Scalp Micropigmentation From RHRLI
For decades, men and women have used various types of concealers to hide their thinning hair and emerging scalp as well as the linear scar left behind by the old FUT (Follicular Hair Transplant) or strip surgery.
What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp Micropigmentation is a highly advanced method of cosmetic pigmentation. using tiny needles to add color to the scalp to mimic the look of hair follicles.
Before & After for Scalp Micropigmentation
How does Scalp Micropigmentation Work?
Scalp Micropigmentation practitioners use a specialized instrument that uses a reciprocating needling to apply a stippled pattern between the scalp’s pores. The micropigmentation dots are tiny – just 0.1mm each.
Much like getting a tattoo, the tiny, computer-controlled, micro-fine scalp micropigmentation needles add colored pigment to the scalp in triple clusters to create the consistent pattern and optimal results.
Who is Best Suited for Scalp Micropigmentation?
Thanks to the unique application involved, Scalp Micropigmentation enables the patient to attain a normal-looking donor area without additional hair transplants since the process addresses both scarring and see-through areas.
How Long Does The Procedure Take?
To achieve optimal results, Scalp Micropigmentation usually requires three sessions, generally spaced about 2-3 weeks apart. Each session, due to the care and detail required, involves a minimum of 2-4 hours, depending upon what is exactly needed. For example, blending in strip scars requires treating the area above and below the scar for best results.
Session One demonstrates how well the scar tissue responds to the process, the color used and the inks.
In Session Two, the color acceptance of the scar tissue and ink depth from session one’s results are analyzed. Adjustments are made accordingly as the process is repeated. Stippling density is increased and any changes to the ink color and placement depth are made if needed.
In Session Three, technical refinement of the process occurs to ensure a custom camouflage of the scar that blends naturally into the patient’s existing hair so the results are essentially undetectable.
Unfortunately, because it is a very precise, detailed process, attempting to do Scalp Micropigmentation more quickly can severely compromise the results.
What Are My Options For Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp Micropigmentation comes in three forms:
- Scar camouflage for FUE transplants
- Filling in sparse areas to create a denser look within the hairline
- A full head process to mimic a buzz cut or shaved look.
Why Choose Scalp Micropigmentation Over Other Options?
Scalp Micropigmentation is a permanent look without any products that can be washed out.
Does The Procedure Hurt?
Scalp Micropigmentation generally causes minimal discomfort.
On a scale of 1-10, it’s generally ranked as a 2.
Is Scalp Micropigmentation Permanent?
Longevity depends upon how you care for it. Because sun can gradually fade the pigmentation, a good sunscreen is important. A light touch up might eventually be required.
What’s the Difference Between Scalp Micropigmentation and a Regular Head Tattoo?
Scalp Micropigmentation uses organic ink rather than the oxide-based ink used for tattoos. Also, Scalp Micropigmentation is specifically designed to blend in and camouflage, not stand out like tattoo designs.
What is The Healing Process Like?
Following all instructions from the technician is essential, especially for the first 1-4 days, which are crucial to the healing process. That includes no hair washing, swimming or extreme workouts that can cause scalp sweating because Scalp Micropigmentation involves a dry healing process. Getting the head wet would impede proper healing.
