What Is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)

SMP is a relatively new, non-medical, non-surgical, hair-loss treatment. We create density by replicating thousands of hair follicles. Micro-dots are tattooed just below the skin on your scalp so that you have the appearance of a full head of hair.

SMP is a non-invasive alternative to balding and other hair problems.

WHAT WE DO​

If you want to improve the appearance of your hair line, reclaim a receded area, fill a hair parting that gives you an ‘aged’ look, or tackle full hereditary baldness, we can help. We work with all types of men and women who have lost scalp hair (and for men, facial hair).

Losing your hair is a personal and often devastating experience. We will provide you with personalized care starting from your first consultation, through each treatment, up to and including aftercare.

We will explain to you the various options available and make sure you know exactly what is involved. Sadly not everyone is an ideal candidate for SMP but rest assured we will let you know what can be done for you. At this time we can answer all of your questions and ensure you are fully briefed and happy to go ahead. We may do a demonstration for you by drawing a suitable hairline for example, and then talk with you about the procedures and the cost of each required session.

You will see immediate results from each of these advanced procedures and as the treatment progresses marvel at how it improves your overall appearance.

We help with:

  • Full or partial baldness
  • Irregular hairlines
  • Scar camouflage and blending
  • Surgery scars
  • Linear scars (FUT)
  • Extraction scars (FUE)
  • Accident scars (Misadventure and Sports)
  • Alopecia (the various types)
  • Male thinning of longer hair
  • Female hair thinning
  • Post Laser treatment

Treatment

Treatment starts with a free consultation (30mins to 1hr) to determine expectations, discuss options and outline what is best suited to your requirements.

Treatment involves preparing your scalp and designing your individual hairline.

Our specialised one-use micro-needle assembly is used to deposit carefully selected pigment in the upper dermal layer of the skin.

Post care instructions are explained, and given in printed form.

Your next treatment is scheduled for ten to twenty-one days later at your convenience.

SMP is known as semi-permanent in Australia, and as such can last between three to eight years, depending on the lifestyle and skin of the individual. Pigment can actually be retained in the skin for 20+yrs.

The treatment is typically used for:

  • Covering scars
  • Creating the look of a closely shaved head to cover partial or total baldness
  • Creating the illusion of density in women who experience thinning hair or hair loss
  • Adjusting natural hairlines

FAQ

Scalp micropigmentation is a socially acceptable tattoo based cosmetic treatment that simulates hair stubble and hair density.

SMP helps female and male patients who suffer from various forms of hair loss, scarring or have experienced failed surgical restoration procedures. Those who have had to resort to hair systems or even the desperation of hats worn at all times, are often ecstatic with their new look and consequent lifestyles changes.

All treatments are priced individually, based on your requirements as well as other factors linked to the type of condition you have. Scar tissue for example, can be ultra-absorbent whereas other tissue may take time to accept pigment.

Costing is from $800 and negotiated depending on how much micropigmentation is needed.

Three sessions are normally required to build and layer the pigment and show a soft and natural hairline. These sessions are usually between 2-3 hours each. Your comfort and our best performance determine the session lengths. Some clients opt to have their third session a few months after the second.

Your skin typically needs 5-7 days between treatments to heal. This allows for any swelling to disappear and for the pigmentation to cure. Usually all healing is completed within two weeks.

Your skin typically needs 5-7 days between treatments to heal. This allows for any swelling to disappear and for the pigmentation to cure. Usually all healing is completed within two weeks.

This depends on the availability. Most treatments happen no later than 2 weeks after the consultation. We do our best to work within your schedules.

We recommend a pretreatment of daily cleansing and exfoliating the skin for 1 week to 1 month prior to the treatment.

If you want to have a close shaved style of SMP, you may shave right down before your appointment but not on the day of treatment. It is not essential to shave if you are requiring a hair-density technique.

We use the finest topical anesthetic. Most people find the procedure relaxing, some even fall asleep. Every patient is different, some experience more sensitivity near the forehead (sinus) area. On the scale of 1 to 10 most people experience 3-4.

You will experience redness 2-10 hours after the treatment but variations depend on your skin type. Bear in mind the color will initially appear darker than the final result, which will show itself after 5 to 10 days.

Be patient. The skin will shed the top layer naturally so you will see the lighter SMP under the skin. You will be given after-care instructions to follow.

Our pigments are specially prepared not to change color on your head. We provide post care protocols and you need to protect your scalp with a high SPF sunscreen product. Sun exposure and time can lighten your pigment.

SMP is safe to existing hair as pigment is administered in the uppermost dermal area. Your hair follicles reside deeper in the scalp.
