Q: How is Scalp Micro-Pigmentation (SMP) Performed?

How is SMP performed? — B.P., Long Island, NY

A: Scalp Micro-Pigmentation (SMP) is applied with tiny microneedles that mimics the appearance of hair in an area of the scalp that looks thin. It requires the use of local anesthesia and is performed in a doctor’s office. SMP is typically performed over a series of three or more sessions spaced at least 2-4 weeks apart. The length of each session varies depending on the area to be tattooed and can last from a few hours to a full day.

To perform successful SMP, the hair length and color must be analyzed in consultation along with a discussion of cosmetic goals and the potential techniques that could be implemented for the patient’s hair type. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and is generally well tolerated with very few post-op limitations.
