Hair Loss Treatments and Pain

Posted by Mary Shoufield on

Hair treatments can be painful. The pain threshold depends on the type of treatment being administered.

Hair Styling

Hair styling process is typically painless. But it may become painful or uncomfortable if excessive tension is applied during the process.

The same applies to perming that involves the use of chemicals. This may cause mild tingling or discomfort on the scalp.

Surgical Hair Restoration

Hair transplants involve using local anesthesia to numb the scalp. Otherwise, the invasive procedure could be extremely pain and uncomfortable. Besides, the area could still be sore for a few days after the procedure. Recovery from surgical procedures takes time.

Some of the post-operative symptoms include soreness, tightness, or a feeling of pressure around the donor and recipient areas. The patient may need over-the-counter medications for pain relief, which may subside after a few days.

Although advancements in hair transplant techniques have contributed to reducing the invasiveness of the procedure, postoperative pain cannot be ruled out.

Scalp Micropigmentation

SMP is a non-invasive procedure where pigments are applied to the scalp to create the appearance of hair follicles. While the procedure is generally well-tolerated, some people may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity while it is under way. The scalp technician can take steps to enhance the comfort of clients during the procedure, depending on their pain threshold.

Pain perception varies from one client to another, depending on anxiety levels, personal pain tolerance, and sensitivity of the scalp. The duration of the session can also impact the level of discomfort. Someone requiring longer treatment sessions may experience increased sensitivity.

After the procedure, there could be some redness, soreness, or mild discomfort on the scalp. But there’s nothing to worry about. It is a natural part of the healing process that subsides naturally.
