Receding hairlines can be quite embarrassing and it happens to men at different stages in life . It is usually genetic and could really lower your self esteem. Looking for an ego boost? We have done some research on how to get your “hair back on”. Scalp micropigmentation might just be what you need.

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)

Scalp Micropigmentation creates an illusion of fuller hair. It does not help you grow your hair back, but it involves a process using tiny, layered dots in different hues of black to replicate the look of a shadow on your scalp. This style, referred to as pointillism, is done to create natural-looking depth and definition.

scalp micropigmentation is a three or four step process to inject custom ink into the scalp in a variety of ways. This replicates the “textured” look of a real shaved scalp, where some hair follicles stand out more than others. It passes the eye test from afar and when observed closely it’s hard to decipher from your real hair.

Does it Hurt?

Before the procedure, your SMP practitioner injects a numbing agent to your scalp. it’s good to keep in mind that there may still be some discomfort. However, how much discomfort largely depends on your pain tolerance.

Benefits of Scalp Micropigmentation

These are the reasons why you should consider Scalp pigmentation- now a fast growing remedy for hair loss:


Scalp micropigmentation costs a fraction of the price of hair transplants. As a permanent solution to hair loss it is more affordable than medication that needs to be taken constantly, it requires no expensive post-procedural medications or care products, and maintenance is minimal.


Scalp micropigmentation does not use any chemicals, meaning that there are no side effects to worry about. The treatment is non-invasive and no incisions are made, so there is little risk of infection. Scalp micropigmentation is not a painful procedure and topically applied local anesthetic is all that is needed to prevent discomfort.

Fast procedure

Scalp micropigmentation is a simple procedure – a hair tattoo – and can be finished in a couple of sessions. It takes just a few hours to achieve a perfect shaved-head look. Even after the first session, the results are good.

Fast healing

Scalp micropigmentation is a non-invasive procedure, meaning it heals in only a few days.

It does not require dressings or stitches, and in the weeks following the procedure, a simple aftercare plan will ensure the treated site heals properly.

Little maintenance

There is no need for expensive hair products or styling with scalp micropigmentation, because there is no real hair. Simply wash the pigmented area, and if desired, use a bit of hair wax to add shine.

Look younger

There is a common perception that balding men are old, lowering one’s confidence, especially

if still young. Scalp micropigmentation gives you back your hair and creates the shaved-head look worn by even the biggest movie stars, so you can finally look as young as you feel.

Looks realistic

The pigments are matched to individual’s existing hair color and skin tone, and are applied in the direction of the natural hair growth to achieve the most realistic look possible.

Long lasting

The results of the scalp micropigmentation procedure will last for years, boosting one’s confidence for a long time. The pigmentation fades subtly and gradually over many years and can be topped up or adjusted in later sessions,if required.

Hides imperfections

Scalp micropigmentation helps to mask a receding hairline, making hair appear fuller.

It can also be used to camouflage scars from past surgeries, injuries or from an old hair transplant.
