What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

SMP is the process by which small deposits of organic ink are tattoed onto the top layer of the scalp to replicate hair follicles.

Testimonial

“After exhausting all my options with hair loss restoration such as Hair Transplants, Potions and Lotions, I was finally introduced to the Scalp Renew process by Christina. To be honest, I was very skeptical and hesitant but I was unhappy with my thinning hair and was willing to gave it a try.

After my first appointment, I was still not convinced it was the right solution for me. However, on completion of the entire process, I was ELATED with the outcome. SMP has given me the look of density that hair transplants could never do, and of course, without any of the pain! It has also given me confidence to go out and be my youthful, outself self. I no longer have to style my hair a certain way because every day is a good hair day. 

I encourage guys who are struggling with the anxiety of hair loss to gave it a try you will NOT regret it! Thank you Christina for your gentle touch and caring hands!”

The Process

Step #1: Consult

We will have a conversation that will determine if you are a candidate for SMP. If approved, you will be able to ask questions to fully understand the process, know what to expect during the procedure, and aftercare healing process. Lastly, we will determine the scale of the procedure and the cost. From here, you are free to choose if SMP is for you. Book your “new you” appointment.

Step #2: dESIGN

Hairline design is an art onto itself. Good hairline design is about creating balance.  During a collaborative time between client and artist, we will design your hairline, create custom ink colour based on your skin tone, and analyze scar tissue areas.

Step #3: PROCEDURE

Based on your individual needs, we go through the process of inserting small deposits of organic ink to the top layer of the dermis. This will create the visual effect of a natural hairline and thicker hair density. This procedure may require up to four two-hour sessions, six days apart.

Step #4: AFTER-CARE

We’ve created a specific after-care protocol for our clients which they must follow after the treatment and even later. Depending on your job, clients can return to work by the next day.  Many things affect the amount of time it will take for one’s head to fully heal following SMP. By following our after-care procedures carefully, you can reduce the amount of time it takes to heal to the bare minimum.

FAQs

About Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP). About Scalp Renew. And lots more.

What is SMP?
Scalp micropigmentation or (SMP), is a highly specialized technique of applying micro-insertions of pigment into the scalp, to mimic the appearance of natural hair follicles. It is considered a “cosmetic” procedure. SMP creates the 3D illusion of hair. Scalp Micropigmentation works for most degrees of hair loss, and is an ideal cosmetic solution for men and women of all ages and skin types.

Our cosmetic micropigmentation methods are precise, combine a high degree of artistic skill, and thorough understanding of skin and color. Every client is a unique canvas. Scalp Renew customizes each hair restoration procedure to create a completely natural looking result. From your initial consult, through your completed service, our scalp micropigmentation process will restore your confidence – and a more youthful appearance.

Is SMP noticeable?
Scalp micropigmentation is an effective hair loss solution because of its consistently natural and undetectable results. This procedure seamlessly replicates each individual hair follicle and natural hair pattern to create a perfect match for each client. Only very close inspection will reveal that that the hair follicles are actually pigments.
How long does an smp procedure take?

Scalp micropigmentation is based on individual consultation and should not be considered a one treatment process. Most clients can expect between 2-4 sessions to complete their treatment. It is dependent on the extent of hair loss to be replicated or scarring to be covered. Treatments are usually spaced about 7-14 days apart.

HOW MUCH IS THE TREATMENT IN CANADA?

Treatment cost varies depending on the degree of hair loss. The Norwood Scale is a simple visual representation to help identify hair loss stages as well as different types of receding hairlines. It displays the rate and way in which hair loss evolves in men. The Ludwig scale is what is used for Women. Treatment ranges from $2000-$5000 in most cases.

How painful is SMP?

SMP is considered a form of cosmetic or paramedical tattooing. It is generally well tolerated by most individuals with minimal discomfort. On a pain factor scale of 1-10, most clients agree to 3 out of 10.  Women and men who have scarring from hair transplants will often experience more discomfort due to sensitivity of the area, but is not nearly as painful as a tattoo.

How much down-time will I have?

Scalp micropigmentation is non-invasive and requires no down time. In most cases, you will not need to take any extended time away from work, school, or other functions. After treatment it is common to notice redness on the scalp for 2-3 days post session. This redness subsides and most clients return to work either right away or within 48 hours. Clients are also allowed to wear clean headwear should they feel the need.

Will the pigment turn blue over time?

The pigment will never turn blue or green. Scalp micropigmentation is a form of permanent cosmetics, but unlike tattooing or permanent makeup, the pigment is designed to replicate the same color spectrum of natural hair. The pigment contains no additional colorants or additives and will only lighten, not discolor over an extended time.
