FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION?
Scalp micropigmentation is a non-surgical hair loss treatment that gives you the illusion of thicker hair without the need for invasive transplant surgery. The treatment, also known as hair tattoo or SMP, involves tattooing the scalp with small hair-like tattoos that mimic a clean-shaven appearance. SMP has assisted hundreds of men and women in achieving natural-looking hair and regaining confidence in their appearance.
WHO CAN HAVE SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION?
SMP treatment is suitable for both men and women suffering from hair loss and can be used to treat male and female pattern baldness, thinning hair, receding hairline, hair transplant scars and other scars, and scarring Alopecia. Unlike other hair loss treatments, Scalp Micropigmentation is 100% effective mostly because it is a cosmetic tattoo that makes it look like you just got a fresh buzz cut.
WILL THE PIGMENT MATCH MY HAIR COLOR?
At StudioMD we work with natural pigments speciality designed for scalps. The pigments are sterile medical grade to settle quickly and to last longer. Rest assured that every hair color, from fair to red to black, can be replicated using a quality gray dilute, since all hair appears somewhere on the gray spectrum when shaved. With that, our very skillful and experienced SMP artist can accurately match your hair and skin color tone.
ARE CHEMOTHERAPY PATIENTS SUITABLE FOR SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION?
Scalp Micropigmentation can help restore 'aesthetic normalcy' to cancer patients regardless of their age, gender, disease type, or therapy. Nonetheless, we recommend that you wait until you have fully recovered from cancer treatment (for at least six weeks), and that you check it with your doctors before performing any SMP procedure.
IS SMP PAINFUL?
Because the SMP treatment is performed at a much shallower depth than a typical tattoo, the pain is also considerably reduced. Some areas are more sensitive than others, and everyone's pain threshold is varied. But most people claim it to be a very tolerable procedure. In fact, some patients have been known to fall asleep during the procedure. Take comfort in knowing that we offer numbing gel before the procedure, and the option of taking breaks when required by the patient.
