Scalp Micropigmentation: How It’s Done and Expected Results

  • Post published:July 20, 2022

Scalp micropigmentation is making waves in the hair restoration industry. More men are getting hair tattoos and many of them are happy with the results. With SMP available to virtually everyone, your options for non-surgical hair restoration have once again expanded. 

If you’re considering getting a scalp micropigmentation treatment, this article will give you essential information about the procedure.

What Is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)?

Scalp micropigmentation or SMP is a hair restoration procedure that can be used to create the appearance of a full head of short, buzzed hair. Patients can also get SMP to create a fuller look in areas where hair thinning is observed or hide scars resulting from a hair transplant procedure.

This procedure is an excellent alternative to surgical hair restoration such as FUE and FUT. Unlike hair transplantation, SMP doesn’t require a long recovery time and can be done even when the patient is completely bald. This helps bald patients look like they have a stylish buzz cut. 

How Is SMP Done?

SMP is very similar to getting a tattoo. It involves using a unique device to add thousands of tiny, layered dots that mimic the appearance of natural hair follicles. When performed by a skilled professional like our technicians, the results of SMP can look both impressive and surprisingly natural. 

At AHead Ink, we use the same equipment and techniques as Milena Lardi, a well-known pioneer and leader in the field of scalp micropigmentation and permanent cosmetics. 

What Are the Expected Results of SMP?

Our results speak for themselves. Ahead Ink offers the most natural hair loss solution for pattern baldness, thinning hair, and hair transplant scars. We effectively replicate tiny hair follicles to make you look amazing as if you never had any SMP work done. 

With SMP, we can easily give you the look of a buzz cut or short hair stubble. After your SMP treatment, you’ll enjoy the results right away. 

Is There Any Downtime? 

Scalp micropigmentation is a relatively painless procedure with a significantly shorter recovery time than hair transplantation. It usually takes seven to 10 days for the scalp to heal after a hair tattooing procedure, after which results are visible. Our technicians may also apply some topical numbing cream to avoid any discomfort. 

Who are Good Candidates for SMP? 

SMP is great for anyone suffering from hair loss or thinning hair. It’s an excellent option if you’re looking to address hair loss but don’t want to commit to a hair transplant procedure. Generally, scalp micropigmentation is great for people who want to keep their heads shaved or hair closely cut.
