Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is revolutionising the way we address hair loss. Once thought to be exclusively for those experiencing complete baldness, the versatility of SMP is steadily emerging. At Foli Sim, we aim to debunk the myths surrounding this innovative treatment and demonstrate how it offers effective solutions for a spectrum of hair loss issues. Whether you’re a man experiencing male pattern baldness or a woman battling thinning or patchiness, SMP might be the answer you’ve been searching for.

One hesitation we often hear regarding SMP is that one must have a shaved head prior to receiving the treatment. In this blog, we debunk this myth and discuss how SMP can be worked into your natural hair, whilst still achieving the best results.

How does scalp micropigmentation work?

We have touched on this before in our previous blogs, but to recap: SMP is a non-surgical treatment where specialised microneedles are used to deposit pigment dots into the scalp, simulating the appearance of natural hair follicles. The result? A fuller, denser looking head of hair, indistinguishable from the real thing. It’s no surprise that SMP’s popularity has soared, especially among those seeking non-invasive, affordable alternatives.

SMP for hair loss in men

It’s a common misconception that SMP for men is only for those who have a fully shaved head. On the contrary, many men with thinning hair or receding hairlines also opt for this procedure. The treatment adds depth and density to diminishing areas, effectively masking the appearance of hair thinness, and restoring the hairline. And yes, for those who have embraced their baldness, SMP can recreate a sharp, defined hairline by creating a buzzcut look.

SMP for thinning and patchiness in women

Hair thinning isn’t a gender-exclusive issue. Women, especially postpartum or those facing female pattern baldness, can experience patchy hair loss, or hair thinning. SMP for women is steadily growing in popularity for its ability to add the appearance of restored hair density and volume. By meticulously placing pigments, SMP masks these patches, ensuring a consistent hair appearance. There is no requirement for women to shave their hair fully or partially in order to receive SMP, as it can be applied directly to patchy or thinning areas to blend in with the natural hair growth of the actual hair.

Debunking the shaving myth

One of the main hesitations around SMP is the believed requirement to shave the head entirely. This isn’t always the case. For those with longer hair, SMP can be carefully woven into existing hair patterns and remaining hair to achieve a holistic and blended appearance.

Only in specific scenarios, such as recreating a buzzcut look, might full head shaving be recommended prior to receiving the treatment.
