Being able to achieve hair growth is essentially one of the reasons to use a balding solution. Camouflaging hair loss is also another method to accomplish relatively the same outcome. Those undergoing alopecia want to be liberated from its mental burden. This is usually caused by the anxiety that accompanies balding. A person may tend to feel more self-conscious of how they might appear to others. Growing their hair back might seem to be the first option but creatively concealing their alopecia could serve the purpose just as well. There are many treatments available today that can already achieve this. It is often selecting the best one that proves to be most challenging.
Hair transplant surgery is one of the methods that some people turn to for a balding solution. It is an effective means to increase the hair density of the scalp through repositioning of its healthy hair follicles. There are no new ones created so the patient can only make use of this procedure if he has an adequate supply to cover the bald areas of his scalp. It is also limited in its application. Male pattern baldness is where it finds its best use. This is not recommended for something like alopecia areata and it is impossible to benefit from this technique in a case of alopecia totalis. There is likewise concern about the scarring it leaves behind. Hair cannot be worn short without these marks becoming noticeable.
Achieving the most natural look is the best thing that a balding solution can provide. Scalp micropigmentation is one those techniques that can accomplish this easily. It mimics the appearance of the patient’s actual hair follicles through the use of well-placed pigments. The design of the hair pattern should provide a close match to how his real hair would look like. Care has to be taken in selecting the pigment’s size, shape, color and density. The practitioner has to take into consideration his client’s facial features and skin tone to create an accurate scalp micropigmentation design.
The restoration process should begin through consultation. An experienced practitioner will always take the time to interview his patient in order to find out his exact requirements, assess the type of balding and recommend ways to address it through scalp micropigmentation. The client in turn, can use this opportunity to gather more information about his hair loss, discuss the way he would like the hair pattern to appear and learn how this technique can aid him to conceal his balding. This should be conducted in a discrete and professional manner within a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Potential patients should not be made to immediately undergo a procedure. They must be provided with at least a full day to physically prepare for and mentally commit to their scalp micropigmentation. Shaving all their existing hair off will provide the practitioner with a blank “canvass” to layer the pigments upon. Understanding that this is a permanent life-changing treatment is important before actually going through with it. This will not cure hair loss. It will however be able to successfully camouflage it.
The process will be divided into sessions each taking an average of three hours to complete. Depending on the degree of balding and required intricacy of the design, an entire treatment will usually take more than two sessions to finish. There will be a seven-day recovery period in between them to allow the pigments to settle-in and fade. This gives the opportunity for the technician to observe how best to approach the succeeding sessions. The client only has to make sure that he does not touch any part of his scalp while it is healing to avoid interfering with the assimilation of the pigments with his skin. Eventually, scalp micropigmentation will be able to effectively provide an accurate semblance of hair without the use of any invasive surgery.
