Men are sporting a variety of looks and lengths in hair, from the retro crew cut to the androgynous hair trend of 2014, aka the "Man Bun."
But, the latest men's hairstyle trend is known as a power cut, which is a clean shaven look.
Unfortunately, men suffering from hair loss or who are already bald may feel limited with their styling options. The type of hair loss comes in many varieties, ranging from a slightly receding hairline to complete baldness. The causes are multiple and most often genetic.
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 35, 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.
What is Scalp Micro-Pigmentation?
Scalp Micro-Pigmentation (SMP) is a specialized hair loss treatment that simulates 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, and the full spectrum of alopecia strains.
Graig Lauricella, Clinician, joins Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss SMP treatments and if tattoos could help with male baldness issues.
