Micropigmentation is carried out with a special electrical device with very fine needles according to the following procedure:
• The first treatment is carried out to lay the foundation for your appearance.
• The outer skin layer of the scalp is penetrated with very fine needles.
• The needles deposit a special pigment on the skin. SMP uses a special pigment designed for the scalp.
• Pigment deposition is repeated until the scalp looks like hair follicles. It’s a very detailed process and a session usually lasts 24 hours.
• A second treatment is performed to give the scalp more definition. This is also to ensure that the correct density and tone are achieved. This session is where the final look is achieved.
• The third treatment is optional. It depends on the final look you want to achieve. It’s usually arranged for those who want a darker shade.
• The interval between treatments is 1 to 2 weeks. The pigment should naturally settle on the skin.
the result of scalp micropigmentation looks like a freshly shaved look. Pigment deposits form a “shadow” on the scalp. The shade looks like natural hair follicles. They have a higher hair-to-skin ratio, which results in thicker-looking hair.
