Scalp Micro-pigmentation on the Rise

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.

Maintenance costs

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!

10 Benefits of Scalp Micropigmentation as a Hair Loss Solution

When men & women begin to lose their hair, it can affect not only how they see themselves, but how they feel about themselves as well. Their confidence and self-esteem can be lost and they may not feel as attractive as they once did. Though there are many types of hair loss treatments available, not all of them work, leaving men & women suffering from hair loss with few options. That’s why scalp micropigmentation is the best course of action for those in this position; because of the numerous benefits this procedure can offer to those suffering from hair loss:

  • No False Claims- There are dozens of products on the market that claim they will re-grow hair, but most of them have no effect at all. They are purchased and used because some people will believe anything in the hopes of a cure for their baldness. Micropigmentation is different, because it is not for hair growth, nor does it claim to be.
  • Affordable – Because scalp micropigmentation is a permanent solution to hair loss, there is no need to waste hard-earned money on ineffective tonics or shampoos. It is also only a fraction of the cost when compared to hair transplants. There isn’t even any need for post-procedural medications or care products, which mean more money kept in the pocket, where it belongs.
  • Safe – The treatment does not use any chemicals, which means no side effects. It also doesn’t require any incisions, so there is little risk of infection. There is also no need to fear the needle that is used to add the pigmentation to the skin, because a topical anesthetic is used.
  • Fast Procedure – This simple procedure, which is basically hair tattooing, is finished in only 3 sessions. This means only a few hours must be spent to achieve a perfect shaved-head look. And even after the first session, the results are quite realistic.
  • Fast Healing – Because of the non-invasive procedure of micropigmentation, healing time is limited to only a few days. In fact, most people who choose this procedure are back to work within two days. There are no dressings to change, or stitches to be concerned with. All that is needed is thorough cleaning in the following weeks.
  • Little Maintenance – Because there is no real hair, there is no need for expensive hair products, nor is there extra time wasted on styling. Simply wash the pigmented area, and if it is desired, add a bit of hair wax to add a bit of shine, and head out the door for a night out with friends, or a special lady.
  • Look Younger – There can be the perception that balding men are automatically old. This does nothing to boost a man’s confidence if he is younger, because looking old can actually make a person feel old. Because the scalp micropigmentation gives men back their hair, and also creates that shaved-head look that is worn by even the biggest movie stars, men can reacquaint themselves with their younger self.
  • Looks Realistic – The purpose of this procedure is to give men & women back their hair, even if it is not actual hair. That is why the pigments are matched to both existing hair color, as well as skin tone, for the most realistic look achievable. Even what direction the natural hair growth would have taken is considered, to be sure of a genuine look.
  • Long Lasting – Because a scalp micropigmentation will last for years, there will never again be a shortage of confidence to match the shortage of hair. The pigmentation will never fall out, and it can be updated to match changing styles, or even to add a new color.
  • Hides Imperfections – For those with scars from past injuries, or even from hair transplant procedures they had endured in the past, the micropigmentation creates a bit of camouflage for these imperfections. It can also help to mask a receding hairline, making hair appear fuller.
