Scalp Micropigmentation or SMP is the revolutionary procedure of a realistic, undetectable tattoo for the hairline and scalp area and is suitable for both men and women.
Using a micro-pigmenting technique recreates the look of short or shaved hairs by strategically placing pigments on to the scalp. This technique can be performed on short or long hair and can help redefining your hairline, mask the signs of Alopecia Areata, camouflage scarring and old hair transplant scars.
SMP + Hair Transplant Combination - the Crown Clinic Full Density Hair Transplant. SMP can also be combined with FUE Hair Transplant surgery. An SMP+FUE combination procedure is a great solution, offering clients the texture of real hair with unlimited density.

The SMP Procedure
Scalp Micropigmentation is a semi-permanent technique using colour pigments applied to the skin. We create fine hair-like strokes to disguise the look of thinning hair on the scalp. A hypo-allergenic pigment is implanted into the skin and will generally last from 2 to 5 years. Results will vary depending on the client’s exposure to sun and resistance to pigment.
Anaesthetic is applied to decrease any pain or discomfort during the procedure. Depending on the depth of colour requested, most people are comfortable in public within 2 to 5 days.
For larger procedures we usually recommend a “test” patch before performing the whole procedure – this will allow you to see the initial effect.
Is this the same as a normal "tattoo"?
Yes and no. Yes - it can be considered as a form of tattoo, however, the pigments are distilled water based (opposed to the common oil carrier based pigments in conventional tattoos) thus resulting to a semi-permanent lasting result.
The work involved with SMP is only performed on the skin surface - thus, making it a MUCH SAFER treatment than traditional cosmetic tattoos. The colour can also be adjusted in alignment with the original hair colour, which results in a realistic look. Unlike normal cosmetic tattoos, this technique does not leave a flat, dull and fake look that tattoos leave behind.
How long will the treatment last?
Treatments will last from 2 to 5 years, with retouches recommended when needed. All initial treatments will need between 2 to 4 sessions to achieve your final result.
