Scalp Micropigmentation Dublin Reviews Rated 5 ★★★★★ on Google
It has been 6 months since I had my SMP done by Geraldine at Skalp Dublin and the result is fantastic.
I was as sceptical about SMP as most people are but after my free consultation with Geraldine and Ciaran they talked me through the process and I felt it was something that was right for me.
I had been using Hair Systems until I made the best decision I ever did and get SMP.
It looks so realistic that literally nobody except my wife knows I had it done and it looks like I shaved my full head of hair and not a balding head.
For my SMP in Skalp Malahide i had 3 sessions in total over a few weeks with Geraldine and in all honesty her enthusiasm and positivity was brilliant so credit where its due.
It has given me such confidence and I regret not getting it done sooner.
Can’t recommend highly enough.
Geri is very professional and pays great attention to detail.
I completed my last treatment today with Ger, i cannot recommend Skalp Malahide enough. The way i was treated from my first free consultation and subsequent smp sessions was so professional. Gers constant support through constant phone calls, wattsapps and patience during session’s.
My only regret is i didnt get it done sooner. I spent month’s reviewing the best smp clinic to go to, look no further and book your free consultation with Ger ASAP.
Cant recommend and thank Ger enough 😊
Have to say I just finished my SMP treatment these guys are top class I am delighted with my finish Ger and Kieran and super guys to work with and know there job extremely well .. I have no doubt a good few of my friends and people know me will also be going for the same treatment can’t say one bad thing about skalp.. what I would say is don’t think about it go for it 😁
I have just finished my last SMP session today with Gerry in Skalp Dublin and wanted to write a review for anyone considering it.
From the first initial consultation Gerry has been so professional and helpful, answering all of my many questions and providing reassurance during what is a very important time! Thinning hair can wreak havoc on your confidence and I was very self conscious going into the initial consultation.
I was made feel at ease with every worry and question I had, Skalp Dublin is such a great place to go for SMP and I am so grateful to Gerry for her amazing work.
Everything was so professional, from the booking system reminders to the access WhatsApp for any quick after care questions I had.
Overall there is nothing I would change from my experience, but even though the experience was amazing, the best part has to be the SMP results!
The difference this has made to me is nothing short of a miracle, I only wish I had it done sooner.
Anyone thinking of SMP should have a consultation, you won’t regret it.
Thanks again Gerry and Skalp Dublin!
Hello everyone, i had my treatment done last week no words to say how natural the result came out. i will recomend to anyone who is thinking to do it just give one chance to yourself i bet you will not regret.
Geraldine changed my life with her experince and hard work. i can see my hairline in morrior and looks so natural. anyone consider get the free cousltation and think about it.
Once again thanks Geraldine skalp team. i wish i had done it years ago but its never late..
I’ve just finished my treatment with Skalp Dublin last week and the results are amazing, I can’t believe how natural it looks from hairline to colour and could not be happier, for the first time in nearly 20 years I no longer feel bald and it has completely changed my confidence,
For anyone thinking of having this done definitely go see Geraldine and Ciaran at Skalp Dublin,
I found Skalp Dublin to be very professional from start to finish, Geraldine is an amazing practitioner with a very welcoming and friendly personality , it’s the best decision I’ve made thanks guys 👍
I availed of the free consultation at Skalp over a year ago and decided recently to take the plunge and get the procedure, my only regret was not to have had it done sooner!!
From start to finish I found the service at Skalp in Malahide to be friendly and extremely professional. I would strongly recommend to anyone who is even slightly considering the procedure to take the free consultation, you can be assured that Geraldine and Ciaran offer great impartial and informed advice.
The results have exceeded my expectations in terms of how natural it looks. Thanks Guys!
Thank you so much Skalp Dublin, can’t believe I have the hairline I want after 2 failed transplants in Turkey, Geraldine is an amazing artist, highly recommend.

Frequently Asked Questions
Scalp Micropigmentation (also known as SMP or a hair tattoo) is a non-surgical hair loss treatment where pigments are deposited into the scalp to replicate the natural appearance of real hair follicles, giving you a new hairline and the look of a full head of hair that has been closely-shaven or to add density to thin hair.
Camouflage scarring from previous hair transplant surgeries and boost the visual effect of a hair transplant.
Restore the look of a full head of hair on even a completely bald head due to alopecia.
Make thin hair appear a lot thicker by camouflaging the scalp. By not seeing so much skin on the scalp your hair appears thicker.
Scalp Micropigmentation, when done by an experienced practitioner, gives hyper-realistic results. Clients say that even up close in the mirror, they can’t even tell the difference between their real hair follicles and the treatment.
Scalp Micropigmentation is classed as a permanent treatment. Although the results are permanent, they can fade slightly over the years to a lighter color. We recommend a short touch-up every 3-6 years.
Scalp Micropigmentation takes place over 3 sessions and a standard session lasts 1-4 hours depending on the amount of area that requires treatment.
There is one week between sessions 1 & 2. Then a 3rd session takes place 1 month later.
Colour and density are gradually built up over 3 sessions to ensure a perfect colour match and blend with your existing hair.
We always start slightly too light with the colour on session 1, then make small adjustments in the following sessions to get the perfect result.
The hairline design is a very personal choice. A hairline design is drawn on before each session starts, your practitioner will guide and work closely with you to ensure you get the exact hairline you want. You can decide exactly how soft & natural or sharp & defined the hairline is.
