What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a life changing, game changing and transformative solution to hair loss! It is a unisex cosmetic procedure that involves tattooing the scalp to create the illusion of new hair follicles. Pigment is deposited below the epidermis layer using a stippling or dotting method.

Scalp micropigmentation offers a non-surgical and non-invasive solution for individuals seeking to address hair loss, create the look of a shaved head, or enhance their existing hairstyle. It provides a natural looking alternative to hair transplants or other hair restoration methods, and can significantly boost self-confidence and self-esteem!
