The most frequently asked questions that every smp artist receives are: Does hair micropigmentation look
real? Will friends or anyone at work notice? Does scalp micropigmentation hurt? Are there any side
effects? Does scalp micropigmentation fade?
Scalp micropigmentation is the most realistic treatment available today for receding hairline, thinning
hair or baldness. It has no side effects, no pain. In addition, permanent smp has an indefinite duration. At
most, after 4 years it may need a touch-up to revitalize shades.
The scalp micropigmentation can help people regain self confidence and change life for the better.
Smp artists are aware of this, but a client may not be. That is why it is important to empathize with
clients, explain clearly what smp is and how a realistic result can be achieved.
Many times a closed up photo or customer testimonials can be used as example of what SMP can do.
To make a realistic smp, you must keep these aspects in mind:
Designing the hairline
First task of the smp artist is to design an appropriate hairline. The design of an appropriate hairline
depends on a number of factors such as age, existing surrounding hair pattern, existing hair density, hair
color, and head shape.
Dots fusion with existing follicles
The realism of scalp micropigmentation is related to the fusion of existing hair follicles with grafted dots.
This helps to create a homogeneous appearance and 3D effect.
Always match pigment color to existing hair.
Experience in scalp micropigmentation
It seems obvious, but experience is a critical factor in ensuring that scalp micropigmentation feels real.
Scalp micropigmentation can look incredibly real if done correctly. To the naked eye, both from a
distance and up close, smp looks like a shaved haircut.
Post smp tips
Post-treatment care is important. A useful tip to give the client is to keep the surrounding hair short and
well groomed. Hair that is too long, only at certain points on the scalp, creates a contrast between the
actual hair and the smp dots.
The answer is without a doubt yes!
Smp is not just a technique, but can be considered a true art. Scalp micropigmentation creates the illusion
of a thicker head of hair using the artistic method of pointillism. Lots of microdots on the scalp to create
With smp, the artist not only creates density by grafting dots, but he/she creates a 3D effect and shades
that go to frame the face.
As mentioned earlier, one of the fears of people is that scalp micropigmentation may fade away. Scalp
Micropigmentation, performed by an experienced artist, always looks real and natural even after years.
The secret of a hyperrealistic and natural smp remains the pigment. A good smp ink must be
hypoallergenic, long-lasting and resistant to fading. Choosing the best scalp micropigmentation ink
