The reasons for choosing scalp micropigmentation – or SMP – are obvious. Patients look for a sense of renewed sense of self-worth, which can be lost when experiencing hair loss or alopecia. Though male pattern baldness is a very common occurrence (nearly 50% of men over the age of 50 are affected by it), it can still deal a great blow to self-esteem. After undergoing a successful SMP procedure, patients feel happier and see significant improvements to many aspects of their lives, from their relationships and social lives to their careers. With many patients looking into SMP to recreate the look of a youthful, full head of hair, one of the first concerns associated with the treatment, naturally, is cost.
The costs of the procedure can vary considerably, depending on a number of factors. Each patient’s situation as well as the type of provider offering the treatment will weigh heavily on the final pricing. This is why doing your research and finding an experienced and professional clinic is crucial. It is worth noting that often discounts are available, so all of this shopping around isn’t for nothing. Extra time spent doing your homework can lead to money saved in the end.
