About SMP

Scalp Micropigmentation is the ultimate in non-surgical male and female hair follicle replication; 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. Scalp micropigmentation can be used to camouflage baldness either as a standalone procedure for someone who does not want to undergo hair transplant or combined with a hair transplant to enhance a surgical result. At other times, the micropigmentation can be used to camouflaged a scare, for instance, a linear donor scare in the back of the head, with or without hair transplant in to the scar.
To create the appearance of hair Nico uses cosmetic pigmentation and state-of-the-art equipment to create your desired hairline, add density to thinning areas, and blend into your existing hair for a seamless look.
Scalp pigmentation requires little to no continued maintenance and carries no strict lifestyle or daily restrictions. It replicates the look of a freshly groomed haircut, fresh from the barbershop. Our clients spend half the time getting ready!

What is SMP (Scalp Micropigmentation)?

Sometimes called a “hair tattoo”, SMP uses tiny ink impressions place on the scalp to create the look of a full, robust hairline cut very closely. It’s the perfect solution for balding, concealing scars and alopecia, and densifying thin hair.
  • Non-surgical
  • No drugs
  • Procedure may cause discomfort but very little pain, if any. On average, clients rate their discomfort between 0-2 on a scale from 0-10.
  • Durable & long-lasting **To create the most natural appearance possible, on average, patients receive two to three treatments spaced out 10-14 days between each session, followed by “touch ups” every 3-5 years, if needed.

What is Facial Micropigmentation?

Facial Micropigmentation (FMP) is the same exact concept and technique as Scalp Micropigmentation but obviously on the face.

By matching the skin tone and facial hair color to the proper pigment shade, light impressions are made on the mustache or beard to fill in any bald patches.

This creates a perfect blend of density with the beard shaved at a zero guard giving the appearance of 5 o’clock shadow with a full natural beard of evenly blended stubble.

It can be done on patchy beards or to create an entire natural beard of density (stubble) on the entire face for those with issues growing facial hair or those with none at all.

This can also eliminate Alopecia Areata and Alopecia Totalis for those struggling with these issues.

Just as a natural shaved appearance (buzz cut) is created with Scalp Micropigmentation on the scalp the same is created on the beard with Facial Micropigmentation to eliminate any lack of facial hair or complete facial baldness.

If you struggle with any of these issues schedule your consultation so we can put an end to it once and for all with a natural real look of full facial hair.
