What is scalp micropigmentation?
Scalp micropigmentation (SMP), sometimes referred to as scalp tattooing, is a form of permanent makeup which is used to treat hair loss and thinning hair on clients of all genders. The popularity of SMP treatments has skyrocketed in recent years as many clients are opting for this non-surgical procedure over more invasive, high-risk, and expensive treatments.
What does SMP involve?
The scalp micropigmentation procedure involves an artist using a PMU (digital) machine and needle cartridges to deposit small dots of pigment into the skin on the scalp to accurately replicate the appearance of shaved, natural hair follicles.
Each scalp micropigmentation treatment will take several hours and most clients will be required to undergo multiple treatments to achieve the desired results. How many treatments they require will depend on the extent of their hair loss or thinning, their skin-type and the desired results.
Who is eligible for SMP?
The treatment can be hugely beneficial to clients of all genders. It is effective in treating hair loss for both male and female pattern baldness. It can also be used to treat clients with alopecia or those who have scarring on the scalp from injury, previous hair transplants or other surgeries.
It can also be used to treat clients who have undergone chemotherapy or radiotherapy which has resulted in hair loss. However, permission should always be given by a doctor first before undergoing the procedure in this instance. Clients may not be eligible for the treatment due to compromised immune system and other associated risks of chemo and radiotherapies.
The treatment is also suitable for those who suffer from trichotillomania: a compulsive disorder in which sufferers pull out hair, eyebrows or eyelashes. It is also effective for anyone with naturally thinner or fine hair who are unhappy with how it looks and want to create the illusion of thicker, fuller hair.
