More and more celebrities are sporting buzz cuts, and most of them used to be bald or showing early signs of hair loss. Scalp micropigmentation can give you that same celebrity buzz cut — even if you’ve gone completely bald. With just a short trip to Nevada, you can be sporting a full head of hair and saying goodbye to your baldness.
Getting that Celebrity Buzz Cut
In Nevada, scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a non-invasive procedure similar to tattooing. It can give you the appearance of an elegant buzz cut without having to face the risk of a hair transplant procedure. Unlike Minoxidil and other hair growth products, SMPs work in every stage of hair loss. It can mask bald spots or create the illusion of more hair.
SMPs are relatively permanent solutions. You might need to touch up after a few years, but you won’t need to follow rigorous regimens to keep up appearances. Unlike wigs and hairpieces, you can go about your business, play sports, even swim without fear of exposing your baldness. You just need to sign up for a procedure, and you can leave Nevada feeling and looking like a new man.
Is It Safe?
An SMP treatment is a relatively safe procedure. You can stay conscious throughout the procedure, but topical or local anesthesia will probably be used to dull the pain. The process is similar to tattooing, but instead of creating art, it creates the illusion of hair.
Once you are fully prepared, experts who specialize in mimicking the appearance of hair will start working on your scalp. Pigments will be layered into your scalp’s dermal layer simulating the appearance of newly grown hair follicles. Dyes will be applied close to the skin but not deep enough to draw blood. In this regard, an SMP treatment is even safer than tattooing. Procedures will usually last from 3 to 5 hours and could involve a little bit of discomfort. Once the treatment is over, you can go straight to your hotel room and rest.
Recovery and Maintenance
You won’t need an extended rest and recovery period for an SMP treatment. However, you will need to avoid getting moisture on your scalp for at least two to three days. During this period, humidity can affect the appearance and coloration of the pigments, so you should take extra care to keep your scalp dry.
You should avoid exercise or any activities that could cause excessive sweating, which is fine because you’re also not allowed to take a shower. Once the pigments have set and your scalp has recovered, you can go about your business as usual. You don’t need any special regimen to maintain your treatment; just avoid excessive UV exposure as this could dull the color of the pigments. Wear a hat or a cap or apply high-factor sunscreen when you’re outdoors.
SMP treatment can make you look younger, healthier, and more attractive. Celebrities are getting SMP buzz cuts, and you can get that same look with just a short trip to Vegas.
