Scalp Pigmentation
Scalp Pigmentation


Many people across the world have their scalps treated with scalp micro pigmentation every day, but what is it? What are the benefits of scalp micro pigmentation treatment and how does the procedure work exactly?

What is SMP by Hair Tattoo Plymouth?

Scalp Micropigmentation also known as SMP by Hair Tattoo Plymouth is a treatment which helps to create the effect of having a fuller head of hair using a process that is remarkably similar to tattooing. Dark shades of black colour or pigment are etched into the scalp using an electric tattoo device. Using a technique called pointillism, tiny layered dots are implanted in the scalp, which emulate the look of hair follicles. A skilled practitioner will make the dots look like hair follicles and naturally blend them into the rest of your scalp so that the effect is seamless.

This treatment is highly specialized and requires the work to be carried out by a skilled practitioner. Prospective clients are recommended to search for properly qualified practitioners of scalp micro pigmentation, not just attend their nearby tattoo parlour. Because the skin of the scalp is being broken, there is always a risk of infection. Prospective clients may wish to check if their chosen practitioner maintains proper hygiene, using gloves and keeping the environment sterile through regular cleaning and protective films on machinery.

How is the SMP by Hair Tattoo Plymouth treatment done?

The first thing to note is that scalp micro pigmentation treatment is carried out over multiple sessions, not just one. The reasons for this include the following:

  • Safety Considerations: The initial foundation layer is used to check how your body responds to the pigment, whether the skin holds it well and if there are any adverse reactions.
  • Control: By spreading the treatment over multiple sessions, the client is able to keep a greater degree of control over the process, ensuring the results are what they desire.
  • The Final Result: By carrying out the pigmentation treatment over multiple sessions, various adjustments can be made during the course of treatment, ensuring the final result is the best it can be.

After the client has chosen their practitioner, they will book an initial consultation with them in which the Pigmentation Artist will go through the general principles of scalp micro pigmentation and what the client must do as part of the procedure. These include the following:

  • Showering before every treatment session. The client will not be permitted to wash their scalp for four days after each session. Sweating will also have the same effect, so clients will be advised to keep out of direct sunlight. Swimming, sauna and steam rooms will also be forbidden to the client during this period.
  • Each treatment can take up to five hours, and the number of treatments required will depend on the person. Their scalp will retain pigmentation differently to everyone else, and the entire procedure is layering colours on top of each other. It will take multiple treatments to get the desired effect in the final result.
  • The effects of scalp micro pigmentation treatment are not entirely permanent. The effect could last for up to eight years, but over time it will start to fade naturally. The skin naturally sheds over time, and so the pigmentation will be lost. Clients with very dry skin may suffer this loss over a shorter period of time.

Prospective clients are recommended to prepare their questions in advance of this initial consultation, to find out whether the treatment is for them and if the chosen practitioner is the right one.

First Session

After the initial consultation, the client will book their first treatment session. In that session, the scalp will be treated with a numbing agent to help prevent any pain, and the pigmentation will be laid in what’s called a foundation layer. This layer will be the basis on which future sessions will be layered to provide the final effect.

After the session, the client may notice that some of the layer will fade quickly. This is normal, the next sessions will help to complete the look.

A few weeks after the first session, the next session will be booked. The number of follow up sessions will depend on the client, but three or four sessions in total is ordinary.

Follow up Sessions

In the follow up sessions, the pigmentation will be layered on further, increasing the density of the pigmentation and creating a natural illusion of hair follicles. Much time will be spent in blending the pigment into the hairline to ensure a seamless look.

Final Treatment

After the final treatment, the client will finish the treatment. The effect can last for up to eight years but it is recommended that a touch-up session may be taken around 5 years after the treatment.

Benefits of Scalp Micro Pigmentation Treatment

The benefits of SMP by Hair Tattoo Plymouth Hair Tattoo treatment cannot be understated. Clients can expect a boost in confidence and self-esteem, the treatment itself is low-cost and very low maintenance and there aren’t many risks associated with the treatment. No more wigs, and no risks associated with surgery.

Scalp Micro Pigmentation treatment may be of interest to many people who have lost their hair, through natural aging and male and female pattern baldness, or cancer patients, or people with naturally thin hair.
