Scalp Micropigmentation is a cosmetic technique involving the method of tattooing, which addresses unsightly hair and scalp conditions that may develop due to aging. Millions of people all around the world suffer from hair loss and premature balding. Even urban women see thinner hair density on their heads at an early age helps these people cover up these conditions.
How is it done?
SMP involves injecting a pigment into the first few layers of skin on your scalp. It mimics the presence of hair follicles and creates the illusion of having a buzzed haircut, or a recently shaved head. The process is not surgical and it does not require the use of anesthetics or any other drugs.
The natural hairline, hair density and color are first understood so that the treatment would look as natural as possible. The procedure of injecting the pigment is delicate and it requires someone with specialized experience to judge the proper thickness of needle to use and to decide the correct angle of penetration.
How is it different from getting a tattoo?
A tattoo traditionally requires a much thicker needle and the pigment is injected deeper into the skin. The piercing is generally much more painful and it is not uncommon for the equipment to draw blood out of the skin. The ink which is used for tattoos fade away faster, but the ones used for SMP retains its color for a much longer time.
How are the results?
The results of getting a SMP treatment are seen immediately. The head would look like it is full of hair follicles, which will make it look like you have recently shaved it. For people who use it to treat bald spots and thin hair, it looks like the density of hair has dramatically increased.
SMP makes a great non-surgical alternative to treating hair-loss and other such scalp problems. The effects of the treatment last for decades, if it is done properly. There are some post-procedural after care steps, which you need to take so that the ink lasts for long. It is also okay to have multiple SMP treatments over a period of time so as to simulate a slowly receding hairline or changing hair color.
