INKD BY AJ is a Melbourne based Scalp Micropigmentation specialist, offering non-surgical hair loss solutions for men and women.
Often referred to as SMP or Hair Tattoo, this unique cosmetic procedure provides life changing treatments for Pattern Baldness, Hair Thinning, Receding Hairlines and Alopecia.
We can also fill in and camouflage the look of FUT & FUE transplant or other scars and add density to hair transplant areas to create a fuller look.
Realistic & Undetectable
Scalp MicroPigmentation is the only hair loss treatment that can fully guarantee results and provide a long lasting solution for hair loss that you didn't realise was an option.
INKD BY AJ specialises in an ultra realistic and undetectable look - no-one will know you've had the treatment done, unless you tell them!
"The only hair loss solution with guaranteed results"
During the treatment, your hair follicles are recreated using a detailed "dotting" tattoo method, where ink is gradually deposited into the skin in multiple sessions or "layers".
The technique differs from that of traditional tattooing as there are no lines or shading and the ink is only deposited as deep as the papillary layer of skin, just below the epidermis. The machine, ink and micro needles used are specialised for SMP so the results are ultra realistic and undetectable.
The addition of tattooed SMP follicles to the scalp reduces the contrast between visible skin and hair, thus creating the illusion of new or thicker hairs. For those with receding hairlines or wearing the shaved head look, we offer complete hairline recreation and filling in of balding crowns, scars and other patches. For thinning hairlines or long hair on both men and women, we add density and fullness.
Clients typically need 2-4 sessions to complete their treatment, which will vary by the treatment type and the extent of hair loss. Scalp Micropigmentation is a semi-permanent treatment, and does fade over time as your skin sheds naturally, requiring touch-ups on average 2-5 years to freshen up the colour.
Watch the treatment take shape here
With minimal upkeep and no downtime, Scalp MicroPigmentation is now the #1 most sought after cosmetic hair loss treatment world wide!
Unlike hair growth treatments and transplants, the results of SMP Scalp Tattoo treatments are guaranteed and can be seen after just 1 session!
No more hair fibres, wig systems, or hiding under hats - With INKD BY AJ you can expect the most natural, undetectable results every time.

Hair must be kept shaved to a 0-1 length depending on extent of hair loss.

Our artist Ana will take into consideration your face shape, natural hairline, ethnicity, age and desired style when designing your hairline with you.
Suitable for men & women who wish to disguise thinning hair. A shaved head is not necessary for this treatment as we tattoo around your natural hair follicles.
This treatment does not affect hair growth and is a great addition for adding fullness to hair transplant areas.
By adding the tattooed follicles to your scalp it reduces the contrast between your visible skin and hair, which gives you the appearance of a fuller head of hair.
Your natural hair follicle size and colour will be matched and replicated for an undetectable and realistic result.
Disguise the look of scars by filling in areas where the follicle has been damaged and hair no longer grows.
Tiny hair follicles are gradually added in layers over the area to create a blended and undetectable look.
This treatment is suitable for FUT and FUE transplant scarring as well as accident and some birthmark scars.
The results are amazing and my “hair” looks like it is back.

3 STEPS TO A NEW YOU
SO YOU'VE DONE YOUR RESEARCH. YOU LIKE OUR VIBE AND HAVE CHOSEN INKD BY AJ (thanks!) FOR YOUR TREATMENT -
WHAT HAPPENS NOW?
Once we've completed your initial consultation and discussed what you'd like to achieve from your treatment, we book you in for your first session and get started on your transformation! Typically clients require 2-4 sessions to complete their look. However, everyone's scalp is unique. We will advise you during your consult on session numbers, and reassess after session 1 to monitor how your skin accepts the SMP pigment.
SESSION 1 : This is where we create the foundation of your treatment. For men receiving a new hairline, we always start conservative, spacing the tattooed follicles further apart to allow us to build upon the base. The basic shape of your treatment is now visible and outlined.
SESSION 2 : Your new look really starts to show! Ink from session 1 has settled, it's now time to add fullness to the look and fill inbetween the initial dots. Making any adjustments to ink colour, while blending into your natural hair and new tattooed follicles. Session 2 is spaced 7-10 days after session 1 for Hairline Recreations and 2 weeks apart for density treatments.
SESSION 3 : More density, blending and making any final changes to the hairline as needed. Adding the finishing touches and details for a flawless and natural looking finish. Spaced 2 weeks after session 2 for both Hairline Recreations and Density treatments. Final results can be seen over 7-10 days as the ink settles.
