Pamela’s Case Study

Pamela suffers from a condition which is common among African America women, called traction alopecia. It is caused by damage to the dermal papilla and hair follicle by tension and pulling over a long period, from tight braids, and “cornrows” that lead to high tension, pulling and breakage of hair. The hair does not grow back once this type of damage occurs.

After having SMP, Pamela no longer feels the need to hide the sides of her hair, she feels less self-conscious and more relaxed and confident.

Traction alopecia is most common in African-American women and men who braid their hair too tightly, but is also seen in other cultures whose traditional hair styles also pull or damage the hair.

Traction alopecia is reversible if caught early (and hairstyles changed), but may lead to permanent hair loss if the damage and strain continues. Hair loss is usually in the front and temporal regions, but of course depends on the hair style. With cornrows, the area most commonly affected is that adjacent to the region that is braided.

There are few options available to women with traction alopecia. Hair transplant surgery is costly and painful, so many women resort to hair wraps and scarves. Now, SMP is a new option available to these women. In a single pain-free day, the appearance of thinning areas can be masked and blended with the rest of the hair.

Does your type of hair loss make you a possible candidate for SMP?

"I was hesitant at first when i heard about micro scalp pigmentation, but then when i saw the before and after photos on Good look Ink, specifically for scar correction, I couldn't tell it was ink! it looked very natural and after all, if no one can tell, why hesitate, you want to look your best, without people knowing, right? so this was a win-win in my book. and the staff are just absolutely GREAT and very professional. should have done it years ago."

"I did my SMP at Good look Ink today and the result exceeded my expectation. The technician understood how my hair design should look and took her time to achieve the desired design. I would recommend Googlook In to anyone considering SMP."

"Okay here goes,,,,I am 46 & have been through it all....transplants, hair piece, Rogaine, etc. and I wish this that this process was available much earlier. I had made the mistake of using a cosmetic tattooist to save some money & quickly realized that it was a poor decision that required laser removal. I am extremely happy with the initial results as well as the overall treatment that I received."
