Scalp Micropigmentation Treatment in Bangalore

Losing hair is never an easy prospect to accept, and while most of us have some amount of hair loss on a daily basis, new hair not growing in its stead is what leads to the condition known as hair loss. If the hair loss is extreme, then a hair transplant might be the only way out, but with several new methods breaking ground each day in the medical world, there are actually other options in hand these days. If you walk into AK Clinics, the best scalp micropigmentation clinic in Bangalore, you will come to know that these days, there are several other methods of covering up your hair loss, and a transplant might be required only in the most extreme scenario. SMP in Bangalore is now kicking up as awareness is readily to the masses.


What exactly is SMP?

SMP is a technique by which a series of tiny dots are created all over the scalp, concentrating on the areas where the hair loss is most visible. A non-toxic ink is used and the colour will be matched to your exact hair colour, to make the final look natural. The tiny dots will mimic tiny hair, as if you had a really short cropped hair cut. This procedure is also a great way to cover scars, which might have been caused by infection or any trauma or FUT hair transplant. The best part about SMP is that it is a cost effective method to cover your entire head, offering it a really well groomed look.

How We Do It

Who can consider getting SMP?

  • When the grade of baldness is extremely high and there is not enough of a donor area
  • When there have been multiple surgical sessions, but the patient wants more covering, without another surgery
  • When patients want a way to cover scars from a previous surgery
  • When the patient wants to restore facial hair, but is not too keen on surgical methods
  • When there have been multiple transplant sessions, but the result is still nowhere near what was desired
  • When the alopecia is extensive such as alopecia universalis or alopecia totalis


Advantages of SMP Treatment

  • Gives the look of a full, youthful head of cropped hair.
  • Simulates a full-front, side and/or rear hairline
  • Restores hairline on part-bald or fully bald heads
  • Camouflage – permanently – the symptoms of all levels of alopecia
  • Camouflage scarring resulting from previous hair transplant surgery
  • Hides scars, burns and birthmarks
  • Boosts the visual effect of a hair transplant

Can SMP be done in tandem with a hair transplant?

There are several cases where a hair transplant is not able to provide the kind of density that the patient was looking for. This could be because of an insufficient donor area or it could be because the recipient area is too large. In such situations, combining a hair transplant with scalp micropigmentation is a great idea, because with this procedure, the desired density can be achieved with ease. And because the hair will already be short cropped post the transplant, the scalp micropigmentation will only look all the more natural, along with it.

What is the procedure for revision or reversal?

With time, the ink of the tattoo will start to fade, which is when you will have to return for touch up. In addition, if you have baldness, chances are that new bald spots will keep appearing and you will need to cover those too. However, there are some people who might want a reversal, because with age, they might want a new hairline. The revision could include a changed hairline, changed side hair shape, addition of side burns and so on. Because the pigment being used is on a superficial level, the removal is also much easier, as opposed to a regular tattoo.

Our Patients Testify

"I was confused about getting a hair transplant. But then I came across AK Clinics while searching. I went to their clinic and had a consultation session with Dr. Dua. And after walking out of his clinic, I was assured that I am getting my hair transplant done from AK Clinics. "

How much will SMP cost?

The cost of the scalp micropigmentation procedure will be dependent on a few factors:

  • When there have been multiple transplant sessions, but the result is still nowhere near what was desired
  • When there is diffused thinning
  • When the patient does not want the surgical option
  • When the alopecia is extensive such as alopecia universalis or alopecia totalis
  • When the alopecia is caused by cancer treatment
  • When the patient has genetic alopecia

While no clinic will be able to give you a precise amount right at the beginning, most of the good clinics will give you a fair idea of how much it will cost. The final billing might vary by about 5-10%.

Questions Asked By The Patients


Is SMP Permanent?

No. as is the case with any tattoo like procedure, the colour will start to fade over time and if you want to maintain the procedure, you will need to go back for revision procedures.

Is SMP Painful?

The needles used for the procedure are extremely thin, which is why the pain is minimal. But at AK Clinics, we will offer you the options of local anaesthesia or sedation, should you require the same. Normally, a numbing gel will be applied to the scalp, post which the pain and discomfort should be minimal.

Can SMP Be Reversed?

Yes. You can reverse the pigmented spots on your scalp with the help of laser treatment.

Is SMP Expensive?

The scalp micropigmentation cost in Bangalore is actually much lesser than a hair transplant, and because the results are visible almost instantaneously, a lot of people prefer this procedure..
