If you're dealing with hair loss or thinning hair, you've probably looked into hair loss solutions. From hair transplant procedures to medications, there are a lot of treatments that promise to restore hair density.
One of the most popular options is scalp micropigmentation (SMP). This procedure offers a non-invasive way to give the look of fuller, thicker hair. In this comprehensive guide, we'll look into the cost of SMP and help you understand what to expect on your journey toward a new look.
What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)—sometimes called scalp tattoos— is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that addresses hair loss, thinning hair, or baldness. Contrast to tattooing, we use a microneedle to apply tiny dots of specialized pigments to the scalp to restore the look of thinning hair.
It is ideal for those that experience hair loss due to male or female pattern baldness, alopecia, hormonal issues, or hereditary hair loss. If you have patchy hair loss, SMP can help reduce the appearance of patches. For those with complete hair loss, it can give the look of a shaved head or five o'clock shadow. The pigment is matched to your natural hair color and skin tone, giving the most natural look possible.
It's a non-surgical procedure with no recovery time. When it comes to pain, many clients report that the it hurts less than a tattoo.
Scalp micropigmentation is an alternative hair restoration solution for those who are not . It simply improves the appearance of patchy or thin hair.

How Many Treatments Does it Take?
Scalp micropigmentation is completed over two treatment sessions completed one week apart. Some clients require a third treatment 1-3 months after the second. Most clients get a touch-up every 5-8 years, making it a very low maintenance option.
Factors That Influence Scalp Micropigmentation Cost
As we mentioned, the average scalp micropigmentation cost varies from person to person. Here are some of the factors that have an impact on the cost of treatment.
Treatment Area Size
The size of the treatment area is one of the determining factors when it comes to the overall cost of SMP. Treating the full head is more costly than addressing smaller areas like a receding hairline, scar, or patches since larger treatment areas naturally require more time and resources.
Severity of Hair Loss
The severity of hair loss varies from person to person. If you are experiencing advanced stages of hair loss or you have dark hair, you will probably require more extensive coverage to achieve the desired results. This impacts the overall cost.
Number of Sessions
Your entire scalp micropigmentation treatment is completed in 2-3 sessions, depending on your unique situation and goals. While some individuals may achieve their goals in two sessions, others may need additional refinement or touch-up sessions.
Additional Services or Customization
Additional services like scar camouflage or hairline redesign contribute to the overall cost of SMP.
