Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a hair restoration procedure in which pigments are injected into various areas of the scalp. The pigment leaves multiple minuscule medical tattoos, mimicking the appearance of individual hair follicles. Clients choose this procedure for a variety of reasons. Some perspective recipients would like to cover up scars from previous invasive hair transplant procedures, while others aim to make their hair look fuller and more natural. Some clients use SMP to lessen the look of hair loss, resulting from degenerative hair loss conditions such as alopecia, or male pattern baldness. But baldness is not the only reason a person might consider scalp micropigmentation.
Thinning hair is another reason to undergo this innovative, non-surgical procedure. Excessively thin hair can allow the scalp to be visible, often in sharp contrast with the hair colour, and many consider this aesthetically displeasing. Though a medical hairline tattoo cannot actually replace inactive hair follicles, after as few as 3 micropigmentation sessions, recipients will have a contrast-free scalp, or the appearance of a fresh buzz cut, depending on the clients’ needs and goals.
