SMP Treatment

Alopecia Totalis/ Universali​s

Alopecia Totalis/ Universali​s

Alopecia Universalis results in complete hair loss across the entire body, including the scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes, and all other bodily hair, marking it as the most advanced form of Alopecia. In contrast, Alopecia Totalis refers to complete hair loss only on the scalp.

SMP Treatment serves as a solution to diminish the visual impact of hair loss. Some individuals opt to combine Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) with other treatments due to its immediate and dependable results. 

For individuals experiencing Alopecia Totalis/Universalis, the only viable Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) option is the bald stubble look. However, in some cases, the skin might exhibit resistance to pigment intake, potentially requiring additional sessions. We'll assess your skin's reaction after the initial session to determine the course of treatment.

Cicatricial (Scarring) Alopecia

Cicatricial alopecia typically arises from inflammation damaging hair follicles, which can be caused by various factors like trauma from burns or severe infections. This inflammation involves different cell types, such as lymphocytes, natural killer cells, and others.

Both men and women are susceptible to cicatricial (scarring) alopecia, where inflammation destroys hair follicle stem cells and oil glands, resulting in scarring or fibrosis. 

For cicatricial alopecia, both Scalp Micropigmentation ​SMP Treatment options—density or bald stubble look— are feasible. However, it's crucial not to work on currently inflamed areas, as pigment won't adhere properly to inflamed skin, causing bleeding and aggravating the condition.

We'll work around inflamed areas and space sessions further apart to allow ample healing time between treatments. Additionally, it's essential to note that future inflammation in other areas might affect the appearance of your Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) results, potentially requiring touch-ups for consistent appearance
