TYPES OF SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION PROCEDURES
Clients have several SMP procedures to choose from, each of which addresses their specific needs. The following procedures are some of the treatment options available for individuals suffering from varrying degress of hair loss.
SOFT HAIRLINE AND WIDOWED PEAK
This procedure is recomended for individuals seeking to have their existing hairline brought forward which serves to increase the density of the hair. Our world leading scalp micropigmentation practitioners use industry leading equipment and propriatary techniques to appropriately layer SMP impressions thereby creating a natural hair line.
ADDING VOLUME TO THINNING HAIR
This particular procedure has been a popular choice among men, women and young adults as it addresses a common issue – thinning hair. Our practitioners begin by treating the front hairline by adding density to create a full and natural look. They will then work their way across the scalp ensuring that all areas affected by thinning are addressed approrpiately. This procedure is an excellent option for individuals who’ve undergone hair transplant procedures before and have failed to achieve their desired appearance and volume.
THE EDGE UP
Th ‘Edge Up’ procedure is perfect for individuals suffering from thinning, balding, or other hair loss problems. Our practitioners begin with a conservative approach on the first session, they would then re-create the hairline including the temple area. We ensure that we match both the color and volume of impressions to the clients in order to create a look at that is indistinguishable from the clients original hair. Depending on your needs, you can also opt for a different Edge Up styling, some of which are also popular amongst celebrities as it provides them with a permanent solution to their hair loss problems.At Gerow Hair Ink, we have the best, most advanced and most cost-effective hair restoration treatments and procedures available for you.
Unfortunately, not all scalp micropigmentation practitioners and clinics are not created equally, as such, if you find your self a victim of a less than satisfactory scalp micropigmentation procedure, you may need to undergo smp reparation. What most of these less practiced practitioners/clinics fail to realize is that it hundreds of hours to become skilled and a true specialist in this field. At Gerow Hair Ink, our practitioners are pioners in the industry with nearly ten years of experience and over 6500 satisfied clients.

WHAT ARE SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION REPARATIONS?
Since scalp micropigmentation is only as good as the practitioner performing the procedure, we highly recommended that you do your research, search for references and ask if they are happy with their treatment. More often than not, we have individuals come to our office seeking help as they went to a provider for scalp micropigmentation and received less than satisfactory results. When we provide consultations we often try to see if we can work around the previous providers mistakes so as to not have to send the client to have it removed via laser as it is a very painful experience.
Now, there could be many reasons as to why your treatment was not what you expected, for instance, the chosen pigment may be been incorrect. At Gerow Hair Ink, we use our own proprietary all-organic pigment in our procedures. It works so well that it is currently being used by hundreds of other SMP practitioners around the world. Additionally, the spacing and depth of the impressions could have been incorrect, often resulting in ‘blotching’ or pooling of pigment.
It could be that the chosen pigment used was incorrect. Possibly it was applied with incorrect spacing or at an incorrect depth. Whatever the case, what was supposed to be natural looking camouflage for hair loss has now become a walking advertisement for faulty workmanship.
WHY USE SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION FOR SMP REPARATIONS?
In most cases, our industry leading practitioners will attempt to work around the previous providers procedure however, in the case where that can not be done, we will recommend laser removal. While laser removal may be painful it will allow our practitioners to provide you with the very best scalp micropigmentation treatment. Our practitioners have helped over 6500 individuals with their various hair loss problems, and so if you are looking for a provider thats trusted, proven and professional to assist you with your scalp micropigmentation reparation, look no further.
Scalp micropigmenation (SMP) touch-ups and reparations are something we hope that you never need. However, there are SMP practitioners out there that will not quite measure up to your expectations. If you have received SMP treatment that hasn’t stood the test of time, you may be in need of a touch-up treatment or reparation.
WHAT ARE SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION TOUCH-UPS?
Since scalp micropigmentation is only as good as the practitioner performing the procedure, we highly recommended that you do your research, search for references and ask if they are happy with their treatment.

Additionally, the spacing and depth of the impressions could have been incorrect, often resulting in ‘blotching’ or pooling of pigment.
Even when the procedure is done correctly, an individual may choose to change their hair color or, if they have not followed the specific care instructions, they may have experienced fading. And on rare occasion, some individuals have been known to reject the ink because the body sees it as a foreign body to be dealt with and eliminated. If this happens, you may need to get a quick touch-up.
