What is scalp micropigmentation

Whether you’re affected by pattern baldness, scalp scarring or just patchy, thinning hair, Scalp Micropigmentation is an affordable, immediate and effective hair loss solution.

What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) creates the appearance of a full head of hair by carefully and meticulously placing microdots of pigment amongst existing hair, replicating natural hair follicles.

When delivered by a skilled practitioner, SMP can restore receded hairlines, thicken remaining hair, camouflage hair transplant scars and create the look of close-cropped hair.

How can we help?

SMP is non-invasive, suitable for men and women, and, unlike other hair loss treatments, it’s affordable. But the best part is this procedure gives you immediate results with no downtime!

Medical Hair Restoration Australia (MHRA) uses only the highest standard medical grade pigment, along with the latest state of the art equipment.

Procedures are carried out in a clean, sterile clinic by highly trained practitioners, so you can be assured of safety and quality.

How is SMP applied?

During a procedure, specialised equipment, with pigment designed specifically for Scalp Micropigmentation is used to meticulously apply microdots to your scalp to give the appearance of hair follicles.

Will the colour look natural?

Yes. The practitioner will work with you to design and blend a shade of pigment that is natural in appearance and blends with your remaining hair and skin tone.

Does the colour fade with time?

Yes. We use only medical-grade pigments, designed specifically for Scalp Micropigmentation. With time and sun exposure the pigment can lighten and it may be necessary to have a touch-up treatment to bring the appearance back to its optimal best.

Following your procedure, it is important to take care of the treated area. We recommend using a good quality sun block and a hat. This will help to ensure your SMP stays looking as it was originally intended, and help protect you from harmful UV rays.

Can you create a natural looking hairline?

Yes, we can. The practitioner will carry out a comprehensive consultation with you prior to the procedure to understand what is important to you and what you are hoping to achieve.

Together with your technician you can design and create a hairline that suits you as an individual. This is a very important part of the process and we always recommend a natural-looking hairline over a ‘fashionable’ style.

How long does a procedure take?

In most cases, 2-3 sessions are required to achieve the desired look. The first two sessions are ‘building’ the density and the third session completes the ‘feathering’ and ‘definition’ aspect of the procedure. We recommend 10-14 days between sessions to allow for adequate healing.

Is there a guarantee?

Yes. We stand behind all our procedures with a 12-month satisfaction guarantee. If your procedure does not meet your expectations after the third session, then we will complete a fourth or even a fifth session absolutely free of charge.

What if I lose more hair in time?

One of the advantages with Scalp Micropigmentation is you can increase the coverage should you experience further hair loss or find it just needs to be thicker in areas.

Sometimes people will get SMP to add density to thinning areas and then later decide to go for a complete all-over ‘buzz cut’ look. SMP is very versatile.

Does it hurt?

Some points on the scalp may be more sensitive than others. For example, you may feel the treatment more in the temple areas than the crown area. Most clients remark they feel little to no real discomfort during the entire procedure.

Do you have payment options?

MHRA offers 6 months interest-free finance through our partners Zip Money. For more information, including terms and conditions, call or email us and one of our friendly team members will be happy to answer your questions.

How much does it cost?

The cost will depend on the thinning / balding pattern, the size of the area to be covered and if any scars are present.
