Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP) – Medical Hairline Tattoo

Home Laser & Skincare Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP) – Medical Hairline Tattoo

Hair loss can affect people of all ages and genders. While losing about 100 hair strands daily is normal, it can be alarming if the number goes up. Unfortunately, everyone cannot undergo a hair transplant to fix hair thinning and baldness due to several reasons. Scalp Micropigmentation Dubai is an alternative option for everyone who wants to improve their scalp appearance without hair transplant surgery. Scalp Micropigmentation or SMP is a cosmetic treatment that enhances the appearance of hair on the scalp using a tattooing-like technique. If you have a hair thinning problem or bald spots, this technique can be suitable for you.

What is Scalp MicroPigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation or SMP Dubai is a non-surgical and minimally invasive hair tattooing technique. It is the ideal and cost-effective hair loss solution for anyone suffering from excessive hair loss. This simple yet effective treatment is perfect for treating permanent hair loss caused by androgenic alopecia.

SMP is a hair tattooing technique that uses microneedles to deposit specifically designed pigments into the scalp. Instead of cutting the scalp and transplanting hair follicles, this technique is based on cosmetic pigmentation. However, remember that this is not a hair regrowth technique, as it only creates a shaved-head-like appearance with micro hairs.

Although it resembles the tattooing technique and is known as a hair tattoo, it does not use the usual tattoo ink for pigmentation. The special ink is designed for scalp pigmentation which does not fade or spread out over time.

Pre-Procedure Care

Hair Tattoo Dubai is non-surgical and minimally invasive; therefore, no extensive preparation is required before this procedure. However, some general preparatory instructions are as follows:

  • Discuss your medical history and medications with the practitioner beforehand.
  • Let your practitioner know about any allergies that you may have.
  • Get all the tests done before the treatment. Candidates should go to the clinic with a freshly washed scalp on the day of the treatment.
  • Quit taking blood-thinning medications, like aspirin, etc.

SMP/Hair Tattoo Procedure

Scalp Micropigmentation or Hair Tattoo in Dubai is a simple treatment that delivers natural-looking and long-lasting results. Generally, the process of this treatment is similar to the tattooing process. However, the pigment used for hair tattooing is different from the one used in body tattoos.

During the procedure, an expert delivers specialized pigments into the dermal layer of the scalp. He/she uses a handheld device with micro-needles of varying sizes to create a natural-looking head of hair.

This cosmetic pigmentation procedure uses safe and tested pigment to inject into the scalp. The practitioner will choose the color of pigment based on the candidate’s natural hair color. Moreover, besides using different needle sizes, the pigment is also injected at varying angles and penetration depths. It creates a more natural-looking hairline and does not appear unreal.

Post-Procedure Care

After Hair Tattoo Dubai Treatment, your practitioner will give you some aftercare instructions to ensure optimum results. Some general post-procedure instructions are as follows:

  • Avoid unnecessarily touching your scalp until the pigment sets in.
  • Do not wash your scalp for at least 3 days after the procedure. It will allow some time for the pigment to settle down.
  • Avoid rubbing or massaging your head immediately after the procedure.
  • Keep your scalp away from direct sunlight to avoid harmful UV rays for at least 3-4 weeks.
  • Avoid picking and scratching your scalp and the scabs that may form.
  • Use a prescribed moisturizer to keep the scalp from dryness and flaking.
  • Refrain from heavy workouts and strenuous physical activities. Generally, avoid anything that may lead to sweating.

Scalp MicroPigmentation FAQs

How much does scalp pigmentation cost?

Like any other cosmetic procedure, the cost of scalp micropigmentation also depends on several factors. The major factor is the scalp area. Every clinic has a different price depending on the area of the scalp that needs to be covered.

Does scalp micropigmentation look real?

Yes, scalp micropigmentation can look quite real. However, it only looks real if it is done correctly. So, make sure you choose an experienced and reputable doctor to carry out the procedure.

Do you have to shave your head for scalp micropigmentation?

Not necessarily. If you need to add density to the thinning hair or cover bald spots, then shaving is not mandatory. However, a fully shaved head is quite common for scalp micropigmentation.

Does scalp micropigmentation hurt?

The pain or discomfort associated with scalp micropigmentation is similar to any other cosmetic procedure. Usually, the pain is quite minimal and most patients do not even feel it. In most cases, it hurts even less than getting a tattoo.

Is scalp micropigmentation permanent?

Scalp micropigmentation is considered semipermanent. Although, it has the ability to last for about 8 years yet the treated area will be faded with time. However, if the treatment is done correctly, the color will only lighten and not change.
