Hair loss or thinning hair can be very distressing for both men and women and can happen for a number of reasons:
Thought to be caused by hormones and genetics. Symptoms include hair loss beginning at the temples or crown of the head for men, with women suffering with a more generalised thinning starting at the front of the head and continuing to the top of the head.
Typically causes patches of baldness but can cause complete baldness.
Caused by excessive pulling at the roots. This can be caused by brushing, straightening, plaiting or braiding.
Complete hair loss which can occasionally be initially cause by Alopecia Areata.
Hair loss due to scarring of the skin caused by physical or chemical injury.
An auto-immune disorder that stops the production of hair all over the body.
A medical/psychological condition in which a person frequently pulls out hair from their scalp or other parts of the body. The repeated damage to the hair follicle can slow hair growth and in some extreme cases can cause permanent baldness.
Although there are treatments available for hair loss such as topical applications or surgery - these don't always work for everyone.
So, what is scalp tattooing?
Basically, it's similar to traditional tattooing but using pigment instead of ink and only depositing tiny dots of the pigment into the upper layers of the scalp so much less painful! Each 'dot' replicates an individual shaven hair follicle and when combined with hundreds of other tiny dots it creates an illusion of a full head of shaven hair. The process can also be used to blend into any existing hair that is remaining creating the appearance of fuller/thicker hair.
This technique can also camouflage scar tissue from any previous treatments such a FUE/FUT hair transplants.
It should be noted that 3-4 sessions of this treatment will be needed to create the depth of colour required with results lasting up to 5 years - although this depends on things like sun exposure and lifestyle activities such as swimming which can fade the pigments sooner. Touch-ups treatments annually are recommended to maintain the desired look.
