Scalp Micropigmentation
Are you holding on to your hair for dear life?  We have a solution!

Want to restore receded hairlines, thicken the look of remaining hair, camouflage transplant scarring, patterned baldness or alopecia and create the look of close-cropped hair?  Scalp Micropigmentation is the only 100% effective answer.

Scalp Micropigmentation uses micro-needles to deposit pigment into the scalp and is completely non-invasive. The end result gives you the appearance of natural hair follicles.  If you have hair, it gives the illusion of fuller hair.  If you shave your hair, it gives the illusion a a buzz cut with no balding.  No one will ever know that it's pigment instead of hair unless you tell them.  Your natural hair follicle and color  is replicated by our nationally certified and licensed artist using state of the art equipment.

Normally 2-4 sessions 2-6 weeks within each other are needed to complete the process and requires very little maintenance.  Touch ups, if needed, are usually required many years later. 

We are proud to say that we are among the first in Louisiana and the Panhandle of Florida to offer scalp micropigmentation (SMP) and couldn't be happier to be able to be a part of impacting lives in such a positive way.  Examples of our work can be found on this page and on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

How does it work?

 

 

 

Schedule Your Complimentary Consultation

If you are unable to come in for a consultation, we can arrange a Face Time consult after photos are sent to us. Our certified scalp micropigmentation practitioner will devise a customized plan best for you whether it's creating a new hairline that you desire or more density in your existing hair.

Book Your Sessions

Book your sessions 10-14 days within each other (not sooner and not after). 

 

​​​​

We suggest booking 3 sessions to ensure that you are able to get your sessions in a timely manner to ensure best results.  If only two sessions are required, we will cancel the 3rd session at the time of that determination.

Your First Session

The first session is used to lay the foundation of the replicated hair follicles. You will notice an immediate difference after your first session.

Touch Up Session/s

The 2nd and 3rd sessions are used to lay additional layers of density to create the appearance of full, short hair, and eliminate any sign of hair loss.  A great deal  lot of time is spent blending into your existing hair for a seamless and natural look. Minor adjustments are made to the hairline in these sessions as well. After your final treatment, you shouldn't need to come back for around 4-6 years.

FAQ

How much does Scalp Micropigmentation cost?

Pricing is based on the level of hair loss, and is evaluated on a case by case basis.  We recommend setting up a free consultation so that we can evaluate your case and provide a personalized price quote based on your level of hair loss.

Is it obvious that it's micropigmentation instead of real hair?

SMP is the most effective solution to concealing hair loss because of the seamlessly and naturally placed replication of hair follicles.  Immediately following the procedure, the follicle replicas may be slightly darker; however, this subsides soon afterwards and is completely undetectable. 

How many treatments should I expect?

SMP should never be done in one session.  You can expect 2-4 sessions 10-20 days apart.

How long does SMP last?

After completing the sessions, a client can expect a slight fading to a more natural look.  SMP should last many years.  This varies between individuals.  Over time, a client may notice fading (not discoloration).  When this happens, a client can then undergo a touch up to maintain the look.

Does the ink turn colors?

Unlike tattoo ink, the pigment we use is designed to fall within the same color spectrum of short cut hair and will lighten over an extended time.

What happens as I age and chose not to do a touch up?

The ink will turn lighter, eventually disappearing altogether. 

How long does SMP take to do?

You can expect each session to last between 2-4 hours depending on the degree of hair loss.

How long before I can return to work?

SMP requires no down time.  It is common to notice slight redness on the scalp for 2-3 days post session. This redness subsides quickly, and most clients return to work either right away or soon afterwards. Hats can be worn if desired.

Can I keep my hair longer than a buzz cut?

Some clients are able to keep longer hair depending on the pattern of hair loss.  SMP can help give the look of thicker hair in balding areas so that the scalp cannot be seen.  However, if there is a strong balding pattern, it is recommended to keep a short buzz cut.

Will SMP work with gray hair?

Yes.  The hair root itself is darker.  It only appears gray as it gets longer.  When this is done, gray hair will appear not as gray because the root is darker.  We use gray scaled pigment; therefore, pigment can be lightened to blend with lighter hair tones.  Pigment is diluted to match the client's natural hair color.

Can SMP conceal transplant scars or other scars?

Yes, by blending follicle replications inside and around the scar, SMP is able to conceal scars.

Will SMP work on any skin tone?

Yes, we are able to match our pigment to a wide variation of tones.

Is SMP for longer hair?

Yes, SMP can create density with longer hair concealing the scalp showing through the hair.

Will SMP affect the growth of my existing hair?

No, SMP will not affect any hair growth at all.  If your hair is still growing, it will continue to grow as it naturally would.

How long before I can sweat after the procedure?

No sweating or intense exercise 4-5 days post procedure.

Is SMP painful?

There is minimal discomfort with SMP and is less intense than a traditional tattoo.  There is no discomfort after the procedure.  To minimize discomfort, some clients begin taking an over the counter pain reliever 24 hours before the procedure every 4-6 hours as directed.

How long before I can wash my hair after SMP?

You cannot use any friction on the scalp for 10 days after the treatment.  If you have longer hair, a mild shampoo is recommended if needed avoiding any friction on the scalp.
