Alopecia is a medical condition that causes hair loss in the form of small bald patches on the head. In severe cases, Alopecia can cause complete hair loss. Nearly 6.7 million people in the U.S. suffer from Alopecia. If you are suffering from Alopecia, we have a simple yet effective solution for you at International Hairless. With our scalp micropigmentation procedure, we can conceal your alopecia hair loss by replicating hair follicles on the scalp.
Alopecia areata is a disease that can cause hair loss on the scalp, beard area, or other parts of the body. There are different types of alopecia such as alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, and alopecia universalis. With alopecia areata, there is only patchy hair loss, while alopecia totalis is complete hair loss from the scalp. The most severe type is the alopecia universalis where the complete loss of any area on the scalp and body. Some people are at increased risk of Alopecia due to their genetic predisposition and can suffer from androgenetic alopecia.
While alopecia can happen at any age, it usually begins in children and young adults. All skin tones and genders can lose hair due to alopecia, making it a concern for millions of people around the globe. While the hair can regrow in the bald patches, it can fall out again – which is what is called an alopecia relapse.
Each “episode” of alopecia can last anywhere from a few months to a year. Unfortunately, there is no cure for alopecia so if you suffer from this disease, you will need to rely on methods that can conceal the bald spots and thinning hair. The good news is that you can get scalp micropigmentation to help you manage the appearance of balding.
Scalp Micropigmentation Treatment Explained
Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a type of cosmetic treatment for hair loss on the scalp. It is like a scalp tattoo, but the process is more sophisticated than the regular tattoo. A trained practitioner uses a specialized SMP machine that is equipped with small needles that inject tiny dots of pigments into the upper dermal layer of the scalp. These tiny pigments mimic the appearance of real hair so any bald spots or thinning areas can get camouflage.
With scalp micropigmentation, you don’t get real hair or hair growth, but you create a highly realistic appearance of natural hair. The slight variation in size and depth of the pigments helps create the natural appearance of existing hair follicles. This procedure can work for alopecia, male pattern baldness, and other forms of hair loss.
Most clients see transformative results in just one session. However, if you have a larger area to cover, you may need to get multiple sessions. There is no extended rest period required after getting scalp micropigmentation, however, we still recommend spacing out your sessions a few days apart. In some cases, the number of sessions is used to add more density to the hair.
Benefits of Scalp Micropigmentation for Alopecia
There are several benefits to choosing scalp micropigmentation for your alopecia. You get natural-looking results that replicate the appearance of a full head. Regardless of the severity of your Alopecia, scalp micropigmentation can cover all bald spots. The pigments look like natural and thick hair even when observed from a close.
Once you have got the scalp micropigmentation procedure done, there is minimal maintenance to keep the look. The maintenance for a hair transplantation or a hairpiece is a lot more. For example, a hair transplant requires you to treat your transplanted hair with extra care, use certain hair products, and use medications to prevent infection. There is no extensive maintenance required for scalp micropigmentation.
Another benefit of scalp micropigmentation is that if your alopecia gets worse, you can simply get more coverage or density through scalp micropigmentation. With hair transplants or hair pieces, the hassle of extending coverage is often enough to discourage clients from not getting it. However, with scalp micropigmentation, you can extend coverage with just one session.
The results for scalp micropigmentation are immediate. This means you could walk into the clinic with bald spots and walk out with a full head of hair. The transformative potential of scalp micropigmentation is one of the reasons for the soaring demand for this procedure around the globe.

For women with alopecia, SMP eliminates having to handle consistent spot balding. SMP is also used in camouflaging scars with the blending of surgical scars and temples of the face. With repeated insertions of the needle into the dermal layer of the skin is known to stimulate, or bring back, the hair follicles. Every treatment is tailored specifically to each person’s needs.
