Scalp Micro-Pigmentation


At Tanya Beauty Care, we understand the importance of a full head of healthy hair to improve your appearance and boost your confidence. If you struggle with hair loss, have thin hair, or have a receding hairline/part, our scalp artists can help you achieve your desired fuller look.

Using scalp micro-pigmentation, we can transform your thinning hair for a natural look without the need for wigs or hair replacement treatments.

These semi-permanent techniques can fill in bald spots and thinning or add volume for immediate results. We have helped both men and women see stunning transformations lasting from 6 months to 6 years, depending on individual skin types, health conditions, and daily activities.

About Scalp Micro-Pigmentation

What is scalp micropigmentation?

Thinning hair around your temples? Bald spots? Reclaim your confidence and thicker looking hair with scalp micropigmentation

Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP) is a highly precise process where pigment is applied to the scalp in a way that mimics the natural hair follicles. The result? The realistic appearance of a close-shaven or natural-looking head of hair. SMP is ideal for filling bald spots and areas of thinning, delivering immediate and visible results.

The results of your Scalp MicroPigmentation treatment will last between 2 to 6 years. We recommend returning for maintenance touch-ups every 18 to 36 months.

How Does Scalp Micro-Pigmentation Work?

Your scalp tattoo specialist will work with you to determine which approach is most suited for your hairstyle. This treatment is suitable for men and women who want to have the appearance of a fuller head of hair. Your scalp specialist will custom blend a colour to match your skin tone and hair colour. The process is relatively pain-free; however, a numbing solution can be applied to keep you comfortable if required. Depending on the area of the scalp, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 4 hours per session.

You are ready to return to your regular activities immediately following a treatment, and you can wash the area with a wet cloth. You can also sleep comfortably and wear a hat. Your new look will last from 2 to 6 years, and touch-ups are recommended every 18 to 24 months to maintain your look.

FAQs on Scalp Micropigmentation

What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a cosmetic procedure where we use tiny, precise dots of pigment to replicate the look of hair follicles on your scalp. 

It’s perfect for anyone noticing their hair isn’t as full as it used to be, dealing with a receding hairline, or wanting to cover bald spots or scars. This procedure isn’t just about adding to your hair’s appearance—it’s about enhancing how you feel every day. It’s a subtle but impactful way to boost your confidence, making you feel better about your hairline and overall look.

How Long Does Scalp Micropigmentation Last?

Scalp Micropigmentation offers a semi-permanent solution to hair loss, with results lasting between 4 to 6 years. The longevity of SMP largely depends on how well you follow the recommended aftercare and your lifestyle.

We advise a touch-up session every 2 to 3 years to refresh the pigment and address any fading. This helps your SMP to stay looking sharp and natural for years to come. The initial aftercare is very important; keeping the scalp dry and avoiding scratching or picking at the treated area can prevent infection and ensure the pigment settles correctly.

How Much is Scalp Micropigmentation?

The cost of SMP varies based on the extent of the area being treated and the specific needs of your scalp. At our clinic, prices range from $500 to $7000, reflecting the personalised approach we take to each treatment. We encourage sending us a photo for a more precise quote, ensuring we tailor the treatment to your exact requirements.

How Does Scalp Micropigmentation Work?

We use a fine needle to apply natural-looking dots of pigment directly onto the scalp. These dots mimic the appearance of hair follicles, creating the illusion of a fuller head of hair or a more defined hairline. We carefully select a pigment that complements your existing hair and skin tone to ensure the results look natural.

Before we start, we apply a numbing solution to the scalp to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible. Our priority is to make the experience pain-free and to ensure you’re completely at ease from start to finish. The goal is to achieve a look that enhances your natural features and gives you the appearance of a fuller, more defined head of hair in the most natural way possible.

How Long Does Scalp Micropigmentation Take?

The complete SMP treatment usually requires 2 to 3 sessions, each lasting about 2 to 3 hours, spread out over a few weeks. This staggered approach allows us to layer the pigment for a more natural look, gives your scalp time to heal properly between sessions, and lets us make adjustments for the perfect finish.
