What is scalp micropigmentation?

Scalp micropigmentation is a cosmetic treatment that improves the appearance of thinning or lost hair. For many people, changes in hair growth leave their scalp with a patchy, uneven appearance. 

Regardless of whether you’re fully bald or just dealing with thinning hair on certain parts of your scalp, micropigmentation offers a solution. The treatment uses the same technique as having a tattoo on your skin. Instead of creating a pattern or design, scalp micropigmentation creates the appearance of slight stubble.

Scalp pigmentation isn’t only for men, and it isn’t always done on a completely bald scalp. Micropigmentation creates subtle shading across the scalp, making thin areas far less noticeable. The process is an excellent fit for women who have thinning hair and want to create a less visible distinction between their scalp and hair. 

What is the process for getting micropigmentation?

When you come in for scalp micropigmentation, the first step is discussing your treatment goals. This is more than a one-size-fits-all treatment; achieving the best results requires thoughtful planning. 

Your hair is unique in terms of pigment, thickness, and hairline. All of these factors must be considered when planning your scalp micropigmentation. 

You’ll be pleased to know that the needles used in micropigmentation are smaller than those used in traditional tattooing. The pigment delivery does not extend as deep within your skin. This means the process is more comfortable than having a traditional tattoo done. 

Everyone is different. You can always ask for a break if you begin to feel uncomfortable during your session. If you’re having scalp micropigmentation done across your entire scalp, you may need to book more than one session to complete your treatment. 

Why choose scalp micropigmentation over hair transplantation?

Many people prefer scalp micropigmentation over surgical hair transplantation or hair plugs. Once you see before and after photos of people who’ve had the procedure done, you’ll see why this option appeals to so many. 

Some of the advantages of scalp micropigmentation over hair transplantation include the following:

  • Less pain
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Lower cost
  • Less downtime
  • No need for incisions
