If you don’t want to wear wigs or a hair replacement system, and think you’re not yet ready for a hair transplant, Scalp Micropigmentation, also known as SMP is the novel remedy for baldness. It may be your best bet.
Essentially, scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a non-surgical hair restoration solution. It is a cutting-edge, non-surgical office-based procedure that is non-invasive and uses sophisticated micro needles that deposit pigment into the scalp. The SMP technique replicates tiny hair follicles to restore thinning hair and resemble its previous density.
Does it hurt? Not really. During the SMP procedure, you may feel a bit of discomfort in certain areas of the scalp. But the discomfort wears off once the procedure is complete.
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) uses a digitally controlled machine combined with tiny needles that are tinier compared to typical tattoo needles, but it is not a tattoo. The pigment used is much less concentrated and does not have the chemical additives found in tattoo ink. It doesn’t penetrate the skin as deeply as normal tattooing and the color can be matched to your natural color, even if you go gray. The effect is natural, as the needles mimic individual hair follicles and gives the look of a full, youthful head of cropped hair.
During the SMP procedure, the tiny ink deposits will match your own naturally shaved follicles like a 5 o’clock shadow that mimics stubble hair. Small hair strokes will be applied wherever hair has thinned or been lost.The procedure can simulate a full-front, side and/or rear hairline. It can permanently camouflage the symptoms of all degrees of alopecia and hide scars, burns and birthmarks.
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is gaining popularity as a cost-effective, affordable alternative to hair transplants. It is natural, requires minimal maintenance, and produces immediate results in line with one’s goals and expectations.
It is ideal for those who have previously undergone hair transplantation and want to reduce, minimize or hide their scars.
MAXiM Hair Restoration, a rapidly growing New York-based hair transplant company with a center in Makati, Metro Manila, has launched the increasingly popular Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) in the Philippines. MAXiMalso has offices in New York City, Connecticut; Chicago, Illinois in the U.S; Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the U.A.E.; Mumbai in India; and Karachi in Pakistan.
According to Mac Fadra, CEO of MAXiM Hair Restoration, the procedure is popular because:
It is non-invasive. No surgery -- which means NO scarring. It needs minimal maintenance. After the procedure, you can return to your daily activities with little or no ongoing maintenance at all.
It does not need donor hair, like in a hair transplant.
It can deliver high density follicular restoration to your style, color and hair line preferences.
It costs much less than a hair transplant, hair systems, and long-term over-the-counter and prescription drugs such as Rogaine and Propecia. Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) will not make a hole in your wallet.
Fadra says Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a long-term solution for hair loss. The results including color and strength should last at least five years. At such point, one can undergo a touch-up procedure to restore any fading.
