Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a treatment where layered pigments are implanted into the scalp to replicate hair follicles. This adds hair density to thinning areas and creates an illusion of thicker, stronger hair.  As well as camouflaging hair loss, if the hairline is receding, it can give back a natural hairline and a natural shaved head look.  Scalp Micropigmentation effects are immediate, permanent, realistic, hassle-free, non-invasive, and cost-effective.

All of the pigments and colours used are expertly blended and colour-matched to your own hair. We only use medical-grade pigments, that are made up of natural ingredients, specifically created for SMP treatments.

Scalp Micropigmentation is a long-lasting cosmetic solution that is non-surgical, non-invasive, and painless. SMP treatment is available for different types of hair loss, including pattern baldness, failed hair transplants, and scarring, receding, or thinning hair. Suitable for both men and women.

Scalp Micropigmentation can be used either as a standalone procedure or combined with a hair transplant to enhance a surgical result. If your hair is thinning and you would like to keep the length without a shaved look, then it is possible to create the illusion of hair density. By building up treatments and shades of micro-dots around and in-between existing hair, SMP is perfect for hairline thinning and post hair-transplant procedures.

Adding density is also very common for females looking to achieve a thicker, fuller-looking scalp. SMP can be added to not only the parting but also to side profiles to give more definition and a stronger hairline.

Densification SMP works effectively for men and women alike with longer hair, who are suffering from the process of hair loss or hair thinning. This is commonly experienced at the crown for men and at the side temples or the hair parting for women. The technique of implanting pigment to simulate hair follicles is used to fill in sparse areas of hair disguising the scalp skin and is covered with your longer hair so it is not easily noticeable by others.


This replicates the appearance of shaven hair by implanting custom-blended medical-grade pigments to create the illusion of hair follicles, gives back a natural, youthful hairline, and is blended into the natural remaining hair. Please see the Nordwood Scale for typical pattern baldness examples. The cost and time involved depend on the size of the area to be covered. Please get in touch with Justine to discuss.


SMP can conceal scars from hair transplants, surgery, burns, and injuries. As hair transplants (due to hair loss and thinning hair) are becoming increasingly popular, so too is the need to conceal the scars this procedure leaves behind. Scalp Micropigmentation can camouflage the scar and blend it into the natural hair.

What is Scalp Micropigmentation?2022-04-23T18:04:31+01:00

Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-invasive treatment that uses detailed micro-needles to deposit pigment into the scalp. The result creates the appearance of tiny hair follicles or short hair stubble. If you are starting to thin, recede, or if you are completely bald, we can give you the look of a short buzz cut.

How many treatments should I expect / how long does Scalp Micropigmentation take?2022-04-23T18:05:25+01:00

Scalp Micropigmentation should never be considered a one-treatment process. Most clients can expect between 2-4 sessions to complete their treatment depending on the extent of hair loss or scarring. These treatments are usually spaced about 10-20 days apart. Each treatment session typically takes 2-4 hours depending on your degree of hair loss.

How long do the results last?2022-04-23T18:06:35+01:00

After completion of your treatment (2-4 sessions) a client should expect the strength of the color to last 3-5 years. Over time, a client will very gradually begin to notice slight lightening (not discolouring) of the treatment. A colour boost / refresh is recommended every 3-5 years.

Is Scalp Micropigmentation detectable?2022-04-23T18:07:18+01:00

Scalp Micropigmentation has become such an effective hair loss solution because of its consistently natural and undetectable results.

Do I need to take time off work?2022-04-23T18:08:14+01:00

Scalp Micropigmentation is non-invasive and requires no downtime. In most cases, you will not need to take any extended time away from work, school, or other functions. After treatment, it is common to notice slight redness on the scalp for 2-3 days post-session. This redness subsides quickly and most clients return to work either right away or within a couple of days. Clients are also allowed to wear hats or headwear should they feel the need.

How do I choose a hairline?2022-04-23T18:09:11+01:00

Is Scalp Micropigmentation permanent?2022-04-23T18:10:00+01:00

Scalp Micropigmentation is a form of permanent cosmetics or permanent makeup. Often referred to as a cosmetic hair or scalp tattoo, this treatment typically lasts 3-5 years. After that time, a client may experience some slight fading, which is why a colour boost is recommended. This cosmetic solution will not wash off but can be tweaked as years go on.

