Reasons Why a Hair Tattoo Would be Right for You

Your hair is a big part of you, and it’s one of the first features about you that people notice. The amount of hair you have reflects your style and personality both socially and personally – that goes for ladies and gents. It’s well documented how losing hair can become soul destroying and at the very least will mean lost confidence and more unlikely to join in social events.

A hair tattoo (SMP) is a guaranteed and long established hair replacement procedure and it will help you to regain your hairline if you opt to. The key is to find the right solution for you. In 2023 there are a variety of interventions and they all promote certain benefits. SMP is guaranteed to work for men and women, but would a hair tattoo be the right way forward for you? We’ll help you to learn more so let’s define some reasons.

A Hair Tattoo Hides Scars

A hair tattoo will hide scars from a previous hair transplant, and if you have scarring from previous illness or surgery.  Scar camouflage with a hair tattoo will blend in seamlessly with the hair / scalp surrounding the scar.

Create More Density and Thickness

A hair tattoo isn’t only suited for very short hair (buzz cut). For instance if your hair is thinning, a hair tattoo (SMP) can be applied to give the appearance of a restored hairline and fuller thicker looking hair.

A Low Maintenance Treatment

Would you like to put those creams, topics and latest hair growth shampoos in the past? After your final SMP session you will be amazed with the results and there will be limited aftercare for the first 30 days (no affect on your lifestyle), and you will want to maintain that look of course you would.

Now here’s the thing: the treatment will last a few years before you will require a touch up session with your scalp technician. So as you can see there is little maintenance involved when it comes to having a hair tattoo. Your SMP technician will discuss further. You can read more about hair tattoo aftercare here. At Skalptec we will only advise touch up sessions when they are necessary.

SMP Looks Natural

You’ve probably noticed how sometimes it’s obvious when you see someone wearing a wig? Well, there are other hair loss treatments that don’t look very natural, but SMP really does. A short buzz cut look with SMP, appears like you’ve just cropped / shaved your hair. The result is a look of 3D hair follicles all done to match factors such as: hair colour, hair grain direction, the shape of your face, the right texture – so it looks seamless and natural.

Attention to detail is given (for short and longer hair) to the whole treatment including the hairline, and as long as your treatment is in the hands of a fully fledged hair tattoo professional you can watch and have confidence as the magic of SMP takes effect.

A Hair Tattoo is Guaranteed to Work

You have seen ‘the next best thing’ advertised and perhaps when you tried it out, you experienced adverse side effects, or it just didn’t match the strong claims and hype? The science of hair regrowth is ongoing and the cure for hair loss is one that many want to experience in the hope it works. Feeling as though you’re back to square one with no hope can be upsetting, financially challenging and frustrating.

A hair tattoo doesn’t focus on hair regrowth or hair growth and it’s not a punt or taking a chance. You get what you agree to with your SMP technician – guaranteed.

It’s Safe and Non Surgical

Having a hair tattoo is safe.  Custom ink pigment is organic so it’s non-toxic and there are no chemicals involved so the risk of infection is next to nil. During a free consultation a SMP technician will provide any reassurance that you need – it’s a very safe, painless procedure.

Restored Confidence

Dissolving confidence is a major issue for men and women who lose hair. SMP is unique and it’s amazing the impact it has on people. You too can regain your confidence. The psychological effects are positive and you can read more here.

Quick Recovery Time

You will see remarkable results session by session as SMP coverage is added. Life after each session has very few very short-term  limitations so downtime is minimal even for those who have a hectic lifestyle.
