What is male pattern baldness?

A high percentage of men will develop androgenic alopecia as young as in their early 20’s. Male pattern baldness is a hereditary condition and causes many males severe distress and a lack of confidence. Thankfully there is a remedy apart from the traditionally known hair transplant whereby either a strip graft is taken from the ‘stable’ hairline, usually at the back of the head; or the more recent individual follicular graft method (FUE).

Micropigmentation has been used successfully for more than a decade to create a shaved head appearance or ‘buzz look’ as some would call it. When carried out correctly the results are very convincing, but choosing the right technician is paramount.

How does scalp micropigmentation (SMP) treatment work?

Thanks to up-to-date innovation and developments within the micropigmentation industry, we can carry out illusionary procedures that mimic scalp hair growth and the ‘shaved head’ style. The treatment is more commonly known as SMP – scalp micropigmentation. The result is directly on the scalp and is not 3-dimentional, therefore does not replace tangible hair. For best results of this treatment the ‘buzz look’ is required which is both hip and trendy and sported by many who do not suffer with male pattern baldness. The procedure can also add the illusion of hair density where one is thinning, by adding tiny dotted implants of colour pigment which complement the existing hair and also recreate hairlines which can make one appear more youthful. The treatment is suitable for those suffering with male pattern baldness or alopecia; a condition which results in complete or partial hair loss.

The procedure is carried out over successive treatments depending on the severity of the condition. For your safety we only use single-use disposable consumables are used.

What will I expect in my consultation and treatment?

During your consultation we will have a practise run of drawings tounderstand the result you are aiming to achieve and to see if you will be happy to go ahead. We will be honest with you and fully explain the expected outcomes. We will need to evaluate your eligibility for the treatment by way of medical history checks. We may require written clearance from your GP, or a medical professional if you are under their care at the time of treatment.

The treatment site may be numbed prior to procedure using a topical anaesthetic cream for 30-40. The selected pigments are implanted into the shallow layer of the skin using very fine needle cartridges in order to avoid migration, although sometimes blowouts, can happen due to the delicate nature of the anatomy on the scalp. These can be taken out successfully with a saline wash.

For a full head treatment usually three to four 2-hour sessions are carried.

Pricing is very individual and can be priced as a treatment plan or for each session. A second session will be scheduled two to four weeks ahead. As we are not going over the exact location as in the previous session the appointments can be placed closer together in order to expedite the treatment in a lesser time.

After the treatment the scalp will appear slightly sore, red and darker than expected. This will lighten by approximately 40-50% over the 4-week healing period. It’s important to strictly follow the aftercare advice for maximum pigment retention.
