Scalp Micro Pigmentation And Optical Hair Compensation

Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) is an innovative, non-surgical treatment that is used to camouflage baldness and scars.

With this technique, micro stubble is simulated and pigmented into the skin, which is similar to tattooing. It gives the impression of a naturally shaved hairstyle called THE SHAVEN LOOK.

This is an affordable great solution for men and women and completely restores your confidence!

SMP can be used for:

  • complete hair loss
  • baldness
  • reduced hair density
  • noticeable broad or receding hairline
  • hair loss – if too much scalp is noticeable
  • uneven hair growth
  • autoimmune diseases such as alopecia
  • restore hairline
  • rejuvenate coves or hairline
  • bald spots
  • scars from trauma or surgery
  • hair transplant scars
  • extra compaction after a hair transplant

Scalp Micro Pigments do not contain constituent colors, so it is impossible for the pigment to change color. Unlike other products based on tattoo inks or permanent make-up pigments, Scalp Pigments are pure black, carbon-based hydrophobic pigments that provide the highest level of stability and safety.

Scalp Micro Pigments are formulated for permanent procedures. Although the pigment never changes color, it slowly fades over time, mainly due to UV radiation and skin friction. Refreshing treatment will be required once every 3 to 5 years . If no refresher treatment is carried out, it is expected that the Scalp Micro Pigments will largely have faded after 10 years and will hardly be visible anymore.

Naturally, this process differs from person to person and depends on many factors such as the condition of the skin, lifestyle, UV radiation, medication, etc.


The shaven look normally consists of 3-4 treatments. The first treatment is the basic pigmentation, which is usually done with a slightly lighter shade than your own hair color. The result of the first treatment, mode and duration of recovery, determines the mode of after-treatments and color of the pigment inks. Due to the build-up of pigment inks in your skin, in three treatments, optical depth will arise, resulting in a 3D effect. The treatment is applicable for men and women.


When the treatment is ready, you will receive an aftercare package for the care at home with personal instructions on how to take care of your new look. The pigmentation creates small wounds / scrapes on which skin-like crusts develop. These come off after 4 to 7 days. The pigmentation will be visible but looks to have become a lot lighter. The result of this treatment is only visible and can be assessed after 4 weeks, after which the next treatment “intensification” takes place.


The epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin. This mainly consists of horn cells. These cells are constantly re-formed in the bottom layer of the epidermis. The cells multiply by division. The newly formed horn cells gradually move up to the surface of the skin because they are pushed upwards by the continuous production of new cells. When the cells end up high in the epidermis they die, yet they still remain very important!

These dead cells together form a very strong armor, which is difficult to penetrate for pathogens and also prevents the skin from drying out. This dead horny layer is extra thick on some parts of the skin, such as in a wound of pigmentation that has been restored.

Eventually, the outermost layer of the epidermis flakes off. This is not bad, as new layers are constantly being created by cell division. On average, the entire epidermis is completely replaced every 30 days.
