While most do not consider aesthetic treatments for balding as a medical hair loss solution, one Florida-based cosmetic artist strongly does.
Aesthetician Viviana Escobar-Burg is the founder of Discreet Cosmetics Studio which specializes in Scalp Micropigmentation or SMP for hair loss. SMP is a method of cosmetic pigmentation that replicates the natural 3D appearance of hair follicles on one’s scalp.
Although not as widely known as other hair loss treatments, micropigmentation has been in use for scalps for a while, gaining popularity among persons suffering from alopecia, thinning hair, male and female pattern baldness, and other forms of hair loss.
At Discreet Cosmetic Studio, SMP treatments are 100% effective and the pigments used are vegan, according to its website. Viviana’s personal goal is to provide compassionate care and cosmetic solutions to allow her clients to enhance and regain their self-confidence. She considers that aesthetic treatments such as scalp micropigmentation should be considered as a medical hair loss solution just like hair transplants.
“Hair loss causes a lot of stress, and more stress causes more hair loss,” Viviana explained. “SMP treats different types of hair loss such as alopecia areata, hormonal imbalance, stress, thyroid disease, scalp infections, medications, male and female pattern baldness. It should not only be labeled as a beauty treatment.”
With the use of a wireless tattoo device, SMP is a process that uses tiny, layered dots in different hues of given hair color to replicate the look of shadows or shaved skin on one’s scalp. This style, often referred to as pointillism, is done to create natural-looking depth and definition. A skilled practitioner could work to ensure the dots look like natural hair follicles and produce an effect that blends in seamlessly with one’s complexion.
And skilled Viviana certainly seems to be. A licensed and insured cosmetic tattoo artist in Florida, her Discreet Cosmetics Studio has a growing following thanks to her very satisfied clients. “This was one of the best decisions I have made,” wrote customer Deepak Raja in a review. “People have remarked that I look younger now and I think they’re right! Thank you for that, Viviana!”
Aside from SMP, Discreet Cosmetics Studio offers several other treatments, the most popular of which are Corrective Skin Camouflage, a form of paramedical cosmetic permanent tattooing to hide or blend scars and stretchmarks, and Microchanneling, a procedure designed to stimulate the body’s natural ability to generate building blocks of healthy skin to facilitate thicker and younger looking skin with minimal downtime.
