Vancouver Scalp Micropigmentation specializes in SMP for men & women suffering from hair loss, thinning, scarring, Alopecia and botched SMP procedures.


The SMP Clinic is located in Burnaby, BC and is owned and operated by world renowned artist Billy DeCola.


The studio is licensed & insured and is by appointment only so you can expect to receive our undivided attention during your consultation and SMP procedures.

Owner and Artist Billy DeCola is a global brand ambassador for Bishop SMP and he's a proud member of the Bishop SMP Pro Team - a team comprised of a select few scalp micropigmentation artists from around the world who are considered to be the best in the industry.


Billy was among the first SMP specialists to deliver scalp micropigmentation treatments in Japan, the United States and Canada. He's treated countless clients suffering from hair loss, thinning, scarring, alopecia and botched SMP jobs.


Billy's path to offering scalp micropigmentation services and training started with over a decade spent in the tattoo industry where he honed his precision technique and developed a reputation for his creative design. Before moving to Vancouver in 2011, Billy was a cast member on TLC’s hit reality show “NY Ink."


With his extensive tattooing experience, Billy found a natural fit with providing scalp micropigmentation services for both men and women.

Over the years Billy has developed his own SMP technique which has grown in popularity in recent years. His attention to detail and precise hair follicle placement methodology achieves some of the most realistic micropigmentation results in the world.

Billy’s SMP Training Course has had an overwhelmingly positive response and he strives to continue to provide a sound, fundamental education for beginners, PMU professionals and professional tattooers looking to add SMP to their services.

As in-person training has become increasingly difficult Billy has recently produced an online SMP training program for experienced tattooers, permanent makeup artists and existing SMP practitioners.

The Vancouver Scalp Difference

Our dedication to the craft, passion for innovation and extensive experience is what separates Vancouver Scalp from the vast majority of SMP providers. 

Vancouver Scalp has consistently delivered realistic and life changing results with an excellent customer satisfaction track record - a major contributing factor to our success and popularity. That's why most of our new business comes from referrals and word of mouth.

Clients travel great distances to have their procedures done in our sanitary, clinical environment. We use the highest quality and safest equipment available to ensure the results exceed your expectations.

Technique & Technology


Billy DeCola's specialized layering technique yields realistic and subtle results.


The machines we use, The Bishop Wand, are the safest and most effective SMP machines available. The 3.5 mm stroke delivers precisely accurate pigment implantation which perfectly replicates a natural hair follicle.


We only use single use, disposable needles for each and every procedure. Our SMP specific needles are the smallest on the market and mimic hair follicles.


The *pigments we use are Vegan and absolutely non-toxic & non-hazardous. You can rest assured that our SMP specific, charcoal based pigments will not turn blue or red over time.


Our highly trained staff have all received **Blood Born Pathogens Training.

Our Guarantee:

We stand behind our work 100%. In the unlikely event that an extra touchup or alteration is needed within your free touch-up period, it's on us!

* Under the OSHA COMMUNICATION STANDARD (29 CFR 1910,1200) our pigments do NOT contain carcinogenic, repro-toxic or mutagenic substances and do NOT contain preservative substances.

** OSHA mandated training program for any person who may be reasonably anticipated to face contact with blood and other potentially infectious materials as the result of performing their duties.
