What is scalp micropigmentation (SMP)?

SMP is a cosmetic tattoo that can be used to replicate hair follicles on spots which are about to grow hair again. It can be used to fill in bald areas of the scalp, or even just to copy a shaved look.

What is the cost?

We charge $500 – $4000 depending on the severity of your hair loss, please send photos of your that area of the scalp and we will provide quotes with more details.

Will it look real?

Scalp micropigmentation is a procedure that creates an effect of shaved or shaven head or shaven head stubble, the results are virtually undetectable, only you and people who take care of you will know.

How long will the treatment take?

Hair loss treatment is different for everyone, but in general you’ll need 3-4 sessions over a 6-8 week period. Each session can last 2-4 hours.

How do you choose the right colour shade?

We have experience with people from all cultures. 1st sessions usually start with a lighter shade and we gradually build up density and darkness as we progress to complete your treatment.

How do we choose the front hairline?

If you have a high forehead, we can draw a couple of hairlines so that you know what’s possible. If you take your time in selecting a haircut, a more radical style will look much better. Our trained technicians will examine your head shape and design a hairline that matches you and your personality.

Is SMP the same as a normal tattoo?

No. We use different pigments, inks, machines, needles and techniques. Scalp Micro Pigmentation is a specialist field of its own and requires a highly experienced technician to achieve great results.

Will it damage existing hair?

Not true, as the depth of the needle is only into the upper dermis, if anything the treatment has been known to stimulate hair growth.

Are the results permanent?

Results of completed treatments will last for years, depending on lifestyle and immune system. Many clients like to have a top-up session after 2 or 3 years just to keep their new style looking fresh.

How much does a top-up session cost?

Touch up prices vary according to what is needed. Price for an existing client is usually $300 and for SMP repair prices start at $600.

Does the colour discolour (turn orange/blue)?

No, as we only use a carbon based black pigment which is diluted to match your skin tone.

Do you match direction of hair growth?

Yes, direction of hair growth is always taken into consideration for the most realistic results.

Does the treatment hurt?

Yes, during the procedure you will feel discomfort. We advice clients to have eaten well and be in good health on the day of treatment. Our pre-treatment advice also includes moisturizing the scalp before your procedure. This will help soften the skin.

How flexible are you on bookings?

We’ll work around your work or social life no problem, weekends late nights early mornings are all ok. Creative Scalps has one of the most skilled and experienced technicians in the world, so we do sometimes have waiting lists of 4-6 weeks.
