The new innovative non-surgical procedure, Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP), is being done by Doctor Parsa Mohebi, medical director of US Hair Restoration. This procedure helps patients improve the appearance of the area that is balding and helps minimize the visibility of most scalp scars. This innovative procedure has helped many patients overcome the daily stress that is associated with baldness.

Dr. Parsa Mohebi started doing this procedure in 2012. He said, “During this time we’ve been doing some research to find out the best practice for this procedure. At this point, I can say that we have a final and most effective way of doing the scalp micro pigmentation for treatment of patterned hair loss in men and women and also to camouflage scalp scars.”

Dr. Mohebi added, “As a hair transplant surgeon, I’m dealing with all different kinds of hair loss conditions, many of them can be treated with hair transplant surgery, but others may need different options. Each patient has a different hair loss condition. Some patients lose their hair secondary to auto-immune disorders. Hair transplant may not be an option for many of those conditions. If the patients are not eligible for a hair transplant, SMP might be a great option. SMP can also help when hair loss patients do not have enough donor hair and prefer to shave their head. Although, some patient’s balding scalp is so evident, that they are still not comfortable doing so. This is why SMP is a wonderful solution for these people that want to eliminate the appearance of baldness without having hair.”

Precision and an artistic visualization are essential skills that are necessary for this type of cosmetic procedure. Dermal pigments are selectively matched to the patient’s hair color. The size of the pigmented area matches with the diameter and angulation of hair, making this a vital phase in achieving the finest results. The insertion of the pigments is performed very superficially, having the needle penetrate only about one millimeter into the dermis. Depth control minimizes pain and discomfort as well as minimizes the recovery time. SMP treatment for hair loss is not permanent. Touch ups will be required, but its timing will vary for each individual.

According to Dr. Mohebi the best candidates for this procedure are those who have to shave their head, but still want to see the shade of patterned baldness. We create the appearance of having hair by using scalp micro pigmentation, so the hair loss patients can feel more comfortable with the appearance of their shaved head.

People who have extensive scars on their scalp or hair bearing areas of the face such as beard and mustache can benefit from this procedure. Women with female patterned hair loss may also be good candidates for this procedure. Many women with extensive hair loss undergo hair transplants, but still do not have adequate donor hair to create the appearance of a full head of hair. SMP for women with hair loss could be a great adjunction to a hair transplant surgery.

Dr. Mohebi’s success rate has been very high with this current cosmetic procedure.
