Come in and introduce yourself!
What does Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) mean and how does it work?
Scalp Using a non-surgical technique, natural plant-based pigment deposits are implanted into the dermal layer of the scalp, creating a more natural appearance. The pigment deposits act as replicas of hair follicles, giving the impression of a full head of hair to the wearer. The 5 o'clock shadow appearance is available if you are entirely bald; and if your hair is thinning or you are dissatisfied with your hair restoration results and desire additional density, SMP is the procedure for you.
What is the number of treatments do I need to have better results
Scalp Micropigmentation is usually performed at a minimum of two sessions, with each session taking place one week apart. Because we are engaging with your skin which is the biggest organ on your body that will ensure that our process is successful, we expect some pigment to be rejected by your skin immediately after your initial treatment. We anticipate seeing considerable benefits after the first treatment, but following the second session, we expect to see more of a completion of the therapy. There is a potential of the third session between 1-3 months following the second treatment, during which we will apply the final touches to the results.
What is the duration of every treatment?
Each process lasted from 2-4 hours, and this will be mostly dependent on the amount of work involved. The first procedure is usually the most time-consuming since we are building the forehead and bringing in the basic layer of the hair. Each following treatment is normally shorter in duration, however, this might vary depending on how well earlier treatments were retained.
Who is in charge of determining how the hairline should be formed?
There is a range of criteria that influence which hairline is most appropriate for you. We customize your hairline to complement your unique characteristics in order to get the most genuine and suitable outcome possible. Our calculations also take into consideration your particular tastes, since there is a wide variety of alternatives for what might seem natural on any one individual.
After receiving the three treatments, what should I do now?
After you've followed the first aftercare recommendations, you may sit back as well as enjoy the benefits of the SMP therapy. We do provide a one-year warranty with our treatment programs, so if there is any thinning of the pigments, you can be certain that we will touch it up at no additional cost to you during that time. Afterward, we'll meet up again in a few years!
What do you mean, "a few years"? I'm not sure what this actually means
Normally, we anticipate our customers to need touch-ups during the first 5-8 years of service. Although this is a permanent operation that will last indefinitely, there is regular wear and strain on the skin's surface that induces it to lighten up over time as a result of normal wear and tear.
What are the recommendations for aftercare?
If you want to avoid excessive fading and any other types of contamination, it is essential that you follow our 4-day post-treatment guidelines. For the first four days, there is to be no touching, bathing, or cutting, and there is to be no exercising. You are permitted to wear a hat instantly following each treatment. If you plan on sleeping on it, don't be concerned about the pigment smudging or smearing on your pillows.
As a result, I won't have to take the day off work?
Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that is performed on the scalp which means that there is no interruption connected with it; all that is required is that you adhere to the aftercare instructions for four days. Many of our customers come in for medication and then return home the same day, returning to work the following morning.
After having completed the SMP treatment, is my SMP going to be noticeable to other people?
Because the pigments are newly deposited, the pigments will seem bolder immediately after the initial treatment. Overnight, you will see a softening and settling of the colors on your skin. When it comes to the color, it will fade within 48-72 hours. The degree of redness is determined by the skin's sensitivity, although more or less all customers will notice a substantial reduction in redness 48 hours following their first treatment. Once the first settling phase is complete, your treatment will seem perfectly natural.
Is the SMP treatment going to be painful?
The majority of customers who had SMP have said that the pain is not as great as that of a regular tattoo. Your pain tolerance may vary from client to client, but your health and safety are our top priorities because our professionals will make certain that the procedure runs as smoothly as possible.
Is it necessary for me to maintain my shaven appearance?
We will evaluate your hair loss during the session or via a web-based evaluation. Once we have a better knowledge of the kind of hair loss you are experiencing, we can develop a treatment plan that includes the style and appearance we propose that would be most effective with our SMP method.
The quantity of covering we have provided on the top of your head with SMP necessitates that clients with Norwood 6-7 hair loss have their hair shaved to preserve their appearance. It will become more noticeable as your hair on the back and sides continues to grow since there is a distinct difference in color between your hair and the SMP as time goes on. As a final result, we are mimicking hair follicles with pigmentation, which will never develop or produce a 3D texture, and this technique is considered permanent cosmetic surgery.
Filler treatments are defined as those that increase the density of an existing hairline and/or the density of the crown. If you are some of those people who still have a remaining portion of hair surrounding the treatment region, this will let our team blend the SMP with the surrounding hair because they are great candidates for filler procedures.
Do you also provide scar hiding services?
Yes! The treatment of male pattern baldness with scalp micropigmentation is not the only use for this procedure. It may also be used to cover up scars from past operations or injuries, among other things. SMP may be used to cover scars after both FUE and FUT transplantation.
Before undergoing SMP treatment, is trimming my hair a requirement?
If we are doing a filler treatment or scar concealing, we normally ask our customers to arrive with their hair at the shortest length they want to retain, unless otherwise asked. But, if you are one of those who belong to the 6 or 7 hair loss category, then you would need to shave your head prior to coming in for treatment and keep it at that length during the treatment process.
What can I do to ensure that my SMP will maintain its good condition?
We will provide recommendations for goods to utilize in order to keep your treatment in good condition. Please see the link to our product suggestion page for further information.
Will continuing to shave my head have an impact on the treatment?
You may shave and wash your hair on a daily basis; the treatment will not be affected since it is located in the epidermal layer of your skin. In fact, the vast majority of our customers who have this surgery shave on a daily basis!
In protecting my SMP against the sun, what can be the best way to do it?
If the pigments are exposed to too much direct sunlight, they might become weak, and over time, you will be causing damage to both the treatment and your scalp. Always wear sunscreen or a hat anytime you're going out and anticipate being in direct sunshine for more than an hour, regardless of the season.
How much does it set you back?
The cost of SMP varies from case to case and is determined by the extent of hair loss and the quantity of treatment required, so for the first two treatments, this will be done one week apart from each session with the option of a third treatment scheduled 1-3 months after the second. Scar concealing treatments cost between $800 and $1000 each treatment. The cost of treating class 2-4 hair loss ranges from $2400 to $3400. The cost of class 5-7 hair loss ranges from $3400 to $4200. The cost of 2-3 treatments on the top of the scalp with scar concealing varies from $4200 to $5200.
When will payments for the SMP procedures fall due?
For you to reserve your treatment dates with us, we need a $400 booking deposit. An appointment usually requires a waiting period of 8 weeks in most cases. Afterward, we divided the money equally across the first two therapies, and if you are short out of the case, we also provide loans for our customers.
