Scalp Micropigmentation by Hair Restoration Experts For Men and Women

What is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)?

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a simple and minimally invasive procedure that creates the appearance of a full head of hair by carefully and meticulously placing tiny pigment impressions amongst existing hair. Each impression replicates natural hair follicles, creating a realistic look that is surprisingly low maintenance.

When delivered by one of our experts who have worked with Dr. Epstein for years performing hair restoration surgery, SMP is performed artistically to give the appearance of naturally restored receding hairlines, thicken remaining hair, camouflage existing hair transplant scars, and/or create the look of close-cropped hair.

Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-invasive procedure, suitable for men and women. Unlike other hair loss treatments, it gives you immediate results with no downtime.

Types of Scalp Micropigmentation Procedures

Stand-Alone Treatment

As a stand-alone treatment, SMP is a virtually painless procedure that involves the use of highly specialized equipment and unique techniques to carefully and expertly inject all-natural, color-tailored pigments into the scalp creating a natural look of the patient’s hairline.

A typical procedure involves an initial consultation and two pigmentation sessions to achieve the desired results.

1. Initial Consultation

In order to gain an understanding of the results you want to achieve from your treatment, the experts at the Foundation for Hair Restoration and the Women’s Center for Hair Loss will meet with you, guide you through the process and help you decide which style is best for you. We will create a plan of action and go over each step that needs to be taken to reach your goal and get the results you desire.

2. First Pigmentation Session

During this first session, our experts lay the foundation of your new look by matching the remaining hair’s color and density. Every detail –color variance, space filling, follicle thickness and more– is taken into account to achieve the best results.

3. Second Pigmentation Session

The second session for a thicker and denser appearance is created with more pigmentation delivered to the scalp. This session usually takes place two to four weeks after the first procedure.

4. Post Procedure Care

The care needed for Scalp Micropigmentation is simple and low maintenance. You only need to wash your head the fourth day after the treatment and, during that time, avoid any strenuous activity that will cause undesired sweating.

Once the procedure is complete, the results of a Scalp Micropigmentation treatment can last up to five years.

In Conjunction with Hair Transplant Surgery

Depending on the patient, a hair transplant surgery might not be enough to cover all of the thinning areas. In those circumstances, adding SMP to the surgical procedure can help enhance the distribution of the hair grafts over a greater surface area. SMP is used to build up the look of density between the grafts, resulting in a more natural and fuller look.

1. Planning

As an additional step to the hair transplant surgery, your surgeon carefully plans the graft and SMP distribution on your scalp. Also, any donor site scarring from a prior hair transplant procedure can be treated to look much less noticeable, even with the hair cut very short.

2. Pigmentation Session

After allowing the scalp to heal over 2 months, our experts lay the foundation of your new look by matching the newly transplanted hair’s color and density. Every detail –color variance, space filling, follicle thickness and more– is taken into account to achieve the best results.

3. Second Pigmentation Session

In most patients, a second session is needed to create a denser appearance with more pigmentation delivered to the scalp. This session usually takes place two to four weeks after the first procedure.

4. Post Procedure Care

The care needed for Scalp Micropigmentation right after the last procedure is simple and low maintenance. You only need to wash your head the fourth day after the treatment and, during that time, avoid any strenuous activity that will cause undesired sweating.

Combining SMP with hair transplant surgery gives certain patients the opportunity to have a fuller head of hair look than could be achieved by hair transplants alone.
