What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Micropigmentation of the scalp is a hair follicle replication procedure that helps people who are experiencing hair loss, or who may have head scars that want to cover up. The procedure is a completely non-intrusive treatment and does not require any surgery. Our procedure has much lower costs and much lower risks compared to alternative hair replacement medications and practices.

What is the difference between micropigmentation of the scalp and a regular head tattoo?

Although some people may label micropigmentation as a tattoo, it is actually very different. First, and perhaps most importantly, is the practitioner’s ability. Our professionals have treated thousands of clients and are capable of skillfully reproducing a 3D look of natural hair. The needles are firmly embedded in the dermis, which is one of the most controlled layers of the skin. This is what prevents the dispersion of any ink. In addition, the needles used for this technique are single use needles that are three quarters smaller than any available tattoo needle.

What is the cost of this treatment?

Prices may vary, but generally speaking from $ 150 per session for a scar cover up to about $ 2,800 (3 sessions) for a person who has virtually no hair all over his head and needs more extensive treatment. Most of our clients have a horseshoe pattern and require a reconstruction of the front line, the top and the crown area. The average price is between $ 1,600 to $ 2,000, although all treatments are priced individually based on the exact requirements of each client.

How long will the treatment go on for?

The treatments will take approximately 3-4 hours for the first session, then about 2-3 hours for the second session and 1-2 hours for the third session if necessary. We offer a full warranty on any attenuation and a 3 month warranty on touch-ups for altering the hairline or fading.

Can you explain what happens when the pigment needle machine enters the scalp?

The implants of the needle in the form of a follicle go directly to the epidermis, without reaching the dermis. The skin is made of a mixture of cross fibers that have lumen inside the cells. Lumens allow the ink to deposit in the dermis and remain consistent in size and shape.

Can you explain precisely how the pigment is injected?

The ink is injected using a specialized rotary machine, similar to a permanent makeup machine. The difference is the blow, how we put the ink and the depth to which we implant the ink. We are able to implant the ink in the upper layer of the skin because we inject more ink. The excess ink will fade while the rest will remain. This leaves behind a small impression in the form of a follicle that will not be altered in size due to the fact that it is sitting in the dermis. The epidermis has blood flow and over time, the ink will spread, turning into a shadow and mixing with each other.

Will people know that I have had this treatment?

The result we offer is incredibly realistic. If you don’t tell them, they won’t know.

Will the pigment change color or fade at all?

We use an ink specially formulated for Micropigmentation of the scalp – it is not tattoo ink. As a result, there is no risk of the color turning blue or green.

Does the end result look like a tattoo?

Although it is a form of tattoo, the process and the final result are very different from that of a regular tattoo. Both our technique and our team are specifically designed to create a final result that seems natural.
