The Nouveau Clinic’s state-of-the-art method of pigment application, is a cosmetic solution designed to camouflage the bare spots in your scalp, while reducing the gaps in the density of your hair.

Scalp micro-pigmentation, or SMP,  uses a technique called “Hair Follicle Simulation”.
The Technicians at The Nouveau Clinic use the 3D Tattooing method to create a 3-D hair  replication.  This technique blends a variety of artistic effects, and several tones of color. The artistry is carefully applied over two to three applications.  The micro-insertions of pigment mimic the follicles, and the layered tones of color, shade the skin and simulate new hair growth.  SMP cuts the white, pink or shiny spots in the scalp, but will not totally shade the skin. (Think of a man’s beard with a five o’clock shadow).  The natural effect of hair density, is created by allowing the skin to show though the follicle simulation, creating the illusion of depth and movement.

We have over 16 years of experience, and thousands of completed procedures  for hair loss restoration services. We are dedicated specialists in the field of  medical and cosmetic camouflage artistry .

As an art form, scalp micro-pigmentation is practiced world-wide, and is one of the safest and most popular cosmetic solutions for camouflaging hair loss in men, and women. However, the application of pigment to mimic hair follicles, requires extensive training, and a true artist’s eye for color, style, and ethnic considerations.

Scar camouflage and hair simulation artistry, are two of the most challenging and rewarding fields of medical and cosmetic restoration. Our Technicians are artists as well as highly skilled clinicians. We have spent years training with specialists in our field the world over. Our skill sets have been honed through an unwavering commitment to using only the best technology, pigments and micro-pigmentation methods available today. We continue to expand our knowledge base through on-going training and we update our clinical certifications annually.

The Nouveau Clinic is a brand that stands for excellence in the paramedical arts. We are passionate about helping our clients camouflage scars and hair loss with minimally invasive, and long-term solutions. As experts in our field we will strive to meet or exceed your camouflage expectations. Your supreme satisfaction will always be our number one goal.

Scalp Micropigmentation - Nouveau Clinic

PLEASE NOTE:  CROWN HAIR LOSS FOR MEN:  If you want to keep your hair longer, we  do not recommended scalp micro-pigmentation for covering the back crown of the head.  For best results, you must have some hair remaining or transplanted into the crown area to blend into the illusion.  Scalp micro-pigmentation works best as a cosmetic solution for camouflaging hair loss if you are willing to keep a close cropped or buzzed style.  With the hair shorter, we can effectively camouflage your crown hair loss by using follicle simulation to blend into the shorter hair style.
Contact us for more details.

You will need to avoid swimming, sunbathing and coloring the hair for two weeks after your procedure. You can return to your normal activities the next day.  Your Technician will review all the  pre-and post service do’s and don’ts in your SMP consultation.

SMP is considered a form of cosmetic or paramedical tattooing, but it generally well tolerated by most individuals.  Your Technician has a variety of topical anesthetics that can be applied before, during and after your session to make you comfortable, if needed.
