What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Hair Tattoos Are a Unique Treatment Option to Combat Balding

Balding is an unfortunate fact of life for men and numerous women too. 66% of men experience varying degrees of balding before the age of 35. Some experience it in a lesser degree than others but almost anyone who suffers from balding wishes that they could reverse the effect. At Crown Clinic, we offer a range of hair loss treatments that can be tailored to your needs including the increasingly popular options of Scalp Micropigmentation as seen on numerous celebrities and models alike.

What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is the revolutionary procedure of a realistic, undetectable tattoo for the hairline and scalp area. Since balding not only affects men, this procedure is applicable to both men and women. SMP can restore receding hairlines, fix bald sports and offer the appearance of fuller, thicker hair – especially for those who already sport a buzz cut. SMP is a non-surgical procedure that uses a micro-needles to inject pigment into the scalp. Similar to a traditional tattoo, SMP tattoos tiny dots on your head, between your hair follicles. Because the natural pigment is applied at the epidermal level of the scalp, the hair tattoo gives the appearance of the natural look of real hair on a shaved head. The final result can fix a receding hairline, fill in areas of thinning hair, provide a thicker hairstyle, and cover scarring or skin diseases.

What is involved in Scalp Micropigmentation?

Using a micro-pigmenting technique, SMP recreates the look of short or shaved hairs by strategically placing pigments on to the scalp. This technique can be performed on both short or long hair and can help redefine your hairline, mask the signs of Alopecia Areata, camouflage scarring and old hair transplant scars. At Crown Clinic, we provide a gold standard treatment all performed in a cosmetic medical clinic of the highest standard.

What is a Crown Clinic Full Density Hair Transplant?

When combined with SMP, the Crown Clinic Full Density Hair Transplant will offer the texture of newly transplanted hair with the extra density of SMP. We create fine hair-like strokes or dots to achieve the look of hair on the scalp. By combining Hair Transplantation and SMP, we can achieve the texture of real hair, with virtually limitless density at your disposal, no matter how much donor hair you have available. Most people like the feel of having real hair on their scalps. When combining traditional hair restoration techniques and a highly advanced scalp micropigmentation process, you will benefit from the best of both worlds. Real hair with real texture, with the look of thickness and fullness that only scalp micropigmentation can provide.

What are the results of Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation is a semi-permanent technique using colour pigments applied to the skin. We create fine hair-like strokes to disguise the look of thinning hair on the scalp. A hypo-allergenic pigment is implanted into the skin and will generally last from 2 to 5 years. Results will vary depending on the client’s exposure to sun and resistance to pigment. Depending on the depth of colour requested, most people are comfortable in public within 2 to 5 days.

What areas can be treated with Micropigmentation?

  • Micropigmentation can create the visual effect of a full head of hair for men
  • Micropigmentation can disguise existing Hair Transplant Scars
  • Micropigmentation for density enhancement in women with thinning hair
  • Micropigmentation correction for Alopecia Areata patches
  • Density enhancement for low donor coverage after FUE –Follicular Unit Transplant
  • Brow pigmentation can enhance the density and shape of eyebrows

How long will the treatment last?

Treatments will last from 2 to 5 years, with retouches recommended when needed.  All initial treatments will need between 2 to 4 sessions to achieve your final result.
