SMP BY SMP OXFORD is a hair loss treatment that benefits people experiencing problems such as balding, scarring, receding hairlines, and thinning hair. Characterised by its non-invasive nature and its administration of pigmentation, many liken it to a scalp tattoo, or wonder how it is different from microblading. After all, needles are involved and pigmentation is injected beneath the surface of the skin to alter its colour.
However, tattoo parlours and microbladers definitely cannot perform a scalp micropigmentation procedure safely. Tattoos are recreational, and microblading is a manual procedure meant to recreate the appearance of eyebrow hairs. The skin beneath your eyebrows is thinner than the skin on your scalp, and as a result, calls for different instruments and expertise.
Your scalp requires a qualified practitioner, like those at Scalp Micropigmentation Company - trained to operate an electronic tattoo instrument that will deposit small dots of pigment beneath the skin’s surface. This pointillism technique replicates the appearance of hair follicles, darkening the scalp’s surface and creating the illusion of more hair.
This procedure can be used to replenish a receding hairline, provide the appearance of a buzz cut, or fill in areas of thinning hair. Because of the diversity of its application and its natural appearance, many consider scalp micropigmentation to be a great solution for hair loss.
As with many cosmetic procedures, your SMP BY SMP OXFORD journey will begin with a specialist consultation at Scalp Micropigmentation Company. Everyone’s skin is different, so to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure, you will meet with your practitioner who will evaluate your condition and what you hope to get out of the process. Generally, unless you suffer from advanced psoriasis, acne, or keloid development on your scalp, you will likely be considered eligible.
Your practitioner will operate an electronic microneedle to deposit miniscule dots of pigment under the epidermal level of your skin. These pigments will sit beneath the skin’s surface, looking just like strong, dark hair follicles. Those who are bald will appear as if they shave their heads, and thinning hair will seem thicker because the contrast between the hair and scalp has lessened.
In order to achieve these results, be prepared to attend several multi-hour sessions. The amount of time needed to complete an individual round of treatment will depend on your specific requirements. For example, those wishing to create the appearance of a frequently shaved head will take longer than someone hoping to hide patches of thinning hair or scars because there is more surface area to cover.
While patients generally attend two or three sessions to complete their treatment, the number ultimately depends on your skin’s characteristics and the individual treatment plan discussed with your practitioner. Some patients may find that pigment naturally fades quickly under their skin, or that the presence of scarring has scattered the pigment. These situations will require more sessions to achieve the same result as others. Typically, the procedure is completely finished when bald spots are concealed and it is difficult to distinguish between the pigmented skin and your hair.
Following the completion of each session, it is important that you allow time for your scalp to heal, so as to avoid irritation and to foresee how the pigment will settle. Ten days between sessions should be sufficient, although you may require fewer days between your first and second session. After each set of treatment, your scalp will be recovering, so it is expected that you do not irritate or wet the scalp in any way for the next three days. This includes washing your head and sweating.
After 30 days, you will be able to proceed with your normal routine, but this time, with confidence, because your SMP BY SMP OXFORD journey is complete! Regarding long-term care, it is advised that you combine excessive time spent outdoors with a healthy dose of SPF to keep your skin moisturised, as frequent sunburns can accelerate the fading of pigments. While scalp micropigmentation is a permanent procedure, you can expect the pigments to become duller after three to five years. At this point, you can return for more sessions to touch up.
There are numerous benefits to scalp micropigmentation compared to other hair loss procedures, among them being cost and safety. Scalp micropigmentation can cost less than €1,000 for the entire process, and is non-invasive, so your skin is not damaged. Meanwhile, a hair transplant, which is a surgical procedure wherein small incisions are made in the scalp, can cost €8,000 or more. In this case, you are paying not only for new hair, but also for local anaesthetic, sedation, and a brand new scar on the back of your head.
However, if money or surgical concerns are not an issue, another advantage to scalp micropigmentation is that it is easily compatible with other hair loss treatments. If you already have a hair transplant and wish to enhance its effects or cover residual scarring from the procedure, scalp micropigmentation is a viable option.
One of the greatest benefits to SMP BY SMP OXFORD is the sheer number of problems it can solve for a large variety of individuals. There are few people who are not good candidates, and many reasons to want treatment. As mentioned previously, this procedure is useful for those who experience balding, scarring, receding hairlines, and thinning hair. This includes people experiencing hair loss from genetics, alopecia, thyroid issues, HIV, lupus, cancer treatments, and burn injuries – a wide range of distressing issues that can be, ameliorated, if only slightly, by scalp micropigmentation.
A final, but no less notable, advantage to receiving scalp micropigmentation is your self-esteem. Men and women from all walks of life experience hair loss, and this process offers patients the opportunity to rid themselves of the undeserved anxiety that accompanies such loss. With today’s technology and the expertise of Scalp Micropigmentation Company, you have the ability to control the uncontrollable, and more importantly, to feel like yourself again.
