What’s the difference between scalp micropigmentation and a tattoo?
If you suffer from hair loss or hair thinning, you might have tried every cream, medicine, or conditioner to no avail. Luckily, scalp micropigmentation is the number one method for efficient, long-lasting results. Though the procedure is often compared to getting a tattoo on your scalp, there are actually several key differences that make the process more permanent and specifically tailored to your needs.
- More Experience is Necessary – A tattoo artists could not apply our treatment; our technicians have extensive medical training to ensure that our procedure truly replicates 3D hair follicles. The team at Hairline Ink has spent thousands of hours perfecting our craft to provide consistent, lasting results every time.
- Our Special Pigment – Regular tattoo ink will not give the same results as our specially blended pigment. Before you undergo our procedure, we work with you to find the perfect hue that compliments your skin color, eyebrows, and facial hair. Furthermore, the pigment does not separate like traditional ink, meaning it will not discolor over time, even in direct sunlight. Ultimately, our pigment is longer lasting, making it a more reliable hair loss solution.
- Our Procedure – Tattoo artists apply their ink to the middle layer of the dermis which can cause smudging and fading of colors. Our technique is performed using multiple, different shaped needles that are placed in the upper dermis to better replicate natural hair growth. Applying to the upper area prevents the pigmentation from spreading over time, unlike a tattoo that is highly sensitive to skin changes.
Because the upper dermis is highly sensitive to scarring, body fat, and skin turgor, the technician must have a higher level of proficiency. The needles need to exactly compliment the patient’s specific needs, making our procedure more exact and therefore more rewarding. Through scalp micropigmentation, you are guaranteed a treatment that is tailored to you.
