scalp micro pigmentation

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves the application of tiny pigment deposits on the scalp to replicate the appearance of hair follicles. It is a popular solution for individuals who are experiencing hair thinning, baldness, or receding hairlines and want to create the illusion of a fuller head of hair.

Here's how the process generally works:

1. **Consultation:** Before undergoing SMP, individuals typically would have a consultation with Zoe to discuss their specific hair loss concerns and goals. We will assess the client's scalp, hair pattern, and desired hairline appearance.

2. **Design:** During the consultation, Zoe will work with the client to design a customised hairline and hair follicle pattern. This design takes into consideration factors such as natural hair color, skin tone, and facial features.

3. **Pigment Application:** In the SMP procedure, specialised pigments are injected into the scalp using micro-needles. These pigments are carefully matched to the client's natural hair color to create a realistic and natural-looking result. Zoe creates small dots or lines that resemble hair follicles, giving the appearance of a closely cropped or shaved head.

4. **Layering and Blending:** Zoe may use various shades of pigments and different needle sizes to create a layered and textured effect that mimics the appearance of natural hair. This helps to achieve a more three-dimensional and realistic look.

5. **Sessions:** SMP is usually performed over multiple sessions to gradually build up the desired density and coverage. Each session typically lasts a few hours, and there is a healing period between sessions.

6. **Aftercare:** After the SMP procedure, there is usually some redness and minor scabbing on the scalp, which is a normal part of the healing process. It's important to follow our aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing and optimal results.

Benefits of scalp micropigmentation include:

- **Natural Appearance:** SMP can create a natural-looking appearance of a closely cropped or shaved head of hair.

- **Non-Invasive:** SMP is a non-surgical procedure that does not require incisions or anesthesia.

- **Long-Lasting:** While touch-up sessions may be needed over time, SMP results can last for several years.

- **Camouflage:** SMP can effectively camouflage various forms of hair loss, including thinning hair, receding hairlines, and bald spots.

- **Minimal Maintenance:** Unlike hair transplants or other hair restoration methods, SMP requires minimal ongoing maintenance.

If you are thinking of having scalp micro pigmentation it is important to choose a reputable and experienced SMP practitioner who is trained in the technique to ensure the best results. As with any cosmetic procedure, individual outcomes can vary, so a thorough consultation and understanding of the process are crucial before undergoing scalp micropigmentation.
