The Scalp Aesthetics Treatment (SAT) is a non-surgical hair loss solution-for both men and women-where the scalp's natural follicles are replicated in shade and pattern to reflect the natural appearance of hair. Here at Scalp Aesthetics, we perform our Scalp Micropigmentation treatment a little differently, but putting our clients at the heart of everything we do. Each treatment performed by one of our SAT artist is tailor-made to meet the needs of the client based on hair loss extent and desired look. We manufacture our own machines, needles, and after care products; as well as provide comprehensive training for our SAT artists through the Scalpa Academy. This customer-first approach has lead us to grow from a single location in Rochester, NY, to become the largest and most respected Scalp Micropigmentation company in the world. 


Our inks are charcoal based, which means that their is no chance for your Scalp Aesthetics Treatment turning blue or green.

Our needles are a custom shape, designed to perfectly replicate the diameter and shape of a natural hair follicle. This ensures that you will have a flawlessly natural look.

Our competitors use permanent makeup machines with a 3mm stoke length, so we developed the worlds only scalp micropigmentation delivering 5mm. Although we're still hitting just the top layers of skin, a longer stoke means more ink is deposited, resulting in less fading, fewer sessions required, and ultimately better results.

During our consultation we carefully address your concerns about the procedure. Depending on factors such as scar tissue, hair loss extent, and pattern, we discuss treatments that may be ideal for you based on the individual needs. Some clients will a more natural soft hairline while others will wants a harder, more edged up look. No matter the look you are going for we will carefully assess your unique situation and deliver the best possible results.
