If you suffer from Female Pattern Baldness or suffer with any form of Alopecia you have limited options. Most women turn to camouflaging after not achieving the desired results from medication or diet adjustments.
It is believed that 1 in 3 women suffer from hair loss. Some only experience symptoms after pregnancy or major surgeries but often it is linked to styling methods where harsh products, over exposure to heat or constant pulling due to ponytails or braids (Traction Alopecia) leads to thinning hair.
In some cases, the common form of Alopecia Areata that leaves bald patches, is an auto immune disease that can be triggered by stress or shock at any point during life.
After some medical treatments like chemotherapy or other invasive treatments temporary hair loss may occur and in many cases the hair never returns to its original thickness or density.
Hormonal changes, HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) treatments or thyroid abnormalities are also known to cause hair loss. Diabetes has also been linked to be one of the causes of thinning hair.
A great option to camouflage thinning hair and give the illusion of fuller more denser hair by creating the illusion of hair follicles with a medical graded pigment that’s deposited in the skin, therefor reducing the appearance the naturally lighter colour of the scalp compared to the darker hairs.
Scalp Micropigmentation is suitable for:
- Hairline Reconstruction
- Scars & Camouflage
- Hair Transplant Enhancement
- Density fill (thinning hair, diffused hair loss)
- Full head (hair loss/baldness or near hair loss)
We can restore your hairline to look natural and return it to its former style. Each hairline is bespoke to make sure it meets your needs and achieves the look you are hoping for.
The procedure uses tiny needles to implant pigment into the dermal layer of the skin to create the appearance of multi dimensional hair follicles and therefor a realistic illusion of a natural hairline.
Unlike male pattern baldness the Female Pattern Baldness (FPB) usually is spread out evenly over the whole scalp. It doesn’t typically affect the hairline, nor does it usually create a bald spot at the crown which makes it ideal for density fills.
The biggest problem sufferers of FPB experience is the obvious contrast between the hair colour and the pale skin tone of the scalp. By adding additional follicle imitations everywhere between the existing hair this contrast is minimised and therefore gives the illusion of fuller hair and the emphasis is taken away from the light scalp tissue. The effects are similar to spray fibres or density powders with the difference that this Procedure is permanent. If you are tired of applying fibres or powders daily and would like a confidence boost, then Scalp Micropigmentation is the right treatment for you.
Scalp Micropigmentation can be the ideal Solution on many hair and skin types and tones. Hair loss is thought to affect one in three women and is known to massively effect the confidence of women and is strongly linked to anxiety.
Scalp micropigmentation can be used to cover the scalp or fill in large bald patches to create the image of hair coverage.
This is a non-surgical solution that does not require you to take any medication orally or topically, has no down time and will women to regain their confidence – for most women it is a positive life changing Procedure.
Scars & Camouflage
Scars & Camouflage
The number of clients that turn to Scalp Micropigmentation after a failed hair transplant is ever growing. Even if the transplant was successful many are left with scars that look very unsightly and cause just as many problems as the thinning hair itself.
Scalp Micropigmentation is a great way to camouflage these scars and blend into the surrounding follicles. It would require you to have slightly longer hair style to cover the scars but that usually emphasises how thin it still is at the front.
There are two kinds of scars after transplant procedures: FUT and FUE.
FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) leaves linear scars that most of the time run from side to side and depending how many donor hairs were required there can be multiple scars on top of each other.
The more commonly used method is FUE (Follicle Unit Extraction) and leaves lots of small dots spread of the whole donor area.
It is very effective to cover these scars with Scalp Micropigmentation and results are usually undetectable.
It can also be used to cover any other scars, including surgical scars.
Due to hair being associated with femininity as well as the lack of hair giving the appearance of illness most women suffering from full hair loss are looking for suitable solutions to camouflage the bare scalp. Even so the proffered solution in many cases will still be wearing a wig or head scarf, some women do not want to constantly cover their scalp as it is know that both of these can cause itching and sweating. In this case Scalp Micropigmentation is often the only other solution.
Hair Transplant Enhancement
Even after successful hair transplant, you can often be left with unsatisfactory amounts of density. Scalp Micropigmentation is a great way to enhance the density even further and add additional texture into the background of the hair transplant.

Scalp Meso Therapy
Scalp Micropigmentation might not always be the first option we suggest, in some cases it can be necessary to begin with Meso Therapy to create a better canvas to work on; in other cases Meso Therapy, enriched with a specific growth factor that stimulates dormant hair growth might be enough to achieve the desired improvement; this depends on a number of factors and needs to be discussed with one of our expert Practitioners.
Boost / Refresh
Even though Scalp Micropigmentation is a permanent enhancement; we are carrying out treatment on the skin, which is a living organ and constantly exposed to environmental factors therefore a refresh or boost appointment is highly recommended every 3 to 5 years and is essential in ensuring you maintain a fresh and realistic look.
