Brisbane & Gold Coast
Here in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Medici Cappelli’s Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) treatment, also known as cosmetic hair follicle replication, involves replicating follicles that appear to be tiny hairs on your scalp.
Scalp micropigmentation is a head tattooing procedure that can be used in between your existing hair follicles to create a thickening effect or it can also be used on a bald area to create a shaven look.
Micropigmentation for the scalp is the process of ingraining tiny follicle shapes, creating the illusion that the scalp is more densely populated with hair than it really is.
Our dermal therapist applies the ink to the desired areas using the finest instruments in the micropigmentation field. Patients are able to achieve the look they want in 2-3 sittings and enjoy immediate results after the first sitting at our Gold Coast clinic. Each micropigmentation session takes about 3 hours to complete, depending on how large the treatment area is.
The second treatment will take place about a week after the first, with the third, and any other sessions thereafter, being schedule 3 – 5 weeks apart.
Micropigmentation treatments deliver natural-looking results using pigments that match your natural hair colour. We go to great lengths to ensure the colour is correct and apply the pigment in a way that looks completely natural. When the pigment is applied to the scalp where the hair has been shaven by a razor, it will give the appearance of growing stubble. When micropigmentation is applied between existing hair, it gives the appearance of having more hair follicles.
Men and women who are confronted with androgenetic alopecia can use the scalp micropigmentation technique as a solution to their hair loss. This hair tattooing treatment is quick with minimal discomfort and the results are seen immediately. In our hair clinic, a minimal amount of time is required in the chair for scalp micropigmentation.
This specialised technique can also be used to disguise scarring alopecia or for scar revision post FUT or FUE surgery.

Scalp micropigmentation techniques are designed to create natural, undetectable results. When this procedure is performed by a trained professional, others will not be able to detect that you’ve undergone treatment.
Once you’ve undergone a series of treatments, you can expect the results to last for several years. Over time, the colour may lighten slightly, which will warrant a touch up session, but this will only be necessary much later.
This is a non-invasive procedure, which means no downtime will be required. Directly after your session, your scalp may be slightly red for 2 – 3 days but it doesn’t require you to take time off work unless you really wanted to. Many clients will wear headwear should they feel self-conscious about the redness.
Micropigmentation ink is slightly different to tattoo ink in the sense that it doesn’t contain any additional additives and colourants that would cause it to fade over time. The colour may become lighter but this happens very gradually, if at all. Scalp micropigmentation treatments also involve different equipment, which is why the results are different.
Patients with gray hair can still benefit from this procedure. However, it’s recommended that you cut your hair to a buzzed length before your session because this will give your hair a darker appearance. Gray hair only becomes prominent once it starts growing, so by cutting it shorter, the pigments will blend in more easily. We will also make sure that we use a gray-scale pigment to ensure optimal blending.
Exercise or any other activities that could cause you to sweat should rather be avoided for 4 – 5 days after your session at Medici Capelli clinic.
Scalp micropigmentation is a tattooing procedure that doesn’t affect the existing hair follicles, which means it won’t cause hair loss.
