What we can help resolve
MALE-PATTERN HAIR LOSS
Male-Pattern Hair Loss typically begins with a receding hairline that appears in a horseshoe pattern with a thinning crown. As it progresses, a rim of hair at the sides and back of the head remain resistant to loss. SMP can easily remedy this by restoring the hairline, adding density to the top and crown and creating a natural and undetectable blend into the sides and back of the scalp.
FEMALE-PATTERN HAIR LOSS
Female-Pattern Hair Loss generally causes even amounts of shedding all over the scalp, making the hair appear thinner. Women, however, do not lose all of their hair on the top of the scalp as some men do. Instead, parts often get wider, and the scalp appears increasingly pronounced. By replicating thousands of follicles, SMP will camouflage loss by creating the illusion of thickness by reducing the areas of noticeable scalp.
Alopecia Areata often results in a few localized bald spots on the scalp likely caused by an autoimmune disease. In the majority of cases, hair loss occurs in small patches. For most people, this loss is nothing more than a few affected areas, though in some cases, it can be more extreme, leading to complete hair loss throughout. SMP can fill in these patches by replicating hair follicle density from the adjacent hair to create a seamless blend.
Scar Concealment is a common request from people who have scarring in hair transplant donor areas or from head trauma. SMP is the best solution for camouflaging all types of scar tissue. Scars will need to be healed at least 1 year prior to the procedure. This allows time for the newly formed collagen to heal, stabilize and take pigment properly.
HAIR TRANSPLANT ENHANCEMENT
Hair Transplant Enhancement with SMP creates an ideal solution that otherwise could not be achieved. Often, hair transplants never look as thick as desired. Donor areas can be easily over harvested, and a desired level of thickness is difficult to achieve. Since hair transplants require a large investment and the transplanted hair is resistant to further loss, men usually elect for density procedures to keep their hair longer rather than opting for the “buzz cut” procedure. Hair transplants are enhanced by adding density to the scalp to create fullness similar to procedures for women.
REPAIR SMP FROM OTHER PROVIDERS
Repairing bad work from other providers is requested when procedures fade, pigments spread or turn blue/green, or replicated follicles are too large to realistically mimic real hair follicles. Improper application, inferior equipment, bad ink and artist inexperience are typically to blame. Some corrective procedures can be camouflaged, while others will require laser treatment to remove pigments.
