SMP is performed by adding pigment to the scalp, with small needles, to replicate tiny hair follicles. The treatment helps with complete hair loss, thinning and/or bald patches. It can also be used for scar revisions on the scalp (such as those from prior hair transplant services). SMP treatment can help both men and women who are experiencing any form of balding or density loss.
Most clients will require 3-4 sessions to achieve the desired results. Approximately 7-10 days in between sessions is given to allow the scalp to heal and the pigment to settle in for better results with following sessions.

SMP is a non-invasive treatment using very small needles to deposit small dots using ink to give the illusion of hair follicles. Scalp micropigmentation can tremendously help people with any form of hair loss. The result creates a realistic illusion of tiny hair follicles that restore the appearance of fuller hair. Scalp micropigmentation is a very good option for people with:
This innovative, simple, and effective treatment can help both men and women who are experiencing any form of hair loss or density loss. When carried out by a licensed professional, scalp micropigmentation can create the look of close-cropped hair, create the look of a restored hairline, the look of a thicker hair, and camouflage transplant scarring.
The cost of scalp micropigmentation will highly depend on the area of skin that has to be worked on, as well as on how complex the process is going to be. Consequently, it varies from person to person, and only after a complete evaluation of your scalp will we be able to estimate the price you will have to pay for the treatment. However, the cost ranges between $350 and $3,500, with the average cost being $500. The following are cost estimates for various problems concerning the hair:
Every person has their own pain threshold, which means that some people who get scalp micropigmentation will experience a low to mild level of pain, whereas others may experience more moderate pain. Scalp micropigmentation uses a dotting technique, which is significantly less painful than a traditional tattoo scraping technique. In addition to your personal tolerance of pain, your perception of pain can be influenced by environmental, psychological, and emotional factors.
These are some of the additional factors that might affect the way you experience pain during scalp micropigmentation:
One thing you can do while the specialist is performing scalp micropigmentation in order to keep your mind off the pain and reduce the unpleasant sensation is keeping yourself distracted and busy, such as watching a video or a movie, scrolling through social media, and using your phone in general.
If done correctly by a highly skilled and trained professional, scalp micropigmentation can look incredibly real, and no one will know you have gotten the treatment unless you say otherwise. According to the experience of most people who decide to get scalp micropigmentation, their co-workers or family members say they look younger or ask if they got a new haircut without being able to pinpoint the exact change.
There are many factors the professional that will perform scalp micropigmentation will consider to ensure it will look as real as possible on the client, such as:
Unfortunately, if you struggle with permanent hair loss, scalp micropigmentation cannot make your hair grow back, as the purpose of the treatment is to create the illusion that you have more hair density than you actually have. On the bright side, scalp micropigmentation will give you the look of short hair or a tight buzz-cut. It is recommended to keep your hair on the short side in order to obtain the most natural outcome.
Lastly, if you are worried about scalp micropigmentation damaging the hair you already have, you should not be concerned at all, as this treatment is similar to tattooing. Therefore, the pigments used will have no side effects on hair follicles, and you should expect your typical hair growth to remain the same after you get scalp micropigmentation.
