WHAT IS SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION?
WHO IS IT FOR?
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN UNDERGOING SMP?
- Hair Micropigmentation achieves the look of real hair, but it does not achieve the texture that hair has.
- Make sure your scalp is clean (no hair products) before the procedure as it affects the result of the pigments.
- Avoid swimming, taking hot baths, sweating, or exposing your scalp to direct sunlight as it causes fading of the pigment colour.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How long does it normally take?
A: A session of hair micropigmentation typically runs around 2-5 hours, depending on the degree of hair loss or scarring. It also usually takes 2-4 sessions to achieve the full desired result. Each session should be 3 to 4 weeks apart.
Q: How long will it last?
A: Hair micropigmentation is a semi-permanent hair loss treatment. With that said, results can last up to 3-6 years, with proper maintenance. Unlike tattoo inks, SMP pigments do not change colour, though they may fade over the years. The colour can be restored through touch-up sessions.
Q: Is it painful?
A: All clients will need to apply numbing cream for 30 mins before the treatment. It depends on your pain tolerance. Generally, clients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. SMP is consistently less painful than traditional tattoos. You may experience a bit of swelling or discomfort immediately after the session, though it eventually subsides.
