As hair restoration processes and technology have developed and produced better results, micropigmentation has emerged as a technique that has greatly improved over the past few years. This option offers the illusion of real hair and a quite different result than other restoration techniques such as medication, transplants, or FUE procedures.
Micropigmentation provides an alternative to surgeries that is permanent and can be used effectively for both men and women who are seeking reparative options for thinning hair, scars, and other concerns. By applying medical-grade pigments to the scalp, micropigmentation mirrors the look of very short hair and can produce a great result for men with closely shaved hair.
Candidates for Micropigmentation
Micropigmentation can be effectively applied to patients of any skin tone or hair color. It is a great alternative for those who are ineligible for transplant surgery or are looking for an non-invasive treatment. Patients with scarring, such as those with linear scars left after a follicular unit transplant surgery may be able to use this option to hide any residual scarring.
The ink which is used in the procedure is fully organic and does not contain the harmful chemicals or metallic ingredients of traditional tattoo ink. In addition, pigments are applied more superficially than traditional tattoos, leading to minimal pain during the procedure. Aftercare and maintenance after the completion of the procedure is also minimal and the cost can be less than other hair restoration options.
