How Can Scalp Micropigmentation Help?
Prior to the introduction of scalp micropigmentation scar repair, perhaps the most popular treatment for hair loss was hair transplantation. Let’s face it, at first, it really did sound like it was too good to be true.
Well, it was. Indeed, it has worked for many individuals; however, those for whom it has not have gone through an invasive procedure at significant cost. The skin is a complex organ and manipulating it for the purposes of re-introducing new hair will always have risks. Therefore, it stands to reason that hair transplant clients are left with heavy scarring from their experience since the treatment is surgical and scarring is our body’s way of protecting itself from further injury. However, it isn’t just hair transplant clients we see, we also see many athletes and people who have suffered head injuries for accidents. As the thickest skin on the body, the scalp skin is also where the densest amount of blood vessels are found, meaning that a scar, even from a relatively small injury, is quite common.

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.
