Scalp Micropigmentation Cost
The cost of having an SMP treatment varies by client and condition. On average the cost of having an SMP treatment, in Toronto, is approximately $3500 CDN. The cost can go up or down depending on the client’s needs, the amount of work that needs to be completed, and the size and shape of the scalp. At Scalp Esthetica, the cost includes consultation, numbing, 3 treatments, and 12 months guarantee.
Why Only 12 Months Guarantee?
Simple, if you are satisfied with the results, and the microdots have not faded within a year, the treatment will last you 7-10 years before you would ever need a touch up. You can get a lifetime guarantee, however, the yearly costs of creams and lotions necessary for this offer amounts to the same as having a touch up in 7-10 years, thus a lifetime guarantee is not necessary.
Why is SMP Scalp Tattooing so Expensive?
Expensive is a relative word, very subjective and needs to be put into perspective. Hair transplants can cost you up to $50,000. It is a very painful, slow process, with no guarantee, and most likely the hair will fall out in the near future. At Scalp Esthetica, we’ve seen the transplant failures, and the scars left behind, and use SMP to help with Hair Transplant Scar Camouflage. We’ve also seen some hair transplant success; however, we’ve used SMP to help add hair density to Men and Women to give the appearance of fullness. We’ve also seen how much men and women spend on lotions and potions (ie. Rogaine, Minoxidil, Propecia, etc.) only to see minimal or no results. SMP is guaranteed, and you see results during and immediately after the treatment; results last 7-10 years, with no scarring and no pain. So, Scalp Micropigmentation prices may vary, but the results speak for themselves.
Scalp Micropigmentation Reviews
SMP reviews are very hard to come by because this is a very personal and private procedure. Most clients do not want to tell the world that they have had this sort of treatment completed, just as most men and women do not want the world to know they do Botox or Dermal Fillers. At Scalp Esthetica we have past clients that are more than happy to speak to potential clients to give them their personal experience and views on their SMP treatment.

Micro Tattooing Scalp Toronto
There are a lot of names for Scalp Micropigmentation, including Scalp Tattoo, Hair Tattoo, Medical Hair Replication, Hair Follicle Simulation, Micro Scalp Pigmentation, etc. The names may differ as this industry starts to grow worldwide; however the procedures are relatively the same.
Scalp Micropigmentation Training
Unfortunately, because this industry is new and expanding worldwide at a very fast rate, there are companies that do not have enough experience to train anyone in SMP as they themselves do not have enough experience to do the treatment or haven’t had enough clients to get the experience necessary to train. In Canada, there are only 2 companies that we would recommend getting SMP training from and those are Vancouver Paramedical in Vancouver, BC and Scalp Aesthetics who offer online and one-on-one training.
Scalp Pigmentation Technique
The scalp micropigmentation technique is very simple, if conducted by a well trained SMP Artist. The artist uses the finest needles and the best pigments to apply pigmented hair follicles to the scalp to give the appearance of a freshly shaved head of hair or to add density to thinning hair. The three most important aspects of the Best SMP clinics in Toronto are: 1) Experience 2) Needles 3) Pigment.
Scalp Micropigmentation Disadvantages and Risks
There are disadvantages to any medical treatment; however, SMP disadvantages are relatively minimal. For SMP treatments, the client will have to shave their heads, the closer the shave, the better and more realistic the results. For SMP Hair Density Treatments the longer the hair the better the camouflage and better the results. The pigments used at Scalp Esthetica are organic, safe and do not change color, however, over time it does fade to a charcoal.

Scalp Tattoo Pain
Next to Scalp Micropigmentation pricing, scalp tattoo pain is the second most commonly asked question. Having an SMP treatment is nothing like having a classic tattoo. There is almost no pain and at Scalp Esthetica we’ve had had many clients fall asleep in the chair while being worked on. We use a medical grade numbing cream which is applied to the scalp before and after the treatment, however, it is more for comfort than for pain management. The treatment is rated at 2 out of 10, 10 being the worst pain in the world.
