An estimated six million women suffer the traumatic effects of hair loss every year in Britain.
It is a subject that remains largely taboo, few women are willing to discuss it publicly as they are continually assaulted with images of models with beautiful flowing locks. Suffering in silence many often resort to spending vast amounts of money on commercially marketed treatments that can be largely ineffective.
The effects of hair loss can have a profound effect on a woman’s self-confidence. Robbed of her ‘crowning glory’ the emotional impact can exacerbate the trauma.
Reasons for female hair loss can range from the simple and temporary—a vitamin deficiency through diet, sudden weight loss or over-styling —to the more complex, like an underlying health condition, hormonal imbalance and physical or emotional stress.
For women the extent of female baldness can be measured by the Savin Scale which measures overall thinning as well as the density of the hair. The Savin Scale illustrated shows the common areas of hair loss in women that can be aided with SMP.
Hair Restoration Program
Scalp Micropigmentation offers immediate results and will instantly create the illusion of thicker hair, by camouflaging the affected areas of the scalp or bare patches.
Most importantly, micropigmentation does not interfere with the body’s own ability to regenerate the follicles. Once the individual’s health or circumstances are resolved, natural hair growth can often resume.
Here at Brandwood Clinic our female clients can enjoy the freedom and confidence of no longer having to hide these areas under headwear or intricate styling. Our comfortable and professional surroundings are ideally suited to the discretion required by clients experiencing hair loss issues. We have an ambition to be the UK’s leading provider of SMP for women and are able to offer one of the country’s only female consultants to guide you through the process if required.
