According to the American Hairloss Association, two-thirds of American men will experience some degree of appreciable hair loss by age 35. Plus, eighty-five percent of men will have significantly thinning hair by age 50.
When hair loss strikes any unsuspecting man, it sends him scrambling for solutions.
Some have found success in slowing hair loss with natural remedies, but for those seeking a fail-safe, semi-permanent solution—there’s Scalp Micropigmentation.
THE COST OF SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION
Scalp Micropigmentation is non-surgical procedure in which a pigment formula is tattooed over the scalp to the patient’s desired result. Most effectively, SMP is performed over a bald head to achieve the appearance of a close buzz cut.
Although SMP solves the same problem as a hair transplant, the procedure is most similar to the pointillist technique used in painting—like getting a tattoo. See, SMP creates new impressions upon the skin (opposed to the re-appropriation technique of hair transplants), allowing SMP artists to model, color, and apply the ultra-fine dots for different skin types and complexions.
SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION OR HAIR TRANSPLANT
SMP costs remarkably less than hair transplants because it isn’t a medical procedure; scalp micropigmentation requires less work from the SMP artist and it carries less risk for the patient.
A Scalp Micropigmentation is a great in-between solution for someone seeking a long-term, but not permanent, solution to hair loss. Instead of transporting follicles to induce the near-miracle of hair regrowth, you can simply create the illusion of hair growth at a much lower cost, without any risk of the procedure being a dud. Also, you won’t be incurring the additional costs of pain medications, nor using up your vacation days to recover post-surgery.
WHY IS THERE A PRICE RANGE?
The cost of Scalp Micropigmentation procedures ranges because everyone’s procedure is unique. Each patient comes in at a different starting point depending on their hair loss, hair density, and hairline. Also, because hairlines are custom-designed for each unique individual customer, the procedure requirements are going to vary (and therefore, the price).
You should consult with your SMP artist beforehand to get a sense of the procedure’s cost. This should also give you an early opportunity to work with the SMP artist to formulate your desired hairline and look.
