Scalp Micropigmentation Perth

What is
Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a cosmetic hair loss treatment that uses hair tattooing techniques to create the appearance of a full head of hair. It is a non-surgical, minimally-invasive treatment that uses detailed micro-needles to deposit pigment into the scalp. This creates the appearance of individual hair follicles, effectively masking baldness, receding or thinning hair, and scalp scarring. The results of SMP are natural-looking, long-lasting, and highly effective. It is a perfect solution for those who are looking for an alternative to hair transplants or other hair restoration procedures.

It’s Time To Rethink Your Approach to Hair Loss – FAQs

Who Can Benefit From SMP?

Hair loss is a common concern that affects a significant portion of the population, both men and women, of all ages. It is estimated that 80% of men and over half of women will experience hair loss at some point in their lives. While the physical changes of hair loss are well documented, many individuals are unaware of the emotional and psychological effects it can have on one’s self-esteem. Scalp micropigmentation is an ideal solution for people experiencing all forms of hair loss.

This treatment can create the appearance of fuller hair in individuals who have:

  • Male pattern baldness (AGA)
  • Female pattern baldness (AGA)
  • Various forms of alopecia
  • Fine, thinning hair, or patches of hair loss
  • Medicine-related hair loss
  • Scars due to injuries or birthmarks on the scalp (this includes FUE/FUT scarring, strip scarring, plug scarring, alopecia scarring, and accident scarring)

Scalp Micropigmentation vs Hair Transplant Surgery

Scalp micropigmentation is an innovative approach to addressing visible signs of hair loss, but it differs from a traditional hair transplant. While you can combine the two to achieve your desired look, SMP is also a great alternative to hair transplant surgery and offers the following advantages:

  1. It’s safer
    Unlike other hair loss treatments involving surgical incisions, chemicals, and medications with possible side effects, a hair tattoo in Perth is a minimally-invasive procedure with no real downtime. When done correctly by a licensed artist – there’s no risk of scarring, infection, or other complications that could arise post-procedure.
  2. Low maintenance
    SMP is a more permanent solution to hair loss than other hair restoration techniques, which are not always practical depending on an individual’s degree of hair loss and available donor hair. With SMP, real hair is not actually implanted, so you can enjoy all the benefits of a fuller-looking scalp without investing in expensive products or medications for maintenance. Hair tattoos may lighten over time due to sun exposure, but should not discolour if done correctly. Depending on factors like further hair loss, exposure to UV rays, and your immune system – touch-ups may be necessary in two to five years.
  3. Non Invasive
    SMP involves no incisions or scalp-scarring, requires no donor hair, and does not cause damage to the existing hair follicles. Scalp micropigmentation is a great option for those seeking an alternative to hair restoration methods.
  4. Cost-effective
    Scalp micropigmentation in Perth typically costs far less than other traditional hair restoration treatments, even if further ‘touch-up’ sessions are required in the future.

How Much Does SMP Cost?

For full details on costs, please visit our SMP pricing page. As a rough guide, this is what you can expect to pay for scalp micropigmentation services in Perth. Please note though that every head is unique, so in order to give you a fully customised quote we’ll need to assess your individual situation. 

Mild Hair Loss: $500 – $1200
Medium Hair Loss: $1500 – $2200 
Advanced Hair Loss: $2200 – $3200 

How Long Does a Hair Tattoo Take?

There is no one answer to this, as everyone has a unique situation that they find themselves in on their hair loss journey. If you have more advanced hair loss, typically this will require around three sessions of SMP, ensuring you are healing in between each session. Each session itself depends again on your personal level of hair loss, but it can range between 1-4 hours. 

Once the treatment is completed, many clients tend to come back in after 5 years or so to have an SMP touch-up. To find out how many sessions you would require, please book a free consultation with one of our SMP artists

Is There A Difference Between a Hair Tattoo & a Regular Tattoo?

The short answer to this is yes, there are differences between the two through aspects such as the tattoo needle, the type of ink used, their overall purpose, and the technique of insertion from the needle. You can read our blog on the differences between SMP and a regular tattoo, for a comprehensive answer.

How Do I Prepare For Each SMP Treatment Session?

Although the sessions are relatively stress-free, there are a few key things you can do to prepare yourself for each of the SMP sessions you may need for your individual treatment plan: 
1. Shower and wash your scalp before the session, as you won’t be able to wet your scalp for a few days after your treatment. 

2. Depending on the oiliness of your scalp and skin, it might be best to moisturise your scalp 7 days before your initial SMP session. 

3. Do not drink alcohol or consume any other drugs in the 48 hours leading up to your treatments. 

What Are The Risks Or Potential Complications Of SMP Treatment? 

One of the key benefits of scalp micropigmentation is that as a non-surgical hair loss treatment, there are very few risks associated with the procedure. The following risks and potential complications are important items to keep in mind, particularly when searching for an experienced and professional SMP artist: 

  • When applied incorrectly, the end results can look quite unnatural or uneven on the scalp. 
  • Skin infection or irritation due to unsterilised equipment or unsanitary working environment. 
  • Some people may be at risk of an allergic reaction to the specialised SMP pigments applied to the scalp.
  • If you are someone who is prone to keloid scars, it’s advised that you should not receive scalp micropigmentation treatment. 

Once again, researching a licensed and professional SMP artist who operates out of a health department approved clinic is essential for a smooth and sanitary SMP process. 

Is There A Long Recovery Process For SMP? 

The great benefit of being a non-surgical procedure, is that the recovery from SMP is generally quick and straightforward. Most people can return to their normal activities almost immediately. However, there are a few important guidelines to follow:

  • Avoid intense exercise or activities that cause heavy sweating for the first 48 hours after treatment.
  • Keep your scalp out of direct sunlight for the first few days, and consider wearing a hat or other protective covering.
  • To ensure the best long-term results, protect your scalp from sun exposure by applying SPF 50 sunscreen when outdoors.
  • After your final treatment session, avoid swimming, steam rooms, and saunas for at least a month.

If you have any other questions in relation to aftercare for SMP, please get in touch with the team at Foli Sim.
