Scalp micropigmentation, or SMP for short, is a cosmetic tattoo used to restore bald or thinning hair. The non-surgical procedure deposits ink into the scalp to mimic the look of a shaved head and can be used to create the illusion of a hairline or make thinning hair appear fuller.
SMP does not penetrate the skin as deeply as a tattoo and uses special ink that won’t change colors through time. Colors are selected to match the person’s hair color and scalp color, ensuring that the hairline looks as natural as possible.
SMP is completed in three sessions, scheduled 10 to 14 days apart. Each session takes approximately two to three hours and the area is thoroughly numbed before any work begins.
SMP is recommended for people of all skin types and hair colors, and can also be used to cover scars, hide burns and treat other hair-loss condition. SMP is a permanent procedure and the results hold a lifetime guarantee from Taylor Perry.

Ombré eyebrows—also known as powder brows or shaded brows—are created using a permanent procedure similar to a tattoo. The shape and color is fully customizable to match the natural brow. Eyebrows are numbed before pigment is directly inserted into the top layer of the skin. The results last 1 to 3 years, though a touch up is recommended at 6 to 8 weeks.
