FAQ’S

Is Scalp Micropigmentation a tattoo?2019-02-08T17:12:14+00:00

Scalp micropigmentation can be thought of as a form of permanent cosmetics, different from the regular tattoos that are offered. Although tattooing and scalp micropigmentation share some elements, it does not mean that they are the same.

What does the treatment cost?2019-02-08T17:12:14+00:00

Cost for treatment is dependent upon the amount of hair loss you currently have. We have a pricing chart based on the Norwood scale that we use as a guide during consultation. The average client we treat ranges from $1500-$3500. Some treatments can be less and some can be more depending on factors such as scars, alopecia, simple hairline repair, touch ups, etc. At Scalp Solutions we will work with every clients situation. We offer military/first responders discounts and financing through United Medical Credit. We gladly except all major credit cards.

Will anyone notice I had the treatment?2019-02-08T17:12:14+00:00

Scalp micropigmentation has become the modern hair loss solution due to its natural and undetectable results. The average person can’t tell the difference from natural hair follicles and SMP follicles. We strategically place the pigment into your scalp in order to accurately replicate each individual hair follicle to create a perfect match for each client.

How many treatments will I need?2019-02-08T17:12:14+00:00

On average you can expect between 2-3 sessions to complete your treatment depending on the extent of hair loss or scarring. Some clients may require a 4th treatment. These treatments are usually spaced about 7-10 days apart. To achieve the most natural results, Scalp micropigmentation should never be considered a one treatment process.

How long do the results last?2019-02-08T17:12:14+00:00

This is entirely dependent on the individual. However, often the procedure is impacted by sun as well as your own dermal collagen microstructure. Apart from this, genes also impact the life-expectancy of the procedure. Sunlight’s radiation breaks the ink, which further dissolves within your skin as a result the procedure may either last for an extended period of ten to fifteen years or only for around three years. Additionally, your skin’s rejuvenation and the amount of time your tissues take for healing are some of the other factors that impact the procedure. Clients must also understand that their body may reject the ink as it views it in the form of a foreign object. This is precisely why we place extra ink using our advanced techniques and applications. As a result, our clients experience little to no fading with time and acquire authentic and natural looking hair easily.

Will this treatment work for women?2019-02-08T17:12:14+00:00

Absolutely! Scalp Micropigmentation is gender neutral and serves as an excellent alternative to wigs, surgeries, or products that claim to restore hair loss and/or density.

Can Scalp Micropigmentation hide my scars?2019-02-08T17:12:14+00:00

Absolutely! By replicating tiny hair follicles inside the scarring and blending into the hair around the scarring area, transplant and surgical scars can see massive improvement in concealment.

How bad is the pain?2019-02-08T17:12:14+00:00

We can confidently tell you that while SMP isn’t without discomfort, any pain involved is generally far less than what most of our clients expect (in fact, we’ve had several clients feel so relaxed that they’ve fallen asleep during the procedure). Discomfort levels vary by person and by the level of previous work they’ve received, such as transplants etc. On average, our clients would rate their discomfort between 0 and 2 on a scale from 0-10.

When can I expose my head in the sunlight?2019-02-08T17:12:14+00:00

We would advise you to wait for a minimum of thirty days, post the completion of the procedure. Also, we suggest our clients to utilize a sunscreen (SPF 30) or even a hat or cap anytime you choose to step out into the sun.
