To achieve the most natural results, Scalp Micropigmenatation should never be considered a one and done treatment process. Most clients on average can expect between 2-3 sessions to complete their treatment depending on the extent of hair loss or scarring. In more extreme cases some clients may require a 4th session. The first 2 sessions are spaced out between 7-12 days with the 3rd session typically coming into play anywhere from 2-6 months down the line.

The results are permanent, after completion of your treatment a client should expect the strength of the pigment to last for many years. Over a longer period of time, a client will gradually begin to notice slight lightening (not discolor) of the treatment. When this occurs clients undergo a quick “touch up” session to refresh and restore their treatment back to the desired state. Protecting SMP from sun exposure using SPF50 or a hat will prolong the lightening of the treatment.

Depending on the extent of hair loss and pattern, some clients are able to maintain a longer length of hair. SMP can help thicken areas so that less of the scalp is visible. However, if there is a strong pattern of hair loss or just not enough hair left to pull of any length the client would have to commit to cutting it shorter.
