Benefits of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)

Updated: Aug 31, 2023

Scalp Micropigmentation SMP clients

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a permanent solution for individuals with thinning hair, receding hairlines, baldness or unattractive scars left by hair transplants.

People with balding or thinning hair will often desperately explore any remedies offered in the marketplace, ranging from hair transplants to topical tonics and sprays, to temporary fixtures such as wigs.

Each of these solutions has their disadvantages:

  • Hair restoration tonics, sprays, shampoos and other options promising magical hair re-growth can be ineffective and even harmful.

  • Hair transplants are high maintenance. Sometimes procedures work, sometimes they don’t, and often they don’t work quite the way you thought they would.

  • Wigs or hairpieces are labor-intensive.

Scalp micropigmentation, on the other hand, is a permanent, low maintenance and high-value procedure with many amazing benefits, including the following:

1. IT’s Different, with Real Results

Scalp Micropigmentation is a unique solution to baldness because it creates the illusion of normal, short shaved hair growth on the scalp that looks like a real buzz cut.

Although it does not cause hair to grow back naturally, it effectively improves the appearance of bald heads by creating the appearance of a “five o’clock shadow” on your head. This mimics the close cut “shaved” look that is so popular among men today.

If you have hair with thinning areas on your scalp, the pigmentation will make your hair look fuller and more filled-in.

The pigments are matched to each individual client’s existing hair color and skin tone, and are applied in the direction of the natural hair growth to achieve the most realistic look possible.

2. It’s Affordable

Scalp micropigmentation is affordable compared to other products on the market because:

  • it is a permanent solution to hair loss,

  • you don’t waste money on endless and ineffective tonics, shampoos or constant medications,

  • it costs a fraction of the price of hair transplants,

  • it requires no expensive post-procedural medications or care products, and maintenance is minimal.

3. It’s Safe
  • The Scalp Micropigmentation treatment does not use any chemicals, which means it has no side effects.

  • It is non-invasive and no incisions are made, so there is minimal risk of infection.

  • It is pain-free, because a local anesthetic is used to prevent discomfort.

4. It’s FAST

Compared to other types of hair loss treatments that take months, SMP is fast and simple and can be completed in just a couple of sessions, taking only a few hours to achieve the perfect results.

Unlike invasive hair transplant procedures that require lengthy healing periods, Scalp Micropigmentation is relatively painless and no recovery time is needed, so you will be up and about in virtually no time. The process does not cause scarring and no medication is necessary.

5. It Heals Quickly

Scalp micropigmentation is a non-invasive procedure, so that healing time is limited to only a few days. It requires no dressings or stitches, and a simple after care plan in the weeks following the procedure will ensure the treated area heals properly.

6. It’s Low Maintenance

There will be no need for expensive hair products or styling after your Scalp Micropigmentation experience. Simply shave where there is still hair growth, wash the pigmented area and use a bit of hair wax or oil to add shine if desired.

SMP is a permanent solution to baldness, but to keep it looking its best follow up appointments may be recommended every 5 to 10 years.

7. You Look Younger

The perception is that only older men get bald. However, young people also lose their hair for various reasons. This can have an effect on their self-confidence.

In recent years it has become fashionable for men to shave their heads completely. Just take a look at the pics of the many celebrities who have made going bald a fashion statement, such as Bruce Willis, Patrick Stewart, Andre Agassi, Billy Zane, Kobe Bryant and many others.

Scalp Micropigmentation gives you that natural stubble shaved look that will make you look and feel young again.

8. It’s Long Lasting

Scalp Micropigmentation is long lasting and does not wash off. Once the procedure is completed you won’t need any follow-ups; or any extra medications or treatments.

The pigmentation fades very subtly and gradually over many years and can be retouched eventually – if and when needed. It can also be updated to match changing styles, or even to add new colors.

9. It Hides Imperfections

Apart from receding hairlines and baldness, Scalp Micropigmentation also helps to mask imperfections or scars from past injuries or hair transplant procedures.

10. It restores self-confidence

Thinning hair or hair loss in western society is linked with middle age and growing old, even though hair loss can happen at any age.

So many wasted hours and money is spent on trying to hide thinning hair and baldness – whether you try to hide it with hats, toupees, wigs, hair transplants, comb-overs, or special dyes.

In today’s competitive world where appearance is so important, the problem of baldness affects how you see yourself. It is always somewhere at the back of your mind, preventing you from getting on with your life and being who you want to be.

Scalp Micropigmentation will make you feel attractive again, boosting your self-confidence and self-esteem. This in turn will allow you to live up to their full potential.

We have many heart-warming anecdotes and testimonials about how it has enhanced relationships, career and daily lives .

11. It’s Non-invasive

SMP is like acupuncture for the scalp, using tiny needles on the skin. The process is non-invasive and does not require any incisions.

12. It works for everybody

Scalp Micro Pigmentation is what it says it is – there are no false promises or expectations – and anyone can enjoy the benefits. It will be customised to each individual and their specific needs. It takes your hair and skin colour into consideration and it works with all genders and ethnicities.

SMP will work for you!
