Have you seen Jamie Foxx on the red carpet? Or, Vin Diesel in the latest flick? Or pro NFL football player Louis Rankin at the media interviews? And wondered how their hairlines look round and lush? The secret is SMP: scalp micropigmentation.
SMP is the latest solution helping with hair loss and thinning, receding hairlines is, and it’s finally here in Vancouver, thanks to Emme Hair Salon.
While it was a popular solution for women, helping women gain confidence after hair loss due to a trauma, the aesthetic trend has picked up popularity with men too! In addition to covering up scars and thinning hair, this cosmetic process can help men boost some color, volume and self-confidence into their lives too!
“I spoke to Veronica about the process. She explained what to expect, and what not to expect. The semi-permanent ink provides a look of natural hair growth, but cannot impact hair growth overall. She used a small needle to ink the pigment. I went three times, in order to achieve the color and style that I wanted. It’s been a year, and I have not been for a touch-up yet,...
The process is part technical, part artistic: our technician reviews your hair texture, color and desired style, before doing any inking. The treatment is planned and discussed, ensuring you are comfortable to move forward.
Step 1 - Consultation
Initial treatment with a knowledgeable technician at Emme Salon is FREE. Come and see the photos of men who did the treatment before you, as well as the celebrities who are the trend-setters in this cosmetic procedure!
Step 2 - Initial treatment
Initial treatment includes defining the style with our technician, gaining more insights into the process. Our technician uses a microneedle and premium ink, to paint natural looking strokes into your hairline. Whereas regular tattoo is inked 5mm below the skin, SMP technique uses needles to imprint the ink just 2mm below the scalp. It does not hurt (too much!) and helps cover up the bald spots and receding hairlines! The technique is precise and beautiful.
Step 3 - More intensive treatment; often the last treatment
Each following treatment will add darker tones and pigments to the scalp. The premium pigment Emme Salon uses is natural-looking and creates effective results. There is no discoloration ever after a few months. Each treatment lasts 2-3 hours.
Step 4 - If necessary, touch-ups
Sessions are spread over the course of a few weeks. Colors do not fade. If you want to come in for a touch-up, Emme Salon is glad to accommodate.
Step 5 - Congratulations!
You will notice small dots that give the impression of stubble or hair follicles. Such tattoos are great for covering up scars due to surgeries or injuries, or covering up male pattern baldness.
“Veronika’s the best for SMP inking in town! She was able to recreate my natural hair style, add more density, I have a head full of hair again! I started losing my hair at the young age of 30, and avoided photos. Now, I’m back to dating again, confidently!”
GLOBAL TREND FOR MEN OF ANY ETHNICITY OR SKIN COLOR
