SMP for Men

Scalp Micropigmentation For Men

Scalp Envy
Hair loss can be camouflaged or hidden entirely with the help of SMP (Scalp Micropigmentation), a non-invasive, effective and safe treatment for men. This non-surgical method is great for men with a receding hairline, alopecia, hair transplant scars, thinning hair, and male pattern baldness (MPB), since it provides noticeable results after just one treatment. This hair loss solution for men is also known as a hair tattoo, cosmetic tattoo or medical tattoo. It can give you the buzz-cut look and can be added as density throughout existing hair and long hair.

The SMP Process

The treatment involves placing a specific pigment colour directly into the skin between the hair follicles. The process causes minimal discomfort at most, and it is completely non-invasive and non-surgical. 

The desired effect can be achieved by using either a single pigmentation hue or a combination of pigmentation shades to create the illusion of a full head of hair which is completed with a natural hairline. The initial appointment will show improvement, but the full benefit will not be evident for until three to four sessions.  


What Kind of Hair Loss Does SMP Treat?

Scalp micropigmentation can be used in a variety of ways, and it produces inexpensive and permanent results. SMP helps with many forms of hair loss:

Receding Hairline

Thin hair at the temples or the hairline is a frequent problem for males, but SMP can help. This treatment allows for the creation of hairlines that are uniquely tailored to each individual client. There are several different types; Soft, feathered, sharp, jagged and broken hairline. Always put in the time and effort required to find the best scalp specialist for your treatment needs as an incorrect hairline can make your SMP appear uneven.


SMP for Density

Do you have weak or thinning hair and need to add density? This popular treatment can help thicken the hair that already exists by filling in the spaces between the hair follicles on the scalp. This aids in covering up the thin areas so your head of hair appears thicker and fuller overall.


Pattern Baldness 

One of the main reasons SMP is gaining popularity among bald guys is its ability to disguise hair loss. 90% of male balding can be attributed to male pattern baldness. Almost all men will experience this in their lifetime; it’s very normal. About 80% of men and women will experience visible hair thinning by the time they turn 50. Many men find the gradual thinning of their hair unsightly and you certainly aren’t alone in wishing you had thicker hair. 

Pattern baldness is a genetic disorder that develops as men age due to changes in male hormones. Men’s bodies start to change the hormone testosterone into the hormone dihydrotestosterone as a natural process of ageing (DHT). It is thought that men who are genetically prone to male pattern baldness experience negative effects from dihydrotestosterone on their hair follicles. Dihydrotestosterone eventually causes the hair follicles in males to become smaller, which leads to the growth of thinner, shorter strands of hair. Hair in affected areas will continue to thin out and shorten as follicles continue to shrink, finally failing to create new hair strands. The effects of male pattern baldness are usually permanent, and many men struggle with anxiety and lack of self-esteem. 



This autoimmune disease occurs when the body has the inability to grow hair where it normally would, such as on the scalp, face, or the rest of the body. It comes in many forms, such as Totalis (the entire scalp loses hair), Universalis (loss of hair all over the body), Areata (patchy hair) and more. Scalp Pigmentation can give alopecia sufferers a solution to regain confidence and get their lives back on track while providing a viable solution to partial or complete hair loss.
