Scalp Micropigmentation New York Reviews
Rated 5 ★★★★★ on Google


  • Pete Cabanas

    I waited a year before posting a review to make sure I was still happy with the scalp micropigmentation.

    I’m totally happy with it. Mike was great. I flew out from Chicago to New York 3 times for the 3 sessions by Mike at Skalp New York.

    I’d fly out again and probably will a year from now for a touch-up. So far no touch-up needed.

    It looks so real that I’ve never gotten a single comment about the procedure in the last year. Do I still miss having hair? Yes, everyday. But this is so much better than having a huge tract of open land on my head.

    Best compliment I can give Mike/Skalp is that I rarely wear my hat now.

    Many thanks, Mike

  • Charles Bryant

    Micropigmentation by skalp NY was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It was a noninvasive procedure that gave my confidence back. I recommend it to anyone dealing with hair loss and/or balding. A BONUS IS THE COST IS MINIMAL.

  • KR Robinson

    Mike’s customer service was stellar, puts you at ease, shares pictures of other clients. The procedure was smooth, no issues whatsoever and it looked so good that I almost didn’t need a second visit. Highly recommend him if you plan to do the procedure

  • Miguel Ducasse

    Felt a bit worried about heading out there and committing to the procedure wasn’t sure what the out cone wouldve been but ones a I met mike and the staff I felt at home nice low key private location and friendly place. Looking at things now I’m glad I went the Skalp for the procedure it went great I’m very happy I made the effort to go and not talk my self out of going I look great 😊 thanks mike!

  • Bob Pasquale

    Mike at the NYC location is the best in the business. He’s very accommodating and takes his time with you to get the right look before he starts. He even does less than you want just in case you ask for more than is needed so there is room to get to your goal, instead of overdoing it the 1st round then it’s irreversible! He was polite, punctual, clean and neat. He really cares about his work and it shows.
    I wish I would of done this sooner as I’ve gained my confidence back and look a lot younger. No one noticed it until my 4th session, my wife asked if I done something and she wasn’t sure exactly what. When I tell people they are amazed.
    Thank you Mike and I will refer anyone I can to you!!

  • Scott Levin

Frequently Asked Questions

Scalp Micropigmentation (also known as SMP or a hair tattoo) is a non-surgical hair loss treatment where pigments are deposited into the scalp to replicate the natural appearance of real hair follicles, giving you a new hairline and the look of a full head of hair that has been closely-shaven or to add density to thin hair.

Camouflage scarring from previous hair transplant surgeries and boost the visual effect of a hair transplant.

Restore the look of a full head of hair on even a completely bald head due to alopecia.

Make thin hair appear a lot thicker by camouflaging the scalp. By not seeing so much skin on the scalp your hair appears thicker.

Scalp Micropigmentation, when done by an experienced practitioner, gives hyper-realistic results. Clients say that even up close in the mirror, they can’t even tell the difference between their real hair follicles and the treatment.

Scalp Micropigmentation is classed as a permanent treatment. Although the results are permanent, they can fade slightly over the years to a lighter color. We recommend a short touch-up every 3-6 years.

The price depends on your level of hair loss. You can see a visual price guide on our website here, but we do recommend visiting for a free consultation or sending pictures to get an accurate quote.

Scalp Micropigmentation takes place over 3 sessions and a standard session lasts 1-4 hours depending on the amount of area that requires treatment.

There is one week between sessions 1 & 2. Then a 3rd session takes place 1 month later.

Colour and density are gradually built up over 3 sessions to ensure a perfect colour match and blend with your existing hair.

We always start slightly too light with the colour on session 1, then make small adjustments in the following sessions to get the perfect result.

The hairline design is a very personal choice. A hairline design is drawn on before each session starts, your practitioner will guide and work closely with you to ensure you get the exact hairline you want. You can decide exactly how soft & natural or sharp & defined the hairline is.

Skalp has been the Scalp Micropigmentation industry leader for over 10 years and has changed the lives of over 20,000 happy clients. Skalp practitioners are known worldwide for being the most experienced practitioners in the industry and producing the most natural results possible. It is easy for every clinic to claim to be the best but we have the reputation, reviews and testimonials to prove it.

Skalp practitioners are trained for 3 months before performing a treatment compared to the industry standard of 3-5 days.

When your Scalp Micropigmentation treatment is carried out by a Skalp® practitioner you can relax knowing you have the most experienced practitioners in the industry performing your treatment, Scalp Micropigmentation is a highly skilled treatment and should only be carried out by a highly trained and experienced professional.

When SMP is performed by an inexperienced or undertrained practitioner you may not get the desired result.

