Scalp Micropigmentation – The Perfect Non-Surgical Treatment for Fuller Hair

Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp micro-pigmentation is a highly-effective treatment that can help your hair appear denser. This procedure is non-invasive and lasts for many years, making it a popular option amongst people suffering from hair loss, hair thinning, or balding. In a sense, it is very similar to microblading, with the difference being that the doctor will use an electrical device rather than a manual blade. This is because the skin on your scalp is thicker than the skin of your eyebrows.

What is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)?

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure where small layered dots of pigment are applied to the patient’s scalp. SMP can be a great choice for creating the appearance of a closely shaved head, adding density to thinning hair, or camouflaging scars or alopecia. The results of an SMP procedure last for between three to five years when proper care and maintenance is conducted post-treatment. Though nearly everyone can undergo an SMP procedure, it is especially suitable for:

  • Cancer patients
  • Those experiencing baldness, hair loss, or hair thinning
  • Those who have scars from a FUT hair transplantation
  • Those with wounds on the scalp Those with sparse hair that want to keep long hair
  • Those who can’t undergo a hair transplant operation due to advanced hair loss

Scalp Micropigmentation The Process of Undergoing a Scalp Micropigmentation Treatment

The whole idea behind SMP treatments is to mimic the appearance of hair follicles. During your scalp micropigmentation procedure, you have two options. The first one is to get your head fully shaven. The second option is to keep your hair as it is. If you choose the former option, the doctor will shave your head and apply small pigment spots onto the scalp. This will result in a two-dimensional appearance that resembles a freshly shaved head. If you choose to preserve your hair, the process will be very similar, except the doctor will apply small pigments to give your hair a fuller and denser appearance. The latter option is suitable if you have long hair that you want to keep. The whole procedure is painless and often takes a few sessions, each lasting a few hours (it will depend on your individual case).

Things to Keep in Mind About Your SMP Treatment

There are several things Dr. Resul Yaman would like you to keep in consideration before and after your scalp micro pigmentation treatment.

  • Take a shower before each SMP treatment, and do not wash your hair for four days after each treatment. During that time, you should also avoid sweating excessively
  • Each hair pigmentation session may take between 4 and 5 hours
  • The number of sessions you’ll need will vary on your individual case
  • You will undergo an SMP treatment every few weeks
  • You are not a suitable candidate for an SMP treatment if you suffer from psoriasis, acne, or similar skin conditions on your scalp
  • After your last SMP session, you should not go to damp places such as the sea, pool, or sauna for 28 days. You should also avoid exposing your scalp to direct sunlight for 28 days.
  • You should start moisturizing the treated area four days post-treatment.

The above are just some of the things you need to keep in mind about your procedure. The doctor will walk you through everything you need to know on the day of your appointment. Feel free to browse through the many hair transplant before and after pictures that we’ve taken of our patients.
