What is Scalp MicroPigmentation?
Scalp MicroPigmentation, or SMP as it is commonly known, is not just a regular hair tattoo but a highly specialized process during which tiny deposits of pigment are positioned within the dermal layer of the skin. When applied by a skilled practitioner, these deposits replicate the look of shaven hair. Our SMP treatments are as flexible as you need them to be. Typically, our clients are able to specify the shape of their frontal hairline and side profiles, request a defined or super-soft "broken" hairline, opt for a more receded look or use lighter pigments for a softer look overall. SMP is intended to create the style you always wanted, and our practitioners are fully trained to cater for all requirements including treatments for white, Hispanic, black and Asian skin tones. SMP by THE Medical Spa is a permanent solution for hair loss. All that is required of the recipient is that they keep their hair cut to the right length using standard hair clippers, an electric face shaver or razor. The length that the hair should be cut to is solely dependent upon the extent of the clients hair loss. We also recommend that all clients keep their skin healthy and hydrated by regularly moisturizing their scalp. A short touch-up session may be required for some clients from time to time, however in such cases, these sessions are usually at least five years apart.
What is the process?
All clients are invited to participate in a free consultation session with a member of our team. In most cases these consultations are conducted face to face, however for clients who are based overseas or for those who may find it difficult to travel to our facility, consultations can be completed via email or Skype if preferred. During your consultation, you have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you desire, and advice will be provided that is specific to your own individual circumstances. It is important to note that your consultation is completely without obligation, and is conducted in a friendly, informal manner at all times. Should you choose to proceed with treatment, either at the end of your consultation or when you have had time to consider your options, we will arrange mutually suitable dates, and times for your treatment sessions. The majority of treatments are completed within 2-3 sessions, however additional sessions may be required depending on your circumstances. All quotations are fixed, therefore if more sessions are needed than originally anticipated, no additional fee is payable.
Can SMP conceal scars, alopecia and other imperfections?
Absolutely, yes. Many of our clients have acquired scars and skin blemishes during their lifetime that they wish to conceal. This includes strip and FUE scars caused by hair restoration surgery, other surgical scars, accident-related scars and other imperfections such as burns or skin conditions. Scalp MicroPigmentation is commonly used to conceal alopecia areas, however other forms such as alopecia totalis and traction alopecia are also straightforward to camouflage using SMP. When treating alopecia our aim is to provide the client with peace of mind and renewed confidence, regardless of whether or not the real hair returns.

A REAL LIFESTYLE CHANGE
For many of our clients, they come to us following years of feeling inadequate, unattractive or old before their time. We've treated clients who had lost their entire head of hair by the time they were in their early twenties. People who have been victims of ridicule, abuse and low self-esteem when they should have been enjoying the best years of their lives. We've treated men who have spent thousands on hair loss pills, only to suffer side effects including erectile dysfunction and poor sex drive. Then there are the clients who, in order to feel comfortable with their appearance, wear hair systems or concealers to hide their hair loss.
