It is comforting to use a trusted method to treat androgenic alopecia. There is no longer the need to speculate whether it can truly work. Natural supplements for example, do not enjoy the same approval by the Food and Drug Administration that certain medications do. These may be effective for some people, however they usually only carry a label stating “no approved therapeutic claims”. It is probably better to have an assurance that the time and money spent for a hair loss solution will actually perform, as it should. The use of other established methods are no different. Hair transplant surgery has long been regarded as an effective technique to combat male pattern baldness. The same goes for scalp micropigmentation though it can have applications beyond androgenic alopecia. Clients expect these services to deliver on its promise every single time.


Being able to take advantage of one of these different techniques to treat hair loss does not need to exclude the others. Combining them with each other is very possible. Consulting with a qualified physician before doing so however is highly recommended. It is always better to get professional advice to know how best to maximise a certain product or service. Patients may also be informed about any inherent shortcomings that one method has that can potentially be countered by the other.

The use of hair transplant surgery is more than able to treat male pattern baldness on its own. There is however a time span wherein it may be properly implemented. The initial stages of androgenic alopecia do not yet require this approach. In fact, it might even be regarded as too much, too soon. Of course, using it is in its closing phases would be the opposite. It would then become too little, too late. The middle stages of male pattern baldness are perfect for hair transplant surgery. There are enough bald areas that would require coverage and an ample supply of hair follicles to provide it with. Repositioning them throughout the scalp should create a denser looking head of hair without materially affecting the donor area. Extracting hair follicles from it is possible only as far as its own density does not suffer to the extent of looking like it is undergoing hair loss as well.

One of the more popular methods of hair transplant surgery is the follicular unit extraction method or FUE. It is able to directly extract hair follicles from the donor area and implant them unto the required locations of the scalp. This technique allows small amounts to be harvested because it can be done per unit. It is still advised however to wait until there has been a significant amount of hair to save on the amount of time returning to the clinic. Early use of FUE might also result in having a bald area between the transplanted hair follicles and the patient’s receding hairline. In any case however, this type of surgery can cause scarring from the point of extraction. It can be highly noticeable especially when the client’s hair is worn shorter.

Scalp micropigmentation can be used to conceal FUE scars with relative ease. The combination of these two treatments can surely create a more natural looking outcome. The practitioner simply has to locate the scarring and layer it with pigments. He must be careful however not to do it if they are raised. These can be as noticeable as those without scalp micropigmentation. Using Fraxel laser technology prior to treating it with pigments can be done to flatten its appearance. This is a good example of how different trusted techniques can be used to create the best results for the client.
