Houston, TX– Revolutionary advances in hair restoration have made it possible to provide the option for more minimally invasive procedures for people who desire a more full look to their hair, but do not necessarily want to undergo a hair transplant surgical procedure. Bernardino A. Arocha, M.D., FISHRS, is now providing the newest scalp micro-pigmentation procedure for his patients.

Dr. Arocha, a board certified hair loss surgeon in Houston, Austin, Dallas, and New Orleans, is committed to offering the latest advances in hair restoration techniques so that patients have a variety of options to fit their needs.

Scalp micro-pigmentation, or SMP, is a medical tattoo that mimics the appearance of natural hair. It is most often used in patients who have hair loss, thinning hair, or desire a fuller look. SMP can be used in the following three ways:

  1. Mimic a shaved look with the appearance of stubble
  2. Create the illusion of density and more coverage in areas of thinning hair
  3. Decrease the visibility of scars from previous strip or FUE procedures

The SMP outpatient procedure is relatively simple in nature and can be performed over several hours. SMP is performed much like a tattoo or a permanent cosmetic procedure, but the pigment used is far more advanced, and the pigment is not placed as deeply into the skin. The size of the impression is very similar to a single hair or follicular unit. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve the desired darkness and look, and the pigment will fade naturally over time.
