We all have to live with restrictions placed on us by our financial standing. Unfortunately it’s the nature of the world we live in, where resources are finite and we have to prioritise accordingly. This causes most of us to look for cost savings wherever possible, be it on a loaf of bread or a new car.

Scalp micropigmentation has come a long way in recent years. The very best clinics have honed and perfected their technique through experience that can only be gained through the treatment of hundreds (or even thousands) of clients. There is no substitute for this experience.


This is exactly how a high quality scalp micropigmentation treatment should look

A large number of companies has responded to increased demand for scalp micropigmentation by entering the market. The issue is that they do not possess the history, background, knowledge and experience that we do. They’re literally learning as they go. What this means is that you’re not actually getting scalp micropigmentation as it was intended, but rather a cheap hair tattoo that is unlikely to meet your expectations.

Where does the term ‘hair tattoo’ come from?

Back in 2002 when we developed the most rudimentary version of our technique, we actually called it a hair tattoo because at the time, we didn’t know what else to call it. Bear in mind that nothing like this existed back then. There was no precedent at all.

Professional clinics that offer a properly developed treatment now refer to this solution as scalp micropigmentation, scalp pigmentation or something similar. Those who have no understanding of the complexities of this advanced treatment for hair loss simply refer to it as a hair tattoo, as was the case before the process was developed into what it is today. Any provider that tries to sell a cheap hair tattoo service should be avoided at all costs.

How cheap is ‘cheap’?

All leading clinics generally charge £2000-3500 for a complete treatment. Any provider charging less than that should be approached with caution. Although we fully understand that cost is a consideration, it should be secondary in this case versus the quality of treatment received, such is the importance of a favourable outcome.

What if you cannot afford to pay the going rate?

Our clients come from all walks of life, from stockbrokers to salesmen, civil servants to labourers. We understand of course that depending on current situations, some people may find it difficult to raise the funds required for a top provider like Scalp Clinic.

We aim to keep our prices as competitive as possible, and for your inconvenience we accept all payment methods, including credit cards. Finance is also available to those with a clean credit history and the ability to meet the monthyly repayments.

From time to time we require willing clients to participate in our photoshoots and videos, in return for which we offer a discounted treatment. It might be worth asking about our current requirements if you’d be happy to be seen on camera.

If you’re simply not in a position to afford a quality scalp micropigmentation treatment right now, we urge you to wait until you can. Do not be fooled by substandard hair tattoo offers. The real cost of a cheap service could end up much higher in the long run, both financially and in terms of your happiness and wellbeing.
