No man wants to become bald. Before there was scalp micropigmentation for men (or SMP), there were many doctors and others who promised to “cure” or cover up male pattern baldness. None of these options were/are ideal because they were either gimmicks that didn’t work, hairpieces that are uncomfortable and expensive, or they required actual surgery, and many times that doesn’t work either.
Baldness in men comes from many different things and looks different on every male. Some men begin to lose their hair very early in life, where others it on sets later in life. Most men will experience some sort of hair loss. Doctors feel that hormones play a large role in male hair loss, but they don’t rule out other factors like diet, stress, and medications that can also contribute to hair loss. Androgenic alopecia is identified by a receded hairline and where the hair continues to grow it becomes thinner as the follicles weaken. This is the most common form of baldness in men today.
