Come into our clinic, conveniently located a block away from time square, so that one of our technicians can assess your hair loss, your age, level of baldness, and most importantly, your goals and desired results. We will discuss whether or not SMP or Trico is the best solution for you and what the benefits are for each. Before committing, our technician will spend the time required with you and draw a mock hairline to make sure you are absolutely certain and comfortable with it.
Once you are comfortable and excited about your hair loss treatment plan, the next step is to schedule your 1st treatment session. Depending on the level of hair loss and other factors, you may need anywhere from 2-4 sessions, this will be discussed with you during your free consultation. Each session is about a week apart in order to ensure the best results.
It’s the time you’ve been long waiting for! Time to get your long-awaited results. After the first session, you may or may not realize an immediate difference. This depends on your scalp, level of baldness, and the treatment plan put together with your technician. It is important to trust the process. Sessions 2-4 are used to add more pigment, at times with various size microneedles, to give your scalp the most realistic and natural look possible. The goal is to mimic real hair stubbles. Once you are done with your final treatment, your technician will provide you with your aftercare product and instructions. If you did tricopigmentation, you will not have to come back for a touch up until about 1-2 years. If you did scalp micropigmentation, no touch will be required until about 4-6 years. Time to move on living your life with confidence!
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 $400-$800, whereas a client who is completely bald and wants a full scalp treatment plan may pay anywhere from $3000 - $4000. We always advise our clients to come in for a free consultation so our technician can provide the fairest estimate.
