Natural baldness and the medical condition alopecia can be stressful for some people. Hair loss is not an easy matter to deal with. Men for instance, worry about losing their hair and looking less attractive. Alopecia on the other hand, affects both genders and can be difficult especially for women to grapple. Losing your crowning glory causes severe decrease in self-confidence and increases insecurity amongst the people affected by it. There are a wide range of hair treatments and surgical procedures that one can undergo to regain their lost hair. However, there is one that particularly stands out these days. It’s scalp micro pigmentation.
What exactly is scalp micro pigmentation?
Scalp micro pigmentation or SMP is a procedure where your scalp is tattooed what will become your new hair. The pigments that are tattooed on your scalp will resemble the stumble on a newly shaved head. The procedure is non-invasive, minimising the risk of infections and complications unlike in surgical procedures.
What does Skalp’s scalp micro pigmentation do?
• Give the look of a full, youthful shaved head of cropped hair
• Simulate a full-front, side and/or rear hairline
• Restore hairlines on part-bald or fully bald heads

Scalp micro pigmentation is suitable for both men and women no matter how severe their balding or alopecia is. The difference can be easily noticeable and unarguably look way better than a normally shaved scalp or a head that has lost its hair due to alopecia. At Skalp, we carefully examine your skin tone and make sure that the colour of the pigment suits you well.
How does scalp micro pigmentation work?
After three sessions, you head will pretty much look like a normal shaved head with an improved hairline. How long the procedure takes will vary from person to person and the severity of hair loss. At Skalp, each session is for about 3-4 hours and requires a gap of one week in between sessions.
The scalp micro pigmentation procedure involves the use of needles to inject the pigments into your scalp, because of that, patients would normally experience slight discomfort but not excruciating pain. For those who have a low pain threshold Skalp advices patients to take an ibuprofen an hour before the session.
