Featured here are some frequently asked questions about Scalp MicroPigmentation. If you have any other questions please feel free to contact us.
1. Are consultations free?
Yes, all our consultations are completely free of charge and without obligation.
2. Why am I losing my hair?
For male pattern baldness, the biggest reason for hair loss is a hormone called DHT (Dihydrotestosterone), which damages the hair follicles on the top of the head, but doesn’t affect the hairs on the back of the head and sides. For women, there can be a number of other causes that your Vinci consultant can discuss with you
3. What happens in the consultation?
The consultant will evaluate your stage of hair loss, analyse your donor hair density, and assess if and how we can meet your expectations.
4. Can this treatment be used to create the look of micro hair for a receding hairline?
SMP can create the look of micro hairs or short and shaved hairs in the frontal line. You have to respect the limitations that lowering the hairline brings though, if you work in front of the receding line you will not be able to grow your hair long, you will have to commit to shaving your hair every 2-3 days on average to maintain the contrast looking natural between the MSP created hair and your existing hair.
Contact the Vinci Hair Clinic closest to you and get a personal consultation how our Micro Scalp Pigmentation will work for you.
5. I had Scalp MicroPigmentation a week ago and the color has faded a lot, I am afraid it is going to disappear, is that possible?
It sounds like you had your first session a week ago and its normal for the color to go down, you will need 2-3 sessions to achieve the final result and in some cases even more. This is due to the scalp being a living material; some scalps will absorb a considerable amount of pigment while others will take it almost fully in the first session. The truth is that its easy to darken and add to a light color that fades but much harder to remove something that is to dark or strong so being careful is not only recommended but a rule for all our MSP technicians.
After the second session you should see the final result or close to it at least, as I said some people will need more sessions then others.
6. Is there any risk of side effects or complications such as infections?
No. All equipment is sterilized according to the highest medical standards; you will also be given a antibiotic so there is no chance of a infection. At Vinci hair clinic, we have made hair transplants into such a science that you can rest assured that there is no risk for side effects.
7. Can I have a hair transplant after having Scalp MicroPigmentation?
Yes, you can and it wont affect the hair growth in any way. Many people that are completely bald and have an SMP treatment like to have a few hundred hairs implanted with our FUE technique, distributing it all over the scalp to get the feeling of hair stubs when someone touches the hairs, this looks absolutely natural and the hair grows just as well as in an area that hasn’t been treated with Scalp Pigmentation.
8. Can women also have SMP treatment for thinning hair?
Yes, in many cases SMP can help women to dissimulate the thinning areas by working on them with the technique.
