Many people assume that hair loss only happens to men. However, a significant percentage of women experience hair loss. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 40% of women have visible hair loss by the time they turn 40. Women can lose their hair due to genetics or various life events, such as stress, surgery, childbirth, or the onset of alopecia. But whatever the reason, losing her hair can hurt a woman’s self confidence and quality of life.
When women lose their hair, they typically don’t experience balding in a set pattern like men do. Instead, they’ll usually experience diffuse thinning, with an even amount of hair loss around their scalp. Scalp Micropigmentation is actually particularly effective at camouflaging thinning hair that’s worn long, making it an excellent option for many women with hair loss. For this type of hair loss, SMP can be used to shade the entire scalp, part by part. The end result is the impression of a much thicker, fuller head of hair.
