How can scalp micropigmentation or hair tatooing assist in hair loss and baldness?
Scalp Micropigmentation is a semi permanent tatooing proceedure that is used to redefine the hairline, mask scars, pigmentation and give the illusion of a thicker head of hair. Tatoo ink is deposited into the dermal layer of the skin to replicate the skin follicles of the hairline and scalp. The needle that is used is 25% the size of a traditional tatooists needle. This ensures good spacing between the ink deposits and ensure realistic and reliable results.
Scalp Pigmentation is more widely accessible, reliable and more cost effective than the current hair transplant proceedures. The hair pigmentation proceedure can usually be completed in 2-3 sessions, depending on the desired work area and outcome of the consultation. Each session can be scheduled a week apart. This allows the pigment to settle and he dermis to heal before each follow up session. Over time the pigment will fade and further sessions may be required. The colour should last for 3-10 years dependant primarily on exposure to strong sunlight. Protecting the pigment from sun exposure will prolong the time between maintainance sessions.
