It seems like only yesterday when hair loss would be a taboo subject between two working class men down the local pub. There was a time when you’d have been laughed out of the door and potentially barred by the landlord.
Fast forward to a time when celebrities and sportsmen are openly talking about their hair loss and comparing results from hair transplant surgery. From columns in the national tabloids to TV interviews on primetime TV. No one raises an eyebrow anymore when someone famous proudly states “I’ve had a hair transplant”.
What these celebrity endorsements have done amongst many things is to make male grooming big business. Not just in the hair loss industry but from teeth whitening to male waxing. Its now OK for a working-class man to want to take care of himself and look good.
So where does Scalp Micropigmentation fit into all of this, I hear you ask?
Well, let me tell you! At ScalpSolutions.co.uk we not only work in the UK and Spain carrying out bespoke SMP treatments. We also work with one of the most recognised hair transplant clinics in the world. We know first hand that SMP is now being taken very seriously by Hair Transplant Surgeons globally. Not only as a stand-alone treatment but as a great addition for a hair transplant patient.
I say this because just a few years ago you may have found some hair transplant clinics looking down their noses at SMP, like it was the poor relative in the hair loss world. Well this is certainly no longer true.
We have had many hair transplant patients through our doors who simply haven’t had the density they had hoped to achieve through transplant alone. When the two treatments are married together that density can be achieved.
We have also had patients who have been abroad for a low-cost transplant and with excessive hair loss on the top section of the head simply haven’t had enough donor hair to cover it. But they have gone ahead with surgery in a desperate attempt to regain some hair only to be left wanting, with a really thin looking top section to their head. So, they end up shaving down anyway and are left frustrated and a few thousand pounds less in their pocket.
Maybe you have a transplant scar that you would like to make disappear? SMP again can work well with a hair transplant to make this happen.
Firstly, it is well worth stating that there is no one shoe fits all approach to hair loss. Every person is an individual. Yes, we see a lot of similarities with the recognised male pattern baldness and the different ways that people from all ethnic backgrounds lose hair. But It really does affect people in different ways.
So, ask yourself what hair style are you hoping to achieve? Do you think realistically it is achievable? There is no magic wand unfortunately however, we now find ourselves in probably the best position we have ever been in. SMP and hair transplant technology is now more advanced than ever, and I’m not just talking about the machinery either. Pigments and needles bespoke to SMP coupled alongside some fantastic training now available means results are simply the best they have ever been.
Your first step in all of this should be to speak with someone who can help support you and answer all the questions that you may have. You can spend hours online looking for answers and scare yourself half to death with some of the things you will find. Forget that!
ScalpSolutions.co.uk will support you by answering your questions in a confidential and ethical manner. Not looking what is best for us but what is best for you. Even if that means we refer you to a specialist from another field.
The first step is always the hardest one but the feedback we get is that it is also the most rewarding one. “I wish I’d done it years ago” is the standard feedback we get from our patients.
So, stop putting it off. Pick up the phone and give us a call or send a message. It will be the best thing you’ve ever done.
