How Can Scalp Micropigmentation Help?
SMP For Full Scalp
If a client has lost all hair and/or has very little natural hair left, our artists design a full hair line in keeping with the client’s bone structure and facial features. Working gradually over several sessions, the artist meticulously implants all-natural and specially compounded tattoo pigments within the dermal layer of the scalp. Between sessions the work heals, and this lends itself to a natural look with depth and dimension.
As the follicles of the scalp are unique, often with one follicle producing 2 or 3 hairs, the artist can mimic this look precisely so that even someone standing right next to you will not notice that the hair stubble they see is actually tattooed. Is it any wonder why SMP has evolved into the most trusted treatment for hair loss internationally?
Micropigmentation Benefits For Men
Increased Hair Density
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.
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. By undergoing an SMP treatment, an individual’s self-confidence can be boosted as they no longer feel they have to hide.
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.
