Lately, despite the undoubted effectiveness of FUE Hair Transplantation method, there is a growing interest in the treatment of scalp micro-tattooing, also known as Scalp Micropigmentation.
Scalp Micropigmentation - General Information
It is a specialized procedure which, although similar to the traditional tattooing technique, requires special skill and experience and involves the intradermal injection of tiny pigment particles into the scalp where the problem is located. The quality of the final result depends on whether or not a state-of-the-art technological equipment is used, the choice of the ideal dye to suit the skin and hair type, and ultimately, the technique and experience of the person applying it.
In Advanced Hair Clinics we apply the most up-to-date and effective methods against hair loss. The problem of hair loss is treated in a comprehensive and personalized way for each patient's particular needs.
What should I know
In Advanced Hair Clinics, the Scalp Micropigmentation method is tailor-made to each patient's needs. Depending on the extent of hair loss and the desired effect, the non-toxic and hypoallergenic pigment is introduced by the microdermabrasion technique at an intradermal level, directly to the areas where the hair loss is visible, giving the appearance of a shaved scalp, while covering the most difficult cases of scarring.
Usually, 3-4 sessions are required to complete the treatment, depending on the particular needs of each patient, the color and extent of the area we want to cover. In summary, the steps to complete the innovative, non-invasive Scalp Micropigmentation method are:
For the most part, counseling sessions are ideally conducted with the physical presence of the person concerned. However, if a visit to one of our clinics is not possible, a consultation session via video call, email, Skype, Facetime, WhatsApp and Viber is possible. During the consultation phase, specialist doctors and nursing staff will provide you with all the necessary information, consider your needs and design a treatment plan focused on your needs.
During the first session, the scalp micropigmentation process will be designed and started in a conservative manner, always taking into account the needs and desires of the person concerned.
In most cases, the treatment is completed within 3 sessions. Extra sessions allow us to create the illusion of shade and texture, fill the area with more detail, and achieve instant natural coverage results even at advanced hair loss stages.
Although the number of modern treatments available to treat hair thinning is large, the non-invasive Scalp Micropigmentation method is becoming increasingly popular, especially for those who wish to:
- Have the look of a "freshly-shaved" head
- Thicken the hairline and / or partially or completely of bold areas of the scalp
- Have thicker Eyebrows - Eyebrow Micropigmentation
- Enhance the aesthetic effect of Hair Transplantation - Combination Therapy
- Cover the symptoms of Alopecia
- Cover large, deformed scars resulting from failed Hair Transplantation Interventions – FUT Scar Restoration
- Restore a burn or scar
- Improve an older Scalp Micropigmentation result
The Scalp Micropigmentation method also addresses to:
- People at a very early stage of hair loss
- People with a fully depleted or inadequate donor area for which Hair Transplantation is impossible
- People suffering from Androgenetic Alopecia - Male Hair Loss
- People suffering from Female Hair Loss
Results & Contraindications:
After each Scalp Micropigmentation session, the patient may develop small hematoma and irritation in the form of a small open wound, symptoms that will subside within days. As the last session ends, the wounds and the uncomfortable feeling that accompanies them gradually subsides, and the effect becomes more and more natural.
The result of the method becomes visible immediately after the last session is completed. However, over the next 3-6 months, the image of the scalp improves as the dots of the tattoo pigment decrease in size, revealing a completely realistic result. It is important to protect the area from exposure to sunlight in order to avoid the color change of the tattoo, also known as "bleaching".
No recovery time is required and thus the person immediately returns to his daily activities without realizing the application of Scalp Micropigmentation.
