What is SMP?

Scalp Micropigmentation or SMP is a non-invasive modern technique that makes your hair look thicker and fuller. It is in no way similar to hair transplant or extensive hair therapy programs. It requires special equipment and skilled professionals, both of which are present at our Chicago Scalp Micropigmentation clinic. Here, the most edge-cutting and latest equipment is used by highly trained professionals to inject pigment into your scalp. This procedure may be done in two or three sessions, depending on each individual’s requirement. Scalp Micropigmentation is also known as hair tattoo or hair micro-pigmentation. Before you start stressing over the price of this procedure (and possibly lose more hair), we must tell you it is done at a very reasonable price with guaranteed results.

You may wonder what the benefits of SMP are, other than getting amazing pictures. For those who are bald, SMP will give you an appearance of a recently shaved head or a buzz cut. Individuals comfortable with wearing their hair shaved are highly encouraged to undergo this procedure. People, usually, women in this case, who are experiencing hair thinning, SMP helps them conceal hair loss and gives the appearance of thicker fuller hair. This procedure is non-invasive and has no recovery period. You may continue your day normally the next day after the procedure. For approximately 24-48 hours you may have red spots over your scalp afterwards, but they disappear within the same amount of time. Rare occurrence but true, no side effects have been reported for this procedure so far. As far as pain is concerned, the recipient may experience some discomfort, depending on the pain threshold, but it is relieved within a very short period of time.

What Does Scalp Micropigmentation Cost in Chicago?

SMP may be done in two or three sessions, depending on the individual’s hair type, area to be treated, and severity of hair loss. The cost may vary depending on these factors from $1800 to $3200. The first session may last up to 3-4 hours, second for 2-3, followed by the third session, if needed, lasting for 1-2.5 hours. In the first session, a lighter shade is applied, followed by a darker shade in the next session. This procedure has guaranteed results, and touch-ups can be done 3-4 years later, if required.

SMP VS Hair Transplant

Do you want to go through the pain and discomfort of an invasive procedure without 100% surety that it will work? Well, that is what hair transplant is. A hair transplant does not guarantee results, with high chances of bleeding, infection, and itching. No such thing occurs with Scalp Micropigmentation, a procedure done with perfection at our Chicago clinic, which is permanent and has no after-effects. So call us now to achieve your best look!

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.
