What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

If you want guaranteed results that look natural and actually relieve the frustrating effects of hair loss, Scalp Micropigmentation is the choice for you.

While there are many available options for treating hair loss, most are expensive, unreliable and frustrating. Hair transplants can leave nasty scars and often cost far more than the value you receive. Hair Clubs are also very expensive and can require literally a lifetime of returning and maintaining. Wigs are another option, but most men simply don’t feel comfortable with the potential embarrassment which can be caused by a displacement. Wigs also need continual maintenance and the reality of it is this: wigs rarely do a convincing job of covering up hair loss.

Scalp Micropigmentation Explained

Scalp Micropigmentation is a highly advanced method of cosmetic pigmentation. Similar to the process of getting a tattoo, tiny needles are used to add colored pigment to the scalp. Scalp Micropigmentation is an extremely intricate procedure with a guaranteed result. The quality of your results depend on two things: Using the most up-to-date equipment, and getting your treatment from the most skilled and experienced practitioner. At Hairline Ink, we use a special computer controlled system, the most cutting edge technology in the industry, to ensure you receive a consistent appearance across the head and completely flawless results. Each treatment is tailored to your exact skin color and type. As Hairline Ink was founded with the intention of being the leaders in the Scalp Micropigmentation industry, we only employ practitioners whose expertise is undeniable with a record of proven results.

Scalp Micropigmentation Treatment Process

Treatment is typically done across 3 or 4 visits. Below, we’ll take you through the process step-by-step:

  1. Your initial consultation appointment is first. We meet with you to gain an understanding of what results you want to achieve from your treatment. We then create a tentative plan of action, mapping out what is required to reach your goal and get the results you desire.
  2. Next, treatment begins. Years of experience have taught us that it’s best to be conservative on your first treatment in order to achieve the optimal end result. After the first treatment your scalp will be a little red, but within a single day this typically returns to normal.
  3. The second treatment allows us to fill in more detail and go a shade darker on your initial treatment. Any concerns, questions or requests will be handled during this meeting.
  4. Occasionally, but not always, a third procedure may take place. Third treatments are typically done by the request of the patient, if they would like to go even darker.

How it Works

When we implant our ink into the affected area, we will carefully match your natural hair color exactly. Additionally, we shade darker than your natural colour, which gives the illusion of a shadow and the appearance of a three-dimensional, full head of hair.

The treatment at Hairline Ink is administered softly, in a gentle approach, and results in a completely natural look.

Client’s requirements often differ. During your consultation, we will talk to you about exactly what results you want to get, and ensure a custom procedure, designed to give you the desired effects that you are looking for.

The Range of Scalp Micropigmentation Options

There are a variety of options available. We have outlined some of the most popular below:

Soft Hairline and Widowed Peak

Many people like you will want their current hairline lowered, replenishing where it has receded over time, and giving the illusion and appearance of fuller hair. We follow the natural hairline by layering the impressions, thus giving the natural appearance of hair with no hard line. We make sure to match the ink color perfectly to that of the client, resulting in an incredibly effective and strikingly natural result.

Adding Density to Thinning Hair

Men, women, and children utilize Scalp Micropigmentation to cover or fill-in thinning hair. Thinning can result in a wide, undesirable scalp area showing through the hair. Typically, the person will have an even coverage across the scalp, but the density drops as the hair loss progresses. Scalp Micropigmentation replaces the lost density, resulting in the appearance of an even, full head of hair.

With this focused and specialized approach, we treat the front hairline and let it blur into density with a natural look. The initial treatment is gentle and soft, increasing density throughout the rest of the thinning hair. We also create a three-dimensional effect, giving the appearance of a natural shadow. This technique is a great choice for you if you have had a hair transplant but didn’t end up with the desired density.

The Permanent Edge Up

The “Edge Up”, which is also known as the “Jamie Fox”, is an extremely popular choice. With this particular procedure, it is very important to begin conservatively with the hairline. There is a lot of preparation required before starting to create the hairline and a side temple area first. We carefully match the color and density precisely during these procedures to create the illusion of a head full of hair with a sharp hairline, in addition to a robust and youthful edge-up.Hairline Ink creates the very best edge-up styles which are often sought after by celebrities.

Scalp Micropigmentation Treatments for Women

Many women suffer from hair loss and thinning hair. Hairline Ink specializes in creating an underlying effect, which creates the illusion of a natural, full head of hair. This is the ideal treatment for woman. Many women need color added to their scalp to cover natural separations made from long hair. If you can see scalp, we cover this up to allow for it to look like a fuller thicker hair. Scalp Micropigmentation is perfect if you are a woman who is thinning on the top or across the crown section of their head. We have worked with and treated many female alopecia and surgery scar clients.

