It’s true that confidence comes from within. However, it is totally normal to feel confident when you look your best. If hair loss is making you feel any less amazing than you truly are, there’s a way to fix it and get back to loving yourself the way you should. Hair loss is not always an easy thing to deal with. While some people can accept hair loss as part and parcel of life, others feel let down and uncomfortable with it. The process of micropigmentation has been considered by many who have decided to not live with bald patches and give their confidence a good boost.
Also known as SMP, this procedure works by imitating hair stubbles to camouflage scars, add the appearance of density to thinning hair and restore a natural-looking hairline. Even those with alopecia can enjoy a perfectly quaffed look of a full head of hair. This treatment procedure is quite unique in the sense that the aesthetician can effectively:
- Replicate the patient’s hair follicles using state of the art equipment Exactly match the color of your remaining hair
- Construct the perfect natural hairline that complements your face How does scalp micropigmentation treatment works?
Scalp micropigmentation is an extremely advanced and innovative natural-looking solution . . . with a less invasive approach. At HD Beauty Permanent Makeup Academy, our highly trained and qualified scalp micropigmentation technicians use multiple small-sized needles and natural colour pigments to match your natural hair. They are trained to treat your scalp tactfully. To provide consistent results throughout your head, we use an advanced computer-controlled software system to deliver flawless and precise results.

Scalp micropigmentation allows you to have the illusion of permanent hair by placing tiny dots of hair on your existing hair. The microdots replicate your natural hair follicles. With scalp micropigmentation you don’t have to worry about taking a wig on or off. While a hair transplant is another solution for balding, it is not only costly, it can also leave you with nasty scars which is why scalp micropigmentation is such a viable solution.
Hair loss and the resultant consequences can trigger negative emotions in men and women alike. When you realize you are beginning to experience even the mildest case of hair loss, it is natural to seek for immediate solutions. One of the safest solutions is scalp micropigmentation.
With scalp micropigmentation, you get an illusion of a head that is full of shortly cropped hair by having ink pigments injected into your scalp.
This cosmetic procedure is a great alternative for people who do not want to undergo highly invasive procedures such as hair transplants. One of the biggest disadvantages of hair transplants is that recovery can take as long as eight months. At the same time, a hair transplant can leave you susceptible to a few side effects such as pain, swelling and itching. Scalp micropigmentation, on the other hand, is a non-invasive procedure that is not painful and heals in a matter of days. It is also safe as no chemicals are involved.
Of course, in a procedure like this where your facial appearance and confidence is at stake, you want to use the services of professionals who have a track record of delivering excellence for their clients. You don’t want to walk around the streets while trying to cover your head because someone somewhere did a lousy job while attempting a medical hairline tattoo on your head. One place where you are definitely not going to be disappointed is HD Beauty Permanent Makeup Academy.
SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION AS A HAIR LOSS SOLUTION
Some of the procedures and products promise to ignite hair growth in a short period. Unfortunately, most of these procedures fail to deliver on those promises. Patients are, therefore, left with piled up bills and prescriptions that remind them of failure. Scalp micropigmentation is an extraordinarily safe and viable procedure with a proven track record.
It is a slightly invasive cosmetic procedure where a scalp micropigmentation technician injects color pigment directly into the scalp. After the process, the patient’s scalp acquires the semblance of a closely shaved head. This procedure is permanent.
Scalp micropigmentation is recommended as a viable option whether you’re dealing with age-related hair loss, alopecia, thinning or extensive post-procedural scarring. It is also a great option when all you want is to add density to your hair.
Upon the onset of baldness, most people try to explore other options. These could range from hair transplants to temporary fixtures such as wigs. However, each of these solutions carries their set of disadvantages. Topical tonics, sprays and other over the counter options may be ineffective-even harmful. Hair transplants are high maintenance. Wigs and hairpieces are labor-intensive. Scalp micropigmentation, on the other hand, is a permanent, high-value, and low maintenance procedure with many amazing benefits.
So if you are worried about not being confident walking the streets of Toronto with your balding head, worry no more. HD Beauty Permanent Makeup Academy has some of the best talent when it comes to scalp micropigmentation. We understand that your self-confidence and swag means everything to you. Everyday, we are bombarded with emails from our clients thanking us for restoring their hairlines.
Here are the things you need to know about scalp micropigmentation:
1. IT DOES NOT FADE AWAY
This is one of the similarities between scalp micropigmentation and tattooing. In fact, scalp micropigmentation is also commonly referred to as hairline tattooing. Once you undergo the procedure you don’t have to worry about the new hairline fading away after a few years. The staff at HD Permanent Makeup Academy will guide you on what the procedure requires.
After this scalp pigmentation procedure, it will feel like you actually got your hair back. You will not have to worry about the results fading away after a short while and exposing your best kept secret. If at all there is any fading, it is very subtle and gradual over a long period of time.
