What is SMP?

Scalp Micropigmentation or SMP is a non-surgical procedure which is done to eliminate the appearance of baldness, conceal bald spots and scars, and improve the appearance of thin hair. It is often used synonymously with hair pigmentation and hair tattoo. It is permanent, undetectable, and gives quick results. There is no recovery period except for a few limitations; you may have to minimize sun exposure, avoid swimming and shaving your head for a few days. After the procedure, you may have red bumps over the treated area, but they disappear within 24-48 hours.

People who have undergone this procedure have reported experiencing minor to mild pain, depending on their pain threshold. The pain usually subsides immediately once the treatment is over, but some people have reported slight pain for up to 12-24 hours after the treatment.
It is performed at SMP clinics by highly skilled professionals who use the latest specialized equipment. We understand how important looks can be in our personal and professional lives; therefore, no compromise is made on the quality of our work.

Scalp Micropigmentation has several benefits that set it apart from other hair techniques. It is permanent, reasonable cost, non-invasive, and has no reported side effects. It is an excellent option for those who like wearing their head shaved. SMP creates the visual illusion of a head full of hair, and if done on thin hair, it can make it look thicker and more dense.

What Does SMP Typically Cost in a City Like Austin?

SMP is currently the only reliable solution to baldness. Stellar work at the most affordable rates is our priority; despite that, the cost for this procedure is typically only $1600-$3200. The cost mainly depends on the number of sessions, hair type, and area to be treated. Different regions of the scalp have different sensitivity; the temples and ear area having the greatest. The procedure is done in three sessions. The first one lasts for 3-4 hours during which our highly trained professionals inject the scalp with a light pigment. Next comes the second session, which takes 2-3 hours, followed by a third session, taking 1-2.5 hours. In the last two sessions, a darker pigment is used, transforming your look completely!

SMP VS Hair Transplant

While SMP will cost you approximately $3000, the price of a hair transplant may cost as much as $15,000. SMP is unlike other hair techniques, giving you results over-night. A hair transplant may have to be done again, exposing you to risks such as infection and excessive bleeding. SMP has a guaranteed outcome, but the same cannot be said for hair transplant.

Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to the future of hair loss treatments! Scalp micropigmentation is a noninvasive non-surgical treatment that uses very fine micro-needles to place pigment or tattoo ink into the scalp to replicate hair follicles. The procedure creates the illusion of a full head of hair that has been freshly shaven and can be used to treat large and small areas of baldness, to make thinning hair look fuller, to restore a receding hairline and to hide scars from hair transplant surgery.

Micropigmentation works well for people who have lost their hair through male pattern baldness, alopecia, hormonal conditions and female pattern baldness. It is important to note that SMP does not stop hair loss or result in new hair growth. What it does do is make it appear that you have a fuller head of hair than you actually do. The goal is to make your hair loss undetectable.
Scalp micropigmentation is a permanent solution for hair loss that will positively transform the way you look and feel about yourself. The strength of the color will remain for several years but will gradually start to fade a little, and you will notice a slight lightening, much like the fading of body tattoos. Several factors contribute to this, including the type of pigment used, skin tone, the quality of the original procedure and sun exposure. The more your scalp is exposed to the sun's rays, the faster the treatment will fade.

When this happens, you have two choices:

1) Let the slightly fading color remain, perhaps to reflect the greying and lightening of hair as you age.

2) Restore the pigment's original strength with a brief touch up session.
SMP is a form of cosmetic tattooing that is also known as hair tattooing. However, it is very different from the type of body tattoo you might have on your arms, back or legs. The key differences are:

1) The equipment. Scalp micropigmentation practitioners use smaller needles that are designed specifically for the scalp. They also deposit smaller amounts of ink.

2) The tattooing technique. Unlike body tattooing, which involves creating lines and shading the skin, SMP places tiny dots of pigment into the scalp's dermal or middle layer. When viewed from close, these pigment dots appear like real hair follicles.

3) The type of ink used. The pigments used for SMP have been created specifically for this use, and unlike the ink used for the body, they are not composed of dyes and colors. SMP ink is diluted to match a person's hair coloring and will not change color over time, as can happen with body tattoo ink.
SMP is delivered over a series of treatment sessions. Every person is different, but on average, two to four visits are required, spaced a few weeks apart for the best results. The number of sessions is determined by the client's hair and skin color, the rate of pigment fading they experience, the shade of pigment and whether there are any potentially tricky areas to treat such as scar tissue.
Yes, absolutely. Hair loss is not a men-only problem. Women can lose their hair for several reasons, such as a side effect of some medications, alopecia, stress, extreme hairstyling and aging. Typically, hair loss is encountered in a diffuse thinning pattern, which is easily remedied with scalp micropigmentation. This is a realistic hair loss solution for women that disguises hair loss areas with tiny pigmentation deposits, giving the illusion of having denser hair. The micropigmentation dots will blend with your existing hair color, resulting in a completely natural look, even at a close range.
