Is SMP effective? How does it work? 

Yes, scalp micropigmentation is a safe, effective, and long-lasting hair restoration solution that creates the illusion of a full head of hair and has been proven to work for many individuals. If you are new to hair loss treatments, you might be wondering how scalp micropigmentation works. SMP is essentially a tattoo for your scalp. This pigmentation technique involves using layered dots and different shades of black to mimic the shadow of hairs. The scalp micropigmentation method requires multiple sessions to achieve the desired look. These multiple pigmentation sessions will ensure the most natural looking results. A topical numbing cream is applied before the procedure to ensure minimal discomfort.

Do I qualify for hair tattooing?

Anyone who is suffering from baldness, alopecia, or thinned hair can qualify for hair tattooing. SMP can be used to correct a receding hairline, create an illusion of hair in case of balding, or provide a fuller look for people with thinner hair. However, keep in mind that if you are suffering from scalp acne or other scalp problems you should avoid getting a hair tattoo until the breakout fades. Also, if your skin is prone to keloids, you might not be a good candidate for scalp micropigmentation.

To decide on whether hair tattooing is the right choice for you, take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of the SMP treatment.


Hair tattoo advantages

Various advantages of the hair tattoo procedure include gettin quick results, affordability, the illusion of high hair density, and the ability to create a look of a full head of hair.

SMP treatment can give you the appearance of a full head of short hair look. Since there are no limitations such as the number of healthy hair follicles, even completely bald people can enjoy the look of a stylish buzz cut.

If you are only suffering from thinned hair and don’t want to get a hair transplant, you can achieve a fuller look through scalp micropigmentation.


Hair tattoo disadvantages

Hair tattoo procedure is not a permanent solution like hair transplant. Because the hair tattoo procedure is completed over multiple sessions, it can be time consuming as well. You may need to pay regular visits to your practitioner to get the look you want.

Even though it offers a great alternative to other hair loss solutions, SMP treatment does not actually promote any hair growth.

Hair tattoo can only provide a short hair appearance, that’s why it’s not suitable for people who want to achieve long hair look.

Is a hair tattoo permanent?

As with any tattoo, a hair tattoo provides long-lasting results but it will naturally fade over time. This is why even though scalp micropigmentation is a long-lasting solution, but it is not permanent. Scalp Micropigmentation lasts an average of 4-10 years.

Does Scalp Micropigmentation hurt?

Not really, our medical team applies a local anesthetic to numb the scalp before performing scalp micropigmentation, which helps minimize any pain or discomfort during the procedure. Scalp micropigmentation involves using small needles to deposit pigment into the scalp, which can cause very little discomfort, but most patients find the procedure to be easily tolerable and the benefits outweigh the minimal discomfort.

How long does the hair tattooing procedure take?

Each hair tattooing session can take 3-5 hours because it requires the utmost attention to detail for creating as natural results as possible. The length of the procedure varies depending on the size of the treatment area.

Does hair grow over tattoos?
