SMP one of the most affordable hair loss treatments in the industry.
Hair Transplants can cost tens of thousands on the low-end, and many fail to look natural.
A lifetime supply of hair loss remedies, pills, or wig maintenance can cost a small fortune.
How much do you value your time?
SMP is a fraction of this cost, due to the fact it is permanent. You won't need constant maintenance like other solutions.
This can vary widely from person to person, so the best way to figure out your quote is to send photos or come in for your free consultation.
By all the Department of Environmental Health (DEH) standards, SMP is a tattoo.
However, the application and equipment used are far different.
Getting a normal scalp tattoo or hair tattoo is NOT RECOMMENDED!
We have seen many terrible outcomes from people trying to cut corners.
Multiple painful laser sessions before we could start our covering process to salvage.
Don't gamble with your appearance - go with the experts!
SMP is the insertion of pigment into the skin, therefore there can be some discomfort.
We use needles much smaller than traditional tattoos, and SMP doesn't penetrate the skin as far.
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the worst, most clients rate the pain to be 1-3.
The good news:
- It's much less painful than a traditional tattoo.
- The pain doesn't persist when you're not getting tattooed, so any breaks provide instant relief.
- Numbing cream can be used (as advised by a doctor) if you find SMP too painful.
SMP is meant to be a permanent solution to hair loss. However, it is possible that over the long-term (even with strict adherence to Scalp Symmetry's AfterCare Instructions) there may be some fading in your treatment.
Most people get 3-4 SMP sessions, and haven't needed another.
Your quote includes a free touch-up if you need.
After that, your touch-up rate is typically 20% of the original SMP price. That's the Scalp Symmetry Lifetime Guarantee.
The color of your hair is in the length of your hair. We are matching the hair follicle, and hair follicle colors are always on the greyscale.
Ever pulled a hair out? You may've seen the dark follicle on the end. Even if you have long hair, the follicles aren't the same color as your hair.
Therefore, we dilute our black pigment more or less depending on the strength of your existing follicles.
This effect provides thinning coverage to lengthy hair, and provides baldness masking for shaved hair.
This is a very common question, but a very uncommon scenario. Your practitioner will work with you to achieve the hairline that fits the age group you're striving for.
However, we understand that you may want to alter the appearance of your SMP in the future. Scalp Micropigmentation is easier to remove (via laser) than a traditional tattoo, as it doesn't penetrate as deep into the skin.
Contact Scalp Symmetry for any changes and we'll be happy to provide consultation/guidance.
Everyone's head has a certain level of shine to it. In some lighting it may look like your SMP is gone, but upon moving to other lighting it's completely visible.
A person with a close-cropped, full, healthy head of hair can be in unflattering lighting and appear to be balding. People expect to see your scalp shine when your hair is short, and if it doesn't it can start to look un-natural.
Your SMP practitioner can recommend topical products to help reduce oily skin, but it's important to keep in mind that the above will continue to hold true.
