Scalp Micropigmentation

Not all patients are suitable candidates for hair transplant surgery and some don’t like surgery. The good news is Asian Hair Restoration Center offers scalp micropigmentation ( SMP) in Manila Philippines to camouflage their balding and thinning scalps of men and women. SMP has been attempted initially by cosmetic service providers, not until recently has this technology become an art form now used by dermatologists- hair restoration specialists like Dr. Arambulo with better outcomes.

Scalp Micropigmention, a permanent or semi - permanent cosmetic tattoo, a combination of masterful technique and art form ,has become a popular non- surgical option to create the natural look of a fuller hair. It is ideal for patients who are not candidates for hair transplant surgery and it can be used also as an adjunct to hair transplant procedure. Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) mimics the short hairs of a closely shaved scalp.


Just like hair transplant procedure , scalp micropigmentation requires knowledge, innate artistic passion and a highly experienced tattooist or micropigmentation provider to generate excellent cosmetic outcomes.


From the experience of Dr. Arambulo , the tactile skills developed through experience with the choice of instrument that deliver the right color of pigment at the right depth and duration of injections, are,the important factors to simulate the human hair for camouflage in partial and complete hair loss of the scalp. SMP, therefore is an alternative non surgical procedure to camouflage thinning scalp in Male and Female commonly with Androgenic Alopecia.


Other applications of SMP are: it produces hair density effect, in patients with poor donor density requiring less grafts harvest ,it is used to conceal a wide linear scar on the back after poor Strip hair transplant surgery done elsewhere , the scalp scars from trauma ,infection and even the small white spots scars after FUE .

In addition, SMP can improve the see through donor areas from FUE over extractions and in patients with poor donor density, the desired results can still be achieved requiring less grafts harvest .

As a dermatologist, Dr. Arambulo says, SMP is useful in a wide variety of hair pathologies, medical and surgical alopecia of the scalp ,like, vitiligo and chronic Alopecia and even in scarring alopecia and we believe that SMP is a safe and effective procedure but proper selection of patient is also essential to a natural look undetectable by other people.

At Asian Hair Restoration Center , SMP has become a standardised offering for cosmetic hair procedures either for primary use or as a secondary use to augment hair transplantation.
