Scalp micropigmentation, or SMP, is perfect for women who are thinning on the top and crown area of their head.
The needs of each client are unique, however rest assured that although scalp micropigmentation was originally developed for men, women can benefit too. If you want to do something about your hair loss, scalp micropigmentation may provide the answer.
How does the process work?
The application of scalp micropigmentation is usually quite painless. There may be a little discomfort in more sensitive regions like the temples, but most people report only very mild sensitivity during their procedure. We offer our own numbing lotion for women who may be concerned about any discomfort, although for most people it really isn’t necessary.
When implanting our inks, we match the hair perfectly, then go one shade darker, to give the shadow illusion to get the ‘full head of hair’ look that is desired. We perform our procedure very softly through the frontal hairline and breaking up the impressions to give it the natural appearance. Going through the top and sides of thin hair, we go much more dense to reduce any contrast in shade between the color of the hair and the color of the scalp, to provide the maximum illusion of density.
This procedure usually requires 2-3 sessions to achieve the desired result. These procedures are completed within a week of each other, and the recovery time between each session can be as little as a few hours. Micropigmentation is considered semipermanent.
While the effects may last up to eight years, the treated area will fade over time since all skin naturally exfoliates itself.
Every client has a unique situation so we cannot provide exact costs, but we can provide potential clients with a cost estimate based upon an initial consultation.
