Scalp Micropigmentation is the best alternative hair loss treatment to wigs and systems, powders and fibers and hair transplant surgery.
Scalp Micropigmentation or SMP, is a new and growing industry whereby the SMP Artist implants thousands of pigmented, simulated hair follicles into the scalp using classic tattoo methods. However, the size and shape of the tattoo needle differs, as well as the pigments used and placement of the pigment.
Scalp Micropigmentation hair loss clinics are rapidly popping up in Toronto, Ontario, however all clients should be aware that SMP for Hair Loss is relatively still new, despite claims from companies that they are the leaders in the industry and claims that they have been doing SMP for hair loss for years. There are only a handful of SMP Artists that have been doing this for longer than 5 years, and only a few that have been doing Scalp Micropigmentation for hair loss, thinning hair or balding for more than 10 years.
Because this industry is rapidly growing, and SMP is the new alternative hair loss treatment, there are companies that want to profit greatly from this and want to expand quickly so that their name is known all over the world for SMP and Scalp Micropigmentation in the Billion Dollar Hair Loss industry.
Simple, it is a great alternative treatment to other more invasive procedures such as hair transplants, and much more realistic and less time consuming to maintain than powders and fibers. Hair Loss Clinics are adding this new alternative treatment to their list of procedures, and Doctors, Hair Loss Clinics and pop up SMP clinics are now aware that this can bring in a greater source of revenue for them as the average treatment cost for a full frontal and crown area treatment ranges between $3000-$5000, depending on the hair loss clinic and the experience of the SMP Artist.
Tino Barbone, lead SMP Artist at The Scalp Micropigmentation Center Hair Loss Clinic, has studied SMP since 2014, and has been in practice ever since. Tino Barbone has been training, and has reviewed several types of SMP methods in the industry, and has combined these methods to come out with the most advanced system in the hair loss industry. “By learning and combining different SMP techniques, I’ve been able to come out with what I believe is the best practice and technique in Toronto. The results speak for themselves”. Reviews of Tino Barbone and The Scalp Micropigmentation Center can be seen on their website, and other review sites, however, it is always best to avoid reviews and actually attend the clinic for a consultation with the actual SMP Artist that will be doing your treatment.
Hair Loss Clinics are now adding SMP to their menu, however, some are outsourced and some are trained from within by other companies. SMP is a great adjunct therapy to hair loss clinics because they are able to increase patient satisfaction rates, especially with hair transplants. Hair Transplants are hit and miss, often times leaving clients with very thin hair. SMP for hair loss or thinning hair can add hair density, and thus hair loss clinics can offer this new method to increase hair density in Men and Women who have had good results with their hair transplant, but are lacking density.
