What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a minimally-invasive technique that can create the appearance of increased hair density. SMP is essentially a medical-grade tattoo, but it is not something that your neighborhood tattoo artist is qualified to do. SMP uses specialized materials to give patients a natural-looking hairline and accurate scalp density. SMP uses very small, medical-grade needles, designed to deliver a precise amount of ink, one-fourth to one-third of a millimeter beneath the epidermis. Our hair restoration experts use this technology to create thousands of dots on the scalp, creating the appearance of hair.
How Much Does Scalp Micropigmentation Cost?
The cost of all procedures at New England Center for Hair Restoration are calculated on an individual basis. This allows us to meet the unique needs of our patients while helping them achieve their desired results. Your personalized pricing will be calculated during your consultation. Additionally, we accept a wide range of payment options, including convenient financing through CareCredit® and Union Medical Credit.
How Does Scalp Micropigmentation Work?
Scalp Micropigmentation works by minimizing the contrast between the patients scalp and their hair. A pale scalp can be very noticeable, especially against dark hair. SMP camouflages the scalp, making hair look thicker and denser. It can be used on patients who are completely bald and desire a “buzz-cut” look to their entire head and for patients who suffer from thinning hair. SMP can also be used to improve the appearance of scarring from previous hair transplant surgeries.
SMP is done by our highly trained Hair Restoration Experts, who specialize in using this technology and have years of experience performing various restoration procedures. SMP should only be done by a seasoned Hair Restoration Professional who understands how to achieve the natural looking results patients want and deserve. SMP is less painful than a traditional tattoo due to the specialized materials used during the procedure. However, we do use local anesthetics to decrease pain for our patients.
Am I a Good Candidate for Scalp Micropigmentation?
If you are experiencing a thinning hairline and are seeking to create the appearance of fuller hair, you could be a good candidate for this procedure. However, the best way to determine your candidacy is to schedule a consultation.
How is Scalp Micropigmentation Performed?
The color and position of scalp micropigmentation is customized to match each patient and usually requires 2 to 3 treatments over the course of a few weeks. This allows for the ink to settle into the scalp and will ensure consistent and natural results.
What is Recovery Like After Scalp Micropigmentation?
Recovery after scalp micropigmentation is somewhat similar to what you might experience after getting a tattoo. However, each patient is unique and as a result, all recovery experiences will vary. This procedure minimizes discomfort so you can return to you daily routine as quickly and as safely as possible. We will discuss the specifics of your recovery during your consultation.
How Long Will My Scalp Micropigmentation Results Last?
The results of your scalp micropigmentation results are designed to be long-lasting. However, results are dependent upon the individual. To better assess how scalp micropigmentation will work for you, we recommend scheduling a consultation.
