Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) for long hair
The goal of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) for long hair is to shade the scalp which reduces the contrast of skin showing through the hair follicles. SMP treatment for long hair is a different process to that of a shaved head. By working section by section pigments are methodically inserted onto the scalp creating a three-dimensional shadow, which instantly restores volume to bald & thinning areas. The process is divided into separate sessions, until enough density has created the look of a full head of hair. The number of sessions required to complete each client varies, though usually completed within 3-4 sessions (each session being 2-3 hours).
More sessions are required for women, between 4-6 sessions is generally needed to make a visible difference. You should allow one week in between each session for proper healing.
Implanting pigments will not damage your existing hair follicles. . Smp is very beneficial as clients may experience regrowth and strengthening of hair follicles.
