Scalp Micropigmentation: The Unique Hair Loss Treatment

To be experiencing hair loss, is a rather disturbing thing. For both men and women, regardless of the age. Whether alopecia areata (medical term for hair loss) is a result of too much stress, eating disorder, nutrient deficiency or a disease, it hurts to see hair thinning and falling out. Although majority of men claim hair loss has had no effect on their lives nor how they perceive themselves, the sad truth is that pattern baldness affects self-esteem and self-image.

Although there are many hair loss treatment options, majority (most, but not all) are labeled as ‘snake oils’, since the majority of them aren’t approved, and basically everything that is not approved is just a waste of money and time. There are few proven hair loss treatment methods that have changed the lives of many men. One such is scalp micropigmentation.


It is a rather different hair loss treatment; it doesn’t include any chemicals, no pills, no massages; it’s a simple aesthetic procedure that hides the bald spots. Here are the basic of the scalp micropigmentation in a nutshell.

  • Who is the treatment for? 

This hair loss treatment is suitable for both men and women that battle hair loss. Whether it is crown balding, hair receding, complete or near complete hair loss, alopecia or diffused hair loss, scalp micropigmentation can help.

  • What is it?

Scalp micropigmentation is a tattooing procedure where the scalp is tattooed with tiny dots giving the look of a shaved head. Basically, a colour that is most close to the natural hair colour is tattooed into the scalp, making the scalp less visible. The procedure is not very painful, however anesthetics are used to numb the area that will be treated. The treatment is permanent, thus the colour is retained, unlike regular tattoos that change colour over time. Besides being permanent, the treatment can be adjusted (if your hair starts becoming gray) or reversed in some cases.

  • Should I get it and does it cost a lot?

If you are experiencing severe hair loss, and have bald spots on your head, you should consider this hair loss treatment. Moreover, if you have any scars, burns or birthmarks, it can be a good way to cover them. The scars of previous hair transplanting can also be camouflaged with this procedure. And generally, if you have thin hair, and you wish for it to appear fuller, it’s a good option to consider. As for cost, do your research first; many practitioners offer this hair loss treatment, thus the price ranges from $700 – $4200.
