We are Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) specialists. We offer treatments for Male Pattern Baldness, Female Hairloss, Thinning of the hair, and hairline repair. Scalp Micropigmentation is the process of implanting tiny randomised dots into the skin on the scalp to simulate the appearance of hair follicles. It is ideal for women who have a loss of hair density and can make thinning hair much less noticeable. On men, it is used to simulate a 'shaved' head rather than bald head, leading to a much more youthful look, or it can be used to give the appearance of more density to hair growth too, depending on the severity of hair loss. A hair tattoo or scalp micropigmentation is a non-surgical, superficial cosmetic tattoo that gives the illusion of a close buzz cut hairstyle on a bald head or density to a thinning crown. Scalp Micropigmentation is the revolutionary procedure of creating a realistic, undetectable hairline tattoo. The procedure can also be used to conceal scars from hair transplantation and hide the visual impact of burns or scars on the head. Scalp micropigmentation can be performed on all ethnicities.
