Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is the world’s fastest growing solution for male and female hair loss. Unlike hairloss 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. Using advanced shading techniques, contrasted with your own natural colour, giving the illusion of a shadow and the appearance of three-dimensional, natural hair. We use slightly different methods for both male and female clients but ultimately we can replace lost density, resulting in the appearance of an even, full head of hair.
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.
Please avoid touching the area and do not wash your scalp for at least three days after your treatment, and if you can avoid sweating, do. This means no gym, no sports, and, if the weather is hot, try to stay indoors in a cool room as much as you can.
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.
SMP for Women
The thinning of hair can be distressing so we can create the appearance of a natural, full head of hair which is the ideal treatment for women. You may need colour adding to your scalp to cover natural separations made from long hair. If you can see scalp, we cover this up to allow for it to look healthy and full. Scalp Micropigmentation is perfect if you are a woman who is thinning on the top or across the crown section of your head. Regain your confidence with us.
SMP for Men
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.
We can create a widow’s peak or a soft hairline, we discuss your options and create your customised plan in your consultation. Prepare to feel more youthful and feel amazing!
