Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) or hair tattoo is a noninvasive hair loss treatment. In this, tiny dots of special pigment are placed in the scalp to resemble hair follicle. The pigments create an appearance of thicker hair by blending in with existing hair. They provide the appearance of a shaved head in case of complete baldness. SMP has several applications and uses. It can help patients overcome the struggles of hair loss in the following ways:
- Creating density that looks natural among existing hair
- Restoring receding or receded hairline
- Camouflaging scars, such as the ones left from hair transplant
- Narrowing a wide part of hair
Scalp Micropigmentation is noninvasive in nature. This is the biggest benefit of this procedure. You do not need to worry about taking any down time or scarring. In fact, you can walk out on the same day with natural looking and immediate results. The procedure doesn’t involve plastic surgery and can be performed in-office. During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain various aspects of the procedure, including its costs. The primary goal of any responsible treatment provider will be to inform patients about the procedure and help them make a well-informed decision. Vinings Surgery Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove, provides Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) non-surgical hair solution for hair restoration to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
The cost of SMP treatment can marginally differ between patients. This is true even if two patients get the treatment at the same practice. The quality and nature of micropigmentation is customized to each case. Your treatment provider will initially assess your scalp condition, personal goals, and skin type. Depending on the assessment, they will come up with the total number of required treatment sessions necessary for performing the procedure. The pattern of your hair loss, size of area that needs treating and the presence of scars will determine the cost of your SMP procedure. You should also take into account the future costs of maintaining results in the long run. However, pigmentation doesn’t usually fade away for a long time.
Other Cost Factors
The geographical location of the treatment provider’s office is an important factor affecting the total cost of the cosmetic procedure. Practices that are located in main metropolitan cities and urban centers usually have higher overhead and real estate costs as compared to practices located in smaller, interior towns. Experience and qualifications of the treatment provider is another important factor determining the overall fees charged. Type of facility, quality standards and services on offer are some other factors that may impact total costs.
Financing and Insurance Options
SMP is an aesthetic treatment that may not be covered by your health insurance. However, you can always make use of the available financing options from third party medical care financing loan providers to pay for the treatment. These loans are generally available at attractive rates.
