Here are some of the things you should know about scalp micropigmentation:

What is scalp micropigmentation?

Scalp micropigmentation is a special type of hair tattoo where natural pigments are placed in the scalp’s epidermal layer. It is a non-surgical hair loss procedure for both men and women. The hair tattoo will appear natural and you will be able to get your desired look. Scalp micropigmentation can conceal the imperfections in your scalp, for example, if you have a scar due to an accident or surgery, burn marks, or alopecia (hair loss or baldness), then you can get an outstanding result from this treatment.

Scalp micropigmentation is more popular with men as it gives the appearance of a close shave, however, women also use it to fill in bald spots or areas where their hair is thinning to give the appearance of fuller or thicker hair.

Full head coverage or partial coverage

Scalp micropigmentation can provide relief from any type of hair loss. Whether you are partially bald or completely bald, you will be able to get natural looking hair. For partial hair loss, our experts will be able to fill in the gaps in hair. Despite age or skin color, scalp pigmentation will be able to help you at any stage of your hair loss. Lots of replicated follicles will give a natural hairline to your partial or completely bald scalp.

Is it safe?

The practitioners who perform the scalp micropigmentation procedure are fully qualified. They hold certifications equivalent to a Diploma in micropigmentation treatments. They have a good knowledge on the hair pattern and hair follicles. They know that the follicles don’t have same shade. So, they use pigments of multiple shades to get a more natural look. The cosmetic procedure is absolutely safe. Other hair treatment methods may lead to allergies, infections and even rejection of the treatment, but, if you choose a qualified practitioner and follow their aftercare instructions, this is not the case for scalp micropigmentation. As natural pigments are used, there is little risk of any allergy or infection. No medication is required and the procedure is very hygienic. The clinics that perform this procedure maintain good hygiene at every stage.

Is it painful?

There is a debate in this regard. Some people say that it feels uncomfortable, while others say that the procedure is painless. To some extent, the level of pain depends on the type of scalp skin the person has. If the skin is thin then the level of discomfort will be more. Older men have less sensitive skin, so will feel less pain. The place where you are doing the procedure matters as well. You may feel the pain on the temple and the frontal hairline. If there is a scar in the scalp then the level of discomfort varies. You may need to take painkillers like ibuprofen during the treatment. If you become anxious during the treatment then you may feel more pain. So, basically, the level of pain varies from person to person; most people experience a pain level of 3 to 5 in a scale of 1 to 10. The best thing would be to stay calm and relaxed during the procedure. Continue reading “Scalp Micropigmentation”
