Hair Loss Tattoo for Balding – What is it and how does it work?


 Men can now go from completely bald to a full head of shaved hair using a hairline tattoo treatment.

The treatment, known as Scalp Micropigmentation, or SMP,  uses a permanent tattoo to mimic the appearance of real hair follicles on the scalp. The results…well, they are surprisingly realistic.

Scalp Micropigmentation – What is it?

Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-surgical treatment for hair loss. It uses a microneedle, machine and specialised ink to place tiny dots into the scalp which look just like shaved hair follicles.

What’s the process?

Most clinics split the treatment into 3 sessions, so they can build up the ‘follicles’ gradually for the most natural results. Usually the 1st and 2nd sessions are 1 week apart and the 3rd is around 1 month after that.

Going to a reputable company such as Skalp Dublin® means you can see the treatment in real life as well as a browse a large results gallery. Seeing previous examples of the practitioner’s work is an important factor in deciding which SMP provider to go for.

Who can get it done?

Scalp Micropigmentation can reverse the appearance of lots of types of hair loss. It can add density to thin or sparse hair as well as recreate a full buzz cut look on a completely bald head.

It also works on:

  • Receding hairlines
  • Bald patches
  • Thinning hair
  • Alopecia
  • Scars

Is there any maintenance involved?

After you have SMP you would need to continue to wet shave or use clippers to keep your remaining hair to a 0.5 grade for it to blend with the treatment. There are minimal aftercare instructions post-treatment and most people return to work the next day.

How much does it cost?

The price depends on how much hair loss there is but typically you can expect to pay between €1500-€3000 for the full treatment. Make sure to find a company that provides a guarantee so you can trust that you have extra treatment included if anything is not perfect.
