Top 10 things you need to know about Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) in Guwahati, Assam

Smp or scalp micropigmentation is a relatively new concept introduced for the first time in Guwahati, Assam at Arogyam Hair Transplant Clinic. The best instruments and inks are used in Arogyam to obtain the best results. Read on to know more about scalp micropigmentation:

1.      SMP or scalp micropigmentation is basically a tattooing process of the scalp in which tiny dots of permanent ink are placed in between hairs or on empty areas of scalp to replicate the look of hairs.

2.      A special injector is used which is similar to the injectors used in tattooing to place the ink in the dermal layer of skin, but the injector tip is broader in SMP than the normal tattoo as it has to be the size of human hair.

3.      The small dots are the size of a human hair and hide the appearance of the bare scalp, making it look as if there is a dot of human hair. This makes it appear as if there is hair in the region.

4.      SMP is thus a method of camouflaging and not actual growth of hair, but it works as if new hair has grown in the area. By covering the bare areas of scalp, hair density appears to increase and the area of baldness or thinning hair gets hidden.

5.      The dots of SMP last from 5 to 10 years. There are differences in the lasting depending on individual differences. Once they have faded, SMP will be needed again.

6.      SMP is most useful in cases of thinning hair, i.e., where there is hair but the scalp shows through the hair. Hence it is most useful in cases of early diffuse baldness in men and in female baldness. SMP combined with hair transplant can completely transform female pattern baldness.

7.      SMP can also be used in eyebrows to thicken the look of the eyebrows, and in scars in beards and moustaches. It is also very useful after hair transplant to cover the donor area when it is thinned out making it look natural again.

8.      SMP is sometimes used in the completely bald head also, where it gives the appearance of a closely shaven head of hair, but achieving a natural look can be difficult in a completely bald person. It is best to do hair transplant first in such cases and then do SMP in between.

9.      Arogyam Hair Clinic uses natural inks which are imported from the US and are very long lasting without any colour change.

10.  Cost of SMP varies according to the area covered. Covering the whole head would cost around Rs 6000, while it may be slightly lesser in females. Come for consultation to know the exact cost.

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.
