What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Some will refer to it as a Hair Tattoo or Medical Hairline Tattooing or Hair Simulation or Follicle Replication. In the end, it’s simply the art of creating the illusion of real hair follicles. Similar to microblading, it is done by hand.
Most practitioners have been trained to use one type of needle when performing scalp micropigmentation. Not our artists! We are trained to use different types of needles (single micro and three-point) in order to achieve optimal results. Aside from the hairline, our artists also pay very close attention to key factors such as blending, matching, feathering, density-building, texturing, scar concealment, etc., in order to produce undetectable natural results. It is simply the most realistic, non-invasive, cost-efficient hair loss treatment out there. If done correctly it is seamless, undetectable and, in many cases, unbelievable!
Why do I need a touch up?
Once the ink has “settled” and healed and sometimes in some spots the ink will disappear. The skin treats the tattoo as a trauma so it tries to push the ink out as it heals. This is normal. Once it heals, we see the final result and we can reapply where needed.
How do I take care of my scalp after the procedure?
Please for the next 10 days avoid:
– Sun Exposure
– Going swimming or diving
– Makeup on and around your scalp
– Scratching your scalp while it is healing
Scalp micropigmentation is non-invasive and requires no down time. In most cases, you will not need to take any extended time away from work, school, or other functions. After treatment it is common to notice slight redness on the scalp for 2-3 days post session. This redness subsides quickly and most clients return to work either right away or within a couple days. Clients are also allowed to wear hats or headwear should they feel the need.
How long do the results last?
After completion of your treatment (3-4 sessions) a client should expect the strength of the color to last for many years. Over a longer term, a client will very gradually begin to notice slight lightening (not discolor) of the treatment. When this occurs they can undergo a brief “touch up” session to restore any fading and secure many more years of their style.
Does it hurt?
For most clients, the pain is minimal and it’s consistently less painful than traditional tattoos. After your session, you won’t experience any further discomfort.
Are the blades disposable?
Our blades are 100% disposable avoiding any type of cross contamination.
