If you’ve been experiencing male pattern baldness, you may want to think about getting a hair transplant to treat your condition. It’s a highly effective way to reverse or slow the progression of hair loss, and it requires a series of surgical procedures over time. But have you ever wondered if men with hair loss could also consider micropigmentation?
Well, the good news is that the answer is a resounding yes. In this article, we’ll explore why men with hair loss should consider micropigmentation, what the treatment entails, potential risks, and other considerations.
What Is Micropigmentation
Micropigmentation is a procedure used to color, texture, or add details to the hair on one’s scalp. It’s often done to enhance the appearance of the hair, but it can also be used to cover up hair loss.
One of the best things about micropigmentation is that it’s completely non-invasive. Unlike hair transplantation, which requires a series of surgical procedures to take place over time, scalp micropigmentation for men is a one time procedure that you can have done in a single sitting.
How Micropigmentation Works
When a person loses hair, the hair follicle becomes smaller and smaller until it’s no longer capable of producing hair. The skin then gets a chance to recover and produce new hair. When that happens, the scab that forms at the base of the remaining hair will start to turn a color.
The pigment that forms the color is called melanin and is produced by the same cells that make the skin pigment known as melanin. The scab is then rubbed off, leaving behind a mark that exhibits the hair coloration.
Hair pigment is a common trait among mammals, including humans. It can be found in various places on the human body, including the lips, nipples, and scalp. For this reason, men with hair loss could also consider having a part of their scalp colored to give the illusion of more hair, or even fullness.
