What is SMP?Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a hair loss treatment that creates the illusion of hair growth along the scalp. As it uses a fine, thin needle to deposit pigment in the skin, many people consider SMP to be similar to getting a tattoo. The two procedures are very similar, but there are a couple of things that differentiate SMP from a tattoo. Not only is the needle used during SMP smaller than the ones used to create a tattoo, but SMP isn't applied as deep in the skin as tattoo ink. The technique used during SMP is called pointillism. Pointillism is the use of thousands of tiny dots to create an image— in this case, the illusion of natural hair follicles. These tiny dots are what makes the procedure look so realistic and creates the depth of a natural hairline. SMP is a fast-growing hair loss solution for both men and women suffering from hair loss, thinning hair, receding hair, and more. Not only can SMP give the illusion of a full head of hair, but it can also help restore your confidence and self-esteem. You can finally get back to feeling like yourself again.

Does Insurance Cover SMP?Most people considering getting SMP want to know how much it will cost and if their insurance will cover it. Unfortunately, Men's Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is not covered by most insurance because it is considered to be a cosmetic procedure. To be sure, it's still a good idea to check with your insurance provider. Different factors affect different insurance policies. It's possible your procedure may be partially or fully covered, just in our experience, that's not common. If your insurance has covered treatments for things such as cuts, burns, or other cosmetic procedures in the past, the chances they will cover your Scalp Micropigmentation are higher. Always make sure to check before starting your procedure. Making an assumption could cost you a lot!
Is Scalp Micropigmentation a Tattoo?Many people do consider Scalp Micropigmentation to be a tattoo. The two procedures are very similar. In fact, some people even refer to Scalp Micropigmentation as a scalp tattoo or hair tattoo. For starters, both procedures involve trained artists using a needle to deposit pigment into the skin. Due to the use of needles, those receiving the procedure also may feel some slight discomfort depending on their pain tolerance. However, there are a couple of things that make Scalp Micropigmentation a little different from getting a tattoo. First, the needles are different. In Scalp Micropigmentation, the needles are much finer and smaller than those used when getting a tattoo. Second, tattoos are applied much deeper in the skin than Micropigmentation. When applying Scalp Micropigmentation, artists use a technique called pointillism to create realistic looking hair follicles. This technique involves the use of thousands of tiny dots to create shapes and shading. These dots are not noticeable at a distance and are what create the unique and realistic look this procedure gives.
