You go and live a less stressful, no worry, easy life when it comes to your scalp and your look. Maintain it, and I will see you in another couple of years for a touch up.

Keep in mind that you know yourself best and you have to be the one to live with it and so we provide suggestions during the consultation and also the during the drawing of the hairline etc, but ultimately until you are satisfied with what we have drawn, we will not start the SMP procedure. So it is a combination of your input and mine. In the end, we work together to make sure we have created a look that fits and represents who you and also speaks well of my practice. So, rest assured, you are in good hands and in control.

Similar to pricing, SMP treatment time varies based on each client and their particular need but you can expect anywhere from 2-4 hours for the first session and 1-3 hours for the second session. 

SMP, Once completed and healed, there is practically no maintenance. All that is required is to keep the area where you have hair cut down in a buzz cut. You do not necessarily have to use a razor to shave but you need to keep your hair maintained and groomed.

There is a $100 deposit which goes towards your total cost. SMP treatment payments are broken up into the two seasons. 70% of the Toal cost at the end of the first session and the other 30% at the second session. We accept cash, credit card and you can also apply for financing using the link on our page. 

SMP cost varies based on each persons specific need. It also depends on a couple of factors such as condition of scalp and extent of hair loss. Cost can range from $1200(scar) – $3500 (Norwood 7). It is very simple to get a cost though. Just text a picture to 704-499-3471 and we will provide you with a quote. 

Scalp Micropigmentation is accomplished in 2-3 sessions with a third session used on a as need basis. Treatments are 7-10 days apart, ensuring that the previous session has healed very well and the next layer applied thereafter.

I get this SMP question all the time. The answer is very subjective, but this is what I know. Unlike a conventional tattoo, where the top layer of the skin is being destroyed by multiple, larger needles, MicroPigmentation uses a single tiny needle that is much smaller, causing much less irritation and pain. From a pain level of 1-10, most customers say it is a 3. As a matter of fact, I have had people snoring during the procedure.

This is probably one of the most misunderstood subject and I get this a lot. The answer is No! The sun will not make the SMP treatment go away, but constant, over-exposure to the sun without sunblock can cause some fading over time. Taking care in the sun and using a good sunblock will keep your scalp looking good for the long haul.

No. We do not use tattoo ink, which contains all sorts of dye. The ink we use is one of the things that sets us apart. It is all natural ink with no chemicals so you never have to worry about your scalp turning any other color.

Yes. The payment covers all three sessions and once you pay, you never have to come out of pocket again, unless you want us to make any changes to the procedure i.e. hairline, etc.

No. The purpose of going forward with this procedure is to give you back time to live life without having to spend time worrying about your hair. So upon healing, there is nothing needed to maintain the procedure. Just keep your hair cut low and moisturized(coconut oil)and go on enjoying life.

24-48 hours, depending on the individual, but normally by 24-48 hours the redness has subsided and within 1-2 weeks, it has healed.

The procedure is permanent. It will not disappear completely as time goes on, but it will fade. The extent of the fading is dependent on how well you maintain it. Keeping your scalp groomed and well moisturized and keeping away from long (1 hr or more) direct exposure to the sun will protect your investment for between 3-4 years before needing a touch up.
