Are you bothered by hair loss or thinning? If so, then scalp micropigmentation may be just what you need to restore the appearance of a healthier and fuller head of hair.
Scalp micropigmentation uses tiny needles to implant tattoo ink or semi-permanent pigment under the scalp in order to help the thinning area look denser.
Continue reading to learn all about scalp micropigmentation and if it’s right for you.
What Is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a non-surgical treatment that uses dots of implanted pigment to address thinning and make hair appear fuller.
How Does Scalp Micropigmentation Work?
Scalp micropigmentation works in much the same way as microblading – a treatment that enhances eyebrow shape, definition, and fullness. However, there are several key distinctions between SMP and microblading.
To start, scalp micropigmentation uses an electric tattoo device, rather than a handheld blade, in order to penetrate the scalp and deposit ink in the form of tiny layered dots.
This process is known as pointillism and incorporates different shades to mimic the appearance of a shadow on the scalp.
When performed by a highly-skilled and experienced SMP provider, the dots are undetectable and made to resemble hair follicles.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Treatment?
Many individuals with hair loss or thinning can benefit from scalp micropigmentation, including those who have cancer, alopecia, and male or female pattern baldness
How Long Does Scalp Micropigmentation Take?
Treatment time depends on the amount of scalp being treated and can vary from patient to patient. That being said, the process often takes several hours.
How Many Sessions Are Needed?
Most women and men achieve desired fullness with a series of three-to-four scalp micropigmentation treatments. Sessions are typically scheduled several weeks apart.
