Increased Hair Density

SMP can give the impression that your hair is denser and more voluminous than it actually is. This eliminates the need for temporary solutions like wigs or hats to hide bald patches or thinning hair.

Restore Receding Hairlines

Having a receding hairline can contribute to having a much older appearance. By restoring receding hairlines through SMP, you can look more youthful while evening out other problem areas on your scalp.

Scar Camouflage

When poorly done, hair transplants can lead to visible scarring from donor areas. SMP effectively hides these scars and other imperfections.

Boost In Self-Confidence

People experiencing hair loss or hair-related issues tend to develop feelings of insecurity. Much like one’s face, one’s hair is a visible aspect of one’s appearance. By undergoing an SMP treatment, an individual’s self-confidence can be boosted as they no longer have to hide bald spots or feel as though they will be judged because of their hair.

Does Scalp Micropigmentation Hurt?

A common concern about SMP treatments is if they hurt. Generally speaking, they don’t, as it is a non-surgical procedure. However, this would still depend on the client’s pain tolerance. Most procedures are completed with minimal pain or no pain. However, since needles are used, some level of discomfort may occur. 

It’s also important to note that people who have psoriasis or other skin conditions should first consult their doctors before undergoing SMP. Flare-ups or breakouts can make it more difficult for the pigment to be applied and may even result in scarring. Those who are also prone to developing keloids might also want to avoid undergoing this treatment. 

That being said, SMP treatments are certainly less painful than hair transplants. Scalp micropigmentation also requires little to no maintenance and has minimal recovery time. Depending on your goals and situation, you may need to undergo two to four treatments spaced between several weeks. After that, only touch-ups are needed for maintenance, which can be done every four to six years. Keep in mind that the skin undergoes natural exfoliation and touch-ups are needed when the pigment on your scalp begins to visibly fade.

What to Know Prior to an SMP Treatment

Before undergoing an SMP treatment, you need to be aware of a few things that can help make the procedure a success. These include the following:
SMP is not a one-time treatment. Rather, you need to undergo two to three, or sometimes even four, treatments depending on your situation. Treatments are scheduled several weeks apart to give the pigments time to settle on your scalp.
Typically, treatments can last about four to five hours. Make sure you reserve a whole day for your treatment as it may take longer than expected.
Bringing food and drinks to your appointment is not prohibited. Make sure to have easy-to-eat snacks on hand, and to keep yourself hydrated.
As mentioned, you may feel some discomfort during the SMP procedure. You can mitigate this by listening to music or watching TV. Reading books or watching a video from your phone might also help. The bottom line is to take your mind off the discomfort using an enjoyable distraction.
