As this is micropigmentation and not traditional tattoo ink, we can modify your look or refresh your result as and when needed. It is designed to fade out eventually so if you decide you do not want to keep the scalp micropigmentation, you can simply let it fade away within 2-3 years.
Scalp Micropigmentation FAQ
The time taken usually depends on the degree of hair loss. Typically a treatment will take around 2-4 hours per session.
Does SMP look natural?
Unlike hair loss surgery, we simply implant pigments in to the scalp, the results of the treatment gives a natural appearance of small hair follicles whilst strengthening and adding density to thinning areas.
How will the treatment change my appearance?
It will almost certainly reduce your age appearance by 5-10 years and give you some serious confidence!
How long will the treatment last?
It is designed to fade out eventually so if you decide you do not want to keep the scalp micropigmentation, you can simply let it fade away within 2-3 years.
Do I have to shave for SMP treatment?
Yes, around 24 hours before your appointment for short hair showing noticeable signs of male pattern baldness, you will need to make the decision to shave your head. When we do hair densification for longer hair we can tattoo in among the existing hair as we work to give a fuller, thicker appearance for both male and female.
How do you create a hairline that suits me?
We measure and draw the hairline based on your requirements, age and style and you will be asked to review and approve the design before we start. Between us we can create the perfect hairline that brings back confidence.
Is the treatment painful?
As with any treatment the level of pain varies from person to person. You may find it mildly uncomfortable as we are implanting pigments in to the scalp.
Will it work with Grey hair?
Yes, we select the most suitable colour by testing different pigments against your skin tone, eye colour, taking all relevant factors into consideration.
Can it work on long hair?
Definitely, scalp micropigmentation can be used to add density to thin hair on the scalp if you have longer hair.
Will it work if I have had a hair transplant?
The answer here is yes. If you have had a hair transplant, we can not only cover any scars, but also gives the appearance of a fuller head of hair by adding density to existing hair, or you may prefer the look of the closely shaven head, this can literally take years off your appearance.
Please only wash with water after 3 days and after 7 days you can use gentle facewash or cleanser on your scalp.
For up to 30 days do not use any kind of exfoliating products, and neither should your scalp be exposed to prolonged UV rays.
After 30 days, you can resume your normal lifestyle, and enjoy your new look.
Get in to the habit of wearing an SPF30-50 on your head all year round as this will help protect your pigments from degradation, like with all PMU type treatments.
