Transforming Hair Loss with Micro Head Tattoos

What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp micropigmentation, often referred to as SMP, is a revolutionary technique that simulates the appearance of a closely shaved or buzzed head of hair. Unlike traditional tattooing methods, scalp micropigmentation pigments are specifically formulated for the scalp. This procedure employs micro head tattoos, creating the illusion of hair follicles to provide a natural and seamless look.

Scalp Micropigmentation vs. Traditional Tattooing


Let’s clear the air on the difference between scalp micropigmentation and traditional tattooing. While both techniques involve the use of a tattoo needle, their goals and outcomes vary significantly.

Needle SizeSpecialized scalp needleTraditional tattoo needle
TechniqueMimics hair folliclesCreates various designs

Scalp micropigmentation focuses on replicating the appearance of hair follicles, making it an ideal solution for those dealing with hair loss. In contrast, traditional tattooing is a form of artistic expression that uses different inks and needle sizes to create various designs on the skin.

The Scalp Micropigmentation Process

1. Consultation


Your journey towards a fuller-looking head of hair begins with a consultation at Elegant SMP. Here, you’ll discuss your goals, expectations, and any concerns you may have. Our expert scalp micropigmentation artist will assess your scalp to determine the best approach for your unique needs.

2. Custom Pigment Selection


Scalp micropigmentation pigments are specially designed for the procedure. The artist will select pigments that closely match your natural hair color, ensuring a seamless and natural appearance. At Elegant SMP we use multiple shades in order to deliver the highly sought-after elegant fade at the hairline and give it an overall natural-looking finish.

3. Micropigmentation Tattooing


Using a specialized scalp needle, the artist meticulously applies pigments to your scalp. This process creates the illusion of hair follicles, providing a realistic and textured look. Pointillism is a skill and an art that we are absolutely obsessed about.

4. Gradual Buildup


Scalp micropigmentation is often done in multiple sessions to achieve the desired density and shading. The gradual buildup ensures that the results appear natural and subtle.

5. Maintenance


It’s important for clients to follow post-care instructions in order to both prolong and maintain the vibrancy of their treatment. While scalp micropigmentation is semi-permanent, it will require touch-up sessions to maintain its optimal appearance (once every 2-5 years depending on several factors).

Benefits of Scalp Micropigmentation

  • Natural Look: Scalp micropigmentation delivers incredibly natural-looking results, making it difficult for anyone to discern that you’ve had the procedure done.

  • Low Maintenance: Unlike other hair loss treatment options, scalp micropigmentation requires minimal maintenance, saving you time and effort.

  • Quick Recovery: The healing process for scalp micropigmentation is swift, allowing you to return to your regular activities sooner.

  • Boosts Confidence: Many individuals who opt for scalp micropigmentation report a significant boost in self-confidence and a more youthful appearance.

Elegant SMP is the place to get your scalp micropigmentation if you are interested in quality technique. Not all SMP is the same and your practitioner's training really does matter. For me, understanding how my artist could achieve an authentic looking hairline was very important, and very few SMP artists have the training to achieve that. Tommy at Elegant SMP is a true professional who understands how to get a natural looking result that is difficult to replicate - which is a true testament to his training. My SMP results exceeded my expectations and I would recommend Elegant SMP to anyone who is interested in getting the highest quality work the first time, or repairing SMP work that missed the mark.
