How Does Scalp Micropigmentation Work?

Hair loss is unavoidable for most people. As we age, our hairline tends to recede and get thinner. Fortunately, there are things you can do to help fix this impending problem. In this video, you will learn about how scalp micropigmentation can be useful to give you a fuller head of hair.

Scalp micropigmentation is an interesting procedure as it does not actually help you grow new hair or lose existing hair. Instead, it attempts to give the illusion that you have more hair by reducing the reflectivity of your scalp in balding spots.

This is done by placing hundreds of small ink dots on your scalp. They mimic the look of natural hair follicles and will make the bald spots look less bald. In a way, it is almost like tattooing your head with hair follicles. However, they are not permanent. Patients can expect this result to last between five to ten years.

The process of scalp micropigmentation can take several hours per visit. This is because each ink dot must be placed one at a time by hand. It will also take several visits to complete the whole process. However, the results speak for themselves.
