Androgenic Alopecia, one of the most common forms of hair loss, is not the result of stress or wearing a hat every day, or having your hair in a ponytail. It also is not caused by nutrient deficiency or by the sebum. This form of hair loss occurs as a result of a hormonal imbalance or genetic predisposition. Simply said, if you have been diagnosed with alopecia, you are losing your hair because of the genes you inherited from either parent. Your follicles are more sensitive to the changing hormonal activity in the scalp. At some point, the follicles become more sensitive to hormonal changes, and experts do not know why this happens. This hair loss problem is common among people younger than 20, but kids and adults may also be affected.
As hair loss is becoming a more common problem for both men and women, there are many hair-loss treatments available. However, not all are effective. Lately, more popular hair loss treatments have been through scalp micropigmentation. It is used to treat male baldness and is an ideal solution for men who like the shaved-head look. This hair loss treatment uses pigments–color is first matched to the natural hair color of the patient, and then placed into the scalp of the patient to create the look of a shaved head.
Scalp micropigmentation hair loss treatment costs less than hair transplantation. In fact, the procedure is about 1/3 less than a surgical hair transplantation. Also, with this treatment, there is no need to use any medication after surgery to recover, saving you any post-procedural costs.
Another great benefit of this hair loss treatment is that no incisions are used, reducing the risk of infection. Moreover, it is pain-free because of the use of local anesthesia. Furthermore, you will see immediate results.
Perfect Illusion Of a Real Shaved Head
Unlike wigs, hair extensions and other hair pieces, scalp pigmentation hair loss treatment offers the realistic illusion of a shaved head. With hairpieces, regardless of the quality, people will notice that they are not real. With scalp pigmentation, your friends, co-workers and neighbors will think you are just following the latest hair trend.
Fast Healing Time
Scalp pigmentation offers fast healing, usually from two to four days. Almost all patients are able to return to work and other activities within two days. What is most important about this hair loss treatment is that it can be color-restored and updated, regardless of your previous color. In addition, the color can be customized depending on the client.
