Going Bald? Think Ink!

Can pigment do for guys what Rogaine can't?

From the now-I've-seen-everything department. HIS Hair Clinic is touting Scalp Micro-Pigmentation (SMP) as the lastest weapon in the war against baldness. SMP is said to simulate the natural look of cropped hair (replicates real shaven hair follicles on the scalp), and effectively camouflages and strengthens thinning hair and pattern baldness, and even alopecia and hair transplant scars.  SMP was developed as both a cosmetic procedure for men suffering with all types of hair loss, and as a medical procedure to help conceal scars, burns and birthmarks, as well as the full spectrum of alopecia strains.

“Contrary to societal belief, most men who suffer from male pattern baldness are extremely unhappy with their situation and would do anything to change it,” said Matthew Iulo, VP-sales & marketing, HIS Hair Clinic, an internationally recognized hair loss treatment clinic, with prominent locations around the world. “Hair loss affects every aspect of the hair loss sufferer's life. It affects interpersonal relationships as well as the professional lives of those suffering. It is not uncommon for men to change their career paths because of their hair loss.”


During a SMP procedure, a blend of specialist pigments are deposited into the dermal layer of the skin on the scalp. Using a highly sophisticated combination of angles, penetration depths, deposit sizes and pigment shades, these deposits create an extremely realistic illusion of real shaven hair on the scalp.  “The SMP is a truly viable alternative to traditional hair transplant surgery, hair systems, pills, potions and cover-ups.  It the ultimate modern solution for hair loss,” said Iulo.



According to the American Hair Loss Association, Androgenetic Alopecia or common male pattern baldness (MPB) accounts for more than 95% of hair loss in men. By the age of thirty-five two-thirds of American men will experience some degree of appreciable hair loss, and by the age of 50 approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair.
