We get asked this question a lot here in our practice in Singapore. And we are here to give you the answer you're looking for today.
The answer is: NO.
In fact, SMP (Scalp Micropigmentation) has had a good 20 over years of history to be used on the human scalps to address hair loss issues. It is believed that SMP was first developed by Dr, Alvaro C. Tranquina at the Hair Transplant Clinic of Sacramento in the early 1990's. The first SMP clinic is also believed to have been created in 2002 and we can see that SMP is now the TOP, if not one of the most popular hair loss solution in countries like US, UK and Australia.
SMP Singapore is the first and only practice in Singapore that adopts the American SMP technique which is regarded as the best technique by industry standard due to its very mature history and popularity of SMP in the USA.
