Scalp micropigmentation is a procedure which allows for tiny, permanent points to be made along the scalp. These points resemble normal hair growth in areas where a man might no longer grow hair. Many men have contemplated the idea of undergoing a scalp micropigmentation procedure, but feel unsure what associated benefits make it worthwhile. Below, we’ve listed out the primary benefits.

1: Scalp Micropigmentation Looks Realistic

Scalp Micropigmentation can simulate hair growth in areas where hair no longer grows, and the results are realistic. It also makes the scalp look fuller in areas where there is thinning hair. This is accomplished over several different sittings, with tiny points created closer and closer together over each sitting.

2: Scalp Micropigmentation Allows Men to Feel Natural

Unlike other methods of hiding or fixing hair loss, you can be natural about what you do with your hair. There is no risk of the hair falling off or out, or washing off. Men can exercise, swim, sleep, and do anything else they’d normally do without fear of the hair disappearing and revealing the fact that they suffer from hair loss issues.

3: Scalp Micropigmentation Boosts Confidence

When men feel better about the way they look, they are able to be more confident. This confidence can go far past feeling good about the way a man looks and transfer into the rest of his life. He might feel more confident about an upcoming job promotion, or about asking out a woman he’s had his eye on for some time. This can create a significantly better quality of life than when the man was worried or felt down about his hair issues.

4: Scalp Micropigmentation May Boost Mental Health

When a man feels self-conscious about his appearance, it is possible that he will start suffering from depression or anxiety. This is because these two mental issues stem from ongoing stress. Once the issue is fixed with scalp micropigmentation, men may experience a boost in happiness that helps dispel any associated depression or anxiety they may have previously suffered.

5: Scalp Micropigmentation May Allow Men to be More Active

It’s hard to be active when worrying about whether a toupee will fall off or hair fillers will wash away. When a permanent solution like Scalp Micropigmentation is found, it might allow men to be more active. They can, for example, go swimming without fear or undergo activity that will cause them to sweat. Increased activity is great for both physical and  mental health. The average adult should be endeavoring to get at least half an hour of moderate activity each day to maintain cardiovascular health and a healthy weight.


The benefits listed above are just the five most prominent a man can receive when he undergoes Scalp Micropigmentation. The benefits listed above are not all-inclusive. There may be more benefits, based upon a man’s individual circumstances. Remember that results may vary slightly, due to unique situations and extensiveness of hair loss.

Scalp micropigmentation is giving hundreds of balding men the confidence they need to face the world again – without a baseball cap, trucker hat, or beanie within their constant reach. The cosmetic hair loss solution began in England and has since made its way to the states, where it has taken the market by storm.

What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

This procedure is a non-invasive treatment option for people who suffer from a variety of hair loss issues. This could include full balding, thinning hair, or a receding hairline. The procedure can be performed on either gender, but professionals state that around eighty percent of patients are men.

The reason men make up the vast number of patients is thanks largely to the fact that two-thirds (or more) of men will suffer from hair loss of some degree by the time they reach age 35, and significantly thinner hair by the age of fifty. Women, on the other hand, do not tend to see balding or thinning hair until they are much more advanced in age.

How Does It Work?

Scalp micropigmentation works by using a special pigment which is injected via a permanent makeup machine which has been equipped with a microneedle. This machine then lightly penetrates the skin to create the illusion of tiny follicles on the scalp. This essentially produces the little dots most people associate with stubble or “five o’clock shadow.”

Primary Benefit

The primary benefit to such a procedure is the appearance of hair, which leads to increased confidence. This confidence is a very big deal. According to psychological research studies, elevated levels of confidence are associated with a higher potential of getting those things you want. This might include a date (or follow up night out), a job, promotion, and many more.

Unlike other forms of hair loss remedies, this one is permanent. That means you can go swimming, work out at the gym, or take that early morning run without fear that anything will slip, drip, sweat off, or otherwise embarrass you.

Secondary Benefits

Although the appearance of natural hair growth and confidence are the primary benefits associated with receiving scalp micropigmentation, there are many secondary benefits which should not be overlooked. These include (but may not be limited to):

  • Decreased levels of stress, anxiety, and depression
  • No more embarrassment or insecurities revolving around appearance
  • No more need to carry or wear a head covering everywhere
  • Look younger
  • No more purchasing expensive (and sometimes untrustworthy) hair regrowth serums

Although some people do not mind being bald – and in fact, embrace it as a lifestyle choice once hair begins to thin – the look is not for everyone. If you feel uncomfortable or lack confidence because of thinning hair or a bald head, it may be worth looking into the procedure. It comes with limited risk at a moderate cost – especially in comparison to other hair loss treatment methods.

Hair loss is a significant concern for both men and women, and while there are numerous options out there to treat many different kinds of hair loss, very few permanent solutions exist to resolve cosmetic issues caused by disease, injury, or hair restoration surgery. The team at Vintage Lashes located in Naples, FL is pleased to provide scalp pigmentation treatments, which create the illusion of real hair follicles and help hide these issues once and for all.

Who Should Consider Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp micropigmentation is a procedure that is designed to help create the illusion of real hair follicles. Though it is not ideal for creating the illusion of longer hair, it is ideal for individuals who have deformities or cosmetic issues stemming from dermatologic issues, past injuries, or even scars from hair restoration surgeries. It can still work for long hair by camouflaging the area that is bald or thin. It is essentially a cosmetic tattooing procedure that offers results that are both permanent and realistic. The vast majority of patients who undergo this treatment through Vintage Lashes are highly satisfied with the results.

Why Choose Vintage Lashes in Naples

The team at Vintage Lashes approaches the task of scalp micropigmentation differently in order to provide the best, longest-lasting, and most realistic results. The team starts with ensuring and improving the condition of the scalp via microneedling, which makes the scalp more pliable and soft. Then, the team works very hard to create pigments that exactly match each client’s natural hair color and skin tone. These pigments, unlike others, were specially developed to last for many 7-10 years without fading or changing color. The team also uses a very special tool designed to minimize human error to inject the pigment into the skin.

What to Expect

Before the procedure, your scalp will be prepped with a microneedling treatment, and the staff will put some of the pigmented ink on your scalp afterward to help reduce inflammatory reactions. Then, about a week later, the first scalp micropigmentation treatment occurs. The first session also helps reduce inflammatory reaction and will not produce much of an aesthetic change. In sessions one week apart, and typically in three sessions, the entire process will be competed. Touch-up sessions may be required for some patients. You should expect very minimal pain during the procedure along with a bit of redness and discomfort for a few hours after each treatment.
