“PERMANENT SOLUTIONS FOR A LIFETIME OF BEAUTY”
SMP and tattoos are often confused because of their similarity, they both are performed using a handheld machine with a microneedle and they implant pigment underneath the skin’s outer layer. However, the most important difference is the depth in the ink’s implantation, SMP implants the pigment in the upper level of the Dermis while tattoos go deeper into the second Dermis layer. Another important factor is with SMP only pigments made out of natural ingredients are used for a better outcome on the client.
Both women and men struggle with hair loss. Scalp Micropigmentation is a permanent cosmetic procedure that uses tattoo techniques to create the illusion of hair follicles, bringing and undetectable density to the scalp.
This can be used to cover/blend, hair transplant scars, alopecia, thinning hair and male pattern baldness.
You see results immediately with SMP. Although you’ll need a few procedures before it looks just as you want it to. The first session is done a bit more conservative, the second session is required 2 weeks after and this brings in the density and WOW factor. Depending on the hair loss, a third session may be required 4-6 weeks after the second session..
SMP for Men
For many men, hair loss is an inevitable part of the aging process. While some are able to embrace their baldness, others may feel self-conscious about their appearance. For those seeking a solution to their hair loss, scalp micropigmentation offers a number of benefits. This cosmetic procedure involves depositing pigment into the scalp to create the appearance of a fuller head of hair. Unlike hair transplants, scalp micropigmentation is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require surgery or downtime. In addition, it can be customized to each individual’s desired look. For those who want to keep their hair short, scalp micropigmentation can give the illusion of a closely cropped hairstyle. For those who want to maintain a longer style, the pigment can be blended to match the natural color and density of the existing hair. Scalp micropigmentation is an effective solution for men who are looking for a non-invasive way to improve their appearance and boost their confidence.
SMP for Women
For many women, the process of dealing with hair loss can be emotionally and physically devastating. Not only can hair loss affect a woman’s self-confidence, but it can also lead to feelings of anxiety and depression. In addition, traditional treatments for hair loss, such as hair transplants, can be expensive and invasive. Scalp micropigmentation is a newer treatment that offers many benefits for women suffering from hair loss. Unlike hair transplants, scalp micropigmentation is a non-invasive procedure that does not require any surgery. In addition, it is much less expensive than traditional hair loss treatments. And perhaps most importantly, it can provide women with the appearance of a full head of hair. For women struggling with hair loss, scalp micropigmentation can be a life-changing treatment.
If you’ve been considering scalp micropigmentation (SMP), you probably have a lot of questions. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about SMP, along with brief answers.
Is it Permanent?
Fading: Just like traditional tattoos, the pigment will fade over time. To avoid premature fading, we recommend that you use sunscreen and avoid prolonged periods of exposure to the sun. If you need to be exposed to the sun for a long time, wear a hat if possible. Doing so will not only preserve you SMP but it will also protect your skin from sunburns.
Is it a Tattoo?
What’s the difference between a Tattoo and SMP?
Human skin has three layers: the epidermis, the dermis and the hypodermis. The dermis is the outer layer. It’s the layer you wash in the shower and the one that produces flakes from dry skin. The epidermis is the second layer of skin and it can be up to up to 4 millimeters thick. It’s this layer that will absorb the pigment during a tattoo or SMP procedure.
During a regular tattoo session, the tattoo machine is set to penetrate the epidermis all the way into the dermis to a depth of up to 3 ½ millimeters. The needles used in a tattoo are very thick and carry a lot of pigment into the skin.
During SMP, the dermis is penetrated to a depth of ¼ millimeter to ½ millimeter. The needles we use are extremely fine medical-grade needles designed to leave a very small.
