FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Scalp micropigmentation is a nonsurgical treatment to hide the lack of hair in areas affected by baldness. It can also be used to camouflage scars.
Some people are not good candidates for hair transplantation and often choose trichopigmentation to create the illusion of a shaved head or greater density. SMP can also be useful to hide a transplantation scar (FUT) and small scars caused by an FUE hair transplant.
Thousands of men around the world have undergone SMP treatment, improving their appearance. It is an increasingly used technique because it is effective and minimally invasive.
Certainly, the pigments are certified at the European level and do not contain heavy metals or ingredients that are hazardous to health. European regulation is the strictest in terms of safety.
On average, a session lasts 2-3 hours.
Trichopigmentation, due to the regeneration of the epidermis, will tend to fade over time and require periodic touch-ups.
Depending on the treatment chosen (temporary or permanent SMP), touch-ups will be more or less frequent.
With shaved-effect SMP, we recommend cutting the hair every 48 hours. In the case of density effect SMP, there are no such limits.
Trichopigmentation creates absolutely no damage to the hair as the needle penetrates the skin only superficially without reaching the hair root, which is located considerably deeper. Many dermatologists and surgeons recommend SMP as a solution to solve baldness.
There are absolutely no problems with performing SMP before a hair transplant.
In case you want to perform SMP treatment after hair transplantation, we recommend waiting 6-8 months postoperatively.
In any case, we recommend seeking medical advice.
Alcohol intake in the hours before treatment is not recommended.
It is very important to choose an operator with years of experience. The photographs and videos will give you a clear idea of the style the operator adopts.
It is also important to verify the operator’s possession of the regional sanitation diploma, without which it is illegal to carry out this activity.
Permanent Scalp Micropigmentation:
It is a Scalp Micropigmentation with a longer lasting effect than the temporary version and consequently needs touch-ups much less frequently.
The difference between permanent and temporary solution is the type of pigment used. In both cases we are talking about pigments specific to the scalp, but in the case of permanent SMP we are talking about a pigment that cannot be phagocytosed by our body.
It is aimed at all those who desire a lasting solution. Unlike the temporary solution, which needs reinforcement on average every 6 months, permanent SMP requires less frequent touch-ups.
The frequency of touch-ups depends on subjective factors such as: skin type, sun exposure without sunscreen, personal expectations of the client, etc. We can say that on average reinforcement sessions will be needed every 2-4 years.
Over time it will lose intensity, becoming less and less visible.
The pigment loses intensity due to the continuous and natural regeneration of the epidermis in which the pigment is deposited, this causes a constant lightening over time that will result in the pigment being barely noticeable.
Absolutely not, thanks to our “Micro Point Shadow” technique, the treatment will not undergo any kind of change over the years. This phenomenon only happens if low-quality pigments are used or if the wrong technique is used.
The permanent pigment loses intensity over time, adapting perfectly to the weathering of the hair. In subsequent sessions, it will be sufficient to use a pigment with a softer shade to even out the SMP with gray/white hair.
Certainly, the treatment can be eliminated quickly with new generation lasers. The pigment will be 100% removed without leaving a trace and without damaging the hair and skin.
Temporary Scalp Micropigmentation:
The difference between permanent and temporary solution is the type of pigment used. In both cases these are pigments specific to the scalp, but in the case of temporary we are talking about a pigment that can be phagocytosed by our body and then reabsorbed over time until it disappears.
We recommend the temporary solution for people who want to try this technique, keeping the option more reversible than the permanent solution.
The frequency of touch-ups depends on subjective factors such as: skin type, sun exposure without sunscreen, personal expectations of the client, etc. We can say that on average reinforcement sessions will be needed every 6 months.
The treatment will tend to disappear if it is not touched up again. Disappearance can take a variable amount of time from person to person depending on various factors such as skin type, pigment color, sun exposure, etc.
Yes, the client can decide according to his or her needs, wanting to switch to the permanent solution or alternatively continue with the temporary solution.
Certainly, no one prohibits starting the journey with temporary SMP and then later moving on to permanent SMP. The result will always be 100% natural
