Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp Micropigmentation is the new alternative solution for hair loss.  It uses disposable microneedles in order to create thousands of tiny pigmented hair-dots between and around natural hair.


The objective of this method is to replicate natural hair follicles in size, shape and colour with the existing ones, enhancing hair density. What is actually achieved is an optical illusion of dense short-cut hair.

Scalp  MicroPigmentation Applications

Hair Loss

The technique of micropigmentation is a specialised procedure, which involves the application of tiny quantities of a special hypoallergenic and organic ink that is similar in colour to the existing hair,at the areas that are thinning, thus enhancing the appearance of thick hair. In the case of androgenetic alopecia, our objective is to create a realistic illusion of denser hair, which will enhance patient’s confidence.

Combination of Hair Transplantation and Scalp MicroPigmentation

Scalp MicroPigmentation method is indicated for people who don’t have a satisfactory donor area. At the same time, it is extremely effective when the number of hair follicles is insufficient, making hair thickening process difficult.

In this case, the appropriate solution is the combination of Hair Transplantation and Scalp MicroPigmentation. Scalp Micropigmentation method acts in a reinforcing manner, as exact replicas of coloured micro-dots are created between the existing hair, giving a sense of hair density on the scalp.

Our objective is to create an absolutely realistic result, through the design and creation of natural lines that frame your face without altering its features.

What should I do after the treatment to maintain the result?

To maintain the natural looking result on your scalp after the application of Scalp Micropgimentation you should keep your hair cut short at the right length. The length you should cut your hair depends entirely on the extent of hair loss.

Scalp health is of equal importance. You should keep your scalp healthy and hydrated, avoid the use of alcohol products, and take the necessary precautions when exposed to the sun.
