What is SMP?
SMP stands for Scalp Micro Pigmentation. It is a method of depositing pigment into the dermal layer of the skin on the scalp, which replicates hair follicles. When viewed from a few inches or further away, the pigment dots appear as hair follicles and the client has the appearance of a full head of recently shaved hair. SMP is color matched on a gray scale for most clients and can be used to treat clients of very pale complexion to extremely dark skin tones. Pigment changes also allow HIS to treat clients with red hair, blonde hair or older clients who have much gray or white hair. Normally, SMP is applied over the course of two to five treatments, at one of our clinics, with each treatment lasting 15 minutes to four hours depending upon prior hair loss.
