Scalp micropigmentation (SMP), also known as trichopigmentation, is a revolutionary cosmetic procedure performed to improve scalp look with the use of skin pigments. SMP allows to imitate a closely shaved scalp and may be incorporated in patient’s natural hair if a thicker hair effect is desired.
Who is a good candidate for SMP? Ideal SMP candidate is a person who does not have enough hair to cover the whole balding area with a transplant with a desired thickness. Patients with scalp scars after older hair transplant methods and other procedures can also minimize the visibility of scars. SMP is mostly used for the following groups:
- Scalp visibility after hair transplant
- Female type balding
- Shaved scalp effect
- Scar on scalp
- Other types of balding
