Scalp micropigmentation NYC is a non-invasive treatment using micro needles to place tiny dots of pigment on the areas of the scalp that are affected with hair loss to closely resemble the hair follicles surrounding that area so that the results are completely undetected. Depending on the client’s circumstance and desired results, SMP aims to accomplish 2 goals. For clients who have a good amount of hair but suffer from male or female pattern baldness, the pigment placed makes the hair look thicker. For clients who are completely bald, SMP resembles a buzz style cut.
This is a very common question yet difficult to answer without a proper consultation. SMP caters to many different types of hair loss and depending on that our technicians can give a quote. To give you an idea, a client who has a full head of hair with just a few slight balding areas and needs to make it look thicker may only pay $1000 - $1500, whereas a client who is completely bald and wants a full scalp treatment plan may pay anywhere from $3000 - $5000. We always advise our clients to come in for a free consultation so our technician can provide the fairest estimate.
The results are virtually undetectable by the human eye. With advancements in the industry and the latest technology used, INKredible Scalp’s trained SMP technicians ensure your scalp closely resembles real hair stubbles.
Typically, our clients are able to resume work the next day. The scalp maybe slightly red after the treatment but this subsides within a day or two.
Propecia can be used during and after your treatment. You must however discontinue the use of Rogaine 30 days after your final session to ensure proper healing and settling of the pigment. You can continue after the 30-day mark.

Lot's of clients are initially afraid of discoloration, particularly their impressions turning blue or green over time; the impressions will lighten over time but remain on a gray-scale blending in well with the rest of your scalp without discoloration.
We recommend no scrubbing, shampooing, or shaving over the treated area for 4-5 days after your scalp micropigmentation treatment.

SMP lasts different times for everyone. On average, we say to expect a touch up in 3-5 years but it could be required sooner and it could also last longer. Touch ups are not doing the procedure from scratch. Touch ups are to bring back a denser appearance after your previously placed impressions have lightened and faded over time. Different variables affect long term fading such as sweating, sun exposure, your immune systems reaction to the ink over time, etc. SMP is a very safe procedure and as long as done properly, will give off a gentle undetectable appearance of low cut hair over time, even while it lightens over time.
