What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a treatment option that allows areas of hair on the head that are thinning or have been lost completely to be restored in appearance. This  means that the hair does not grow back itself but the scalp is pigmented to look like there is hair.  A london based clinic providing scalp micropigmentation can help to create the appearance of hair in everything from mild to extreme cases of hair loss.

As with any type of hair restoration surgery, what is good about scalp micropigmentation is that it can be used on both men and women. However, as with all surgical hair restoration procedures, there can be some side effects. Some patients report an allergic reaction to the fat transfer material that is sometimes used in conjunction with the pigment; others complain of redness or soreness for several days following the procedure. This is why it is important to use a professional Scalp Micropigmentation London company for this procedure.

In general though a  company will carry out any allergy testing that needs to be done in advance and customers generally report very little discomfort or issues following the procedure. What they do note though is how good they feel having the appearance of hair again and how this has an incredibly positive impact on their confidence and the way that they feel about themselves. In the past the impact that hair loss has on someone’s mental state has often been under-reported and we now know how important this can be to a person’s overall wellbeing and their state of mental wellbeing as well.
