Scalp Pigmentation


Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) is a revolutionary non surgical alternative for both male and female patients suffering with hair loss or scarring. SMP involves the use of a digitally controlled needle which applies medical grade pigment into the upper dermis to simulate short shaved follicles. This treatment can also be used for patients suffering with scarring alopecia, alopecia areata, trauma scars or repairing older hair transplants, thus creating the illusion of a thicker and fuller head of hair which previously may have been unachievable with other hair loss solutions.

When recreating a fuller head of hair the hairline is the main focal point and will determine the overall look. If the hairline is not done correctly the treatment may look unnatural and fake. Our experienced technician will work with you to design, mark, measure and approve each hairline before any pigment is applied. Some patients may wish for a very defined hairline, but we often advise them to try a more softer natural look that takes into account age-appropriateness and ethnicity.

Scalp Micro Pigmentation is a cost effective hair loss solution which can also enhance hair transplant surgery, by infilling between the follicles with pigmented stubble hairs. This treatment can be used in combination with hair FUE or FUT transplant surgery for patient’s who do not have enough donor hair, or for those looking to improve their overall visual density.

SMP has been used on a number of patients looking to camouflage scarring; either older strip scars, large punch scarrings or even older style plug transplant scars. The pigment is placed directly into the scar tissue to create follicles to seamlessly blending in with the surrounding hairs.
