What is scalp micropigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation is a permanent and non-surgical solution for hair loss. Using pigment to simulate follicles, scalp micropigmentation artists can meticulously restore any area of balding with density. ?The results are a thicker, more youthful looking head of hair. In a society where unrealistic expectations of beauty and aesthetics are forced upon every individual, many people may feel a lack of confidence if they do not fit that ?norm.? One of the most common issues people face is a balding, receding hairline, and thinning due to a number of genetic and biological variables. ?Scalp Micropigmentation, or SMP, is a new technique of advanced cosmetic pigmentation and has taken America by storm.

Technically, scalp micropigmentation is a type of tattooing categorized under permanent cosmetics. Using proprietary microneedles and a pigment that does not change color, SMP artists can restore your hairline by replicating the follicles that naturally grow on your head. ?SMP has the flexibility to provide clients with the ability to choose whatever style and hairline they like. The scalp micropigmentation artist will provide you with the ability to go over how you want your hairline to look, how dark you want to go, and whether you want to keep a natural look or have a very sharp and defined hairline. ?After understanding your wants and needs, the SMP artist will provide you with all the options available to meet your needs and cover what is and isn?t realistic given your skin type, level of hair loss, and natural hairline.

For those who would like to keep their hair long, density fill treatments can camouflage any thinning. ?By making the skin of your scalp the same shade as the roots of your hair with tiny follicle-like impressions, we reduce the look of balding on your head over a period of 2-3 sessions. This makes SMP or scalp micropigmentation the ideal option for women and men with thinning hair.

Scalp Micropigmentation is a 3 phase process with roughly 1 week in between each treatment

Step 1: The Free Consultation

Your consultation with a Scalp Micropigmentation artist at Scalp King is always free. ?Your artist will review your intake sheet, look for contraindications that may prevent treatment, analyze the area of concern, and go over all possible treatment options with you so you can make an informed decision on how you?d like to proceed. ?Scalp King always offers free digital mockups at the time of consultation so you can get a good visual of how SMP will look on you before we begin treatment.

Step 2: The First Scalp Micropigmentation Session

We take long strides to make sure we bring exactly what the client wants to the end results. Having said that, your Scalp Micropigmentation artist will take a very conservative approach to your first sessions by using a lighter ink than he usually would and giving greater space between impressions. ?They specifically do so in order to let the head heal and see how your body responds to the pressure, depth, and pigment that the artist uses. The first session is a baseline for the proper technique the artist will use in the second session as everyone’s scalp is different and needs fine-tuning.

Step 3: The Second Scalp Micropigmentation Session

In the second session, your Scalp Micropigmentation artist will give you most of the density that you?ll need to create the natural look that you have both agreed upon. The artist will analyze how your scalp has healed and how much of the pigment has held and will make the fine tuning adjustments necessary to give you the full, natural looking head of hair you strive for

Step 4: The Final Scalp Micropigmentation Session

In the final session, your artist is looking to balance out the impressions he has made with your naturally growing hair and blend everything together, putting the final touches on a procedure that will last a lifetime!
