Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a modern, permanent, and life-changing treatment that precisely applies pigments to the scalp to replicate real hair follicles. This process is currently the best solution for male and female hair loss.

Many believe scalp micropigmentation is only for men, but it’s common for women to benefit, and many of our clients are women dealing with hair loss. One of the most common causes of this hair loss is alopecia, however various hormonal imbalances are often responsible too. Childbirth, medication, menopause and stress can all cause thinning hair. When it becomes noticeable, this loss of hair can be very distressing. We understand and empathize with the emotional pain that hair loss can cause. The procedure is quick, with little to no discomfort, no surgery, no downtime, and no scarring.


Pre-Care Tips:

  • Do not wear any hair pieces the week before.
  • No caffeine (coffee, Coke, sports drinks, etc.)
  • Do not tan and avoid direct sunlight to avoid burning and peeling of the skin.
  • Exfoliate and moisturize the scalp two times a day for at least a week before your treatment.
  • No aspirin, blood thinners, drugs, or alcohol for 48 hrs prior to treatment. Please drink water and eat well.
  • Cannot treat if scalp has been exposed to direct sun, is sunburned or if individual has used tanning beds.
  • Stop taking blood thinners, caffein and prelockout drinks 48 hours prior to your procedure.
  • Start applying a moisturizer cream, such as Cocoa Butter or Nivea After-Sun moisturizer to your scalp EVERY NIGHT 1 week before procedure and wash it out in the morning. Repeat this process every night until the day of your procedure.
  • Stop using any medications such as Minoxidil, Rogaine, Finasteride, Propecia until you’re done with your treatment.
  • Make sure you drink plenty of water the week before your procedure to ensure you skin is in the best possible condition.
  • Buzz your hair on the day before your procedure, do NOT shave your scalp with a razor or foil machine. The suggested length is a #00 length with a T-Liner buzzer (unless discussed otherwise with your SMP artist.
  • We also recommend having a meal before your session and bringing along a snack and beverage.
  • Wash your scalp (with scent-free shampoo) and be sure to remove any hair thickening products or fibers as well.
  • Refrain from putting any product in the hair or on the scalp after it is clean (thickening sprays, gels, moisturizers, hairspray, etc.). A light, scent-free moisturizer can be used if the scalp is still dry (even when following the pre-care directions above).
  • Keeping your hair long? (Male & Female Hair Density Procedure) – Cut to desired length.
  • Exfoliate then moisturize your scalp before you go to bed (light exfoliation to remove any dead skin).
  • On the morning of your procedure, make sure to wash your scalp really well to remove any residue left over from the moisturizer.
  • If you currently use any hair concealers, hair fibers, hair spray, minoxidil, chemicals etc. DO NOT apply anything on the day of your treatment.
  • Do not consume alcohol or drugs before the treatment, with the exception of medication prescribed by your doctor. If you need Pain Management, Tylenol is the only approved medication.
  • Drink and eat something prior to your arrival.