Scalp Micropigmentation for Hair Transplant Patients

If you have had a hair transplant, you may have been left with scars as a result of this procedure. The technique we use at Hairline Ink is a highly advanced style of Scalp Micropigmentation which doesn’t just cover the scars, but also gives the illusion of a fuller head of hair, by adding density to existing hair, or creating the look of a shaved head, depending on the client.

Scalp Micropigmentation is the perfect solution for the effective concealment of FUT strip scars, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) scars, scalp reduction scars, and Historic Plug or Cobblestone scars from old-fashioned hair restoration procedures.

Most hair transplants are not as effective as Scalp Micropigmentation due to the sheer lack of donor hair. People are often left with only two choices: They can continue having multiple hair restoration treatments that leave patients with more scars and cost even more money, or proceed to Scalp Micropigmentation, which provides lifelong results and no ongoing maintenance – Seems like a pretty easy choice, right?

Hair Transplants

Some of our patients will come to us after having as many as fifteen hair transplants. After they went under FUE or strip scar surgery, they are left with severe scarring, plug holes on their heads and a resulting sense of insecurity. We utilize Scalp Micropigmentation to cover up your scars, giving you a renewed sense of confidence. Our procedure gives you a guaranteed result, putting an end to frequent hair transplant surgeries, all while covering up the scars from previous surgeries.

(Clients experience redness immediately following treatment, from anywhere from 30 minutes to 8 hours, depending on their skin type.)

The Hairline Ink technique has a proven track record in camouflaging hair transplant scars for clients. For scar cover up there are two options:

Keep your hair long, in this case we will go under the hair to camouflage the scar.
The second option, is to shave your hair down in order to blend it into the follicles and completely camouflage the scars. This option is the recommended choice and takes between 2-3 sessions for the optimal results to be achieved.

Scalp Micropigmentation + Hair Transplant Combination Treatment

Many hair replacement physicians will refer their clients to Hairline Ink to augment a hair transplant. Scalp Micropigmentation can work with hair transplant as a pre-planned combination procedure. By combining traditional hair restoration and Hairline Ink’s highly advanced technique, the client has double the benefits: real texturized hair, with the appearance of thickness and fullness that only Scalp Micropigmentation can provide — a truly innovative way to achieve real results.

It is best to visit us in person for a consultation to decide at which stage of your hair transplant Scalp Micropigmentation should be performed. In the majority of cases, the hair transplant procedure should be done in the first instance. However, there may be cases in which the Scalp Micropigmentation should begin before the medical procedures. A consultation with Hairline Ink is always recommended, as we love speaking with potential clients to answer any and all questions you may have.

Why People Choose Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp Micropigmentation will give you a look of a full head of hair, just after a fresh – close cut hair style. No one will notice that it is an ink treatment, you can return to work the day after your procedure, people will think you look great, but they will have no idea that you underwent treatment. The look of our Scalp Micropigmentation is so real that no person and no camera will ever pick up on your secret.

There are a wide range of reasons you may be looking into Scalp Micropigmentation treatment. We have treated thousands of clients, each with very differing reasons and causes of hair loss. Whatever the reason, Scalp Micropigmentation is your best option.

Unlimited Density

With regular hair transplant procedures, particularly FUE, most hair-density will be lost within the first few months, so it can often take up to a year to get the best results out of those procedures.

With the Scalp Micropigmentation technique, density will be added, and the desired results start to appear almost immediately after treatment commences.

Ongoing Maintenance

The length at which your hair can be kept after the completion of both procedures is entirely dependent on your individual hairstyle. With the combined approach, you can have more density and fullness without the need to shave.

Corrective Procedures

Since Hairline Ink has been in business, we have frequently been called upon to fix the work of other Scalp Micropigmentation technicians. It is not uncommon for poorly trained practitioners to cause undesirable results on patients, which is why Hairline Ink offers reparation works to rectify poorly done past treatments and get you the look you desire..

Hair-Related Disease and Treatment

There are many different types of hair related diseases. Sometimes as a side effect of medication, you may start to lose your hair and experience a thinning of the hair. Lupus is becoming increasingly common in diagnosis globally and one of the biggest side effects that sufferers of this disease have to contend with is hair loss.

Thyroid problems, specifically in woman can lead to a scattered loss of hair, caused by both under and overactive thyroids.

Alopecia is a hair loss disease that affects many men and women of all ages. It can begin to appear unexpectedly with no initial symptoms, and currently there is no definitive cure that has been discovered.

Cancer and HIV are also two major diseases which can lead to thinning or a complete loss of hair as well.

Typical treatment options that are commonly available for those affected by hair loss are not very effective, and are usually very temporary. These options sometimes include painful corticosteroid injections, topical corticosteroid creams and lotions, minoxidil, dithranol creams, and surgeries.

Hairline Ink offers a completely effective procedure, using the Scalp Micropigmentation treatment to completely cover up the symptoms of Alopecia Areata, Totalis, Universalis, Lupus and many other hair loss related illnesses.
