What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp Micropigmentation is also known as “SMP” or “Medical Hairline Tattoo” It is a non-surgical, cosmetic solution for males and females suffering from hair loss and thinning hair. It is used to create the illusion of real hair.
Using the most advanced precision machine and medical grade ink, small dots are placed into the dermal layer of the skin on your scalp (just beneath the surface).
This procedure can be used to create new hairlines, fill in thinning areas of stubble, cover areas of Alopecia, camouflage scaring from hair transplants and add density to thinning, longer hair.
If your hair loss or thinning hair makes you feel self conscious, then Scalp Micropigmentation will offer you instant, natural looking and truly life changing results.
Do you have Hair Transplant Scars?

Medical grade ink is used to replicate your natural hair follicles and give the illusion of real hair. It is a great solution for males and females that offers instant, natural looking and truly life changing results.
Frequently Asked Questions
Making the decision to have Scalp Micropigmentation done can be very difficult and you will undoubtedly have many unanswered questions. Below are some answers to the most frequently asked questions.
How does it work?
The pigment shade is matched to the colour of your natural stubble or hair. Over 3 – 4 sessions, layers are built up with the pigment to create the coverage and density that you desire. You will need to wait at least 2 weeks between each session.
How long will my Results last for?
The pigment will last for 3 – 5 years. This will vary from person to person and depends on various personal and environmental factors. It is recommended that you have a top-up done every 12 – 18 months to help keep its intensity.
What Pigments do you use?
Medical grade pigments which contain only natural ingredients are used. The pigment does not contain any heavy metals like tattoo inks; therefore it will never change its colour and will only fade gradually lighter over time.
What Colours are your Pigments?
There are 10 shades of pigment, ranging from Light Grey to Black. For the best results, clients’ hair colour must be Light Grey to Black, or Dark Brown.
