Faux Scar Scalp Micropigmentation Hairline

At Creative Scalps Arizona, we’re excited to offer the latest in SMP (Scalp Micropigmentation) techniques – the Faux Scar. This technique is a great way to add authenticity to your SMP procedure and create a look that is truly unique to you.

The Faux Scar technique involves the creation of a “scar” on the scalp using SMP pigments. This scar can be placed at the front edge of the hairline or set back behind it, giving you endless possibilities for customization. Our skilled scalp artists carefully craft the scar to create a cracked version with different shading and density around it, giving it an extra realistic look and style.

One of the most popular ways we incorporate the Faux Scar technique is by adding it to a Faded Hairline. The results are truly incredible – the combination of the two techniques creates a natural and subtle look that is unmatched in the industry.

If you already have a small scar on your scalp, we can incorporate it into the design and work around it to create a seamless look. And if you don’t have a scar but want to try the Faux Scar technique, we can create one for you that fits your desired look and style.

At Creative Scalps Arizona, we’re dedicated to helping our clients achieve the look they want with SMP. Our scalp artists have years of experience and are trained to the highest standards in the industry. We use only the best pigments and equipment to ensure that you get the best results possible.

In addition to the Faux Scar technique, we offer a variety of other SMP services, including Full Head, Hairline Restoration, Scar Camouflage, and Density Work. We understand that every client’s needs are different, which is why we offer personalized consultations to discuss your goals and create a plan that works for you.

We also understand that SMP is a big decision, which is why we take the time to educate our clients on the process and answer any questions they may have. Our goal is to ensure that you feel comfortable and confident throughout the entire SMP procedure.

If you’re interested in the Faux Scar technique or any of our other SMP services, we invite you to schedule a consultation with us at Creative Scalps Arizona. Our team is here to help you achieve the look you want and feel confident in your appearance.


What is scalp micropigmentation (SMP)?

Cosmetic tattooing, also known as medical hair tattooing, gives the appearance of a shaved head by replicating hair follicles that are about to grow. SMP can treat hair loss anywhere on the scalp, even if the scalp is completely bald.

What is the cost?

$800 per session with a deposit of $300 to book your appointment. if you send us pictures of your hair loss, we can give you a precise quote with more information.

Will it look real?

The treatment at Creative Scalps will be undetectable; only you, the people you choose to tell, and Creative Scalps will know. Scalp micropigmentation gives the appearance of a shaved head or a stubble shadow.

How long will the treatment take?

This depends on how much hair is falling out. You can expect three to four sessions spread out over six to eight weeks. The duration of each session can range from two to four hours.

How do you choose the right colour shade?

This is done based on your skin tone and/or the color of your remaining hair. We have extensive experience working with a wide range of clients from all walks of life. Typically, the first session begins with a lighter shade, and as we progress through your treatment, we gradually increase density and darkness.

How do we choose the front hairline?

We can draw some hairlines on you after looking at some pictures of hairlines. When selecting hairlines, it is always best to avoid going too low the first time around. You would then have decided how low you want to go on the second visit. We can also create a variety of hairline styles based on your preferences, such as jagged, soft, slightly receding, edged up, and designs. Creative Scalps has developed methods and procedures to guarantee that your hairline will be in the right place and will complement your style. We have years of top-notch experience as barbers to ensure that this is done correctly.

Is SMP the same as a normal tattoo?

No. We employ a variety of pigments, inks, machines, needles, and methods. Scalp micropigmentation is a highly specialized procedure that can only be performed by highly skilled technicians.

Will it damage existing hair?

No, because the needle only penetrates the upper dermis, the treatment has actually been shown to encourage hair growth.

Are the results permanent?

Depending on lifestyle and immune system, treatment outcomes last for years. In order to maintain the freshness of their new style, many clients like to have a top-up session every two to three years.

How much does a top-up session cost?

Prices for TOP-UP $800. Prices for a previous customer can range anywhere from $300 to $600.

Can I go the gym or do any sort of training after treatment?

After each treatment, you should allow the treatment to dry heal for four days for the best results. This would entail avoiding sweat, water, and all creams, lotions, and the like.
After this time, you can gradually increase your activity.

Will my head be red/sore and how long will this last?

Depending on their skin type, everyone is unique. In order to ensure that you leave the clinic looking and feeling great, our technician will clean your treatment and apply an anti-redness topical anesthetic right away. In most cases, the redness will last for one or two days.

Is the treatment safe?

We use sterile equipment and brand-new packaged needles for every procedure, ensuring that the treatment is completely risk-free. We are fully insured and regulated, and we take health and safety very seriously.

Does the colour discolour (turn orange/blue)?

No, as our only black pigment is carbon-based and diluted to match your skin tone.

Do you match direction of hair growth?

Yes, for the most accurate results, hair growth direction is always taken into account.

Does the treatment hurt?

The honest response is that, as with any tattoo procedure, you will experience discomfort. On the day of treatment, we advise clients to have eaten well and be in good health. In the days and weeks leading up to your procedure, we also recommend moisturizing the scalp twice daily as part of our pre-treatment advice. The skin will feel softer as a result. The joy you’ll experience after resolving your hair loss issues will far outweigh any treatment discomfort.

How flexible are you on bookings?

We can easily accommodate your work or social schedule, and weekends with late nights and early mornings are acceptable. Because Creative Scalps employs one of the most skilled and experienced technicians in the world, we occasionally have waiting lists that last anywhere from four to six weeks.
