Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP) is non-surgical, hassle-free and cost-effective hair loss solution that creates the look of a shaven head or short hairs by strategically injecting pigments in the dermal layer of the scalp skin. Wondering what exactly is this SMP technique for hair loss? Stop wondering, as you have come to the right place. Here you will get to know what SMP technique is, how it works and what are its pros and cons.
SMP (Scalp MicroPigmentation) is an effective cosmetic hair loss solution for people suffering from androgenic alopecia or any other type of alopecia that may have resulted in permanent hair loss. The procedure does not involve any surgery, skin cutting and stitching or scarring. No, it does not involve hairpieces either. It is a highly advanced form of cosmetic pigmentation in which specialized pigments are applied directly into the dermal layer of the skin to replicate the natural appearance of real micro hairs.
The procedure involves administering highly specialized pigments into the scalp skin using a multitude of different needle sizes to create the appearance of a fuller head of shaven hairs. It is a highly advanced form of cosmetic pigmentation in which tested pigments are injected into the scalp skin at varying penetration depths and angles to replicate a natural, more youthful head of hair. A variety of different shades of pigments is used to achieve perfect blend of shades that exactly match the existing hair on the patient’s head. Patient’s skin tone is carefully observed before selecting a well blended pigment to create the simulation of natural looking hair follicles and micro hairs.
There is literally no special preparation required for SMP treatment. All that you may be asked to do is, come to the clinic with a freshly washed scalp. Also avoid bringing any valuables to the clinic.
The pigment is usually administered over 2-3 sessions spaced , but this can vary from person to person depending upon the extent of baldness, size of the area that needs to be covered and the desired hair density. SMP technique uses specially designed pigments and not the usual tattoo ink. This is why SMP pigments maintain their definition and do not spread out or fade out over time.
SMP technique for hair loss is a simple procedure that does not involve a long list of post-op instructions. Simple things that you must consider after the treatment include:
Scalp MicroPigmentation has helped thousands of men all across the world to achieve youthful appearance and their desired hair patterns. It provides a virtually non-invasive solution for men with receded hairline, significant hair thinning, partial or complete baldness or those with scalp scars, including the one resulting from strip method transplant. The technique can:
The biggest advantage of SMP or hair tattoo is that its results are permanent yet flexible. You get exactly the shape and density of hairline that you want, but you can also refresh the treatment later on in life as your circumstances, preferences or extent of hair loss changes. And if for some reason, you really don’t like the replicated hairline, you can always get rid of the pigment permanently, mostly through a single laser session.
While Scalp MicroPigmentation / shaved head tattoo may sound more appealing and lucrative, hair transplant still remains the best hair loss solution. SMP only replicates a shaven head of hair and is not helpful for those who wish to wear long hair. After all it is a fake head covering attempt, which does not give you original hair. If you really want to enjoy the feel of real hair and experiment with different hairstyles, a Hair Transplant Surgery may be worth considering.

"I was really pleased with my experience at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery. I had to cancel the first date I booked, because of my daughter, but when I called them the next day, they fit us in that afternoon, which was really good. My mum and I went to a free consultation for Laser Assisted Liposuction, and it went very well. We were really impressed with the doctor, Dr. Juan Tadeo Krogulec - he was lovely. He spent as long as we needed with us, and didn't rush us. He was really thorough and not only did he answer all of our questions, he answered others we hadn't even thought of asking! I think that when the time comes for treatment we'll probably be going with them.".
I am very satisfied with my results. I strongly recommend this clinic for every one who wants great result and its very cheap to :). Dr. Cagtay and his team are very professional and do take care of their patients.".
