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.
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 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.
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.
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.

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.
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 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.
