Scalp Micro-pigmentation

Non-invasive hair loss treatment at Hair Transplants Melbourne

Scalp micro-pigmentation (SMP) is a versatile treatment that uses very thin needles to distribute specks of pigmentation over the scalp. Sometimes called a hair tattoo, the pigment creates the appearance of denser hair follicles.

SMP is generally designed for people who wish to create the appearance of more follicles on the head. The treatment distributes dots of pigment across the scalp in order to create the appearance of a shaved head or “buzz cut.” It can also create the illusion of greater hair density for people with longer hair that is thinning.

Who is it for?

Scalp micro-pigmentation is generally suitable for people who have a receding hairline, baldness, or thinning on the scalp. This can include men who keep their hair length short, close to the scalp. It can also include men or women who have areas of thinning hair, as the pigment is visible beneath the existing hair strands, creating the illusion of more abundant follicles.

By carefully administering the micro-pigmentation, we can reduce the appearance of baldness and create a look of even hair follicle distribution. The results can depend on the specifics of the treatment and your desired outcomes, which means it is best to consult with a professional before seeking treatment.

The benefits of SMP

SMP allows us to create the appearance of a hairline without surgery or other invasive methods. Although it won’t change your natural hair growth, it can reduce the appearance of balding or thinning hair.


As there is no need for incisions or stitches. This also means there is less pain than other hair restoration methods, and no downtime is required.


Unlike other procedures, patients will typically be able to see the pigment straight away after the treatment.


Suitable for men and women with varying hair lengths and degrees of hair loss. It can also be tailored to your skin tone, hair loss pattern, and hair colour.

Low maintenance

Does not require changes to lifestyle or haircare routine to maintain the results. It is a long-lasting treatment but may require some occasional touch-ups.
