Despite the widespread adoption of scalp micro pigmentation cost, real concerns remain. We’ll go over the critical questions of what you need to know and how to go through the process.
1.Does the procedure hurt?
It’s a fair question as it’s about poking the color through the scalp. It is important to know that there are some discomforts, but it mainly depends on your pain tolerance. Acne and psoriasis should avoid SMP as it is difficult to apply pigmentation to flared skin. The amount and number of treatments also depend on the scalp affected. For best results, the SMP is done two or three times as the process involves applying layers of paint. For treatments, it is important not to go to the swimming pool, use a sauna or steam room, or take a hot shower as this can cause a steam storm that attacks the pigment. Also, avoid exposing your scalp to direct sunlight for the first four days. Avoid strenuous exercise for a week, steam and sauna for a month, and keep the scalp hydrated for four days after the final treatment.
2. Cost and Risk Involved
The process typically costs $ 400 to $ 1,000, depending on the severity. Although semi-permanent, it takes up to eight years as the skin naturally exfoliates and causes discoloration. As with any other form of tattoo, there is a risk of allergies and reactions to certain parts of the skin. Since SMP does not require formal training, due diligence should be carried out with reputable professionals.
3. SMP is fully Effective
Unlike other hair loss options, scalp micropigmentation is 100% effective and works for everyone. This is a big sigh of relief as many topical medications or pills/foams only work on 510% of the people who actually use them on a daily basis. Micropigmentation is a cosmetic treatment that gives the look of a short haircut to anyone battling hair loss.
4. You can Choose your Hairline

• You can choose to recreate your naturally imperfect hairline or choose a straighter, more modern style. During the first session, you can discuss the changes and concerns with your artist. and adjust the style as you go. In the second or third session, the final hairline takes shape.
5. Avoid Alcohol and Blood Thinners Before your Session
Together with alcohol, some non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin are classified as blood thinning.
6. You Can Grow Your Hair Out
The micropigmentation of the scalp is designed to simulate the appearance of a heavily shaved head. To maintain the look, you need to shave your natural hair frequently. However, if for any reason you prefer to have your natural hair regrowth, then you can. The pigment is placed around existing hair follicles, not inside them, to create a fuller look where hair isn’t present. We will always recommend keeping your hair short for a more uniform look, but in the end, it is your decision.
7. Scalp Micropigmentation is Permanent
SMP is considered a permanent solution to hair loss. No need to apply creams daily or make monthly maintenance appointments.
