We do sometimes offer cheaper prices for clients willing to let us document their journey on video and ask them about their journey on camera finishing with a video testimonial but we don’t advertise this all the time.
Please Note***These cheaper deals are only offered in exchange for full usage of your photos/videos for our website, social media & advertising campaigns! We can only accept clients who can speak clear English and don’t live far away, as in the case your head is red at your final sitting you will be asked to return to do your testimonial. Any clients who cannot or fail to do the testimonial will be due the full standard price and not the discounted price ***
We also offer cheaper prices for clients who have their initial sessions with some of our new technicians and a Scalp Doctor pro will finish off to perfect the look. ***this deal is only on set week days, you must be flexible with attending our training dates for your sessions with the trainees. finishing sessions with a scalp doctor pro can be arranged to suit yourself. If you are red on the final sitting, you will be requested to come back for photos as it is part of the deal.***
In order to keep you looking your best we would recommend a top up every 1-3 years though although it can last longer, the impressions won’t be as crisp and clear. Please be aware that this does vary amongst individuals. Some have top ups yearly where as others getaway with longer intervals.

A top up for an existing client is £350. A top up for a client who didn’t originally have the procedure with us will cost £450.
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 and I myself fell asleep whilst having it)! Thinner scalps and scar tissue may be factors that can increase discomfort though none of our clients have complained of anything more severe.
SMP gives the appearance of a full head of hair that has been shaven. Therefore, it will look very natural when done by us as we have won multiple awards for our natural work.
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.
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.
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!
Your quote will be based on 3 visits to the clinic. Alopecia totalis clients will usually take 4-5 sessions.
It is recommended that you allow 7-10 days before your second treatment and further 4 weeks before your final treatment.
