What Is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)

SMP is a non-surgical solution to hair loss and thinning hair. Pigment is used to create the appearance of hair follicles on the scalp by strategically placing a blend of pigments on the scalp. Tiny layers of dots are carefully placed on the scalp to replicate the hair shadow by looking like natural hair follicles. It is suitable for men and women

The pigments used are the best in the industry and are made from natural ingredients, including carbon. They are natural and organic. As the procedure is non-invasive minimal recovery time is needed after the procedure and results are seen immediately. 

Who is suitable for Scalp Micropigmentation?

This is suitable for men and women experiencing hair loss due to cancer, alopecia, thinning hair or male and female pattern baldness.

It is ideal for anyone who wants:

Full coverage or would like the short hair shaved look

Add density to existing hair to give the appearance of fuller, thicker hair for men and women

Scar camouflage on the scalp (caused by burns, injuries, alopecia, or even previous FUT/FUE hair transplant scars)

Add density after hair transplant to give more density to the transplanted area

Low maintenance solution for hair loss with minimum downtime and immediate results.

Here at Best Health Hair we work with the industry leaders and have links with award winning SMP practitioners.

  • How many sessions do I need?
    Scalp Micropigmentation normally takes more than one session for the best results. On average we would recommend 2-4 sessions depending on the extent of hair loss. There is normally a gap of 2-3 weeks between each session. This is so we can let the pigment settle and heal in-between and then layer it the next session to give a more realistic and natural look result.
  • How long is each session?
    The length of each session depends on the area to be treated and can last 2-4 hours. There is no down time after the procedure.
  • Can you have Scalp Micropigmentation after a hair transplant?
    This is commonly carried out after hair transplant to maximise the results seen. SMP can be used to add density to the transplanted area or cover any scarring caused by FUE and FUT. We would normally advise to wait 8-12 months after a hair transplant to allow maximum growth of your transplanted hair or the dinar area to heal.
  • Is suitable for women?
    Absolutely! A lot of women experience hair thinning where the scalp may become visible. We can carefully place the pigments in the exposed areas giving the appearance of fuller thicker hair.
  • Is the procedure painful?
    There will be some slight discomfort during the procedure, and we will be monitoring you to make sure you are feeling okay. We do no go past the second layer of the skin, therefore the pain is less that in traditional tattooing.
  • How long do the results last?
    After all the sessions have been completed the strength of the colour should last a few years ( 3-6 years) with proper care and use of a SPF 50 sunscreen Over time there may a lightening of the colour (not discolouration), and we can offer a touch-up session to counteract this.
  • How much does Micro Scalp Pigmentation treatment cost?
    The price of MSP treatment is determined by the extent of your hair loss. Although cost is significant, your primary concern when selecting a provider for your MSP treatment should be the quality of their work. There are different financing alternatives accessible to make the procedure more affordable and attainable.
  • Are consultations free?
    Yes, all Best Health Hair Clinic consultations are free of charge.
  • What can I expect when I attend a Best Health Hair consultation?
    At the consultation, your Best Health Hair specialist will assess the extent of your hair loss and engage in a conversation with you about your expectations. They will then inform you about the feasible outcomes of the treatment alternatives that are accessible to you.
  • What happens if the pigment starts to fade?
    Fading can occur within the first year, but it is very rare. However, we are so confident in the long-lasting quality of our outstanding work that we provide a 5-year guarantee to provide you with added assurance.
