We live in a world where fortunately, more often than not, there is a solution to every problem. If you are not happy with the size of your glutes, the shape of your teeth, the gap between your thighs, all that, there is cosmetic surgery among other things. We have also witnessed men spot artificial beards and even hairpieces. Hair loss is a serious condition that affects both men and women. In our previous article, we covered Alopecia in women, today we speak to Christel-Diego Tshibangu from The Bomb Beauty about treating bald spots in men.
Who is Chris?
Christel-Diego Tshibangu also known as BigChris is a Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) artist and the co-owner of The Bomb Beauty. I became the co-founder of the Bomb Beauty when we converted an existing company known as Exquisite hair by Zandi from a hair salon to an aesthetic parlor after undertaking several cosmetology trainings. The Bomb Beauty is a place where clients opinions are more valid to us then the beautiful art that will be executed The positive spirit helps us sell a beautiful experience to our client even though it’s hard to satisfy everyone but we keep positive to our utmost for the highest word of mouth.
What is Scalp Micro Pigmentation and how different is it from a tattoo?
SMP technicians undergo professional training and their focus is to create an illusion of a full head of hair. SMP Is Not A Tattoo as some would like to believe. We use a specific type of equipment and ink and is expressly created to not discolor like a regular tattoo ink. It also doesn’t go as far into the skin as a regular tattoo and the SMP pigment expands differently in the skin.
It has everything to do with restoration! Being bald can affect one’s confidence and it not only brings backs smiles it revives one’s youthfulness. I replicate hair follicles by adding density recreating hairline even covering of scars for burnt scalp in the most considered natural manner.
How safe is it and how long does it last?
It’s the safest process in the hand of a good technician against baldness as it’s known to be non-surgical but cosmetic treatment. We work on the scalp and there is no blood drawn during the procedure unlike hair transplant. It’s an expensive treatment but at the same time not an expensive treatment considering its permanent results. The first session is the elimination of baldness. We have the second and third sessions and depending on scalp recovery we are looking at 6 to 8 years of having a permanent hairline.
We import the best machines and pigments that don’t cause discoloration and not forgetting the best size needles to drop a dote of pigment with a resemblance of hair follicle and that takes professionalism, passion and mental focus.
The procedure can take 3 to 4 hours of replicating over 10 0000 hair follicles depending on the size of the scalp and scalps are charged based on the patches. Multiple sessions can be caused by the condition of a person’s scalp
For men, it restores the natural hairline in the case of moderate to complete baldness in men. It conceals varying forms of alopecia and diffuse thinning.
Effectively reduces the visual impact scarring, burns or blemishes can have on the scalp and also covers scars on scalp that might have been caused by accident or operation.
For women, while the treatment was created initially for bald heads, scalp micro pigmentation can accommodate females with hair loss issues. The way it works is that it conceals thinning hair by making it look fuller.
Scalp Micro Pigmentation is well worth the effort. If you are a person who enjoys being active and doesn’t want the hassle of expensive, messy treatments or invasive surgeries, scalp micro pigmentation might be the solution you’ve been waiting for.
