Direct MPG is the process of getting ink marks on your scalp that look like tiny hairs; a technique known as “Cosmetic Hair Follicle replication”. It is not a tattoo, nor a form of cosmetic makeup.
Enhance hair density and cover bald region.
The MPG is a new and promising treatment for higher density visibility and to cover bald spots. It uses a non-toxic pigment and is performed in a way to offer an accurate stimulation of baby follicles.
It is applied to the scalp, in the form of small dots or lines, between existing hair (transplanted or not). It can be used on your hair for a thickening effect or on a bald area to create a haven look
How does Micro pigmentation work?
MPG is used for a variety of scalp conditions, including genetic male pattern baldness, scarring alopecia and scarring from neuro surgical procedures and burns. Any person who is confronted with androgenic alopecia can use this technique. Individuals, who have suffered some sort of wound or trauma in the past, whether it is in the form of a scar or a burn, can use MPG. Patients who have had a strip surgery can also use it to conceal their wounds and scars. Moreover, those who have undergone a hair transplant are also welcomed to have this procedure done.
What is Scalp Micro Pigmentation?
Scalp Micro Pigmentation, or SMP as it is commonly known, is not just a regular hair tattoo but a highly specialized process during which tiny deposits of pigment are positioned within the dermal layer of the skin. When applied by a skilled practitioner, these deposits replicate the look of real haven hair.
Our SMP treatments are as flexible as you need them to be. Typically our clients are able to specify the shape of their frontal hairline and side profiles, request a defined or super-soft “broken” hairline, opt for a more receded look or use lighter pigments for a softer look overall. SMP is intended to create the style you always wanted, and our practitioners are fully trained to cater for all requirements including treatments for white, Hispanic, black and Asian skin tones.
SMP by expert aesthetics is a permanent solution for hair loss. All that is required of the recipient is that they keep their hair cut to the right length using standard hair clippers, an electric face shaver or razor. The length that the hair should be cut to is solely dependent upon the extent of the client’s hair loss. We also recommend that all clients keep their skin healthy and hydrated by regularly moisturizing their scalp.
A short touch-up session may be required for some clients from time to time, however, in such cases, these sessions are usually at least two to three years apart.
What is the process?
All clients are invited to participate in a free consultation session with a member of our team. In most cases these consultations are conducted face to face, however for clients who are based overseas or for those who may find it difficult to travel to the clinic, consultations can be completed via email or Skype if preferred.
During your consultation, you have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you desire, and advice will be provided that is specific to your own individual circumstances. It is important to note that your consultation is complete without obligation, and is conducted in a friendly, informal manner at all times.
Should you choose to proceed with treatment, either at the end of your consultation or when you have had time to consider your options, we will arrange mutually suitable dates, times and locations for your treatment sessions.
The majority of treatments are completed within 2-3 sessions, however, additional sessions may be required depending on your circumstances. All quotations are fixed, therefore if more sessions are needed than originally anticipated, no additional fee is payable.
Real hair follicles vs SMP
What results are realistically achievable?
The result you can expect is directly linked to the skill of your practitioner, and the quality of the pigments that are applied.
Following your treatment, the only people who will find out are those who you choose to tell. clients are able to return to their workplaces, social circles and families with confidence. Many of our clients even choose not to tell their partners or parents. The results are so realistic, our SMP treatments are on a strictly “need to know” basis.
Can SMP conceal scars, alopecia and other imperfections?
Absolutely, yes. Many of our clients have acquired scars and skin blemishes during their lifetime that they wish to conceal. This includes strip and FUE scars caused by hair restoration surgery, other surgical scars, accident-related scars and other imperfections such as burns or skin conditions.
Scalp Micro-Pigmentation is commonly used to conceal alopecia areata, however other forms such as alopecia total are and traction alopecia is also straightforward to camouflage using SMP. When treating alopecia our aim is to provide the client with peace of mind and renewed confidence, regardless of whether or not the real hair returns.

However, for any clients who feel their pigments have faded more than desired, we are there to ensure the final result is exactly as it should be – with no additional treatment costs, guaranteed.
MICROPIGMENTATION FOR VITILAGO
Vitiligo Treatment: Micro pigmentation Finding an effective vitiligo treatment can be very demanding for vitiligo sufferers as there are plenty of options but very few seem to offer long-term and effective results.
One breakthrough vitiligo treatment option has emerged in the form of micro-pigmentation or the camouflage tattoo method. This treatment is usually done on the most obvious and visible parts of the skin like facial skin or neck. Rather than eradicating the spread of vitiligo patches or treating vitiligo, this treatment is aimed only at camouflaging the de-pigmented look of vitiligo patches, i.e. this is only an aesthetic treatment.
Understanding Micro pigmentation The treatment uses an unusual approach of implanting artificial pigments into the skin, i.e. the skin ís outer layer is colored using a special technique. The equipment used during this method is very similar to devices used in specialized tattooing methods. In fact, the method in which the pigments are patterned in and around the vitiligo patches is also similar to the manner in which tattoo ink is manipulated when creating the tattoo designs. This is why this treatment is often dubbed as medical tattooing.
The pigments used here have to be metabolically inert and are different from any kind of tattooing ink. These pigments are immune to the biological changes in the skin or changes induced by external factors, ensuring that the original shades of the pigment are retained for almost a lifetime.
Due to the highly-specialized and demanding nature of this procedure, the expertise and experience of the micro pigmentation technician is critical to the results. The immediate results of this approach and its non-invasive nature have made it a preferred option for many vitiligo sufferers. The procedure is not very expensive and doesn’t require surgical sedation or hospitalization.
Micro pigmentation Limitations
Micro pigmentation vitiligo treatment is usually suggested among people suffering from non-progressive vitiligo, i.e. where new white spots or patches have ceased to surface and the existing patches aren’t gaining in size. Among people with a history of herpes simplex virus infection or those who have tested positive for HIV, micro pigmentation is not recommended. Similarly, people with a medical history of skin problems like
psoriasis are likely to be refused this treatment.
