These are answers to questions we often receive.
What is SMP?
Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) is a permanent solution for hair loss. We use detailed micro-needles to deposit thousands of cosmetic hair follicles into the scalp, creating thicker and fuller looking hair with a structured hairline.
Can I go to work?
Yes! This procedure is non-surgical. There is no recovery time, this means you can go to work and return to most normal activities immediately after. Just follow the aftercare instructions.
Who chooses my hairline?
This is custom for every client. Your hairline is your choice. We can create any look from a soft and natural hairline, to a sharp and defined style.
During the first 4 days after each session, do not wet or touch your scalp. Do not use any shampoo or products on the scalp. Avoid sweating heavily. After this 4 day period you may return to normal. Wash your scalp with gentle soaps for one month after treatment.
How much does it cost?
Cost depends on your hair loss and is different for every client. In general a full treatment can cost anywhere between $1500 - $4500. You can text us photos of your scalp or make an appointment for a personal quote. 818-726-6074
Does it work for women?
Yes. Covering the scalp with SMP will make your hair look dark and full. Women can expect between 3-5 sessions for best results.
Do I keep my head shaved?
For clients with class 5-7 hair loss, we recommend buzzing your hair at least once a week. For clients who are adding density to thinning hair, you may keep your hair as long as you'd like.
Will SMP last forever?
Yes, this procedure is permanent and it will not wash off. After several years your treatment will naturally become lighter due to sun exposure, sweating, and scalp shedding. With a touch up session every 3 years, your treatment will last a lifetime.
How does it work?
This treatment requires 2 - 4 visits to complete depending on your hair loss. Each visit is separated by 2 weeks. Every session is important to get your treatment looking natural and complete.
How long is each session?
Each session is approximately 3 to 5 hours. The more hair loss you have, the longer the session will take because there is more area to cover.
Does it hurt?
Sensitivity is different for every individual. We would rate the pain a 4 out of 10. It is a mild feeling and most people watch television or fall asleep during the procedure.
Does it look real?
Yes. When this procedure is done correctly, it will be impossible to know you've had something done. Nobody will know unless you tell them.
