What is SMP®?

SMP® is a specialist application that is applied directly to the scalp to replicate the natural appearance of real hair follicles. SMP® is widely regarded as the most advanced treatment of its kind available in the world today, using pigments and application methods that are specifically designed to create the most realistic illusion of hair possible.

How does SMP® work?

SMP® requires the practitioner to apply highly specialised pigments using a multitide of different needle sizes, penetration depths, angles, pigment colours and distribution rates depending on the specific area of the scalp being treated at the time, the skin tone of the individual and the desired final appearance.

The SMP technique is a highly advanced form of cosmetic pigmentation. The needles used for SMP do not penetrate as deeply as they do with some other techniques, and we use tested pigments, not tattoo inks that bleed or change colour. We use computer controlled microfine needles in triple clusters to achieve the guaranteed consistency of results that the SMP technique demands.

A period of more than 10 years has been used to fully understand, assess and gain expert knowledge and technical know-how of exactly what happens to the treated area of scalp over this sufficiently long period of time. Clinical trials supported with clinical evidence were absolutely necessary in order to successfully take our innovative hair loss treatment from an initial concept to establishing a fully developed clinical process that ensures consistently flawless results.

The SMP® technique process itself uses state of the art computerised equipment. We use a range of specialist, single-use sterile micro needles to penetrate the dermal layer of the skin. We apply a variety of different shades of specifically blended pigments to guarantee consistent replication of the specific size, shape and density of hair replications and micro hairs. We use different SMP® techniques over the course of treatment to achieve outstanding natural looking results every time.

SMP® follows a specifically developed process, whilst utilising a range of different techniques to penetrate the dermis of the skin. This creates the simulation of real looking hair follicles and micro hairs, that are replicated consistently and effectively. The replication of each hair follicle is a detailed process, each one being treated as an individual task. Only by applying this level of attention to detail can the most outstanding, consistent results be achieved.

Why choose SMP® and HIS Hair Clinic?

SMP® is a process, usually applied over 2 or 3 sessions to create the most natural appearance possible. As the original developers of this technique, no other company understands this process as well as we do and simply cannot offer the same level of experience as a fully trained HIS practitioner.

All our treatments are conducted in a safe, sterile environment using single use, triple cluster microfine needles of our own unique specification. Our pigments are also especially formulated by us in more than 100 different shades to achieve the perfect blend of shades to exactly match your remaining ‘real’ hair.

With HIS Hair Clinic you are entrusting your Scalp MicroPigmentation treatment to the very best, most experienced and most highly regarded team in the business.

MHT® – A highly advanced form of SMP®

The MHT® technique was developed by HIS Hair Clinic many years before the term “SMP®” was conceived. As the worlds first SMP® service, MHT® has evolved considerably over the last decade to become the most advanced form of SMP® available, anywhere in the world.

Our pigments maintain their definition, unlike other pigments that often turn green or blue or spread out within the dermis of the skin over a short period of time.

MHT® is also completely flexible, enabling you to not only create exactly the hairline and hair density you always wanted, but also to adapt and refresh the treatment later on in life as your circumstances and preferences change.

We remain the only clinic in the world to offer our own in-house laser removal service for any future alterations you may require. In the event of this facility not being accessible due to your location, we are able to provide advice and recommendations. Furthermore, unlike our competitors pigments that can take up to ten laser sessions to remove, MHT® pigments usually require just one session.

MHT® is widely regarded as the safest and most effective SMP® treatment available, backed by the number one SMP® provider. Whatever your requirements, we provide a service that is quite simply unmatched by any other company, anywhere in the world.
