ABOUT SMP

Scalp Micropigmentation is the ultimate in non-surgical male and female hair follicle replication; an incredible life-changing treatment where natural pigments are applied at the epidermal level of the scalp to replicate the natural appearance of real hair follicles. Scalp micropigmentation can be used to camouflage baldness either as a standalone procedure for someone who does not want to undergo a hair transplant or combined with a hair transplant to enhance a surgical result. At other times, the micropigmentation can be used to camouflage a scar, for instance, a linear donor scar in the back of the head, with or without hair transplant into the scar.

THE PROCESS

Micropigmentation refers to medical tattooing of the scalp used for camouflaging purposes. It is undertaken using a special machine outfitted with sterile, disposable instrumentation to deposit pigment at the surface of the scalp to decrease the colour contrast between hair and bald scalp. Scalp micropigmentation is as much an art as it is a science, and our team has extensive experience performing a variety of micropigmentation methods. Most oftentimes, the technique involves the placement of very fine dots that are colour matched to the hair or a shade darker than the native hair to simulate natural hairs. In short hairstyles, it can mimic natural hair and work very well with this type of hairstyle. In completely shaved heads, it can be used either to camouflage previous donor scars or to simulate hairs that would appear in a non-balding scalp. There are many different scenarios in which micropigmentation can be applied and there are a variety of methods used to accomplish those objectives.
