What is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)?
Whether you’ve just started thinning or have already lost most of your hair, Scalp Micropigmentation will work creating the look of a hair follicle and your correct hair colour throughout bald or balding areas, this allows the client to achieve the look of a full head of short cropped hair immediately or fill in any thinning areas to create the appearance of a fuller head of hair this will then lead to a rise in self confidence. Scalp Micropigmentation is a solution for those that suffer from pattern baldness, alopecia, diffuse thinning and for those that have lost a lot of hair.
Scalp Micropigmentation treatment is also great for those with only minor thinning or recession. Scalp Pigmentation can help add density to thinning areas, creating an undetectable illusion of thicker and fuller hair. Giving you the look of a full head of hair & style.
Scalp Micropigmentation is pigment implanted underneath the skin’s outer layer into the dermis layer. The initial layer of your skin is known as the Epidermis. Underneath the Epidermis is the second layer known as the Dermis layer of your skin. The Dermis layer is split into two, you have the upper layer and the lower layer, the difference between a tattoo and Scalp Micropigmentation is that with SMP the pigment is implanted into the less painful upper layer.
Scalp micropigmentation is an innovative, non-invasive treatment that produces really quick results. The procedure is certainly not as time-consuming to administer as a hair transplant and recovery times are quick. It doesn’t involve the waiting game as is the case for medicated solutions for promoting hair growth and with SMP, you’ll see a result immediately.
The treatment can last from 2-5 hours depending on complexity of the case.
Please remember SMP isn’t a way of promoting actual hair growth but it is for giving the illusion of hair.
How does SMP transform the appearance of thinning hair?
It works by a technician implanting natural pigments just below the surface of your skin using a machine that’s been fitted with a microneedle. Once healed, the series of tiny dots that have been implanted provide the appearance of hair follicles that sit underneath the hairline giving the impression of density – similar to the hair fibres and colouring sprays in todays market, only SMP is a more permanent solution.
