what to expect?

The Micro-PIgmentation Process

You will be invited for an initial consultation where we will discuss the SMP procedure, age-appropriate hairlines, your suitability for the treatment and your expectations.

Each person is different, that’s why we carefully advise which hair line is best suited to your face shape to give the most natural look possible.

The procedure typically takes 3 sessions and will be carried out over a period of approximately 3 months with 2-3 weeks between your 1st and 2nd session, followed by 6 -8 weeks before your final session.

After each session you may experience slight redness if your skin is particularly sensitive immediately after the treatment however in the majority of cases this is subtle and will dissipate within 12 to 24 hours.


When asked “Is SMP painful?” each client’s response is different.  The level of discomfort described by some of our clients varies from mild discomfort and strangely therapeutic to the sting of an angry wasp and will be largely dependent upon the individuals skin sensitivity.  Our specialists will ensure that you are made as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment.


​Over time (usually between 3 and 5 years), your SMP treatment will begin to lighten and the sharpness of the dots will fade. In order to keep the results looking fresh, a top up will be required. An indication of cost can be given during your consultation.


We appreciate that every client’s needs are different, therefore pricing will be discussed during the consultation. An indication can be based around the Norwood scale for hair-loss.
