Scalp micropigmentation

The Ultimate Modern Hair Loss Solution

Many people suffer from hair loss for a multitude of reasons, which can cause severe depression and anxiety. There is no cure for hair loss, but here at Carolina Scalp Centre, we have the ultimate hair loss solution to date that is changing the lives of people worldwide who are suffering from hair loss. Scalp micropigmentation, also known as SMP or a hair tattoo, is where we implant microdots of pigment into the scalp to replicate the look of hair follicles. This can help people suffering from complete hair loss, patched hair loss, scalp scars and thinning hair. This is all explained in the paragraphs below.

Male Pattern Baldness Can Be A Thing Of The Past!

Male pattern baldness is the most common cause of hair loss for men. The condition is usually caused by hormonal changes but is regularly linked to genetics. Men’s hair loss can occur in different patterns, usually determined by the Norwood scale from 1 to 7. The condition usually begins with a receding hairline and thinning of the hair on the crown of the head. With scalp micropigmentation, we can mimic the look of a full head of cropped hair. The pigment is implanted into the scalp (usually over the entire head) to restore the hairline and disguise the hair loss. This process creates a natural and convincing result.

Hair Loss Can Be Devastating To Women

It is more common for women to suffer with hair thinning rather than full hair loss. Like men, women also suffer with pattern baldness. Female pattern baldness is where the hair’s growing phase slows down and it also takes longer for new hair to begin growing. Hair follicles shrink, leading the hair that does grow to be thinner and finer. Just like for men female pattern baldness is caused by hormonal changes in the body. With scalp micropigmentation we can implant microdots of pigment in between the existing hairs on the scalp. These dots will not be noticeable but will completely change the look of your hair. The replicated hair follicles reduce the contrast between the hair and scalp then giving you the look of a fuller and thicker head of hair.

FUT & FUE Hair Transplant Scarring Covered!

Unfortunately no matter what type of hair transplant you get, scarring is inevitable. Some scars are more noticeable than others depending on what type of transplant they had and what hairstyle they have afterwards. There are two different types of hair transplant, that cause different scarring. 

  • FUT (follicular unit transplantation) -This is where thin strip of skin with hair is removed from the back of your head and divided into pieces, each containing 1 to 4 hairs (hair grafts) which are then placed into tiny cuts made in the scalp. The site where the hairs are taken is closed with stitches causing you to have a scar on the back of your head. 
  • FUE (follicular unit extraction) -The procedure for this is that the back of the head is shaved and individual hairs are removed 1 by 1 (grafts). The grafts are placed into tiny cuts made in the scalp, creating lots of tiny scars.

By using scalp micropigmentation we can replicate hair follicles and deposit them in and around the scar to blend them with the existing hair. By doing this we reduce the visibility of the scar drastically making it unnoticeable to those who are unaware it was there in the first place.

The Only Solution To Hair Loss Caused By Alopecia

Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that causes sudden and unexpected hair loss. There are many different types of alopecia that affect different areas of their body from scalp hair loss to full body hair loss. The most common form of alopecia we see is alopecia areata: the hair falls out in patches on the scalp. The hair can regrow in these patches but possibly could reappear elsewhere on the scalp or more than one patch can connect creating a bigger area of hair loss. Scalp micropigmentation can disguise these patches by filling the area with microdots that mimic the look of hair follicles. We can either treat the whole scalp which gives the look of a full head of completely shaved hair of we can treat just the patches to reduce the contrast between the scalp and the existing hair to camouflage the hair loss.
