Scalp trichopigmentation (STP), or scalp micropigmentation (SMP), is a cosmetic treatment that can create a temporary or permanent impression of increased hair density and coverage.

The application of tiny dots of ink to the scalp, carefully matched to your hair colour, can give a much fuller look through reducing the colour contrast between scalp and hair.

Some people use this technique to create a “shaved stubble” look and others use it to reduce the see-through element of their thinning hair. STP is also a great way to conceal previous scars from FUT or FUE surgery, allowing you to wear your hair even shorter.


What does a scalp trichopigmentation (STP) treatment involve?

STP (or SMP) is performed in the comfort of our state of the art clinic, while you sit back and watch movies or have a snooze. A session to treat either the front half of the scalp or the crown area can take around 4 hours. Of course, the session takes longer if you wish to address larger areas.

Many of our patients are comfortable without the use of local anaesthetic injections, but, as a medial clinic, we are able to completely numb the scalp if requested. It is our priority to make the process as easy and comfortable as possible.
