In my conversations with clients, I realized that they are very upset that they suffered from thinning hair in their youth, and they see the trend of hair loss day by day. Many medications, such as minoxidil, are used to prevent this hair loss and process, but for whatever reason, hair loss returns more severely after it is stopped. The use of drugs works intermittently, but after a while, it loses its effect and accelerates this process. Finally, after seeing the scalp on the Internet, they decide to try this method as a way to overcome their thinning hair without using medicine, but they are not aware of its advantages and disadvantages, and this makes them doubtful. Here we will end this doubt by examining the pros and cons of scalp micropigmentation:
People who have been trying to regrow their hair can understand what I mean by a frustrating process. Trying expensive and useless products with no proper results makes you disappointed after a while. Trying SMP is an alternative that releases you from all the previous chemicals and gives you a feeling of being free. You do not need to try Minoxidil and Toppik anymore.
A hair tattoo does not have any side effects. Unlike a hair transplant which comes with scars and hair loss on the back of your scalp.
Using medicine and shampoos is very costly and you have to buy those again and again which means you need to spend money more and more. Also, in comparison with hair transplants, SMP treatment is extremely cheap and cost-effective. Also, you do not need any aftercare products and you can keep your money in your pocket.
Right after the first session, you can find the difference between your scalp before SMP and after it. After the second session, you will get more than 80 percent of your final result and this means this procedure is fast and the result will appear after 2 weeks.
In the scalp micropigmentation process, the hair follicles are simulated with thousand of pokes that are done by the needle. These pokes cause tiny wounds that heal after a few days and this is a healing time. For example, you can imagine how long healing a needle wound takes on your hand.
One of the fantastic features of the hair tattoo or SMP is having no need the aftercare products. There are some simple limitations for the first week and after that, you can back to normal life with few limitations. Only swimming, steam room and tanning are not allowed for 28 days and all the other activities are allowed. You can take a look at aftercare on our page here.
With Full SMP, you can have a stylish shaved head look that makes you younger. This feeling retrieves your confidence when you are among your friends and family. Many people fearing of their feelings before doing the scalp micropigmentation but believe me, it is an awesome experience which increases your confidence.
Scalp micropigmentation lasts between 3 to 5 years. The pigments will not fall out on your scalp and depending on your skin type, they will be fading after a few years. On the other hand, you can upgrade and renew your SMP at an affordable price and always have a fresh look
One of the applications of hair tattoos is hiding the scars and imperfections on the skin whether these scars are created by surgery or Congenital.
Besides the awesome feeling of self-confidence, you might sometimes feel it is a tattoo on your scalp and not real hair. However, this is your feeling but others do not think like this and cannot recognize it. Do people think this is hair with Minoxidil or Toppik?
After the SMP you should avoid washing your head for 3 days and avoid excessive sweating for a week which prohibits you from any work-out for a week. In comparison to the other ways such as hair transplant, it is a very basic and simple post-care but still a drawback.
Another downside of SMP for baldness is having a fixed hairstyle. For people with baldness who want to do the SMP, only having a shaved head look is the only option. However, with baldness, there is no hairstyle, so I believe it should be counted as a limitation, not a drawback.
It should be noted that a hair tattoo is not permanent and lasts only 3-5 years. So, as a result, the fading will be starting one day. Despite regarding the aftercare could increase the longevity of the SMP, a touch-up for upgrading your scalp micropigmentation is needed after a few years.
