Scalp micropigmentation, which is more commonly referred to as SMP, is not just a hair tattoo, in fact it’s a highly specialised process where tiny deposits of pigment are injected into the dermal layer of the scalp. When performed by a skilled practitioner, these deposits of pigment mimic the appearance of a freshly shaven head.
It can also be performed and applied to the scalp where hair is starting to thin, allowing you to create the illusion that you still have a full head of hair. This is carried out in a similar way to creating the freshly shaven look, but these pigment is injected in much more densely packed areas to create the appearance of depth and shadow, making the hair appear thicker and hiding the appearance of the scalp which is beginning to appear.
However, scalp micropigmentation doesn’t just aid with creating an illusion of filling and depth or a shaven head, it can also stimulate the growth of new hair. The repeated insertion of pigment in the dermal layer of your skin is actually proven to stimulate the existing hair follicles and cause renewed growth in the scalp.
