Say goodbye to endless styling attempts to cover visible patches of your scalp. No more spending thousands on hair extensions that blend into your thinning hair. Forget about wearing hats and hoodies to disguise a receding hairline. With scalp micropigmentation from SMP Hair Tattoo Preston, those days are gone.
Creating the illusion of fuller hair, scalp micropigmentation is essentially a hair tattoo that falls under the same category of microblading, a cosmetic procedure that’s designed to create fuller-looking eyebrows. While both follow the process of implanting pigment into the skin, the methods are quite different. Instead of imitating hair-like follicles as you would in microblading, scalp micropigmentation uses the style of pointillism which creates small, layered dots in various hues of your natural hair colour to emulate a shadow-like appearance on your scalp. The effects of the treatment are considered semi-permanent with the pigment lasting up to eight years. Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is suitable for anyone suffering with conditions such as alopecia, male pattern baldness, hair thinning, receding hairlines and can also be used to cover any visible scarring left from a hair transplant.
The number of treatment sessions that you require largely depends on your hair loss condition and the amount of pigment required to cover it. For example, sufferers of alopecia will require a higher number of sessions than those with male pattern baldness due to the sites of hair loss tending to be vaster in concentrated areas. Most clinics charge by the session; the more treatments needed the higher the cost. SMP Hair Tattoo Preston offers you the best rates guaranteed for your treatment.
The procedure is carried out with a medically aestheticised electric tattoo device, the power of which is needed to penetrate the thick scalp skin. We know what you’re thinking – this sounds painful. And, in short, it really just depends. To begin the process, the practitioner will massage the scalp with a topical numbing agent designed to subside any pain felt but discomfort is to be expected; the level of which solely depending on your pain threshold.
The most important step before embarking on your scalp micropigmentation journey from SMP Hair Tattoo Preston is research. It is important to note that, like microblading, no formal training is required to become a practitioner so seeking out a responsible and experienced artist is crucial. Don't forget to visit your chosen practitioner’s office before undergoing the procedure too – it’s even better if you’re opting for a specialised SMP treatment centre as they tend to have qualifications as well as sanitized stations and tools. Don’t be shy – snoop their Instagram page, take a look at their work on past clients, read testimonials... the works! Finding out how many clients they see in a day is also a crucial question to ask. Scalp micropigmentation is a service that requires an immense amount of focus and it goes without saying that your practitioner should not rush, so if the number of clients they see in a day appears too high, it could indicate carelessness. Not taking their time and a lack of meticulousness ends up with similar results of a misspelled tattoo. It wouldn’t be something you’d be proud of or show to the world at every opportunity. Trust us, when it comes to semi-permanent cosmetic procedures, this isn’t an area that should be skimped on.
If you feel any element of hesitation – you don’t like the look of the practitioner’s office, their past client’s results don’t align with what you desire, the price seems a little too good to be true – trust your instincts and continue seeking out your scalp micropigmentation journey elsewhere. Even the slightest red flag in your research can be the difference between a wonderful result and a disastrous one. Oh, and despite the similarities between tattooing and scalp micropigmentation, they are not interchangeable so avoid any tattoo parlours who claim that they are qualified to perform this life-altering procedure. If standard tattoo equipment and ink are used, you will end up with much larger dots on your scalp thus causing an artificial appearance that omits the intended illusion of natural-looking hair.
It's also important to discuss with your practitioner the steps that need to be carried out post-treatment. For a month after your final session, swimming pools, saunas and steam rooms are off-limits as well as exposure to sunlight. Avoid excessive exercise for five days and begin moisturising the treated area four days after your last treatment, as well as in between each one.
When it comes to issues surrounding hair loss – male pattern baldness, alopecia, receding hairline, hair thinning – age is truly just a number. While these problems tend to occur gradually over time, people as young as 18 can be plagued with hair loss and, in rare cases, alopecia can be present at birth and further develop throughout childhood. Devastating diseases such as lupus and cancer are truly debilitating enough without having to be concerned about side effects surrounding physical appearance. Lupus can cause scalp lesions resulting in hair loss, which is also an unwelcome consequence of chemotherapy cancer treatment. Scalp micropigmentation is on hand to supply as much comfort as possible during times of hardship.
SMP in Preston is nothing short of a confidence boosting investment – it's no secret that when you look good, you feel good. And that’s exactly how scalp micropigmentation can benefit those who have felt both the physical and phycological burden of hair loss. Low self-esteem is often a crippling side effect of hair loss which leads to lifelong issues with confidence and self-image.
Instead of attempting to cure or reverse the effects of hair loss, something which is notoriously known for being expensive and unsustainable, scalp micropigmentation conceals the issue with longer results and at a fraction of the price of procedures such as hair transplants. So, for those seeking a fuller head of hair to disguise any scalp imperfections, or simply just walk down the street with a little more confidence, then scalp micropigmentation is truly an unbeatable procedure.
