Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP)
Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves tattooing the scalp with tiny pigments to replicate the appearance of hair follicles. It is commonly used to create the illusion of a shaved head or to camouflage bald spots and thinning hair.
The process of Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) typically involves the following steps:
- Consultation: The first step is to have a consultation with a trained SMP practitioner. During this session, the practitioner will assess your scalp condition, discuss your desired outcome, and answer any questions you may have.
- Design: Once you decide to proceed with SMP, the practitioner will work with you to design a customized treatment plan. This includes selecting the appropriate pigment color and hairline shape to achieve a natural-looking result.
- Preparation: On the day of the treatment, your scalp will be cleaned and prepared for the procedure. This may involve shaving or trimming any remaining hair to ensure an even application of pigments.
- Pigmentation: Using specialized needles and equipment, the SMP practitioner will meticulously tattoo tiny pigment dots onto your scalp. They will carefully match the color and density of your existing hair follicles or desired appearance.
- Layering and blending: The pigments are applied in multiple layers to create depth and texture, giving a more realistic look. The practitioner will also blend the pigments into your surrounding hair if necessary for seamless integration.
- Healing and aftercare: After the procedure, you may experience some redness or tenderness on your scalp, which typically subsides within a few days. Following specific aftercare instructions provided by the practitioner is crucial to ensure proper healing and long-lasting results.
- Touch-ups: In some cases, multiple sessions or touch-ups may be required to achieve the desired outcome or make adjustments as needed.
It’s important to note that each SMP procedure can vary depending on individual needs and preferences, so it’s best to consult with a professional for personalized advice and information.
