What is Micro Pigment?

Scalp micropigmentation, also called micro pigment or scalp tattoo, is a hair loss treatment that mimics hair follicles by applying tattoo ink to the scalp.. This non-invasive treatment is ideal for men and women experiencing pattern baldness or thinning hair.

The technique mimics the colour of actual hair while giving the impression that there is more hair on the head. Individuals can arrange a free consultation with a specialist before the treatment to determine which option is best for them

SMP therapy has a notable advantage of offering a permanent solution to hair loss, unlike hair transplantation which can be costlier and may require additional treatments. The results of SMP are enduring and only semi-permanent, providing long-lasting benefits.

Hair tattoos are an excellent choice for people who have scars from earlier hair transplant procedures since they can help cover and conceal them. Although though getting a tattoo is very safe, very infrequently someone may develop an allergy to the ink.

It is also important to maintain a buzz cut hairstyle to ensure the most natural appearance of the scalp micro pigment, as it is designed to mimic a closely-shaven scalp.

How does micro pigment work?

Natural pigments are injected beneath the skin’s surface during a hair tattoo procedure using an electric tattooing machine and a tiny needle. Little spots that resemble hair follicles are produced as a result, and different pigment shades are employed for a natural appearance.

Who can get micro pigment

People who experience localized hair loss, thinning hair, or male or female pattern baldness benefit from micro-pigment. The micro pigment procedure can hide troublesome spots in your beard and eyebrows and cover baldness.

Additionally, this method might be an excellent way to hide scars from hair transplant surgery. Micro pigmentation can cover over scars on the scalp, beard, or brows to hide their undesirable appearance. 

Advantages of micro pigment

SMP may be a successful treatment for hair thinning. Although it doesn’t stop hair loss or encourage hair growth, it might make your head’s hair appear fuller. SMP, as opposed to a hair transplant, is a dependable and quick recovery method that enables you to return to your normal activities right away.

The result of SMP treatment will precisely match your selected hairline style, providing a predictable outcome. Additionally, SMP is a non-invasive, secure, and low-maintenance procedure that produces natural-looking and realistic results at a reasonable cost.

Q & A

scalp tattoo is just as permanent as any other tattoo. However, you may require a touch-up after 3-6 years because the pigments may fade. A 1-2 hour future touchup is all it takes to make your SMP look new again.

Hair tattooing is less painful than traditional tattooing, but some discomfort is still possible. To reduce pain, SMP practitioners may use numbing gel. The number of treatments required for SMP depends on the size of the scalp area being treated, with each treatment lasting 1-3 hours. Most clients require 3-4 sessions.

Cost of a hair tattoo depends on the amount of scalp being tattooed. A reputable SMP clinic should inform you of the price during the initial consultation, including the number of required treatments to achieve desired results.

SMP aims to make your scalp look hairless by creating the illusion of hair follicles using colour. However, it does not prevent hair loss or balding. If you want to prevent hair loss, hair loss therapy programs or medications might be more suitable options. Our clinic also offers Trichology hair loss services.


Micro-pigmentation is a cosmetic procedure involving the application of pigments to simulate hair or makeup. Scalp micropigmentation (SMP), which treats hair loss by stimulating hair follicles on the scalp, is one of the most prevalent forms of micro pigmentation. SMP is a non-surgical, cost-effective alternative to hair transplant surgery that produces long-lasting, low-maintenance results. Micropigmentation can also be used for other cosmetic purposes, such as augmenting eyebrows, simulating eyeliner or lip liner, and concealing scars or stretch marks. In addition, micro-pigmentation can be a safe and effective method for enhancing the appearance of individuals using specialized apparatus and practitioners with extensive training.
