Scalp Micropigmentation Cost

The Smartest & Most Affordable Hair Loss Solution

So you discovered SMP, but now wondering how much does scalp micropigmentation cost? When you consider any investment, it’s always critical to look at the long term. The truth is this: over the course of 30 years, hair systems, products, and transplants can pluck over $100,000 from your wallet. Concealers and drugs aren’t much better, usually costing you $18,000-$62,000 over the same period.
Scalp Micropigmentation is not only more attractive as a hair loss solution, but as an investment. In fact, at an average cost of $3,500, is much less expensive over the long term than paying for regular haircuts. This is the best investment you’ll ever make, an investment in your appearance and self-confidence.

How Much Does Scalp Micropigmentation Cost?

Scalp micropigmentation cost varies on a few factors. We need to consider each individuals hair loss case. How much hair loss has the individual suffered? How much area needs coverage? But also, which artist do you prefer and how experienced & skilled the artist is.
Micropigmentation is the most efficient, effective, and affordable solution. This solution is for men and women experiencing balding or thinning hair. At Scalp International Hairlines, we do our best to make our procedure affordable to everyone. Our artists have spent many years perfecting the art of SMP. We take pride in the fact that we can now replicate your hair follicle almost perfectly.
Unfortunately, we can’t provide exact costs as every client has a unique scalp with unique requirements. But, we can give you a very good idea of which range and scale you may fall into. If you’d to know the exact cost, we’re happy to quote your case. You can email us some clear photos of your scalp. Alternatively, call us to setup a free consultation (in person or via facetime).
We also have financing options available once you get your custom quote.

How Much Does The SMP Procedure Cost?

Average Scalp Micropigmentation Cost

Every scalp is different. The average client with thinning hair on top and a receding hairline, can expect to pay around $2500 (USD). Many clients fit this category or close to it. Even those with intact hairlines usually need coverage to recover lost density. Use $2500 as an average guide, and allow some fluctuation depending on your personal case.
The price is likely cheaper if your hair loss is less advanced. For example, if you have full density but need a slight reconstruction of your hairline. Or if you just need to fill in an area on your crown. However, the price will increase if you have scars to conceal, alopecia to camouflage, hair to sift through, or a massive area to fill in.

It Depends

The cost of your procedure depends on what you need exactly and how much SMP you need done. Also it depends on how many hours of session time you require and how much pigment is necessary for your particular scalp, and any other special requirements you may have (scars, alopecia, sifting through hair). It also depends on the experience level and quality of work of the artist you choose– this is also crucial.

Don't Cheap Out

Price shopping for the best deal isn’t a good idea when it comes to your head, just like any type of art or business. We strongly advise you not to look for the “cheapest or best deal” out there, as this is a recipe for disaster. The more experienced and skilled the artist, the more you should expect to pay. Our artists are recognized as some of the top SMP artists in the world. We are masters at creating the most authentic follicle replication possible.
