Without a doubt, scalp micropigmentation is the fastest growing solution for male hair loss in recent history.
It is non-invasive, has universal appeal and is permanent, but only if you want it to be. Furthermore, it remains the only permanent hair loss fix to offer instantaneous, guaranteed results.
Tiny micro-dots are placed into the scalp to create the illusion of a hair follicle.
Scalp micropigmentation is the process of replicating the appearance of shaven hair, by introducing thousands of tiny pigment deposits into the epidermis of the scalp. When placed by a skilled technician, the recipient appears as if they have a full head of hair, shaved to a very short length.
More men than ever before, and an increasing number of women, are choosing scalp pigmentation in favor of traditional remedies such as hair transplant surgery, concealers, hair systems and drug-based solutions.
What is the treatment process?
A relatively simple treatment to undertake, the scalp micropigmentation method consists of depositing small ‘dots’ of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin, with the use of a fine needle. Combined with thousands of other ‘dots’, an illusion of a full head of shaved hair is created.
The client usually requires 2-3 sessions, each lasting approximately 2-3 hours, but time does vary depending on individual requirements. The process is repeated until both the technician and client are satisfied that the semblance of hair cannot be distinguished from the surrounding real hair.
Does the treatment hurt?
Most people experience a mild amount of discomfort during the early stages of the session, though this tends to become more tolerable as the session progresses. Some areas of the scalp have a denser collection of nerve endings than others, particularly at the sides of the head, and can often be the most challenging to deal with, but many choose to focus on the benefits and the final of the treatment to help contain the sensation.
What is the recovery period?
Once the pigments are deposited, the skin needs to heal. A recovery period of one week should be allowed, so that the micro-wounds created during the procedure may dry up and close while the pigments get assimilated into the dermal layer.
The treatment process must likewise follow a fairly strict procedure that allows the patient’s scalp to heal between treatment sessions. The industry standard timescales are as follows:
Day 1 – first session
Day 8 (or later) – second session
Day 15 (or later) – third session
Basically, leave a minimum of one week between each session, however there are a couple of considerations.
First, it is feasible to leave just 5 days between each session for clients who have an issue with time, for example when they’re traveling from far away for their procedure. Second, it is common to leave several weeks between the second and third sessions, to allow time for the pigments to fully settle and to establish whether or not a third session is actually needed.
Are there any common side effects?
Micropigmentation in general has very limited side effects and does not tend to cause adverse reactions. This is because the technique addresses the visual symptom, (the hair loss itself) rather than the underlying cause. This makes a full medical diagnosis less important. Whilst the side effects are limited, the advice of a technician prior to starting treatment is still necessary.
How much does scalp micropigmentation cost?
Treatments depend heavily on the clients requirements, therefore cost will be determined at the consultation appointment. Feel free to send photos directly to Alicia via messenger or text at 954-774-5087 to get an estimate.
How long does the illusion last?
Everyone wants to know how long their treatment will last. The nature of the process means that it will fade slowly over a period of time. Whilst the pigments will probably remain visible for 20 years or more, regular touch-ups are needed to keep your ‘hair’ looking its best. Most clients find they need touch-ups every 3-5 years.
For maximum longevity, it is important to keep the scalp in a good condition. Ensure that your head is cleansed and moisturized daily, take adequate precautions in the sun and avoid topical products that contain alcohol.
Fading will inevitably occur. Clients will have to visit once every 3-5 years.
Have hair transplants?
Compliment a hair transplant by filling in with micro dots and make it look like you have more hair.
Are you bald?
You can now appear to have a SHAVED HEAD LOOK. No more shiny, bald head!
