Reducing Hair Blues with Scalp Micropigmentation
Scalp Micro-Pigmentation or SMP is a widely used and effective process to camouflage receding hairlines or to create the look of a fuller head of hair for those with thinning hair. SMP is also used to create a permanent “shaved look” for those not wanting to undergo hair transplant surgery. It is a unique process performed by highly trained, certified specialists, utilizing specialized instruments and pigments.
Although SMP was not originally developed to treat scalp scarring, its usefulness as a treatment to conceal unsightly and embarrassing hair transplant scars soon became obvious to those familiar with the scarring that usually results from hair transplant surgeries. SMP is also used to conceal scarring alopecias, and scars from surgical procedures and burns.
SMP is an Effective Solution for Visible Scalp Scars from Hair Transplants
Strip (or FUT) scarring and dot (or FUE) scars resulting from hair transplant surgery can be treated to make the scars virtually disappear. However, concealing FUT and FUE scars with the scalp micro-pigmentation process requires considerable ability and skill. Shelley Todd, a San Diego-based, certified Micro-Pigmentation Technician and SMP specialist, now offers this amazing process and is restoring the confidence of her clients that have had hair loss and scarring from hair transplants.
SMP treatment must address the fact that each scar is unique. Scars that are to be treated are individually assessed and identified by tissue structure and the position, size, shape and color of the protrusion or indentation. After examining the scars, Shelley Todd devises a comprehensive SMP treatment plan that considers the pigment to be used to effectively reduce the visibility of the scars. The results are permanent and do not require any specialized care or maintenance. Routine skin maintenance and sun protection are strongly suggested to ensure long-term satisfaction and to reduce fading of the pigmentation.
The amazingly realistic results make SMP a compelling treatment alternative for those wishing to conceal unsightly scars or as a cost effective, alternative treatment for those experiencing hair loss. So, if you’re tired of living with scalp scars or want to immediately reduce the visibility of a receding hair line or thinning hair, contact Shelly Todd for a consultation.
