Scalp Micropigmentation Glasgow

Our Glasgow, Scotland facility offers scalp micro-pigmentation as a revolutionary hair loss therapy that can completely alter the way you look. Serving both men and women, we provide a technique that produces results comparable to those of a full hair transplant but is far more affordable and lasts for up to 5 years.
At the Scalp Hub Hair Restoration Centre, Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a non-surgical option for people who are dealing with pattern baldness, thinning hair, and receding hairlines. Using specialised technology, scalp micropigmentation applies pigments to the scalp. Our SMP experts can reproduce a bigger, thicker-looking head of hair using these pigments because they are created to look just like your real hair follicles! Glasgow residents who undergo scalp micropigmentation can alter the appearance of their hairlines without invasive procedures, ugly wounds, or protracted recovery periods. The Scalp Hub Hair Restoration Centre’s scalp micropigmentation experts can tailor SMP treatments to your procedure’s objectives.

Scalp Micro Pigmentation in Glasgow: How Does It Work?

By pigmenting your scalp, Scalp micropigmentation imitates the appearance of your own hair follicles. Extreme precision and accuracy are possible with the SMP device while transferring pigments. Thousands of follicles can be replicated by your scalp micropigmentation expert to fill in bald spots and improve your hairline.


Glasgow clients frequently ask questions

How Can SMP Enhance The Look Of My Hairline?

Over time, hair thinning can result from male and female pattern baldness. Many men experience hair loss at the crown, temples, and top of the hairline. Women typically experience thinning of the scalp’s top and crown. Bald areas start to stand up more as hair thinning, which might take away from your natural hairline. Using the SMP equipment, your scalp micropigmentation expert will meticulously cover up any bald spots or follicular gaps.
Using follicular replication therapy, Scalp Hub treats Glasgow patients for the following conditions:
  • Increase thickness and density where hair is thinning.
  • To make widow’s peak less noticeable
  • Make your hair look fuller and more symmetrical.
  • Create close-cropped hairstyles
  • Recover a thinning hairline
  • Conceal scarring from previous hair transplants
Every hairline is unique, and your SMP treatment can be tailored to meet your natural hairline’s form and contour as closely as possible. Our Glasgow hair specialists can employ scalp micropigmentation to blend into your natural hair and match the colour of your natural hair, giving you the appearance of a fuller head of shaven or short-cropped hair.
Depending on your preferences, you can create straighter or curvier hairlines. To best achieve your desired outcomes, our SMP specialists in Glasgow will collaborate with you to develop a follicular replication treatment plan.


What should I expect from my scalp micropigmentation procedure?

In Scalp micropigmentation (SMP), patients do not require extensive pre-operative preparations because it is a non-surgical method of hair replacement. Your scalp micropigmentation procedure doesn’t require general anaesthesia. The majority of our Glasgow consumers have stated that it hurts much less than having a tattoo.
Generally, 2-4 treatments are needed to complete scalp micropigmentation. To build the foundation for your new look, a lighter shade of pigmentation is implanted during your initial treatment. Following scalp micropigmentation treatments, your hairline will be further filled in and your scalp will be given deeper tones, giving the appearance of having more thickness.


What Should I Expect After a Scalp Micropigmentation Treatment?

Following their follicular replication procedure, Glasgow patients undergoing scalp micropigmentation can immediately return to their regular activities. You might have a little bit of scalp redness, but this usually goes away within a few days. To ensure the fastest healing, patients who have had their scalps micropigmented are advised to refrain from sweating as well as rinsing, scrubbing, or shaving for about a week.
Your hairline can be improved with SMP treatment, and the results last for years. To keep the results of your scalp micropigmentation, further, touch-ups are needed.


Can scalp micropigmentation treat alopecia?

Of course. Visit our Alopecia blog for additional information. But in essence, we can provide Glasgow-based alopecia patients with a remedy that has no drawbacks or waiting periods. SMP achieves its goal of giving a hairless scalp the look of a close buzz cut or shaved head. We cannot guarantee that your hair will grow back. We can ensure that you have a stylish appearance that communicates to the world that this was your decision and that this is how you want to be seen.


Can my hair transplant scar be concealed by scalp micropigmentation?

Yes, there is a significant advantage to Scalp micropigmentation for hair transplant scars. The placement of tattooed follicles on and around the treatment area decreases the visibility of the scalp. Since the tattooed colour density beneath so well hides the scar, it is not usually necessary for the client to cut or shave their head. However, the procedure still significantly reduces the appearance of scars in patients who have lost all of their hair.


How much does micropigmentation of the scalp cost?

This is a very reasonable concern, so we’ve developed a simple, straightforward price. Send us some images via email if you need help confirming pricing, and we will reply with the information. [email protected]

 What is Scalp micropigmentation?

