Does SMP Work for Women with Long Hair?

Yes! Scalp micropigmentation replicates the look of hair by making it appear fuller. It works for women with both short and long hair. While it won’t actually give you more hair, it conceals the bald spots, giving you more self-confidence and an improved look.

Does Scalp Micropigmentation Damage the Hair Follicles?

No. Scalp micropigmentation uses a needle that deposits the ink between the hair follicles deep beneath the skin. It does not damage them in any way, so your hair will still grow. SMP is a very safe procedure and works for those with hair loss. Schedule a consultation to see if SMP is right for you today.

Will SMP fade?

Just like tattoos, SMP ink will fade over time. However, the treatment will last years, and longer with the proper after care. For example, by applying sunscreen and using moisturizer on a daily basis, you’ll protect the ink from the sun’s harmful rays and help prevent flaking and fading. A simple touch up will be all you need down the road.

What Are the Care Instructions?

The best thing you can do after scalp micropigmentation is to let it heal. Small scabs will appear and you should not scratch or pick at these. This is a normal part of the healing process. Plus, staying out of the sun and avoiding excessive exercise immediately after treatments will speed healing, too.
