What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

 At first glance, you may think that Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is just like regular tattooing. It is, but better.

We use 100% organic charcoal ink to make the micropigmentation look as realistic as possible, and the procedure is generally painless (depending on your resistance). If you’ve tried acupuncture or dry needling before, then the initial discomfort is similar, but not as painful as regular tattooing on other parts of the skin.

Restore Your Hairline

Your hairline is like a picture frame for your face. A receded hairline can drastically change the structural appearance and attractiveness of your face.

SMP is an effective way to restore your receded hairline. Scalp Designs uses an 8 point symmetrical system to design any hairline with precise measurements. You can opt for your original hairline, or choose type of hairline you want. Some of our clients like to bring in an imagen as a reference.

Hide Pattern Baldness

Pattern baldness, or androgenic alopecia, is the most common cause of hair loss in men and post-menopausal women. Pattern Baldness weakens the growth cycle of your hair follicles until they eventually stop growing at all.

SMP hides the appearance of pattern baldness by adding pigmentation directly to the bald or thinning areas of your scalp, decreasing the contrast between the hair and the thinning areas and creating a fuller, thicker look.

Scalp micropigmentation is a long-lasting solution suitable for any stage of pattern baldness.

Camoflage scalp scars

We understand how disheartening it can be to receive a hair transplant to mask your hair loss, only to experience a surgical scar that contrasts starkly with the healthy hair surrounding it.

Although they’re small, scalp scars can do untold damage to anyone’s self-esteem. They may draw negative attention, and unfortunately, in some circumstances, elicit a comment or two.

Scalp Micropigmentation is an excellent way to conceal even the most noticeable scars left behind after hair transplants, medical procedures, incidents, or other scalp trauma and create the appearance of a thicker, fuller head of hair.

Our scar camouflage treatment process varies from client to client because scar tissue is more unpredictable than undamaged skin. Scars tend to soak up the pigment, which means no less than 3 treatments are required to a complete a full scar camouflage treatment.

Pigments are first deposited in the scarred region, following the pattern of hair follicles. Then pigments are blended 1-2 cm above and below the scar to achieve an undetectable blend with the surrounding hair.

Add density to thinning hair

Contrary to what most people think, scalp micropigmentation isn’t just for those with shaved heads, or those with short hair. Half of our clients have long hair and they’ve turned to SMP to give the illusion of thicker hair—especially in areas where bald spots are showing.

The Treatment Process

For best results, our Scalp Micropigmentation process is often spread over 2-3 sessions. Time spent for the treatment depends on the level of the hair loss, and the type of style you want, coupled with other factors that may come into play. Here’s how it works:

9

First, you’ll undergo a consultation with one of our friendly practitioners. Here, we’ll discuss the treatment options available to you. From here, we’ll map out a plan of action so we can give you the best results for your requirements.

9

After the initial consultation, you’ll be asked to sign a consent form that outlines the conditions of your treatment and the quoted price.

9

Then we can proceed to the first treatment. Here we apply a lighter pigment to lay down the foundations of your new hairline.

9

The second treatment session is where we introduce a darker shade of pigment and fill in the finer details. This stage is where results are clearly visible.

9
If you want to go even darker, you may need a third, or even a fourth or fifth treatment. Unlike our competitors, there is no extra charge for treatments that exceed 3 sessions, unless we are working on an area that exceeds the quote’s conditions.
9
That’s it. Once you’re happy with your results no extra work or maintenance is required. You can wake up every morning with a well-groomed head of hair.
We believe in working conservatively to avoid any unnecessary errors. We live and breathe the phrase “Less is More. We can Always Add”, which is why our clients always leave the clinic happy that they’ve achieved the exact results they’re after.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is SMP?

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is an innovative hair loss solution, similar to tattooing. It creates hair-like strokes in the scalp’s epidermis that mimic the appearance of hair follicles. SMP is designed to cover hair loss, bald spots, burns, and scars on the scalp. The process makes it look like you have a full head of hair.

How long does SMP take?

Our SMP procedure is divided into multiple sessions until you achieve the appearance of a full head of hair. Typically, you will have 3-4 weekly sessions, which are 2-3 hours long.

Does it hurt to get a scalp micropigmentation treatment?

Our non-surgical hair loss treatment works a lot like acupuncture and dry needling. It generally isn’t painful. But you may take paracetamol or ibuprofen for your peace of mind.

Are the results of SMP realistic?

Yes. We use 100% charcoal pigment to mimic your existing hair and to cover up scars or bald spots. Unlike traditional tattoos, you won’t see your scalp turning blue or green.

Is SMP permanent?

SMP is considered a permanent treatment, but depending on the chemicals you use when washing your hair, sun exposure, and skin type, the pigment may wear off within 4 to 6 years. You may need a touch up then, but generally, the pigment stays on your skin forever.

Will SMP damage my existing hair follicles?

No. Since we only use organic pigments, there will be no alteration or damage to the existing hair follicles. Also, our team of expert and professional SMP practitioners are skilled and trained to work only on the areas that need the treatment.

Are there any side effects?

Unless you are allergic to charcoal pigments, scalp micropigmentation has no side effects. Prior to your appointment, we will ask you a couple of questions to make sure that the treatment is right for you.

What is the aftercare required?

During the first few days, you need to avoid certain activities like applying gel or creams to your scalp and avoid certain shampoos and conditioners. Treat the pigmented area like an open wound. You may also need to avoid certain activities that may make you sweat excessively. Don’t worry though, after your treatment, we will be giving you a list of do’s and dont’s.
