Scalp micropigmentation (otherwise called “SMP”) is a cosmetic procedure in which small, tiny dots of pigment are tattooed into the scalp to create the appearance of a fuller head of hair. The procedure is typically used to help men and women who are experiencing hair loss or balding, and can help to create the illusion of a closely-shaved head of hair or add density to thinning hair. SMP is considered a semi-permanent procedure and the pigments used will fade over time.
Yes! SMP is used to help both men and women who are experiencing hair loss, hair thinning, and balding. This technique will help to add density to thinning areas, restore receding hairlines, and re-create the look of a full head of hair.
Not at all! SMP only creates the look of hair by tattooing tiny dots on the scalp that resemble the appearance of hair follicles. It does not affect the hair growth because it only changes the appearance of the scalp by adding pigment to the surface of the skin. It does not change or affect the actual hair or the ability to grow hair.
Absolutely! SMPis designed to blend with your existing hair and create the appearance of a fuller head of hair. The pigments used are carefully matched to your natural hair colour and the impressions (dots) will be strategically placed to create the illusion of natural-looking hair growth.
Of course! The pigments used in SMP is matched to your hair follicle colour, not necessarily to the colour of your actual hair. If your hair is very light grey or white, it may be necessary to use a slightly darker coloured pigment to ensure we can achieve a natural looking result.
Yes! Your final result will look like a closely shaved head. In cases of total or near baldness, we can completely customize your final result in regards to hairline shape, overall hair density, and colour.
Absolutely! SMP is a safe and effective option for enhancing the results of your hair transplant by adding density and creating the illusion of more hair in areas of thinning. It is also a fantastic option to help cover and camouflage the scars from FUT or FUE hair transplants, as well as add density and create the illusion of more hair in areas of thinning. Please note that you must wait at least 1 year after your hair transplant before proceeding with Scalp Micropigmentation.
Yes! Scalp micropigmentation is the only way to truly and successfully camouflage a hair transplant scar. It will work with FUE and FUT scars. We have worked with many transplant patients and you can see some of our SMP work on those people HERE.
Women — No. We will tattoo through the hair you have to create the illusion of hair-like density and achieve a natural look.
Men — It depends on the specific areas of hair loss and thinning, and what your desired final look is. We will evaluate your individual case and provide a personalized plan to help you achieve the best results.
If you are using Finasteride/Propecia — You do not need to stop treatment, and you may continue usage before, during, and after your scalp micropigmentation sessions.
If you’re using Rogaine — You’ll need to temporarily pause treatment during the course of your scalp micropigmentation appointments, but it can be started again afterwards. Don’t worry, this temporary pause in treatment will not affect your hair growth results. Appointments are spaced closely together to minimize time in between sessions so you can get back to using your products asap!
Scalp micropigmentation is a type of cosmetic tattoo and will not wash off, however, it will fade over time and may need to be refreshed every 3-4 years. Frequency of sessions depends on a number of factors including: the pigment colour used (lighter colours fade faster), lifestyle (sun exposure), and if any chemical peels come into contact with treated areas.
Scalp micropigmentation refreshers are typically recommended every 3-5 years, or whenever you need it. We don’t love putting people on a schedule because if it’s been 5 years and your results still look great and dark enough for your liking, then there’s no reason to come in for a touch up yet!
