What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp micropigmentation is an advanced medical procedure intended to stop male and female pattern baldness. It’s a pigmentation process that is similar to tattooing but is much more sophisticated. While the process does not cause hair to grow back, it makes it appear to observers that the subject has a full head of hair. In the hands of a competent specialist, scalp micropigmentation can create a visual effect that is indistinguishable from a shaved head with an intact hairline.
If you’re interested in scalp micropigmentation, it’s wise to do your research and find a reputable clinic. Scalp micropigmentation is a very exact science, and it’s easy to mess up. Cheap clinics or independent specialists who claim to be able to conduct the procedure for low prices, especially in the hundreds of dollars range, should set off alarm bells in your head. Your appearance is a precious thing, and you should not entrust it to someone that will cut corners.
The reason that scalp micropigmentation is so expensive is that there are many steps and a lot of skill involved. The procedure involves multiple stages of pigmentation. The first includes a complete covering of the scalp with a lighter-tinged pigment. At the second appointment, darker pigments are scattered unevenly throughout the scalp. This gives the appearance of a freshly-shaved head of hair.
Scalp micropigmentation often requires that the client shave their head entirely to make them look natural, which is the case for those who suffer from genetic pattern baldness. For those suffering from a general thinning of the hair, scalp micropigmentation can be used to make the hair appear thicker and fuller. It’s an excellent option for those suffering from multiple kinds of hair loss.
