Scalp Micropigmentation: Masking Scars, Creating a Hairline, Restoring Confidence

Anne Moratto | May 18, 2017 | 8:11 AM

Scalp Micro USA (SMU) offers a solution for people suffering from general hair loss, scarring, and alopecia with a treatment called scalp micropigmentation. With this service, tiny follicle-like deposits of pigment are applied to give color to the scalp. For scars, this creates a blending effect with the surrounding hair.  The treatment can also restore receding hairlines to provide framing to the face.

It’s a drug-free,  non-invasive, permanent solution to hair loss that delivers immediate results.

The founder of SMU is Matt Iulo. He experienced the treatment at 22, and has performed it on over 3,000 people. More than 30% of his patients suffer from scars. In addition to treating patients, Iulo offers trainings to young professionals, ranging from estheticians to medical professionals. He plans to train 100 people this year.

"A lot of the people who come to see me have hair transplant scarring and are looking to hide the scars from that surgery," Iulo says.  In the video, he demonstrates this process of masking a transplant scar on the scalp.
