SMP is a non invasive solution for the appearance of hair loss. The procedure is done by implanting thousands of micro impressions onto the scalp to replicate the look of hair follicles. This treatment benefits both men and women who are balding or have thinning hair.

Each session ranges from 2-4 hours, depending on the size of the area needing treatment. Regardless of size, everyone needs 2-4 sessions, depending on how well the scalp accepts the pigment. Several sessions are needed in order to properly layer impressions over previously healed impressions, to provide a realisting result.

With proper aftercare, SMP can last 3-8 years. Over time, you will notice slight fading, at which point, a touch up-would be recommended. Proper aftercare, includes, avoiding direct sunlight for long periods of time when possible to prevent fading, and wearing at least SPF 30 to keep your scalp and results looking healthy.

There is virtually no downtime involved. Redness subsides after 2-3 days, after each session. Most people return to work the same day or have no issues resuming their regular work and social schedules.

Yes! Regardless of hair color, everyone’s hair follicle is a shade of black. A trained SMP artist matches your personal follicle shade. Even if you go grey over time, your SMP will still look realistic and natural!

An SMP tattoo machine is used, along with SMP tattoo needles and pigment. All of which are specifically designed to be used for SMP treatments. The pigment used is carbon based organic pigment and safe for use. If pigment is a concern, a patch test can be done at your consultation. Clients report a pain level of 1-3 between 1-10.

You may get away with leaving your hair long, depending on the hair loss pattern that you currently have. SMP is meant to blend seamlessly into your existing hair (if any). If the hair loss is progressing in a patchy pattern, a full shave may be necessary for SMP to be of any benefit. For clients with a full head of hair who are thinning and looking to add density, the hair may be left long. Both options will be discussed during your consultation.

SMP can be used to camouflage scars on the scalp, including hair transplant scars. SMP is a great option to go along with scalp/hair surgery. SMP is also useful in adding density to thinning beards!

Pricing varies case by case and can be discussed after an evaluation during a consultation. In comparison to other hair loss solutions, including transplants, FUT’s, injections, and long term use of hair serums/medication, SMP is reasonably priced. Whereas hair loss surgeries and other solutions are upwards of $20,000+ and results are not guaranteed, SMP is less than a quarter of that amount and require less maintenance. Plus, since SMP is done in sessions with 10-14 days in between for healing, partial payments can be made at each session, to help spread out the cost over time! *deposit is required to book first session*
