Scalp Micro-pigmentation (SMP) is a relatively new procedure utilizing a cosmetic medical tattooing technique to mimic the appearance of very short hair. Thousands of micro-dots are injected just below the surface of the skin giving the appearance of visible hair stubble.

If the patient does not like the appearance, laser treatment can remove the pigment more rapidly. Patients who want to wear short hair, but have a visible linear scar after a strip technique or punctuate (round) scars after FUE hair restoration, are excellent candidates for this “camouflage” procedure. It is quite effective for thinning areas such as the part & crown rather than powders or fibers sprinkled in the thinning hair.