Even in the case of ink rejection, our technicians know exactly what to do and what levels of ink to use. We have caring, professional and highly skilled staff that is well versed regarding all the applications of smp but also touch-ups and reparations as well.
WHAT IS MALE PATTERN BALDNESS?
More commonly referred to as androgenetic alopecia, male pattern baldness occurs in nearly every male member of society eventually – just to varying degrees. Some hair loss will not be noticeable whereas, other men will lose most if not all of their hair. This is a progressive hereditary condition that is passed down from generation to generation in which the hair line gradually recedes. Additionally, testosterone has a lot to do with whether or not a man will go bald and, again, it can be to varying degrees and progress through or stop at various stages. Oddly enough, however, the effect of changing testosterone levels in the body (as it applies to hair loss) only affects the hair on your head.Thinning usually begins at the hairline and top of the scalp eventually leading to the thinning of hair at the crown as well. This results in a easily distinguishable ‘horseshoe’ pattern in men experiencing male pattern baldness.
WHY USE SCALP MICRO-PIGMENTATION TO TREAT MALE PATTERN BALDNESS?
Scalp micropigmentation can camouflage the effects of male pattern baldness because of the manner in which it is applied; even if your hair begins to thin even more than it has thus far scalp micropigmentation can cover your entire scalp, essentially ‘future’ proofing against anticipated hair loss.
Hair loss or thinning of hair is not unique only to men, on the contrary, it also is common amongst women as well. Our practitioners are experts when it comes to creating a subtle natural look that addresses their specific needs. Scalp Micropigmentation is ideal for women suffering from hair thinning across the top of their scalp. Our practitioners have successfully treated dozens of women suffering from Alopecia and post-surgery scars by utilizing our camouflage technique in order to create by smooth transition between the hairline and scalp.
PROCEDURE FOR LONG HAIR
Scalp micropigmentation is also ideal for women with long hair. Whether you’ve suffered from massive hair loss due to surgery, menopause/stress, hereditary issues and/or severe illness, this procedure will provide you with outstanding results.
We pride ourselves in providing each and every client a unique and custom-tailored consultation process. Before we begin treatment we match your natural or desired hair color in order to create a indistinguishable three dimensional appearance, we then begin by layering ink impressions in the areas affected with baldness. The number of sessions a client would need varies but generally, a client would require two-three sessions.
WHAT IS ALOPECIA?
There are many forms of Alopecia, with each resulting in hair loss in the afflicted areas. Alopecia areata is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune ystem mistakenly attacks hair follicles, which is where hair growth begins. The damage to the follicle is usually not permanent. Experts do not know why the immune system attacks the follicles. Alopecia areata is most common in people younger than 20, but children and adults of any age may be affected. Women and men are affected equally.
WHY USE SCALP MICRO-PIGMENTATION TO TREAT ALOPECIA?
At Gerow Hair Ink, we know how rewarding it can be to help individuals suffering from the various forms of Alopecia. Using scalp micropigmentation, we can achieve results that completely camouflage areas affected by alopecia.This treatment serves two purposes, the first is that the procedure compeltely camouflages existing syymtoms of of hair loss and secondly, the beneficial effect will still persist even if the patches shift position or change in size or shape. In order to ensure ideal results up to four treatments may be necessary.
MAIN TYPES OF ALOPECIA
Alopecia Areata (AA) — Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition that results in patchy hair loss. It can appear as a single bald patch or in some cases, extensive patchy hair loss.
Alopecia Totalis (AT) — Alopecia totalis is a more advanced form of alopecia areata in that individuals afflicted with it suffer complete loss of all hair on their scalp.
Alopecia Universalis (AU) — Alopecia universalis is the most advanced form of alopecia areata which results in complete loss of all hair on the body, this includes eyelashes and eyebrows.
Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA) — Androgenetic alopecia is more commonly referred to as male pattern baldness. It is characterized by the thinning of hair in both men and women. It is understood to be a hereditary form of hair loss and is the most common type of progressive hair loss.
Alopecia Barbae (AB) — Alopecia barbae is alopecia areata that is localised to the beard area and can be characterized by a single bald patch or more extensive hair loss across the beard area.
