Scalp Micropigmentation: How Long It Lasts And What You Should Know

If you’re looking for a way to spice up your appearance, scalp micropigmentation may be just what you need. It’s a type of cosmetic tattooing that can add fullness and dimension to your head. Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) uses tiny needles to deposit pigments into specific areas of your scalp. This treatment has been around for a while, but it’s still relatively new in the world of cosmetic procedures.

Before you sign up for a scalp micropigmentation treatment plan, here’s what you should know:

Longevity of treatment

First and foremost, scalp micropigmentation lasts for a long time — from 3 years and upwards! This is great because it means you don’t need to worry about frequent touch-ups. Please be advised that while scalp micropigmentation doesn’t regular weekly maintenance, you may, once every few years, need to check in with your SMP technician for a touchup.

Requires repeated visits

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) requires multiple visits over several weeks or months to complete. It’s not something you can do one time and then back out, you need to see it through.

Benefits of Scalp Micropigmentation

1. Increases your confidence and self-esteem

According to one study, 75% of men have reported a drop in confidence, following their hair loss and eventual baldness. scalp micropigmentation fixes that. By injecting pigments into the skin around your scalp, we can give you back the sense of confidence and self-esteem that comes from having a full head of hair. And even if you don’t have any hair left on your head anymore (which happens sometimes), we can still give you a more youthful appearance with our nonsurgical procedure.

2. Add volumes to your hair

If you have thinning hair on the top of your head or bald spots, scalp micropigmentation can help fill in those areas and give you a more natural look that’s less shiny than regular hair. If you’ve gone through chemotherapy, or if you have alopecia, this procedure can help you feel more confident about your appearance. It’s a way of giving yourself a confidence boost that is both permanent and inexpensive.
