This is the quick guide to scalp micropigmentation, also known as SMP by SMP Peterborough. In a few short sections we will cover what it is, the process, as well as the risks and benefits of the procedure.
SMP by SMP Peterborough is a non-surgical medical procedure in which natural pigment gets applied to the scalp. Not going as deep as a tattoo would, the pigment only gets applied to the epidermal layer of the skin. The results of this leads to a fuller looking head of hair by mimicking the look of natural hair follicles.
SMP by SMP Peterborough can help a multitude of hair loss and thinning issues.
Both men and women alike experience hair loss during their lives. Whether that is the 50% of men over 50, 16% of men 18-29, or even the 40% of women under 40 who face natural hair loss, alopecia, or even cancer. SMP by SMP Peterborough can greatly alleviate the effects of hair loss by giving the appearance of thicker hair.
Alternatively, it can help cover and soften the look of scars caused by invasive hair loss treatments.
When first considering SMP by SMP Peterborough you will be given a free consultation with a specialist. They will figure out what you are wanting from the procedure, as well as ensure that you understand the process, risks and benefits. It is important to know that it is right for you.
The treatment will then be booked over the course of 3 separate sessions, with each treatment taking an average of 2-3 hours. The wait between the sessions will be a minimum of 10 days to ensure proper healing, keeping both you and your scalp happy and healthy.
After discussing the desired hairline that you are wanting to achieve, the artist will draw the ideas and designs so as to visualise the end result. When the perfect shape is desired it is time to begin the treatment. The hairline will be higher than originally planned, however over the course of the 3 treatments it will be lowered so as to allow you to change your mind on the placement between sessions.
Additionally, the pigment colour will need to be chosen and matched to the remaining hair you have, if you have any. Much like the hairline, the pigmentation will be slightly changed each session. Starting with the lightest colour, the transition to a darker pigment in the second session will create a more realistic and accurate look.
The second session focuses on adding density and definition of the hairline, whereas the third will be to ensure that any faded areas can be retouched.
The actual process of the treatments will involve a numbing agent being applied to the scalp so as to minimise discomfort. The scalp will then be pierced with microneedles to embed the natural pigment into epidermal layer of the skin.
The results of SMP by SMP Peterborough are permanent with a chance of fading over time. It is important to take care of yourself after the treatments and to practice proper aftercare to avoid premature fading. At the end of every treatment information on the correct care is provided.
Now that we know what is involved with SMP by SMP Peterborough, let’s cast an eye to the benefits. As a medical procedure it is vital to know whether or not you are wanting to go ahead with the treatment. Here are just a few benefits that SMP by SMP Peterborough can provide for you.
With any medical procedure there are risks that must be weighed against the benefits. However, with SMP by SMP Peterborough these risks are incredibly minimal and only relevant to untrained, or poorly trained artists.
The above risks are minimised to the point of nonexistence for those who are professionally trained and licensed. It is always recommended to see proof of certification, and if you are still unsure then it is always okay to ask for a portfolio and credentials of their work.
If you are worried about allergic reactions or adverse effects from SMP by SMP Peterborough then ask the artist to test a small patch of skin. Due to the nature and quality of the inks however, it is unlikely that an allergic reaction will be triggered.
