Support & Advice Appearance Tips Scalp Micropigmentation What is scalp micropigmentation? Scalp micropigmentation is very detailed non-surgical treatment, similar to that of tattooing whereby pigments are used to create micro hairs and therefore the appearance of a full head of hair. How long does it last? Unlike normal tattoos and as with other permanent make-up procedures the ink does not go as deep. Therefore, individuals who opt for scalp micropigmentation might require top-ups every few years depending on how it takes to their skin. How long does it take? Each process is tailored to the client’s individual needs and wants and would start with a consultation to discuss things such as colour, density and style. That would be followed by up to three sessions to obtain the final look. What are the benefits? Scalp micropigmentation might be a suitable choice for those who are either not candidates for hair transplantation (as with alopecia areata, totalis and universlalis) and who equally don’t find wigs ideal. It can be used on both completely bald heads and can even be used to help to camouflage thinning hair.
