Scalp micropigmentation has become a popular non-invasive hair loss solution in recent years, and for good reason. It has some of the best-looking results!
In this review, we’ll be taking a closer look at some of the best scalp micropigmentation services in Edmonton. See which places landed on today’s picks and why.
How We Chose the Best Scalp Micropigmentation in Edmonton
The following are the criteria we use to evaluate our entries:
|ADDRESS||2951 Ellwood Dr. SW #102, Edmonton, AB T6X 0B1, Canada|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday - Friday: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM|
Headways offers treatments for receding hairlines, alopecia, scarring, and male pattern baldness with their scalp micropigmentation (SMP). It’s their long-lasting results that drew us in – ones that are most evident in their solid track record.
The key to their long-lasting SMP results is all in the “touch-up” sessions. This process naturally leads to better outcomes since the growth becomes more strictly monitored.
One of the things worth noting about them is that they offer free consultation where they provide a personalized quote based on the customer’s hair loss needs. Knowing this, you can get a good idea of how much the SMP will cost you and what results to expect.
Headways has actually performed numerous cases where they provided SMP to camouflage transplant scars or to add density to the transplanted area. It’s a really strong specialty that not a lot of clinics are skilled at.
However, they don’t collaborate with any hair transplant surgeons in Edmonton, which can be an inconvenience for some. Fortunately, it’s not always likely that you’ll need a hair transplant (still though, it depends on your case).
Finally, we like that Headways includes before and after photos on their website to demonstrate the real results their clients received. This is a plus in our book, and we appreciate that they try to be as transparent as possible about expected outcomes.
I can’t say enough about Kay ang her work!!! So I will keep it short!! She is just as amazing as the work she does!! I contemplated getting SMP done for over a year. I decided on Kay, through her website, reviews and photos!! I am extremely glad she performed my SMP; to say I am happy with her work would be an understatement!! – Mike McPhee

Scalpmicro has been dealing with receding hairlines for over 15 years through their SMP service. What makes them stand out is the capacity to deal competently with cases of varying gravity, whether you’re in the beginning or late stages of the issue.
The owner himself is an SMP technician, to start with – it’s a bit reassuring although not all that impressive. What’s really impressive here, honestly, is the number of recommendations we got for their non-invasive procedure on both men and women for their SMP service.
On top of that, they actually received certification twice, proving a commitment to continually evolve their techniques. And it seems like all the training paid off as their work history is pretty outstanding with many successful cases.
In that regard, it’s not big news to learn that they’ve received positive reviews from their clients. Apart from the “life-changing” results they’ve experienced, they also applauded the level of client care provided by the clinic’s friendly staff.
In addition, they are held in high regard for cleanliness, sterilization, and safety by AHS Alberta Health Services. This, for us, is an important factor to ensure the maximum level of safety for both their clients and SMP practitioners.
All things considered, Scalpmicro truly seems like a good place to get a hair tattoo given the background and reputation they hold. Free and no-pressure consultations await you, which is always good for first-timers.
Very accommodating, you won’t regret
From day 1 this has been a great experience, and I love the final result! Mitch is very thorough, professional, and friendly, and very accommodating when it comes to scheduling appointments, and I was particularly grateful for this as I don’t live in the area. If you need a confidence boost and SMP is what you are looking for, give Mitch a call and you won’t regret it 🙂 – Luca Lo Maximo
The best and professional
Absolutely amazing it looks like I have hair. Mitch is the best, professional, and made sure it was nothing but spectacular. I’ve had so many compliments of my transformation. Thank so very much. Mitch is awesome. You will definitely be not disappointed. – Daryl St Martin
3. Alberta Micro-Pigmentation Clinic
|ADDRESS||11807 95a St NW, Edmonton, AB T5G 1R2, Canada|
|CONTACT DETAILS||(780) 938-7077|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday - Friday: By appointment only | Saturday - Sunday: 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM|
Alberta Micropigmentation Clinic, offers micropigmentation services that improve eyebrows, scalp, and scarring. To specialize in this area, they offer semi-permanent and permanent cosmetic tattooing.
As we expected of a place many lauded to us, their technicians use top-of-the-line equipment and are trained by North America’s leading industry providers. Simply put, they’re certified and geared with the right technology.
This matters because it means they can combine the clinical precision of trained people with the artistic talent required to achieve the most natural results. In our opinion, this is one of the most important qualities of SMP (because who wants unnatural-looking results, anyway?).
Plus, they provide a treatment environment that meets clinical cleanliness and safety standards. This is the bare minimum for all clinics, of course, but they do it in such a way that doesn’t feel intimidating and suffocating.
