As a hairstylist for over 20 years, I have tried everything to help my female clients with hair loss. I have been to countless hair loss shows, trying to find anything new out there that would help my female friends and clients. As a woman, we cannot just say “F*#k it, I’m going to shave my head!” I guess we can, but most of us really don’t want to shave our heads, so we resort to all kinds of shenanigans to keep our hair loss concealed. Women will use hair fillers, makeup, wigs, extensions, and anything else to help their hair look thicker and fuller. I have taken many classes for top hair pieces and extensions to try and help my clients look like they have a full head of hair. Some of these solutions do help my clients’ confidence levels and while some of these solutions do help, they are all expensive, tedious, and time consuming for the client. Around 30 million women just in the United States alone will experience noticeable hair loss. This is why I’m so thankful I found out about Full Micropigmentation when I did. I realized what a difference Female Density Treatments can make with Scalp Micropigmentation.
My first Scalp Micropigmentation Density Treatment model was a good friend of mine who has suffered from fine hair all her life and now more extensive hair loss as she gets older. This hair loss can be hereditary for the most part but can also result from damage to the hair, aging, lifestyle, having kids or hormonal imbalances. I worked on her first Scalp Micropigmentation Density Treatment last month, and within hours, she was ecstatic to see how much of a difference just one session was making. She texted me the next day to tell me how much she loved looking in the mirror and not seeing the thinning areas of her scalp anymore. She went on to say “Dawn, how wild is it that I can’t tell it was tattooed, yet I can’t see my glaring white scalp either!?” She loved how natural it looked! She was also pleasantly surprised with how low the pain level was. She said there were times she could have fallen asleep she was so relaxed.
After only one session of Female Density Scalp Micropigmentation on my friend, I realized how powerful this procedure really is. Not only for men, but for women as well! Now I’m hooked and want to help every woman that suffers from hair loss!! Most people don’t realize that hairstyles can cause hair loss. Tight ponytails, braids, cornrows, coloring, bleaching, or anything that is pulling hard on the root, can cause traction alopecia and/or damage the hair. If the hair follicles are damaged, the loss can be permanent. Vitamin deficiency, dieting (rapid weight loss), restrictive diets, hormone imbalances and over processing of the scalp (hair) are all common causes of hair loss. Anagen effluvium, which is a type of hair loss caused by toxic substances, including chemotherapy, radiation, and some medications. Sometimes this type of hair loss can also be permanent if the follicles are damaged. Telogen Effluvium is another type of hair loss. It is caused by extreme physical stress or shock to your body. It can be caused by surgery, having a baby, illness, or even losing a lot of weight. Extreme mental stress, abnormal thyroid, hormonal changes, medications, and supplements…these can all cause hair loss! Of course, some hair loss genes are caused by our predisposed DNA, but there are many things we can do to keep that hair as healthy as possible. There is also FPHL(Female Pattern Hair Loss). Which is caused by genes, aging, and menopause. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune skin disease that causes patchy hair loss on your head and possibly other parts of the body. Even though it’s usually not permanent, it can cause a lot of insecurities and hopelessness. All of these types of hair loss is what Scalp Micropigmentation is perfect for. And I’m so excited to help Women be a more confident version of themselves!!
Scalp Micropigmentation Density Treatments for Women are Life Changing! We obviously cannot give you new hair, but we can do the next best thing: give you the illusion of a Full Head of Hair by darkening your scalp underneath your hair. A typical Female Hair Density Treatment will take 3 or 4 sessions, with up to 50,000 follicle replications placed in each session! This is the kind of density that will help your hair look darker and fuller. By eliminating the contrast between the lighter skin and darker hair, we can create a natural Tinting effect on the scalp. This type of treatment takes many years to perfect which is why I have been training under Joe for the past year here at Full Micropigmentation, perfecting my art. For the client, you will typically be here anywhere from 4 to 8 hours for each treatment. We like to wait 2-4 weeks between treatments, so the pigment is completely settled into the scalp before we add another complete layer on your next session. These treatments are relatively painless, you can watch tv, sleep, or listen to music of your choice. There is no surgery, no cutting, no bleeding, and the results are instant, permanent, and life changing!
