SMP® is ultimately a cosmetic skin colouring procedure that requires a highly skilled practitioner to apply specialist pigment into the upper dermis of the scalp.
Over a course of 2 – 3 separate sessions a multitude of different needle sizes, penetration depths, angles, pigment colours and distribution rates will be utilised whilst taking into consideration the area of the scalp being treated, the clients skin tone, any remaining hair and the desired final appearance. Our Scalp MicroPigmentation technique is a highly advanced form of cosmetic skin pigmentation.
The needles used for SMP® do not penetrate as deeply as they do with some other techniques, and we only use tested and approved pigments, not tattoo inks that can bleed / migrate or change colour over time. We use computer controlled microfine needles in triple clusters to achieve the guaranteed consistency of results that our SMP® technique demands.

Our SMP® technique itself uses state of the art computerised equipment. We use a range of specialist, single-use sterile micro needles to penetrate the dermal layer of the skin.
We apply a variety of different shades of specifically blended pigments to guarantee consistent replication of the specific size, shape and density of hair replications and micro hairs. We use different SMP® techniques over the course of treatment to achieve outstanding natural looking results every time. SMP® follows a specifically developed process, whilst utilising a range of different techniques to penetrate the dermis of the skin. This creates the simulation of real looking hair follicles and micro hairs, that are replicated consistently and effectively. The replication of each hair follicle is a detailed process, each one being treated as an individual task. Only by applying this level of attention to detail can the most outstanding, consistent results be achieved.
