Scalp Micropigmentation – The Treatment


Scalp Micropigmentation is an advanced micropigmentation technique that effectively addresses thinning hair in both men and women. Simulating hair roots or hair stubble, Scalp Scalp Micropigmentation is the placement of thousands of tiny 'pigment dots' that are superficially tattooed into the scalp to mimic the look of shaved hair.

For men, this technique is used to create a shaved look, instead of going (partially) bald. Depending on the degree of hair loss, it is sometimes possible for the client to keep their existing hair length, although most choose to shave to make the most of the simulated shaved look.

For women or men who want to keep their hair longer, Scalp Micropigmentation reduces the contrast between the hair and the scalp to create a thicker, fuller appearance of the hair. This option is suitable for clients who still have hair and do not want to cut their hair short.

The advantages:

While there are many modern methods available to treat hair loss, the non-invasive method of scalp micropigmentation is becoming increasingly popular, especially for those who:

  • Wanting the “look” of a “freshly shaved” head

  • Want to make the hairline fuller and/or partially or completely thicken the bald areas of the scalp

  • Wishing for fuller eyebrows - Micropigmentation of eyebrows

  • Want to improve the aesthetic effect of a hair transplant – combination therapy

  • Wanting to camouflage the symptoms of Alopecia

  • Who want to cover large, distorted scars from a failed hair transplant - FUT - Scar Restoration

  • Who want to repair burns or scars

  • Want to improve an older scalp micropigmentation result

The Scalp Micropigmentation method also targets:

  • People at a very early stage of hair loss

  • People with a completely exhausted or insufficient donor area that makes hair transplant impossible

  • People Suffering From Androgenetic Alopecia - Hair Loss In Men

  • Individuals suffering from female hair loss

Results and contraindications:

After any micropigmentation on the scalp, the patient may develop a small hematoma and irritation in the form of a small open wound, symptoms that will disappear within a few days. When the last session is over, the wounds and the discomfort associated with it disappear and the effect becomes more and more natural.

The result of the method is immediately visible after the last session is completed. However, in the next 3-6 months, the image of the scalp improves as the points of the tattoo pigment get smaller, bringing a completely realistic result. It is important to protect the area from exposure to sunlight to avoid a color change of the tattoo.

No recovery period is required and so the person can immediately return to their daily activities.
