Scalp Micropigmentation or SMP is an option for male and female hair loss patients. This is a camouflage technique that uses tiny points of pigment (almost like a tattoo but much smaller and medical grade inks) to provide a visual background making the hair appear fuller and denser. The appearance can be either permanent or temporary, and often requires multiple sessions, but the results can be particularly useful when more density is needed than grafts are available. It is also great when scars need camouflage, or for mimicking a buzz cut or a “shaved look.”
For those who choose to keep their hair long, SMP helps the hair look fuller when wet.
