What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a semi-permanent cosmetic treatment to improve the appearance of thinning hair or hair loss.
Micro-pigmentation treatment that is essentially a “hair tattoo”. It requires thin, small needles to deposit tiny dots of pigment (color) on the scalp, which gives the appearance of thicker hair. Each dot of ink simulates a hair about to bud and can look natural. The pigment remains for most patients for 2-4 years and fades over time. Scalp micropigmentation does not grow hair or change your natural hair growth. Scalp micropigmentation is a camouflage technique to make it look like you have fuller, thicker hair.
SMP treatment can hide thinning areas on your scalp, as well as birthmarks or scars, and create the illusion of shaved hair or a “buzz cut” on bald people. The procedure is for both men and women. Many women use it to create the appearance of a more narrow part. When patients have dark hair and a lighter scalp, SMP can blend the contrast and dramatically improve the aesthetic of the hair and scalp. Scalp micropigmentation always uses semi-permanent inks.
