1What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp micropigmentation is a hair follicle replication process that helps people suffering from different types of hair loss. We use specially formulated pigments and an artistic application to replicate hair follicles in your scalp. This treatment is non-invasive and requires no surgery. The value compared to other alternatives like hair transplants and medications is definitely cost-effective.
2How long does the procedure take?
3-5 hours for the first session and usually only 2-3 hours the second and/or third sessions. We offer a 1-year guarantee on touch-ups as far as hairline alteration or fading.
3Does it hurt?
The pain level most clients tell us is 2 out of 10. Men and women who have scarring from hair transplants, they tend to have a little more discomfort due to sensitivity. But we do use our own topical numbing cream if the client so desires.
4How long does it last?
The answer to this questions lies in the individual makeup of the person. The sun will have a very big impact on the life of the procedure and your individual dermal collagen micro structure as well. Your genetic code has a lot to do with this as well, such as oils in your tissues and the chemical bonds in your skin tissues. This will break down these bonds, long-term sunlight radiation breaks down ink and the ink will dissolve into the skin.
This could be the difference between your procedure lasting 10 years and due to the sun, it only lasting 2 years. It is also the rejuvenation of your skin, your cycle of scabbing, how long it takes your tissues to heal themselves and much more. You have to understand that your body sees ink as a foreign object and naturally wants to reject it. This is why we require 2-3 procedures to ensure full coverage due to different variables.
5What is the cost?
We have a range of prices that start at $1,200 for a scar and up to $5,500 for an individual who has Alopecia with no hair at all. Most of our clients have a horseshoe pattern and need a hairline, top, sides, and blending. These jobs usually range between $2,500-$4,000.00 and are based on the specific needs of the client.
6How long does it take the scalp to heal after the procedure?
We provide a post care protocols that should be followed for the first week and after that, all we ask is that you keep your scalp protect with a high SPF & a moisturizer.
7Is this a tattoo?
Although this is a form of tattooing this is not your average run of the mill tattoo. We have specifically created our system around realistic results so unless you tell those around you, your outcome will be undetectable.
