What Is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation (also known as hair tattoo) is a non-surgical treatment that uses micro-needles to deposit pigmentation into your scalp. This micropigmentation creates an illusion of a close shaved head or a buzz-cut, fills receding hairline, covers scar tissue, and makes your head look fuller. If you are going bald and feel that your hairline is receding or your hair has started thinning, we can restore your look of fuller hair.

How Does Scalp Micropigmentation Work?

Unlike hair transplantation, Scalp Micropigmentation is a completely non-surgical procedure. Your physician will use tiny needles to perforate your scalp and inject ink into your skin. This ink will then leave tiny pigmentation on your scalp giving an illusion of short hair or buzz-cut. A complete SMP procedure takes up to 3 or 4 sessions. The detail of these sessions is mentioned below.

First Session

During your first session, the physician determines your hairline according to your preference. It can be considered as a rough sketch to give you an idea about your look. Light colored pigmentation is used during the first session. This session takes the longest as your baseline is created. The second session is carried out after a week. During this time, your scalp heals from the perforations and the pigmentation also fades slightly. This gives the physician a rough idea of your fading rate. As your scalp heals itself, you also need to take care of your skin. Cautionary measures like avoiding sunlight and shower for several days can be taken.

Second Session

The second session follows one week after the first session. During your second session, more pigmentation is added and density is also added. Pigments with different shades are used. The colors are chosen according to your natural hair color in order to achieve a more natural look. hairline is adjusted and depth is created. The second session takes less time than the first session.

Third Session

It is carried a week after the second session. Usually the process is completed after the third session, but if you want to make some adjustments, you can ask
