Is Scalp Micropigmentation Right For You?

Hair loss, pattern baldness, a thinning scalp or a receding hairline can all have adverse effects on your appearance and self-esteem. Even though there are diverse hair treatment options available in the market, SMP might be the “right one” for you!

Scalp Micropigmentation or SMP is a revolutionary technology for cosmetic pigmentation. Also known as hair tattooing, SMP is a hair treatment that injects pigments or inks into the scalp to create a buzz cut style on a bald head or to add density to thin hair.

It is permanent, inexpensive and completely non-surgical. This means you can get the look you want instantly without going under the knife!

How SMP Works

Once you have signed up for the treatment, the practitioner will call you for a consultation meeting. A trained professional will most probably perform a scalp check-up before the treatment. A patch test may be done on a small area of your scalp to ensure there are no allergic reactions.

Then, the practitioner will choose an ink color by matching your natural hair color to create a realistic illusion of hair. They may pick a shade darker to give a 3D-effect of the hair. The choice of ink will also depend upon your skin tone and required a final look.

The treatment will begin and micro-fine needles of various lengths will be adjusted at different penetration depths and angles. These needles would make impressions without penetrating epidermal tissue of your skin.

The treatment is gentle and soft. Any initial redness will disappear within 24 hours. It is safe, quick and painless.  Usually, the scalp is treated twice for perfect results.

Who Should Choose SMP

Scalp Micropigmentation would be an ideal option for you if you are:

  • Someone who wants to increase the optical density of hair (make it look fuller).
  • Someone who’s looking for the popular Jamie Foxx look.
  • Someone who wants to define or refresh receding hairline.
  • Someone suffering from Alopecia or other diseases that cause permanent hair loss.
  • Someone who wishes to hide scars, burns or birthmarks over the head.
  • Someone not suitable or afraid of a hair transplant treatment.

What to Expect after SMP

After a successfully completed SMP treatment, you can expect permanent results as the ink does not fade.  If you had thin hair, your head would appear denser and filled-in with no bald patches or undesired scalp area.

Your wish to lower your receded hairline or to get a permanent edge-up would be granted.  If you intended to hide scars from your previous head or hair transplant surgeries, you will admire the efficiency with which SMP would camouflage them.
