WHAT IS SMP?

SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION

Often referred to as SMP or Hair Tattoo, this unique cosmetic procedure provides life changing treatments for pattern baldness, hair thinning, receding hairlines alopecia and more.  

 

SMP can also fill in and camouflage the look of FUT & FUE transplant or other scars and add density to hair transplant areas to create a fuller look. 

SMP is the only hair loss treatment that can fully guarantee results and provide a long lasting solution for hair loss. Inkd SMP specialises in an ultra realistic and undetectable look. No one will know you've had the treatment done, unless you tell them!

During your treatment, hair follicles are recreated using a detailed "dotting" tattoo method, where ink is gradually deposited into the skin in multiple sessions or "layers". 

 

The technique differs from that of traditional tattooing as there are no lines or shading and the ink is only deposited as deep as the papillary layer of skin, just below the epidermis. The machine, ink and micro needles used are specialised for SMP.. 


The addition of tattooed SMP follicles to the scalp reduces the contrast between visible skin and hair, thus creating the illusion of new or thicker hairs. For those with receding hairlines or sporting the shaved head look, we offer complete hairline recreation and filling in of balding crowns, scars and other patches. For hair thinning and longer hairstyles we add density and fullness by tattooing around your natural hair follicles.

Clients typically need 2-4 sessions to complete their treatment, which will vary by the treatment type and the extent of hair loss. SMP is a semi-permanent treatment and does fade over time as your skin sheds naturally, and may require a touch-up within 2-5 years to freshen up the colour. 

Unlike hair growth treatments and transplants, the results of SMP treatments are guaranteed and can be seen after just 1 session! 

 

No more hair fibres, wig systems, or hiding under hats - With Inkd SMP you can expect natural and undetectable results every time.

3 SESSIONS TO A NEW YOU

So you've done your research, you like our vibe and have chosen Inkd SMP (thanks!) for your treatment, what happens now?

Once we've completed your initial consultation and discussed what you'd like to achieve from your treatment, we book you in for your first session and get started on your transformation! Typically clients require 2-4 sessions to complete their look. As everyone's scalp is different we will advise you during your consult on the number of sessions you will require and reassess after session 1 to monitor how your skin accepts the SMP pigment. 

SESSION 1 


This is where we create the foundation of your treatment. For men receiving a new hairline, we always start conservative, spacing the tattooed follicles further apart to allow us to build upon the base. The basic shape of your treatment is now visible and outlined.  

SESSION 2 


Your new look really starts to show! Ink from session 1 has settled and it's now time to add fullness to the look and fill in between the initial dots. Making any adjustments required to the ink colour, we continue to blend the tattoo into your natural hair and the tattooed follicles from session 1. Session 2 is spaced 7-14 days after session 1 depending on your treatment.  

SESSION 3 


In session 3 we add more density, blend and making any final changes to the hairline as needed. Adding the finishing touches and details for a flawless and natural looking finish. Spaced 2 weeks after session 2 for both hairline recreations and density treatments. 

Quotes 

Prices are based off the treatment type (bald with hairline recreation / or density on long hair) and the extent of your hair loss, so it varies for each individual.

Please email us pictures of your hair for an assessment and quote, or call us to arrange a no obligation consultation.
