10 Benefits of Scalp Micropigmentation as a Hair Loss Treatment

10 Benefits of Scalp Micropigmentation as a Hair Loss Treatment

When men begin to lose their hair, it can affect not only how they see themselves, but how they feel about themselves as well. Their confidence and self-esteem can be lost and they may not feel as attractive as they once did. Though there are many types of hair loss treatments available, not all of them work, leaving men suffering hair loss with few options. That’s why scalp micropigmentation is the best course of action for those in this position, because of the numerous benefits this procedure can offer to those suffering from hair loss.

1. No False Claims

There are dozens of products on the market that claim they will re-grow hair, but most of them have no effect at all. They are purchased and used because some people will believe anything in the hopes of a cure for their baldness. Micropigmentation is different, because it is not for hair growth, nor does it claim to be.

2. Affordable

Because scalp micropigmentation is a permanent solution to hair loss, there is no need to waste hard-earned money on ineffective tonics or shampoos. It is also only a fraction of the cost when compared to hair transplants. There isn’t even any need for post-procedural medications or care products, which means more money kept in the pocket, where it belongs.

3. Safe

The treatment does not use any chemicals, which means no side effects. It also doesn’t require any incisions, so there is little risk of infection. There is also no need to fear the needle that is used to add the pigmentation to the skin, because a local anesthetic is used, keeping it pain-free.

4. Fast Procedure

This simple procedure, which is basically hair tattooing, is finished in only a couple of sessions. This means only a few hours must be spent to achieve a perfect shaved-head look. And even after the first session, the results are quite realistic.

5. Fast Healing

Because of the non-invasive procedure of micropigmentation, healing time is limited to only a few days. In fact, most people who choose this procedure are back to work within two days. There are no dressings to change, or stitches to be concerned with. All that is needed is thorough cleaning in the following weeks.

6. Little Maintenance

Because there is no real hair, there is no need for expensive hair products, nor is there extra time wasted on styling. Simply wash the pigmented area, and if it is desired, add a bit of hair wax to add a bit of shine, and head out the door for a night out with friends, or a special lady.

7. Look Younger

There can be the perception that balding men are automatically old. This does nothing to boost a man’s confidence if he is younger, because looking old can actually make a person feel old. Because the scalp micropigmentation gives men back their hair, and also creates that shaved-head look that is worn by even the biggest movie stars, men can reacquaint themselves with their younger self.

8. Looks Realistic

The purpose of this procedure is to give men back their hair, even if it is not actual hair. That is why the pigments are matched to both existing hair color, as well as skin tone, for the most realistic look achievable. Even what direction the natural hair growth would have taken is considered, to be sure of a genuine look.

9. Long Lasting

Because a scalp micropigmentation will last for years, there will never again be a shortage of confidence to match the shortage of hair. The pigmentation will never fall out, and it can be updated to match changing styles, or even to add a new color.

10. Hides Imperfections

For those with scars from past injuries, or even from hair transplant procedures they had endured in the past, the micropigmentation creates a bit of camouflage for these imperfections. It can also help to mask a receding hairline, making hair appear fuller.

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
