An Introduction to Scalp Micropigmentation

Those who are familiar with microblading will find it easy to understand the process of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP). Both follow the same principle of recreating the lost hair by using a brush like tool. The two methods use pigments implanted at the desired places like eyebrow or hairline, which a make-up artist does craftily to create an illusion of fuller brows or fuller hair.

On closer inspection of the process of AMP, you will discover that it is much more than just a hair tattoo. Considered a non-surgical treatment, the process of SMP consists of applying natural pigments within the upper layer of the scalp skin known as the dermal layer. It helps to create the looks of a natural shaved head, which somewhat makes up for the absence of hair that can make people look bald. Furthermore, the smudge-free hair solution is a permanent remedy for hair loss as it lasts for years. In addition, it enhances the self-esteem of the person undergoing the process as they can present a new image about the way they look.

 Goal of SMP

Most hair replacement therapies involve expensive and time-consuming surgical procedures. SMP offers a cost-effective and smarter solution to the hair loss problem. The process consists of a makeup artist who can deftly recreate the illusion of tiny hair across the head like fresh sprouts surfacing from sown seeds.  By using different hues of black pigment and applying it skillfully to form layered dots, the process helps to create the illusion of a shadow on your scalp. In addition, the specialty of the style known as pointillism can create a natural-looking definition as well as depth.

The artist's skill ensures that the dots resemble the hair follicles and look completely natural while blending with your complexion seamlessly. SMP can address hair loss issues arising from a variety of conditions like alopecia, chemotherapy treatment, male and female pattern baldness, and thinning hair.

Guidelines for the process

The process of SMP might not cause pain but can cause discomfort to varying extent. Depending on individuals' level of pain tolerance, some may feel somewhat uneasy when the artist applies a topical numbing agent to the scalp.

Choose a skilled SMP artist with a proven track record that raises the chances of better results. After the initial consultation, you should not only learn about the process but should also be able to set the right expectations.

Each process takes between 3-5 hours, and as you will not be able to wet your scalp for a few days after the treatment, you must have a shower before the commencement of the treatment. The number of treatments would depend on the amount of scalp area covered by the process. On average, at least 3-4 treatments are necessary to cover an area as small as a window's peak. The treatments take place a few weeks apart to allow complete healing of the prior treatment to ensure long-term retention of the pigments.
