Scalp Micropigmentation replicates hair follicles with a cosmetic tattoo technique to treat baldness, alopecia and scars. After your treatment these areas are hidden either by a new hairline that gives the illusion of hair follicles or a an illusion of a full head of hair. The effect – your head looks like a ‘shaveed’ or ‘buzzed’ hairstyle, a look that will never go out of fashion or a full head of hair depending on your individual treatment. It is non-surgical treatment, immediate, scar free and uses no drugs. It provides instant results!

Scalp micropigmentation is labor intensive and requires multiple sessions to achieve a realistic well-blended outcome.
Scalp Micropigmentation, Hair Tattoo or Scalp Tattoo, or Cosmetic Hairline Restoration is an art form, and depending on the type of baldness or hair loss, and the amount of work or hours needed to get the results the client is wanting, this will determine the exact price/cost of the treatment. Each client has a somewhat unique balding/thinning pattern and the cost is calculated based on the number of sessions and time per session that will be required. This chart is an estimate:
Scalp micropigmentation for women is labor intensive (as well as male hair density cases) and requires multiple sessions to achieve a realistic well-blended outcome.
International Hairlines currently uses the Ludwig Scale of Female Baldness as a guide to determine the cost of each treatment. Each client is usually in different stages of balding or thinning hair, and thus the price can increase or decrease depending on the type of baldness or hair loss the client is experiencing.

Scar camouflaging in SMP requires more time per square inch than any other form of micropigmentation and thus requires a certain level of skill and experience to effectively conceal scars on the scalp.
If you’ve had a hair transplant (FUT/FUE) and are unhappy with the visibility of your surgical scar, we can help conceal it with Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP).
Scalp Micropigmentation Scar Camouflage techniques are used to flatten a scar and/or diminish the appearance of the scar. Whether you’ve received a scar from an injury, surgery or hair transplant procedure, we have the techniques available to reduce the size
and shape of the scar and/or camouflage the scar into the hairline to reduce the appearance of the scar up to 100%.
In cases of hair transplants, the FUT/FUE scar cover with SMP can only be done at least 6 months after the surgery to ensure that the wounds are completely healed internally and externally.

We schedule 2-3 treatment sessions in advance, depending on your individual requirements. Each session lasts on average about 2-4 hours and is scheduled a minimum of 10 days apart. The third session can sometimes be optional depending on the client and the desired result. As always, we will do our best to work around your availability. Your PMU artist will fully customize your treatment, with input on hairline design, style preferences, and final goals. When you leave our studio after your first session, you will see an immediate difference and a full look appearing. You will notice some fading after the first treatment, which is completely normal. We need the second and third session to complete the look of a full buzz cut. We will provide you with optimal aftercare guidelines you’ll need to follow until we see you again for your second session about 10-14 days later.
During 2nd & 3rd session we dramatically increase your replicated hair density to create the appearance of fullness and eradicate any sign of hair loss. We spend a lot of time blending your pigmented areas into your real hair for a perfectly seamless finish. We can make minor adjustments to the hairline in this session as well.
Depending on your progress, we will do one of the following:
Declare your treatment complete
If a third session is required, this is usually because your pigment retention rate has varied and we still need to fill in some areas of the head. This is common and is remedied during your third (and usually final) session. This is also an opportunity to make tweaks or hairline adjustments.
You must wait 4 weeks until your next session. It may take multiple sessions to achieve the final look.

Unless a note from your doctor declares you completely unable to receive the procedure.
