Will it hurt?

Pain is subjective so there’s no simple answer. Some clients report a discomfort in particular areas while others can doze off (this has happened)! Thinner scalps and scar tissue may be factors that can increase discomfort though none of our clients have complained of anything more severe.

How real will it look?

SMP gives the appearance of a full head of hair that has been shaven. Therefore, it will look very natural.

How do I choose a hairline?

There are several different hairlines that we can do. Every individual is different so it is essential that the hairline is in keeping with the overall look and age. We will demonstrate what is available and advise accordingly. It is only when you are completely happy that we will move forward.

Is it the same as a normal tattoo?

SMP is very different to a normal tattoo. We undertake specialist training to do this procedure. We use specific pigments that retain their colour over time (though they may fade). Specialist medical grade machines designed for the sole purpose of SMP. Furthermore, the SMP procedure does not penetrate the skin as deeply as a normal tattoo. 

Can I use the gym after my procedure?

The simple answer to this is, NO! In order to get the most out of your procedure, it is important that you do not sweat for the first four days following your treatment. Therefore, we advise that you avoid swimming, use of a sauna and simply getting your head wet! After this period you’re fine to head back to the gym but please take it easy. We don’t recommend any excess sweating for 10 days after treatment. Get some extra training in beforehand!

How many visits to the clinic are required?

Your quote will be based on 3 visits to the clinic. Alopecia totalis clients will usually take 4-5 sessions.

How long between treatments?

it is recommended that you allow 7-10 days before your second treatment and further 4 weeks before your final treatment.
