Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is an innovative solution that can create the illusion of a fuller head of hair. Toronto FACE aestheticians apply a formula of pigment, or ink to your scalp with micro-fine needles to create hundreds of small impressions. These impressions can add definition to your hairline and create a thicker look to your hair.

The process is similar to a tattoo, but the SMP technique utilizes tiny needs and specially formulated pigments. Scalp micropigmentation creates the look of natural hair, blending with your existing hair and skin tone.

How Does it Work?

The treatment is performed using an electric tattoo device that creates tiny, layered dots in various shades of black to produce a shadow effect on your scalp. It is not a tattoo. Scalp micropigmentation’s application process, custom pigments, and mapping are extremely specialized. Micro-needles are used to deposit pigment, or ink directly into your scalp. Your skilled professional will work to ensure the dots blend in and create a natural look with depth and definition.

Scalp Micropigmentation

Who is a Candidate?

Scalp micropigmentation may be an appropriate treatment for many men and women currently going through hair loss or have experienced hair loss in the past. Scalp micropigmentation is a good option for those with receding hairlines, balding around the crown, or hair loss due to an illness or medical treatment. If you have had other failed attempts to address hair loss, talk to Dr. Asaria to determine whether scalp micropigmentation could be an answer for you.

What Are the Benefits of Scalp Micropigmentation?

  • Creates the illusion of normal hair growth on the scalp
  • Non-invasive – no lengthy recovery time necessary
  • Affordable – a fraction of the cost of hair transplants
  • Safe – no incisions or chemicals used, so no side effects to worry about
  • Not too time consuming – your finished look can be achieved in just a couple of sessions
  • Little to no maintenance
  • Realistic and natural looking
  • Long-lasting – boosts confidence for years
  • Hides imperfections – a great way to mask any scarring from past surgeries or injuries

Preparing For Scalp Micropigmentation

There’s not too much to be done to prepare for your scalp micropigmentation, other than showering before each treatment. Once you’ve completed your session, you will not be able to get the area wet for four days.

Recovery After Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp micropigmentation is a quick and relatively simple procedure. It does not require any downtime. You may experience a bit of redness immediately following your procedure, but it will resolve within 24 hours.

Scalp Micropigmentation FAQ

How Much Does Scalp Pigmentation Cost?

The cost of scalp micropigmentation can vary. Your procedure and what you need will determine the final cost. For someone who may have a receding hairline with a bit of thinning on top could expect to pay around $3,000 for scalp micropigmentation. In the end, it comes down to how much thinning you have, and how long the procedure is expected to take.

Is scalp micropigmentation painful?

Scalp micropigmentation is considered a non-invasive procedure. It is not painful, but Dr. Asaria understands that everyone’s tolerance for pain is different. A topical numbing agent can be applied to your scalp to ensure your comfort.

How long does scalp micropigmentation take?

How long treatment will take depends on your head size and current hair loss. Most patients are in and out with a single appointment. Your procedure could take from five to eight hours – it is that delicate. In certain cases, follow-up treatment might be necessary. Most patients need one to three treatments to create the look they envision.

Dear Patients:

At FACE Toronto we are committed to protecting the safety of our patients, staff, and the general public while maintaining our high standard of quality care. As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have made changes to our patient care practices in accordance with all provincial and Public Health recommendations. Our team has been working diligently on enhancing our safety protocols to protect the well-being of our patients, team members, and families. We would like to highlight how we are providing a safe environment for you and our team:

  • We will be pre-screening all patients that are scheduled to come into our office for any symptoms of COVID-19. We will ask patients to stay home with symptoms of COVD-19, chronic lung disease, severe asthma, serious heart conditions, and uncontrolled type 1 diabetes. A mandatory Covid-19 consent form must be filled out before arrival to the clinic and temperature checks will be administered upon entering the building.
  • We have implemented a policy for the safety and testing of our staff members including daily screening and temperature checks. We will be maintaining physical distancing as much as possible throughout the office for staff and patients.
  • The timing of patient visits has been adjusted in order to limit the number of people in the office at a given time and to allow for enhanced disinfecting and cleaning protocols we have put in place in between patients.
  • We request that patients come on their own to all appointments unless absolutely necessary. We are not servicing any walk-in patients and not allowing visitors or children to accompany any patient.
  • For your safety all of our staff will be wearing masks when interacting with patients in the office and routine hand-washing is required.
  • We request that you wear a mask. If you do not have a mask, a mask will be provided. Hand sanitation stations will be available upon entering and throughout the office.
  • We are pleased to offer virtual visits as an option for non-urgent appointments. The software we have in place provides appropriate safety and privacy for the interaction.
  • We have increased our in-office cleaning. All areas of patient traffic are regularly cleaned throughout the day. All treatment rooms are cleaned between every patient encounter. All chairs and table tops in the waiting room as well as treatment rooms will be wiped down between patients, including counters, keyboards and door handles. Our credit/debit card terminal will be disinfected after each use. We have also enhanced the air filtration quality in our space to provide patients with surgically clean air.
