FAQ

What is Scalp Micro Pigmentation?

Scalp Micropigmentation is an innovative, non-surgical hair loss solution that replicates the

appearance of your own natural hair follicles. CALVA practitioners apply a cosmetic pigmentaion (ink) to

the scalp with micro-fine needles to create thousands of tiny impressions, restoring the appearance of

hair.

Who is a candidate for Scalp Micropigmentation?

  • Men and women wanting the appearance of added hair density

  • People with shaved heads that desire hairline definition

  • Alopecia sufferers

  • Those who want to camouflage burns, scars or birthmarks

  • Non-candidates for hair transplantation

How much does Scalp Micropigmentation Costs?

  • Based on the amount of hair loss, typically the price ranges from $2,500 to $4,000. We offer a free

  • consultation and provide a personalized price quote based on your needs.​

How many treatments should I expect?

  • To create the most natural appearance possible, on average, clients receive 2 to 3 (3 if needed)

  • treatments spaced out from 10 to 14 days between each session.

Does it hurt?

  • Before the procedure, your SMP practitioner may apply a topical numbing agent to your scalp. That said,

  • it’s good to keep in mind that there may still be some discomfort. However, how much discomfort

  • largely depends on your pain tolerance.

How long does Scalp Micropigmentation take?

  • Most clients can expect roughly between 2-4 hours per session depending on your degree of hair loss

  • or scarring. Some clients may request or require a third session to complete their treatment.

How long do the results last?

  • After completion of your treatment, a client should expect the strength of the color to last up to 4 to 6

  • years. Over time, the procedure will gradually lighten. When this occurs, a brief “touch up” session

  • may be needed to restore any fading.
