What is Scalp micropigmentation?
You may have heard of microblading for fuller brows- but did you know there’s a similar practice, scalp micropigmentation (SMP), that creates the illusion of growing hair?
While microblading is typically done with a manual blade, micropigmentation is performed using an electric tattoo device. This allows for more power to penetrate the skin on your scalp which can be thicker than under your eyebrows where you would have typical eyebrow tattoos.
The goal of SMP isn’t to create hairlike lines as you would when microblading eyebrows, but instead to use tiny, layered dots in different hues of black. This style is referred to as pointillism and can be done for natural-looking depth and definition, with a skilled practitioner trying make the dots look like they are coming from your scalp or mustache hair follicles.
This process may be useful for people who experience all forms of hair loss.
This includes folks with:
- thinning hair
- male and female pattern baldness
Once you’ve done your research and sought out a responsible, skilled SMP artist (AKA MP Cosmetic Beauty), you have an initial consultation. During this meeting, our practitioner will prep you for what to expect and how you should prepare beforehand.
Who is not suited for the procedure?
For people with acne or other skin sensitives like psoriasis, they should avoid getting SMP during a breakout. If you’re prone to keloids which are more common in darker skin, then you may not be eligible for this service at all regardless of whether your breakouts have cleared up.
THE ScaLp micropigmentation PROCESS
The SMP procedure is typically divided into a few sessions, with 5-7 days in between each appointment to allow for the pigment time to settle and fade. This allows an artist another opportunity to evaluate placement, shade, and density of color so as to create realistic layering effects.
Most of our clients require 2-3 sessions but it all depends on your specific case.
We use ink that is formulated with the highest quality biocompatible ingredients. This means that aggressive fading, a common side effect of treatments by other providers, will not happen when you get your procedure with us! In addition to this benefit alone, additional sessions may increase the density or number of dots in one area for darker and more natural looking results.
For those who have scars, they are likely to need more sessions because of how the scar tissue absorbs ink. This will result in a greater degree of fading over time than if you had no scaring at all!
Treatments on clients with Alopecia may still be completed after 2-3 sessions. However, the sessions are likely to be longer, especially if you’re suffering from aggressive Alopecia Areata or patchy hair loss.
Touch Up Visits should be done 30-45 days after.
Does scalp micropigmentation hurt?
Scalp Micropigmentation requires a small needle to be inserted into the upper dermis of your scalp. A certain amount of discomfort is inevitable, but most people report that it feels like nothing more than mildly irritating even therapeutic pain and some parts may feel sensitive such as in temporal regions or hairline areas.
Additionally, some people experience more discomfort than others, and people who have used hair systems for a long period of time, or have a significant amount of scar tissue to cover, are also may experience a higher pain level. Pain can be minimized with an over-the-counter painkiller before each session as well as with the application of numbing products.
The procedure will leave you with some redness and itching for days to come. Your hair color may look a few shades darker at first, but it should lighten up in one-seven days (rarer cases can take 14). Bruising is also possible so the area might be bruised or blue. After about 10% of people have experienced this type of bruising though, their bruises usually go away after just a day or two!

7 DAY AFTER CARE
- Be careful of the healing pigmented area and don’t touch it with your fingers, as they may have bacteria on them.
- No Rogaine for 30 days after your procedure
- Apply your favorite antibiotic ointment or Vaseline 3-5 times daily until the procedure area has healed. Always use a clean cotton swab and not your fingertips to avoid bacteria that can enter deep into wounds and cause more harm than good.
- No make-up, sun, soap, sauna or Jacuzzi for 10 days. Swimming in chlorine pools is a no-go and contact with animals should be avoided as much as possible post procedure. Avoid gardening until the area has completely healed to avoid recontamination.
- Do not rub or scratch your scalp.
- Use a “total sun block” after the procedure area has healed to prevent future fading of pigment color on scalp.
- Before bathing, gently apply a light coating of Vaseline on the procedure area using a clean cotton swab. Continue this regime until the procedure has completely healed.
- Do not use products that contain AHA’s on the procedure area. Example: Glycolic, Lactic Acids. Always check your product labeling as it can be used to fade pigment!
- You may not give blood for 1 year after treatment is applied
- Touch Up Visits should be done 30-45 days after
