Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)

SMP is a non-surgical technique where a series of tiny dots are created on the scalp, concentrating on areas with the most visible hair loss. These mimic the very short hair and hide the baldness. This is kind of a camouflaging procedure and acts as a concealer to bald areas to ultimately give a full hair look.

This treatment can be done irrespective of your age, hair and skin color, and type of hair loss.

Why Go For Scalp Micropigmentation?

  • Following hair transplantation, SMP is used to achieve a fuller hair look.
  • In cases of scarring alopecia, alopecia areata.
  • In cases where hair transplantation is not possible.
  • To cover scars from previous surgeries/trauma over the scalp.
  • In patients who want to opt for no surgical method to achieve a fuller hair look.
  • In cancer patients who have experienced hair loss.
