I came across your writing on SMP. I am a Norwood 5 – 6. Caucasian, fair skin blue eyes 63 years old. I decided against a hair transplant but would consider SMP. Can you tell me what the costs would be?
Are you planning of shaving your entire head? If so, the Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) procedure will cost $7,000 and will include up to 2 touch-ups in the first year. The process often takes one or two touch-ups, as early as 5 days after the first, and then a month or two for a second. The pigment can fade and become patchy, so touch-ups are important. For less than the entire head, costs can be about half that. For very small areas, even less.
The first procedure often takes 6 hours and the second procedure can take 3-4 hours, depending upon the fading. Anesthesia to minimize or obliterate the pain is recommended and included in the professional fee.
