Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP) is a permanent cosmetic tattoo that mimics the very short hairs of a closely shaved scalp.




What is Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP)?

SMP is a new and innovative technique that offers an alternative styling option for men and women who do not want or are not candidates for hair transplant surgery.

SMP with a Hair Transplant

SMP adds to the look of fullness by reducing the contrast between your scalp and your hair color. It can also camouflage scars found on the scalp, including those from strip harvesting.

SMP for Scar Treatment

SMP can be used for a variety of scalp conditions, including genetic male pattern baldness (MPB), scarring alopecias (alopecia areata, alopecia totalis), and scarring from neurosurgical procedures or burns.
