What is Scalp MicroPigmentation?

Scalp Micro-Pigmentation (also known as SMP) is more than just a hair tattoo. It is a great non-surgical procedure during which natural pigments are applied within the dermal layer of the scalp, replicating a natural shaved head look, hence also making it a great solution to hair loss.

When it comes to hair loss, there are a range of options available for those seeking a solution. From hair transplants to advanced hair systems for men and women, the technology and care behind dealing with baldness is constantly progressing and improving. One of the more recently developed solutions is Scalp Micro-pigmentation but the question is: what exactly is it? To make sure you’re up to date with this revolutionary treatment, Optima Hair have explained the process of micro-pigmentation.


The Basics of Scalp Micro-Pigmentation


The best way to understand Scalp Micro-Pigmentation is to see it as a form of tattoo. During this non-surgical procedure, a natural pigment is applied to the epidermal layer of the scalp, effectively replicating the appearance of hair follicles. Practitioners aim to camouflage the surface area of the scalp where hair loss has already occurred and, in turn, create a new hairline for the client.


Further benefits of the Procedure


As well as the obvious boost to a client’s confidence, Scalp Micro-Pigmentation also offers a way to cover any surgery scars from past procedures. For example, if a client has previously had a hair transplant procedure which brought with a few complications, SMP can be carried out in order to help camouflage any scars and imperfections.

When would I see results?


Although the effects of SMP can be noticed immediately, for optimum results, around 2-3 sessions are required with a practitioner. Each session is carried out within a sterile, comfortable environment ensuring that the patient’s experience is a positive one, meaning clients are assured that their results will be of a high quality.
