Scalp or Facial Micropigmentation, also referred to as SMP or FMP, is the cosmetic application of a specialized, permanent tattoo to the scalp or face to mimic the pattern of hair. SMP orFMP is an effective technique used to create a fuller look in areas of low hair density. It can also be used in combination with a hair transplant when the donor hair supply is limited. SMP orFMP can also help to camouflage and soften the appearance of old scars.
At De Haar Hair Restoration we utilize a specialized three-needle SMP application technique that is different from general tattooing. The high quality pigments used in our SMP process are designed specifically for this purpose and our professionals are well-trained in its application. Our procedures are performed in a safe and professional medical environment.
The foundation of a natural-looking result is based on the ability of the professional to create a beautiful hair line that will serve you in the short and in the long term. The shape and positioning of the hair line, and the ability to mimic the appearance of hair using a technique called pointillism, create natural results. These are the areas in which Dr. Bea Gerbrands and her team excel.
More than one session may be required to establish the desired appearance. Repeat touch-ups are necessary as the pigments fade over time. Fading varies from person to person and protection against UV light will help the colour last longer.
Your comfort during the procedure is important to us so we provide topical and local anesthetic options to the treatment areas.
Please schedule an appointment to establish whether scalp micropigmentation is right for you.
