The Treatment - Scalp Micropigmentation

What is SMP?

We recreate the look of hair follicles by strategically placing our specialist pigments into the dermal layer of skin.

When remaining hair is shaved down, our pigments, when planted in appropriate positions, are undetectable and blend in with existing hair to create  a ‘shaved’ or ‘buzzed’ look that disguise hair loss in balding areas. These coloured pigments are matched to the customers existing hair enabling a realistic finished look. The untrained eye will struggle to tell the difference between our replicated follicles and actual hair growth.

Balding and receding hairlines can be very ageing which can be especially problematic if occurring in younger years. The greatest feedback of all is when clients remark on the anti-ageing benefits of this procedure and have improved confidence and self-esteem.

Put your faith in us. You won’t be disappointed.

All of our work comes with a one year guarantee. Should you experience fade within that time we will do a top up free of charge, although that hasn’t been necessary in any cases yet.

How long will it last?

This is a tough one as every person is different… Different factors come into it.

For instance, if you are out in the sun a lot or are an avid sunbed user then it may fade quicker due to the suns rays if you dont wear high factor sunscreen on your head.

Certain peoples immune systems also may have an effect on the tattoo.

Also certain medications, All may have adverse effects on the longevity of your tattoo. But generally you would expect to have a Top-Up every 3-5 years to keep your scalp looking fresh!

All  of our work comes with a one year guarantee. So should you experience fade  within that time and need a top up then we will do this free of charge. Although that  hasn’t been necessary in any cases yet.

how we can help

Balding Of The Crown

While balding of the crown for men can be quite traumatic, if it is not too far gone we can add density to give it a fuller look. However if it is quite prominent then we would suggest shaving the hair right down and we can fill in the balding are to match the remaining hair. This is by far the better way to go. as the bald spot may get bigger naturally over time, you may have to pop back for a top up to fill in any new areas of thinning as you would expect.

Receding Hairline

Receding hairlines, again like the balding crown can be traumatic for a man who has always loved having that amazing hair. However the days of worrying about this are long gone. When you come to visit us we will discuss different hairlines to see which one you think suits you the most. A lot of clients like to recreate a hairline that they had many years ago while others prefer to keep a slightly receding to look more natural.

Thinning Hair

Thinning hair can be caused by a number of things but mainly by stress or pattern balding. By replicating follicles in amongst the area that is thinning we can add density to the hair over 3 sessions and make the hair look fuller than before. 

FUT & Scar Camouflage

Head scars can be a thing of the past as we can now use our specialist SMP technique to help disguise old hair transplant scars and other types of scarring to the head. Over 2-3 visits we will make it about 70-80% less noticeable and blend it into the surrounding hair.


From very mild alopecia to traction alopecia, alopecia areata or even alopecia totalis (total balding). We can offer something to help get you your confidence back.From adding density to thinning areas to adding the look of stubble to a hairless head, get in touch with us to see what we can do for you!

Top Ups

If  you have previously had Scalp Micropigmentation either with us or  with another provider and are now requiring a top up we can accommodate  for this too. 

We charge £200 per hour for top ups. 

Combining Your Hair Transplant With SMP

Not all hair transplants will give the desired effect of a thick head of hair. hence why a lot of people come to us to ask if we can help. If you are planning to have a hair transplant then we would recommend that you have SMP procedure done approximately 5 months prior to your hair transplant so that it will have time to settle in. This will give you the extra density for while your hair transplant is taking hold and will give a fuller look when grown to the style you want. 

If you have had a hair transplant already, then we recommend waiting 12 months before having an SMP procedure. This is due to the tranplanted follicles needing 12 months to mature and be stable in the scalp.
