Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)

So you’ve come across scalp micropigmentation and are trying to decide if it’s for you.

The term ‘hair tattoo’ sometimes refers to a barbershop request where designs are cut into the hair, however, in this context we are talking about the hair tattoo for bald men/women, a hugely popular hair loss cover-up that hundreds of thousands of men/women worldwide have now chosen.

The technical term for this type of treatment is Scalp Micropigmentation. Calling this a hair tattoo is a little misleading as the process is much more involved than a regular tattoo, and the technique is entirely different. This is not the kind of request you want to make at your local tattoo parlour.

Simply put, it is a process where thousands of tiny pigment deposits are placed into the upper dermis of the scalp. When completed by a skilled practitioner with specialist training, the result is a highly effective illusion of a full head of shaved hair.

Due to the nature of this procedure, it doesn’t matter how much hair the man has lost already. Unlike hair transplant surgery, hair tattooing is not reliant on a supply of donor's hair. This means men/women who have lost most of their real hair can still have a hair tattoo, even if they have experienced total hair loss through a condition like alopecia.
