SMP for Women – Manchester

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves the application of tiny, tattoo-like dots to the scalp to create the illusion of a fuller head of hair. While SMP is often associated with men who have male pattern baldness, it can also work for women who are experiencing hair thinning or have specific hair loss conditions. Here’s how scalp micropigmentation can work for women:


Assessing Suitability

SMP is most effective for women with certain types of hair loss, such as diffuse thinning, female pattern hair loss, or scarring alopecia.


The first step is to consult with our trained SMP technician. They will assess your scalp and hair loss condition to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. During this consultation, you can discuss your expectations, concerns, and desired results.

Customized Treatment Plan

If you decide to proceed with SMP, our technician will create a customised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This includes choosing the appropriate pigment colour, hairline design (if needed), and density of pigmentation to achieve a natural and flattering look.

Pigmentation Procedure

SMP is performed using a specialised tattoo machine that deposits pigments into the scalp’s uppermost layers. Our technician will carefully replicate the look of individual hair follicles, creating the illusion of a full head of hair. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve the desired result.


After each SMP session, you’ll need to follow proper aftercare instructions to ensure the best results. This may include avoiding excessive sun exposure, refraining from swimming or saunas for a certain period, and using recommended topical products to promote healing.


SMP is considered a semi-permanent solution, and the pigment may fade over time. To maintain the appearance, touch-up sessions may be needed every few years, depending on your individual circumstances.

Natural Appearance

Our skilled SMP technician will ensure that the pigmentation matches your natural hair colour and skin tone, creating a seamless and realistic look.

Confidence Boost

For many women, SMP can provide a significant confidence boost by improving the appearance of thinning hair or bald patches. It can also be used to camouflage scars or areas with no hair growth.

It’s essential to choose a qualified and experienced SMP practitioner like us, your new look is one of the most important elements of having Scalp Micropigmentation and we are dedicated to getting it right.  SMP is a long-lasting solution, but it may require touch-up sessions every few years to maintain its appearance, as the pigmentation can fade over time.
