With over half a million procedures undertaken, you're in safe hands
There is just no denying that hair loss is something that can make us feel very self-conscious - men and women alike. The gradual, but increasingly visible appearance of the scalp through thinning hair can change how we see our entire faces, making us feel embarrassed, unattractive and old before our time.
The Harley Street Skin Clinic want you to finally put down the spray-on hair and cast aside the uncomfortable hairpieces. Forget all about the idea of harsh medication, steroid creams or painful transplants. We want to show you exactly what can be done with a spot of cosmetic camouflage...
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
Scalp Micropigmentation (a.k.a. 'SMP' ) is but one procedure at The Harley Street Skin Clinic that disproves the idea that 'no pain' equals 'no gain'. Whilst some patients report a little discomfort - typically somewhere between 0 and 3 on the pain scale - others have managed to close their eyes and slip into slumber during their sessions. That's right: SMP is a perfectly comfortable, and astonishingly quick remedy to anyone unhappy with hair loss.
Using a combination of careful colour matching, professional placement and tattooing techniques, Scalp Micropigmentation aims to mimic the natural hairline and can even be used to conceal scarring from prior hair transplants or trauma which may have lead to hair loss.
SMP offers incredible results to those intending to maintain the appearance of the 'buzzcut' - although not exclusively. Although typically thought to be a treatment only aimed at men, in actuality, SMP works wonders for anyone seeking the appearance of volume and fullness.
Those worried about being left with a harsh, dark hairline when the rest of their hair has transitioned to silver need not panic, either. SMP uses tattoo technique which, depending on depth, can be both permanent and semi-permanent to account for the changing of hair shade overtime.

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
At the most basic level, SMP creates the illusion of active hair follicles on the scalp. SMP achieves this by mimicking the natural hairline, making hundreds - sometimes thousands - of minute dots onto the head, in a similar way to how you might receive a tattoo: piercing the dermis and placing coloured pigment within the skin.
Whilst it may be very easy to just think of SMP as just 'tattooing', both training and technique for this particular branch of tattooing is incredibly specialised. From mapping the most organic hairline to creating custom pigment designed to perfectly match your natural skin and hair tones, SMP requires eagle-eyed precision and real-eye for the natural contours of the scalp.
By adding strategically placed shading along the hairline, our medical tattooists our able to eradicate a complaint that many of our patients have struggled with for years.
SMP typically sees a huge surge in self confidence, and often even strips back years from the face, leaving patients looking younger, fresher and undoubtedly more smiley.
This will entirely depend on the method used. For those seeking the 'close shave' look, pigment can be administered deeper into the dermis, resulting in permanent implantation of colour.
Alternatively, those that may be concerned about committing to something permanent - perhaps those worried about a change in hair tone whilst transitioning to grey, more superficial cosmetic tattooing (similar to Microblading for the brow or lash line) can be achieved. This method typically remains visible for up to 3 years.
This will depend entirely on the size of the area treated although the majority of our patients require three sessions to see optimum results. These sessions may last anywhere between 1-5 hours, with the first session typically requiring the most time.
These times are however subject to change depending on factors such as: head size, the complexity of your particular case, and/or medical history.
Side effects of SMP are very similar to that of tradition tattooing - however slight shorter lived. Patients will likely experience some inflammation, redness and tenderness as a result of the small perforations made - beyond this, you may experience some scabbing over of the small wounds, and/or slight weeping. By days 4-5, any visible symptoms should begin to settle down. This is all perfectly normal, and practitioners will advise you how best to treat and cleanse the scalp during this time.
Recovery from SMP is minimal, although each session will require a minimum healing time of 5-7 days in between. Following your last treatment, the newly implanted pigment will take roughly one month to fully settle into the skin. There may be some residual scabbing and/or roughness beyond this, but by this point in your recovery, any side effects should be minimal.
*Please be aware that this is an approximation and each individual patient will respond a little differently to treatment.
There is no need to abstain from work due to Scalp Micropigmentation treatment, although it is sometimes recommended that you keep the area covered for the first couple of days - allowing time for the treated skin to breathe intermittently. If the practitioner feels this is necessary, you will be advised further on the day of treatment.
