Hair loss is an extremely common issue for men after they reach a certain age. It is unfortunately very tough to prevent or stop hair loss because it is primarily caused by genetics and natural changes in your hormones. While balding may be an inevitable part of life for most men, you do not have to be unhappy with your appearance. There are now several medical procedures that can reverse the effects of hair loss. Scalp micropigmentation is one of the safest and most effective of these procedures.
What Is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp micropigmentation is a cosmetic procedure that helps hide your hair loss by using microscopic needles to tattoo the scalp. The pigmentation added to the scalp is designed to look exactly like a hair follicle. This gives the appearance of a full head of hair without having to undergo a hair transplant procedure. Scalp micropigmentation is so effectively at creating the illusion of a full head of hair that it can be used on any skin tone.
What to Expect During the Treatment Process
The scalp micropigmentation treatment process begins with you visiting our office for a consultation appointment. Our trained professionals will closely examine your scalp during this appointment. This will let them know exactly where to place the tiny dots of pigmentation to replicate a natural hair line. It will also ensure the tattoos match the color and shade of your real hair.
The trained professional will create an outline of your new hairline during the first appointment. They will also fill in all of your bald spots. The first appointment will take about three to four hours. You will return one week later for the second treatment session. The color and shade of the hair will need to be adjusted as the body naturally absorbs some of the pigment. The second treatment session should last about two to three hours. You will return the following week for the third and final session. Everything will be touched up and perfected during this appointment, so it should only last about one hour.
Results and Recovery
The scalp micropigmentation process will feel exactly like getting a regular tattoo. You may have some slight redness on your scalp after each session, but it will not last for more than two days. You will have absolutely no downtime when using this procedure to fix your hair loss. The realistic results are designed to last about five years. If you are happy with your look, then you can return for another treatment at this time.