No, Scalp Micropigmentation is a highly specialised treatment, the technique, machine, needles and pigment we use are all different from what is used in a regular tattoo. An SMP practitioner could not perform a regular tattoo and a regular tattooist could not perform an SMP treatment. Sadly we have seen quite a few examples of a regular tattooist attempting to perform an SMP treatment without the correct training

Yes. We offer a finance option where you can split your treatment cost into affordable monthly payments, with 0% interest available at some clinics.

You can apply to finance your SMP treatment here.

The pigment we use for treatment is designed just for Scalp Micropigmentation hair tattoos, it does not change colour like a regular tattoo. The colour will get lighter over the years, but will not change colour after any period of time.

You can expect to see visible results and your new hairline instantly. Straight after each session, there may be some redness. Redness usually lasts 24 hours after each session. We gradually build up the density and make small adjustments to the colour and hairline shape over 3 sessions to get the perfect result.

In most cases, yes. For a standard SMP hair tattoo, you will need to shave your hair using hair clippers, a facial shaver, or a razor. We recommend the best length to shave your hair for your treatment to look natural would be a 0.5-grade length or shorter. Of course, we encourage you to experiment with what shaving routine looks and works best for you.

Scalp Micropigmentation can work on long hair to give the appearance of thicker hair if you have enough remaining hair. A thickening treatment works the same as on a shaved head by mimicking the appearance of hair follicles so that less of the scalp is visible. If there is not enough remaining hair for the treatment to blend with, we may advise that you would need to shave.

Scalp Micropigmentation Density treatment

Yes, Scalp Micropigmentation works very well on women with thin or thinning hair, by camouflaging the scalp and not seeing so much skin it gives the appearance of thicker, fuller hair. Click here for more info on SMP for women.

Scalp Micropigmentation works with any hair colour, as when any hair colour is closely shaved down to the follicle you are left with a grey shade. We match the treatment to how dark your shade is. So it makes no difference if your hair is grey or turns grey after the treatment. Click here for more info on Scalp Micropigmentation and grey hair.

After 5 years your Scalp Micropigmentation hair tattoo will look a lighter version of how it did when it was first done. You can then decide if you want to have a short touch-up to return the treatment to its original colour when you first had it done, or you may reach a certain age and let it keep fading.

Yes, If you have had hair transplant surgery then you may have been left with scars. We can camouflage all forms of Hair transplant scarring, Strip/Punch/FUE, so you can wear your hair as short as you like.

Not only can we cover your scars but we can also enhance the results of your transplant by adding density thin/thinning hair.

Scar Camouflage with SMP

Yes, there is a 12-month guarantee from your first session for full treatments, just in case any area of the treatment is not quite perfect. Simply give us a call and we will book you in for one extra session at no extra charge. However, any style or color changes to your original treatment are chargeable at an hourly rate.

The shaved hair look is a style that has stood the test of time. It’s easy to maintain, looks smart, and is effortlessly cool. If you are not sure if a shaved head will suit you, we offer free virtual hairline mock-ups to give you an idea of how you will look with the treatment and your new hairline.

Yes it is totally safe and non-invasive. The treatment only goes half as deep into the skin as a regular tattoo. We have never seen any adverse effects due to a hair tattoo.

As Scalp Micropigmentation is non-surgical, like a regular tattoo, it does not affect the real hair follicles and cannot cause hair loss.

No, for most of our clients the pain is minimal and described as a lot less painful than a regular tattoo. No pain medication is needed and any discomfort is only during the actual Scalp Micropigmentation hair tattoo treatment.

Following the treatment, the treated area will look slightly red for roughly 24 hours, a lot of our clients go back to work the next day. Scalp Micropigmentation requires no downtime as it is a non-invasive treatment. We do recommend you avoid rubbing your head or sweating heavily for 4 days after each session. Click here to view our aftercare guide.

Compared to a hair transplant that can take up to one year to recover and see the results, the results from Scalp Micropigmentation are instant.

We know that when you have decided you want the treatment, you’ll be keen to get started ASAP, however, our clinics are very busy and can get booked up for a few weeks.

Scalp Micropigmention is reversible. We’ve never had a customer to date want to remove the treatment however the removal process would be similar to that of tattoo removal. The difference is that Scalp Micropigmentation is only situated within the 2nd dermal skin layer compared to a regular tattoo being twice as deep. So a Scalp Micropigmentation treatment is a lot easier to remove and can be fully removed with a laser within two sessions. We can imagine our clients looking to change their hairline, perhaps soften the hairline or maybe even recede slightly as they become older.

After 3-6 years you may feel the need for a touch-up. Whether you want to adjust your hairline, freshen it up or just fancy going a bit darker. Touch-ups are charged at an hourly rate which is £300+VAT, ($450)(€300). A touch-up is usually only one hour long, sometimes two hours depending on the size of the area needing treatment.

Yes of course! Our clinics are always busy and we are happy to arrange for you to meet another client that has finished their treatment or are mid-way through their treatment.
