SMP & Hair Transplants
scalp micropigmentation after surgery
How does this option work?
A hair transplant is a great option for many people who are experiencing hair loss, but it is not without its limitations. A great result from hair transplant surgery depends heavily on the following factors:
- The chosen procedure type
- Availability of donor hair and number of grafts transplanted
- What donor site is used for harvesting
- Retention rate and ‘shock loss’
- Skill of your physician
- The healing process
- Desired outcome
- Correct management of expectations
In many cases we see patients who did in fact achieve a good outcome from their surgery, but for whatever reason were unable to achieve the healed density they would ideally like. This is where scalp micropigmentation can help.
At Dermagrafix we routinely use SMP to add the appearance of extra density where surgery was unable to achieve full density as a standalone procedure. We often take the opportunity to camouflage scars from surgery at the same time.

We want all our clients to have the very best treatment experience. Our reputation as one of the leading micropigmentation centers in the United States is built upon a policy of always being honest with our clients.
For this reason it is imperative that we carry out a thorough assessment of your current hair loss situation, so we can ascertain whether or not this option is available to you. If we can perform your treatment in this way, then of course we will, however if this is not an option for you then we can discuss alternative approaches.
How Does this Option Work?
As you progressively lose your hair, it becomes noticeable because a contrast develops between the appearance of your hair and that of your scalp. Our scalp micropigmentation treatments for longer hair are tailored to address this difference in appearance.
We use specialized hair follicle tattooing techniques to replicate the appearance of micro hairs on the scalp. These replications fill the areas of your scalp where hair loss is visible, reducing the contrast between your scalp skin and your hair. The end result is an illusion of thicker, fuller hair.
Specialist pigment is applied to the scalp over 2-4 sessions, depending on your individual needs. Each session generally takes 1-3 hours to complete, and there is minimal recovery time.
When we plan your sessions, we select the most appropriate pigment color and shade for your skin and hair type for the most natural results, and we provide full aftercare guidance to ensure you get the very best from your treatment experience with us.
