Since SMP procedures are applying high quality pigments in natural progression to your hairline having a healthy and ready scalp can help improve the overall results of the process. The pigments are applied into the dermis layer of the skin (about the thickness of a dime deep) and typically generates minimal discomfort. Most people would rate the pain as a 2-4 on a scale to 10.  

Before your SMP session you should be well rested, eat a healthy meal, keep hydrated, and avoid foods or activities that would raise your blood pressure like working out, spicy food, or caffeine.

The SMP artist may apply vaseline to help smooth and manage the scalp if it appears dry or stubborn.   See pre care for additional tips on what to do before a session. 


Your personal scalp micropigmentation journey will vary based on your natural hair line and density and how advanced your hair loss is.  Most clients typically start to consider hair treatments as they approach a level 2 or 2a on the Norwood Scale for hair loss.  Clients should expect to pay $1500 –  $5500 for traditional SMP with the price increasing as they move into more advanced hair loss.  The average client pays around $3000 for the total scalp micropigmentation process.  

If you need scar concealment or part density increase you would expect to pay between $800 – $2000 depending on severity.  

To make sure the procedure is a good fit for your unique situation we offer a complimentary initial consultation to review your hair issues and hopefully present a workable solution.
