The scalp micro pigmentation (or SMP for short), is a medical, non-surgical, cosmetic treatment that gives the illusion of a close buzz cut hairstyle on a bald head or adds density to a thinning hairline. Scalp Micropigmentation is a form of permanent cosmetics or permanent makeup which is often referred to as a cosmetic hair or scalp tattoo, this treatment typically lasts 4-6 years. After that time, a client may experience some slight fading, to which they can come back in for a quick touch-up. The procedure can also be used to conceal scars from hair transplantation, hide the visual impact of burns or scars on the head. Scalp micro pigmentation can be performed on all skin types and colors. In contrast to tattoos, the procedure penetrates the epidermal level of the skin, and the pigment is deposited in the upper dermal level and the inks (or pigments) used are less prone to color change over time. The advantage of this procedure is that the hairline can be adjusted and freshened up with relative ease.
The procedure takes about two or three sessions, which usually last more than three hours each. Clients can choose from hundreds of shades of ink to match their original hair color and skin tone. While scalp micro pigmentation is a permanent treatment, it can be removed with a correctional procedure or laser treatment.
Scalp Micropigmentation is a great option for people who are suffering from baldness, hair loss, alopecia, scalp marks, and/or surgery scars. Also, Scalp micropigmentation is the best treatment for covering up bald spots on the scalp as well as for fixing the hairline.
