hair lossIn the past, if a person was starting to lose hair, his or her only options were wearing less-than-convincing wigs or undergoing hair transplant, which could leave scars.

Today, there’s a third option: micropigmentation, the state-of-the-art hair tattoo.

A Modern Solution for Hair Loss

Hair loss can be distressing, particularly when it occurs earlier than expected. The auto-immune condition Alopecia is one cause of hair loss that occurs when the immune system attacks the hair follicles. It may happen in unsightly patches or all over the body and affects anyone of any age.

Another cause of hair loss is male pattern baldness. Hereditary baldness affects many men as they get old, causing receding hairline.

Micropigmentation injects dye into the scalp to give the appearance of recently shaved hair growing back. It can be used to disguise baldness or to make a head of thinning hair seem thicker. Thinning hair happens because of aging, but it can also occur in response to medications or hormones after childbirth. Micropigmentation is so realistic that no one will be able to tell it isn’t real hair.

Suitable for Sensitive Skin Types

Scalp micropigmentation clinics in Las Vegas offer hair tattooing with organic pigments, rather than inks, to suit even the most sensitive skin. Natural pigments are non-toxic and easily accepted by the body. If the hair loss occurred due to psoriasis or other skin conditions, it might be a viable treatment option.

For the ultra-realistic appearance of hair, micropigmentation uses permanent makeup to tattoo ‘hair’ onto the scalp. It covers bald patches and can make thinning hair seem fuller, giving people back their confidence without the use of wigs.
