Each stroke of scalp micropigmentation is a blend of artistry and science and that’s our expertise at Ahead Ink. 

If the buzzing streets of New York and New Jersey were ever to have a Mecca for scalp micropigmentation, Ahead Ink would undoubtedly be that spot. At Ahead Ink, we specialize in providing modern, highly refined SMP treatments that guarantee natural-looking results every time. For all things scalp micropigmentation in NYC and NJ, Ahead Ink is the place to go. 

What Is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation or SMP is a non-surgical treatment that uses a specialized device to implant pigment into the scalp with precision, mimicking the appearance of hair follicles. The end result? A fuller, more youthful head of hair, minus the invasive procedures and long recovery times. 

Our SMP Treatments at Ahead Ink – What We Offer

From restoring your hairline to concealing hair transplant scars, Ahead Ink provides a full range of SMP services. 

1. Hair Restoration

Whether you’re dealing with thinning or complete baldness, our SMP artists can strategically place micro-dots of pigment to replicate the appearance of hair follicles, instantly delivering the illusion of denser hair. The results are immediate, with no downtime. Our highly refined techniques ensure a natural blend with existing hair and a flawless finish every time. 

2. Beard Micropigmentation

Scalp micropigmentation to the beard at Ahead Ink allows for precision in sculpting a fuller beard or filling in gaps. If you desire a thicker beard without the wait, this is the ideal solution. Because we’ve done this so many times, every artificial follicle perfectly mirrors your natural beard patterns, guaranteeing an authentic and rejuvenated appearance.

3. Scar Camouflage

Sometimes, men come to our clinic to have their hair transplant scar concealed. Using advanced SMP techniques to seamlessly blend scars on the scalp with the surrounding hair, we are able to hide these scars like they weren’t even there. The treatment not only camouflages the scars but pays acute attention to replicating natural hair growth patterns. This attention to detail ensures scars are not just hidden but harmoniously integrated into the overall hair structure.

4. SMP Repair/Removal

If previous SMP treatments didn’t hit the mark, we will provide you with a lifeline. By offering corrective procedures to adjust or entirely remove prior work, you can trust in the clinic’s ability to refine and enhance its look. With updated techniques and our team’s expertise, each session ensures a renewed and satisfying appearance.

What Results Can I Expect?

Post-treatment, you’ll witness a fuller hairline, denser beard, or a less noticeable scar, depending on the service. The beauty of SMP is its natural look, ensuring that only you and your technician know of the artistry behind the scenes.

As for post-treatment healing, the process is straightforward and relatively swift. The scalp may display slight redness immediately after the procedure, but this typically subsides within 24-48 hours. While SMP is non-invasive and doesn’t deeply wound the skin, it’s important to follow proper aftercare to maintain the longevity and vibrancy of the treatment.

SMP Post-Treatment Care Recommendations

1. Avoid Direct Sun Exposure: For the first week after treatment, it’s crucial to shield the treated area from direct sunlight. After the initial week, consider using a hat if you’ll be out in the sun for extended periods, and gradually reintroduce your scalp to sunlight. As a long-term practice, using sunscreen can help maintain the pigment’s sharpness.

2. Keep the Area Clean and Moisturized: Refrain from washing the treated area for the first 48 hours. After this period, gently clean the scalp with water. Avoid harsh shampoos for the first week and regularly moisturize the scalp with an unscented lotion. This helps prevent excessive dryness and flaking.

3. No Rigorous Activities: It’s recommended to avoid heavy sweating and rigorous exercises for at least 4-5 days post-treatment. This ensures the pigments remain undisturbed and can settle properly.

4. Avoid Swimming: Chlorinated water can adversely affect the settling pigment. So it’s best to steer clear of swimming pools for at least a week post-treatment.