Skalp has been the Scalp Micropigmentation industry leader for over 10 years and has changed the lives of over 20,000 happy clients. Skalp practitioners are known worldwide for being the most experienced practitioners in the industry and producing the most natural results possible. It is easy for every clinic to claim to be the best but we have the reputation, reviews and testimonials to prove it.
Skalp practitioners are trained for 3 months before performing a treatment compared to the industry standard of 3-5 days.
When your Scalp Micropigmentation treatment is carried out by a Skalp® practitioner you can relax knowing you have the most experienced practitioners in the industry performing your treatment, Scalp Micropigmentation is a highly skilled treatment and should only be carried out by a highly trained and experienced professional.
When SMP is performed by an inexperienced or undertrained practitioner you may not get the desired result.
No, Scalp Micropigmentation is a highly specialised treatment, the technique, machine, needles and pigment we use are all different from what is used in a regular tattoo. An SMP practitioner could not perform a regular tattoo and a regular tattooist could not perform an SMP treatment. Sadly we have seen quite a few examples of a regular tattooist attempting to perform an SMP treatment without the correct training
Yes. We offer a finance option where you can split your treatment cost into affordable monthly payments, with 0% interest available at some clinics.
The pigment we use for treatment is designed just for Scalp Micropigmentation hair tattoos, it does not change colour like a regular tattoo. The colour will get lighter over the years, but will not change colour after any period of time.
You can expect to see visible results and your new hairline instantly. Straight after each session, there may be some redness. Redness usually lasts 24 hours after each session. We gradually build up the density and make small adjustments to the colour and hairline shape over 3 sessions to get the perfect result.
In most cases, yes. For a standard SMP hair tattoo, you will need to shave your hair using hair clippers, a facial shaver, or a razor. We recommend the best length to shave your hair for your treatment to look natural would be a 0.5-grade length or shorter. Of course, we encourage you to experiment with what shaving routine looks and works best for you.
Scalp Micropigmentation can work on long hair to give the appearance of thicker hair if you have enough remaining hair. A thickening treatment works the same as on a shaved head by mimicking the appearance of hair follicles so that less of the scalp is visible. If there is not enough remaining hair for the treatment to blend with, we may advise that you would need to shave.
Yes, Scalp Micropigmentation works very well on women with thin or thinning hair, by camouflaging the scalp and not seeing so much skin it gives the appearance of thicker, fuller hair. Click here for more info on SMP for women.
Scalp Micropigmentation works with any hair colour, as when any hair colour is closely shaved down to the follicle you are left with a grey shade. We match the treatment to how dark your shade is. So it makes no difference if your hair is grey or turns grey after the treatment. Click here for more info on Scalp Micropigmentation and grey hair.
After 5 years your Scalp Micropigmentation hair tattoo will look a lighter version of how it did when it was first done. You can then decide if you want to have a short touch-up to return the treatment to its original colour when you first had it done, or you may reach a certain age and let it keep fading.
Yes, If you have had hair transplant surgery then you may have been left with scars. We can camouflage all forms of Hair transplant scarring, Strip/Punch/FUE, so you can wear your hair as short as you like.
Not only can we cover your scars but we can also enhance the results of your transplant by adding density thin/thinning hair.
Yes, there is a 12-month guarantee from your first session for full treatments, just in case any area of the treatment is not quite perfect. Simply give us a call and we will book you in for one extra session at no extra charge. However, any style or color changes to your original treatment are chargeable at an hourly rate.
The shaved hair look is a style that has stood the test of time. It’s easy to maintain, looks smart, and is effortlessly cool. If you are not sure if a shaved head will suit you, we offer free virtual hairline mock-ups to give you an idea of how you will look with the treatment and your new hairline. Click here to send us your picture to get your virtual hairline.
Yes it is totally safe and non-invasive. The treatment only goes half as deep into the skin as a regular tattoo. We have never seen any adverse effects due to a hair tattoo.
As Scalp Micropigmentation is non-surgical, like a regular tattoo, it does not affect the real hair follicles and cannot cause hair loss.
No, for most of our clients the pain is minimal and described as a lot less painful than a regular tattoo. No pain medication is needed and any discomfort is only during the actual Scalp Micropigmentation hair tattoo treatment.
Following the treatment, the treated area will look slightly red for roughly 24 hours, a lot of our clients go back to work the next day. Scalp Micropigmentation requires no downtime as it is a non-invasive treatment. We do recommend you avoid rubbing your head or sweating heavily for 4 days after each session. Click here to view our aftercare guide.
Compared to a hair transplant that can take up to one year to recover and see the results, the results from Scalp Micropigmentation are instant.
We know that when you have decided you want the treatment, you’ll be keen to get started ASAP, however, our clinics are very busy and can get booked up for a few weeks.
Scalp Micropigmention is reversible. We’ve never had a customer to date want to remove the treatment however the removal process would be similar to that of tattoo removal. The difference is that Scalp Micropigmentation is only situated within the 2nd dermal skin layer compared to a regular tattoo being twice as deep. So a Scalp Micropigmentation treatment is a lot easier to remove and can be fully removed with a laser within two sessions. We can imagine our clients looking to change their hairline, perhaps soften the hairline or maybe even recede slightly as they become older.
After 3-6 years you may feel the need for a touch-up. Whether you want to adjust your hairline, freshen it up or just fancy going a bit darker. Touch-ups are charged at an hourly rate which is £300+VAT, ($450)(€300). A touch-up is usually only one hour long, sometimes two hours depending on the size of the area needing treatment.
Yes of course! Our clinics are always busy and we are happy to arrange for you to meet another client that has finished their treatment or are mid-way through their treatment.
