Scalp Micropigmentation Introduction to SMP®
Spectacular help for those experiencing receding hairline or balding
For anyone looking for a long-term solution to hair loss without any surgery or scars, Scalp Micropigmentation offers a great new solution for this.
Scalp micropigmentation is a non-invasive treatment that deposits pigment into the scalp using detailed micro-needles. It involves a special method of injecting pigment into the dermal layer of the skin on the scalp, which replicates hair follicles and can also be referred to as cosmetic head tattoo.
A scalp micropigmentation procedure is a highly advanced method of cosmetic pigmentation and is much more cost effective than normal hair transplant procedures. Unlike the classic tattoo, permanent ink is not used during cosmetic head tattoo treatments.
How Scalp Micropigmentation is Done
Scalp micropigmentation or cosmetic pigmentation is a highly-technical and specialized process that can only be carried out by trained technicians. During these treatments, microneedles are used to layer pigment dots on the scalp of your head. These tiny dots of pigment on the scalp simply create the illusion of having a full head of shaved hair. This process resembles getting a tattoo which is why it is often referred to as a cosmetic head tattoo.
What to do before Treatment
Before undergoing this procedure, it is important to first consult with a well trained and qualified practitioner who does the treatment. He or she will discuss your requirements, including the shape of your hairline, the density as well as its positioning, and shade of your pigmentation.
Just like a tattoo on the skin, changing it requires the use of the laser removal process.
- Fading can occur due to prolonged exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. However, visiting an SMP clinic more often for touch-ups can treat this.
- For men, they need to keep their hair very short to enable them to take full advantage of the cosmetic head tattoo.
Apart from treating general balding, hair loss and hairline recession, there are other uses for scalp micropigmentation some are:
- For burn or surgery-related hair loss.
- To conceal blemishes, hair transplant scars, or marks caused by trauma to the skin.
- It can also be used to blend birthmarks into the scalp.
