More invasive treatments for combating hair loss, such as hair transplants, often result in unsightly scarring. Depending on the location of the scar, these can often be difficult to cover up. Visible scarring can greatly affect the confidence of the individual and can have a lifelong psychological impact. SMP treatment can be used to effectively camouflage the areas affected by scarring and give you your confidence back. The effectiveness of the treatment on the scarring depends on several factors, such as the size and type of scarring. But you will usually see fantastic, immediate results.
The FUT/strip hair transplant for instance, tends to leave a linear scar round the sides and back of the scalp. With proper healing, this usually fades in time and can blend in with the surrounding hair. In instances of poor healing, the scar may stretch and become more noticable. SMP treatment can help in this instance by leaving the appearance of shaved hair follicles within the scar, making it less noticable.
Even if your scar has healed relatively well, SMP treatment can go a long way in reducing the appearance of it even further. SMP treatment adds a base layer of colour to the scar, which can darken over time to the point where the scar may appear totally invisible. It is likely to take several sessions of SMP treatment to build up the tone to the extent that it fully camouflages the scarred area. Our certified technicians will be able to advise you on the amount of sessions you’ll need. Get in touch with us today for your free consultation.
Alopecia is a devastating autoimmune condition that causes the body to attack its own hair follicles. This results in extreme hair loss for the individual and a loss of self esteem. There are several forms of alopecia, such as Alopecia Arreata and Alopecia Universalis. SMP treatment can help to mask the signs of hair loss caused by alopecia, plus more. SMP treatment has helped thousands of people suffering from these conditions to feel more confident about the way they look. Whilst there is no cure for alopecia, SMP treatment can ease the visual implications of this form of hair loss.
Alopecia Universalis is a form of alopecia that results in large areas of balding. Because the site is often much larger than that caused by male pattern baldness, you will often require more treatment sessions. Once the treatments have been completed however, you’ll enjoy a greater sense of freedom and confidence with your new look.
With Alopecia Arreata, sometimes referred to as spot balding, it is often difficult to transplant hairs into the affected areas, so SMP treatment is a fantastic alternative. There are many other conditions which may cause hair loss, such as traction alopecia which can be caused by hair extensions which constantly pull on the hair. Another condition that may affect the scalp and cause hair loss is lupus. Lupus is a long-term autoimmune disease which causes the body’s immune system to become hyperactive. It then attacks normal, healthy tissue. Hair loss caused by lupus may grow back, but sometimes sufferers may develop round lesions on the scalp. These lesions, known as discoid lesions, cause scarring of the hair follicles resulting in permanent hair loss. This is often devastating for the person involved.
SMP treatment could be the perfect solution for camouflaging those scarred areas and concealing the appearance of hair loss. If you suffer from hair loss due to scalp conditions and would like to talk through your treatment options, please contact a member of the team.

Thinning of the hair is something that affects both men and women gradually over time. Several factors may influence this including age, as well as over processing the hair with bleach or even using hair straighteners. The finer the hair becomes, the more visible the scalp becomes. With this, the hair becomes more difficult to style as you seek to disguise the visibility of the scalp. SMP treatment can help by adding tone between the areas of thinning hair. This gives the appearance of thicker and denser hair, which makes styling your hair much easier and provides you with more options. Whilst the impact of SMP can be seen instantly, it’s recommended that you have multiple sessions in order to build up the tone. This will create the illusion of more density and coverage.
