SCALP MICRO PIGMENTATION Swansea

WHAT IS SCALP MICRO PIGMENTATION?

SMP is a clinical tattoo… that replicates the human hair follicle on the scalp, using DEDICATED CLINICAL GRADE PIGMENTS.

It is the simulation of an aperture, a single dot on the skin, mirroring the hair follicle.

It is done by implanting pigment into the skin by a digital tattoo device.

And by this means exactly replicate human hair density, increasing density at a thinning crown, at the fine hair of a parting, at a receding hairline and, a full head that has been buzz-cut or shaved.

(It is not replicating hair.)

Questions & Answers

WHAT IS A HAIR FOLLICLE?

The hair follicle is the aperture or cavity in the skin, the hole if you like, where your hair grows from. That is what SMP is creating. a VIRTUAL FOLLICLE.

DOES SKIN COLOUR MATTER?

Different skin colours present very slight differences in follicle colour. On light skin the hair follicle appears grey. On darker skin they appear grey/ black. On very dark skin they appear black. The differences are very subtle, but none the less one we consider very important when we are considering individual ScalpMicroPigmentation.

DOES HAIR COLOUR MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

Differences in natural hair colour may also have an impact on the colour of the hair follicle. On redheads they may appear more brownish/ grey. Blondes may appear taupe/ grey. And some one who is naturally grey or white will present just grey.

WHAT ABOUT HAIR DENSITY?

Hair density refers to how many hairs you have per square inch.
In other words, how thick hair or thin your hair is.
Every one has a different hair density.
The average human scalp is 120 square inches.
But your natural hair colour my point to a difference in your hair density… for example…

natural hair colour – number of hairs

  • Blonde – 146,000 ave 1216 per sq inch MAX
  • Black – 110,000 ave 916 per sq inch MAX
  • Brown – 100,000 ave 833 per sq inch MAX
  • Red – 86,000 ave 716 per sq inch MAX

(Caucasian) (Stevens 2007)

Your natural hair density is taken into consideration during your consultation.

At the very least we can mimic exactly the hair density you present.

However, we can also increase that density for a more defined result.

DOES HAIR TEXTURE MATTER?

Hair texture is measured by the degree of which one’s hair is either fine or coarse, which in turn varies according to the diameter of each individual hair.

There are commonly four major categories recognised for hair texture: Fine, medium, coarse, and wiry. Within the four texture ranges hair can also have thin, medium, or thick density and it can be straight, curly, wavy, or kinky.

None of this has any impact on your treatment when what we are considering is the replication of the follicle.

WHAT ABOUT MY BEARD?

Facial hair restoration and enhancement is very successful for beard stubble density, and brow reconstruction and enhancement.

DOES HAIR COLOUR MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

Differences in natural hair colour may also have an impact on the colour of the hair follicle. On redheads they may appear more brownish/ grey. Blondes may appear taupe/ grey. And some one who is naturally grey or white will present just grey.
