What is SMP? Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is essentially a form of cosmetic tattoo that creates the appearance of a close cropped or shaved hair style.
So is SMP for me? Men with progressive hair-loss have few options available to avoid surgery, medication, lotions and potions to rub on the scalp. You can even get hair in a can these days! (Oh yes, people do it). In the case of a short-cropped or shaved style, Scalp Micropigmentation gives you the appearance of hair and customisation of a hairline. It is a very effective treatment to cover transplant scars or to build density where hair loss is visible, such as the crown (the rear of the head) if you wish to retain some length to your hair and disguise the thinning region of the scalp. For those among us living with Alopecia, SMP allows hairline creation on any part of the scalp - there have been many treatments delivered around the world where SMP is administered to the entire scalp, framing both the face, sides and rear of the head. Many women are now engaging in the treatment to shade along the hairline at the temples or where the hair typically parts, where it may be thin due to medication, hormonal changes or simply thinned over time. How do you do it? The clear distinction to draw here is Scalp Micropigmentation is classified as a medical cosmetic procedure, and is delivered in a medical environment (...so cast aside any thoughts you may have of a dodgy tattoo parlour on the back streets!). The equipment used is specifically designed and manufactured for the purpose of Scalp Micropigmentation. Scalp Micropigmentation is administered with a very fine needle, using medical-grade pigments, that have been formulated solely for the SMP treatment. Pain is minimal, however a topical numbing cream can be applied prior to treatment, which provides considerable pain relief. During your first treatment, the SMP Practitioner follows a process to create your hairline and/or areas where SMP is required. This is a consultative process between the client and the practitioner, so we achieve the best results possible, while managing client expectation. The second treatment is primarily to build density to create the look of fullness and further blend with your existing hair. The third treatment is generally the finishing touches - softening the hairline, perfecting the blend; all to create a realistic finished product.
