Let’s talk about a hair loss topic that isn’t talked about nearly enough but needs to be…scalp micropigmentation for women.
Scalp micropigmentation for women helps women who suffer from Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL).
FPHL is a condition where women gradually lose their hair over time. This can be a result of vitamin deficiencies, dieting, or having hereditary issues. Any woman or girl can be affected by hair. This condition is much more common in people who experience the following factors:
- Immune system disorders
The hair loss follows this unique pattern. Hair at the top of the head thins as the hairline recedes away from the face. It then grows dramatically shorter until no new hairs grow.
The Impact of Female Hair Loss
This is a real issue. Think about this:
- 50% of women experience hair loss in their lifetime.
- 2-3% of women are affected by female pattern hair loss by 30
- 10% of women are affected by female pattern hair loss by 50
- 30% of women are affected by female pattern hair loss by 70
- 50% of women start losing their hair by 50 years old
- 43% women wished their hair was fuller and thicker
- 29% of women with hair loss reported two symptoms of depression
- Women with high-stress levels are 11 times more likely to experience hair loss
- 50% of women experience hair loss post menopause
Whether you’re in your 20’s or rocking your 60’s, we’ve got something special for you in this post that will infuse you with renewed hope and expectation if you are a woman dealing with hair loss.
1. Understanding Scalp Micropigmentation for Women
1.1 How SMP Works
Let’s start with the basics. Scalp micropigmentation is not just another hair loss solution; it’s a game-changer. When performed properly, it’s like magic on your scalp, and we’re here to explain how it can help women of all ages who are expiring hair shedding and loss but had no idea that this hair loss solution existed.
If you are not familiar with scalp micropigmentation, the simplest explanation I can give you about it is that scalp micropigmentation is a procedure where microneedles are used to place tiny points of pigment just under the surface of the skin of the scalp. When done properly, it gives the effect of hair follicles growing out of your scalp in the places where you are experiencing baldness and/or thinning. When used on thinning hair, it gives the very realistic impression of your hair being much thicker and denser than it is in reality.
1.2 The Female Hair Loss Journey
Ladies, we understand the emotional rollercoaster that comes with hair loss.
Society treats women much differently than men when it comes to hair loss. Society and (especially American) culture often tell men that they look strong, sexy and bold when they are bald.
However, women rarely, if ever, receive those accolades if they are bald. Fortunately, through scalp micropigmentation for women we can rewrite the narrative and help women who find themselves in a situation where they are suffering from hair loss. We are able to help raise their self-confidence and help them step out with their heads high feeling beautiful and strong.
If you are a woman reading this, it’s essential to acknowledge and know that you’re not alone on this journey.
All of our clients are on their own specific and unique hair loss journeys but the impact emotionally and psychologically can be immensely different for each of them.
At Think Ink Micro-Esthetics, we make it a priority to approach each client with the integrity and honor they deserve because everyone’s hair loss journey is a little different and unique.
2. SMP: A Tailored Approach for Women
2.1 Customizing for Feminine Aesthetics
Picture this: scalp micropigmentation that camouflages your hair loss and gives you a hairline or hair density that complements and enhances your look while naturally and realistically blending with your natural hair and face shape thereby magnifying your natural beauty.
I say that because scalp micropigmentation for women isn’t a one-size-fits-all; it’s tailored for you. Some women are dealing with hair thinning where they have hair around the sides and back of the scalp but the top of their head from the hairline area all the way back to the crown is thinning or shedding. Others may be experiencing hair thinning and loss throughout the entirety of their scalp. Other women may just have thinning in the part area or just on the sides of their scalps. There are also women who experience hair loss in such a way that they have bald patches on various areas of their scalps (alopecia areata).
Whatever form of hair loss you may be dealing with, we will make sure that your scalp micropigmentation is tailored specifically for your hair loss situation and your goals so that you walk out of the door with your head up and shoulders back with the confidence to take on the world.
When you visit us, your scalp micropigmentation artist can make sure that you are given a nice soft, gradient hairline that is appropriately shaped. This is important because male and female hairlines are very differently shaped, so if you happen to be a woman who needs some scalp micropigmentation around the hairline area make certain the scalp micropigmentation artist you choose can deliver on this front because if you have hair the hairline is the frame for your face.
2.2 Confidence Beyond Numbers
Age is just a number, right? Scalp Micropigmentation has helped women aged from their 20’s all the way up into their 60’s. It has no age restrictions!
Sometimes clients were unsure if we could help them because their hair had begun to gray. They were amazed to learn, and see with their own eyes, that we matched and blended our scalp micropigmentation with their existing hair…even though it was gray.
So, rest assured, no matter which end of the age spectrum you may find yourself, we can and will blend your scalp micropigmentation seamlessly with your existing hair color and give you a beautiful realistic and natural-looking result.
3. Scalp Micropigmentation for Women – The Process
3.1 The Consultation Process
Your SMP journey begins with a chat. This can be done via phone but is best done wither in-person or virtually.
Because it is easier for your scalp micropigmentation artist to see your scalp and level of hair loss.
Also, in-person and virtual consultations allow you to feel out and access how comfortable you are with scalp micropigmentation artist on a personal and expertise level.
This is important because you need to know for certain that this scalp micropigmentation artist can actually deliver on their claims to you.
This can be a little challenging to do sometimes when you have nothing more than an email or text chat about some pictures of your scalp that you sent over and they’re just giving you a quote over text or chat.
When you visit us, we make certain during the initial consultation that we discuss your concerns, goals, and create a personalized scalp micropigmentation plan that you are happy with.
It’s like crafting a battleplan for your new look.
3.2 The SMP Treatment
Most clients generally receive 3-5 sessions depending on different factors such as their scalp conditions and the level of pigment retention they experience from the procedure.

5. Choosing the Right SMP Artist
5.1 Qualities of a Top-Notch SMP Artist
Not all scalp micropigmentation artists are created equal. We’ll highlight essential traits and skills to look for in a scalp micropigmentation specialist because expertise matters.
To find the perfect fit for your needs, you need to ask the right questions during your consultation.
Make sure you question your artist closely about their level of education, experience, and expertise.
Make sure they understand exactly what it is you are looking to achieve through the scalp micropigmentation process and what you want your finished look to be.
If you haven’t seen their portfolio, ask to see it.
Let them know you are looking at other artists as well and ask them what makes them special.
Why should you choose them?
6. A Life-Changing Journey
6.1 Emotional Healing through Scalp Micropigmentation
Look, we know that hair loss can take a toll on your emotional well-being. This is especially true if you are a woman.
There have been clients that have had to sit and cry before their procedure because just unpacking the whole thing verbally with someone was so emotionally jarring. Other clients have had their lives negatively affected from social and even employment standpoints because of the impact their hair loss had on their lives.
All of these women found solace and healing through scalp micropigmentation and were able to attack life with a renewed outlook and zeal.
6.2 The Ultimate Confidence Boost
To be honest, scalp micropigmentation isn’t just about looks; it’s an investment in your self-confidence.
Not having to worry about scalp visibility, bald spots, thinning, wearing scarves or wigs, having more freedom in how you style your hair.
These are all things that go beyond looks and are really all about your freedom!
We encourage you to take that leap, explore your options, and remember, you’re worth every cent!
