Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a highly detailed, non-invasive hair loss solution, that creates natural looking hair. SMP provides the look of hair by depositing thousands of micro pigment dots into the epidermis of the scalp which replicates hair follicles. Best of all, there is no down-time or ongoing maintenance required with SMP. SMP is not a scalp tattoo—this is the look of natural, fuller and thicker hair.
At Rejuvenation Medical, we provide SMP for male and female pattern baldness, alopecia, thinning hair, and scarring. We can also discuss prescription medication modalities (Finasteride, Minoxidil) to help preserve the life of the hair you still have. In addition, we can use our laser technology to soften and lighten scars prior to camouflaging and blending them with SMP. We provide our clients with life changing, long lasting, and natural results. SMP is a new way of life, it will improve your overall attractiveness, self-esteem, and confidence.
Male pattern baldness
Male pattern baldness is the result of genetic and hormonal changes which results in thinning hair (the horseshoe balding pattern). SMP can create the appearance of a full head of hair. We can also discuss prescription medication modalities (Finasteride, Minoxidil) to help preserve the life of the hair you still have.
This is often the first sign of male pattern baldness. For some men a receding hairline can cause low self-esteem and embarrassment. SMP can restore your natural looking hairline and confidence.
Density and Thinning Hair for Women:
SMP is a great option for providing hair density by reducing the contrast between your scalp and natural hair color. SMP color-blends pigment to your skin tone and hair color. This color-blending technique provides the best cosmetic results while creating the look of thicker and fuller hair.
SMP, in conjunction with our in-house laser technology, can lighten and soften scars, and then camouflage and blend them into your natural hairline.
