There is a multitude of hair loss solutions on the market, yet there is only one that’s guaranteed to give you a result. Scalp micropigmentation. Unlike a hair transplant or medicated treatments, it doesn’t come with the promise of promoting hair growth, it covers up the problem in hand – meaning it works. Sounds great? Well, it is… but how does the SMP magic happen and how is the cost for scalp micropigmentation calculated?
What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Also known by it’s abridged version, SMP, this innovative and ground-breaking treatment is one that is tailored to the individual’s needs. No two procedures are alike and each person that receives scalp micropigmentation is guaranteed to walk away with a result.
It works by a practitioner implanting a series of tiny pigmented dots underneath the outer layer of skin, which is called the Epidermis. They are administered using a machine fitted with a microneedle and once healed, the series of dots represent imitation hair follicles. The result is a maintenance-free look of the iconic buzz-cut, fresh from the barber’s chair, or in the case of diffuse thinning, gives the appearance of density.
How the Cost for Scalp Micropigmentation is Calculated
Hair Loss Extent
On initial consultation with any of our given clinics, first on the agenda will be evaluating current hair loss. This is done using the official and world-known classification system which is called the Norwood Scale for men and the Ludwig for women. It is a system where visible illustrations are used to guide the practitioner. In addition to evaluations of current hair loss is also a prediction for future loss.
Once the above has been examined, the next evaluation on your technician’s list will be the condition of the skin to be worked upon. Every client is unique, as is their particular skin physiology. Some will possess delicate or dry skin, others may have tougher tissue from scarring or blemishes. Each of these factors will be taken into consideration when providing the cost for scalp micropigmentation treatment.
Treatment Type Required
Pattern baldness will vary from client to client, as will treatment required for diffuse thinning. Scar concealment will always be an obvious best-fit solution as no blemish is identical. Evaluations need to be made to suit your own independent treatment. SMP is priced in relation to your particular treatment requirements and any modifications before, during or after the procedure will also alter the structure of costings.
