Scalp Micropigmention (SMP)
Is this a procedure for women as well as men? You probably know about microblading to get a fuller brow, well this works the same way but for your scalp. Some women have thinning hair at the temples or crown, we can add color to the scalp so it appears you have more hair.
Should I shave my head or get SMP? This is a very personal decisions - shaving your head has become very popular and shaving your head doesn't mean you need to look bald. SMP allows you to look clean and updated without looking like you lost your hair.
Do I need to shave my head after SMP? You want to maintain the look of the buzz cut, to keep that look you will need to shave two - three times a week. We recommend making it part of your morning routine a few times a week.
How do I know what color SMP to ask for? The pigment we use is called Folicule. This diluted black, organic, carbon-based pigment. When hair is shaved it is all a tone of grey and we can dilute the black to match you, it's about matching in either a strong tone or a softer tone.
Do I need to stay out of the sun? No. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. They also recommend a sunscreen that’s water resistant so it can last longer. Because the sun has UV rays this will help your SMP fade faster and that means it's even more important to protect your SMP and a hat and/or sunscreen is going to be your best protection.
