Can women use SMP?
Is scalp micropigmentation (SMP) suitable for women suffering from hair loss?
Scalp micropigmentation, commonly known as SMP, is a highly effective, permanent hair loss solution. Specially blended micropigments are delivered into the top layer of the scalp to recreate the appearance of hair follicles.
In recent years, SMP has become very popular with men as it can produce the illusion of a full head of closely shaven hair, but as techniques have improved it can also provide a hair loss solution for women.
Androgenetic alopecia in women typically presents as diffuse thinning across the top of the scalp, with the front hairline preserved. Scalp micropigmentation works for women by increasing the appearance of density and minimising the contrast between the scalp and the existing hair.
