional practitioner will ensure it looks completely natural. Not only do they match the new hairstyle to suit your age, but also your hair colour and skin tone.
They understand the importance people place on their appearance. The other great thing is they have all used the service themselves. This is what marks them out from other providers. An amazing attention to detail gives assurance to new customers who may feel a little uncertain at first.
