Best Scalp Micropigmentation: Top Clinics & Results


best scalp micropigmentation clinics

If you’ve been thinking about where to get the best scalp micropigmentation, you’re not alone. This incredible hair tattoo procedure is helping men regain the look of thick hair follicles on their scalps, but not all SMP clinics are created equal – take it from me!

After researching this procedure, I went through hundreds of videos trying to find the best scalp micro clinics around with real testimonials, satisfied clients, and superior results.

While most of these clinics are located in the USA, I found a few top clinics located in Europe and Asia. These represent the best SMP artists with the most satisfied clients who love their scalp micropigmentation results.

How to Pick a Top SMP Clinic?

When it comes to hair restoration, scalp micropigmentation has the reputation of being the best painfree procedure, with no visible scarring and fast recovery time.

Practitioners must undergo up to 2,000 hours of training in some states to become certified SMP artist.

  • Choose a clinic with excellent reviews and top ratings in Google.
  • Professional SMP practitioners must be licensed in the of practice state.
  • Look at before and after photos to see if their SMP looks like real natural hair.
  • Check the clinic’s website for client testimonials.
  • SMP clinics offer partial and full scalp micropigmentation, check service pages for both.
  • When looking at testaments to their work, check color and size of pigments (see SMP regrets and SMP side effects for more info).
  • Ask questions during consultation to ensure high-quality pigments will be used and how long each treatment will take.
  • Treatments typically cost $500 to $750 per follow-up visit, ranging up to $1,200 for a hairline restructure and up to $3,000 – $5,000 for full scalp micropigmentation.
Finding the best scalp micropigmentation clinic starts with diligent research.
Scalp micropigmentation practitioners typically draw the new outline for your hairline tattoo or full scalp tattoo.
