Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a tattooing technique used to replicate hair follicles on the scalp, face, and hairline. It is a non-invasive and effective solution for hair loss, scar coverage, thinning hair, baldness, and Alopecia. Both men and women can benefit from SMP, as it creates the appearance of a full head of hair.

The treatment involves the use of pigment and specialised needles to create fine strokes on the skin. Normal activities can usually be resumed following the treatment, but aftercare guidelines must be followed.

Amanda Heywood is an experienced SMP practitioner who uses high-quality materials, such as AnteAge Growth Factor, to stimulate dormant hair growth and promote stem cell production.

During an initial consultation, we will discuss the SMP procedure, suitable hair lines for your age, your suitability for the treatment, and your expectations. The procedure is typically spread over a minimum of four sessions, with a top-up required every 3-5 years.

Is Scalp Micropigmentation worth it?

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) can be worth it for individuals seeking a non-surgical solution to hair loss or thinning hair. This semi-permanent treatment creates the appearance of hair follicles through tattooing, resulting in a fuller, natural-looking hairline. Satisfaction will vary based on personal preferences. To determine if SMP is worth it for you, consider factors such as your hair loss pattern, desired outcome, and the cost of the procedure.

What are the disadvantages of Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a cosmetic procedure that involves tattooing the scalp to create the illusion of hair. While it can be an effective solution for hair loss, some disadvantages exist. These include the potential for allergic reactions or infections, the need for touch-up sessions, and the possibility of fading or discolouration over time. SMP is a semi-permanent solution, which means that it may need to be redone every few years to maintain its appearance.

How painful is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves the use of small, specialised needles to deposit pigment into the scalp. This creates the appearance of hair follicles or adds density to thinning hair.

The pain experienced during SMP can vary from person to person, as individual pain thresholds differ. Some people describe the sensation as mild discomfort or a tingling feeling, while others may experience moderate pain. Topical numbing creams or local anaesthetics are often applied before the procedure to minimise discomfort.

While SMP can cause some mild discomfort, most clients find the procedure tolerable, compared to more invasive hair restoration procedures such as hair transplants.

Is Scalp Micropigmentation just a tattoo?

Yes, Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a form of tattooing. It is a non-surgical procedure where natural pigments are applied at the epidermal level of the scalp to replicate the appearance of real hair follicles or strands. The primary goal of SMP is to create the illusion of a fuller head of hair, particularly for those experiencing hair loss, thinning hair, or scars from hair transplantation.

Does hair grow after Scalp Micropigmentation?

Yes, hair continues to grow after Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP). SMP does not affect the natural growth of existing hair, as it only involves the application of pigments to the skin’s surface, not the hair follicles. Hair growth is determined by the health and condition of the hair follicles, which are located below the skin’s surface.

Keep in mind that SMP will not stimulate new hair growth or reverse hair loss. It provides the illusion of a fuller head of hair by camouflaging the areas with thinning or no hair.

What is the success rate of Scalp Micropigmentation?

The success rate of Scalp Micropigmentation is generally high, with all of our clients reporting satisfaction with their results. However, individual experiences may vary based on practitioner skill, client expectations, and aftercare.

How realistic is Scalp Micropigmentation?

It involves depositing tiny pigment particles into the scalp to create the appearance of hair follicles, giving the illusion of a fuller, natural looking head of hair. Skilled practitioners can achieve impressive results by matching the pigment colour and hairline design to the individual’s needs, making SMP a convincing solution for hair loss concerns.