Will it change color like tattoos?2022-04-23T18:10:46+01:00

No. Scalp Micropigmentation is a form of permanent cosmetics, but unlike tattoo ink, the pigment is designed to fall within the same color spectrum of short-cut hair. The pigment contains no additional colorants or additives and will only lighten, not discolor over an extended time.

Scalp Micropigmentation also utilizes different equipment than traditional tattooing, ensuring the needle and machine are designed specifically for micropigmentation of the scalp.

If I have hair left, can I leave it long?2022-04-23T18:11:31+01:00

Depending upon the pattern and extent of the thinning hair, some clients are able to maintain a longer length of hair. Scalp Micropigmentation can help thicken areas so that less of the scalp is seen showing through. However, if there is a strong pattern of hair loss or just not a lot of hair density left, the client is recommended to crop it shorter.

Will Scalp Micropigmentation work with gray hair?2022-04-23T18:12:12+01:00

Yes, those with gray hair can still benefit from the scalp micropigmentation procedure. First, most clients are recommended to cut their hair to a short buzzed length. When this is done, gray hair does not appear as gray because the hair root itself is darker. Hair only shows gray as it gets longer. Second, a gray-scale pigment is used that can be adjusted in shade to blend with lighter hair tones. I simply create a lighter dilution for blending into the existing gray hairs.

Can Scalp Micropigmentation camouflage my transplant scar?2022-04-23T18:13:11+01:00

Yes! By replicating tiny hair follicles inside the scarring and blending the color around the scarring area, transplant and surgical scars can see a massive improvement in concealment.

Can I still use Propecia and/or Rogaine after my treatment?2022-04-23T18:17:40+01:00

Clients can continue using Propecia during and after their scalp pigmentation procedure. Rogaine (topical minoxidil) should be suspended during the course of treatment and for 30 days post your final session. This is to ensure the proper healing and settling of pigment without interference of the chemicals found in Rogaine foam.

… for your scalp micropigmentation procedure

2 days before

Don’t consume alcohol at least 48 hours before the procedure. Alcohol is a blood thinner, making you bleed more. Avoid medication, such as aspirin and ibuprofen, as well. These also increase the risk of bleeding because they prevent the blood from clotting. Tea, coffee, fish oils, and energy drinks are also blood thinners.

The night before

Get a good night’s sleep to make sure you’re in good shape for the treatment. And make sure you’re properly hydrated at least a day prior to allow your skin to accept the ink better. Exfoliate your scalp to remove any dead skin cells.

On the day

Have a hearty breakfast on the day of your procedure to build your stamina. Wash your head also since it’ll be a while before you can take a shower after getting the tattoo. Don’t exercise or use any oily, waxy products on your head. The excess oil can prevent the pigment from retaining.

What happens after?

You may be excited to flaunt your new look, but your scalp is still sensitive a few days after the treatment. Even though SMP is non-invasive, it still requires thorough aftercare on your part.

Immediate aftercare

Skip any activity that would expose your head to water, including swimming, showering, and even exercising. This also means avoiding any task that would cause you to sweat, from hiking, sauna, and others. You can wash your scalp after three days without shampoo or soap. After a week, cleanse with mild soap.
Your scalp will feel itchy as it heals but refrain from picking at it. it’s best to let it heal on its own to prevent the spread of bacteria and ensure that the pigment stays.

Long-term aftercare

Avoid any prolonged exposure to the sun during the first month after your procedure. This will prevent any further damage while your skin is still sensitive. If you can’t avoid going out in the daytime, lather on some sunscreen and wear a hat.

Make it a habit to moisturize the tattooed skin with a lightweight cream or gel to help the micropigmentation settle. Also, avoid tanning for a while because it may fade the pigment quickly.

The second session of your SMP should happen 10-20 days after the first.

Once your scalp has fully healed, the micropigmentation should last 3-5 years, depending on your lifestyle and skin. Also, remember that although SMP is a non-invasive procedure, you should only go to a specialist with a certification of SMP training.
