scalp micropigmentation SMP
Scalp micropigmentation, in short, known as SMP, is an innovative non-invasive solution to hair loss problems. SMP treats hair loss by creating an illusion of hair follicles using a unique formula of organic pigment and micro-needles. These dots are designed to replicate the appearance of natural hair where you are experiencing loss. While the process does use a procedure similar to tattooing, it’s important to note these two methods are very different, and SMP requires the skill of a specifically trained SMP artist. This process can produce results for both men and women.

hair loss issues SMP can address:
benefits of SMP for thin hair help
Provides the appearance of a full head of hair and/or a shaved/buzzed look – Restores receding hairlines – Scar concealment, including scars from failed hair transplants – Increases confidence – Long-lasting results (4 – 6 years) – Appointments in 4 hours or less – No downtime
improvement of hair transplants
Hair transplants, whether using the FUE or FUT technique, can leave scars along the back of your scalp. We can use scalp micropigmentation to disguise these scars effectively, Scalp micropigmentation can also enhance the results of hair transplants, by improving the density in the transplanted areas, or filling in areas that remain thin.
what to expect
The 1st session is used to lay the foundation of replicated hair follicles. After the first session, you will notice an immediate difference in density. The 2nd and 3rd sessions are used to add additional layers of density to create the appearance of short hair/ density and eliminate any sign of hair loss. We spend a lot of time blending into your existing hair for a seamless and natural look. We can make adjustments to the hairline in these sessions as well. We do recognize that each patient is uniquely different. From the shape of your hairline to the specific blending of pigments and needles, we custom-tailor each hair loss treatment.
After each treatment, our practitioner will provide you with aftercare to take home and instructions to follow.
