What is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)?

Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-invasive procedure that doesn't necessitate surgery, downtime, or a recovery period. By injecting organic, plant-based pigment into the dermal layer of the scalp, it aims to mimic the natural look of a full head of hair.

For those facing baldness, receding hairlines, or thinning at the crown and sides, SMP treatments offer a solution. Whether seeking added density to existing hair or aiming for a tight-shaved head appearance with a five-o'clock shadow effect, scalp micropigmentation serves as a reliable alternative to hair transplants and topical solutions, which often disappoint.

If other choices leave you unsatisfied, SMP is the solution you need.

How many treatments do I need?

For most of our clients in Laguna Hills, two treatments usually suffice to achieve the desired results. However, there are instances where a third and final treatment may be required if the initial two treatments do not produce the expected outcome. The first two treatments are spaced a week apart to account for the skin's tendency to reject some of the pigment implanted during the initial session. The second treatment aims to replenish the rejected pigment and recreate the natural look of hair follicles.

Nevertheless, some clients may face substantial rejection even after the initial treatments, rendering two sessions insufficient. In such scenarios, the third treatment becomes imperative to restore lost pigments and realize the desired outcomes reflected in the mirror.

How long is each treatment?

The duration of each treatment session will largely be dictated by the client's individual needs and hair loss challenges. With this in mind, a typical scalp micropigmentation treatment can span from two to four hours on average. Usually, the first session is lengthier than the following ones, as it involves constructing the hairline and establishing the foundational layer.

Who decides on the construction of the hairline?

At the end of the day, you're the one who decides. Your practitioner will provide recommendations tailored to your features. The objective is to craft a natural hairline, guaranteeing excellent results. Given that SMP offers a permanent solution to hair loss, it's crucial to be content with the work from the outset.

I've already had 3 treatments, now what?

For clients in Laguna Hills who have undergone three scalp micropigmentation treatments, additional sessions won't be necessary until touch-ups are required. Nonetheless, to ensure scalp micropigmentation reaches its full potential, it's essential for every client to follow the set of after-care instructions provided post-treatment. These instructions are specifically crafted to preserve the pigment integrity following its implantation into the scalp's dermal layer.

At ZangSMP, we stand behind our work with a solid one-year guarantee. If you notice any fading or lightening of the pigment after the treatments, we will gladly perform touch-up work to restore the lost pigment, completely free of charge.

When will a touch-up be necessary?

Skin endures extensive wear and tear, influencing pigment appearance. Despite its permanent nature, the pigment is crafted for long-lasting effects. Yet, over time, it may deteriorate and diminish. On average, clients revisit the office five to eight years after their initial SMP treatments.

What are the aftercare instructions?

After your scalp micropigmentation session, your practitioner will furnish you with a series of aftercare directives to maximize the efficacy of the treatment. These guidelines are simple: avoid touching or washing your scalp, refrain from cutting your hair, and steer clear of strenuous activities for a duration of four days. These instructions are crucial for maintaining pigment retention and safeguarding against contamination.

You can rest assured that you can sleep as you normally would, as the pigment won't smudge or leave stains on your pillow or bedding. Furthermore, you have the option to wear a hat if you prefer.

Will I miss any work during treatment?

Since scalp micropigmentation is a non-invasive procedure, there's no need to take time off work after receiving SMP treatments. In fact, many of our clients return to work the very next day.

Will people be able to tell I have had the treatment done?

Although there might be some redness and irritation on your scalp, and the pigments may appear darker and more prominent right after the treatment, these symptoms typically fade within two to three days. Once the pigments have settled and your skin has relaxed from the implantation, your scalp will look entirely natural, whether you're undergoing SMP treatments for additional hair density or to recreate the appearance of lost hair follicles.

Is SMP Painful?

Pain thresholds are as unique as fingerprints; what's mildly uncomfortable to one person could be entirely bearable to another. When it comes to Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP), it's crucial to emphasize its non-invasive nature. Our experienced practitioners are committed to ensuring that discomfort is kept to an absolute minimum throughout the procedure. Your satisfaction and comfort are paramount to us, and we spare no effort in making your SMP experience as pleasant and successful as possible. We diligently implement a comprehensive array of precautions to ensure your comfort remains our top priority from start to finish.

Do I need to keep the shaved look?

As part of the initial consultation process, a key step entails the evaluation of your hair loss severity by our experienced SMP practitioner. This phase also involves a detailed conversation regarding your objectives and desired outcomes. Subsequent to the comprehensive assessment, a customized treatment strategy is devised to effectively tackle your hair loss condition, with the Norwood scale serving as a crucial reference point.

Clients positioned at a six or seven on the Norwood scale are recommended to maintain a shaved look to address potential difficulties in harmonizing hair texture with pigment. By opting for a shaved appearance, the disparities between texture and pigment are minimized, facilitating a more cohesive and natural-looking result.

Do you perform scar concealment?

If you’re looking to conceal scars effectively, Scalp micropigmentation is the answer. Our services specialize in helping clients camouflage injury and surgery scars, including those from FUE and FUT hair transplants.

Do I need to cut my hair before the SMP treatment?

For clients opting for filler treatments or scar concealment through micropigmentation, it's imperative to trim their hair as short as possible for optimal results. Individuals facing extensive hair loss at a Norwood six or seven stage will need to maintain a shaved head both prior to and following SMP procedures.

What do I do for optimal maintenance?

Will it affect the treatment if I continue to shave my head?

Rest assured, the micropigmentation process is permanent, and shaving your head won't compromise it in any manner. Many clients choose to shave their heads after treatment without any adverse effects on the pigment. Just remember to follow the after-care instructions provided by the practitioner to maintain the treatment results effectively.

How do I best protect my SMP from sunlight?

Protecting your scalp micropigmentation from sunlight is essential, and the best approach is to limit prolonged exposure. Prior to spending extended time outdoors, it's strongly recommended to apply a high SPF sunscreen to your scalp. Another option is to wear a hat that offers complete coverage for added protection.

How much does SMP cost?

The expense of addressing hair loss in Norwood class two to class four lies within the range of $2400 to $3400. Meanwhile, for Norwood class five to class seven, the cost extends from $3400 to $4200. Scar concealment on the scalp's apex can demand anywhere from $4200 to $5200 for two to three sessions. For clients seeking scar concealment treatment exclusively, the estimated charge is around $800 to $1000 per session.

When are the payments due?

At ZangSMP, we request all clients to submit a $400 deposit to confirm their booking with one of our practitioners. It's advisable to act swiftly, given our current waiting list, which can result in an eight-week wait for an appointment. Following treatment, clients will divide the cost over two sessions.
