What exactly is scalp micropigmentation?
SMP, or scalp micropigmentation, is the act of applying tattoos directly to the scalp. This permanent pigmentation is applied to areas of the scalp where hair has been lost or where the hair is very thin. A scarred area can also benefit from this treatment. The treatment is performed by trained tattoo artists and is a permanent method of giving the appearance of thick hair on the head.
Why do many women choose this treatment?
As we have already stated, scalp micropigmentation works very well with long hair, making it an excellent option for women suffering from hair loss. In the beginning, it was developed to treat men’s bald scalps, but today it is so beneficial to women as well. Female pattern baldness can be covered and then hidden with it, so it is a suitable product for the treatment of bald spots. The product can also be applied to a receding hairline to appear as if hair is growing. Using a darker pigmentation shade to that of your natural hair color can also make thin hair appear thicker.
Your scalp or long hair won’t be damaged
Micropigmentation on the scalp does not damage long hair, as women often fear. A specially trained tattoo artist works around the hair follicle, so the needle doesn’t touch the hair follicle. This treatment targets only the scalp. It doesn’t damage the hair. This procedure will not affect future hair growth because the needle is very short and only penetrates the skin to a shallow depth of 2mm. Women can get scalp micropigmentation at SMP of Austin.
