For instance, it’s not uncommon for men to shave their hair off completely in order to disguise thinning. With scalp micropigmentation (SMP), such drastic measures are not necessary. Here at Tajmeel Clinic, we swear by SMP as it is one of the most effective solutions for creating the appearance of a shaved head. But what exactly is SMP, and what does it entail?
Scalp micropigmentation is a procedure that is commonly used to recreate the appearance of tiny hair follicles. The purpose of recreating these hair follicles is to achieve the following effects:
It is an entirely non-invasive procedure that involves the use of micro-needles. Micro-needles are used to inject pigment into the scalp. It is this pigment that creates the appearance of these tiny hair follicles. To help us tailor this treatment to your requirements, we’ll invite you along for a free customised consultation. This will allow us the opportunity to discuss the design and determine the best hairline style to match your age, face, and shape.
SMP is usually carried out over three sessions, which starts by first establishing the hairline and injecting a lower density of dots than required. The second treatment is booked in usually around ten days later, by which time the pigment from the first session has typically faded. Any alterations can be made to the hairline at this stage and we’ll either continue with the chosen pigment or step the tone up or down if necessary.
The third session will be carried out anywhere from one to two months following the second treatment. A third treatment isn’t always required and can be skipped if no further top-up is needed. We’ll advise you if this is the case. SMP is a procedure that usually involves very little pain or discomfort. Once completed, you’ll notice that your hair appears fuller and thicker.
