What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp Micropigmentation also known as SMP is an extremely intricate procedure which is detailed with micro-needles (sometimes called nano needles) to deposit pigment into the scalp, to mimic the appearance of real hair follicles that have just been shaved. It works by making thinning hair, even long hair look fuller, or creating the illusion of a full head of hair with a buzz cut, on a fully or partially bald head. SMP is classed as a semi permanent procedure however it may start to slightly fade between 4-6 years, due to skin naturally exfoliating itself. Clients can return if they wish for a quick touch up. This cosmetic solution will not wash off but can be tweaked as years go on.
