If you are suffering from traits of baldness then you have obviously heard about scalp micropigmentation. It is a procedure that involves trained professionals to draw hair follicles on your scalp and hide the balding permanently. However, knowing the procedure isn’t enough to have a go at it and one must have a fair idea about scalp micropigmentation cost!
So, this blog looks to give you a cost benefit analysis of scalp micropigmentation and help you decide whether it is an option you would like to consider!
1. For scar treatment only
Scalp scars can often leave a grizzly mark with no hair growth in the region which makes it look kind of awkward. And while no other kind of treatment will be effective in these areas, MCP is the only way out. In the US, such treatments will take anywhere between $1200 and $2250, depending on the area of the scar. Now, one must remember, these prices are indicative and for minor scars only!
2. Hairline and Crown work
Probably the most noticeable problem in young males, hairline and crown work can be easily mended with the implementation of MCP in the scalp. Costs may vary from person to person but anything less than $2300 can be expected. This indicative price is only for people who are still in the 2nd or 3rd stages of hair loss.
3. Standard procedure to alopecia
For men who have surpassed the mid stages of balding and come to the final stages or are suffering from alopecia, the treatment can cost anywhere between $3000 and $6000. Also, in these cases, there will be need for touch up every 5 to 6 years to maintain the look and prevent any fading effect to give things away. MCP is the only kind of treatment or procedure that can cure the damages of alopecia with almost immediate results and no one looking at you will ever know that those aren’t real hair follicles.
These are the indicative costs of anyone looking to go through the procedure. However, when this is compared to other forms of hair treatment, it appears much cheaper.
When talking about hair grafts, one single strand of transplanted hair will cost anywhere between $5 and $8! While this doesn’t seem like much, for a man who has experienced severe hair loss and would have to spend $6000 with MCP, might end up spending $50,000 with hair grafts; a difference not everybody is willing to climb.
Now that you have a fair idea of the costs of scalp MCP, you can make the decision for yourself and chose your treatment!
