Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is an innovative, non-surgical hair loss solution, performed at our Harley Street clinic in London.
SMP treatment improves the visual density for those with little to no hair, and can also create a thickening effect for longer hair by directly darkening the scalp and reducing the contrast ratio between your hair and scalp tone.
SMP stands for Scalp Micro Pigmentation (or Micro Scalp Pigmentation), which deposits medical grade pigment into the upper dermal layer of the skin.
At our SMP clinic in London, we use Alivio gamma-sterilised pigmentation ink, combined with a 3 micron precision needle to accurately simulate short, shaved follicles throughout your scalp.
Scalp Micro Pigmentation treatments are performed over 3-4 sessions at Harley Street Clinic, typically spaced 7-10 days apart to achieve the colour, tone, and density you are looking for.
Our highly experienced SMP treatment specialist in London will carefully measure and approve each design with you before any pigment is applied. For example, you may wish for a very low defined hairline, but we often advise starting with a softer natural look, taking into account your facial features and age appropriateness.
The key to achieving a natural-looking scalp micropigmentation result is to ensure that the pigment color matches the patient’s natural hair color and skin tone. The procedure should also be performed by a skilled and experienced SMP artist who can create a realistic hairline and mimic the natural growth pattern of hair.
Patients suffering with autoimmune conditions such as scarring alopecia, alopecia areata or trauma and burn scars can also benefit from SMP treatment. SMP can also complement the visual density of previous hair transplant surgery or disguise any unsightly scarring you may have.
The results of scalp micropigmentation can be long-lasting, although the pigment may fade over time and may require a touch-up session eventually depending on how much it fades.
