Scalp Micropigmentation is most commonly and most effectively used to create the appearance of a full head of shaven hair.


This treatment is ideal for those that are bald or have thinning hair.

The pigment is applied to the balding areas of the scalp, blending seamlessly with the existing hair follicles in order to create a soft, natural and ultimately realistic looking hairline.

This treatment can also treat thinning hair with series of tiny dots that are tattooed onto the scalp in between hairs.

Frequently asked questions

What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation is a hair follicle replication procedure which helps individuals who are experiencing hair loss, or who may have scarring on their heads that they wish to cover up. We use an unique application method to mimic hair follicles in the scalp. The procedure is a completely non-intrusive treatment and requires no surgery whatsoever. Our procedure boasts vastly lower costs and much lower risks compared to alternative hair replacement medications and practices.

How long will the treament take?

Depending on size of the treated area. Average treatments take roughly 3-4 hours for the first session, then around 2-3 hours for the second session. Some clients may request or require a third session to complete their treatment, and session time is around 1 – 2.5 hours, depending on the amount of work needing to be done.

Does it hurt?

Our 1pt HD needle can make the dot of a small pin. If you look closely at the impressions, it is impossible to tell the difference between the hair and the impressions. When we talk to our clients, they say they would rate the pain level at 2-5 out of 10. Both women and men who have scarring from hair transplants will often have a little more discomfort due to sensitivity of the area.

Will people be able to tell I have had this treatment done?

The look we provide is unbelievably realistic. Our procedure has the age-renewing aesthetics to make the hair of someone who is balding look younger and improve their overall appearance.

How will I look immediately after the procedure?.

Following the treatment, there is a redness for anywhere between 2-10 hours, depending on your skin type. The pigment’s initial color will appear darker than the “cured” result, but don’t worry, getting to your ideal color will only take up to 1-2 weeks.

What is the average time between sessions?

We always suggest to our clients to wait at least six days after their initial treatment to have a second session. This second procedure ensures optimal results while allowing for minor adjustments to the hairline and color after the product has had the necessary time to cure.

How long will my head take to fully heal after the procedure?

We provide specific post-care protocols that should be followed for the first week and thereafter. Your body’s own healing ability will determine when your scalp is fully healed. You will be a little red the day of the procedure, but you will almost certainly be able to live normally and even go to work the day after. For clients who are getting SMP after using a hair system, hair fibers, or topicals, expect 24-72 hours of redness due to sensitive skin.

How long do I have to wait after receiving my treatment before I can shave with a razor?

At the very least, one week. Your scalp is still in the healing process for at least one week after this treatment. We also recommend an electric foil shaver for the first few shaves after your treatment.
