What is SMP?

Scalp Micropigmentation (or a “hair tattoo”) is a non-surgical hair loss solution where impressions are strategically placed to supplement your existing hair follicles. Whether you would like the appearance of a full head of shaved hair or to combat a thinning scalp, SMP is the solution you have been looking for.

Who is it for?

Around 25% of men who have hereditary baldness start losing hair before the age of 21, and by 35 around 66% of men will have experienced some degree of hair-loss. For many, balding is a process that we don't like, and can't control.

SMP is for people who are lacking confidence due to hair-loss. As mentioned before it is a non-surgical solution to conditions such as alopecia, thinning hair, pattern baldness or receding hairlines.

While not only boosting confidence, it is also a great way to cover scar tissue or imperfections because of other treatments.

If you are fed up of your scalp dictating your future, mood and self confidence then SMP may be for you.

The Benefits

  • Minimal maintenance
    After all your sessions are complete you will have little maintenance to look after your new appearance apart from top sessions. It can last for years before fading.
  • Affordable
    SMP is significantly less expensive than surgical solutions, and the benefits are also that once it is complete, it is complete.
  • Boost in confidence
    Create the appearance you desire with help from the artist through planning in consultations. No scalp is the same, but once complete you don't have to worry about your hair going anywhere.
  • Safe procedure
    At Visionary Scalps we take extra precaution, but unlike transplants, SMP is not intrusive meaning there is less room for complications and the healing process in significantly shorter. No chemicals are used, just a tattoo gun and sanitation products.
  • Authentic look
    The reason we do multiple sessions is to ensure that your treatment looks as natural as possible.

Our Process

Dream it.

It all begins with a phone call. Getting in touch is usually the hardest part. 

Do it.

The first session involves mapping out the hairline, mapping the sides and back and doing a sparse session. The 2nd session should be booked in within a week or two of the 1st.

Finish it.

Most clients require 3-4 sessions. These sessions allow us to adjust darkness, hairline shapes and grain.

Our Treatments

Male pattern baldness

From receding hairlines to thinning crowns or total baldness we can treat it all. The hair is shaved low so we can match with the impressions.

Hairlines are designed to the clients needs whether this be shaped up, naturally straight or receded.

thinning hair

Hair density treatment is a great use of SMP. Hair is kept long and we work between the strands to darken the scalp.

Scalp colour is no longer paler than the hair so gives an instant fuller, denser appearance.

If client decides to shave head afte,r more sessions are required to complete shaved look.

beard enhancement

This can only be done if there is already some kind of beard coverage. Impressions are placed to fill gaps and thinner areas of the beard.
