What Is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)?

If you’re searching for solutions to your thinning, balding, or receding hairline, there is now a wide selection of different hair loss treatment options available. Hair transplants and advanced hair systems for men and women are continuously progressing and evolving with state-of-the-art hair restoration techniques and technologies. 

One of them is scalp micropigmentation (otherwise known as SMP). It’s a famous non-surgical hair loss solution wherein natural pigments are used within the dermal layer of the scalp, creating a natural shaved head look. It’s more than just a hair tattoo, as it lessens the appearance of thinning, balding, and bald spots and produces a 3D effect that gives hair an increased thickness and fullness.

Today, SMP is a popular hair loss treatment for those who are experiencing hair loss issues. Now that you know what exactly scalp micropigmentation is, you might ask yourself: how does it work? Here at The Hair Transplant Center – Fort Worth, we make sure you’re up-to-date with this revolutionary hair loss treatment.

How Is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) Performed?

Scalp micropigmentation is best described as a form of scalp tattoo. It is a groundbreaking innovation that duplicates the appearance of thicker and fuller hair. 

When performing SMP, our skilled and experienced hair transplant physician applies a natural pigment (ink) to the epidermal layer of the scalp using ultra-fine needles to create thousands of microdot tattoos (producing the appearance of natural hair follicles). This stippling pattern gives the effect of hair follicles that look like you’ve cut your hair close to the scalp. 

This procedure involves a huge amount of attention to detail. The purpose of this technique is to cover the surface area of hair loss at the scalp to form a new hairline. Typically, you will need around two to three sessions (four to five hours each) for scalp micropigmentation to achieve desirable results. During the initial consultation, discuss with our hair transplant doctor the perfect color that you want that closely matches your natural color and your skin tone. 

Now, if you want an affordable hair loss solution but don’t want to go under the knife, then SMP might be the best hair restoration treatment for you. It can be an instant and long-lasting solution that achieves extraordinary results.

Who Can Benefit From Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)?

The “shaved style” of scalp micropigmentation lets you choose where to create your hairline. This affects the structure of your face, it makes thin hair look thicker and bald areas denser. 

SMP is an ideal hair loss solution for people dealing with the following hair loss problems:

  • Thinning hair
  • Those with alopecia areata
  • Male and female pattern baldness
  • Those who’ve had previous hair transplants
  • Those who are experiencing uneven hair loss

How Long Does Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) Last?

Scalp micropigmentation produces semi-permanent results. As time goes by, our skin regenerates and sheds the outer layer, which means the pigmented follicles will fade after some time. 

It can last between five to six years, depending on the chosen treatment. It’s also important that you understand that if the procedure is done properly, artificial follicles will fade but the color will stay the same.

Does Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) Hurt?

You may ask yourself, how painful is scalp micropigmentation? The answer is: it depends. You may experience discomfort from this procedure. It would depend on your pain tolerance. Nonetheless, before the procedure takes place, our hair transplant surgeon will apply a topical numbing solution to your scalp to help alleviate the discomfort. 

What Are the Advantages of SMP?

Now, let’s check out the advantages you can get from choosing SMP:

  • It’s a non-invasive procedure. SMP is a less invasive treatment that does not involve any surgical incision into the scalp.
  • It requires less pain and discomfort. Numbing agents are applied to the scalp before treatment, which largely decreases pain and discomfort.
  • It’s a low-maintenance hair loss solution. SMP is only required to be repeated once every three to five years.
  • It can conceal scars. It can also hide any scar by working with the natural form of your hair to emphasize it.
  • It’s a low-cost procedure. SMP is more affordable than a hair transplant procedure, as well as long-term over the counter or prescription drugs such as Rogaine and Propecia.

How Do You Prepare for the SMP Procedure?

During the initial consultation, you will be advised on what to expect and how you should prepare before the procedure is implemented.

Some of the general guidelines would be:

  • Plan to take a shower before each treatment because you are not allowed to wash or wet your scalp for four days after each session.
  • Typically, each treatment session takes between four and five hours each.
  • Even if it’s only a small area, three to four sessions are still needed since scalp micropigmentation requires layering of colors.
  • Treatment sessions will be scheduled a few weeks apart.

What To Do After Each SMP Treatment Session

After each scalp micropigmentation treatment, you will be instructed with specific care instructions. Your post-treatment care includes:

  • Try to avoid swimming pools, saunas, and steam rooms for several days after each SMP treatment.
  • Keep out of the sun for several days after each treatment; use SPF with 30 to 50 sunscreen protection thereafter.
  • Avoid strenuous exercises for five days after each treatment.
  • Moisturize the treated area after the fourth day of each SMP treatment.

How Much Does Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) Cost?

The cost of scalp micropigmentation largely depends on the extent of hair loss. It may cost you more if a lot of work is needed and the treatment will require several sessions to complete. SMP is more affordable compared to other hair restoration techniques such as hair transplants. 

It also depends on the expertise of the hair restoration surgeon. A doctor with years of experience might be able to charge more because he can design a hairline that is tailored to your facial features and can look good even as you age.

Are There Any Risks Involved in the SMP Technique?

Like any other popular cosmetic procedures like tattooing and eyebrow microblading, there are related potential side effects with scalp micropigmentation treatments. Most often, it involves redness and itchiness, which usually goes away for a few days as the skin on the scalp heals itself. 

Generally, possible side effects are rarely experienced with SMP treatments. However, it is important to make an initial consultation with our hair transplant physician to discuss the risks involved in the treatment process before you finally decide whether or not to undergo SMP treatment.
