What you see here is session one of an SMP “density treatment”.
Ray has a nice head of hair, but he is starting to experience hair loss at the hairline, crown, vertex, and back of head. This is his first time having a cosmetic scalp tattoo treatment so he’s very excited to see the amazing instant results.
These are photos and a video of before, during and immediately after. Check back here for additional session photos of healed results. You can definitely see improvement after just one session. He will need two more sessions to finish the look of a fuller head of hair.
What is SMP?
SMP, Scalp Micropigmentation Procedure, is a non-surgical hair restoration alternative that uses cosmetic tattoo to layer hundreds of tiny impressions into the scalp. Cosmetic scalp tattoo creates the illusion of hyper realistic hair follicle simulation and can be added to existing hair that is thinning, or in the case of total balding, a “buzzed down look” can be achieved. Many celebrities have had SMP, so you have seen it but just didn’t know! It is virtually undetectable if done well.
How many sessions does it take to create the desired results?
This is a process may take 3-4 sessions, as impressions are layered to create a more dimensional effect. Each session is approximately two hours long. It is truly more cost effective and convenient, than hair transplant surgery, or temporary fibers and sprays that can smudge, drip, or flake off. And the result is natural and realistic looking.
What is the first step?
The first step is a consultation. Contact us for a consultation via Zoom or in person to discuss hairline types, what you wish your desired results to be and costs involved.
When we meet we will map out your design and create your custom color formula with top-of-the-line, organic specialized SMP pigments from 5pm Shadow, master trainer John Chandler’s line.
One of the first questions I usually get is, “Does it hurt?”
Although everyone’s tolerance is different, it is usually virtually painless for most, In fact many of my clients fall asleep! A few of my clients are sensitive and experience discomfort. Again, everyone’s tolerance is different.
Scalp micropigmentation is non-invasive and requires no down time. In most cases, after your hair replacement procedure, you will not need to take any extended time away from work, school, or other functions. After an SMP treatment it is common to notice slight redness on the scalp for 2-3 days post session. This redness subsides quickly, in most cases, about 48 hours and most clients return to work either right away or within a couple of days. The results are a real boost to your self image.
