When you consider any investment, it’s always critical to look at the long term. And the truth is this: over the course of 30 years, hair systems, products, and transplants can easily 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 just $3,500, Scalp International Hairlines highly effective brand of SMP 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.
Scalp micropigmentation cost varies based on how much hair loss each individual has suffered, how much area needs to be covered with our follicle replications, and how experienced & skilled the artist is. Micropigmentation is the most efficient, effective, and affordable solution on the planet for balding men/women, and at Scalp International Hairlines we do our best to make our procedure available to everyone. We have spent many years perfecting the art of SMP, and take pride in the fact that we can now replicate your hair follicle almost perfectly. Although we cannot provide exact costs as every client has a unique scalp with unique requirements, we can give you a very good idea of which range and scale you may fall into. If you’d prefer to know the exact cost, please email us some clear photos of your scalp, or give us a call to setup a free consultation (in person or via facetime).
The cost of your procedure depends on what you need exactly and how much SMP you need done. It is ultimately decided by 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). Every scalp is different. The average client with thinning hair on top and perhaps a receding hairline, can expect to pay around $4500 (USD). Many clients fit this category or close to it. Even those with intact hairlines usually require the same session time to recover lost density. Use $4500 as an average guide, and allow some fluctuation depending on your personal requirements. The price is likely to be reduced if your hair loss is less advanced: 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. The price will increase if you have scars to conceal, alopecia to camouflage, hair to sift through, or a massive area to fill in.
Ultimately, the cost of your micropigmentation procedure will depend upon the amount of work that needs to be done, along with the experience level and quality of work of the artist – this is also crucial. 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 regarded as some of the top SMP artists in the world, masters at creating the most authentic follicle replication possible.
