How Much Does Scalp Micropigmentation Cost?

Micropigmentation is a very intricate procedure. On average, there are over 100,000 follicles on the human head; this means our skilled practitioners—guided by cutting-edge technology—must carefully implant pigments by hand upwards of 1,250 times per square inch. The price to accomplish this feat at Hairline Ink generally falls between $1,800 to $3,200 for what we would consider our average client’s needs and desired look. The exact price of a scalp micropigmentation treatment, however, may be higher or lower depending on a number of factors.

Tens of thousands have chosen scalp micropigmentation because it is the only permanent hair loss solution with IMMEDIATE results, and the cost of SMP is far more affordable compared to other hair restoration methods.

A vast majority of hair loss ‘solutions’ are unreasonably expensive, and shockingly ineffective. In this video, Hairline Ink clients talk about their negative experiences with other hair loss ‘solutions’, and how Hairline Ink & scalp micropigmentation was the guaranteed solution they had been searching for.

"Best decision I ever made. Worth every dollar!"

"I went to another company first and all they did was take my money! I heard about hairline ink and it was the best decision I ever made... worth every dollar! My artist did an amazing job. Polite, courteous, respectful, and most important - passionate and dedicated to his work!!! Excellent service extremely classy and great environment highly recommend it!"

Factors that Affect the Cost of Your Scalp Micropigmentation Procedure

The cost of each procedure varies based on several factors, including the size of the treatment area, your type of skin, if you have scarring, and how dense your original hair is.

Treatment Area

Of course, one of the biggest factors that dictates the price of micropigmentation will be the cumulative size of the treatment area determined by the size of the head and the extent of the hair loss.

The majority of our clients suffer from male pattern baldness, the severity of which is determined by The Norwood scale. If you are in the earlier stages of balding, treatment will be less costly compared to addressing the larger treatment areas associated with the later stages. MPB cannot be prevented and generally follows these stages:

  1. Stage I: Baseline—no hair loss.
  2. Stage II: The hairline begins to thin typically in an “m” shaped pattern at the temples.
  3. Stage III: The “m” pattern first seen in the previous stage deepens. Often, hair at the crown of the head begins to thin during this time as well. This is the first stage hair loss can be technically considered “baldness.”
  4. Stage IV: Hair recedes more dramatically at the sides in this stage, often leaving a triangular island of hair at the front of the head. The bald spot in the back of the head is more noticeable. However, there is generally a full bridge of hair that separates the two distinct areas of hair loss.
  5. Stage V: The two main regions of hair loss in the front and back are still distinct, but the band that separates them starts to thin.
  6. Stage VI: The two main areas of hair loss unite in this stage. Hair continues to recede around the sides of the head.
  7. Stage VII: In this stage, only the hair around the back and sides of the head remain, forming the classic “horseshoe” pattern.

Pricing for those suffering from other conditions that result in hair loss in the form of general thinning, patching, or complete baldness will be established in the same way—cumulative size of the treatment area determined by the size of the head and the extent of the hair loss.

Skin Type

The vast majority of our clients have a skin type that falls into what we would consider a normal range. However, there are a number of different skin types and conditions that require special accommodations which may affect the price of your treatment plan.

Excessively dry, flaky skin; older skin; severe acne; moles; damaged skin; or highly sensitive skin may necessitate extra time and care.

Extremely thick skin might also require extra treatment time; the thicker the skin, the more pressure is needed in order for the needles to penetrate through to the deeper layers. Thinner skin requires less pressure on the pen, which allows for a quicker hand motion and shortens the overall treatment time.

New skin may also affect the procedure. Let your technician at Hairline Ink know if you’ve recently received a hair transplant. Sometimes collagen forms at the site of the new grafts, which makes the skin very soft and act like a sponge when the pigment is injected in that area. Scalp Micropigmentation and hair transplant procedures can be a very effective combination, but just be sure to consult with your technician to discuss time and technique to achieve optimal results.

"Blown Away with The Results"

"Had some work done recently and let me just say, I am blown away with the results. My practicioner is truly amazing and just from talking to him, you can tell he really cares. I highly recommend Hairline Ink!"

Ulysses - Chicago, IL


"Wish We Would Have Done This Sooner!"

"My husband and I are so glad we went to hairline ink! My husband's micropigmintation looks so natural and it makes him look younger. I also had micropigmintation done on a scar on the back of my head they did such a fantastic job! This has changed our lives... Wish we would have done this sooner!"


The presence of scarring may also require special time and consideration from a technician at Hairline Ink. Since hair does not grow over scar tissue, and micropigmentation is meant to mimic natural hair stubble, other accommodations must be made.

For lighter scars, implementing a specialized technique along with our normal micropigmentation treatment will usually be enough to hide the blemish. For more pronounced scarring, our technicians might recommend focusing on the scar treatment before proceeding with the full scalp micropigmentation treatment, or we might recommend pre-treatment with our revolutionary camouflage ink system.

Camouflage Ink “fades” the scar by first blending the discoloration into the surrounding skin before moving forward with our standard micropigmentation procedure to give the appearance of natural hair growth, as if the scar was never even there.

Hair Density and Style
Even with a full head of hair, the natural density of one’s hair can vary greatly from person to person. Blondes, for example, have an average of 150,000 individual hair follicles, while redheads may have as few as 90,000. For the most natural look, we take into account the fullness and distribution of your natural hair. However, if you’re not happy with the natural distribution of your hair, talk to your technician about using micropigmentation to fill out the appearance of your existing hair. The style you choose will also determine the density of the treatment and the time required to accomplish the look. A “wet shave” look is a very light treatment option, while a classic fade needs extra density in places which means extra treatment time.

Our client, Reid, suffered from classis Male Pattern Baldness. After 2 sessions, his hairline returned, along with his self confidence and sense of strength and youth.
