Hair loss can cause stress, no matter the reason behind it. It can be traumatic, cause emotional stress, and drop self-esteem, but solutions are out there! From topical creams to hair transplants, the options are overwhelming. We want to explain why scalp micropigmentation should be on your possible hair loss solutions list.
Why Should You Consider Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp micropigmentation is relatively simple and can cost anywhere from $400 to $1,200 depending on your scalp, your treatment needs, the location of the SMP company you choose, AND how experienced your SMP technician is. The cost may seem steep, but it’s significantly less expensive than a hair transplant which can cost between $5,000 and $15,000. Our blog has tips for finding the right SMP company for you: Finding the Right Scalp Micropigmentation Provider – Rainier Ink.
Scalp micropigmentation requires minimal maintenance. After your scalp fully heals, you never have to think about your hair again. Unless you want to add density to your existing hair, you’ll never have to comb your hair again. The only maintenance you need to do is keeping your scalp clean (which you should be doing already) and shaving your scalp occasionally if you have remaining hair.
Scalp micropigmentation is a relatively quick process. It takes about three sessions of a few hours each to complete treatment, and you don’t have to take off work for recovery! You’re awake and “hanging out” with your technician for a few hours as they work on your scalp.
Recovery from scalp micropigmentation treatment is quick, and you don’t need to miss work while doing it! It only takes a maximum of two weeks to heal from scalp micropigmentation, while recovering from a hair transplant could take up to two months IF your body accepts the transplanted hair.
Anyone Can Get It
Typically, bald men take advantage of scalp micropigmentation; anyone can do it! Scalp micropigmentation not only covers bald spots but can also restore the hairline, add density to existing hair, and cover scalp scars!
Scalp micropigmentation may take up to three sessions, but it’s permanent! You may need touch-ups every five to six years, depending on how well you follow the aftercare requirements. Hair transplants are also permanent but require much more post-treatment care, waiting on hair growth, and maintenance. Topical creams don’t always work and may only temporarily solve hair loss.
Scalp micropigmentation is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment option for hair loss. The pigment is placed just under the scalp skin in the epidermis using microneedles, so there are no surgical cuts that are more prone to infection. While hair transplants by a quality surgeon are also safe, there’s more risk for infection, bleeding, and treatment failure.
