Combining Scalp Micropigmentation and Hair Transplants

by | Nov 25, 2021

A really interesting article from the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, published in 2016, covering the topic of combining a hair transplant with SMP.

“The process can be used in patients with thinning hair who are not candidates for hair transplantation such as the majority of women with thinning hair (50% of post-menopausal females). Similarly, many men who have received hair transplants and do not get the fullness that they wanted can often obtain their desired end results with SMP. As this is a non-surgical treatment, it is attractive for many patients who find themselves wanting more hair but not wanting to or able to undergo more hair transplants, for whatever reason. The SMP process is a permanent solution to many hair and scalp problems that cannot be treated with traditional hair transplantation, and acts similarly to powdered fibers without the messy problems associated with these products. The SMP market may reflect possibly millions of men and women and patient satisfaction is very high when done well.”
