Frame Your Face With SMP
Whether you’re a man looking to rock a Bald and Free look or a woman dealing with female hair loss, scalp micropigmentation is a groundbreaking hair loss treatment that provides an opportunity to frame your face by creating a natural-looking hairline with pigmentation impressions. If you’ve struggled with hair loss and have been searching for a solution that delivers swift, instant, and reliable results, SMP offers a low-maintenance and non-invasive treatment option that requires no medication or surgery.
Understanding the Duration of SMP Treatment
The duration of SMP treatment is an essential factor to consider before getting started. During a typical SMP session, the process can range from 2 to 5 hours to complete. Factors like the complexity of skin type, the extent of the desired outcome, and individual hair loss concerns play a significant role in determining the duration of SMP treatment.
Factors That Influence the Duration of SMP Treatment
Individual skin types play a huge role in determining the duration of treatment. Being the largest organ of the body, naturally, there is a lot of complexity to it. More compromised skin conditions will require additional time and precision during the procedure, while others may only need a short period of time to get the desired results. Additionally, the number of sessions required can vary based on individual circumstances. Typically, a minimum of 3 treatment sessions is recommended to achieve optimal results.
Importance of Aftercare and Consultation
Proper aftercare routines are crucial for maintaining the longevity of your SMP results, with the recovery period being relatively swift and non-invasive when compared to hair transplantation. At Elegant SMP, we provide our clients with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results and an extended lifespan for your SMP.
Additionally, before initiating treatment, a consultation will be conducted to evaluate hair concerns and future hair loss possibilities. Widely used classification systems such as the Norwood Scale for men or Ludwig Scale for women will be used during our assessment to evaluate the extent of hair loss.
Cultural Significance of the Hairline
Facing hair loss issues is a universal issue, and different cultures account for it in unique ways. In the past, hairlines were an imperative aspect of physiognomy, and people’s hairlines could reveal a lot about them.
