What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp Micropigmentation (medical hairline tattoo) is the ultimate in non-surgical male and female scalp grooming; an incredible life-changing treatment where natural pigments are applied at the epidermal level of the scalp to replicate the natural appearance of real hair follicles or strands – depending on your hair loss extent, and desired look. Our method is regarded as the best treatment of its kind available in the world today, using only natural pigments and application methods. Our practitioners are fully qualified to Diploma standard for permanent cosmetics and micro pigmentation treatments and recognise that your follicles don’t always naturally grow in the same direction, our team will replicate the natural eddies and idiosyncrasies of your hair pattern. They also understand that your hair follicles are not all the same shade, our team frequently use 3-4 shades of pigment to create the most realistic finish – giving a younger more confident hairline.
Scalp Micropigmentation is suitable for all types and stages of hair-loss, on all ages, colours and skin types.
The human head has on average 2,000 hairs per square inch. When thinning occurs, it can be a depressing time, stigmas attached to balding & premature ageing in both men and women can affect confidence and mood. Scalp Micropigmentation can restore even a completely bald head to look like a full head of well-groomed hair.
The follicle/strand build up of Scalp Micropigmentation normally takes place over 3 sessions, each taking approx 3-4 hours with at least one week between sessions. The process allows for a very gradual and subtle rejuvenation/infill of the hairline, rarely identified even by close friends and family.
During the procedure, a cartridge containing 3 needles working in symphony gently inject natural pigment into the 2nd dermal skin layer. Skalp only uses the latest innovative technology.
Pigment spacing is determined by replicating the remaining natural hair follicles. Our practitioners have unrivalled experience and reputation and wont rest until they reach perfection.

Scalp Micropigmentation Revision and Reversal
As we age, we will tend to change our opinion on the best look for our hair and hairline. Laser revision can be used for a completely new look, shape and colour, or to tweak to suit new fashions and trends.
Changes can include: changing the hairline position, raising the hairline to create an older, more receded look, changing side hair shape, addition of sideburns and changing the hairline shape. Although we have not had any requests for it, you can be reassured that complete reversal is an option, albeit an unlikely one.
All of these revisions are done using a laser application. Our pigment goes far less deep than skin tattooing so the laser removal is a much more straightforward and painless procedure, usually requiring only 1-2 sessions.
