But what exactly is SMP, and what can you expect from the process? From initial consultation to post-treatment care, this guide walks you through each step of your SMP journey, ensuring you’re well-prepared and informed. 

What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation is a revolutionary cosmetic procedure where thousands of micro dots are tattooed on to the scalp to replicate the natural appearance of real hair follicles. Ideal for both men and women, SMP can address various forms of hair loss, from thinning hair, baldness, alopecia, and camouflaging scarring.

Choosing SMP WA for Your Treatment

Selecting a reputable SMP artist is crucial. Joshua at SMP WA has established himself as a leader in Perth, known for his skill, state-of-the-art technology, and commitment to client satisfaction. When considering SMP, look for an artist with an excellent track record, transparent consultation process, and a portfolio of successful treatments and clients.

Preparing for Your SMP Session Preparation is key to a successful SMP experience. Prior to your session at SMP WA, you’ll be advised to:

  • Stay well hydrated a week prior to your treatment.
  • A week before your treatment use a paw paw cream or moisturise on your scalp.
  • Avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours before to minimise bleeding and skin sensitivity.
  • Shave your scalp for better pigment application, depending on the style you’re aiming for.

During the Procedure

Every SMP session with Joshua at SMP WA are tailored to each individual’s needs, and style. Generally, its 6-7 days between your 1st and 2nd SMP session. Then 2 weeks between your 2nd and 3rd session. Each session typically lasting 2-4 hours. Your 2nd and 3rd sessions are normally the longest.

Post-Procedure Care The aftercare is straightforward but essential for the longevity of your SMP results:

  • Avoid washing or shaving the treated area for a few days to allow the skin to heal for 5 days.
  • No excessive exercising or sweating for 5 days.
  • Apply a moisturiser/balm that is recommended by SMP WA to prevent scabbing.
  • Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight, and consider wearing a hat when outdoors for the first few weeks.

Long-Term Maintenance SMP is a low-maintenance solution, yet some long-term practices can help maintain its appearance:

  • Regularly moisturising your scalp to keep the skin healthy.
  • Touch-up sessions are recommended every 3 to 5 years to refresh the colour and density, as natural fading can occur with time and sun exposure.
