Does scalp micropigmentation look fake?

For anyone who is struggling with hair loss or male pattern balding, finding the right solution can be difficult. If you are considering whether it’s time to go for scalp micropigmentation then you probably have some questions that you would like answered first.

How can I get my hairline back? Will it look fake?

One of the most common questions we hear is: “Does scalp micropigmentation look fake?

We understand why people can be sceptical, as there are a lot of treatments out there that never deliver what they promise. The sheer volume of products that are sold on the basis of preventing hair loss. Equally there are many claiming to help hair growth. This shows that hair loss in men is an issue.

None of the products on the market provide any guarantee of success and people can spend a fortune on trying to achieve the unachievable. When it comes to scalp micropigmentation we truly believe this treatment is different. We offer the perfect solution to your hair loss worries. Scalp micropigmentation doesn’t claim to give you your hair back. We can give you a realistic appearance if you don’t want to appear completely bald. We explain why scalp micropigmentation doesn’t look fake below.

How does scalp micropigmentation work?

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a natural hair loss treatment that can change your life. Our skilled technicians carefully apply natural pigments to your scalp in a phased process. It replicates the appearance of real hair follicles, restoring your hairline or hair density. It is a non-invasive treatment that doesn’t involve surgery or taking any type of medication so the treatment is completely safe to use.

Our technicians apply the pigments to your scalp using a microneedle. In other words, it is similar to having a tattoo on your scalp that replicates the appearance of hair follicles. The technicians add hundreds of tiny dots in this way to the skin which will look like real hair follicles on a shaved head by the end of the last treatment session.

What is SMP used for?

We also use the treatment to cover up scars, burns, or birthmarks on the scalp. If you do not have bald spots, but thinning hair instead, the treatment can be applied to add shading to create extra density.

At Skalp we follow a simply 6-step process:

  • Free consultation: One of our qualified technicians will take a closer look at your hair and talk to you about your hair loss and what you want to achieve by having scalp micropigmentation. They will then discuss your treatment options with you.
  • Free virtual hairline mock-up: You don’t have to just take our word for it that the end result will look great on you. We create a photo-realistic digital version of what your new hairline will look like. This gives you the option of changing how you want it to look so that when you have the treatment, you get the results you wanted.
  • Session 1: If you go ahead with the treatment, the first session lasts 3-4 hours and we’ll create the hairline and first fill.
  • Session 2: The second session lasts 2-4 hours and involves a fill and texture.
  • Session 3: The final session lasts 1-4 hours where we add the finishing touches.
  • Aftercare: To ensure you get the most from your treatment, we’ll give you some key tips on how to take care of your new hairline.

What do you think? Does this look fake?

Our customers are often amazed by the results, and we are proud to receive their glowing feedback. We have an amazing 4.9 rating on Trustpilot (not many companies can say the same). You can also check out some of the five-star customer reviews to see what people are saying about the treatment and the service that we provide.

The important thing to remember about the treatment is that choosing a quality company really makes the difference. A cheaper option can save you money, but it could cost you in many other ways. Fake scalp micropigmentation could be dangerous as you won’t know what is being used or how the treatment will be administered. If an offer seems like it is too good to be true then it probably is.

This is why we encourage anyone interested in SMP to visit our clinics and take a free tour. You get a better idea of the high-quality facilities and equipment we use. Our technicians are always happy to answer your question. They are also the perfect advert for the treatment, as they have all used it before.

We will always be happy to show you examples of the treatments we have administered so that you can see for yourself that scalp micropigmentation looks extremely realistic. If you are still not convinced, it’s worth booking in for a free consultation so that we can show you what can be achieved with your hair loss.

Can I see some examples of natural hairlines?

No problem at all. Not only do we have a large gallery of photos on our website and social media. At each clinic you can see a huge selection of past clients on our iPads.

Once you have finished your treatment there are some aftercare rules that you should follow to keep your new hairline looking healthy and realistic.
