Facing hair loss can take a massive toll on your confidence, whether you’re dealing with thinning hair, a receding hairline, scarring that’s resulted in bald spots or similar issues. But for so many people, surgical hair restoration isn’t a good fit – so instead, they give up on the dream of a full head of hair forever. However, an incredible alternative can completely transform your life without requiring you to ever go under the knife.
Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is the ultimate solution for hair loss, giving you an effective, non-surgical option for restoring the natural look of real hair follicles and stubble. This non-invasive procedure provides immediate and unrivaled results for men and women of all races and hair types. Often referred to as hair tattooing or ink-credible scalp micropigmentation, this versatile hair loss treatment conceals scars, bald spots, and receding hairlines using a specialized technique to create the appearance of a shaved head. When combined with complimentary hair styling, micropigmentation produces the illusion of a thick, full head of hair.
Male pattern baldness is often measured by the Norwood Scale, the most popular classification system for hair loss in men. When men start to lose their hair, they typically start to see a pattern over the course of many years. The Norwood Scale assesses the progression of hair loss on a scale of 1 to 7.
Female pattern baldness is often measured by the Ludwig Scale, the most popular classification system for hair loss in women. When women start to lose their hair, they typically start to see a pattern over the course of many years. The Ludwig Scale assesses the progression of hair loss on a scale of 1 to 3, Frontal and Advanced.
At the OM Studio, our skilled professionals utilize advanced equipment and techniques to perform the micropigmentation procedure. Depending on your hair type, specific concerns, and ideal results, the treatment is typically completed in a varying number of sessions. Because our team has been extensively trained in micropigmentation, they are well-prepared to tailor their technique to ensure that the achieved results align with your ideal vision.
The scalp micropigmentation hair restoration treatment involves applying pigment to the scalp utilizing tiny needles (similar to permanent makeup). During the process, the technician replicates the appearance of thousands of hair follicles for a natural-looking result. Our experienced technicians at OM Design Studio can recreate your hairline, conceal alopecia or scarring, enhance the density of naturally-thin or thinning hair, and more. The final results are virtually indistinguishable from real hair follicles and stubble.
Usually, you can expect to complete anywhere from 2 to 4 sessions for optimal results. Each session will be scheduled 10-20 days apart, giving your scalp time to heal and prepare for the next round of treatment. Each session’s actual length depends on your specific situation, though the average is between 2-4 hours. Once you have finished your scalp micropigmentation treatment, you won’t need to come back anytime soon. One of the most exciting parts of micropigmentation results is that they last for several years, looking just as excellent as they did on day one. Eventually, you may notice a very slight color fading, though there will be no discoloration. At that point, you can schedule a short touch-up appointment to freshen up your look and extend the life of your results.
Despite being a well-developed procedure that’s provided outstanding results for many people, scalp micropigmentation is a hair loss treatment that many people have never heard of before.
Here are just a few benefits of micropigmentation as a way to restore the appearance of your hair:
When you consider how invasive many traditional hair restoration procedures can be and that SMP offers an exciting alternative, it becomes clear that it is an incredible option to have within reach.
Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a non-surgical hair loss treatment that provides immediate and unrivaled results for men and women of all races and hair types. This innovative solution involves applying pigment to the scalp via ultra-small needles to replicate thousands of hair follicles, creating the illusion of a full head of hair. When administered by an experienced Master, SMP can easily restore hairlines, create the look of a buzz cut, add density to thin hair, and conceal scarring and alopecia. Typically completed in 1 to 2 sessions, SMP is the most affordable long-term hair loss solution that provides undetectable, instant and maintenance-free results.
Scalp micropigmentation should never be considered a one treatment process. Most clients can expect between 2-4 sessions to complete their treatment depending on the extent of hair loss or scarring. These treatments are usually spaced about 10-20 days apart.
The Scalp Micropigmentation treatment typically takes 2-4 hours per session depending on your degree of hair loss. Most clients can expect between 2-4 sessions to complete their treatment depending on the extent of hair loss or scarring. These treatments are usually spaced about 10-20 days apart.
After completion of your treatment (2-4 sessions) a client should expect the strength of the color to last 4-6 years. Over a longer term, a client will very gradually begin to notice slight lightening (not discolor) of the treatment. When this occurs they can undergo a brief “touch up” session to restore any fading and secure many more years of their style.
Scalp micropigmentation is non-invasive and requires no down time. In most cases, you will not need to take any extended time away from work, school, or other functions. After treatment it is common to notice slight redness on the scalp for 2-3 days post session. This redness subsides quickly and most clients return to work either right away or within a couple days. Clients are also allowed to wear hats or headwear should they feel the need.
Scalp Micropigmentation is a form of permanent cosmetics or permanent makeup. Often referred to as a cosmetic hair or scalp tattoo, this treatment typically lasts 4-6 years. After that time, a client may experience some slight fading, to which they can come back in for a quick touch up. This cosmetic solution will not wash off but can be tweaked as years go on. We always recommend meeting with our team of experienced expert practitioners to discuss your treatment options.
We recommend you try to avoid chlorinated pools, saunas, steam rooms, and tanning beds for 28 days post final scalp micropigmentation session.
We recommend no scrubbing, shampooing, or shaving over the treated area for 4-5 days after your scalp micropigmentation treatment.
Yes, those with gray hair can still benefit from the scalp micropigmentation procedure. First, most clients are recommended to cut their hair to a short buzzed length. We use a gray-scale pigment that can be adjusted in shade to blend with lighter hair tones. We simply create a lighter dilution for blending into the existing gray hairs.
We recommend no heavy sweating or intense exercise for 4-5 days after your scalp micropigmentation treatment.
