Scalp Micropigmentation

Arogyam Hair Transplant Clinic is into its seventh year of operation from 2012 and 700+ patients have been operated upon and more than 5000 treated with other means effectively till date from all over Assam and the North-East including Meghalaya, Nagaland, Arunachal, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura. Patients have also been treated from other states of India like Jharkhand, Bihar, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, etc along with NRIs from UK, USA, New Zealand, Canada, Nepal, Bangladesh and Bhutan.
Dr. P. J. Mazumdar introduces in Guwahati, Assam and the North East the most advanced technique for hair transplantation – the Blunt Motorized FUE method – which is extremely effective, painfree and highly comfortable for the patient.

SMP or scalp micropigmentation is the process in which tiny dots of permanent ink are deposited into the dermal layer of the skin to replicate the look of human hair.

SMP is basically a tattooing process. In SMP, a special injector is used which has a very fine tip. Ink is loaded into the injector and the ink is then deposited into the upper layer of the dermis at the required areas. Multiple small dots are made whose diameter is the same as a human hair. This hides the appearance of a bald scalp and instead makes it appear as if there is hair in these regions also.

The dots of SMP last from 5 years to 10 years. Individual differences in the lasting of the process are present depending on a person's skin type, circulation, etc.

SMP is a camouflage process, that is, it is a cover-up of bald areas. It can however be very effective.

SMP is most useful in cases where there is thinning of hair and the bald scalp shows through the hair. In such cases, SMP covers up the bald areas and the thinning hair is not noticeable anymore. Hence it is most effective in cases of female pattern baldness, where there is diffuse thinning of hair all over the scalp. SMP can be very useful in such cases. It is also similarly useful in males where there is thinning of hair in some areas.

SMP can also be used on the completely bald scalp where it gives the appearance of a finely shaven head with normal hair.

It can also be used in the back of the head after a big hair transplant procedure to cover up any appearance of thinned out hair at the donor area. It can be used to cover up the scar of FUT or STRIP method hair transplant. It can be used to cover up scars on the head or moustache or beard bearing areas, and to give the appearance of thicker moustache or beard.

Cost of SMP varies according to the area to be covered. A small scar on the lip for example would cost only about Rs 1000 while the full scalp in female pattern baldness would cost Rs 5000. In case of female pattern baldness where the whole scalp is to be covered, the process is done in two sessions. The whole process is done under local anesthesia, and so it is virtually painless or with minimal pain. The process can take just a few minutes for a small scar up to two hours for the whole scalp.

Quality assuarance

Arogyam Hair Transplant Clinic takes several steps to ensure that quality is maintained for each and every patient. The key to quality maintenance is to implement quantizable quality standards and maintain proper documentation and review of processes. Downtown Hospital is an ISO 9001:2008 and NABH accredited hospital which demands strict adherence to quality control.Steps taken are:

100% safety assurance: all procedures are done in the main OT of Downtown Hospital with its full complement of anesthesiologists and critical care specialists. Hence patients are assured of full safety standards at the same level as that of major surgeries including transplant surgeries.

100% sterilization assurance: since procedures are done in the major OT full sterilization is maintained. Fumigation is done every week and swab tests are done to check for contamination.

Best instrumentation: Arogyam Hair Transplant Clinic uses the best available instruments like 6X Heine Loupe for precision and accuracy, Blunt Titanium punches which avoids damage and transection of the grafts, Choi implanters to standardise the process of planting and prevent damage during planting, Major OT level sterilization, fumigation and autoclaving of all instruments, etc.

Efficiency count: Efficiency counts for FUE like transection rates and speed of transplant are noted and documented for each case and reviewed every 10 cases. Arogyam Hair Transplant achieves international standards of transection and speed consistently.

Correct recepient density: To ensure correct recepient density, 'density stamps' are used to ensure proper density is achieved. Angle and direction of hair is meticulously maintained.

Out of body time: The out of body time, the time for which the graft is outside the body, is the most critical factor for success in hair transplant. Aroyam Hair Transplant follows a special procedure to ensure that this time is the minimum. This is done by doing only 500-600grafts at a time and then replanting them. This ensures that time out of body is less than or equal to1 hour only. This is the shortest period acheivable. Many centers do upto 2000-2500 grafts at a time so that time out of body goes upto 4-5 hours. We are proud of our time out of body quantum. Though this may cause some sacrifice of time but results are more important.

Follow up: follow up period is critical for the patient when there are many doubts and anxieties in his mind. In our clinic, Dr. P. J. Mazumdar will remain always accessible to the patient directly on his personal cell for any questions the patient may have during this period.
