SMP is a non-surgical hair replica replacement using micro needles which inserts ink into the upper epidermis of the scalp. This gives the appearance of tiny hair follicles or short hair stubble. Great for thinning hair to add density or if completely bald giving you the buzz cut look. It can be used to disguise unwanted scars and alopecia.
Pricing is based on the individuals level of hair loss. As every client is different. I will provide a quotation after a consultation which can simply be done by submitting photos via text or email. Skype is another method, whichever method you prefer. Smp is maintenance free and is far less expensive than transplant surgery or maintaining a hair piece.
The pigment used is very stable once implanted into the scalp due to the absence of oils. This ensures will not require a reapplication for many years. With darker skinned clients, probably never. Everybody’s skin is different in its makeup so touch ups may be required every couple of years.
We copy your natural hair colour by blending pigments to seamlessly replicate each individual’s hair line working to the boundary of your existing hair with subtle blending.
Depending on the coverage required, the initial process can be from 1 to 8 hours. Most clients can expect 2 sessions to complete their look. The second session will take 1-4 hours depending on an individuals’ requirements. 2-4 follow up sessions maybe required; this is included in the price.
No, smp doesn’t stimulate hair growth it replicates hair follicle with the insertion of pigment.
SMP is noninvasive and requires no down time. After treatment it is common to notice slight redness which subsides quickly.
By placing pigments inside the scarring and blending around the scarring area, scars will be masked.
Hair only shows grey when it is longer. When the hair is cut short (buzz cut) doesn’t appear as grey as the hair root itself is darker. With the pigment we use you can have a subtle look that suits your personal taste. The SMP process allows complete flexibility.
Once again the hair follicle is a shade of grey, only the long hair from the side you see the colour. The pigment is graded down to the correct shade.
We mask the balding areas by creating micro hair follicle replications.
No, the only ongoing maintenance will be to have your naturally growing hair cropped short to complete the look. If you are outdoors a lot, we do recommend wearing a cap or 50 + sunblock as over time the pigment will fade not change colour.
No. this can be soft and staggered. You can choose a hair line dark or light.
The pigment used is completely safe as it is natural carbon and water based specifically formulated for SMP. We don’t use the same pigments used for body tattoos and permanent makeup. SMP ink can’t be used for deeper penetration into the skin as done with a body tattoo. Ink formulated for body tattooing and permanent makeup are formulated for deeper penetration.
The ink used for SMP doesn’t contain blue or green pigments. Iron oxides in regular tattoo inks cause discoloration.
Each client is different, but most say they have got used to the sensation after 20 minutes into the procedure. SMP penetrates the scalp with a micro needle that is 0.2mm in diameter at the insertion depth. There will be redness which subside with a couple of hours or overnight.
You may not be a candidate. A medical questionnaire and consent form is to be completed prior to your treatment to access if you will be suitable for SMP. These can be provided to you prior, just ask.
We give a 12-month warranty should you have any fading or unevenness. This is corrected complimentary within the 12 months of your SMP. Everybody’ skin is different and reacts differently.
We can work around your work or social life no problem, weekends late nights early mornings are all ok.
