Scalp Micropigmentation, also known as Hair Simulation and scalp pigmentation.

The advance technologies in the medical industry in line with the advances in science and technology, has enabled many conditions to be managed much more efficiently, thanks to the treatment options now available.

While these developments contributed to all segments of healthcare services, it also initiated development activities to make the proper diagnosis and prescribe appropriate treatments for hair loss.

This article will be covering one of these innovations; ‘SMP-SCALP MICRO PIGMENTAION’.

It involves the use of a highly specialized equipment to inject pigment into the scalp.

The main objective of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP), is to mimic real hair follicles.

Scalp Micropigmentation Area

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is done by a special device, using specialised equipment to insert ink at the right depth. 

Micro pigments are applied at the epidermis level of the scalp, with the objective to mimic the appearance of real hair follicles. These procedures try to create the illusion of a full head of shaved hair. Based on a person’s skin texture, SMP treatment lasts for three to four years.

The pigments applied to the scalp eventually dissolve and then disappear completely from the system.

Micropigmentation cannot be done with tattoo pigments, because tattoo needles reach to a deeper layer of the skin.

For Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP), biodegradable ink is used. These pigments are naturally absorbed by the human body, which in turn, prevents colour change in the future. In time, the colours will fade and then be excreted from the body. 

Who Can Benefit From Scalp Micropigmentation?

  1. Patients with Alopecia Totalis: a condition resulting in the loss of all the hair on the scalp.
  2. Patients with Alopecia Areata: a disease that causes hair to fall out in small patches.
  3. Individuals who want to camouflage their FUT scarring associated with prior hair transplants.
  4. Individuals who want to camouflage the appearance of scars from accidents, burns or from any external trauma on scalp.
  5. Individuals with advanced hair loss conditions and cannot achieve coverage or density through a hair transplant.

Advantages of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)

  1. Being a non-surgical treatment; the risk of infection is much lower and the patients recover faster.
  2. With SMP treatment, in just 2 to 4 days, the patient is able to achieve the look of a full head of short-cropped hair.
  3. SMP application enables patients to conceal or diminish the visibility of any scarring on the scalp.
  4. Being a temporary application, after the pigments dissolve and fade out, patients can resume their former appearances.

Disadvantages of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)

  1. There is only one achievable look that a person can use and because the hair pattern stays the same.
  2. SMP does not provide a permanent solution like hair transplant. The pigments used in the application last around 3-5 years.
