Can Scalp Micropigmentation Prevent Balding?

The short answer to this question is no. Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) cannot prevent balding; however, it can help ease the process of balding. Scalp micropigmentation is a hair loss solution that creates the illusion of hair follicles. For men and women who are bald, SMP will create a close-shaven haircut look. However, for men and women suffering from thinning hair, SMP can make their hair look much fuller. This is where the scalp micropigmentation procedure can help ease the balding process.

(For those who are unfamiliar with the scalp micropigmentation hair loss solution; here’s a quick summary of what scalp micropigmentation is. )


According to the American Hair Loss Association, 85% of men will experience some form of visible baldness by age 50, and to many people’s surprise, so will 40% of women.There are a ton of various factors that can be attributed as to why the majority of men and most women experience hair loss. Factors such as age, genetics, stress, smoking, drinking, diet, medications, medical conditions; the list can go on and on. The point is, there are many factors in our day-to-day lives that contribute to baldness. Some out of our control, some within.  


Hair Loss Solution Products and Supplements:

There are many hair products and supplements that are out on the market place today to prevent baldness and hair loss; however, the reality is, most are not long term solutions. An even larger concern is the potential side effects of these products and supplements. For example, the side effects of a very popular hair loss solution shampoo are as follows:

  • severe scalp irritation
  • unwanted growth of facial hair
  • chest pain, fast heartbeats
  • swelling in your hands or feet, rapid weight gain
  • a light-headed feeling, like you might pass out
  • headache, dizziness, confusion
  • Flushing, warmth, redness, or tingly feeling

If you’ve ever experienced any of these side effects, as a result of one product or another, then you know how frustrating the hair loss journey can be. Once the side effects occur, you wish you had never even tried.

Other Hair Loss Solution Options:

Balding is a very common issue and although it is known to take a blow on an individuals’ self-confidence, it doesn’t have to be that way. Luckily, hair loss solution products and supplements (with scary side effects) are not the only solution. Scalp micropigmentation is a natural hair loss solution with little to zero side effects. The possible side effects, including; reaction, infection and color condition are largely dependent on the artist you chose to perform scalp micropigmentation. Do your due diligence before deciding on an artist. Be sure that they have a good reputation in the industry and samples of their work that they can show you.

How Can Scalp Micropigmentation Help My Balding Process?

So, you’ve started balding, but you still have some hair. It’s a bit longer; however it is thinning. That’s okay. Scalp micropigmentation can be performed on longer hair, and that is actually how we ease the balding process. A good scalp micropigmentation artist will assess the natural thinning and/or balding patterns of your scalp. He or she will then fill in the gaps using scalp micropigmentation, by essentially tattooing what look to be hair follicles onto the scalp. The specialized technique that is used during scalp micropigmentation is what gives the illusion of fuller hair density. In other words, scalp micropigmentation will make it look like you have a fuller head of hair.