Traction Alopecia — Traction alopecia is usually caused by excessive pulling or tension of hair as a result of certain hair styles. It is more often seen in women, particularly those of East-Indian and Afro-Carribbean origin. The amount of hair loss depends on how the hair is being pulled; prolonged treatment of hair in this manner can lead to the stop of new hair follicles developing and lead to permanent hair loss.
Alopecia Telogen Effluvium — This form of alopecia where more than normal amounts of hair fall out. With this type of condition, there is a general ‘thinning’ of hair and unlike some other scalp conditions, it is temporary and the hair that was lost usually recovers. Though no official cure has been discovered, there are treatments available. One of those treatments is scalp micro-pigmentation or SMP. In this procedure, your entire scalp is treated – even areas where hair still exists. This is done to assure a uniform look in case existing hair falls out in the future.
SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION FOR MEN WITH LONG HAIR
Though the majority of men favor shorter hairstyles, there are a lot of men that prefer having a man-bun, ponytail, or just letting their hair grow. While having longer hair may act as a sort of camouflage for balding areas, there are times where more must be done. Fortunately scalp micropigmentation can help hide hair loss by filling in areas where hair has thinned out in order to create the appearance of a full head of hair.
OPTIONS FOR MEN RECEIVING SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION ARE AS FOLLOWS
The Edge Up – this is for individuals suffering from balding or thinning hair. The first session is conservative with the temple areas and hairline being built up in follow-up sessions.
Add Volume to Thinning Hair – this doesn’t solely apply to men because both women and children have benefited from it equally. Areas that are affected by hair loss or baldness are filled in during scalp micropigmentation sessions.
Widow’s Peak or Soft Airline – if you simply want your hair to have a fuller appearance and look, lowering your existing hairline with SMP could be just what you need.
SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION FOR WOMEN WITH LONG HAIR
At Gerow Hair Ink we fully understand that hair loss/thinning is not unique to men, on the contrary it is quite common in women and that is why we offer world-class procedures using our proprietary techniques that match your real hair follicles. Using near identical follicle impressions designed specifically for you we can effectively camouflage the fact that your hair is thinning or receding. The first steps is to clearly identify areas of balding/thinning in order to determine the best way to create a smooth transition between your hair and the ink impressions. Eventually we will layer more impressions in order to create a three-dimensional look by not only matching your desired or natural hair color but by also shading the area if needed. In order to produce results that are world class we ensure that each and every procedure is specifically designed and customised for each individual.
THINNING HAIR, WHAT IS IT?
For many, the thought of hair loss or thinning hair is unimaginable – until it happens to them. Unfortunately, thinning hair is experienced by up to 38% of women and nearly 60% of males (this number varies with ethnicity) will experience male pattern baldness. But how do you know if you are suffering from hair thinning?
The chances of you going to bed with a full head of hair and waking up bald are slim to none. Suffering from thinning hair is a gradual process that most people fail to pick up on until it has progressed to a later stage.
Here are some things to look out for:
- Seeing more scalp than you used when you pull hair back
- Your ponytail feels thinner
- When you part your hair the part appears to be widening
- Seeing more hair on your hair brush, pillowcase, or flowing down the drain
Though men are seldom proud of thinning hair, this condition can make women feel isolated and embarrassed. Sadly, it is not at all uncommon in either sex.
WHY USE SCALP MICRO-PIGMENTATION TO TREAT THINNING HAIR?
For both men and women, thinning hair can be caused by any number of factors including but not limited to an autoimmune condition, hormonal abnormalities, anemia, genetics, stress and many more.

WHAT IS SCAR CAMOUFLAGE?
Sadly, individuals with receding hairlines or those who are already bald have occasionally resorted to less than ideal methods of hair transplantation. The old, outdated methods have left many of those people with scars. The traditional techniques of hair restoration sometimes left historic plug scars, cobblestone scars, follicular unit extraction scars, scalp reduction scars, FUT strip scars… the list goes on.

WHAT ARE HAIR TRANSPLANT SCARS?
There are many treatment options for hair loss, one of the more popular options are hair transplants. While hair transplants may serve to stave off hair loss it is not a permanent solution and more often than not hair that has been transplanted begin to thin and fall out within the first three to five years. In addition to it’s non-permanent nature, it also results in the scarring of the donor area which can either be in the form of a long strip or dozens of pin-sized impressions on the back of the scalp.
