NJ Scalp Micropigmentation is proud to offer top-level certified master practitioners who create the illusion of a close buzz cut on a bald head or add density and the look of thicker fuller hair on both men and women suffering from thinning or loss of hair. Our clinic has been considered the best SMP in Philadelphia.
SMP in Philadelphia is the #1 non-surgical permanent hair loss solution for men, and even women. Our scalp micropigmentation technicians use special microneedles to apply pigment to the scalp. This application of pigment results in the appearance of very small hair follicles which help thicken and restore the look of a full head of hair in both men and women.
Scalp micropigmentation gives men the look of a buzz cut or 5 o’clock shadow, relieving men of the classic and inevitable male pattern baldness. Say goodbye to that receded hairline guys! We can also treat those with alopecia, as well as those with transplant scarring to camouflage that unsightly scar. SMP in Philadelphia is the only 100% effective solution for hair loss and more.

SMP in Philadelphia (scalp micropigmentation) is a widely popular non-surgical hair loss solution whereby minuscule deposits of pigment simulate hair follicles on the scalp. Scalp micropigmentation, however, is extremely intricate and not a mere “hair tattoo.” We use different pigments and needles to accurately simulate tiny hair follicles.
Scalp micropigmentation is permanent, however, the “dots” or injected pigment lessen in circumference very slightly over time. While this is not technically fading, the scalp will benefit from a touch-up session every 4-6 years. This nearly imperceptible decrease in circumference happens because macrophage cells in the human immune system will gradually break up and disperse pigment from any procedure, albeit extremely slowly.
Expect some redness which will subside after a day or two.
Although each client’s pain sensitivity differs, SMP is much less painful than a traditional tattoo. SMP needles are so thin, some customers say they feel almost nothing. When asked to rate their pain levels, most SMP clients report 1-3 on a scale of 1-10.
Yes, SMP can be removed with an electro-optic Q switched laser, which is used to heat and break up SMP pigmentation for easier absorption by phagocytes in the dermis. SMP is easy to remove because the pigment isn’t deposited as deep as traditional tattoo ink.

No, sorry. Scalp micropigmentation is a cosmetic procedure by nature, so it is rarely ever covered by medical insurance. It’s worth checking with your insurance provider about potential coverage since policies vary as do personal circumstances.
SMP is a non-surgical hair loss solution. Needles deposit pigment below the upper layer of the skin, similar to a body art tattoo. The procedure is very safe when performed by a professional.
Unlike traditional tattooing, scalp micropigmentation pigment is deposited near the epidermal layer rather than deep inside the dermal layer. SMP can be removed by laser much more easily than traditional tattoos.
We recommend always using some sort of sunscreen to retain the ink its longest. Should you choose not to use sunscreen, for the first 30 days you must cover your head with sunscreen or a hat. We have some suggested sunscreens in the aftercare section of our website.
Depending on the level of baldness, first treatment sessions generally take 1-3 hours while the second and third sessions take 1-2 hours. Each session is performed 1-2 weeks apart with the average client receiving 3 sessions.
Aftercare is a very important step in your scalp micropigmentation process. In the first 4 days following treatment, avoid shaving, showers, sweating, scrubbing, shampooing topicals and long term exposure to sunlight. It’s okay to lightly dab the area with wet cloths, but do not soak the head. After 4 days, it’s okay to shower (lightly), shave, and use fragrance free moisturizers. After 10 days, you can resume your normal activities, but it’s still best to avoid long term sunlight for 30 days. The aftercare process for people who get a density treatment is slightly different and can be read more about through the links on our website.
This is a personal preference, but most clients opt for a buzzed look where they shave every 1-3 days.
The cost of SMP for men varies per client. We base the cost on how much of the treatment needs to be applied and by how many sessions are needed per client, which is assessed based on male hair loss. We offer FREE consultations for everyone. During the consultation, we will be able to assess your scalp and from there we can judge approximately how much treatment and how many sessions you will need.
Scalp micropigmentation looks incredibly real, as long as it is applied correctly. Many of our clients say their family, friends, and co-workers say they look younger or something looks different about them, but no one ever knows what it is that has changed and that’s what we want!
No, sorry, scalp micropigmentation will not grow your hair back. However, SMP gives you the look of short hair, a tight buzz-cut, or fuller hair density.
