What is SMP?
Scalp micropigmentation is an advanced micropigmentation technique that addresses thinning hair in both men and women. Often referred to as hair follicle simulation, scalp micropigmentation involves the depositing of thousands of tiny pigment ‘dots’ implanted superficially into the scalp skin to replicate the appearance of shaven hair.
For men, this technique is used to recreate a closely cropped look that appears as a style choice, rather than the appearance of going bald. Depending on the level of hair loss, it is sometimes possible for the client to maintain their existing hair length, although many choose to shave and use the simulated look to its fullest potential.
In women, or men who wish to keep their hair longer, scalp micropigmentation reduces the contrast between the hair and the scalp to create a thicker, fuller look of hair. This option is suitable for clients who still have hair remaining and do not wish to cut their hair short.
