Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP)
Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP)
Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP): Embedding pigment to address thinning hair. SMP involves depositing colour onto the scalp, providing a non-surgical solution for various causes of hair thinning. Suitable for all hair types, including genetic hair thinning and even scars on the scalp, the procedure entails the precision application of specialised pigments using needles, mimicking the appearance of natural hair follicles.
SMP is suitable for:
- Individuals experiencing hair thinning for any reason.
- Those unable to achieve the desired hair density throughtraditional transplantation due to insufficient donor hair.
- People with budget constraints.
- Those with a fear of pain seek quick results.
- Can Scalp Micro Pigmentation be combined with permanent hair transplantation?
Absolutely, SMP can be performed alongside permanent hair transplantation. In cases where achieving the desired hair density through transplantation is not possible, such as in patients with insufficient donor hair, SMP can complement the results. Additionally, SMP can be used to conceal scars from both FUT and FUE procedures, providing a natural look.
How many sessions are needed to see results?
Generally, to achieve the best results from SMP, a total of 3 sessions are recommended. Each session should be spaced approximately 1 week apart, allowing the skin to rest and the color to settle. The color will gradually intensify after each session and will still appear natural.
What is the process of SMP?
During Scalp Micro Pigmentation, the physician will deposit pigment onto the scalp in small dots, mimicking the appearance of natural hair follicles. This process creates a look similar to real hair roots, achieving a natural appearance.
After undergoing SMP, there’s no need for recovery time. Following the procedure, there might be slight redness on the scalp that typically subsides within 1-2 days.
How long do the results last?
After undergoing 3-4 sessions of SMP, the color can last for 1-2 years. However, the fading of the color might be less than this timeframe and can vary based on various internal and external factors, such as the patient’s skin characteristics. It’s recommended to have a touch-up session after 1-2 years to maintain the color’s sharpness.
Guidelines before having SMP:
• Do not apply hair oil, styling gel, or hair fiber products within 24 hours before the SMP procedure.
