Professional Scalp Micropigmentation Services

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is the number one hair loss treatment in the UK with our clinic based near Cardiff, South Wales. It is also known as hair micropigmentation or a hair tattoo and is a non-surgical treatment that uses small needles to deposit ink pigment into the scalp.
The result creates the appearance of natural shaved hair follicles giving people with complete hair loss the visual look of a full head of hair that has been shaved. For those suffering from thinning, it restores the look of full, thick hair.
SMP (What is SMP) results are evident from the first session and can completely change your life if your self-esteem is lacking from hair loss. If you are starting to thin, recede, or become completely bald, we can change that, together.

What can SMP treat?

A black balding man


SMP can be used to restore a natural-looking crown and hairline. This is created by adding microdots of ink into the scalp, giving the illusion of real follicles. This treatment is suitable for both men and women who suffer with pattern-baldness, also known as pattern hair loss.

A density treatment is suitable for both men and women. It can be applied to thinning hair and bald patches making it look fuller and thicker. The hair can be kept long or shaven and we will place pigment in-between the follicles which will make it appear fuller and less receded. 


The perfect solution for the many forms of this condition, as the effects can be disguised by placing pigment into the scalp where hair loss has taken place. This gives the effect of a full closely-cropped/shaved head of hair. This non-intrusive treatment covers all forms of alopecia.

Conceal scars and  burns by having micro dots placed into the tissue which helps blend into the existing hair. Whether you have had a failed hair transplantation, a burn or its from an operation, scarring on the scalp has a tendency to really stand out and draw attention immediately to it.

What Do These Treatments Look Like?

Hair tattoos look real (like shaved hair) when undertaken by a highly skilled SMP specialist. They can be used to imitate a closely cropped scalp, fill patches in for alopecia clients or used as a density treatment for diffuse thinning hair. They can also be used to camouflage hair transplant scars.

How Do These Work?

Unlike hair transplants, this process uses a tattoo gun. Pigment is placed into the balding scalp and amongst the surrounding hair, with the tiny ink dots imitating natural tiny hair follicles. The result gives a scalp with a natural-looking appearance, people will never know you’ve had it done. 

How Long Do The Results Last?

The lifespan of a hair tattoo can range anywhere from two to five years, and depends on factors such as the aftercare, the type of ink used and direct exposure to sunlight. You may require a touch-up over time as the skin naturally exfoliates itself and may fade slightly. Having a touch-up will keep your SMP looking fresh and looking like new

Is This Solution Permanent?

This is a permanent hair loss solution but does require touch-ups every few years to keep it looking fresh. The treatment involves placing micro dots of pigment into the scalp to replicate the look of natural hair follicles. Permanent cosmetic pigments are used for SMP.

Are These Treatments Painful?

The practitioner’s process is typically pain-free and doesn’t hurt like a traditional inking, although, it can be slightly uncomfortable near the hairline. A traditional approach goes through 7 layers of skin whilst hair tattoos only go down 2 layers (dermis), which makes it less painful.

Is Scalp Micropigmentation Safe?

Yes, this treatment is totally safe and risk-free. The pigment is non-toxic and safe to use, so you should not have any negative side effects and the procedure should not be too uncomfortable or painful. We have never seen an adverse reaction on a client’s scalp due to having Scalp Micropigmentation.

How long does this approach take?

This treatment is usually carried out over 3 visits and a full session for a Norwood 7 client usually takes 4-9 hours and depends on the size of the area. There are 2 weeks between visits 1 and 2, with a 3rd session taking place 3 weeks later.
