Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)
Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) offers a tattoo-based, non-medical “cover-up” that effectively hides unsightly conditions on the scalp and creates the illusion of thicker hair. It is also very effective in camouflaging scars. Scalp micropigmentation functions as a semi-permanent concealer, and the targeted artistic effect is similar to the visual effect of a stippled painting as dots are created between the pores of a balding scalp. The process begins by inserting a micro droplet of pigment through the skin and into the upper dermis, using a standard tattoo instrument. Our clinic can perform SMP for people with wide or obvious scars from donor strip harvesting techniques and selective area of thinning hair.
