SMP for Women

Poor hair growth and a see-through scalp can be embarrassing for women. A hair transplant may be difficult or impossible with thinning hair.

Scalp MicroPigmentation is a medically-refined hair tattoo that hides the appearance of thinning hair. SMP is a great alternative for women who are not good candidates for hair transplant surgery, but who want the look of a fuller head of hair.

Speak to a Doctor

What is Scalp MicroPigmentation?

SMP is an innovative, non-surgical procedure that is different from a traditional tattoo. An extremely fine medical-grade needle is used to apply the ink to the skin. During your SMP consultation, the doctor will determine the ink color to ensure it matches your hair, ethnic background, and age.

The best part about SMP is the speed with which you see results, much like a permanent makeup procedure. Because there is no hair to regrow, patients often see a difference in their appearance after only one session.

Can SMP Help You Appear to Have Thicker Hair?

SMP can help create the look of a fuller head of hair. However, to ensure that SMP is the best solution, we want to know the cause of the hair loss or hair thinning.

Women may have balding due to many medical conditions, and we diagnose them prior to offering SMP. As ethical physicians, we want to be sure we do not perform this process on women who have potentially reversible baldness from hormonal causes, thyroid issues, or autoimmune diseases.

Does It Look Real?

SMP blends in with the thinning to balding areas on the scalp. Although there is nothing in this world that is “perfect”, with the artistry and technique we use, you cannot tell that that someone has had SMP even up close.

Our physicians work with patients to help obtain the look they want. Most clients want a soft, natural hairline, while some prefer a more distinct and linear look.

While photos on our site are great examples, seeing the results of an SMP procedure up close is incredibly valuable. Most of our clients do not mind sharing their experience or letting you examine their results in person. We normally have at least one client who has had SMP done at our scheduled monthly Open House events.
