What is Scalp Micro Pigmentation and how does it work?

Sadly, hair loss is a reality for thousands of people in the U.K. It can have a huge impact on someone’s confidence and self-esteem. Thankfully, there are lots of different hair loss solutions available, so we know 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. These are 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. These tiny pockets help to imitate the appearance of individual follicles. Scalp micro pigmentation can be very flexible and can be tailored to each individual person.

A client will be able to choose the:

  • The shape of the hairline.
  • The colour of the pigment.
  • 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 – Before & After.

scalp micro pigmentation

Scalp micro pigmentation 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. This allows you to discuss your needs and decide if micro pigmentation is the right option for you. Treatments can usually take 2 or 3 sessions, and there is no recovery period. This means you can return to your regular life quickly. It is also a great solution for those that want to cover scars, alopecia or blemishes. This is because it can hide scar tissue or mimic hair in the case of alopecia.

Scalp micro pigmentation 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 they help your hair to grow. It merely mimics hair follicles, looking like a freshly shaven head.

If you are interested in having scalp micro pigmentation carried out then we would advise that you attend one of our free consultations.
