Scalp Micropigmentation

The Problem

Up to 50% of men will have experienced some degree of hair loss by the time they reach 50. And for many, hair loss will occur far earlier whilst they are in their 20s, 30s or even late teens.

Although hair transplants are the only permanent solutions for hair restoration, many men and women can’t afford, or simply don’t have enough hair to transplant to balding areas.

The Private Clinic are proud to have partnered with esteemed pigmentation specialists, Finishing Touches Group, to offer the highest quality and experience in scalp micro-pigmentation.

Scalp Micropigmentation also known as SMP is a highly advanced technique of cosmetic pigmentation. Specialised needles are used to implant small dots of coloured pigment into the scalp to replicate a hair follicle, creating densification or to camouflage hair loss. Scalp Micropigmentation can help clients rebuild lost confidence and self-esteem due to hair loss/thinning. These specialised pigments are expected to last 3-5 years depending on the client’s lifestyle and skin type.

Demand for micro-pigmentation is growing immensely due to the impressive results that can be achieved by qualified practitioners. The treatment is suitable for men and women experiencing:

  • Hair loss but don’t have enough donor hair to be transplanted
  • Receding hairlines
  • Crown hair loss
  • Scarring on the scalp
  • Weakening and thinning hair

Micro-pigmentation is a great option to help with;

  • Male and Female Pattern Hair Loss
  • Receding Hairlines
  • Crown Hair Loss
  • Repairing Failed Hair Transplant Treatments
  • Covering scars
  • Adding density to the hair
  • Alopecia conditions

Scalp Micropigmentation can be the most suitable solution for you if you prefer to opt for a non-surgical solution, or if you want to keep your hair at ‘buzz cut’ length but just need that enhanced appearance.

Scalp Micro-pigmentation

Micro-pigmentation is a form of scalp tattooing, during which coloured pigments are implanted, using fine needles, into the scalp to replicate hair follicles, create a dense appearance and camouflage hair loss.

Your treatment journey will begin with a consultation to help our micropigmentation experts understand what results you are hoping to achieve from treatment. They will help to assess your suitability and generate a treatment plan for you and perform a patch test to ensure that you have no allergies relating to the ink used in treatment.

Your first treatment will be about creating the foundation of your new appearance. After your first treatment your scalp will be red but this is only temporary.  Around 1 week later you will return for your second treatment where the technician will fill in the area being treated with darker ink to add more density. 5 – 6 weeks later, you will have your third treatment which is where detail will be added and the final results completed.

Depending on the amount of work needed, the treatment can last between 1 hour and 6 hours.

Male Scalp Micropigmentation

Male Scalp Micropigmentation is ideal for patients who are looking for that buzz cut, no fuss, shaved head look. If you have thinning hair or wish to cover scars, we can offer you a viable realistic solution. Our technicians work from the Norwood Scale, which is the male hair loss density scale used by most hair loss specialists. In the consultation, the technician will estimate how many sessions will be required and how long each session will take.

Female Scalp Micropigmentation

Female Scalp Micropigmentation is a long-lasting solution for women’s hair loss. Scalp micropigmentation will stop the need to disguise seeing your scalp and worrying about how your hair looks. Densification is the ideal answer for ladies with thinning hair. Our technicians work from the Ludwig Scale, which is the female hair loss density scale used by most hair loss specialists. In the consultation, the technician will estimate how many sessions will be required and how long each session will take to complete.

Scar Camouflage Scalp Micropigmentation

Scar Camouflage Scalp Micropigmentation is ideal for patients who have undergone a hair transplant and are looking to reduce the visibility of surgical scars. Our technicians delicately deposit pigment into the scar tissue and surrounding area to help blend out and diminish the visibility of the scarring. By accurately matching the hair colour and creating the look of follicles inside the scar, many patients can expect up to an 85% improvement in the appearance of scarring. A large percentage of scalp micropigmentation clients seek the treatment to help camouflage FUT strip scars. Hair transplant scars can be very visible and limit hairstyle options for the individual, SMP works to try and blend the scars into the hair so styles can be more varied.

Results

You will be able to see the outline of your new hair line immediately after treatment.

Recovery / Downtime

There is no excessive downtime with this treatment. You may experience some redness immediately after the procedure but this will subside after a few hours. Some patients experience swelling and in rare cases bruising but again, this will gradually subside over the next couple of days.
