Our Scalp Micropigmentation Treatments

Firstly, rest assured that Scalp Micropigmentation, or SMP, is NOT surgery. SMP is the generic name for a lightly invasive process that uses tiny ink impressions placed on the scalp to create the look of a full, robust hairline cut very closely. Each impression resembles an individual hair follicle, and the effect is so realistic and low-maintenance that some clients choose to have the procedure even before they experience thinning or baldness.
This is not a tattoo! The only similarity is that colour is applied into your skin, so if you see ANY tattoo studio or artist offering a similar service, without the specific qualifications, knowledge and insurances, you are open to many a risk.  SMP is an entirely different technique practiced by trained SMP professionals and using uniquely different pigments. It utilises different techniques with purpose specific, industry leading equipment.

How much will it cost

Please see our pricing guide below. Due to the nature of SMP, it is difficult to accurately quote for your treatment without a face-to-face consultation. We therefore always recommend an initial consultation before booking SMP with us. The cost for all consultations is £40.00, and if you do decide to go ahead this is redeemable against your treatment.

Scalp Micropigmentation Components

A thorough consultation is carried out before any treatment here at Cambridge Contour Clinic. It is an opportunity for us to fully discuss your specific concerns, run through a health questionnaire to ensure you are suitable for treatment, and answer any questions you may have

Our fully trained Scalp Micropigmentation Artist will work with you in choosing the style, size, colour and shape of your desired look.  After which our Scalp Micropigmentation Artist will diligently, by hand, craft perfect imprints of pigment to replicate naturally full hair follicles, mimicking a full head of hair, natural hairline or masking the thinning of hair


Scalp Micropigmentation is minimally invasive, and therefore the healing period is relatively quick. You are able to get back to your day to day activities immediately after your treatment, with each session being visibly healed within 5-7 days. The first day following a session, you will experience obvious inflammation of the scalp. It may be reddish in appearance with a slight tenderness when touched, with this fading by the second or third day. Micro scabs will then form on the treated area and the pigments will appear more vivid, and these generally last a few days before they naturally exfoliate. You must resist the urge to pick any scabs as this will tamper with the healing process and may cause the pigments to heal patchy. Some itchiness should likewise be expected due to the drying of the area and the emergence of new skin. It takes approximately 4-6 weeks for the pigments to fully settle in the skin. Please note that actual recovery periods of clients will vary, and this is an approximate duration of the process


All our treatments here at Cambridge Contour Clinic conclude with aftercare advice, specific to the treatment received. This will aid you in getting the absolute most out of any treatment given, and allow you to fully reap the benefits in the days/weeks to follow.

Additional Sessions

SMP is rarely completed in one session, and usually 2-3 sessions are required to fully complete the treatment. A minimum of 10 days are required between each session
