SMP, or hair micropigmentation is a procedure for men and women designed to treat the signs of thinning hair, alopecia, transplant scarring and hairline recession. During the session, a licensed specialist uses tiny needles to deposit pigment that matches your natural hair color into the scalp, giving the illusion of thicker, healthier hair. SMP is a noninvasive, non-surgical remedy for thinning hair.
Our SMP artist first applies a numbing agent to the head to reduce pain during the procedure. The practitioner then spends two to five hours using an electronic tattoo device to apply tiny dots of color directly into the skin of the scalp. The dots are placed in layers and may be of slightly different shades to produce natural-looking results.
Micropigmentation can be used on men and women to visually extend your hairline to make up for receding areas. It can also be done on scar tissue to give the illusion of hair growing where transplant scarring has occurred. In areas with thinning hair, micropigment deposited between active hair follicles makes the hair look fuller. After the treatment is complete the general appearance resembles close-cut hair.
Because it is noninvasive, there's no real recovery time required after hair micropigmentation. Your head may feel slightly sensitive or you may notice some redness for 24 to 48 hours after the procedure, but you can return to most regular activities, including work, right away. If you're scheduling another micropigmentation session, you should wait about five to seven days between sessions so any redness recedes completely and the pigment has time to settle in before the next application.
You should avoid swimming, saunas, steam rooms and excessive sun exposure during the month after treatment. During the first five days after treatment, you should not engage in heavy exercise and should keep your head completely covered when in the sun. After that point, your head can handle small periods of sun exposure, but you should still make a habit of using sunscreen and hats when outdoors. In addition to the risk of sunburn, exposure to sun can also cause fading of the pigments used.

Treatments start at $1,200 but the final cost is determined by the total surface area being treated. You might need as many as three or four separate sessions scheduled a few weeks apart to properly layer the color. The effects can last up to eight years, although you may need occasional touch-ups to reduce fading. If your scalp is dry, natural exfoliation and flaking might cause the pigment to fade more quickly, so you might need more pigment applied after three to four years. Every persons scalp is unique.
