To ink, or not to ink? – Common concerns with SMP

Man experiencing hair loss

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a cosmetic procedure that has gained popularity in recent years as a solution for hair loss and thinning hair. The procedure involves the application of ink to the scalp, creating the appearance of hair growth. While SMP can be a great option for those experiencing hair loss, there are several concerns that individuals may have before making the decision to undergo the procedure. In this blog post, we will address some of the biggest concerns related to SMP and provide information to help individuals make an informed decision.

Naturalness of the Appearance: 

One of the biggest concerns for individuals considering SMP is whether the procedure will look natural. The goal of SMP is to create the appearance of hair growth, not to draw attention to hair loss. At our clinics, we use the latest techniques and highest-quality pigments to ensure that the results look as natural as possible. Our skilled technicians have years of experience and are highly trained to create a customized look that blends seamlessly with the individual’s existing hair. We have had several clients who claim that after the procedure, they’ve received numerous compliments on their new hair and are thrilled with how natural it looks.

Color Matching: 

Speaking of natural results, another concern is color matching. It is essential that the color of the ink used in the procedure matches the individual’s existing hair color as closely as possible. Afterall, you wouldn’t want to walk around with different colored patches all over your head. We understand the importance of color matching and take the time to carefully select the right pigments to ensure a perfect match. We also offer a range of pigments to cater to different hair color and skin tones. For example, one of our clients, Sarah, had naturally blonde hair and was worried about finding the right shade of ink for her SMP. However, our technician was able to match her hair color perfectly, and she was extremely pleased with the results. It’s important to consider that there may be times that selecting a different color than your “natural hair color” may provide better results, and for that we recommend speaking with one of our experienced technicians who can help create a plan custom tailored to your specific needs.

Longevity of the Procedure: 

SMP is not a permanent solution and the pigments will fade over time. Afterall, despite its “miraculous” and impressive results, it is just ink afterall. However, the results can last for several years, depending on the individual’s skin type, aftercare, and lifestyle. We recommend touch-up sessions to maintain the desired look, usually within a 3-5 year time frame. We’ve had several clients who had SMP done several years ago and have been thrilled with how long it has lasted. They’ve only needed a touch-up session once and are extremely pleased with the longevity of the procedure. Although your results may vary on a variety of different factors, we believe that SMP still remains one of the most effective and reliable treatments to combat the effects of hair loss.


SMP can be an expensive procedure, especially if you’re someone who requires extensive work done. But we should remember that this is a very important investment in yourself and your appearance. Our payment process makes it easy for many to access this treatment as we require just a portion of the cost upfront as a deposit. For those in greater financial need, we have partnered with United Medical to provide our clients with a financing option that works for them. If cost is a concern, feel free to contact our team to obtain your own personalized quote.
