For men and women, regardless of hair type, who are beginning to notice that their hair is thinning or who are concerned about the appearance of additional thinning beginning to become noticeable after a previous hair transplant surgical procedure, Scalp Micropigmentation can be an effective way to enhance and create the appearance of more dense, fuller hair in areas of noticeable scalp hair thinning.
SMP can also be effectively used in masking or eliminating the appearance of scarring in the donor area of a previous FUT “strip method” hair transplant, where you now want to have a shorter, more modern hair style.
Is “SMP” Just Another Name For a “Scalp Tattoo?”
There is an enormous amount of confusion about the difference between “scalp tattoos” and genuine scalp micropigmentation. Because of its highly specialized technology, SMP can effectively offer the appearance of thicker, more dense hair in areas where thinning has occurred. It can also be used to effectively camouflage old hair transplant scars for individuals wishing to wear today’s modern shorter hair styles.
What is the Difference Between Scalp Micropigmentation and Scalp Tattoos?
By replicating the appearance of natural, random hair follicles – matched to your own hair color and shading – SMP is an ideal hair loss option for:
- Men and women who want the appearance of more hair density in specific areas
- Individuals who shave their heads, but who are looking for a more pronounced hairline
- Men and women suffering from various forms and degrees of alopecia
- Individuals seeing to mask or hide scarring as a result of previous hair transplant surgery, trauma, or burns
- Individuals with minor hair loss who are not yet candidates for hair transplant surgery
