What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
The reason why so many men are opting for scalp micro-pigmentation is that the process is far preferable to the options out there, such as getting hair transplants or taking medications like Minoxidil (which comes with many known side-effects). In contrast, scalp micro-pigmentation has few, if any, side effects, and works immediately. Some men report slight redness on the scalp immediately after the procedure, but that usually clears up within 24-48 hours.
Moreover, you have complete control over the color of the pigmentation, as well as how it is used to create a specific pattern or look. For example, some men with thinning hair may prefer to use the micro-pigmentation to fill in balding areas, creating the illusion of a full, thick and strong head of hair. Scalp micro-pigmentation is so effective that some men use it camouflage and cover up the effects of earlier hair treatments, especially transplant scarring.
For men with thinning hair or receding hairlines, there is now a cosmetic, non-invasive treatment called scalp micro-pigmentation that can help to create the look and feel of close-cropped hair. But what exactly is scalp micro-pigmentation, and how does it differ from the other hair loss solutions for men?
During scalp micro-pigmentation, very detailed micro-needles are used to insert tiny pigment dots into the scalp to re-create the look and appearance of real hair. Since the average male head contains nearly 100,000 hair follicles, the process requires the insertion of nearly 1,250 pigments dots per square inch. The exact number varies, depending on the size of the head, the extent of the hair loss, and the exact shape and appearance of the hairstyle desired by the client. But the final result is stunning – it looks much like a buzz cut that you might receive at your local barbershop.
The results of scalp micro-pigmentation can be quite dramatic. Men with pattern baldness can achieve the look of close-cropped hair, while men with thinning hair can create the appearance of thicker, stronger hair.
And you can achieve all this without any real downtime. The first session usually requires anywhere from 3 to 5 hours, but after that, there is little or no maintenance needed – and absolutely no lifestyle restrictions. Imagine being able to hang out at the swimming pool or beach, confident in the way you look. Having a new full head of hair can make you look 10 or even 20 years younger. If you are looking for a proven option to reverse the ageing effects of male pattern baldness, you need to take a closer look at scalp micro-pigmentation.
Typically, scalp micro-pigmentation proceeds over a period of 2-3 sessions, with each new session used to fine-tune the color of the hair and get the exact results required. The treatment itself is also known as a “hair tattoo” and a “scalp tattoo,” for obvious reasons. The process of using micro-needles to insert tiny pigment dots into the scalp resembles the process for getting a tattoo. However, the process is relatively painless, and the option exists to use an anaesthetic to numb the scalp and prepare it for the treatment.
