Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP), is a cosmetic procedure wherein it replicates the look of hair follicles using pigments, similar to tattooing. The SMP artist creates small dots in the scalp to recreate the look of small hair follicles.
For men who are experiencing pattern or complete baldness, the procedure would result in a look resembling a short shaved hairstyle. For women and men, who are not experiencing complete baldness, the procedure would lessen the color contrast of the scalp and the hair, making the hair look fuller.
Scalp Micropigmentation does not only resolve hair loss problems, like balding and receding hairlines. The procedure also helps in covering scars and blemishes from surgeries and accidents. It also helps in blending birthmarks into the natural color of the hair.
A person undergoing Scalp Micropigmentation needs a series of 4 sessions to achieve the desired result. Each session usually lasts from 2-3 hours and is done every 7-10 days. However, the time still differs for each person; those people with full bald heads would take more time for their session.
Benefits of SMP
- Fast Procedure and Recovery
- Little to no maintenance
- Hides Imperfection
- No downtime
Pre-care for SMP
- Clean scalp – make sure that your scalp is washed and clean without build ups
- Avoid alcohol, coffee and certain foods that make the blood thinner
- Avoid working out – it causes excessive oil in the skin, which can affect pigment retention
Post-Care for SMP
You could have a shower three days after the treatment. Also, make sure you do not wash your hair until the end of the shower. Avoid hot baths and swimming in chlorinated water. It is suggested to only shower for 5 minutes to avoid too much steam. Direct contact with water can cause the pigment to fade.
- Avoid Direct Sunlight
UV lights can cause the pigments to fade. So, avoid sun exposure for at least four weeks after the procedure. If you are going out, make sure to wear a hat.
- Avoid Sweating
Sweat can affect the fading of the pigments. Avoid heavy workouts or activities that will make you sweat a lot.
- Do Not Scratch the Pigmented Area
Scabs and dry skin in the treated area are normal. Let it exfoliate naturally. Do not pick or scratch it because it might lead to scars, loss of color, and inconsistent results when healed.
THINGS TO CONSIDER
Just like any other medical procedure, there are things that you need to consider before deciding to undergo Scalp Micropigmentation:
The results of Hair Micropigmentation would usually last around 4-6 years. Regular touch-ups are necessary to avoid the ink from fading.
For men with patterned baldness, whatever hair that will grow should be continuously shaven.
No Change to Hairstyle/ Color
Hair Micropigmentation is similar to a tattoo. The color does not change, so the hair color might not match, especially as you grow older. It also restricts a person to change hairstyles. Certain hairstyles could expose the traces of the procedure.
Hair Micropigmentation might look like real hair, but it does not achieve the real texture that hair has.

Scalp Microneedling (Hair Growth Restoration)
Scalp Microneedling has been reported to be effective in reversing hair loss. It does this by stimulating blood flow, increasing the availability of cell nutrients, releasing vascular endothelial factor (VEGF), and upregulating fibroblast growth factor (FGF-7). When combined with home use of minoxidil products (such as Rogaine), the results are even further enhanced.
How does microneedling for Hair Growth works?
Natural hair growth is dependent on the genetic make-up of an individual to support the development of new hair cells. This cellular regeneration occurs within the hair follicles, which are the tiny openings that cover the scalp. A combination of chemicals is required to trigger the production of these cells, including a very important factor called the human growth factor.
Microneedling therapy is designed to trigger the targeted production of this human growth factor. When the micro needles are pricked into the scalp, it causes superficial and minor wounds to the tissue surface. This prompts the body to set the mechanism in motion for skin regeneration in the area of the wound. Human growth hormone and related growth chemicals are released in this process.
How is it done?
We use a single-use disposable micro-needle cartridge which enables the technician to adjust depth and speed of the device depending on the application and area being treated. As the micro-needles make small punctures into the region of the scalp where hair loss occurs, the body begins to respond by producing growth factors. These growth factors are a natural part of healing in all of us. Based on scientific studies, the combination of these growth factors along with a regular home application of Minoxidil 5%, the client will see much more hair growth over just Minoxidil treatment alone.
How quickly will I see result?
Just like with any other treatment, this is really dependent on each person. We have had clients report hair regrowth after even just a couple of sessions, but based on the amazing results from clinical studies, we do recommend a series of 12 treatments to be done once a week.
With zero downtime and no incisions, scalp microneedling for hair loss is easy, pain-free and convenient. There’s no need to take time off work or plan for an extensive recovery. A typical treatment session takes about 30 minutes. We can have you in and out of the office during your lunch hour.

It’s normal to lose up to 100 strands of hair per day as part of the normal hair growth cycle, Under normal circumstances, every strand grows for a few years, “rests” for a few months, and then sheds, before a new strand sprouts from the same follicle. If the growing phase is interrupted, you can start to lose strands at a faster rate and notice hair thinning.
There are many possible causes of hair thinning, so you may have to touch base with a doctor to understand the cause of your concern, whether it’s reversible, and if so, how to treat it. Most commonly, one of the following issues is to blame for the thinning of hair.
Here are some of the most common causes of hair loss:
- Androgenetic alopecia is hereditary hair loss also known as male or female pattern baldness.
- Alopecia areata is an immune-related condition that can create patchy areas of hair loss or more diffuse hair loss.
- Telogen effluvium is thinning of hair that occurs several months after a stressful event, which can include a physical or emotional shock.
- Traction alopecia is hair loss that usually results from excessive hairstyling, especially styles that pull your hair tight, such as cornrows or tight ponytails, or possibly hair extensions.
- Hormonal changes related to pregnancy or menopause can cause hair thinning.
- Medical conditions such as thyroid problems or anemia can also contribute.
- Taking certain medications, such as those used to treat cancer, arthritis, depression, heart issues, and high blood pressure can contribute to hair thinning as well.
- Poor nutrition and deficiencies, such as in folic acid, protein, or iron, can play a role.
Hair loss can significantly change an individual’s appearance and have a huge impact on their overall self-confidence.
Over-the-counter products promising to restore hair often fall short and can cause troublesome side effects. Fortunately, scalp microneedling offers men and women a non-invasive hair restoration solution that stimulates natural hair growth.
Improper care of your scalp can affect your hair health.
Genetics, diet, and hormones determine the texture of your hair but the care that you put in helps you get a healthy and lustrous mane.
