WHAT IS Scalp Micropigmentation

Everything you need to know about scalp micropigmentation (smp)

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is actually a form of cosmetic tattooing. A safe, effective and non-surgical solution to hair loss, the ultra-realistic scalp micropigmentation ink replicates hair follicles that are ready to grow, giving the look of a freshly shaved head. This method can be used across the entire scalp, areas of hair loss, balding areas (male pattern baldness) or bald patches, scars and even hairlines. SMP is also a great way to make your hair look thicker if areas of the hair have grown thin. SMP can be used for both short hair and long hair.

What are the benefits of Scalp micropigmentation

There are many benefits of SMP! It’s a great way to create the appearance of hair in a very subtle, natural way. The Creative Scalps team is made up of highly trained technicians who use specialist machines, inks and techniques for an undetectable finish. There’s no need to worry about damaging existing hair, as our needles only go as far as the upper dermis of the skin.

It’s also a low maintenance treatment with long-lasting results. Your technician will provide you with some aftercare advice and once you’ve followed that for a few days, you can carry on with life as normal. Your results will then last for years, making it a cost-effective, hassle-free treatment.

Who should get Scalp Micropigmentaion / is SMP for you?

SMP will work for anyone with hair loss concerns, such as alopecia, thinning hair, pattern baldness, hair line repair and more. It creates the appearance of hair follicles or a subtle stubble, so is the perfect solution if you want to replicate the look of a freshly shaved head.

How long until I start to see the results after SMP?

Unlike hair transplant treatments, the results of scalp micropigmentation are instant. You will have some soreness and redness following the treatment, but depending on your skin type, this should reduce within 1-2 days. The treated area needs to dry heal for 4 days afterwards so you’ll need to avoid getting it wet, be that from water, lotions, sweat, etc. You’ll be provided with full aftercare to ensure that you get the very best finish from your treatment, with results that last for years to come.

Scalp micropigmentation gives the look of a shaven head or a stubble shadow look, the treatment at Creative Scalps will be undetectable, only you, the people you choose to tell and Creative Scalps will know.

This is dependent on amount of hair loss. As a general rule you will be looking at 3 or 4 sessions over a 6-8 week period. Each session can last 2-4 hours.

This is done according to skin tone and/or remaining hair colour. We have huge experience of a diverse range of clients from all cultures. 1st sessions usually start with a lighter shade and we gradually build up density and darkness as we progress to complete your treatment.

We can go through some pictures of hairlines and draw some hairlines on you. When choosing hairlines it is always best to play it safe, not going too low on the first visit. Then on the second visit you would have decided how low you want to go. We can also produce various hairline styles depending on what you like (ie jagged, soft, slightly receding, edged up, lines and designs) Creative Scalps have developed techniques and procedures to ensure your hairline will be in the correct place and suit you and your style. We are from a barbering background and have years of top level experience to ensure this is done correctly.

No. We use different pigments, inks, machines, needles and techniques. Scalp Micro Pigmentation is a specialist field of its own and requires a highly experienced technician to achieve great results.

No not at all, as the depth of the needle is only into the upper dermis, if anything the treatment has been known to stimulate hair growth.

Results of completed treatments will last for years, depending on lifestyle and immune system. Many clients like to have a top-up session after 2 or 3 years just to keep their new style looking fresh.

Touch up prices vary according to what is needed. Price for an existing client is usually £300 and for SMP repair prices start at £600.

For best results you would need the treatment to dry heal for 4 days after each treatment. So this would mean avoiding sweat, water and any sorts of creams, lotions etc….
After this period you can slowly increase activity.

Everyone is different depending on skin types. Immediately after treatment our technician will clean your treatment and use an anti-redness topical anaesthetic so you will leave the clinic looking and feeling great. The redness may possibly be with you for a day or two typically.

The treatment is perfectly safe, we use sterile equipment and brand new packaged needles for every procedure. We take health & safety very seriously and are fully insured and regulated.

No, as we only use a carbon based black pigment which is diluted to match your skin tone.

Yes, direction of hair growth is always taken into consideration for the most realistic results.

The honest answer is yes you are going to feel discomfort as with any 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. The elation you will feel after solving your hairloss issues will far outweigh any discomfort from treatment. 

We can work it around your work or social life no problem, weekends late nights early mornings are all ok. Creative Scalps has one of the worlds most skilled and experienced technicians so we do sometimes have waiting lists of 4-6 weeks.
