Frequently asked questions Micro hair Pigmentation SMP

Does it really look natural?

SMP hair pigmentation can look very natural if done properly by an experienced and specialized practitioner.

It is important that the pigments are adapted to the color, shape and style of your own hair and that the pigment dots are applied as small and fine as possible.
Also, the hairline should not be set too low or too tight, but should have natural variations and irregularities.

If these factors are taken into account, SMP hair pigmentation can produce a realistic result that is indistinguishable from real hair.

SMP hair pigmentation can also be used to soften failed hair transplants and scars.

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure in which hair follicles are moved from a donor area to a bald or thin spot.

This can lead to complications such as infections, rejection, unnatural results, or scarring of the donor or recipient area3.
A common type of scar is the fue scar, which is created after a follicular unit extraction (fue), in which the hair follicles are removed one by one with a small drill. Another type of scar is the fut scar, which occurs after a follicular unit transplant (fut), in which a strip of skin with hair follicles is cut away and divided into smaller pieces.
Hair pigmentation can make these scars less visible by coloring them with pigments that match the color of your own hair. This reduces the contrast between the skin and hair and creates the illusion that there is more hair on the scar area.
Hair pigmentation can also be used to increase the density of the hair after a hair transplant that has not provided sufficient coverage.

Who is SMP hair pigmentation suitable for?

SMP hair pigmentation is suitable for people, men and women, who suffer from:

Thinning hair: Darkening the skin creates an optical illusion of more hair. This does not work with long hair.
Complete baldness: by creating the illusion of a shaved head ('shaven look').
Partial baldness: for example, to eliminate inlets, rejuvenate the hairline, cover the crown, etc.
Scars on the head: for example after a hair transplant, an accident, an operation, or an illness.
Hair loss in alopecia areata (patchy baldness): to camouflage the bald spots..

What are the benefits of SMP hair pigmentation?

SMP hair pigmentation has several advantages over other treatments for hair problems, such as:

It is a safe and hygienic treatment that meets the legal requirements for tattoos and (semi)permanent make-up1.
It is an affordable treatment that costs less than a hair transplant or other surgical procedures.
It is a quick and easy treatment that requires little to no recovery time.
It is a natural and realistic treatment that is adapted to the color, shape and style of your own hair.
It is a durable treatment that lasts a long time and can be updated over time..

What is the difference between injection needles and SMP hair pigmentation needles?

The difference between injection needles and SMP hair pigmentation needles is that injection needles are intended to inject liquids or medicines

into the body, while SMP hair pigmentation needles are intended to apply pigments into the skin.
Injection needles are usually thicker and longer than SMP hair pigmentation needles, because they have to penetrate deeper into the tissue. SMP hair pigmentation needles are finer and shorter, because they only reach the top layer of the skin. The pigments used for SMP hair pigmentation are also different from the dyes used for tattoo or permanent make-up..

is SMPhair pigmentation a good solution to repair a failed hair transplant?

SMPhair pigmentation can be a good solution to repair a failed hair transplant,

depending on the situation. SMP hair pigmentation can be used to camouflage scars, for example after a FUT hair transplant. It can also be used to fill in areas where the hair transplant has failed, creating a more natural and fuller look.

SMP hair pigmentation is a cosmetic procedure in which micro-dots of pigment are applied to the scalp to create the illusion of hair stubble. It is a quick, painless and relatively inexpensive treatment that gives a natural-looking result. It can also be combined with other treatments such as hair transplantation or medication.

To recover a failed hair transplant with SMP hair pigmentation, you should consult a reputable mhp practitioner with experience. They can assess your situation and recommend the best course of action. You need to prepare your scalp by shaving and cleansing it. The SMP practitioner uses a fine needle to apply the pigment to the scalp. They will carefully match the pigment to your natural hair color and skin tone. You must allow time for healing and schedule follow-up appointments to achieve the desired result.

As a customer, how can you distinguish between SMP providers and real SMP SPECIALISTS?

Experience and Training: A qualified SMP specialist will typically have training in hair pigmentation

and possibly other relevant fields such as dermatology or hair transplantation. They should be experienced enough and may be able to show you references or before and after photos from previous clients.

Certification: See if the specialist has relevant certifications. While there is no specific certification for SMP, for example, they may have a certificate from a recognized training institution for cosmetic tattooing or medical micropigmentation.

Portfolio: Ask for a portfolio with examples of their work. An experienced specialist will be proud of their previous results and can show you photos of clients they have treated. See if their style and the quality of their work match what you're looking for.

Customer Feedback: Read customer reviews and feedback. This can give you an idea of others' experiences with the specialist. Online reviews or testimonials on the specialist's website can provide useful information.

Consultation: Schedule a consultation with the specialist before booking a treatment. During the conversation you can ask questions about their working method, the materials used and the results you can expect. A good specialist will take the time to answer your questions and put you at ease.
