Exploring Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp micropigmentation is a treatment used to combat the signs of hair loss, and create natural-looking dots on the scalp that look like real hair follicles. During a scalp micropigmentation treatment, a skilled practitioner uses an electric tattoo device that has microneedles that carefully deposit pigment onto the affected areas on the scalp. 

It provides you with very realistic results that are almost non distinguishable from real hair, and covers up any areas of hair loss on the scalp. It is an extremely safe treatment, with little to no risks and no down-time required.

Who is Suitable for Scalp Micropigmentation?

It is suitable for anyone, no matter your gender, age or hair issues. It is commonly used by those suffering from hair thinning, male or female pattern baldness, cancer, alopecia, hair loss due to medical treatments, scars from surgery. and those who are naturally balding. Scalp micropigmentation uses pigment that is carefully matched to your hair and skin colour, so it will look natural and realistic on your scalp. 

Is Scalp Micropigmentation Permanent?

Scalp micropigmentation is known as a semi-permanent treatment, making it an ideal solution for those suffering from hair-loss issues. It is a very long-lasting treatment, and is known to last between 3 to 5 years. However after this time, it usually does slowly start to fade and lighten, which is where some people choose to have a touch-up to keep their scalp micropigmentation looking fresh and darker.

How Long Does Scalp Micropigmentation Take to Complete?

The length of time that your scalp micropigmentation session will take to complete depends on the extent of your hair loss, but for most people it tends to be between 2 to 4 hours. This will mainly vary depending on the size of the area being treated, with larger areas taking longer to complete. Scalp micropigmentation requires no surgery or anesthesia, so you don’t have to take any down-time after your session to recover and can get back to normal life almost immediately.
