What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is the world’s fastest-growing solution for male and female hair loss. Have you ever considered a wig or hair transplant, maybe a hairpiece to glue on your head, or maybe you have tried a different hair system? With Scalp Micropigmentation you can forget all of those. And enjoy a lifetime without worrying about your hair. When you receive a Scalp Micropigmentation treatment for your hair loss it’s a permanent solution. Scalp Micropigmentation is guaranteed to stay, leave’s no harsh scarring, has a minimal recovery time, is minimally invasive AND a fraction of the price.
What is scalp pigmentation?
Scalp micropigmentation is the process of putting tiny permanent impressions into the scalp using specialized pigments and needles. In a procedure done properly, each of these impressions will look like a hair follicle. Using this process we create the illusion of full follicular density–even in areas of hair loss. This allows us to effectively camouflage hair loss. Choosing a properly trained technician that has skill and experience is most important. At SkinCity, we can offer you just that.
How does it work?
Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) is a relatively painless yet permanent solution which works by adding pigmentation to the scalp to imitate a naturally shaved head. The process itself requires a highly skilled technician and cannot be correctly carried out by tattooists or cosmetic pigmentation specialists, as the equipment and technique used are different to cosmetic tattoos. Essentially SMP requires the technician to replicate the look of thousands of hair follicles as they would on a freshly shaved head. When done correctly, SMP looks extremely natural and realistic – even from up close.
What is the suitable scalp pigmentation treatment?
Micro pigmentation is an ingenious technique which is used to implant small amounts of pigment into the upper layer of the scalp in a dot or line pattern this creates an optical illusion of a full scalp even without hair restoration. This is a painless walk in- walk out procedure which takes a few hours and is performed without any anaesthesia. Skin City is one of the very few centres to launch scalp pigmentation treatment. In patients with significant hair loss being treated with Mesotherapy/ PRP or even hair transplantation, scalp micro pigmentation can be added at the completion of these procedures to give maximum scalp coverage look.
Does it have any side effects?
The vast majority of procedures performed on the body come with some level of risk. However, Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) does not have any serious side effects reported. As SMP is the process of restoring the look of hair to its natural density by applying ink to the scalp by professionals to create a natural look for patients, there are no known side effects of the procedure. The following are potential issues of which you should be aware.
- Allergies: Some people are allergic to ink when it is applied to their skin. It is possible to react to the colorants used during the procedure.
- Needle Safety: As is the case with any treatment that uses needles, the person performing your treatment should be using a clean, new needle for every patient.

Although factors such as location, cost, experience, and service are all important, the single most significant variable is the quality of work produced by Skin City. Before and after photos are often the best resources available to make that judgment, with the exception of meeting real clients face to face of course.
