How does scalp micropigmentation differ from traditional tattoos?
While both scalp micropigmentation and traditional tattoos involve depositing pigments into the skin, scalp micropigmentation uses specialized equipment, needles, and pigments designed specifically for replicating the appearance of hair follicles. The depth of pigment placement and the techniques used in scalp micropigmentation are different from traditional tattooing, ensuring a more natural and realistic result.
Is scalp micropigmentation permanent?
Scalp micropigmentation is considered a semi-permanent treatment, as the pigments will gradually fade over time. The longevity of the results can vary depending on factors such as sun exposure, skin type, and aftercare. Touch-up sessions may be required every three to five years to maintain the desired appearance.
How many scalp micropigmentation sessions are needed?
At Anderson Center for Hair, in partnership with Scalp Clinique Micro, we use a multi-session approach to ensure optimal results and safety. Typically, two to four sessions are required, with each session spaced approximately two to four weeks apart. The exact number of sessions will depend on the individual’s hair loss severity and desired outcome.
Is scalp micropigmentation painful?
The level of discomfort experienced during scalp micropigmentation varies from person to person. Some patients may feel mild discomfort, while others may find the procedure relatively painless. Our skilled practitioners use advanced techniques and equipment to minimize discomfort during the treatment.
How long does each scalp micropigmentation session take?
Each scalp micropigmentation session, including micro scalp and micropigmentation, can take anywhere from two to four hours, depending on the size of the treatment area and the complexity of the hair loss pattern. Our multi-session approach allows us to gradually build up the desired density and appearance of your hair, ensuring optimal results.
What is the recovery time for scalp micropigmentation?
