When hair loss starts to be come an issue there will be several things that you might be considering:
- Just putting up with it
- Considering a hair transplant
- Considering Scalp Micro pigmentation (SMP)
With those choices, you probably want to weight up your options. So, we’ve noted the key differences for a Hair Transplant vs SMP.
Style or substance – It’s up to you!
Probably one of the main points to consider is whether or not you want to be able to style your hair, or go for a look that takes virtually no maintenance. For those who want a thick head of hair, and can’t let go, then a transplant will be the way forward. Providing there is adequate donor site to transplant hair from. However, if you have lost almost all of your hair then the chances are you won’t be able to have a hair transplant. This is because there will NOT be enough hair to transplant to the bald areas of your scalp.
For those who would prefer to have a style with little maintenance then SMP is a very good option. The secret to a great treatment is to make sure that the practitioner that you choose is skilled and qualified. The results of SMP in expert hands can be quite remarkable and virtually undetectable.

Which will be more effective?
Hair Transplant vs SMP- which is more effective? Hair transplants can be an excellent solution to baldness if, as we have said, you have a donor site that is viable. However, you should keep in mind that transplants can never be guaranteed to be 100% effective. Looking at the success likely after having SMP treatment, on the other hand, shows that it is just about 100% effective at undetectably covering hair loss – provided that it is done at a good clinic by an expert practitioner. Of course, you know that with SMP you will not be actually getting your hair back again. SMP could be described more accurately as a procedure that will cover-up hair loss or thinning. SMP can not give you a full head of hair. If that is your dream then you might consider transplant as the best option.
You will have to consider your budget, too. Having a hair transplant is going to be a lot more expensive than SMP. Plus, when you consider the risks of having no results and being left with scars it is difficult to risk that much money. SMP has guaranteed results so you can trust your money will be well spent, at a fraction of the cost!
It really boils down to what type of look you are going for and how deep your pockets are. There is also the consideration of how much maintenance you want to do to take care of your results.
Whatever you decide to do it is worth checking the practitioner you choose carefully, checking feedback and the experiences of other clients. At SKALP we are always happy to see prospective clients to talk over what they want to do and answer any questions that they have. One thing we can say is that if you decide to go for SMP you will be delighted with the results. Come and see us very soon!
