Scalp micropigmentation is a procedure very similar to micro-balding, which creates an illusion of fuller hair. However, the method of implanting the pigment is different in both.
During the process of micro- pigmentation an electric tattoo device is used to implant the pigment, while in micro- balding, it is done with a manual blade. The skin on the scalp is thicker than the skin under the eyebrows, hence the device which is used needs to penetrate the skin.
The main idea of micropigmentation is to create layered dots in different hues, which replicates a shadow on the scalp. This is known as pointillism, in which both depth and definition are created.
The dots should look like natural hair follicles and blend seamlessly with your own complexion. For this reason, it is important that you get it done from a skilled practitioner.
This process is suitable for all those suffering from all kinds of hair loss. This includes people with male pattern baldness, thinning hair, or even those who have cancer or alopecia.
Before beginning the procedure, a numbing cream is applied to the scalp to avoid any discomfort.
People with any kind of scalp infection or inflammation should avoid the procedure till the inflammation settles down. Incase you are prone to keloids, we suggest you avoid the procedure altogether.
You can begin by booking a consultation with a good practitioner, who will guide you about the procedure, the dos and don’ts, what to expect from the procedure and how you can prepare yourself beforehand.
Micro- pigmentation is a semi permanent procedure. Its effect lasts a couple of years, but the pigment color fades over a period of time as the skin exfoliates, and especially if you have dry skin, it fades even sooner.
