The Benefits Of A Hair Tattoo
How a hair tattoo can benefit you & restore your confidence
Scalp micropigmentation (commonly referred to as SMP or hair tattoo) is beneficial to anyone experiencing hair loss or hair thinning.
A hairstyle is a part of what creates our identity, so when we start to lose our hair, it can affect self-esteem and confidence.
Well, SMP can improve these self-esteem and confidence issues but also has many other benefits:
- Restores the appearance of a hairline to its previous state
- SMP can address different forms of alopecia as well as general thinning.
- It can camouflage scars and burns and any other imperfections on the scalp.
- Scalp micropigmentation is an affordable alternative to surgical procedures like hair transplants.
- It will give a fuller and more youthful appearance.
It has multiple other benefits and SMP can be life-changing for so many.
A little bit of confidence goes a long way…
Is a Hair Tattoo Actually A Tattoo?
Scalp Micropigmentation is regularly referred to as a hair tattoo, but is it a tattoo?
The procedure of tattooing and scalp micropigmentation to the untrained eye may look very similar; pigment is implanted into the skin with needles attached to what looks like a tattoo gun, creating an image in the skin. Sounds the same, right? Wrong.
Scalp micropigmentation uses different everything, machines, needles, and pigment. Even the depth in which the needles are implanted is different from traditional tattooing.
So, to answer the question, no, scalp micropigmentation is not technically a tattoo, but due to the similarities in both procedures, it is often recognized as one. There is no problem with this, as long as you’re not asking any tattoo studio to create you a hair tattoo. Scalp micropigmentation is a specialized treatment with highly certified artists performing such treatment.
