What is scalp micropigmentation and how does it work?
Unfortunately, hair loss is a reality for thousands of people in the U.K, and can have a huge impact on someone’s confidence and self-esteem. Thankfully, there are lots of different hair loss solutions available, so it is guaranteed that you will be able to find a solution to suit you. From a hair transplant to protein supplements – whether you are looking for a permanent or temporary solution, there’s something out there for you.
One of the solutions we offer at UK Hair Transplant Clinics is scalp micropigmentation. This is essentially small tattoos that replicate the appearance of real hair follicles. The pigment is inserted with a needle within the dermal layer of the skin, in tiny pockets which help to imitate the appearance of individual follicles. Scalp micropigmentation can be extremely flexible and can be tailored to each individual person. A client will be able to choose the shape of the hairline, the colour of the pigment, and the placement of the hairline on the forehead. This makes it a great solution for those that want total control over the shape of their hairline or want a clean, defined look.
Scalp micropigmentation is a permanent solution to hair loss and only requires a small touch up in some cases. There will be a detailed consultation prior to the treatment, where clients can discuss their specific requirements and decide if micropigmentation is the solution for them. Treatments can usually take 2 or 3 sessions, and there is no recovery period – clients can return to their regular lives as soon as possible. It is also a great solution for those that want to cover scars, alopecia or blemishes, as it can provide sufficient camouflage for scar tissue or mimic hair in the case of alopecia.
Scalp micropigmentation is a treatment that will only benefit those with very little or no hair at all growing on their scalp. The micro pigments will not mimic strands of hair, nor will it help your hair to grow – it will merely mimic hair follicles, to imitate the appearance of a freshly shaven head.