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a sort of hair restoration procedure for those whose hair has thinned or fallen out. By placing tiny deposits of pigment on the scalp, the treatment simulates hair follicles for both male and female clients, providing the impression of either a bald look or a fuller head of hair.
To achieve the highest level of authenticity, Scalp Hub only uses natural vegan pigments in a range of colours. Over the course of your two or three therapy sessions, we are committed to providing a long-term remedy.
Hair tattoo restoration can help you if you are suffering from alopecia, thinning hair, scar camouflage, or baldness. We choose the right pigment by diluting it to match hair colour, skin tone, or complexion. In place of other choices like medicine, hair transplants, hair replacement systems, or thickening hair fibres, scalp micropigmentation is a fantastic alternative. Scalp micropigmentation is a long-term hair loss solution that is dependable, cost-effective, and requires no ongoing maintenance.
You must choose what is best for you as a long-term solution. It is important to keep in mind that, over the past three years, scalp micropigmentation has experienced the quickest growth of any hair remedy in the UK and the US.

Scalp Micropigmentation FAQ's

The amount of time needed for an scalp micropigmentation treatment varies but the typical first session lasts from three to five hours, while the further sessions usually take less time as the correct blend of density and darkness is achieved on the scalp.

Scalp micropigmentation – or SMP as it is also known –  treatments are usually split over 3 separate sessions, although the actual time can vary depending on the extent of your hair loss, the style you require, and other factors.

During your treatments, micro needles are used to layer pigment dots on your scalp in a process that resembles getting a tattoo. But scalp micropigmentation is a highly-technical, specialized process performed by our trained technicians. The tiny “dots” of pigment, placed in the dermal layer of skin, create the illusion of a full head of shaved hair, similar to multiple tiny tattoos. 

Before your first scalp micropigmentation treatment, at a consultation, you will meet with one of our team who to discuss your requirements, including the shape of your hairline, its positioning, as well as the density and shade of your pigmentation. our Skulltec technicians have been through the process themselves and will be able to give you honest insight into the process and it’s benefits. 

During the first session, a tiny wound is created in the skin when each dot is applied. A scab heals over the wound and eventually falls away, taking some of the implanted pigment with it. Furthermore, the immune system attacks the pigments, causing them to shrink. This gradual “fading” of the dots varies from person to person which means you would need multiple sessions to get the required pigment shade.

A patient’s treatment session with Skulltec includes the application of different shades of pigmentation. Different shades are needed to enable some pigment deposits to stand out from among the rest. Lighter pigments are usually applied during the first session, while the next few sessions introduce the applications of darker shades.

The first experiments with scalp micropigmentation were in the 1970s, but scalp micropigmentation wasn’t truly developed until 2002. The first general treatment offered to the public took place in 2006. 

While most patients experience mild discomfort during the procedure – especially in its earlier stages –  much like getting a tattoo, the discomfort usually becomes more tolerable as the session progresses. Some areas of the scalp have more, denser nerve endings than others, but the majority of patients focus on the benefits of the treatment rather than any discomfort they may experience. No pain no gain, as the saying goes. However, as your Skulltec technician will tell you, the pain is minimal, so don’t worry. 

The bottom line, however, is that scalp micropigmentation hurts less than having a regular tattoo and a lot less than getting a hair transplant. Anaesthetics are usually available to numb the scalp, although lots of men and women choose to go without them.

There is no down time or recovery period following scalp micropigmentation treatment, although slight redness on the skin from each tattoo session may last between 24-48 hours. Many patients return to work the next day and the usual time-table between treatments is seven day.

scalp micropigmentation has few, if any, side effects. However, it is worth noting that your scalp will be a little red after each application, and the dots will be darker and larger as your skin begins to heal. But, again, the tiny scabs that form over each dot will heal and fall off, taking some of the pigment with them.

No, scalp micropigmentation is effective in treating hair loss in both men and women. Like men, women can suffer from balding as they lose hair due to events such as childbirth, surgery, stress, and more, and SMP for women is a rapidly-growing service. At Skulltec, we work with just as many women as we do men. 

There is a difference between scalp micropigmentation for men and women, however. While a man receives treatments to replicate shaven hair follicles, the primary goal of treatment for women is to decrease the contrast between the scalp and hair. And while women usually lose hair evenly across their entire scalp, it’s highly unlikely that they’ll go completely bald. Moreover, a woman’s frontal hairline remains intact.

It’s not necessary for women to shave their heads before SMP treatments. Instead, the technician applies pigmentation by parting the hair section by section. The result – a “shaded” scalp – makes it harder to see the difference in colour between the hair and scalp, which creates the appearance of thicker hair.

Note: scalp micropigmentation often works best for women with dark or brunette hair. It’s usually not recommended for blonde women.

In the first few days after your scalp micropigmentation treatment, you should avoid activities that cause sweating of the scalp, as well as shampooing or washing your head. By day four, most men can shave with a foil shaver but need to be careful to not run it over any parts of the scalp in which scabs have not yet fallen off. Only by day 10 should you shave with a razor blade.

In most cases, an scalp micropigmentation treatment lasts for four to six years before the patient needs to have another treatment done because of fading of the pigments.

The quality and realism of your scalp micropigmentation may vary from one company to another. The skill and experience of your practitioner are also important. 

Choosing a reputable company such as Skulltec ensures that your results are excellent.
