We provide a solution to the appearance of thinning hair

An Expert You Can Trust

Welcome to Medical Ink! Here we understand the importance of feeling confident with your appearance, and know the impact of not being happy with thinning hair.

At Medical Ink, we use modern Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) techniques to disguise the scalp, matching your existing hair colour and shape and replacing ‘lost’ hair. These versatile methods can be used to thicken up the appearance of hair which is becoming thinner. They can be used to cover up scars on the scalp, and scars which you may have as a result of Hair Transplant Surgery. SMP can even be used to create the image of an entire head of shaved hair.

What is SMP?

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP), is the use of fine equipment to create thousands of semi-permanent pigment ‘dots’, just under the surface of the skin. Over 2 or 3 treatments, these dots create visible and realistic coverage of the skin, as it imitates the appearance of a hair follicle. Inks are matched to suit your existing hair colour, with a slightly darker shade used in the second treatment. In this way a ‘depth’ is created so the results look natural.

By the end of 2-3 treatments, these tiny ink-follicles disguise the scalp’s visibility, creating the image of more dense hair.

The skill involved in SMP is not just the application of the dots at the right depth under the skin so the inks do not spread, but also in the consistency and evenness, appropriate colour matching, and blending the SMP seamlessly into areas of existing hair.

How Can You Tell If SMP Is Right For You?

SMP is very versatile, and can be appropriate for almost anyone who wishes for thicker-looking hair. The Inks we use are non-toxic, and naturally degrade over time (semi-permanent). The best way to know is to meet an experienced Practitioner to view their work, and to discuss whether SMP can provide the results you are hoping for.

How Many Sessions Does It Take to Get the Final Result?

Every patient will usually have 3 treatments. The First treatment builds a subtle foundational layer, the subsequent treatment(s) build the density and definition. While there is no necessary time frame for completing the treatments, most patients would like the results as quickly as possible! We leave it a minimum of 2 weeks between treatments so the skin time to heal. Spacing out the treatments in this way is to ensure any skin irritation caused by the treatment has completely subsided before the next stage; in this way, the fastest time to achieve the final result is 6 weeks from start to finish but appointments can be arranged to suit your schedule.
