SMP for Alopecia – Manchester

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that can be an effective solution for individuals with Alopecia, a condition characterized by hair loss. SMP can work for Alopecia in several ways:



SMP involves the application of tiny pigment deposits to the scalp, replicating the appearance of hair follicles or stubble. By strategically placing these pigments in the areas affected by Alopecia, it can create the illusion of a fuller head of hair. This is particularly useful for individuals with Alopecia areata or Alopecia totalis, where hair loss can be extensive.

Density Enhancement

For people with Alopecia, especially in the early stages, SMP can be used to add density to areas where hair is thinning but not completely gone. By matching the colour of the pigments to the individual’s natural hair colour, SMP can make the existing hair appear thicker and more substantial.

Scar Concealment

Some forms of Alopecia, such as scarring Alopecia or traction Alopecia, can leave behind visible scars on the scalp. SMP can be used to camouflage these scars by filling them in with pigment, making them less noticeable.

Creating a Defined Hairline

For individuals with receding hairlines due to Alopecia, SMP can help create a more defined and natural-looking hairline. This can improve the overall appearance and boost self-confidence.


Unlike some other hair restoration procedures, SMP is relatively low maintenance. It does not require daily care, such as the application of topical treatments or the use of wigs, making it a convenient option for those with Alopecia.

Immediate Results: SMP typically provides immediate results. After the procedure, the scalp will appear as if it has a freshly shaved head of hair, and this can be especially beneficial for those seeking a quick and effective solution for their hair loss.

It’s important to note that while SMP can be a suitable option for many individuals with Alopecia, it may not be the right choice for everyone. Factors such as the type and severity of Alopecia, skin type, and individual preferences should be considered. Consulting with our qualified SMP technician is crucial to determine if SMP is a suitable solution and to discuss the desired outcome and potential risks.
