Top 9 Benefits of Scalp Micropigmentation

Millions of people globally suffer from hair loss or alopecia. There are many treatments for this condition, undeniably with one of the most common being scalp micropigmentation. In this article, we’ll discuss various benefits of SMP and the results of this hair loss treatment.

What is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)?

Firstly, scalp micro pigmentation is a process that involves depositing pigment into the scalp using detailed microneedles. This hair loss treatment helps give the look of fuller and thicker hair with  tiny hair follicle impressions.

Baldness is relatively common in the USA; studies show that one out every 5 Americans experience some type of hair loss including; receding hairline, male or female pattern baldness, thinning hair, or alopecia.

Benefits of Scalp Micropigmentation

Apart from being the only 100% safe and reliable hair treatment out there, there are several other benefits of scalp micro-pigmentation, here are 9 more:

1. Long term usage

Hair loss solutions like hair transplants require follow up appointments within 4-6 months to keep the hair follicles in good condition. Scalp micro pigmentation, on the other hand, can be used for up to 3+ years with little maintenance needed. The treated scalp requires restorative pigmentation only if the pigment begins to fade.

2. No need for extra maintenance

SMP uses ink to create the illusion of the thickness of hair follicles, seeing that it doesn’t involve the use of ‘real hair’. Because there isn’t any real hair on the scalp, SMP does not require any special maintenance procedure appointment. Therefore there’s no need to purchase expensive hair styling creams or additional hair products.

All the pigmented area of the scalp needs is a good wash, perhaps some sunscreen, and if preferred, a little bit of hair wax to produce a shine.

3. Safe and secure

Hair loss treatment is usually frowned upon and avoided by many. Often times it’s avoided due to fears of chemicals, surgical procedures, and potential side effects; whereas SMP does not involve the use of chemicals in any way.

In fact, all that is needed for the pigmentation is an electric tattoo needle and a mild anesthetic to prevent infections and curb any pain from the needles. The micropigmentation process requires no incisions, therefore there’s no need for any incisions or surgical instruments.

4. Economical

Scalp micropigmentation is relatively cheap as it does not involve any type of surgery or surgical equipment. This means there is a lower number of practitioners needed for the scalp micropigmentation.

It is also much less expensive than a hair transplant which needs post medications and additional aftercare products for your immune system and scalp. There generally no need for follow-ups after the scalp pigmentation but for the rare case that the pigment fades off prematurely.

5. Minimal invasion

Micropigmentation is sometimes referred to as acupuncture for the scalp. This is because its process does not involve the breaking of the skin; instead, it works by integrating the pigmentation seamlessly with one’s skin tone with the use of small needles. The procedure is quick and relatively painless, with zero to minimal discomfort.

6. Quick procedure and healing period

SMP has little to no recovery time. It does not involve any invasive procedures, so only a few days at most. There are no wounds to heal or stitches to change in between sessions, only a routine through cleaning of the scalp after.

Each session takes a few hours to be completed, and results are already somewhat visible after the first session.

7. Realistic look

Micropigmentation hair loss treatment, when performed by a certified professional gives the impression of natural hair. SMP provides a near-perfect replication of hair texture and color, producing a look of closely shaven hair.

It helps add more density to thinning areas of the scalp where hair growth is stunted and parts of the hairline that have receded. The results of scalp micropigmentation also help cover imperfections on the scalp like scarring from injuries, or incisions during surgery like hair transplants.

8. Youthful appearance

There is a certain stereotype or stigma with hair loss and hair thinning; it’s assumed that the sufferer is old or older than they really are. This condition sometimes leads to plummeting of self-esteem, causing sufferers to feel like others are staring at their bald spots and assuming they are ageing or older than they are.

SMP helps boost confidence for sufferers of pattern baldness, alopecia, and receded hairlines.

9. Reliable hair loss solution

SMP is a trusted and reliable hair loss treatment. Other solutions like supplements, topical creams, or even hair transplants aren’t always 100% effective. Scalp micropigmentation is the only treatment with guaranteed results.


Micro-pigmentation does not involve the same hair loss treatment as a hair transplant. Hair transplants make use of hair follicles taken from other parts of the body (donor areas) and inserted into the scalp surgically.

In conclusion, scalp micro pigmentation uses microneedles to replicate the color of the hair on the scalp giving one the ‘look’ of thicker hair. The benefits of scalp micropigmentation treatment are numerous. It is safe, non-invasive, and requires little to no strict lifestyle change and maintenance.
