Scalp micro-pigmentation (SMP) is an alternative hair loss treatment where individuals suffering from an advanced degree of baldness undergo special scalp pigmentation treatments (much like a tattooing process) to create the look of a full head of closed cropped hair. Furthermore, hair loss sufferers who have already undergone a follicular unit transplantation procedure can utilize scalp micro-pigmentation to camouflage the resulting “strip scar.”
Dr. Rassman reminds patients that although the results of a well designed scalp micro-pigmentation procedure are impressive, hair must be kept short unless the patient is planning on a hair transplant to cover the pigmented scalp. Additionally, Dr. Rassman states that undergoing a micro-pigmentation procedure will not affect the usage of hypothetical, future treatments like hair cloning.
Because scalp micro-pigmentation has remained a “hot topic” on our Hair Loss Discussion Forums for a number of years, it’s exciting to see established hair restoration surgeons researching, practicing, and offering this minimally invasive technique.
