Scalp Pigmentation

Background:

Scalp Micro-pigmentation essentially is a medical hairline tattoo, which serves to correct thinning hair in men and women.   Most often performed on men, this procedure will give the look of a full, youthful head of shortly-trimmed hair.   The benefits of scalp pigmentation procedures are:

- hairlines on partly bald or fully bald heads – camouflage the symptoms of all levels of alopecia – hides scars, burns, and birthmarks – rejuvenates the look of the crown – gives a completely realistic hairline – is ideal for slowly developing crown-thinning and balding process.

Procedure (following detailed consultation)

I adhere strictly to standard Universal Precautions for infection control practices, common in the medical and semi-medical professions. Sterile medical gloves and disposable single use needles are my regulations.

At the first appointment, I will carefully pick the right pigment for your scalp to assure the right fit. Secondly, I make sure (if needed) to carefully design a hairline with accurate measurements for a defined structure or perhaps more natural look. Depending on you.

Before the procedure, I will numb you up with a local anesthetic, to assure comfort and a nearly pain free treatment. You may experience some discomfort once in the while, however, I keep applying numbing solution for continued comfort.

The initial treatment duration varies in time and depends on areas to be covered. Usually between 3-5 hours, depending on your hair density, and level of hair loss.  To determine the length and cost of treatment in your case, I apply the Hamilton-Norwood Scale, the generally accepted measure of hair loss level.

Second appointment will take place about 1-2 weeks later. This appointment takes about 2-4 hours to perfect density, shade and color.

It can be devastating and life-changing. Micro-pigmentation is an incredible effective solution to restore confidence and looks. It is suited for all skin-types and colors. Pigments can be matched with any existing hair. The procedure normally takes place over 3 sessions, each taking approx 3-4 hours with at least one week between sessions. The process allows for a very gradual and subtle rejuvenation/infill of the hairline, rarely identified even by close friends and family. 10516880_404896176315769_4930435134667367198_n 10393783_404896032982450_180575363890780893_n 10502248_404896262982427_1482384523062817053_n 10487274_404896112982442_4279162653600068320_n After the Procedure,  After-Care

After the treatment, you may experience light redness, little bit of scabbing in areas of pigmentation, and perhaps some exfoliation. This process may take place for about 7 days. Key is to keep the scalp lubricated. At appointment time, you will receive ointment to keep areas moist. 

AFTER the treatment, you must avoid any activities which cause a lot of sweating, and avoid washing the scalp for 3 days. For the next two weeks, avoid sun exposure, salt water and pool water. Even after the treatment, you must be careful with your scalp pigmentation. Sun exposure, salt water and pool water will eventually fade the pigments. I would strongly recommend to wear a hat if your head is exposed to the sunlight for longer than 20 Minutes. Also, avoid suntan lotion, unless it is a suntan lotion with all natural ingredients or those specifically formulated for tattoos. 
Touch ups are usually after about 2-3 years. However, we do live in Florida! Lots of sun exposure, ocean, pool etc….Therefore, touch ups are more likely necessary after 1 -1.5 years. Touch up charges run $180 an hour.
