Scalp Micropigmentation Los Angeles

Scalp Micropigmentation also known as SMP for short is a medical grade tattoo where it creates the look of hair density, hair shading and hair simulation using special needles and pigments. SMP when done correctly can also be helpful for the concealment of scar revisions from either a FUSS procedure where a linear scar is left on the patients donor region or a scar from an accident.

SMP is a permanent concealer that stops the contrast between skin and hair color. This is more obvious in patients who are thinning where the lighter shade of their scalp tone or color is seen through over their darker hair color. For example a patient who has black or brown hair over white skin brings up the contrast and the thinness becomes more apparent.

What SMP is able to achieve is matching the skin tone to the hair color so there is less contrast hence creating the look and illusion of thicker and fuller hair. There are several options when it comes to SMP and they differ in technique.

. Hair Density

. Hair Simulation

. Hair Pointillism

. Scar Revision

Consult with your clinic of choice to see if SMP is right for you.
