Enhancing Hair Transplants
Hair loss, whether minor or more extensive, can affect young and old individuals, men and women alike for a wide variety of reasons. While some instances of hair loss are the result of genetics, others are the result of causes ranging from the use of certain medicines, to trauma, to autoimmune disorders.
While hair loss is not always an indicator of a more serious medical complication, many individuals who suffer from hair loss suffer from significant anxiety and a loss of self confidence as a result of their appearance, leading them to seek out various treatment options to either mask or lessen the severity of their hair loss. One common approach that many seek out to try and restart hair growth in areas of loss is undergoing a hair transplant procedure.
Here at Hairline Ink, we know that hair loss can occur for a number of different reasons, and that choosing a treatment option that works with your life and your goals can be an extremely difficult and personal decision. Fortunately, we have helped thousands of people just like you find an affordable, safe, and guaranteed solution to hair thinning and hair loss in the form of an advanced treatment option called Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP). Whether used on its own or in conjunction with other treatment options, like hair transplants, scalp micropigmentation can help individuals mask hair loss, hair thinning, and even scars, to secure the look and self confidence that they are seeking.

About Hair Transplant Procedures
There are two main hair transplant procedures that are utilized by individuals hoping to stimulate the re-growth of hair on parts of their head that have experienced hair loss. The most popular is a procedure known as strip excision harvesting. This procedure works by literally transplanting sections of the scalp that are still experiencing hair growth on to sections of the scalp that are affected by hair loss. Depending on the extent of transplantation being performed, a typical procedure will last anywhere from four to eight hours. In these procedures, doctors will numb a portion of an individual’s scalp and remove 3- to 4-inches of hair-producing scalp and divide this into hundreds, or in some cases, thousands of smaller grafts. The location from which the grafts were removed will be stitched shut.
Next, surgeons will create small incisions in the sections of the scalp that are experiencing hair loss and insert the grafts into these incisions. Over the next few weeks, the hair that has been transplanted will fall out, but this is to be expected. Anywhere from 6-9 months later, the sections of scalp that received a transplant should begin growing hair naturally. In fact, some transplant recipients can experience as much as 60% of their natural hair growth following a hair transplant procedure.
Another hair transplant option is follicular unit extraction, or FUE. Although less common than strip excision harvesting, follicular unit extraction does provide a hair transplant option that requires less recovery time and keeps recipients from having a large, linear scar. In FUE procedures, much smaller amounts of hair-producing scalp holding individual follicles with 1-4 strands of hair are removed and carefully inserted into tiny incisions in the scalp. These implantations are done in a very precise pattern and arrangement to hopefully create the appearance of natural hair growth.

