What is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)?

The procedure of scalp micropigmentation is non-invasive, requiring no surgery, downtime, or recovery period. It involves the precise application of organic, plant-based pigment into the scalp's dermal layer to replicate the appearance of a natural full head of hair.

Individuals experiencing baldness, receding hairlines, and thinning at the crown and sides can find relief through SMP treatments. Whether seeking increased hair density or the look of a closely shaved head with a five-o'clock shadow, scalp micropigmentation provides a trustworthy alternative to hair transplants and ineffective topical remedies.

When other methods disappoint, turn to SMP to accomplish the task.

How many treatments do I need?

Typically, two treatments suffice for the majority of our clientele in Oceanside to achieve their desired results. Yet, there are occasions when a third and final treatment becomes necessary if the initial two sessions fall short of expectations. The initial two treatments are spaced one week apart due to the skin's tendency to expel some of the implanted pigment during the first session. The second treatment aims to restore some of the expelled pigment and recreate the natural appearance of hair follicles.

However, two sessions might still prove inadequate for certain clients experiencing substantial rejection after the initial treatments. In such cases, the third treatment is pivotal to restore lost pigments and achieve the desired results reflected in the mirror.

How long is each treatment?

The length of each treatment session will primarily depend on the client's individual needs and the specific challenges posed by their hair loss condition. Keeping this in mind, the average duration of a standard scalp micropigmentation treatment can last anywhere from two to four hours. Typically, the initial session is longer than the subsequent ones, as it involves constructing the hairline and establishing the foundational layer.

Who decides on the construction of the hairline?

Ultimately, the decision lies with you. Your practitioner will advise you on options that suit your features best. The aim is to create a natural hairline to ensure the finest results. Considering SMP is a permanent solution to hair loss, it's important to be pleased with the work from the outset.

I've already had 3 treatments, now what?

Clients in Oceanside who have undergone three scalp micropigmentation treatments won't need additional sessions until it's time for touch-ups. Nevertheless, to ensure scalp micropigmentation reaches its maximum potential, it's essential for every client to adhere to the after-care instructions provided post-treatment. These instructions are specifically formulated to maintain the pigment integrity following its implantation into the dermal layer of the scalp.

With ZangSMP, you can trust in our one-year guarantee for all our work. If you notice any fading or lightening of the pigment after the treatments, simply reach out to us, and we will happily perform touch-up work to restore the lost pigment free of charge.

When will a touch-up be necessary?

The skin is subject to considerable wear and tear, influencing pigment appearance. Despite its intended permanence, the pigment can degrade and fade over time. On average, clients schedule SMP treatment sessions every five to eight years after their initial appointments.

What are the aftercare instructions?

Following your scalp micropigmentation session, your practitioner will provide you with a set of aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible outcome. These guidelines are simple: refrain from touching or washing your scalp, avoid cutting your hair, and abstain from intense physical activity for four days. These instructions are critical for maintaining pigment retention and preventing contamination.

You can maintain your usual sleeping routine without any fear of smudging or staining your pillow or bedding, as the pigment is unlikely to do so. Additionally, you have the freedom to wear a hat if it suits your preference.

Will I miss any work during treatment?

Because scalp micropigmentation is non-invasive, there's no need to take time off work after receiving SMP treatments. In fact, it's common for our clients to return to work the very next day.

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

While your scalp might show slight redness and irritation, and the pigments may seem darker and more pronounced initially, these effects usually diminish within two to three days. As the pigments settle and your skin adjusts after the implantation, your scalp will regain a completely natural appearance, whether you're receiving SMP treatments for increased hair density or to simulate the presence of absent hair follicles.

Is SMP Painful?

Pain tolerance levels are as diverse as humanity itself, with each individual reacting differently to discomfort. What may cause mild distress to one person might be easily shrugged off by another. When it comes to Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP), it's crucial to emphasize its non-invasive nature. Our team of skilled practitioners goes above and beyond to minimize any potential discomfort during the SMP process. We prioritize your comfort and satisfaction, striving to make your SMP experience as smooth and successful as possible. With a meticulous approach, we employ various precautionary measures to ensure your comfort remains paramount throughout every stage of the procedure.

Do I need to keep the shaved look?

Integral to the initial consultation process is the thorough evaluation conducted by our skilled SMP practitioner to gauge the extent of your hair loss. This phase also involves an in-depth conversation to elucidate your objectives and expectations. Following the detailed examination and referencing the Norwood scale, a tailored treatment plan is devised to effectively manage your hair loss condition.

Clients positioned at a six or seven on the Norwood scale are counseled to maintain a shaved look to effectively address concerns regarding the blending of hair texture with pigment. By adhering to this recommendation, the potential discrepancies between texture and pigment are minimized, resulting in a more harmonious and satisfactory outcome.

Do you perform scar concealment?

Scalp micropigmentation offers an effective way to conceal scars. Our specialized services cater to clients looking to disguise scars from injuries and surgeries, including those from FUE and FUT hair transplants.

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

Clients seeking filler treatments or scar concealment via micropigmentation must prepare by cutting their hair to the shortest length achievable. Those with severe hair loss at a Norwood six or seven classification will need to shave their heads beforehand and maintain this regimen following SMP sessions.

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

Rest easy knowing that shaving your head post-micropigmentation won't cause any harm. The process is permanent, and many clients shave their heads after treatment without any issues with the pigment. Remember to follow the after-care instructions provided by the practitioner to preserve the treatment results effectively.

How do I best protect my SMP from sunlight?

Keeping your scalp micropigmentation safe from sunlight is crucial, and the best approach is to avoid prolonged exposure. Before spending an extended period outdoors, make sure to apply a high SPF sunscreen to your scalp. Additionally, consider wearing a hat that provides full coverage to shield your scalp from the sun's rays.

How much does SMP cost?

Addressing hair loss ranging from Norwood class two to class four usually incurs costs between $2400 and $3400. Progressing to Norwood class five to class seven escalates the expenses to $3400-$4200. Scar concealment procedures on the scalp's apex might entail expenses of $4200 to $5200 for two to three sessions. For clients specifically targeting scar concealment, the estimated cost is approximately $800 to $1000 per session.

When are the payments due?

We require a $400 deposit from every client to secure a booking with one of our practitioners at ZangSMP. Acting promptly is crucial, considering our current waiting list, which can extend up to eight weeks for an appointment. Following treatment, clients will divide the cost over two sessions. We also provide financing options for scalp micropigmentation; feel free to inquire about these payment plans.
