There are many options available to treat hair loss. At City Facial Plastics, we understand how important hair is to a person’s self-confidence and offer many solutions for hair loss. These can include hair restoration options like PRP treatments or hair transplants. In addition, we also offer scalp micropigmentation, or SMP. If you want to explore all the options available for replacing lost hair, City Facial Plastics has many innovative options for you to consider.
What is SMP Treatment?
Simply put, scalp micropigmentation is tattooing hair follicles on the skin. SMP is used in many different ways to cover areas that have thin hair or no hair at all. The effect can be incredible, creating a pleasing aesthetic appearance that resembles real hair follicles.
The treatment process uses pigment injected carefully into the scalp to create the illusion of hair follicles. Think of the appearance of a shaved head where the hair is just beginning to grow back. The pigmentation process is used to create the illusion of hair and can be used on its own, with hair transplants or to fill in natural hair. The pigment is matched to the patient’s natural hair and looks natural.
Who is a Good Candidate for SMP?
Men are typically the best candidates for SMP, but anyone with hair loss can use this option. SMP may be used over a completely bald head to create a “just shaved” appearance. It can also be used to fill the scalp or extend the hair line when the hair is thin and cut short. Anyone wanting to create the appearance of a hair shadow can benefit from SMP.
You do not need to accept hair loss as a fact of life. There are options to give you the appearance of a full head of hair, including SMP treatment. To learn more about SMP, PRP treatments or hair transplants for hair loss, contact our team at City Facial Plastics to schedule a consultation.