Now, for their SMP services, AMC uses specially-designed pigments to replicate the hair follicle and camouflage skin imperfections. Based on what we’ve seen from the clients, the appearance this achieves is really impressive.
Still, we believe that there is no standardized procedure for SMP since every case has its own specificities. For that, AMZ customizes each treatment to the client’s individual needs, walking them through the overall process.
The only negative note is their poor management regarding the fees. There have been complaints about their failure to refund deposits when customers cancel their scheduled appointments.
Other than that, they seem pretty amazing overall.
Pleasing outcome, highly skilled
My husband, Mack had SMP procedure done recently. Mack is very pleased with the outcome. Marlaina is very talented and highly skilled. Mack was really impressed with her professionalism. – Harinder Nijjar
Master of the art, knows what she does
I got Scalp Micro-Pigmentation done from Marlaina. With this job I would have given her more than five stars if there was an option. Just showed her a picture on my phone of what I wanted and in three sessions she made it happen. This is a complete art and she is the master of it. Don’t waste time finding other places as this is the right one for SMP. Very professional and knows what she does. – Asad Tanwir
4. Studio N Beauty
|ADDRESS||10569 111 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5H 3E8, Canada|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday - Saturday: 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM|
When it comes to advanced micropigmentation techniques, Studio N Beauty knows the drill. It’s because, in addition to providing the said service, they also offer education to aspiring permanent makeup artists.
With that, the studio is able to hand-pick talented and dedicated artists to carry out their procedures. Permanent make-up is their specialty, but they also offer other cosmetic treatments such as eyelash extensions and lifts – and of course, scalp micropigmentation.
Based on our experience, Studio N Beauty is pretty solid in the consultation process. They seem able to instantly determine which technique is best for each client’s situation, which is why they can accommodate immediate SMP appointment booking
Whether you have thinning hair, a receding hairline, or just want to have your scar camouflaged, they can work with you to create your desired density too. They can work with any hair length as well.
We also appreciate that they can be completely honest when it’s not appropriate to recommend SMP. With this, Studio N Beauty doesn’t give their customers false hope, which, unfortunately, happens a lot across many cosmetics clinics.
Because each SMP case is unique, the studio does not charge a flat rate. The good news is that they can provide a quote during the initial consultation, all based on the customers’ customized treatment.
Clean and relaxing
The staff here is so knowledgeable and they made me feel like family, I’m very excited to see the end result! I would highly recommend them to anyone! The shop is clean and relaxing, I felt I was in good hands and have no worries about the procedure. – Melanie Parish
5. Brau Haus Studio
|ADDRESS||8927C 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6C 0Z2, Canada|
|CONTACT DETAILS||780-244-BROW (2769)|
|OPERATING HOURS||Tuesday - Saturday: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM|
You might know Brau Haus Studio as one of Edmonton’s most popular cosmetic tattoo shops and beauty studios. But they’re actually also good with SMP services, even being able to rival other cosmetic clinics.
All SMP appointments at this studio require a consultation prior to a much better-customized treatment. This is also where they go over all of the pre-care and after-care information, as well as the cost of the procedure.
Regardless of the overall expense, Brau Haus Studio offers a 20% discount to those who have lost their hair due to medical reasons. Obviously, this is a fantastic deal since clients can gain their confidence at a more affordable offer.
The studio has three certified cosmetic tattoo artists on staff, which is enough to cater to many clients. We reckon it’s important to note given that there were a few interested customers who didn’t sign up due to a long waiting list of clients.
Unfortunately, only one of their three employees specializes in scalp micropigmentation. This simply made their SMP inaccessible to more people at the same time, so you really have to time your appointments as early as possible.
Despite this, the good news is that this single staff member is quite impressive in providing personalized SMP procedures, making the long wait worthwhile. You can actually see their work portfolio for yourself on their website.
Overall, amidst minor flaws, Brau Haus Studio remains a good option for SMP. But specifically, you might want to give them a ring for their discounted service for eligible clients.
Attention to detail, a genius in their field
I have been going to Samantha for about 4 years now. Every time, she amazes me. The attention to detail stood out the most. She certainly is a genius in her field. I have referred my friends to her and they were not disappointed. – Revelina “Evelyn” Macapagal
Answered questions knowledgeably
Brau Haus’ new space is gorgeous. Clean, bright, lots of parking and easy to get to. I had a ton of questions about what future services might be right for me. Paige answered all of them knowledgeably. – Briana Miller
