SMP vs Hair Transplant

SMP vs Hair Transplant

Scalp Micropigmentation, also known as SMP, offers significant advantages over hair transplants, particularly when a transplant is not a feasible solution. SMP is an excellent option for concealing hair loss, even after undergoing a hair transplant, as it effectively disguises scars and enhances density in areas where the transplant may not have yielded desired results.

While some people choose to travel abroad for hair transplant procedures, this decision carries its own set of risks. Hair transplants do not guarantee desired outcomes, and patients must be prepared to deal with potential side effects and medications to ensure that their investment yields satisfactory results. Although these medications may come with several side effects, hormonal inhibitors generally promote hair growth after the transplant and help slow down or halt future hair loss. Unfortunately, scarring is often an inevitable consequence of the hair transplant process.

In contrast, SMP offers an affordable alternative to hair transplants with guaranteed results and no side effects. Following an SMP session, the treated area may exhibit temporary redness, which typically subsides within a few hours. For people with sensitive skin, redness may persist for up to 24 hours.

While a hair transplant can yield impressive results, it is important to consider the possibility of immune system rejection of hair plugs or the occurrence of adverse side effects. In such cases, SMP can effectively camouflage thinning areas, cover scars, and add density to new hair growth.

At Coastline SMP, we provide a complimentary maintenance session within the first 12 months to ensure your SMP remains fresh and to address any concerns you may have. Maintenance sessions can involve refreshing or darkening the SMP, refining the hairline, or addressing additional hair loss.Get in contact.
