What is the Cost of Scalp Micropigmentation?

The cost of hair loss to someone can be exceptionally high. Beauty standards are on the increase every day where men and women want to look their best but sometimes imperfect hair can really get in the way. Gone are the days skalptec-logo-for-contact-pagewhen only women would spend a their money on improving their looks, because now men are very keen to maintain their physical appearance and very many like to follow the latest grooming & beauty trends.

The issue that worries most men is hereditary hair loss.  Nothing can be done to prevent it but scalp micro-pigmentation is an excellent affordable viable option. There are many other treatments available on the market today such as lotions, creams, hair transplants and oils but no other hair replacement alternative beats scalp micro-pigmentation.

Hair transplantation is a complicated invasive surgery and costs a fortune compared to SMP and the results are unreliable. Also, wearing wigs seems very unnatural these days, so here we are with a fantastic hair loss treatment called scalp micropigmentation. SMP results are guaranteed – yes guaranteed 100%!

The Best SMP services should be affordable

Scalp micropigmentation is a process in which a pigment is inserted into the scalp one by one which gives an effect of having a head of hair.  The cost depends on which area you want to get this treatment for as there are different styles and options for different parts of the head. This treatment gives a feeling of naturally grown hair and it works for different degrees of hair loss, hair styles and hair lengths.

The very first question that arises in our minds, is what scalp micro-pigmentation costs. It depends on several factors such as:

  • The country you are choosing for treatment
  • Competition in the local market
  • Flexibility with appointment dates
  • If you would like to be a case study for the respective clinic
  • Amount of hair loss
  • Follicle density requirement and colour shade variation
  • Surface area of the scalp
  • Alopecia camouflage and scars to camouflage
  • Quality and experience of the scalp technician / SMP provider
  • Insurance guarantee
  • Will other specialized procedures be required

You Get What You Pay For

Why do costs differ from company to company, from scalp technician to scalp technician? It’s reasonable to assume that those more experienced technicians who perform to a consistently high level and already have a portfolio to showcase, would have good reason to charge more than a new scalp micropigmentation technician.male-model-posing-has-smp

Deciding that you suddenly want to modify a hairline after your initial treatment can incur extra charges due to the extra time and additional hours required. If you have hair transplant scars or alopecia that needs camouflaging this can mean a more complicated treatment which again may require more time. Having the right technician with you can make a whole lot of difference – you do get what you pay for.

At Skalptec you will find our costs are consistent at our clinics no matter where our clinics are located. Once you have had a private consultation with us and after we have determined how far along the Norwood Scale you are, we’ll be able to give a more accurate quote.

The Cost of Scalp Micropigmentation Varies

As with different hair loss companies, prices will vary. Anyone who is planning to get scalp micro-pigmentation should also keep in mind the occasional touch up costs in order to maintain the look. We recommend returning for a freshen up of the whole scalp top every 12 to 24 months – this can be done with Skalptec at a very reasonable cost of £250 for the full scalp. It’s important to remember, that poor maintenance and excessive sun exposure can mean touch up visits being more frequent.

Many might be wondering whether or not they can afford the SMP treatment. “How much does scalp micropigmentation cost?” naturally you will ask this question. SMP is very affordable compared to costs for other hair replacement alternatives which can build up excessively over time.

What will SMP cost?

The Norwood scale (seen in the image) will help you to identify which stage of hair loss you are at. It is imperative to understand how far along your hair loss is. norwood-ludwig-scale

You’ll find a range of prices out there for SMP treatments such as (1) small patches of micro-pigmentation treatment to cover scars, (2) the crown and hairline, (3) SMP for the whole head, (4) Alopecia. A lot depends on the factors mentioned here. It is recommended that you do your due diligence. Every client’s needs are different and specific treatment arrangements should be tailor made to the individual, and that can only be done by first booking a private consultation.

There are many scalp micro-pigmentation clinics in the United Kingdom and around the world. SMP treatment is available for women and men who face various hair thinning hurdles. Some clinics offer free adjustments and guarantees especially during the first few months to a year after treatment. Some clinics also offer mock-up sessions where they will demonstrate how you will look after the treatment. Patience is key and this can help a lot to avoid any mistakes and disappointments. Choose wisely to ensure that you ultimately achieve the look that you will always be proud of.
