Our hair loss clinic specializes in a cutting edge, unique, and incredibly effective treatment option known as scalp micropigmentation (SMP) treatment. This treatment is generally suitable for people with varying degrees of hair loss and hair fall, as well as hair thinning.
Today, we’re taking to answering some FAQs and addressing other concerns and queries that people may have regarding this service. Here are some questions that are definitely worth asking before you seek treatment:
1. Who is a candidate for SMP?
Given that the procedure is generally safe and fairly non-invasive, apart from a few basic safety checks, there aren’t many requirements to be a candidate for SMP hair loss treatment. If you have thinning or experience hair loss, you most likely qualify. However, schedule a consultation with our team for confirmation.
2. What goals and outcomes can the treatment offer?
Scalp micropigmentation is a type of permanent makeup that aims to replicate your hair follicles and make them look as realistic as possible. This is why you can expect to have a fuller looking head of hair and scalp and conceal thinning, bald spots, patches, and receding hairlines.
3. Is it painful or uncomfortable?
This is a relatively subjective question because it depends on your pain threshold more than anything. The procedure itself feels like getting a tattoo and may sting or feel like pokes and pressure, but it isn’t necessarily painful. You might experience some level of discomfort, but it is generally reported as a pain-free procedure.
4. Will I need to take time off for treatment?
Generally, downtime is very minimal, if any is required to begin with. You’d be surprised at how simple the procedure really is, with a few sessions being all it takes. After initial evaluations, we’ll create the first layer and monitor for reactions, following which the rest of the procedure will be completed. Each session takes between 1-4 hours, so you can plan your schedule accordingly.
5. How soon can I start seeing results?
Results are fairly quick, and you’ll be seeing them in no time. Since it’s a pigment, after a brief recovery period, you’ll have natural-looking hair from the very first sitting. It’s quite easy to manage, and the difference is noticeable right off the bat.
