Scalp Micropigmentation For Women

There are lots of reasons behind female hair loss, hormones, estrogen, pregnancy, anemia, emotional stress, and chemotherapy.  Scalp micropigmentation for women is a treatment that will combat all of these reasons behind female hair loss.

Female pattern baldness (fphl), also called androgenetic alopecia, is hair loss that affects women. It’s similar to male pattern baldness, except that women can lose their hair in a different pattern than men. Hair loss in women is normal, especially as you age. Up to two-thirds of women experience hair loss after menopause. Less than half of women will make it past age 65 with a full head of hair. Female pattern baldness is hereditary. It’s more common after menopause, so hormones are likely responsible. If you are experiencing signs of female pattern baldness then scalp micropigmentation for women may be worth considering.

Traction alopecia is female hair loss that’s caused by repeatedly pulling on your hair. You can develop this condition if you often wear your hair in a tight ponytail, bun, or braids, especially if you use chemicals or heat on your hair. Traction alopecia can be reversed if you stop pulling your hair back.

What is most important is that we can fix it all for you.

Female Pattern Baldness

Female pattern baldness (fphl) is hair loss that affects women. It’s similar to male pattern baldness, except that women can lose their hair in a different pattern than men. Hair loss in women is normal and hereditary. It’s more common after menopause, so hormones are likely responsible.

traction alopecia

Traction Alopecia

Traction alopecia is a form of female hair loss in which mechanical damage to the hair follicle is caused by repeated tension or pulling. This type of hair loss is common among anyone who wears their hair pulled back tightly, whether in braids, dreads, or a ponytail. It also occurs when tight headwear is worn every day.

alopecia areata

Alopecia Areata

Alopecia areata is a condition that causes hair to fall out in small patches, which can be noticeable. These patches may connect, however, and then develop into larger areas. The condition develops when the immune system attacks the hair follicles, resulting in hair loss.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is scalp micropigmentation (SMP)?

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a widely popular non-surgical female hair loss solution whereby minuscule deposits of pigment simulate hair follicles on the scalp. SMP for women, however, is extremely intricate and not a mere “hair tattoo.” We use different pigments and needles to accurately simulate tiny hair follicles.

How long does scalp micropigmentation last?

SMP for women is permanent, however, the injected pigment lessens in circumference very slightly over time. While this is not technically fading, the scalp will benefit from a touch-up session every 4-6 years. This nearly imperceptible decrease in circumference happens because macrophage cells in the human immune system will gradually break up and disperse pigment from any procedure, albeit extremely slowly.

What will my head look like immediately after treatment?

Expect some redness which will subside after a day or two.

Is SMP painful?

Although each client’s pain sensitivity differs, SMP for women is much less painful than a traditional tattoo. SMP needles are so thin, some customers say they feel almost nothing. When asked to rate their pain levels, most SMP clients report 1-3 on a scale of 1-10.

Can SMP be removed?

Yes, SMP can be removed with an electro-optic Q switched laser, which is used to heat and break up SMP pigmentation for easier absorption by phagocytes in the dermis. It can also be removed by a trained professional using a saline removal technique. SMP is easy to remove because the pigment isn’t deposited as deep as traditional tattoo ink.

Does insurance cover scalp micropigmentation?

No, sorry. Scalp micropigmentation for women is a cosmetic procedure by nature, so it is rarely ever covered by medical insurance. It’s worth checking with your insurance provider about potential coverage since policies vary as do personal circumstances.

Is scalp micropigmentation safe?

SMP for women is a non-surgical hair loss solution. Needles deposit pigment below the upper layer of the skin, similar to a body art tattoo. The procedure is very safe when performed by a professional.

How is SMP different than a regular tattoo?

Unlike traditional tattooing, SMP pigment is deposited near the epidermal layer rather than deep inside the dermal layer. SMP can be removed by laser much more easily than traditional tattoos.

Will I be able to go in the sun?

We recommend always using a hat if you are exposed to increased exposure to sunlight, like if you were to go to the beach, an amusement park, etc. This will help to retain the ink its longest. No matter what, for the first 30 days you must cover your head with a hat or sunscreen.

What is the treatment process and how long is one session?

Depending on the level of female hair loss, the first treatment session generally takes 1-3 hours while the second and third session takes 1-2 hours. Each session is performed 1-2 weeks apart with the average client receiving 3 sessions.

What should I be cautious of in the days following my treatment?

In the first 4 days following treatment, avoid getting your head wet while showering, sweating, scrubbing, shampooing, topicals, and long-term exposure to sunlight. It’s okay to lightly dab the area with a wet cloth, but do not soak the head. After 4 days, it’s okay to shower (lightly) without shampooing the head or scrubbing. After 10 days, you can resume your normal activities, but it’s still best to avoid long term sunlight for 30 days.

How much does scalp micropigmentation cost?

This cost of SMP for women varies per client.  We base the cost on how much of the treatment needs to be applied and by how many sessions are needed per client.  We offer FREE consultations for everyone. During the consultation, we will be able to assess your scalp and from there we can judge approximately how much treatment and how many sessions you will need to repair your female hair loss.

Does micropigmentation look natural / real?

Scalp micropigmentation looks incredibly real, as long as it is applied correctly. Many of our clients say their family, friends, and co-workers say they look younger or something looks different about them, but no one ever knows what it is that has changed and that’s what we want when it comes to female hair loss!

Does SMP stimulate hair growth or help grow my hair back?

No, sorry, scalp micropigmentation will not grow your hair back. However, SMP gives you the look of a thicker, more full head of hair.
