Scalp micropigmentation is a leading hair loss solution offered by Vinci Hair Clinic and has gained significant popularity in the last few years. It is wise to research which hair loss treatments are the best for you as all cases are different, but SMP remains a successful solution with authentic results for people of all racial backgrounds and skin tones.

See the results for yourself in our Gallery. SMP works for people all sorts of different skin tones, hair colours and densities (from thinning to completely balding), and to cover scars and other irregularities.

Example of SMP on black skin

One of the main considerations our experts take into account when they plan an SMP treatment for a specific client is the skin pigmentation, along with other factors such as hair colour, scalp texture, follicle size and density etc. In this way, the added micropigmentation will match natural follicle size and skin pigmentation to create an authentic, uniform look.

Whether you are of African descent, Native American, East Indian, or any other regional /racial heritage, scalp micropigmentation can work for you.

What about effectiveness?

SMP has almost no risks, especially when you work with a skilled Vinci professional. The authenticity and effectiveness of the outcome can vary however, depending on the expertise of the technician. This is more of a concern for those with darker skin tones, and we will explain why.

For those with darker skin tones (and usually also darker hair colours) larger dots will be used in the pigmentation process, and generally speaking, a greater density is needed to match the existing hair. Also, the difference between skin and hair colour is more subtle. All these factors mean a higher margin for error.

Furthermore, this quality issue isn’t usually noticeable until a number of weeks following treatment when the results start showing themselves. Dots can have a noticeable difference to pre-existing hair, can merge or smudge, or in the worst cases turn to a shade of blue.

So it is always wise to select a clinic with professional technicians, documented experience, and proper ink and tools. There is no reason why skin colour should stop you from getting the results you are aiming for, however due diligence is of vital importance to ensure you achieve the outcome you were hoping for.
