STP Overview: Scalp Tricho Pigmentation… An Advanced Form of Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) Scalp Tricho Pigmentation (STP) is a medical tattoo process that recreates an appearance of naturally growing hair for people who are balding or have thinning hair. e goal is to exactly replicate the appearance of shaved hair follicles or stubble of hair. It can be used to create a shaved look, thicken thinning hair, or camouage scars. It can also be used to give the shadowing eect for females with thinning hair to make hair appear more dense and cover exposed scalp. The impressions are extremely discrete and are comparable in diameter to a single hair or follicular unit. It is a similar methodology to a regular tattoo or permanent cosmetics procedure, but, the pigment is not laid as deeply into the skin, and the machine and pigments themselves are far more sophisticated.
There are currently 3 main ways that SMP can be used:
1. To create a shaved look that mimics the look of shaved or closely cropped head of hair with the appearance
2. To camouage scars from either Strip or FUE surgery
3. To “thicken” or increase the illusion of density in areas of thinning hair by decreasing the color contrast between scalp and hair. is is similar to the eect of cosmetic concealers like Toppix but with the advantage not having to be applied daily. is can be particularly useful in women. It can also be useful. It can also be very benecial for patients who have undergone previous surgeries, but who are still looking thinner than they would.
Scalp micropigmenation is a temporary procedure that needs to be repeated once every year. If your hair continues to thin and there is complete loss of hair, the tattoo will fade accordingly. e pigmentation can be done before or aer hair transplant as well to increase density effect.
Using pigment to simulate hair requires very specialized needles and ink formulations. is process cannot be done through the use of regular tattoo practices. Common tattoo needles are too round. And using this to apply ink would create very large, obvious looking dots. Typical Scalp Micropigmentation treatments not only use specially shaped needles to create realistic looking hair cross sections, but also attempt to use specially formulated ink that would oer more resilience to fading due to sunlight. The depth of the pigment injections also matters for the long term quality of the color. Dark brown or black
pigment can turn into a bluish or greenish shade over time. is has to do with how deeply the particles are embedded with the skin’s layers, rather than how the ink is made..
TRICOPIGMENTATION FOR THE MOST IDEAL SCALP PIGMENTATION RESULTS
Micropigment is injected very supercially for most natural eect and the ink used is typically temporary, fading in about 12- years. Individuals who chose Trichopigmentation do not have to worry about facing possible embarrassment resulting
from color changes that occur on their scalp. Some fading may occur. But touch up procedures can help maintain the desired color saturation. e supercial injections of Trichopigmentation ensure that brown will remain brown and black will continue to remain a true blackTrichopigmentation can compliment a transplant surgery in both male and female patients.
