Scalp Micropigmentation for Women

Over thirty million women in the US suffer from hair loss from genetics alone, excluding women with hair loss from stress, hormonal changes, or aging. Hair loss creates significant emotional distress for many women and can profoundly impact one’s self-confidence. Many women look into the numerous hair restoration options, but most are costly and take months to see the results. Dr. Sumeet Jindal at The Jindal Institute For Youthful Aging understands the impact hair can have on a woman’s self-image and utilizes scalp micropigmentation to correct hair loss in the scalp instantly. Scalp micropigmentation, or SMP, uses the same concept as other micropigmentation treatments to fill in the gaps on the scalp and create the appearance of full, beautiful hair.

What Is Scalp Micropigmentation For Women?

Scalp micropigmentation works like micropigmentation for eyebrows, just on a larger scale. Micropigmentation uses tattooing techniques to fill in gaps in the brows and create a fuller arch. Scalp micropigmentation tattoos the scalp to create the appearance of hair. The tattoo artist or provider utilizes tiny dots to imitate the look of actual hair follicles. Men with hair loss or male pattern baldness often get scalp micropigmentation to give the illusion of a buzzed haircut. However, for women, scalp micropigmentation uses the same fine needles on the scalp but helps to fill in the gaps around the crown of the head. However, scalp micropigmentation does not regrow the hair; rather, it enhances the cosmetic appearance of hair for women with thinning hair or gaps in their hairlines.

SMP For Women's Treatment in Raleigh

The micro pigmentation treatment for women depends on the patient’s hair loss pattern and needs. The providers at  JIYA Cosmetics can use various techniques to correct the area of hair loss. Patients with thinning hair on the crown of the scalp can have tattooed follicles fill in the gaps to create volume, and patients who have a receding hairline can have the micropigmentation centered around their hairline and create more volume to frame the face. The providers will match the ink to the patient’s hair color and skin tone to create natural results.

Scalp Micropigmentation for Alopecia

Scalp micropigmentation can be a great solution for women who suffer from any form of alopecia. Whether a patient has patchy hair loss or total hair loss, scalp micropigmentation can create a stunning, sophisticated shaved head look for women who have alopecia. In fact, SMP is one of the best treatments for treating all types of alopecia including: 

  • Alopecia areata (small, patches of hair loss) 
  • Alopecia totalis (total hair loss of the scalp) 
  • Ophiasis alopecia (hair loss around the sides and lower part of the scalp) 

Frequently Asked Questions

The cost of scalp micropigmentation varies but can range from $2,000 to $5,000. JIYA Cosmetics charges $4,500 for scalp micropigmentation for all patients for the entire treatment process. Patients can discuss payment options and other treatments to add during a consultation.

Patients should expect to be in the session for at least two to three hours. Although, some scalp micropigmentation can be longer or shorter, depending on the amount of hair loss and desired results.

While scalp micropigmentation produces long-lasting results, it will not last forever. Generally, the ink will fade around the five-year mark, but results can sometimes last longer. Patients can then schedule a touch-up appointment to ensure their results last. Touch-up sessions are discounted for all of JIYA’s Cosmetics patients.

Scalp micropigmentation’s discomfort is primarily based on the patient’s pain tolerance. However, most patients report that the treatment feels more like a scratching or burning sensation than outright pain. Some patients report feeling utterly comfortable during the session. However, areas like the temples can be more sensitive, which can cause slight discomfort. Most patients’ treatment is relatively comfortable and requires no pain medication.

For women who want to try other options before turning to a hair transplant, scalp microneedling will not prevent them from being able to undergo the procedure. Some patients feel that scalp microneedling is insufficient and choose to have a hair transplant. This is entirely possible and does not need to be a concern.

Scalp micropigmentation does not typically look fake. However, it’s essential for patients to find the right technician or provider to achieve the best results. Dr. Jindal and his team at JIYA Cosmetics are trained to perform some of the best scalp micropigmentation’s in Raleigh. For patients, the training and dedication of the providers is the best way to ensure incredible results.

Typically, patients need more than one session to achieve the full results. During the first appointment, the provider will use a lighter shade of ink to ensure the scalp responds well to the tattoo and recovers correctly. After this, they will utilize follow-up sessions to apply darker shades, create the full effect, and perfect the fullness of the hair. Generally, patients need two to three sessions. 

Women who wish to add volume to their hair typically do not need to shave their heads before the session. Women who wish to have the buzzed head look should shave before scalp micropigmentation.
