How much does Scalp Micropigmentation cost?

For every man and woman considering investing in hair tattoo to camouflage hair loss, the cost of Scalp Micropigmentation is a question that needs answering.

Male Scalp Micropigmentation Cost

Right from the start, we need to clarify that scalp micropigmentation is a cosmetic procedure used to treat baldness. SMP is not a method for treating hair loss in men or women but rather for making your present hair look fuller. Scalp Micropigmentation is getting a tattoo on the skin of your scalp to cover bald or thinning spots. But it's not just any ordinary tattoo. It is a permanent concealer that plays a pivotal role in getting confidence back. Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-surgical treatment that offers appealing and affordable camouflage, effectively hiding unsightly hair loss conditions. And you want to know what a scalp micropigmentation cost is. 


For men and women in Bristol, Bath, Cardiff, and surrounding communities in the South West of England battling hair loss, Fliger Scalp Micropigmentation Clinic is the best place to help reconstruct their natural looking hairline. So how much does this cost?


The clue lies in determining the extent of hair loss and the area that needs treatment. To measure the degree of male baldness that needs concealing, we use a hair loss system called the Norwood Scale, the most widely recognized classification system for measuring the extent of Male Pattern Baldness. The scale was developed by doctors O'Tar Norwood and Milton Hamilton in the 1960s and 70s for use with men experiencing androgenic alopecia. Each number on the scale represents a different amount of hair loss and often occurs in chronological order, i.e., an individual will go from having a Norwood Class I to a Norwood Class II and so on.


The entry Scalp Micropigmentation cost for male treatments ranges between £200 and £400 per session. It is the price to treat a slight recession of the hairline around the temples (aka mature hairline).


When the first signs of significant bolding appear, and the male hairline starts to become deeply recessed at both temples, the Scalp Micropigmentation cost per session varies between £400 and £700. Here we are talking about cases when the hairline has started to recede, and the crown isn't too far behind.


Scalp Micropigmentation cost ranges between £700 and £1200 when the hair thinning is the most significant and there is sparse hair or no hair on the vertex. You can still see the two bald areas divided by a strip of hair that bonds to the remaining on both sides of the scalp hair.  


In the most severe stages, when the two bald areas join together without any patch of hair in between, the Male Scalp Micropigmentation cost fluctuates between £1200 and £2000. There may still be some hair on the sides of the head, but the crown and front of the head are mainly bald.

Female Scalp Micropigmentation Cost

Female Pattern hair loss often differs from Male Pattern Hair Loss, so we need to use other measures to predict the Female Scalp Micropigmentation Cost. To start, we need to determine the extent of female pattern baldness. Considering the severity of balding, we have three Female Scalp Micropigmentation Cost Bands here at Fliger Scalp Micropigmentation.


The Female Scalp Micropigmentation Treatment Cost between £400 and £800 will be applied when the partition in the middle of the head is starting to become visibly wider, and the thinning is mild and not much noticeable.


When the hair loss is moderate, and the female scalp on the top of the head or crown starts to show up noticeably, the cost of Scalp Micropigmentation oscillates between £800 and £1500. 


In cases where hair is significantly reduced on the top of the head and the partition is excessively exposed, Female Scalp Micropigmentation prices range from £1500 to £2000.

Why do the Scalp Micropigmentation costs vary?

Scalp Micropigmentation Treatment is a gradual procedure that is done over two or more sessions. After the last session, the outcome can be seen, and the amount of required sessions is always established individually with each client.

The main reason for the variations in the Scalp Micropigmentation cost lies in the amount of time it takes per session, which is dictated by the size of the area that needs treating, desired result and the density of existing hair.
