Scalp MicroPigmentation, or SMP is not just a regular hair tattoo, nor a form of cosmetic makeup but a highly specialized process during which tiny deposits of pigment are positioned within the dermal layer of the skin. When applied by a skilled practitioner, these deposits replicate the look of real shaven hair.
The technique is also known as “Cosmetic Hair Follicle replication”. The SPG is a new and promising treatment for higher density visibility and to cover bald spots. It uses a non-toxic pigment and is performed in a way to offer an accurate stimulation of baby follicles. It is applied to the scalp, in the form of small dots or lines, between existing hair (transplanted or not). It can be used between the hair for a thickening effect or on a bald area to create a shaven look.
Scalp Micropigmentation is performed for a variety of scalp conditions, including genetic male pattern baldness, scarring alopecia and scarring from neurosurgical procedures and burns. Any person who is confronted with androgenic alopecia can use this technique. Individuals, who have suffered some sort of wound or trauma in the past, whether it is in the form of a scar or a burn, can use scalp micropigmentation. Patients who have had a strip surgery can also use it to conceal their wounds and scars. Moreover, those who have undergone a hair transplant are also welcomed to have this procedure done.
