Scalp and Hairline Revision (SMP) 

SMP stands for Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-invasive treatment that uses detailed micro-needles to deposit pigment into the scalp. The result creates the appearance of tiny hair follicles that help thicken and restore the look of fuller hair. If you are starting to thin, recede, or if you are completely bald, we can give you the look of a short buzz cut. Or via Hand-tool

can give the effect of tiny hairs is used within smaller areas(thinning crown hair or female pattern baldness 

When administered by a trained and licensed specialist, the Scalp Micropigmentation treatment can restore receded hairlines, thicken remaining hair, camouflage transplant scarring, and create the look of close-cropped hair.

Scalp Micropigmentation is also effective for those suffering from minor hair thinning or recession.

By accurately replicating your own natural hair follicles and hair color, scalp micropigmentation can help strengthen and add density to thinning areas, creating an undetectable illusion of thicker, stronger hair.

Scalp pigmentation requires little to no continued maintenance and carries no strict lifestyle or daily restrictions.

SXCESS HAIR REVISION allows you to fully customize your treatment, with input on hairline design, style preferences, and final goals.

Scalp Micropigmentation is sometimes referenced to as a Hair Tattoo, Head Tattoo, Scalp Tattoo, Micropigmentation, Scalp Pigmentation, Micro Scalp Pigmentation, Micropigmentation Scalp, Hair Pigmentation

By day four with a foil shaver. If you decide to shave at this date, please use an electric foil shaver like the Remington R91 and be careful not to run it over the top of any scabs that have not flaked off.

When can I go swimming in pool with chlorine/Saunas/Use Spray Tanner?By day thirty (30) after all treatments are finished.

When can I go to an outdoor pool or the beach in the sun without sunscreen?

Never. The ultraviolet rays from the sun will damage the SMP pigments if no sunscreen is used over the course of many months or years. The end result would be fading and the need for a touch-up. Some clients report that they have spent much time in the sun with their SMP and no sunscreen without negative effects but we do not recommend it. This is not covered under warranty.
