What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Minimally invasive Scalp Micropigmentation procedure
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a simple and minimally invasive procedure that creates the appearance of a full head of hair by carefully and meticulously placing tiny pigment impressions amongst existing hair. Each impression replicates natural hair follicles, creating a realistic look that is surprisingly low maintenance.
When delivered by one of our experts, Scalp Micropigmentation can give the appearance of naturally restored receding hairlines, thicken remaining hair, camouflage existing hair transplant scars, and/or create the look of close-cropped hair.
Suitable for men and women
Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-invasive procedure, suitable for men and women. Unlike other hair loss treatments, it gives you immediate results with no downtime and is less expensive than a hair transplant.
The virtually painless procedure involves the use of highly specialized equipment and unique techniques to carefully and expertly inject all-natural, color-tailored pigments into the scalp creating a completely natural look of the patient’s hairline.
A typical scalp micropigmentation procedure involves an initial consultation and two pigmentation sessions to achieve the desired results. Once the procedure is complete, the results of a Scalp Micropigmentation treatment can last up to five years.

The Scalp Micropigmentation Procedure
1st Pigmentation Session
During the first session, our experts lay the foundation of your new look by matching the surrounding hair’s color and density. Every detail -color variance, space filling, follicle thickness and more- is taken into account to achieve the best results.
2nd Pigmentation Session
The second session is when thicker and denser appearance is created with more pigmentation delivered to the scalp. This session usually takes place 10 to 14 days after the first procedure.
Post Procedure Care
As opposed to other hair loss treatments, the care needed for Scalp Micropigmentation right after the procedure is very simple and low maintenance. You only need to wash your head the fourth day after the treatment and, during that time, avoid any strenuous activity that will prompt undesired sweating.
Do you qualify for SMP?
Whether you’re affected by thinning hair, pattern baldness, or scarring of the scalp, Scalp Micropigmentation is an immediate, affordable, and effective hair loss solution.
Heading on the Right Path
SMP is an excellent option for those patients who either don’t want or are not eligible for hair transplantation surgery, or as a complementary procedure for those who want the appearance of thicker, fuller hair.

What They Say About SMP
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Epstein’s for quite some time now. While I was looking into Scalp Micro Pigmentation, I found out that one of Dr. Epstein’s nurses was one of the experts performing this treatment. Since my transplant results came out great, I decided to have the SMP here, and my results came out great, under Dr. Epstein’s guidance. I live in Connecticut where there are a lot of SMP centers, which I’m sure are great, but with my experience with Dr. Epstein and his staff, this was an easy decision and I couldn’t be happier.

Now that I’ve had my scalp micropigmentation done, I don’t have to worry about any of my old donor site scars from work done in the 1980s, showing. Thanks so much doc!

SMP made the difference between looking good and now looking really good. Your hair transplants were really effective Dr. E, and by having my scalp made a bit darker, I feel so much prettier and not so thinning with my hair.
