What is the treatment process?
A fairly modest treatment to undertake, the scalp micro pigmentation method consists of depositing small ‘dots’ of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin, by using a fine needle. The artist creates a deception of a full head of hair.
The client usually requires 2-3 sessions, each lasting approximately 2-6 hours, but time does vary depending on individual requirements. The technician repeats the process until both he and the client are satisfied. The goal is the point that hair cannot be distinguished from the surrounding real hair.
General hair loss
Most clients need a full head treatment. This means the entire top of the head. And a blending area into the ‘horseshoe’. Most clients from a Norwood 3 onwards will require this. Even if they have a substantial amount of natural hair remaining. This happens because your upper crown area of the head needs to have its “hair density” increased. After the treatment, it looks perfect when comparing it with the sides and the back of your head.
Camouflaging scars from hair transplants
Tissue that appears when a scar gets in place on the scalp is a bit trickier to work with. It usually requires more sessions. A common scenario is for the client to have a full head treatment as detailed above. With the addition of scar camouflage work. Whilst the rest of the treatment may be complete after 2-4 sessions. The scar may need an additional session or two to achieve the optimum level of camouflage.
