Does scalp micropigmentation work on longer hair?

Hair loss in women, and in men who prefer to wear their hair long, can pose a real problem because the effect of balding, either through pattern baldness or alopecia can be much more obvious than it would be in a shorter style.

And because that visible effect can be so apparent, the potential resulting emotional and psychological consequences, such as loss of confidence and self-esteem, or poor body image, can be quite profound.

If this is an issue for you, you may have considered a range of possible solutions ranging from a hair transplant or immunotherapy to corticosteroids and over the counter ‘treatments’ such as those containing minoxidil.

If you’ve found your way to us, then perhaps you’re also thinking about how scalp micropigmentation can offer you a long-term solution that will allow you to keep your preferred hairstyle for as long as possible.

What does hair loss mean for men with long hair?

The biggest issue for men who wear their hair in a longer style and are suddenly faced with significant hair loss is that a receding hairline exposes the contrasting areas.

Scalp micropigmentation – or SMP as it is also known – can be highly effective in filling in the areas that your receding hairline has left behind, creating an impression of texture and a fuller head of hair.

Having the appearance of hair at the hairline is important because it is the hair loss here that is more obvious. By using SMP to in-fill where hair is missing, you may well notice that you also look and feel younger, as well as seeing the return of your self-confidence.

Scalp micropigmentation for hair loss in women with long hair

Hair is an essential part of a woman’s identity, and for women who suffer female pattern hair loss (FPHL) the effect of thinning hair can be even more acute than it is for men.

Typically, women don’t lose hair in the same way as men, but one of the consequences of female hair loss is that the scalp becomes visible when the hair is very thin – something that’s known as ‘diffuse’ hair loss.

How does scalp micropigmentation for long hair work?

Scalp micropigmentation uses a light specialist tattooing technique to replicate early hair growth and hair follicles that give the impression of fuller, thicker hair along the hairline.

SMP is most effective when you have sufficient remaining hair to enhance the overall effect of the treatment.

Scalp micropigmentation is a semi-permanent treatment that lasts for several years and is performed by highly trained and expert specialists who have years of experience providing hair loss solutions for people just like you.
