Tampa Scalp Ink, Tampa’s best scalp micropigmentation service.
Scalp micropigmentation; also known as SMP, hair tattoos or head tattoos, is a hair loss solution that is rising in popularity in the United States. And for good reason. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that gets immediate results for anyone suffering from hair loss.
SMP is actually much more than a “hair tattoo.” The equipment and techniques used are actually quite different. The artistry required to create the look of hair is different from a traditional artist’s skill set. If you’re considering this treatment rather than a hair transplant, or in addition to one, you want a consistent look for best results.
The SMP Process
During your initial consultation, we’ll discuss what you’re looking for, what will look best with your natural hairline and consider how you used to cut your hair. This will bring us to a customized hair loss solution that is specific to your look, wants and needs. Once we’ve agreed on a plan, we’ll start with the micropigmentation.
Although it is similar to tattooing, the techniques and equipment used in scalp micropigmentation are specifically designed for this treatment. The pigment does not go as deep as it normally would in a regular tattoo, which means the procedure is a lot less painful than a typical tattoo.
Once the first treatment has healed, you’ll return for a second visit to fill in the detailed shading that makes the micropigmentation look like real hair. Each person is different, but we typically recommend 3-4 sessions to start.
After the initial sessions, many people don’t need to return for a touch up until several years later.
Who Should Get Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp micropigmentation isn’t a hair loss solution for everyone. When considering treatment, remember that it is the appearance of hair, not actual hair. This treatment is ideal for:
- Men who keep their hair shaved or closely cut
- Men and women with thinning hair
- The look of a shaved head rather than a balding head
- People with scalp scarring, which can be the result of a hair transplant, brain surgery or a facelift
- Individuals with alopecia
- People who are also getting additional hair restoration treatments, such as medications and/or surgery
Benefits of Scalp Micropigmentation
Unlike other hair restoration treatments, with SMP, you’ll see immediate results. That being said, you will need a few procedures before your scalp looks exactly how you want it to look. On average, you only need two treatments to see results.
The procedure is minimally invasive, and you don’t need to undergo surgery. With that in mind, the recovery time is much shorter than hair transplant surgery. Typically, you may see some redness for 1-3 days.
Perhaps one of the best things about SMP is that you can continue to treat your hair as you always have. If you currently dye your hair, you can continue to do so. If you’ve had the procedure for thinning hair, you can continue to style normally and use whatever products you’ve always used. SMP is a great addition to any other hair loss treatments that you’re currently using.
