What is Scalp MicroPigmentation?

Scalp MicroPigmentation, or SMP as it is commonly known, is not just a regular hair tattoo but a highly specialised process during which tiny deposits of pigment are positioned within the dermal layer of the skin. When applied by a skilled practitioner, these deposits replicate the look of real shaven hair. Our SMP treatments are as flexible as you need them to be. Typically our clients are able to specify the shape of their frontal hairline and side profiles, request a defined or super-soft “broken” hairline, opt for a more receded look or use lighter pigments for a softer look overall. A short touch-up session may be required for some clients from time to time, however in such cases, these sessions are usually at least five years apart.

What is the process?


You will require a initial consultation upon which you will receive a accurate price as this depends on the areas in which you require treatment. You will also be informed of how many sessions you will need as most clients experience some fading immediately following treatment, which is a normal functional part of the process. Patch tests for pigments are necessary a minimum of 48 hours before your treatment.


Can SMP conceal scars, alopecia and other imperfections?

Scalp MicroPigmentation is commonly used to conceal alopecia areata, however other forms such as alopecia totalis and traction alopecia are also straightforward to camouflage using SMP. When treating alopecia our aim is to provide the client with peace of mind and renewed confidence, regardless of whether or not the real hair returns.



How long does scalp pigmentation last?

If however you want any slight fading to be put right straight away, every 2-4 yearsis more realistic. The average client with the average treatment, living the average lifestyle, will need another scalp micropigmentation session every 3-6 years.
Who is micro hair pigmentation suited for?

Men and women with complete hair lossMen who already have a shaven look / shaven haircut, but want more density effectMen and women with hair loss where the skin is just starting to show (ie not when the skin is already very visible).Scars soften after an FUT or strip hair transplantAttention: minimum age 18 years.

What does micro hair pigmentation really look like?

Although pigments obviously are not real hair, we generally get replies from our clients that nobody notices anything unusual from a normal distance. The pictures of our before and after gallery are a good reference, however please note that in real life light conditions change and your head moves, making the result much more impressive than on still images.

General recommendation for keeping your pigments in good shape

  • While in the sun for +15 minutes use sun cream factor 30+ or wear a hat.
  • Do not use a sunbed with the pigmented area exposed
  • Daily sweating also fades the pigments faster
