SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION

Hair Loss solution

SO WHAT IS

SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION?

Scalp Micropigmentation Is Not a Regular Tattoo.

Contrary to popular belief, the Scalp Micropigmentation procedure differs greatly from getting a tattoo. During the procedure, natural pigments are applied to an area of the scalp at the epidermal level, which replicates the natural appearance of hair follicles.

SMP is different from body tattooing due to the difference in the anatomy of the scalp skin compared to the rest of the body. Scalp micropigmentation does not penetrate your skin as deeply as traditional tattooing.

Unlike tattoo ink, smp pigment has a different composition and is achromatic – without red, blue or yellow hues. The procedure, if done correctly, will retain its color for years. The color will remain the same.

HAIR GROWTH

CYCLE

The hair follicle is a tunnel-like segment of the epidermis that extends down into the dermis. Most people will notice that the density of scalp hair is reduced as they grow from childhood to adulthood. The reason: Our scalps expand as we grow. Hair on the scalp grows about .3 to .4 mm/day or about 6 inches per year. Human hair growth and shedding is random. A random number, at any given time, of hairs will be in one of three stages of growth and shedding: anagen, catagen, and telogen.

The Anagen phase is the period of growth. The cells in the hair bulb divide rapidly creating new hair growth. Hair actively grows from the roots for an average of 2-6 years before hair follicles becomes dormant.

The length of this phase is dependent on maximum hair length, which varies between people due to genetics, age, health and many more factors.

The second phase of hair growth cycle is Catagen. This period is short, lasting only 2-3 weeks on average. In this transitional phase, hair stops growing and detaches itself from the blood supply and is then named a club hair.

Finally, hair enters it’s third and final stage called the Telogen phase. This phase begins with a resting period, where club hairs rest in the root while new hair begins to grow beneath it. This phase lasts for around 3 months. After this time, the resting club hairs will fall out to allow the new hair to come through the hair follicle. This is nothing to be concerned about and is a natural process that should go completely unnoticed. Each follicle is independent and goes through the growth cycle at different times so you don’t lose patches of hair all at once and only shed 50-100 hairs each day. Meanwhile, the other 80-90% of your hair will be in the Anagen phase. For optimum hair growth, hair needs to stay in the Anagen phase for a long as possible. This can be supported by a healthy diet and lifestyle, using products that care for your hair and avoiding unnecessary damage that may contribute to your hair growth cycle being disrupted. If Anagen phase is been disrupted, person starts experiencing Hair Loss.

THE SEVERITY OF HAIR LOSS CAN BE DIVIDED INTO 7 STAGES,

According to the norwood scale

Hair loss is not significant. The recession of hairline is not visibly noted.

Hair loss at the front and towards the back of the head. A slightly receding hairline. This represents a mature hairline.

The hairline is now receding towards the back of the head and is in a form identifiable to observers. A circle may also develop at the back of the head. The temples will look like M / V or U pattern. The area of recession can be having a few thin hair strands or completely a bald patch. This is the point from where scalp micropigmentation should be a serious consideration.

There is significant balding at the crown of the head (vertex). The hairline over temples has a slight recession only. (As in stage 2)

The forehead area becomes balder and the circle larger. Hairline recession over the temples is significant. There is a band of the scalp with normal hair in between the areas of balding.

The areas of pronounced hair loss are now only separated by a narrow border. The balding is more prominent at the temples and crown. The hair in the band is significantly scantier.

The hairline and crown areas are separated by extremely sparse hairs.

The band separating the 2 areas of hair loss is sparse and scanty. So the 2 areas of balding that are crown and temples are joined.

This is the most severe stage. There is a band of hair in the scalp which has sparse hair which goes around the sides of the scalp (Tibot). Scalp micropigmentation or a hair system are the only options available by this stage.
