How Does Scalp Micropigmentation Work?

When it comes to the first signs of hair loss, men do their research to see how they can reverse hair loss through lifestyle and diet. Unfortunately for some, these lifestyle factors aren’t enough to save the hairline and treatments are the next step for a full head of hair.

Most men take their hair for granted, abusing it with heaps of hair gel, sprays, and other products to be the best looking guy in the club. However, the idea of losing hair never occurs until we see it on the pillow covers or on the hairbrush. Hope comes in the form of hair-loss treatments, and one of them is called, Scalp Micropigmentation (or commonly known as medical hairline tattoos).

Giving up isn’t your only option anymore thanks to modern medicine and what’s better is that the results with Scalp Micropigmentation are instant.

What Is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp pigmentation, micro scalp pigmentation, SMP, MSP, hair follicle replication, tricopigmentation hair tattooing are some of its names, but they refer to the same technique.

Scalp micropigmentation provides coverage to bald areas across the scalp, using small particles of pigment to resemble short, shaven hairs. This procedure has proven to be extremely beneficial for those that like to wear their hair closely shaved and are looking for a more even coverage. The result cannot only give the appearance of an even coverage of small hair follicles, but it can also help to define the hairline and cover any scars that you may want to disguise.

How Does Scalp Micropigmentation Work? What Happens During The Procedure?

The scalp micropigmentation procedure is less invasive than an FUE hair transplant or FUT transplant. You will start with a consultation as normal, then, on the day of your procedure, your surgeon will work with you to establish your preferred hairline and coverage.

Before the procedure can begin, the surgeon will draw on the hairline as a guide. Once you are happy, the procedure can begin. This could take up to 3 sessions, depending on the area that needs to be covered. The surgeon will apply small dots of ink sporadically, to give a natural look to the area. The colour of the ink used will be matched closely to the current hair follicles and a soft gradient will be used to give the most natural effect possible. Scalp micropigmentation can be used to cover up any unsightly scars. However, much like tattoos, the scars cannot be fresh and must be fully healed before the procedure.

 When Would You See Results?

Although the effects of SMP can be noticed immediately, for optimum results, around 2-3 sessions are required with a practitioner. Each session is carried out within a sterile, comfortable environment ensuring that the patient’s experience is a positive one, meaning clients are assured that their results will be of high quality.

Does It Last?

Although the procedure does vary from traditional tattoos elsewhere on the body, scalp micropigmentation doesn’t penetrate the skin as deep as traditional tattooing. However, scalp micropigmentation holds its color over the years. Another perk of the procedure is that you can adjust your new hairline over time, so as your natural hair starts to grey, you can ‘update’ your hairline to match.
