What Is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Hair loss, thinning, or receding hairlines can be a source of concern for many, impacting self-esteem and confidence. But there's a groundbreaking solution that's changing the narrative for men and women: Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP). Dive into the transformative world of SMP - a cutting-edge approach that recreates the appearance of fuller hair or a natural-looking shaved look.
Often described as a Hair Tattoo or Scalp Tattooing, SMP involves the precise application of pigment impressions on the scalp, mimicking the look of natural hair follicles. This non-surgical procedure offers a realistic, long-lasting solution for various hair loss concerns, from pattern baldness to diffused hair loss and other types of alopecia to hair transplant scarring and more.

Understand Your Treatment Plan
How long will treatment take?
Typically for most clients and SMP treatments, you can expect 2-4 sessions, spaced out a minimum of 2 weeks apart. Each session will take approx. 2-4 hours depending on the area to be treated
Is the Scalp Micropigmentation procedure painful?
This varies from person-to-person as everyone’s pain threshold is different. Some clients feel some minor discomfort and a scratchy sensation, yet others don’t feel anything at all.
How long does Scalp Micropigmentation typically last?
Completed treatments will last for 2-5 years and then require a “top-up” to keep the SMP looking fresh. Factors that can impact SMP fading can include differing skin types (oily/dry) and how these respond to environmental and individual factors such as exposure to UV and/or sun damage, age & your general health.
Is Scalp Micropigmentation the same as a tattoo?
The answer is NO. Scalp Micropigmentation is different than a traditional tattoo, with different techniques, equipment and pigments used.
