What is Scalp Micropigmentation in Toronto or SMP ?
Scalp Micropigmentation Toronto by The Ink Stylist Toronto is a method of disguising hair loss by “tattooing” tiny spots the size of hair follicles onto the scalp in the hair loss areas. This technique can be used in many scenarios, hair transplant fill in and failure, hiding of scar and filling in thinning areas with great results. It is suitable for both men and woman. Scalp Micropigmentation in toronto is also a viable alternative to hair transplant.
It is important to differentiate SMP from standard tattoo procedures. Standard tattooing uses much larger inking implements, creating large blotches of ink deep in the skin that will not look natural in this application. SMP must be preformed by a trained SMP artist using inking implements specifically designed for this purpose in order to create effective, natural results.
FDA approved organic dyes are used to give the appearance and feel of a recently shaved scalp. Results are visible immediately and long lasting. More than one procedure may be required to achieve desired appearance.
The impressions ‘dots’ are very small and for a person with hair that is not black (light brown for example) the pigment color can mimic the hair around the fringe, almost a dark gray which will not be a problem with age. We generally make the color match the hair color (shade). Remember that as the hair grows out from the scalp, it is exposed to sunlight (normally) and the hair in almost all people who do not have black hair will see some hair lightening, so we address that up-front as we select the initial color we use.Pigment shades are carefully selected to blend as closely as possible with your real hair. This pigment selection process is highly individual and is essential to ensure a successful outcome.Going grey is a slow and gradual process, and is therefore usually matched as your pigments fade slowly over time. If you do go grey, it is quite possible that the usual touch-up session that you would otherwise require to keep your pigmentation fresh will not be required.

There is no reason why you couldn’t get hair transplant after SMP. However if you are planning to get a hair transplant I suggest getting it first. This way you can see what density you need from Scalp Micropigmentation or SMP. Your new follicles of the hair are anchored deep so the pigment won’t affect the hairs’ growth rate or thickness in the area.
This is a permanent pigment that we use so we expect that it will be three for your entire life. This is the reason you need it done right the first time or it will drive up the cost as you try to remove it, fix it and redo it. Experience, just like with a hair transplant, is the critical factor.