Androgenetic alopecia accounts for 95% of hair loss in women. This condition can be attributed to age, hormonal changes, stress, diet, medication, medical conditions among other causes. Hair loss may result in low self-esteem, decreased emotional well-being, depression, and anxiety in women. With some hair loss treatment procedures like hair transplant, patients end up losing even more of their hair volume within a couple of months. With the scalp micropigmentation, you will get your desired hair volume immediately after the treatment.
Finally, this procedure offers the patients who are looking to address baldness or receding hairline a permanent solution. With the right care, your SMP results can last up to 2-4 years before fading takes place but it will also depend on so many factors including the person’s lifestyle, immune system and of course their own preference.
2. YOU NEED TO WORK WITH THE BEST SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION TECHNICIAN
In order to be a reputable scalp micropigmentation expert, you need to go through a highly intensive training program. You also need to be a person who loves and is committed to what he or she does. At HD Beauty Permanent Makeup Academy, we are big on quality control. We have some of the most stringent vetting procedures to ensure that any clients who walks through our doors leaves with a smile on their face.
3. What Is the Main Purpose?
This procedure was developed as a solution for scalp and other hair conditions. At its best, scalp micropigmentation creates an illusion of fuller and thicker hair. In fact, it’s fair to call it a hair concealer. It creates a very realistic look by through injection of hundreds of micro dots underneath the remote layer of your scalp. It’s not a painless procedure but it’s definitely worth it.
4. It Will Not Regrow Your Hair
Scalp micropigmentation is not about regrowing your hair but rather creating an impression of hair that is closely shaved, commonly referred to as a “buzz cut”. It is the perfect solution for anyone who has come to accept that their hair is gone and it will not grow back again. In a city as vibrant as Toronto, you want to always walk with your head held high and this procedure can play a big role in restoring your confidence.
5. How Long Does It Take to Complete the Procedure?
You might require a few sessions before this non-invasive treatment is completed. In the early hours after the treatment, you need to protect your scalp to avoid a situation where minor fading can occur due to air exposure and heat. Also, the most noticeable fade can occur typically within the first month of your tattoo. Fortunately, there are sunscreen lotions that an expert can recommend that you can use to prevent this from happening.
Compared to other hair loss treatments like taking medication that takes ages to show any noticeable results and an even longer healing period, this procedure only needs a few sessions to complete. This treatment does not involve a long healing process as it is a non-invasive procedure.
6. Micropigmentation Is a Safe Procedure
One thing you can be assured of if you undergo this procedure is its result. Compared to the chemical-infused hair solutions out there, this procedure is the safest. The fact that the procedure is non-invasive means that there are no deep incisions into your scalp. This means that the chances of developing infections are drastically reduced. At the same time, hairline tattooing will not leave you requiring post-procedure treatment.
With no need for incisions and no chemicals used, it is fair to say that this non-invasive procedure is one of the safest hair loss solutions. The procedure is almost painless and the risk of infection almost non-existent.
The scalp micropigmentation procedure does not use any chemicals. This means that you don’t have to worry about any side effects during the process. Also, the treatment does not require the need for any incisions, which minimizes your risk of acquiring an infection. Although we use smaller needles to add pigmentation to your skin, you do not have to worry about experiencing discomfort as we apply a local anesthetic to keep your scalp pain-free.
7. No More Need for Comb Overs
As a hair loss sufferer, you will do anything to hide the fact that you are going bald. The worst of them all is the comb-over. If you are trying to fool people with a comb-over, they can see right through it and admit that getting a haircut is a bit too embarrassing which is what ultimately leads people to choose scalp micropigmentation procedure.
You no longer have to waste your hard-earned money on ineffective hair loss treatments. We understand that your goal is to look your best in the shortest time possible and with as little financial damage as possible. SMP costs only a fraction of what you would pay for other hair growth treatment solutions such as a hair transplant.
8. Looks Very Realistic
Even if you are not getting real hair, this procedure eliminates your bald spot while giving you a look that is unbelievably realistic. The way the ink pigments are injected into your scalp, it will take a very close look for anyone to notice that it is not your real hair.
The colour of your hair follicle is matched with that of your natural hair through this procedure. Our technicians make sure that hair tattoo is done following the natural direction of your hair growth for more realistic results.
9. It Makes You Look Younger
The perception that a balding man looks much older than he actually is is enough to leave you worrying when you realize that you are balding. Scalp micropigmentation not only gives you the appearance of full hair, it also leaves you feeling younger and confident.
10. Little Maintenance
Since no real hair is implanted in your skin, there is no need for you to invest in expensive hair products to maintain and promote their growth. You also don’t have to worry about the extra time you need each morning styling your hair. All you need is to wash the pigmented areas, use a bit of hair wax if you want to add some shine and you are ready to go.
