Scalp Micropigmentation

What is SMP?

SMP is a form of restorative hair tattooing where we imitate the look of hair follicles through using a micro needle to implant pigment into the dermal layer of the scalp.

What if I am not bald?

SMP can be used to fill in density if the client still has existing hair. However; if there is significant hair loss, it is recommended to cut the hair to achieve the most natural look possible. Upon consultation we will be able to determine which method will give you the best results.

How much does SMP Cost?

Scalp Micropigmentation pricing is assessed on a case by case basis depending on the level of hair loss. Generally the cost can range anywhere from $1500- $4000 CAD. Please set up a free consultation if you are curious about a personalized quote based on your needs.

What if I had a hair transplant / want one in the future?

SMP is a great method to camouflaging transplant scars. If you have had FUE or FUT Hair transplant, you must wait 12 months before moving forward with SMP. However; You are able to get a hair transplant almost immediately after your SMP has healed.

How long will it last?

SMP can be expected to last many years. Most people choose to come in for a couple touchups in that time period as your SMP can fade depending on your care routine & skin type.

What is the Recovery Time like?

Scalp Micropigmentation has no downtime! After the treatment it is normal to have some slight redness for 2 -3 days post session.

I’m in the military, Can I get this ?

Yes! The Canadian Military has made a policy exception for Scalp Micropigmentation tattooing as the results are hyper realistic.

How long does it take?

A minimum of 3-4 sessions are needed for SMP. Each session can last between 1-3 hours depending on the area needing to be covered. These sessions are spaced out 10-14 days apart to allow for proper healing.

Will it change colour?

No. Pigments used are Natural, Vegan and contain no additional colorants or additives. SMP will fade over time but not change colour.

Does it hurt?

Everyone experiences pain differently. Most people say SMP feels like little pin pricks and with minimal pain.

Can I still use Rogaine ?

The use of Rogaine or other chemical topicals must be put on pause until your treatment is fully completed and healed. This is to prevent interference with the pigment from the chemicals in the products.

Am I a good candidate for SMP?

The great thing about SMP is mostly anyone is candidate. Certain skin and autoimmune disorders may limit your experience but this is on a case by case basis. Please contact us for more information if you have any concerns.

Do I need to have the touchup?

The 6-8 week touch up appointment is HIGHLY recommended to ensure we are able to correct any areas that have faded and to make slight adjustments.

What is the Difference between Microblading and Ombré brows?

Microblading is done with a single blade to imitate hair strokes. Ombré/powder brows are done with a machine tool. Ombré brows are less invasive and therefore recommended for those with thinner, older skin.

It is a semi permanent treatment that will fade over time. Clients usually book a yearly touchup to maintain their colour and shape. Longevity of the procedure is dependent on Skin type, pigment colour, sun exposure, use of daily skin care products that increase cell turnover rate.

Does it hurt?

You will have a preliminary topical numbing cream applied before we begin. To keep you numb throughout the procedure we use an additional numbing gel for broken skin to minimize discomfort. (NOTE: If you are on your menstrual cycle or are a smoker, the pain level could be higher)

Who is Not a Candidate ?

Those who are Pregnant, Breast feeding
Diabetics (Unless you obtain a doctors note)

How to prepare for an appointment

*Wear comfortable clothes to your appointment as you will be laying down/sitting for a long time
* Please bring reference photos to your appointment if you have any
*We will be sitting close to each other so please practice proper hygiene out of respect, and I will do the same.
* Do not drink coffee, alcohol or any blood thinning medication 24-48 hours before your procedure as this will increase pain and bleeding. If there is excessive bleeding, the pigment will not stay and we will have to reschedule.
