Scalp Micropigmentation on longer hair

Our scalp micropigmentation solution for hair loss is synonymous with the shaven look, able to flawlessly replicate a full head of shaved hair. However for some clients, the option to maintain longer hair and still camouflage their thinning is another great option.

Scalp Micropigmentation on Longer Hair – How to Add Density?

Add density to create longer looking hair. Not all clients are comfortable with the idea of shaving their heads though. For some, they do not feel the style would suit them, or they may have restrictions placed on them by their occupation or the wishes of close family members.

SMP to Thicken Hair

Whilst we find that most clients choose the shaven look, a style that they like and usually get used to very quickly, some do have the option to keep their hair longer if they are a suitable candidate to do so. Many women choose this option, as do many of our male clients.

If you would like to speak to our team about your options then give us a call on 0845 625 0025 and a member of our team will be able to advise and give you answers to any questions you may have regarding the procedure. Contact Us

Scalp Micropigmentation for Thinning Hair

A female Skalptec client used scalp micropigmentation to hide thinning hair around her frontal hairline. This hair loss pattern is common, especially among clients who wear their hair in tight styles as this often causes traction alopecia.

A male Skalptec client was experiencing thinning around his frontal hairline. By maintaining the same hairline position, we were able to make his frontal hairline appear much thicker and fuller.

Thinning in the Crown Area

For clients experiencing thinning in their crown area. As long as the recipient still has reasonable coverage, scalp micropigmentation can be used to reduce the contrast between the hair and scalp and make the hair appear more dense.
