What is Scalp Micropigmentation
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a simple and minimally invasive procedure that creates the appearance of a full head of hair by carefully and meticulously placing tiny pigment impressions amongst existing hair. Each impression replicates natural hair follicles, creating a realistic look that is surprisingly low maintenance.
When delivered by one of our experts, SMP can give the appearance of naturally restored receding hairlines, thicken remaining hair, camouflage existing hair transplant scars, and/or create the look of close-cropped hair.
Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-invasive procedure, suitable for men and women. Unlike other hair loss treatments, it gives you immediate results with no downtime, and is less expensive than a hair transplant.
Heading on the right path
Whether you’re affected by thinning hair, pattern baldness, or scarring of the scalp, Scalp Micropigmentation is an immediate, affordable, and effective hair loss solution.
SMP is an excellent option for those patients who either don’t want or are not eligible for hair transplantation surgery, or as a complementary procedure for those who want the appearance of thicker, fuller hair.
Scalp Micropigmentation Process
The virtually painless procedure involves the use of highly specialized equipment and unique techniques to carefully and expertly inject all-natural, color-tailored pigments into the scalp creating a completely natural look of the patient’s hairline.
A typical procedure involves an initial consultation and two pigmentation sessions to achieve the desired results.
1. Initial Consultation
In order to gain an understanding of the results you want to achieve from your treatment, the experts at the Foundation for Hair Restoration and the Women’s Center for Hair Loss will meet with you, guide you through the process and help you decide which approach is best for you. We will create a plan of action and go over each step that needs to be taken to reach your goal and get the results you desire.
2. First pigmentation Session
During the first session, our experts lay the foundation of your new look by matching the surrounding hair’s color and density. Every detail -color variance, space filling, follicle thickness and more- is taken into account to achieve the best results.
3. Second Pigmentation Session
The second session is when thicker and denser appearance is created with more pigmentation delivered to the scalp. This session usually takes place 10 to 14 days after the first procedure.
4. Post Procedure Care
As opposed to other hair loss treatments, the care needed for Scalp Micropigmentation right after the procedure is very simple and low maintenance. You only need to wash your head the fourth day after the treatment and, during that time, avoid any strenuous activity that will prompt undesired sweating.
Once the procedure is complete, the results of a Scalp Micropigmentation treatment can last up to five years.
The Color of Nature
Through innovative and rigorous research, the Foundation for Hair Restoration and the Women’s Center for Hair Loss have developed the best possible medical grade pigment, which abides by the highest industry standards. More importantly, this property pigment is made up of natural ingredients, with no metals, which can cause color change over time.
