What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-surgical solution that minimises the appearance of baldness and hair loss. The permanent tattoo replicates the look of hair follicles by implanting pigment into the dermal layer of the skin to give a natural looking result.

For men who are considering hair transplantation but may not have enough donor hair, Scalp Micropigmentation is a great alternative, not to mention fashionable and creates a ‘buzz cut look’ that many celebrities or men have naturally. At a fraction of the cost, Scalp Micropigmentation gives instant results with no scaring or need for life-long medication to maintain the results, unlike with the hair transplant procedure.

How does the process work

You will be invited for an initial consultation where we will discuss the SMP procedure, age-appropriate hairlines, your suitability for the treatment and your expectations.

The procedure will normally take 3 to 4 sessions and be carried out over a period of 3 months. You may experience slight redness if your skin is particularly sensitive immediately after the treatment however, it will be subtle and will dissipate within 12 to 24 hours.

Over the years, the effects will begin to lighten and a small colour boost may be needed to keep the results looking fresh. We appreciate that every clients needs are different, therefore pricing will be discussed during the consultation. An indication can be based around the Norwood scale for hair-loss.
