SMP is an aesthetic tattoo technique that reproduces the appearance of hair follicles. SMP is commonly used to treat thinning hair, baldness, alopecia and scars. For males if you choose to crop your hair short scalp will appear “shaved”. For females it will give the appearance of fullness/ density of hair where the scalp was previously visible. It may also be used to camouflage scars and receding hairlines.

You will feel a mild scratching sensation as the treatment is commenced. The overall time taken per session will be 1-3 hours.
Scalp Micropigmentation Aftercare
Once your treatment is complete, you are free to resume your normal activities. You may find that your scalp is a little swollen and the skin a little pink post treatment but this settle down quite quickly.
There is placement of micropigmentation, that are minute particles synthetic iron oxide colour pigment, The pigment is placed approximately millimetre below the skin’s surface using a hand-piece and singe use sterile disposable needle.
The time is dependent on how much hair loss you have and how extensive it is. Small areas take 1 hour and larger areas more than this.
No, we use a topical anaesthetic before treatment to make it as comfortable as possible. It usually feels like someone is scratching your scalp.
Scalp Micro Pigmentation is semi-permanent and should last between 1 to 3 years.

I can’t recommend EA clinic enough. I have had several procedures there now (vaser liposuction, mole removal and peels) and between Gill and Dr Anthony I have been so well looked after. They are consistently professional, passionate and clear in the options they provide you. Whether it is consultation, procedure or aftercare Dr Anthony always has so much time to make you feel at ease and fully informed. Both Gill and Dr Anthony are also friendly which is so lovely and welcoming as a patient. Overall I feel so much happier and confident since seeing the team at EA Clinic.
