When Viktor started losing his hair in his mid-twenties, he wasn’t worried. It was only as that hair loss trend continued, and his hairline crept higher and higher, that it started to bother him. Knowing that a hair transplant wasn’t what he wanted, Viktor started to research other options and came across SMP.
SMP, or scalp micropigmentation, is a technique that involves applying a cosmetic tattoo to the scalp to replicate the appearance of hair follicles. Because Viktor already liked to wear his hair short, he was the perfect candidate for this style of hairline restoration.
“Through my research, I’d discovered SMP and was intrigued. Lisa and the team at Precision Scalp answered all my questions, and ultimately I was comfortable that SMP was the right step to take,” said Viktor.
Unlike a regular tattoo, SMP is not painful and usually lasts from four to six years before a touch up is required. Although not permanent, the longevity of SMP certainly means that the procedure must be performed by someone skilled and experienced.
Lisa Millington, lead technician at Precision Scalp, is not only an expert at SMP herself, but she’s also an accredited trainer, passing on her knowledge to many newcomers in the industry. It’s this proven expertise that gives her clients peace of mind.
“I know Lisa has been performing cosmetic tattooing and SMP for a long time, and the fact that she teaches SMP to others made it easy to put my trust in her,” said Viktor.
A complete SMP treatment usually takes two to four sessions, but Viktor knew he’d made the right decision even after the first treatment.
“Lisa took the time to redraw my hairline, and after the first session, I could see results. It looked great. It looked natural. There was no pain at all, and I could just relax and let Lisa work her magic,” said Viktor.
After three sessions over four weeks, Viktor’s treatment was complete, and his hairline restored as expected. Perhaps, what was less expected, was the boost in confidence that Viktor experienced from his new look.
“Definitely, it helped me with my look but also my confidence and social skills as well,” said Viktor. “People can’t believe it’s not real, and I have a better hairline than I did in my twenties. It’s nice to know that there’s something we can do about a receding hairline.”
If like Viktor, a receding hairline is starting to bother you, SMP might be the answer you’re after. For more information or to book a free assessment, get in touch with the Precision Scalp team to discuss your options.
