What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-surgical solution for hair loss that requires little to no maintenance. This innovative treatment creates a permanent shaved and buzzed look that is completely natural looking.


Also known as SMP, it’s similar to a tattoo, except that the needles, machine, and pigment are specifically designed for Scalp Micropigmentation hair loss treatment. While traditional tattoos are placed five layers or more into the skin, SMP is placed only two layers into the skin. This allows the pigment to hold its follicle-like shape and provide clients with a natural buzzed appearance.

How is Scalp Micropigmentation Treatment Different From Other Hair Fillers?

While both SMP and traditional hair filler treatments provide hair loss solutions, SMP offers many advantages. SMP is generally more affordable than traditional hair fillers and is a permanent solution to hair loss. It also tends to have less risk associated with it.

Additionally, SMP provides more immediate results than many hair filler products. While hair fillers involve serums or injections that contain growth factors for enhancing hair growth and blood circulation at the root level, it can take time for new hair to grow (if it even does grow back). Since SMP applies tiny dots to mimic the appearance of hair follicles, the results can be noticed in as little as one week once the skin heals.

Is SMP a Scalp Tattoo?

SMP is similar to a traditional tattoo, however, the needles, machine, and pigmentation used for treatment are different. Additionally, SMP treatment goes two layers deep into your skin, whereas a tattoo goes five layers deep or more.


How Long Will Scalp Micropigmentation Last?

Most clients who receive Scalp Micropigmentation treatment can expect their results to last for 4 to 6 years. It’s normal for the pigmentation to fade within this time period and as a result, some people decide to receive touch-ups. These touch-ups can be performed by our team once every 2 to 4 years.
