Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP)
Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP) is a permanent cosmetic ‘tattoo’ that mimics the very short hairs of a closely shaved scalp. It is a new and innovative technique that offers an alternative styling option for men who do not want or are not candidates for hair transplant surgery.
With the entire head shaved, Scalp MicroPigmentation is a look that is a bold statement of confidence. It looks natural even under close scrutiny. It creates the appearance of a close shave or a short buzz cut over the entire scalp and we expertly create a natural looking hairline, something that we have been doing with hair transplants for two decades. It is a permanent ‘concealer’ medically tattooed on the scalp with special pigments and an alternative to the topical daily applications of powders, fibers, and other cosmetic concealers (such as Toppik or DermMatch). SMP eliminates the hassle of frequent applications, messy transfer of product onto clothing, sheets, or pillow cases, and the anxiety of being in close contact with people.
