What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

The world’s fastest growing hair loss solution since the 1980’s, scalp micropigmentation, often called SMP, a hair tattoo or hairline tattoo, has been chosen by nearly a million men and women worldwide to hide thinning hair and even total baldness.

We’ll help you to find a leading hair loss tattoo specialist in your area, and you too can rock the shaved head look, and put thinning, receding hair well and truly behind you.

Scalp micropigmentation is non-invasive, has almost universal appeal and offers instantaneous, permanent results. A shorter duration variation known as tricopigmentation was also developed to further broaden its appeal.

Scalp micropigmentation is the only cost-effective and widely accessible hair loss fix to offer guaranteed results, backed by thousands of before and after photos. It is easy to understand why so many men and women worldwide have opted to have an SMP procedure.

The cost of a scalp micropigmentation treatment varies from clinic to clinic, and also depends heavily on the clients requirements. However, remember the best results can only be achieved by an experienced technician who has received adequate training, and has a number of good reviews from previous clients.

Numerous terms are used to describe this process. These terms include scalp pigmentation, micro scalp pigmentation, SMP, MSP, hair follicle replication, tricopigmentation and hair tattoo. Please note that all these terms refer to the same basic scalp technique.

Is SMP the real deal?

For most treatments on men, SMP involves replicating the appearance of shaven hair, by introducing thousands of tiny pigment deposits into the epidermis of the scalp.

When applied by a skilled technician, the recipient appears as if they have a full head of hair shaved to a very short length, hiding the appearance of pattern baldness or even complete baldness.

For women (and many men) who wish to keep their existing hair at a longer length, the process is applied to the scalp between the hair to reduce the contrast between the scalp skin and the remaining hair.

Scalp micropigmentation is also used to conceal imperfections such as hair transplant scars, and long term hair loss conditions including alopecia, in all its various forms.
