Thicker Fuller Hair
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) makes hair look thicker and fuller. It’s a treatment that disguises thinning, receding or patchy hair. It can help restore your confidence and give the look of a full head of hair where your scalp can be seen through hair. SMP is virtually maintenance free, has long-lasting results and is safe.

How does it work?
SMP is not a cure. This treatment adds tiny dots of pigment to the upper most skin layer of the scalp. It camouflages the areas with less hair. The pigment is added in a similar way as a tattoo but is not anywhere near as painful.
The treatment involves replicating hair follicles with different shades to cover areas where there are gaps in the hair. It’s a procedure similar to microblading for enhanced eyebrows.
Common Hairloss Expressions
This type of hairline comes in a V-shape. It can be quite distinctive for some people. There are also famous celebrities with widow’s peak like Marilyn Monroe and Brooke Shields.
SMP treatment can disguise a receding widow’s peak and return the shape to a more natural hairline.
Hair thinning refers to the early stages of hair loss. The hair strand starts to lose its usual thickness. Over time your scalp can be seen through the hair. To negate this look, a perfect shade of pigment can be selected to match the depth of hair.
Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPH)
FPH is a distinctive form of hair loss that women experience. You’ll see a small vertical cut at the top of the head during the first stages of FPH. Then the vertical cut gets wider through time, and the baldness starts to become more visible.
FPH by the age of 50 affects about 50% of men and 25% of women. SMP treatment helps camouflage the exposed areas of the scalp.
