SMP is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves the application of tiny, simulated hair follicles on the scalp to create the illusion of a closely shaved or fuller head of hair.
SMP is performed by using specialised micro-needles to deposit pigment into the upper layer of the scalp, replicating the appearance of hair follicles. This technique creates a realistic, natural-looking hairline and adds density to areas of hair loss.
