Let’s face it. Scalp micropigmentation is an investment. Whether it is expensive or dirt cheap depends a lot on the value that you place on your appearance, self-esteem, confidence, appearance, and personal style. Every scalp micropigmentation service comes at a cost, and those services and costs vary from person to person, depending on countless circumstances.

SMP is not a one-size-fits-all blanket proposition

Every client comes to us with a different backstory, different needs, and different hair loss experiences. Coming up with an estimated cost of scalp micropigmentation for you requires a lot more about you and your goals. For example, scalp micropigmentation services include several different options that you can choose as one-offs or as part of a broader plan. As a general rule, the investment involved increases as you work your way down this shortlist of options.

  • Covering up scars
  • Altering a receding hairline while blending into your natural hair
  • Filling in the top of your head while creating new hairlines and blending with natural hair
  • Scalp micropigmentation around and across your entire scalp.

There’s nothing typical about you, and there’s no such thing as a typical client. If you’re looking for a ballpark cost to achieve what a typical client is looking for, consider something in the range of $2,000 to $4,000.

What drives the cost of scalp micropigmentation?

A full head of hair contains more than 100,000 hair follicles. Our trained technicians use advanced technology to pigment your scalp or isolated areas of your scalp thousands of times to achieve your goals, 1,250 times per square inch, or more. Other factors that affect the cost of treatment include the location and size of the area to be treated, your skin type, the presence, size, and location of any scarring. We determine how many sessions you need to achieve your goals, the density of any existing hair we’ll blend into, and the density you’re looking to achieve (the wet shave versus the classic fade).

There’s a price; then there’s value

The best way to answer the question, “Is scalp micropigmentation expensive,” is to let us put together a quote for you based on your personal goals and circumstances. Then you can look at the price tag we provide for the services we propose and consider the value proposition we present. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind.

In as little as three to four hours, depending on the service you receive, you’ll receive a permanent and immediate solution for your hair loss, without ever having to worry about or pay for Rogaine again, and without ever having to worry about the fit and appearance of your hair unit. That hair unit? Could it be cheaper upfront than scalp micropigmentation? Yes, it could be. But where’s the value in it if you’re always concerned about it appearing unnatural and worrying about how it’s fitting or sitting on your head and with your remaining hair?

Is it expensive? We hate to duck the question, but the most accurate answer we can give you is that it depends. Tell us your goals, and let us tell you what it’ll take to achieve them. Then we’ll work together to come up with a plan and a valued proposition that makes sense.
