SMP is cosmetic tattooing (hair tattooing) that offers a solution to hair loss by replicating hair follicles that are about to grow giving the impression of a shaved look. SMP can treat anywhere on the scalp that is losing hair or even complete baldness of the scalp.
Some people think we only cover a bit of your scalp, but we cover the whole areas that need to be done, you just will not have the same build up as the finished result. It will look like you have more hair follicles on your head, it will look better than when you first walked in and undetectable still.
No not at all, if anything the treatment has been known to stimulate hair growth in some cases.
No not at all even though SMP can be known as a hair tattoo, it is completely different to a tattoo. The pigments used for SMP do not change colour, complete different equipment and needles are used and a complete different technique is used. Also you have to be specially trained to perform scalp micropigmentation.
Results are permanent, but touch ups are needed 1 to 3 years, depending on lifestyle and immune system it can last longer.
1st 2 to 5 hours 2nd 2 to 5 hours and 3rd 2 to 4 hours. All quotes are for 3 visits. 1st to 2nd visit a 10-day gap and 3rd a 4-week gap.
The hair line design is entirely up to you, whether you want a nice natural, receding, sharp defined or a bit of both sharp defined and natural the choice is yours. We draw the hair line on first until your happy with the design, this can take quite a while there is no rush we got to get it right.
The first session we do not go to dark we play it safe, second session we see how the colour has settled, we get some feed back off yourself and see how much more darker we can go, the third session is the same if it needs stepping up we go darker and then we have the finished results the perfect colour match.
Scalp micro pigmentation gives the look of a shaven head or a stubble shadow look, the treatment at LGs will be undetectable only you and LGs will know.
The treatment is perfectly safe, Every needle used is disposed of after each treatment and the equipment is cleaned after every client.
The honest answer is more of a discomfort rather than pain as with a normal tattoo procedure. We advise clients to have eaten well and be in good health on the day of treatment. Our pre-treatment advice also includes moisturising the scalp twice daily in the days/weeks leading up to your procedure. This will help soften the skin. The elation you will feel after solving your hair loss issues will far outweigh any discomfort from the treatment.
We charge £150 for the hour, a touch up usually lasts about 1 to 2 hours depending on fading.
4 days after each treatment you can not train, no sweating whatsoever, this is essential otherwise the treatment will not work. After 4 days you can train but only light training, you cannot sweat excessively for 10 days.
Everyone is different depending on the skin. Some clients the red can go the same day, some take a day and some can take a few days.
