SMP: What is it?

Scalp Micropigmentation, what is it?

Scalp Micropigmentation is the ultimate hair loss solution for both men and women. Proven to be safe and effective, this non-surgical precision technique replicates the look of natural hair follicles and provides clients with the appearance of a closely-shaven scalp. SMP delivers the vision of a full head of hair indefinitely.

Whether you are suffering from male or female pattern baldness, alopecia, thinning hair, a skin disorder or scalp scarring from surgery or an accident, Scalp Micropigmentation is the answer.

Baldness cannot be ‘cured’, however it can be camouflaged. Traditional solutions such as hair transplant surgery, temporary concealers and hair systems all offer options to disguise baldness but for an innovative, stylish and permanent hassle free solution, SMP is the answer.

At Brandwood Clinic we will create a completely natural look for you that can be truly life changing.

Benefits to you

Brandwood Clinic’s Micro Pigmentation treatment can restore the natural close-shaved appearance of real hair follicles to a completely bald head or hair “strands” to a thinning head of hair to give the illusion of fuller hair coverage.

  • Provides you with a full and youthful looking head of closely shaven ‘hair’.
  • Restores a naturally looking hairline on part or fully bald heads.
  • Permanently camouflages all forms of alopecia, thinning hair, crown balding or a receding hairline.
  • Dramatically reduces the visual impact of scarring, birthmarks and burns.
  • Helps to rebuild your confidence and self-esteem.

How does it work?

SMP is an advanced cosmetic procedure where natural pigments are applied via specialist micro needles at the epidermal level of the scalp to replicate the natural appearance of thousands of hair follicles or strands. The Brandwood Clinic technique is regarded as the best treatment available in the world today, using only natural pigments and state of the art equipment to achieve outstanding natural looking results.

Hair follicles don’t always grow naturally in uniform directions so our practitioners take the time to fully replicate the distinctions of your specific hair pattern. Different shades of pigment are then used to create the most realistic and natural hairline for you. All the pigments used at Brandwood Clinic are organic, formulated from organic powder, distilled water, witch hazel & alcohol. They have been fully tested and comply with COE ResAP (2008) 1 standards. As our inks are non-acrylic and organic they allow the body to heal faster and hold the colour better.

Scalp Micropigmentation is suitable for all types and stages of hair-loss, on all colours and skin types with treatment undertaken at any age. The follicle recreation process generally takes place over 3 sessions, each lasting approximately 3 – 4 hours – allowing for a gradual build up of hair density and a natural rejuvenation of hairline to your desired look. SMP is flexible too, allowing you to adapt and freshen your look at anytime in the future.
