What’s Scalp Micropigmentation?

Scalp micropigmentation or SMP is a non-invasive treatment that entails depositing pigments into the scalp with the use of microneedles. The effect is a high-quality replication of one’s natural hair follicles, hairline, and hair color. Here at OM Spa, we have trained and licensed specialists that excel at this intricate procedure. 

Duration and Maintenance

It takes 2-3 sessions between 10-14 days to complete the look. Each session lasts for 2-3 hours, depending on the work administered. It requires no aftercare and sparse maintenance of touch up between 4-6 years, if necessary. Our scalp micropigmentation technicians in Chicago use cosmetic pigmentation and state-of-the-art equipment to achieve that natural-looking hairline. 

A Treatment  for Everyone

Scalp micropigmentation has many names. It can also be called a hair tattoo, head tattoo, scalp tattoo, scalp pigmentation, hairline tattoo, and many others. The general purpose of performing a hair micropigmentation in Chicago is to create an appearance of thicker hair, as well as a more defined full front, side, and rear hairlines. This treatment is particularly beneficial for individuals who experience a full or partial balding of the head. 


For men who have a naturally shaved head or have no hair at all, scalp hair micropigmentation is a great solution to have that close shave look or buzz cut hairstyle. Some of our clients also avail of the beard micropigmentation from our clinic in Chicago to complete the look. As for women, it can hide patches where the scalp is highly visible through the hair.

Purposes of a Scalp Micropigmentation

However, more than for aesthetic purposes, scalp micropigmentation is also an effective way to camouflage scars from surgical procedures or accidents and to hide unwanted physical marks including burns and birthmarks. Overall, the end result is a more youthful look that gives that extra confidence booster for one’s self-esteem.

Best Candidates

The best candidates for a scalp micropigmentation are men and women who want more density in their hair, people with shaved heads, individuals who suffer from alopecia, unappealing physical marks, and scars on the head, and people who are not qualified for hair transplantation procedures.
