Scalp Micro Tattoo (SMT) also known as Scalp Micro Pigment (SMP) is a permanent cosmetic ‘tattoo’ that mimics the very short hairs of a closely shaved scalp. It is a new and innovative technique that offers an alternative styling option for men who do not want or are not candidates for hair transplant surgery.

With the entire head shaved, Scalp Micro Tattoo is a look that is a bold statement of confidence. It looks natural even under close scrutiny. It creates the appearance of a close shave or a short buzz cut over the entire scalp and we expertly create a natural looking hair line, something that we have been doing with hair transplants for two decades. It is a permanent ‘concealer’ medically tattooed on the scalp with special pigments and an alternative to the topical daily applications of powders, fibers and other cosmetic concealers (such as Toppik or DermMatch). SMP eliminates the hassle of frequent applications, messy transfer of product onto clothing, sheets or pillow cases and the anxiety of being in close contact with people.

SMT can be used for a variety of scalp conditions that include: genetic androgenic alopecia (AGA) otherwise known as male pattern balding (MPB), scarring alopecias from a variety of autoimmune diseases of the scalp (e.g. alopecia areata, alopecia totalis), and scarring from neurosurgical procedures or burns.  It is also used to manage the unnatural scar that is associated with hair transplant procedures, such as the FUE scars and strip scars. This is a non-surgical procedure carried out by experienced hair restoration surgeons and qualified staff. We offer the option to have the procedure performed under local anesthesia.
