Everything You Need To Know

Scalp Micropigmentation ( SMP ) is cosmetic tattooing (hair tattooing) that offers a solution to hair loss by replicating hair follicles that are about to grow giving the impression of a shaved look. SMP can treat anywhere on the scalp that is losing hair or even complete baldness of the scalp.

The honest answer is more of a discomfort rather than pain as with a normal tattoo procedure. We advise clients to have eaten well and be in good health on the day of treatment. Our pre-treatment advice also includes moisturising the scalp twice daily in the days/weeks leading up to your procedure. This will help soften the skin and make it less discomforting.
First session lasts from 2 to 5 hours, Second session lasts between 2 to 5 hours and Third session is between 2 to 4 hours. All quotes are for 3 visits. First to second visit a 10-day gap and third visit is a 4-week gap.
The hair line design is entirely up to you, whether you want a nice natural, receding, sharp defined or a bit of both sharp defined and natural the choice is yours. We draw the hairline on first until your happy with the design, this can take quite a while there is no rush and we want to make sure we get it right and that you are fully satisfied.
4 days after each treatment you can not train, no sweating whatsoever, this is essential otherwise the treatment will not work. After 4 days you can train but only light training, you cannot sweat excessively for 10 days.
We can work it around your work or social life no problem, weekends late nights early mornings that is not an issue.
No, you pay a £100 deposit (Non-refundable) which goes towards your treatment plan to secure your booking and then we split the payments up in 3 parts.
