Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a tattooing technique in which minute, metabolically inert pigment granules are implanted below the epidermis with artistic strokes, mimicking the short hair appearance of a closely shaved scalp. It is an ancient Asian beautification practice that has gained popularity around the world. SMP may be used to enhance hair transplants, for hair transplant repair procedures, to camouflage linear scars or in some cases as an alternative to hair transplant surgery. Because it is used to create the look of thicker or denser hair, it is an excellent way to blend scars, hypogonadism or partial alopecia, or filling thinning areas into your natural hair.
Scalp Micropigmentation is bio-absorbable by the immune system through Phagocytosis in approximately two years. If, for any reason, a patient decides to use other treatment techniques, the Scalp Micropigmentation performed earlier, does not create any constraints or deterrents for additional treatments. The pigment simply fades away but does not change color.
The best way to know if you are a good candidate for any kind of hair enhancement is to set up a consultation and to learn about all your hair restoration treatment options.
Scalp Micropigmentation restores a natural, more youthful look, with potentially positive psychological effects, such as a boost in confidence.
This patient has scarring alopecia, so she would not be a candidate for surgery at this time. Many practices would not have anything to offer her, but our team customized a treatment plan of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) to camouflage her thinning/bald patches. Then she is doing a series of Z-Factors to help stimulate potential hair growth to give her a 3-dimensional looking result.
