What is the cost of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)?


It’s important to do your homework and research when considering which route to take as a solution to hair thinning and balding, as there are many different types of treatments on the market. One of the most important considerations is the cost of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) compared to the other types of treatments.

SMP is the only permanent hair loss solution that has guaranteed results, and – in the long run – is far more affordable compared to other hair restoration methods (such as hair transplant surgeries, hair systems, or hair loss medications) which can mount up considerably over time. With SMP you get faster results because you need only 2 or 3 sessions, so it’s a once-off investment.


factors influencing the price

The cost of SMP will also vary according to the country you are in. Generally speaking prices in South Africa tend to be more reasonable than other countries where the cost of living is much higher.

Another consideration is the type of clinic and practitioner offering SMP. Expensive clinics will usually charge more because they have to cover their overheads – not necessarily because their work is superior. So, take into consideration their qualifications and experience in the field.

Also, make sure you are not dealing with a tattoo artist who does not have the qualifications for SMP. Remember, SMP is permanent and cannot be reversed, so make sure you hire an experienced and qualified SMP technician.

Scalp Micropigmentation is a very intricate procedure that requires specialized techniques and sophisticated equipment. On average, there are over 100,000 follicles on the human head; this means that the skilled practitioner must carefully implant pigments by hand up to 560 times per square centimeter.  See: SMP is not a tattoo!
