Scalp Micropigmentation is the implantation of specifically developed pigment into the scalp. We implant microscopic dots that will simulate hair follicles and give the illusion of a shaved head. This is what we call the Shaved Effect. The shaved effect is one of the most popular treatments and suitable for most clients. But when is it recommended or neccessary to choose this specific technique? In this blogpost we will explain the ins and outs of this specific technique. In order to achieve a result that looks as natural as possible it is essential that we choose the right technique for each client. So when can we suggest a shaved look instead of a densification?


When the client does not have sufficient coverage of hair, in any area, the best option is the Shaved Look. In order to get the best results we advise the client to shave the hair to a lengt of maximum 1mm. With SMP we simulate the effect of hair growth. Creating an optical effect similar to when the hair reaches a length of between 0.1 mm and 0.5 mm. If the client’s hair surrounding the bald area exceeds these measures its difficult to reach the desired expectations. This is beceause the appearance of the treated area and the natural hair of the client will look completely different.
