Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-invasive treatment that uses detailed micro-needles to deposit pigment into the scalp. The result creates the appearance of tiny hair follicles that help thicken and restore the look of fuller hair. If you are starting to thin, recede, it can re create a thicker looking hair line.

When administered by a trained and licensed specialist, the Scalp Micropigmentation treatment can restore receded hairlines, thicken remaining hair, camouflage transplant scarring, and create the look of close-cropped hair.

Scalp Micropigmentation is also effective for those suffering from minor hair thinning or recession.

By accurately replicating your own natural hair follicles and hair color, scalp micropigmentation can help strengthen and add density to thinning areas, creating an undetectable illusion of thicker, stronger hair.

To create the appearance of thicker hair , our SMP specialist uses cosmetic pigmentation and state-of-the-art equipment to create your desired hairline, add density to thinning areas, and blend into your existing hair for a seamless look.
