COMPLETE OR NEAR COMPLETE HAIR LOSS
Micro Pigmentation is often the ideal solution for clients who have suffered complete hair-loss. We are proud to be part of the solution which we have seen restore self-esteem in all ages of clients. We love that we sometimes hear SMP referred to as "sudden hairline gain"!
Many alopecia sufferers come to us to restore their hairline look. Alopecia can vary hugely in severity from one person to the next and the flexible targeted process of SMP allows us to help restore self-esteem in many alopecia sufferers.
SMP FOR HAIRLINE RECEDING
Balding men are in general agreement that baldness is a nuisance but they rarely agree on which is worse; crown balding pattern or receding. With SMP you don't need to debate this any further; SMP will camouflage wherever your area of concern is, leaving you with a cropped, strong and attractive hairline.
Almost 5% of women suffer from hair loss/thinning conditions; we can carry out exactly the same treatment for women who then have the choice of short or longer hair, because even on long hair, the micro pigmented areas will be much less noticeable than the bare scalp previously was.
DIFFUSED HAIR LOSS
Diffuse hair loss can affect both sexes at any age and can be caused by anything that interrupts the normal hair cycle, including emotional stress, nutritional deficiencies, and endocrine imbalances. It can be a stressful event for any man or woman, and SMP is an incredibly effective solution, restoring confidence and looks.
SKIN TYPE AND COLOUR
SMP is suited to all skin types and colours, White, Afro-Caribbean, Latino, Asian and mixed-race. Our innovative technology matches your follicle colour to provide a seamless, invisible blended match with any existing hair.
REVISION AND REVERSAL
As we age, we will tend to change our opinion on the best look for our hair and hairline. With this in mind, Micro Scalp Clinic has developed our specialist laser revision technique which can be used for a completely new look, shape and colour, or to tweak to suit new fashions and trends. Changes can include: changing the hairline position, raising the hairline to create an older, more receded look, changing side hair shape, addition of sideburns and changing the hairline shape. Although we have not had any requests for it, you can be reassured that complete reversal is an option, albeit an unlikely one. All of these revisions are done using a laser application.
Hair Transplant & Tattoo Treatment
Our pigment goes far less deep than skin tattooing so the laser removal is a much more straightforward and painless procedure, usually requiring only 1-2 sessions.
