Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)
Scalp Micropigmentation is a process where a needle is used to deposit pigment in the form of tiny dots into the upper layers of the skin. The dots give the appearance of hair follicles when the head has been shaved so that when completed the dots blend in with what existing hair is remaining to give the illusion of a full head of shaven hair. This treatment is also suitable for those with thinning hair to give the illusion of more density.
Benefits of SMP:
- Creates the appearance of thicker hair
- Custom designed to suit each individuals hair and neck line
- Can help to camouflage scars
- Can help to camouflage pattern baldness
- Can help with those suffering from Alopecia or medical treatments
- Immediate visible results
- An alternative to hair transplants
