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.

Types of Hairlines

There are three basic types of hairlines, Receded, Natural, and Hard Hairline (straight line with boxed up edges).

A hairline is created by placing pigments among the natural pattern of the hair. Even though the hair inside each follicle has stopped growing, the impression of each follicle remains. At Scalp Designs we use magnified optical glasses to clearly follow your natural pattern. This is how we restore your receded hairline. The most popular look would be more of a faded or peppered hairline. There are younger clients and those who opt for a Hard lineup (straight line w/ boxed up sides). We are professional SMP Technicians who have performed thousands of treatments. Each client who walks through our door will get our professional opinion. Scalp Designs has yet to work on a client who has regretted doing the SMP treatment. We pride ourselves in creating jobs so natural looking they are undetectable.

Scalp Designs uses an 8 point Symmetrical System when designing each hairline

This system starts with a centerline measuring from 8 separate angles creating a symmetrical hairline.

Other companies indent a ruler on your head trace the line without any measurements. We believe in taking extra time to make sure everything looks perfect…

A hairline should be created with exact measurements not by eye!!
