Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp Micro -


As the name infers, Scalp Micropigmentation or SMP or MPG is a non-surgical procedure applying natural and medical-grade pigments to the scalp to create the look of a stubble on your bare skin. Simply put, this procedure will leave you with the appearance of a shaved head as opposed to being completely bald in certain areas of their scalp. SMP is NOT a Tatoo. The pigment depth placement required for SMP is several layers less than a traditional normal tattoo requires.

So what is the big deal in a hair restoration like this?

It is all about placing the right pigment at the right depth. If the needle penetrates to the mid-dermis or deeper into the hypodermis (the fat layer), it creates a blurred impression or a “blow-out”. If the practitioner goes too shallow (epidermis), the pigment will simply disappear over time.

Once done the correct way, this hair transplant procedure should be undetectable and retain its color for a long period of time.

At Evolved Clinics Gurgaon, Delhi and Lucknow, we ensure Scalp Micropigmentation is only performed by our SMP specialist or our surgeon. Our team is also specially trained to use SMP as a combination with hair transplant, especially relevant for patients who do not have enough donor but require more denisty.


Scalp Micropigmentation is an effective option in the following 5 types of situation:

  • Scalp Scarring from any reason. The ink is applied over the scar as well as above and below the scar to blend the scar into the surrounding hairs.
  • Female hair loss with early thinning who don’t need hair transplant. Shading of the scalp using SMP improves coverage in thinning areas.
  • Men and women who have previously had hair transplant surgery but unable to achieve the required “visual density”.
  • Men who have aggresive balding and have insufficient donor hairs to get a hair transplant done. These men can achieve a natural buzz-cut result.
  • Suitable men and women who do not like to undergo hair transplant surgery.

More About Scalp Micropigmentation

How is the SMP procedure performed at Evolved Clinics in Gurgaon, Delhi and Lucknow?

Your SMP journey is expected as follows,

  • Consultation: To start with, our hair treatment doctor will assess your hair loss through a consult and recommend you a customized treatment plan. Your hairline will be simulated to match your desired look. Irrespective of your skin tone, we are able to match the shade of our pigment to perfectly fit your scalp.
  • Preparation: As you may expect, it's best to shave your hair as close to your scalp as possible so that your SMP specialist is better able to fill in the problem areas.
  • First Session: The 1st session will lay the foundation of replicated hair follicles. Post session, you will notice a discernible difference and a full look emerge. SMP typically takes 2-4 hours per session depending on your degree of hair loss.
  • Subsequent Sessions: Most patients can expect 2-3 sessions to complete their SMP treatment depending on the extent of hair loss/ scarring. These hair restoration treatments are usually spaced 14-21 days apart. For these sessions, we add additional layers of density to create the appearance of full, short hair with a natural look.
  • After care: After your final hair implant, we will provide you with aftercare instructions, which are fairly simple to follow. This includes no direct sun exposure for approximately 3-4 weeks and avoiding chlorinated water (hot tubs/ pools) for around 10 days.
  • Back to work: Being non-invasie hair transplant procedure, SMP requires no down time with benefit of immediate hair restoration results. In most cases, you will not need to take any extended time away from work.
  • Touch-up Session: We expect the strength of the color to last 2-3 years. The pigment contains no additives and therefore will only lighten, not discolor over an extended time. When this occurs, you can undergo a small “touch up” session to secure many more years of your style.

Does this hair transplant procedure hurt? Any side-effects?

For most patients, the pain is minimal and it's consistently less painful than traditional tattoos. After your session, you won't experience any further discomfort.

The scalp may be a bit reddish for 2-3 days post session, so we recommend wearing a hat after treatment if you wish to conceal the redness.

Can I still use Finasteride and/or Minoxidil after my treatment?

You can continue using Finasteride during and after their SMP. Topical minoxidil should be temporarily suspended during the course of treatment and for 30 days post session. This is to ensure the proper healing and settling of pigment without interference of the chemicals found in Minoxidil foam.

How much will the SMP hair transplant cost?

It really depends on the size of your scalp tattoo and number of hours taken to operate, the complexity of your procedure, and the number of follow-up appointments required. To give you an indication, a small MPG session can cost around INR 35,000 and a large MPG session can cost around INR 100,000.

How long do the results last?

After completion of your hair restoration treatment (2-3 sessions) a client should expect the strength of the colour to last for many years. Over a longer term, a client will very gradually begin to notice slight lightening (not discolour) of the treatment. When this occurs they can undergo a brief “touch up” session to restore any fading and secure many more years of their style.

Can I still get a hair transplant surgery done?

Hair transplant surgery can be performed prior to this technique but also after the technique if further hairs are required or desired. Because we are trained hair transplant surgeons, SMP can be offered as part of a range of therapies to manage any future hair loss.