About Scalp Micropigmentation
Unlike hair transplant procedures, scalp micropigmentation is a guaranteed and non-invasive way for individuals to mask the effects of widespread or localized hair loss. Much like getting a tattoo, scalp micropigmentation involves the injection of small amounts of pigment underneath the skin in a widespread series of tiny dots placed across the scalp by a precise computer controlled system. The pigment that is added to your scalp is carefully matched to your natural skin tone and hair color so that when the procedure is finished, these dots create the illusion of hair that is naturally starting to re-grow on the head, much like the appearance of hair beginning to re-grow after a complete head shave or tight buzzcut.
Scalp micropigmentation can be utilized to help individuals with both minor or significant hair loss, covering the scalp entirely or simply being utilized to help fill in isolated patches of hair loss or hair thinning. For most of our clients, the scalp micropigmentation process proceeds as follows:
- During your initial consultation, you will meet with members of our dedicated team to discuss your desires and to create a plan of action for dealing with your hair thinning or hair loss.
- Once we create this detailed plan, treatment can begin on your first visit to our clinic. At this time, we will begin adding pigment under the skin on your scalp in the area or areas that you would like to see addressed. In order to help create as realistic of an appearance as possible, this first session will only involve a first pass at adding pigment to your skin. You may notice some redness on your scalp, but overall, the level of pain that you feel should be minimal.
- On your second visit, we will fill out the scalp micropigmentation, creating the appearance of a dense and full head of hair. For many of our patients, this second visit to our clinic will be their final visit, and they will leave with a guaranteed solution to their hair loss or hair thinning concerns.
- Depending on an individual’s unique circumstances, some clients will need to return to our clinic for a third and final appointment, at which point their treatment should be complete.
While scalp micropigmentation has a number of advantages over other solutions to hair loss, it can also be used in conjunction with a number of these solutions and treatment options in order to create a comprehensive approach. In many instances, individuals may choose to undergo scalp micropigmentation before and/or after a hair transplant procedure to achieve their ultimate aesthetic goals.
Why Use Scalp Micropigmentation along with a Hair Transplant
Many individuals choose to undergo a hair transplant procedure because they want to experience real hair grown in sections where they have experienced thinning or loss. However, as discussed above, hair transplants can take months before natural hair re-growth takes effect, and unfortunately, results cannot be guaranteed. In fact, some individuals who undergo a hair transplant procedure never experience hair re-growth at all, and are left with scars from their initial procedure and the same hair loss, or worse, that they had before they started seeking out solutions to their situation.
As such, an increasing number of both men and women are looking at scalp micropigmentation as a sort of “stop gap” before undergoing a hair transplant procedure. By receiving scalp micropigmentation in advance of a hair transplant, individuals can mask the effects of hair loss and buy themselves some time while they wait for their hair transplant to take effect. Additionally, should the hair transplant fail, the individual will still have a solution in place to mask the effects of their hair loss.
Even if an individual chooses to undergo a hair transplant procedure first, they can still receive scalp micropigmentation after their transplant procedure in order to fill in any areas in which hair failed to re-grow, or to help mask some of the scars that can result from a hair transplant. While specific timelines can vary from patient to patient, we recommend that individuals looking to receive scalp micropigmentation PRIOR to a hair transplant do so roughly a month before their scheduled transplant procedure. For those looking to undergo scalp micropigmentation AFTER a hair transplant, it’s best to usually wait for at least a year.

I often find myself browsing through the pictures you have taken of all the customers because of the beauty and awesomeness you capture every time. WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS HOW HAPPY WE ARE! YOUR PHOTOS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES! AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL, STUNNING..I COULD GO ON and ON!! Thank you again, especially for my Husband who can now Enjoy life without his hat! My husband is once again happy and not ashamed of himself anymore. Thank you So Much! One million Stars for you!!!!
Visiting hairline ink was an incredible experience. My technician showed incredible compassion towards me and I felt confident in his expertise from the moment we met. I had the unfortunate experience of having scar work done from a rival company. I was left with poor results and I felt that it was impossible to put an end to my nightmare. After only one session the scar was almost completely gone! I believe that Hairline Ink is the best in the business and I'm glad that I found them!
Never had a tattoo before and this was absolutely Amazing, I love my new SMP. They were the best, did a fantastic job and really care about their clients. They made me feel very comfortable and the communication was best. I am planning on going back for my 3rd session and I can't wait. Thank you 🙂
If you're reading this because you're on the fence - DO IT! I was at a wedding last week, hanging out with a bunch of guys my age and balding came up (quite a few of them were bald or close to it) and one of them says to me "If I had as much hair as you do, I would never buzz it that short - let it grow out!" Mission accomplished. THANK YOU!
This Procedure has changed my life! I only wished I did it much sooner. It's very low maintenance and I get to enjoy a perfect realistic hairline everyday for the rest of my life. I can now go without a hat with great confidence. People actually think my new buzz cut hairline is real. They ask me who my barber is and compliment me! They have no idea I had the Procedure done. You can't go wrong with Hairline Ink. You will be a New younger looking person in no time.
This, by far, will be the most realistic tattoo you'll ever see! I've kept my scalp treatment a secret from absolutely no-one. I have to convince everyone it's a tattoo because no-one ever believes me!
I had two treatments and I can’t say enough positive things about my experience. My practitioner was very friendly and professional. No BS. The treatments were explained thoroughly and done with minimal discomfort. They make you feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. I highly recommend Hairline ink!
Having been bald for the last 5 years i can honestly say that hairline ink has changed my life. I would strongly 5 star recommend this treatment from hairline ink for anybody looking to stop having to feel the need to wear a fitted baseball all day every day. I want to thank everyone at hairline ink. They did a amazing job with my treatment. In summary, guys stop thinking about doing this treatment AND just get it done. You won't regret it!!!
