Scalp micropigmentation, also known as SMP, is a form of tattooing that is done on the scalp to restore the appearance of a full head of hair. This permanent method for addressing hair loss can help women in Miami regain their self confidence due to any number of common conditions that have resulted in hair thinning or total loss of hair follicles.
Now with scalp micropigmentation, women and men both have a natural-looking solution for battling hair loss. This method is proven to be more effective than other hair loss treatments including hair transplants and fillers.
What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp micropigmentation is a non-invasive cosmetic pigmentation performed on the dermal layer of your scalp. While similar to a traditional tattoo, SMP uses special organic pigment that is safe for human skin and appears completely natural as it simulates real hair follicles. Our clients are amazed by the results as they realize that SMP is an ideal choice for fighting against thinning hair and receding hairlines.
Scalp micropigmentation treatment can bring density to existing hair on the scalp to give it a fuller look. While men have the option of shaving their heads as a way to navigate through male pattern baldness, most women would prefer not to go completely bald to address their hair loss issues. The scalp micropigmentation procedure can help.
SMP hair loss treatment can help you feel more confident about your appearance.
How Does Scalp Micropigmentation Treatment Work?
The treatment process is pretty simple. After an initial consultation to assess the severity of your hair loss, we create the appearance of new hair by giving you what amounts to a hair tattoo. Our technician separates your existing hair in sections, identifying the thinning or balding areas of the scalp and applying the pigment with a special tool that uses tiny needles that etch the pigment into the dermis.
When the work is complete, the exposed portions of the scalp have now been colored in and the contrast between your scalp and your existing hair is all but eliminated, making it appear as if the hair is fuller and thicker and you haven’t lost any at all.
Before the application is performed, the pigment is carefully matched to your hair color and skin tone to ensure an entirely natural result.
The initial consultation will also provide us with a detailed overview of the areas on the scalp where hair is thinner or balding. Most women typically demonstrate hair loss around the top of the head. Scalp micropigmentation can eliminate the effects of thinning hair.
How Many Treatments are Necessary?
Most of our clients undergo three separate treatment sessions. Each session could take anywhere from 3 to 6 hours depending on the amount of work needed. The sessions are separated two weeks apart from one another and there’s no downtime, no recovery period, no need to change your daily routine.
Three sessions are often necessary due to the way the body reacts to the pigment. Human skin tends to reject some of the pigment that has been applied in previous sessions. We want you to reach the desired results and three treatments is enough to restore any pigment that is lost.
Just be sure to follow the recommended aftercare instructions carefully. They can help you protect the appearance of your scalp micropigmentation once the pigment has been applied.
Why Do Women Choose Scalp Micropigmentation?
Women who are dealing with the physical and emotional challenges of losing their hair in Miami have been relying on scalp micropigmentation for a variety of reasons. There are many benefits to using this effective and trusted method for hair restoration:
Most other hair loss treatments will have you returning for follow-up visits to monitor the progress of hair follicle growth and health. These appointments could run three to four times a year just to see if the work was successful. But scalp micropigmentation can last three years or more without any follow-up visits or check-ups. In some cases, a touch-up session might be required to freshen up the pigment in the event it has started to fade.
To help avoid fading, always protect the scalp from direct sunlight and use caution when washing your hair.
Safe and Non-Invasive
Some hair loss solutions use harsh chemicals, drugs, and surgical procedures to restore hair density and regrow follicles. But there’s no need to expose your scalp to these methods when micropigmentation implants the pigment across the surface area of your hair loss with nothing more than a tattoo needle and cleanser to disinfect the skin.
Surgery is not needed and you won’t be subjected to caustic chemicals or tonics that don’t work as fast as you hoped or maybe don’t work at all. The micropigmentation procedure doesn’t even break the surface of your scalp, instead, the needles blend the pigment against the tone of the skin, making for a more natural aesthetic.
Despite what you may have read or even assumed, scalp micropigmentation is not a painful procedure. Some very minor discomfort might be experienced in the first session, but by the second session most of our clients find they have grown used to the procedure and feel little to no discomfort at all.
We believe in getting what you paid for and with scalp micropigmentation you get an affordable hair loss treatment alternative that really works when it matters most. Since there is no surgery or expensive equipment needed to perform scalp micropigmentation, the cost is lower than other hair loss treatment choices out there.
You only pay for the treatment sessions that you need for the micropigmentation process. You don’t need to spend more money on office visits, post-op narcotics or antibiotics, no supplements, lotions, or tonics, and no skincare routines that are less convenient.
The micropigmentation procedure is always performed by highly-trained technicians who have the expertise and experience to give you proven results. These treatments bring density and thickness to the balding areas of the scalp, recreating the look and texture of real hair. Since the detail of the micropigmentation is specific, even scars and small imperfections in the hairline and the crown of the head can be concealed. No one will know you’ve had the procedure unless you bring attention to the work that’s been performed.
