What is scalp micropigmentation?
A hair tattoo, or scalp micropigmentation, is a cosmetic tattoo that gives the illusion of a close buzz cut hairstyle on a bald head. The procedure can also be used to conceal the scars from hair transplantation or to make thinning hair seem thicker. Watch the video to learn more about the scalp micropigmentation procedure.
The ink used in scalp micropigmentation is high-quality organic ink made for scalps. The tecnique uses inks in grey tones which will not change over time.
To achieve the look, micro needles are used to deposit ink impressions into the very top layer of the dermis. This procedure perfectly recreates the look of full hair follicles
Each scalp micropigmentation hairline is unique and custom designed for every individual experiencing baldness.
Age, ethnicity, skin color, skeletal structure and your preference is always taken into consideration when re-creating the hairline
How does scalp micropigmentation work?
Scalp micropigmentation is an innovative way to solve baldness. It is the process of having tiny dots resembling a stubble tattooed on your scalp. It gives you a natural-looking buzz-cut hairstyle. It is preferred by many sufferers of hair loss because it is immediate and does not involve invasive measures and scarring.
Step 1: Consultation
Once you book a consultation, we will meet one-on-one to discuss your hairline and procedure in detail. You will also be able to select a time and a date for your scalp micropigmentation appointment.
Step 2: First Session
Your hairline will be drawn on again, any new questions will be discussed. We will begin the scalp micropigmentation process and apply a conservative amount of pigment to your scalp. The full head will be worked on during every session so that the color and density will build uniformly all over. The color and density of the pigment will be carefully chosen to create a natural appearance. After this session you will have an idea of the overall look and you will have to be patient, because SMP is a process and looks better after each session.
Step 3: Follow-up session
We will check how everything healed and how your skin absorbed the ink. At this point we will re-asses the shade of the ink and see if we can go darker. The second session is a perfect time to firm up on the design of the hairline. With each session the results will start looking more real. Each step is exciting and the final session is as exciting for a client as it is for an artist. The final result will be visible about 3-4 weeks after the last session as the skin heals and the ink cures.
