When you come in for your first session you will most likely be nervous and excited, everyone feels the same way, trust the process and know that you will be beyond satisfied after.
We will quickly do a recap of what you are hoping to achieve. At this point we will start a pre draw of your new hairline. Don’t worry, this is your first session and our approach is to start conservative as you can always lower your hairline or go darker with the pigment on your next session. When you have agreed to the hairline, you will sit back and relax while a technician is mixing the pigment appropriate for your skin tone, hair color etc. At the first session we deposit a first layer of pigment and you will immediately see the difference.
At your second session we will do adjustments if necessary. You can choose to lower your hairline and sometimes even change the shape. At this time, we will apply the second layer of pigmentation to add more density so the result looks fuller and denser.
Third sessions are perfecting sessions. Adding more density where needed, closing up any, patchiness, perfecting the hairline, focusing on blending the SMP with your remaining hair. Remember, this is a building process and it takes time to achieve the look of full head of shaven hair or the appearance of fuller, thicker hair if you are seeing us for the density fill treatment.
SMP can restore a youthful natural hairline you once had by replicating hair follicles using a micro needle so the end result looks like a full head of hair you chose to shave. The hairline is the focal point of your overall appearance and it is important to consider your age, ethnicity, and lifestyle in order to achieve the soft and natural hairline most people are looking for. You may choose a natural receding hairline that is very versatile and it is suitable for most people because it replicates how hair recedes naturally over time. Straight edge up hairline is very popular amongst our Africa American and young Hispanic clients; it is a “straight out of barbershop” kind of hairline. Round hairline is another popular hairline for all ages and is most suitable for rounder faces and larger heads. Regardless which hairline you choose to go with it is important that SMP is administered by a trained and licensed specialist to ensure you get the best hairline for your desired look.
Let us clear up the common myth! You DON’T need to completely shave to benefit from SMP. There are few instances where one would consider getting SMP for thinning hair, most commonly someone who has already had a hair transplant but did not receive density they had hoped for or thinning is visible but you are simply not ready to shave yet. Many think that hair loss only effects men. However, the fact is that 50% off women will experience noticeable hair loss. A variety conditions can cause a permanent or temporary hair loss in women, most common are hormonal changes due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and thyroid problems. Scalp Micropigmentation is an excellent solution for both men and women suffering from general thinning. We will work around your remaining hair to reduce the contrast between your scalp and hair to create an appearance of fuller thicker hair.
Yes, scars can be treated with SMP! All hair transplants leave some form of permanent scaring. Many of our clients have had hair transplants, but unfortunately, some did not get the density they wanted and are deciding to shave to get the desired look with SMP treatment. Those people are stuck with a scar, FUT (strip scar) usually running from one ear to the other or FUE (multiple tiny round, white scars) in the donor area. By shaving their hair the scar would become visible, in which case SMP successfully covers most scars. This is not limited to hair transplant scars, SMP will successfully cover accidents or any surgical scars.
