Why is Scalp Micropigmentation done in multiple sessions?

For many men, balding can be devastating. Hair loss can destroy a man’s self-esteem and ruin his sense of identity. And even though we’ve put a man on the moon, to this day there is no cure for male pattern baldness. In recent years, scalp micropigmentation has become a popular option for men who wish to stop worrying about their hair loss.

Clients often ask me how many sessions are needed, and why it must be done this way. On today’s blog I will explain why it is important that the procedure is carried out in multiple sessions.

It is crucial to start the process with light pigment, then go progressively darker. No need to overdo it in the initial session by adding too much pigment or creating a hairline that is too low. Everyone’s skin is different, so the first session will allow us to gage how your scalp heals and how it retains the pigment.

Once you’ve had some time to get used to your new look, the follow-up session will provide a chance to evaluate how your skin is healing. At this point, the hairline can be further lowered, and/or we can add more density to the scalp

Rather than risking going too dark or too low, multiple sessions put you in control. You can make gradual adjustments on your second session, and even a third one if you want to fine tune some details. Whether that is adding density or lowering the hairline is up to you

The skin is the largest organ on the body, and it will react differently depending on the area of the body its on. Some parts of your scalp will hold the ink better than others. Therefore, it is best to have multiple sessions to create the perfect look.

It is nearly impossible to get everything to retain exactly as desired in one session. Typically, clients require 2-3 sessions to get the complete look. Spaced a few weeks apart from each other.

Most procedures take 3 sessions but sometimes clients are happy with only two, but on occasion with some compromised skins it may take 4 or more sessions to perfect it. Experienced technician adds more density from the beginning, she/he is also more experienced to work at the proper depth in the skin which retains more pigment as the skin heals.  Even for that reason it is worth going with the experienced artist who will get the job done properly.

Spacing of the sessions is usually minimum of 1 week, but it is best to wait with the final session for 3-4 weeks, because at that time you see exactly what stays and what fades and where the technician has to add and blend some more.
