Scalp Tattooing SMP Treatment
If you suffer from hair loss, you’re not alone.
In fact, one study showed that 42% of men between the age of 18-49 had moderate to extensive hair loss. While it’s true that hair loss increases with age, it can come earlier in life for many men – particularly those who suffer from male pattern baldness.
Scalp micropigmentation is a process that uses microneedles to “tattoo” pigment into the scalp. It creates the appearance of tiny hair follicles to restore the look of a fuller head of hair. The procedure replicates your natural hair follicles while strengthening and adding density to thinning areas.
How is it done?
Scalp micropigmentation treatments usually are split over three separate sessions, although the actual time can vary depending on the extent of your hair loss, the style you require, and other factors.
During the treatments, micro needles are used to layer pigment dots on your scalp in a process that resembles getting a tattoo. But SMP is a highly-technical, specialized process performed by trained technicians. The tiny “dots” of pigment, placed in the dermal layer of skin, create the illusion of a full head of shaved hair.
Before your first SMP treatment, at a consultation, Nadine will meet with you and discuss your requirements, including the shape of your hairline, its positioning, as well as the density and shade of your pigmentation.
A tiny wound is created in the skin when each dot is applied. A scab heals over the wound and eventually falls away, taking some of the implanted pigment with it. Furthermore, the immune system attacks the pigments, causing them to shrink. This gradual “fading” of the dots varies from person to person but necessitates the need for multiple sessions to get the required pigment shade.
