How does it work
SMP technique is based on tattooing. It is a much refined mode of cosmetic pigmentation. The treatment is non invasive and it does not require any medication. Micro needles are used by well trained artists to implant the pigments into the scalp. These pigments replicate the hair follicles. It is an ideal solution for receding hairline and camouflaging a bald patch. SMP can also cover any scars caused by transplantation. People who have gone completely bald can get a buzz cut look with the help of SMP.
Once the procedure is complete you are good to go for five to six years. Even after five to six years, you do not have to undergo the process again and only touch ups are needed to freshen up the look. SMP does not impose any restrictions on you and there is no need for special maintenance. This procedure produces natural looking results. SMP is ideal to treat any type of hair loss whether caused by Alopecia Areata, cancer, male and female pattern baldness or thinning of hair.
Risks of SMP
SMP is a very safe procedure because it is non invasive. SMP is not as painful as traditional tattooing. A numbing agent is applied to the scalp to avoid any pain. Though there may be some discomfort depending on your tolerance.
There can be some minor side effects after the procedure such as redness of the scalp, itching and swollen nodes but these go away in a few days without any treatment. Allergy may be caused by use of non sterilized equipment by an inexperienced artist. But all these risks are avoidable. So always visit a reputable clinic with trained artists to get the best results.
