Scalp micropigmentation in London is an effective hair loss treatment. It replicates the natural appearance of hair follicles on your scalp, which is achieved by implanting pigment into the skin of the scalp with a needle. This gives you the appearance of a full head of hair that has been shaved, with a selection of hairlines available.
The dwindling confidence that comes with hair loss is a thing of the past. No need to use a hat or spend money on unnatural-looking wigs, hair pieces, procedures, or medications anymore. Whether you are losing hair due to genetic reasons or alopecia, wish to cover up scars, or stop your receding hairline, getting scalp micropigmentation in London (or anywhere else in the UK for that matter) might just be the solution you were looking for. It is non-surgical, and the results are instant!


Having a full head of hair is a privilege not everyone is blessed with. Whether it is your genetics, the stress of work, or an illness, losing hair is a common issue. If we look into history, hair loss has been a problem for centuries, and the quest to find a solution has also been difficult. Sadly, replacing hair on your head and gaining the lost volume and density is costly and doesn’t always look natural. Compared to all these treatments and solutions, getting scalp micro pigmentation in London is the perfect answer to your hair loss issues.

Scalp Micropigmentation London


You will have a fuller head of hair which will boost your confidence by enhancing your appearance. It is affordable, and there is no need for daily application or extensive maintenance. After the treatment, you will only have to go for a touch-up every few years and follow a straightforward aftercare regime. As a result, you will be free from worrying about hair loss, bald patches and similar issues. 
Getting micropigmentation is painless because it is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that does not require any recovery time. There are almost no side effects other than a little redness of the affected area. This redness usually goes away within 24 to 48 hours of the procedure; the outcome, however, is permanent and will last for years with a little upkeep.

How does the procedure work?

Unlike other hair loss and balding solutions, scalp micropigmentation looks entirely natural. This is because, instead of growing hair on your scalp or covering it in artificial hair, micropigmentation focuses on creating the illusion of hair follicles. During a session of scalp micro pigmentation in London or anywhere else in the UK, hair follicles will be tattooed on your scalp using ink to emulate the natural look; these dots will have different depths. It is a modern and permanent solution used for making very short or thin hair appear denser. The treatment is suitable for both men and women over the age of 18.


If you have been feeling more self-conscious or lacking confidence due to thin hair or bald patches, getting scalp micropigmentation in London can help. Whether you are a man or woman, losing hair regularly and at an alarming rate is devastating.
Along with causing anxiety, this can keep you from daily activities such as swimming, going out with friends and family, attending parties and more. Getting micro scalp pigmentation in London can prevent you from focusing on your hair loss by restoring the illusion of a fuller head of hair. It will restore self-confidence and help you return to daily life and regular activities.

Who can benefit from scalp micropigmentation?

A skilled scalp micropigmentation practitioner will tell you that this procedure aims to put tiny and layered dots on the skin of your scalp at different depths to create the illusion of natural-looking hair. They will do their best to ensure that the dots blend seamlessly with your complexion and look natural. The procedure is perfect for people suffering from every form of hair loss, including:
● Cancer
● Alopecia
● Genetic hair loss
● Thinning hair
● Male and female pattern baldness
If you are suffering from any of these conditions and are over 18 years old, you can explore the option of getting scalp micropigmentation in London or anywhere in the UK, in order to regain your hair and lost confidence. Before the procedure, you will go through a consultation session with your chosen SMP practitioner. They can help you to better understand the procedure and its benefits.

Will the procedure hurt?

From the outset, it may seem like the micropigmentation of your scalp will hurt. This is not always the case though! Different people experience the procedure differently. Likewise, people’s pain tolerance varies too, which means that for some, SMP will be painful, for others it will not. The practitioner will apply a topical numbing agent on the area, but despite that, there can be some discomfort. If you are prone to scalp acne or psoriasis, SMP should be avoided during a flare-up or breakout, as it can cause further pain.


Before opting for scalp micropigmentation, you should familiarise yourself with some of our advised guidelines. They will help enhance your experience with these points:
● You must shower before each session because you won’t be able to wash your scalp or wet it for at least four days after each appointment
● Each session usually takes between four to five hours
● The number of sessions you require will depend on the SMP practitioner and what they think is the best
● Your sessions will usually be scheduled a few weeks apart unless your consultant thinks otherwise
● You should not go swimming, use the sauna or steam rooms, or take extremely hot showers between sessions
● Your scalp should not be exposed to the sun for at least four days after each session of scalp micro pigmentation in London (or anywhere in the UK). On the fifth day, you may expose your scalp to the sun, but not for more than an hour. Less exposure will mean better long-term effects from the treatment
● Once the final session is over, you should stay away from swimming pools, saunas and steam rooms for a minimum of 28 days. You should also stay away from the sun for the same period and use sunscreen with SPF 30-50 afterwards
● You should avoid heavy exercise for at least five days after the final session and regularly moisturise your scalp after the fourth day of the treatment

Scalp micropigmentation effects and risks

Scalp micropigmentation is considered semi-permanent, which means it will last for years, but some regular maintenance is needed. The outcome may last up to 8 years but will eventually disappear with natural skin exfoliation. The colour will fade with time if you do not take proper care of your skin. If you have dry skin, there will be more exfoliation, and the effects will fade faster. If your skin is not that dry, it will take longer.
Despite being non-surgical, there can be certain risks associated with scalp micropigmentation, such as allergic reactions and a chance of infection.
