During the SMP procedure, a trained practitioner will use a special machine to deposit pigment into the scalp in a pattern that mimics the look of short, shaved hair. The pigment is injected into the outer layer of the skin (upper layer of the dermis) and is designed to fade over time, so touch-ups may be necessary to maintain the desired effect.
SMP can be an effective treatment option for men with male pattern baldness, but it’s important to keep in mind that it is a cosmetic procedure and may not be suitable for everyone. In some cases, SMP may not provide a natural-looking result, and the pigment may fade unevenly over time. It’s important to speak with a trained SMP practitioner to determine if SMP is a suitable option for your specific situation. They can assess the extent of your hair loss and discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure with you.
