  • What is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)?
    SMP is a non-invasive treatment that uses detailed micro-needles to deposit ink into the scalp. The ending result is a a hair tattoo that closely resembles hair follicles that replicate a "buzzed" haircut look.
  • Is SMP a Tattoo?
    Yes and no. We use different pigments, inks, machines, needles and techniques. It is a field of its own that requires a specialized technician. This procedure uses smaller needles that do not penetrate as deep as regular tattoos. Because of this, SMP is much less painful causing minor discomfort that varies person to person.
  • How Long Does SMP Last?
    With proper care, SMP can last several years. Typically 4-6 years. However the treatment will experience gradual fading over time which is normal. To maintain the desired look, clients may choose a touch-up session to restore fading and secure results for several more years. Touch-up - in most cases - are in the 1-2 year mark.
  • Can Scalp Micropigmentation be Removed?
    Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) shares some similarities with traditional tattoos in terms of permanence and the possibility of removal. While SMP is designed to be permanent, it is possible to remove if desired. The ideal method of SMP removal is through laser removal. It is typically easier to remove compared to traditional tattoos due to the smaller needle size and shallower placement of the pigments used in this treatment. The laser beams work by breaking down the pigment into smaller particles, and the body's immune system then removes the pigments over the course of several weeks. In some cases, additional laser sessions may be required for complete removal. It is important to choose a qualified practitioner for SMP who can provide information on the permanence of the treatment and the options for removal.
  • How Long Does the Procedure Take?
    Treatment length can vary depending on the degree of thinning. Each session can be between 2-4 hours. Most clients will be done in 2 sessions, but in some cases 3 to ensure optimal results. Each session is between 2 to 4 weeks apart to ensure proper healing.
  • Should I Take Off Time Work After SMP?
    Scalp Micro Pigmentation is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment with minimal downtime. Clients can usually resume normal activities shortly after the session. Slight redness may occur for 2-3 days, but quickly subsides. Wearing hats is allowed if needed. The procedure is designed to be minimally intrusive, allowing clients to continue their daily life.
  • How long until I can sweat after the scalp micropigmentation treatment?
    It is recommended that you do not do any intensive or heavy exercise 4-5 days after the procedure.
  • How Much Does Scalp Micropigmentation cost?
    The cost varies depending on the size of surface area that you are seeking treatment. It is recommended for people to send pictures of the hairline along with the top and back of the head to get the most accurate quote! Be sure to include pictures of any scars that you are seeking to get SMP treatment.
