smp hair loss solutions
Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-invasive treatment that uses detailed micro-needles to deposit pigment into the scalp. The result creates the appearance of tiny hair follicles that help thicken and restore the look of fuller hair. When administered by a trained and licensed specialist, the Scalp
Micropigmentation treatment can restore receded hairlines, thicken remaining hair, camouflage transplant scarring, and create the look of close-cropped hair. Scalp Micropigmentation is also effective for those suffering from minor hair thinning or recession.

Will my Scalp Tattoo be detectable?
Scalp micropigmentation has become such an effective hair loss solution because of its consistently natural and undetectable results. At Elegance Beauty we pride ourself on the ability to seamlessly replicate each individual hair follicle to create a perfect match for each client.
How many treatments should I expect?
Scalp micropigmentation should never be considered a one treatment process. Most clients can expect between 2-4 sessions to complete their treatment depending on the extent of hair loss or scarring. These treatments are usually spaced about 10-20 days apart.
How long do the results last?
After completion of your treatment (2-4 sessions) a client should expect the strength of the color to last for many years. Over a longer term, a client will very gradually begin to notice slight lightening (not discolor) of the treatment. When this occurs they can undergo a brief “touch up” session to restore any fading and secure many more years of their style.
Will my Scalp Tattoo change color like tattoos?
No. Scalp micropigmentation is a form of permanent cosmetics, but unlike tattooing or permanent makeup, our specialised pigment is designed to fall within the same color spectrum of short cut hair. The pigment contains no additional colorants or additives and will only lighten, not discolor over an extended time.
Scalp micropigmentation also utilizes different equipment than traditional tattooing, ensuring the needle and machine are designed specifically for micropigmentation of the scalp.
Do I need to take time off for my hair loss treatment ?
Scalp micropigmentation is non-invasive and requires no down time. In most cases, you will not need to take any extended time away from work, school, or other functions. After treatment 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 within a couple days. Clients are also allowed to wear hats or headwear should they feel the need.
I see many Scalp Micropigmentation providers on the internet, how do I choose the right one?
The growth of scalp micropigmentation (hairline tattoos, scalp tattoos) has been tremendous over the last few years. This means a lot more clinics, but also means prospective patients need to do their research! Look for clinics and technicians that have been operating for several years, have a vast and dynamic portfolio of results, and help answer any questions you have. It is always a good idea to schedule an in-person consultation if you are unsure, in order to eliminate those providers you just don’t feel comfortable with.
How do I choose a hairline for my Scalp Micropigmentation Treatment?
If you are unsure of what style or type of hairline will work for you, your treatment specialist will be there to help. With artistic experience on how to fit a hairline to head shape and age, your specialist can help recommend what’s best. Over the course of your sessions you can also tweak and adjust the hairline for a perfect result.
If I have hair left, can I leave it long?
Depending upon the pattern and extent of the thinning hair, some clients are able to maintain a longer length of hair. Scalp pigmentation can help thicken areas so that less of the scalp is seen showing through. However, if there is a strong pattern of hair loss or just not a lot of hair density left, the client is recommended to crop it shorter.
How will I look immediately afterwards?
Brows procedures are barely noticeable, usually only appearing slightly darker. Eyes may swell a little, but this generally only lasts for a day. Lips will swell and may remain swollen and chapped in appearance for several days.
Can Scalp Micropigmentation camouflage my transplant scar?
Yes! By replicating tiny hair follicles inside the scarring and blending the color around the scarring area, transplant and surgical scars can see massive improvement in concealment.
Does the procedure hurt?
For most of our clients, the pain minimal and it’s consistently less painful than traditional tattoos. After your session, you won’t experience any further discomfort.
Can I wear a hat after my Scalp Micropigmentation treatment?
Yes. The scalp may be a bit reddish for 2-3 days post session, so we recommend wearing a hat after treatment if you wish to conceal the redness.
Will Scalp Micropigmentation work with gray hair?
Yes, those with gray hair can still benefit from the scalp micropigmentation procedure. First, most clients are recommended to cut their hair to a short buzzed length. When this is done, gray hair does not appear as gray because the hair root itself is darker. Hair only shows gray as it gets longer. Second, we use a gray-scale pigment that can be adjusted in shade to blend with lighter hair tones. We simply create a lighter dilution for blending into the existing gray hairs.

If I am lighter skin tone will this treatment still look good?
Yes! We are able to match the shade of our pigment to a wide range of skin tones. Wether you are caucasian, black, hispanic, asian, or pacific islander scalp micropigmentation can work for you.
What equipment is used for a Scalp Micropigmentation procedure?
The equipment used for a scalp treatment is considered micropigmentation or “permanent cosmetic” equipment. There are many different brands and designs and equipment includes a digital power source, a hand-piece, and a disposable micro needles for the insertion of pigment. Most technicians of Scalp Micropigmentation use different equipment than standard tattoo artists to ensure the deposits are delicately placed at the appropriate depth in the skin.
Can I still use Propecia and/or Rogaine after my treatment?
Clients can continue using Propecia during and after their scalp pigmentation procedure. Rogaine (topical minoxidil) should be suspended during the course of treatment and for 30 days post your final session. This is to ensure the proper healing and settling of pigment without interference of the chemicals found in Rogaine foam.
Can Scalp Tattooing help with scaring?
Yes. We use our specialized scalp micropigmentation technique to deposit color matched pigment into the scar to reduce visibility.
