What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp Micropigmentation which is a non surgical solution to hair loss is pigment implanted into the skin to replicate the look of a shaved head of hair. SMP works at mitigating the downsides of thinning and balding, so it's ideal whether you're already completely bald or are losing hair gradually
How it works?
Scalp Micropigmentation is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that uses pointillism techniques to add density to the scalp by creating the illusion of hair follicles. SMP and tattoos are often confused because of their similarity, they both are performed using a handheld machine with a microneedle and they implant pigment underneath the skin’s outer layer.
Does it Hurt?
For some clients, getting scalp pigmentation may feel like no more than a minor annoyance. For others, it can cause moderate discomfort. Like other sensations, pain is relative. On a scale of 1 to 10, pain levels may sit around 1 to 4 on average.
It takes about 4 weeks to heal before we can determine if additional sessions will be required.
The scalp must be healed. This treatment is ideal for both men and women who would like to improve the appearance and fullness of their hairline.
Scalp Micropigmentation treatment typically takes 2-4 hours per session depending on your degree of hair loss. Most clients can expect between 2-4 sessions to complete their treatment depending on the extent of hair loss or scarring. SMP can last years but is meant to fade naturally over time.
What to avoid BEFORE a SMP Appointment?
Do not consume alcohol, caffeine, fish oil, Vitamin E, aspirin and ibuprofen as they cause the blood to thin and will result of more bleeding during the procedure. (Tylenol is okay to take before service.)
