Micropigmentation

If you’re experiencing balding or hair loss, micropigmentation may be for you. This permanent hair tattoo technique acts as a solution for hair loss. Even if you’ve undergone hair restoration surgery in the past, have worn hair systems or have scars or skin conditions, scalp pigmentation can still work for you.

Scalp micropigmentation is the process of replicating the appearance of shaven hair, by introducing thousands of tiny pigment deposits into the epidermis of the scalp. When placed by a skilled technician, the recipient appears as if they have a full head of hair, shaved to a very short length.

Without a doubt, scalp micropigmentation is the fastest growing solution for male and female hair loss in recent history. It is non-invasive, has universal appeal and is permanent or we have semi-permanent procedures available. Furthermore, it remains the only permanent hair loss fix to offer instantaneous, guaranteed results.

Numerous terms are used to describe this process. These terms include scalp pigmentation, micro scalp pigmentation, SMP, MSP, hair follicle replication, tricopigmentation and hair tattooing. Please note that all these terms refer to the same basic scalp technique.

Scalp micropigmentation – commonly known as SMP for short – is not just a regular hair tattoo. It’s a highly specialised process where tiny deposits of pigment are positioned within the dermal layer of the skin on the scalp. When applied by a skilled practitioner (which should always be the case), these deposits replicate the look of real shaven hair or really short hair. SMP treatments can be as flexible as you need them to be with you specifying the required shape of your frontal hairline and side profile in order to request a defined or soft hairline.

When it comes to a permanent hair tattoo, you can opt for a more receded look or use lighter pigments for a softer look – like any surgery, it’s entirely up to you. SMP is intended to create the style of hair that you’ve either always wanted or are trying to restore from a previous time. Regardless of your skin type, permanent micropigmentation is guaranteed to work. SMP is a permanent solution for hair loss; all that is required is that you keep your hair cut to the right length using standard hair clippers, an electric face shaver or razor. The length that the hair should be cut to is solely dependent upon the extent of your hair loss. It’s also important that you keep your sin healthy and hydrated by regularly moisturising your scalp and drinking lots of water. A short touch-up session may be required for some individuals from time to time, however, in such cases, these sessions are usually at least five years apart depending on your specific needs and requirements.

If you decide to go ahead with SMP, you should be invited to participate in a free consultation session which will be conducted face-to-face. If, however, you’re based overseas, consultations can usually be completed via email or Skype in most cases. It’s all dependent on who you use.

During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you need, and advice will be provided that is specific to your own individual circumstances. It is important to note that your consultation is completely without obligation, and is conducted in a friendly, informal manner of which you shouldn’t feel any pressure.

Should you choose to proceed with treatment, usually at the end of your consultation or when you have had time to consider your options, the company will arrange suitable dates, times, and a location for your SMP treatment sessions. The majority of SMP treatments are completed within 2-3 sessions but additional sessions may be required depending on your specific circumstances. All of this will be discussed when you speak to a trained and professional SMP practitioner.

The result you can expect is directly linked to the skill of your individual practitioner in addition to the quality of the pigments that are applied. Therefore, it’s important to talk openly and honestly with your practitioner about your specific requirements in order to gain a realistic understanding of what to expect.

You’ll be delighted to hear that the answer is absolutely, yes! Many individuals have acquired scars and skin blemishes during their lifetime for a number of reasons that they wish to conceal. There are a plethora of reasons as to how this can occur including trip and FUE scars caused by hair restoration surgery, accident-related scars and other imperfections such as burns or skin conditions. While scalp micropigmentation used to be commonly used to conceal alopecia, it is now used for a variety of reasons.

Permanent hair tattooing can be a great success and change your life for the better. With the right techniques and trained technician, a realistic and satisfying result can be achieved. SMP is hugely adaptable with wide range of options on offer. However, it’s important to keep in mind that it’s a natural occurrence for short term fading to take place – it’s a normal, functional part of the healing process. If, at any point, you have any questions or concerns about SMP, it’s important to use the appropriate methods to contact your practitioner. They are there to help you throughout the entire SMP process.

The world famous scalp pigmentation technique has taken years to perfect. Therefore, when it comes to SMP, it’s so important that prospective clients understand that it is not just about the results that are visible today, but more importantly, the appearance of the treated scalp in years to come. As the popularity of the treatment has grown, it’s so important to use practitioners who have sound recommendations that can prove and provide case studies that their pigments will never change colour. Regular inks, such as day-to-day tattoo ink, are not suitable for this type of treatment. Therefore, it’s so important to avoid using a company who aren’t verified or legitimate.
