What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp Micropigmentation also referred to as SMP, is a semi-permanent makeup technique developed to solve problems attached to hair loss. It is an updated cosmetic procedure that involves using specialized tools, including machines, needles and pigments, to create an illusion of the hair follicle. It is less invasive in solving hair loss problem than a hair transplant.
Scalp micropigmentation is a delicate cosmetic procedure that shouldn’t be done by someone who isn’t certified. However, in our hands, you have a guarantee of getting the best result. It takes the expertise of a professional to understand how to combine pigment colours that will suit the skin tone perfectly. In addition, it requires artistic skills, including handling and drawing fine shapes on the skin.
We handle our customers using in a gentle manner, making you as comfortable as possible. Scalp micropigmentation can be a little painful because it involves using needles. That’s why we use a numbing cream to reduce the pain during the procedure to a minimum.

How Is Scalp Micropigmentation Performed?
This treatment involves depositing microdot tattoos in the different layers of the skin. This stippling pattern gives the effect of hair follicles. It looks like you have cut your hair close to the scalp.
The artist chooses colours that closely match your natural skin tone and hair colour. That’s why you need a professional artist with enough experience to perform the procedure for you with zero complications.
How Do You Prepare for the Procedure? In general, you may shave or pluck your hair within 48 hours of having the treatment. Some procedures don’t require any shaving or plucking.
It’s important to eat a meal before your procedure begins.
