Does SMP damage / destroy existing hairs ?

No, Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) does not destroy existing hairs. SMP is a minimallyinvasive cosmetic procedure that involves the application of pigmented dots to the scalp to create the appearance of hair follicles. The process does not interfere with the growth or health of existing hair.

During SMP, the pigmented dots are placed in the superficial layers of the scalp, above the hair follicles. The procedure is carefully performed to ensure that it does not damage or disrupt the existing hair in any way.

In fact, SMP can be used to enhance the overall appearance of existing hair by creating the illusion of density and fullness. By strategically placing the pigmented dots between the natural hair, SMP can help blend the scalp color with the existing hair color, giving the impression of thicker hair.

It's important to note that SMP should be performed by a skilled and experienced practitioner who understands the intricacies of the procedure. A qualified SMP practitioner will take precautions to ensure the safety of your existing hair during the treatment, and they will provide aftercare instructions to help maintain the health of your scalp and hair.

Also please note that many people actually use microneedling at a comparable depth to SMP application depth for the purpose of stimulating hair follicle growth. SO if anything, the superficial needle punctures can stimulate and promote hair regrowth.

Newport SMP is the premier Scalp micropigmentation clinic in the US. They are one of the very select SMP clinic with Nurse SMP artist. The entire facility and application process is performed at the highest standard of care and by medical standards.
