Scalp MicroPigmentation is a sophisticated technique that mimics or simulates the look of shaved or stubble hair. Being able to take an individual from a high Norwood hair loss stage to the look of a full head of shaved hair takes a great deal of skill.
Building up the hair line to take into consideration the person’s facial features and bone structure requires an understanding of anatomy and artistic skill; every person is individual with different goals.
Hundreds of thousands of tiny points are made over the scalp, gradually building up the tone, either on an area of naked skin or to blend with any native hair. With the native hair shaved both blend together to give the illusion of a full shaved head of hair with total coverage from hair line to crown with an even look of density.
SMP, also known as MSP gives immediate results, and being able to return to your normal routine straight away; further sessions will be performed over the coming weeks and months to enhance the result, and if required refine details, such as hair line placement or design, with long lasting results, dependent on the pigmentation used.
As this refined technique does not rely on a person’s own donor hair it is suitable not only for typical male pattern baldness but other causes of hair loss, suffered by men and woman alike. Conditions that are not suitable to be treated by surgical hair restoration options can be successfully treated with MSP.
Scalp MicroPigmentation can give hope to sufferers of hair loss conditions such as alopecia areata or the more severe alopecia universalis, covering the areas of hair loss to give a uniform coverage and look of shaved hair; and does nothing to hinder the natural regrowth of the individual’s hair.
The variants in the pigmentation will determine how natural a result is achieved; discolouration or tone bleeding can occur either with inferior tones or poor application of the treatment. So, as not all SMP is the same research is vital to ensure only the highest quality pigments are used and the technical staff are highly trained and experienced in performing this technically and artistically demanding technique.
