Because of its new and unique nature, scalp micropigmentation (SMP) has become a popular topic on our hair loss discussion forums. Although we personally believe the technique is highly specialized and ideally suited for a small, specific number of patients, hair loss sufferers remain continually interested in the procedure.
Because of this, dedicated hair restoration experts like Dr. William Lindsey, now regularly receive SMP requests from interested patients and started researching the procedure themselves. After investigating the SMP technique and procedure, Dr. Lindsey shared his input on our discussion forums:
Its important for the facts to get out there about SMP. One of my patients essentially thought you could “tattoo on a full head of hair” based on marketing they had seen elsewhere.
SMP will not replace medicine or surgery, but rather is another tool in the armamentarium against hair loss. So far, I think its really ideal for guys seeking scar concealment, and I’m hopeful that it will offer improvement for both thinning crowns (when there is limited donor hair likely to be used elsewhere) and possibly for female hair loss sufferers.
Like any tool, it will have its limitations; you can’t saw with a hammer for example, and its exciting to be on the forefront of this new technology.
Dr. William Lindsey
Dr. Lindsey’s reply both acknowledges some of SMP’s potential benefits while also recognizing its limitations, and we believe this type of analysis truly benefits patients!
