what can it do?
Hair tattooing (medical known as Scalp Micropigmentation or SMP for short, provides an excellent hair loss solution for both men and women. It has been proven effective, safe and a non-surgical technique that mirrors the look of your natural hair follicles. Clients are left with the appearance of a closely shaven head, or in the case of thinning hair – a thicker, fuller hairline.
Whilst solutions such as: temporary concealers, hair systems and painful hair transplants provide an option to camouflage baldness – they are often high maintenance. A hair tattoo or SMP (Scalp Micropigmentation) is a permanent, stylish and hassle-free procedure. It allows baldness to be disguised completely.
A hair tattoo provides a convincing illusion even if you suffer from a skin disorder, scarring from surgery or an accident, alopecia, pattern baldness or thinning hair. A hair tattoo could be the answer for you’re looking for.

How does it work?
Medical hair tattooing also referred to as Scalp Micropigmentation (or SMP for short), is a remarkable non-surgical procedure. Natural pigments are applied at the epidermal level of the skin via specialist micro needles. This mimics the natural appearance of hair at a very short length. Brandwood Clinic’s technique is trusted as the world’s best available treatment on the market today. Using only natural pigments, top practitioners and state of the art equipment, Brandwood Clinic delivers outstanding, natural looking results.
As hair follicles don’t naturally grow in the same directions, our practitioners take the time to fully observe and reproduce your unique hair pattern. Different shades of pigment are used to create the most realistic hairline for you. At Brandwood Clinic, we only use organic, naturally formulated pigments. They are then mixed with distilled water, alcohol and soothing witch hazel. All of our pigments have been fully tested and comply with COE ResAP (2008) 1 standards. Due to our inks being organic and non-acrylic based, they allow the scalp to hold colour better and to heal faster.
Hair tattooing is suitable for all types of hair loss, on all skin colours and types. The treatment can be undertaken at any age. Your unique hair tattoo is normally completed over the duration of 3 sessions, each lasting on average 3 – 4 hours. This allows for a gradual and natural build up of hair density, matched to your look. This procedure is very flexible; it allows you to change, add to and freshen up your look at anytime in the future.
