Do you struggle with thinning hair and bald patches? If you do, you’re not alone!
The American Hair Loss Association reports that 85 percent of men deal with some level of hair loss.
Androgenetic alopecia is the name given to a condition due to which men lose up to 95 percent or more of their hair. The physical manifestation of this condition is also known as male pattern baldness (MPB).
What’s worse, thinning hair can have a devastating impact on your self-esteem. It can trigger depression, anxiety, and a range of other emotional issues. This is why scalp micropigmentation is emerging as a popular treatment.
Here’s a quick guide on what it entails.
Does Scalp Micropigmentation Damage Hair Follicles
This is the biggest myth that surrounds the procedure. Scalp micropigmentation is a minimally invasive process that does NOT damage your hair follicles.
The hair follicles are deep within the roots of your hair; micropigmentation sticks to the epidermal layer, so this damage is simply not a possibility.
It’s also important to note that this procedure doesn’t affect your existing hair in any way, and neither does it slow new hair growth. All it does is add depth between the hair follicles to make your head look fuller.
Does Scalp Micropigmentation Cause More Hair Fall
No, scalp micropigmentation doesn’t worsen hair loss.
In fact, it’s a treatment for people who are suffering through the trauma of hair loss! It allows you to revive your self-image and boost your self-esteem back to what it was when you had a full head of hair.
What To Do After The Treatment
While the procedure itself is safe, you need to take a few precautions after getting treated. This is precisely to maintain the look of the new change and protect your skin from any reactions.
This is why our experts suggest avoiding wetting your head for a few days post-treatment.
This includes washing it, swimming, and even being mindful of too much sweat. However, you are allowed to use a prescribed moisturizer during this time.
Once the precautionary period is over, your head will start to heal. Since the process involves minute punctures being made all over your head, scabs will develop while it’s healing.
Picking on them can increase the risk of infection and also risks ruining the results of the treatment!
