What is Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP)

Scalp micropigmentation is a non-invasive, tattoo-like procedure that is performed in strictly controlled medical environment and by specially trained and experienced practitioners. The purpose of this procedure is hiding signs of hair loss. Namely, scalp micropigmentation is a tattooing procedure after which the receding hairline looks fuller, by mimicking the natural hair follicles.

Since hair loss is becoming a global problem that affects mostly men of all ages (including young men in their early 20s), countless hair loss solution products have emerged on the market. However, not a single product has been shown to provide long-lasting effects. Most of them either treat or hide the problem for very short span of time or do not solve the problem at all. On the other side, with scalp micropigmentation procedure, results last a lifetime, which is probably the main reason why a growing number of both men and women, decide to take advantage of the benefits of this relatively new trend.

How Does a Scalp Micropigmentation Treatment Look Like?

To illustrate, let’s say that you have a receding hair line or bald spots on your head (since you are reading this, you probably do have such a problem). So, let’s start from the beginning.

The first step of a scalp micropigmentation is finding a reputable clinic which specializes in providing this type of services. Once you find the scalp micropigmentation clinic you can trust, the next step is scheduling a consultation visit with a professional practitioner. In a conversation with the practitioner, you ought to explain him/her your problem and the final appearance you want to achieve with this procedure. The practitioner, on the other hand will recommend you the best solution tailored around your individual needs.

Once you and your practitioner determine the proper pigment and pattern to be tattooed, next is the scalp micropigmentation procedure, in other words, the tattooing of your hairline. With a special needle (with the size that best suits your skin type and tattooing pattern) the cosmetic tattoo practitioner will inject a natural pigment (with colour shade that best matches the natural colour of your hair and skin) into the upper layer of the skin on your head, with previously determined “follicle” density.

What To Expect From Scalp Micropigmentation?

The results of scalp micropigmentation are visible immediately after the first treatment. At the beginning you are likely to experience a little redness on your scalp. The end-result of scalp micropigmentation is a natural-looking scalp with the feel of “freshly-shaved” head that will make you look and feel younger and more confident as well.
