SMP with Hair and Hair Transplant Scars

SMP with hair can be done. Have you ever seen someone with a receding hairline, thinning hair or some hair loss and suddenly the hair has grown back in that same place? It is 100% possible so don’t lose hope. Year after year this trend of hair replacement grows in popularity. The global cure for baldness seems to be out of reach…or does it?

A lot of SMP companies say they have the best pigmentation hair loss solutions. Maybe you’re tired of people telling you to eat this, do that, rub on this gel, use that shampoo, take this pill. Some people choose to have a hair transplant, while others opt for Minoxidil.

It sounds great until you consider what the side effects are – but did you know that Finasteride has been known to cause cancer?

You’re Losing Your Hair What Can You Do?

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) isn’t totally new and it’s become a virtually pain free, real hair loss / hair replacement solution across the UK and overseas for people with hair and for those with no hair.

SMP isn’t just for receding or thinning hair. Scalp micro pigmentation (SMP) produces very impressive results, and you can Camouflage scars on your head, whether they are post-surgery scars, or obvious blemishes caused by accidents to the head.

Professional SMP has been practiced for over 50 years but it started to become more prominent as a hair restoring alternative around 20 years ago.

It lasts with occasional touch ups and looks very fashionable for everyone including celebrities. Hair loss affects men and women and it is an unfortunate burden to those who have alopecia, thinning hair, a receding hairline or other types of genetic hair loss.

Scalp Micropigmentation with Hair or Without Hair

Let’s stop to consider how we’re all affected by factors such as ageing, genetics, post-surgery and excessive or under-secretion of hormones, and we’re not even half-way there. Or how about smoking, alcohol, poor diet and abuse of drugs – these too have been known to cause hair loss. Confidence and self-esteem can be seriously challenged for those who find it very difficult to cope with the social impacts of losing hair.

Is SMP and Covering Up a Scar Pain Free?

A little discomfort might be felt in the early stages of treatment and any pain felt is significantly less than when having a tattoo (deeper penetration of needle) or a hair transplant (invasive surgical procedure and a lot of recovery time). So SMP, is a much less painful procedure, and many patients say it’s virtually painless – find out what our clients say.

A hair transplant is serious surgery. Scarring on the back of the head is quite common for FUT or FUE transplants. FUT hair transplant: the removal of a thin strip of hair / FUE transplant: hair is grafted one by one. The aim is for the scar to be concealed so you can still have your hair styled short any time you want.

How is Scalp Micropigmentation Carried Out?

There is a process and essentially with Scalp Micropigmentation, a microneedle is used to delicately tattoo pigment into the scalp. The end-result is one where the hair tattoo is formed of pigmented hair follicles, which gives the eye dropping impression of a full head of hair.
