1. IMMEDIATE RESULTS

A lot of clients enjoy the fact that even after the first session, they can see a new hairline and the light results of their SMP session. The second session is usually done within a week or two and that will give the clients a more visible darker, denser results.

2. SMP (SCALP TATTOO) IS LONG LASTING

SMP will stay in the skin for years to come but at some point it will need to be touched up. During that session a new layer of ink will be deposited into the skin that will make the faded procedure pop up again and look more crisp and darker. As everybody’s skin is different, it will depend on the individual when they will have to come in for a touch up session. Most of the people will need to come in anywhere between 2 to 4 years.

3. LOW MAINTENANCE

SMP is a great solution for many clients who are busy in their lives and don’t have time every morning to spend on “doing their hair” with fibers or sprays and styling their hair to camouflage the thinning areas or bald spots. With SMP you simply buzz or shave, wash and go. (Unless it’s a density case, there is no shaving needed). Every few years book your touch up appointment and then you’re good to go for another few years.

4. NATURAL LOOKING RESULTS..

The process involves the ability of an experienced SMP technician, who can work on different skin tones and types to create natural looking hairline design and perfect blending technique into existing hair follicles. Specialized pigments / inks for SMP and the technician’s ability to choose the perfect shade appropriate for client skin color, when done properly the micropigmentation will create a convincingly natural appearance of hair follicles.

5. CONFIDENCE BOOSTING.

The procedure boosts confidence and self-esteem. As we know, hair loss and balding can have very strong psychological effects. Many people feel anxiety, depression, social isolation and low self-esteem after thinning or losing their hair. Our clients notice an immediate confidence boost even after the first session. They don’t feel self-conscious when they have to take their hat off. In fact many start dressing better, leaving their hat at home and going out to enjoy their lives and their new hairlines with boosted confidence.

6. NON SURGICAL SOLUTION

SMP offers a very safe approach to hair loss. There is no cutting into the skin or stitching like with hair transplants so in the long run there won’t be any scarring or damage to the skin. During pigmentation we stay close to the surface of the skin. It doesn’t go as deep as hair follicles so there is no damage to the existing transplanted hair follicles that are growing or the clients existing hair follicles. Skin heals fully in a few days so there is no need for downtime and most clients can go back to work and carry on with their lives. Some caution has to be followed with keeping the scalp clean and avoiding sweating profusely for a few days. No sauna or swimming for about 2 weeks. Follow your SMP Aftercare for best healing.

7. SAFE AND EFFECTIVE

As long as the SMP is carried out by the experienced, licensed technician, all infection control regulations will be carried out and sterile needles and disinfected tools will be used. This reduces the risk of any problems and infections. Then it is also up to the client to keep the area clean and to follow the after care instructions. SMP can be enjoyed by men who experience thinning and hair loss. No medications are needed with scalp micropigmentation or after but on the other hand many clients will need to take medications after her transplants for months possibly even years and all those medications have side effects

8. AFFORDABLE AND COST EFFECTIVE.

Scalp pigmentation is an affordable option for hair loss in comparison to other hair loss replacements. It ends up being a fraction of the cost of hair transplants, which are very expensive and start at about three times the price or more of SMP. Most people are not even happy with the density they achieve with just one hair transplant. The hair systems (wigs) can become costly because of the upkeep and new systems that have to replace the used ones and maintenance adds up over the months and years. Hair fibers, sprays, etc all cost money and don’t give you long-term effects and basically wash down the drain daily, resulting in more products needing to be reapplied, not even mentioning how messy they are. Minoxidil (Rogaine), finasteride, or PRP, become costly with time with minimal results that satisfy the clients.

9. PROVEN, GUARANTEED RESULTS

Many hair loss products claim hair regrowth and promise a lot but don’t deliver. Many clients still spend their money in hopes that their lotions and potions will create results. Let’s face it, if they were working there wouldn’t be any bald men around. Scalp micropigmentation however, delivers visible results without the claims of hair regrowth or hair follicle regeneration. SMP creates the illusion of hair follicles with immediate results.

10. SMP IS A QUICK SOLUTION.

SMP provides a quick solution to hair loss. The full procedure usually takes anywhere within three weeks to a couple of months. You can enjoy your new hairline and look much younger and feel the confidence growing in weeks compared to hair transplants which take 6 to 9 months to see the final results of all the transplanted hair follicles growing. With Scalp Pigmentation the skin is healed within days for you to enjoy the results. With medications it will also take months and not everyone will even notice any results. If you lost your hair a long time ago and there are no dormant follicles in the scalp, sorry to say, but nothing will regrow.

11. FAST HEALING AND QUICK RECOVERY.

You will need very minimal healing time. Many clients return to work the next day or in a couple of days as long as their job is clean and doesn’t involve sweating. We ask that you stay away from prolonged exposure to sun, swimming, saunas, and profuse sweating for at least 2 weeks after each SMP session. There is no scabbing / oozing , no need for dressings or bandages. Redness usually subsides within 24 hours (a little longer if your skin is really white and sensitive). Daily activities can continue without down time. You will be provided with the Aftercare Instructions to follow.

12. SMP MAKES YOU LOOK YOUNGER

As we frame your face perfectly with SMP hairline design, you will start looking like your younger self. Many people, when looking at a balding man, assume he must be at least 10 years older than he actually is. So restoring that hairline will give you a youthful appearance. Many people will notice that you look better, younger, more rested without noticing that micropigmentation was done if it’s done properly with a natural looking hairline. It’s visible but it doesn’t stand out for other people to notice

13. SMP CAN BE DONE AT ANY AGE, ANY SKIN COLOR OR ETHNICITY.

Our clients range in age from 17 years old to 74 years old. From thinning to bolding to full head alopecia clients. With different backgrounds and ethnicity. This is the ultimate beauty of SMP procedure!

14. SMP CAN HIDE IMPERFECTIONS.

It is a perfect solution to camouflage scars from previous injuries, surgeries or hair transplants. Although we can’t make the scars disappear, we can make them less visible. Imperfect hairlines can get a boost with SMP to make them fuller and denser. Scarring Alopecia, Traction Alopecia, or any form of patchy or uneven hair growth can be improved.

15. SMP IS PERFECT IN COMBINATION WITH HAIR TRANSPLANT.

SMP can make your hair transplant look more dense and darker, making the areas of the scalp between the hair that is growing- pigmented. It will create the illusion of fuller hair. At the same time SMP can camouflage the FUE or FUT scars after transplants.

16. SMP CAN BE A SOLUTION FOR ALOPECIA.

There is no cure for Alopecia and many people struggle with different forms of that condition. For those with patchy hair growth or traction alopecia hair loss, SMP can fill in and pigment the areas making them less visible. It can restore hairlines or define temple areas. For full head alopecia totalis, or universalis, SMP procedure when done properly can look like a shaved head, full of hair follicles, giving the client that shadow of shaved/buzzed hair, restoring their hairline to frame their face, temples, sideburns and back around the neck.

17. AMAZING SOLUTION FOR BALD MEN

If you are Norwood 6 or Norwood 7 on the scale of baldness, you are not a good candidate for a hair transplant. Your hair loss has progressed too far and you don’t have enough donor area to create a full, thick hair coverage over a full top of your head and hairline. Don’t stress, SMP is a perfect solution for you. Most of our clients almost gave up on the idea of their hairline / density restoration, until they found us and learned about the SMP process. People still judge others by the way they look. Everyone wants to look better, younger, sexier and many men and women search for different solutions to help with that. SMP will make you look younger and feel better as it is a trusted procedure by many around the world.

18. SMP IS GETTING VERY POPULAR.
