How Does Scalp Micro-Pigmentation Work?
Our scalp Micro-pigmentation specialist applies pigments using a multitude of different needle sizes, penetration depths, angles, pigment colours and distribution rates depending on the specific area of the scalp being treated at the time, the skin tone of the individual and the desired final appearance. This technique is a highly advanced form of cosmetic pigmentation. The needles used do not penetrate as deeply as they do with some other techniques, and we use tested pigments that do not blur or fade overtime. We use micro-fine needles in triple clusters to achieve the guaranteed consistency of results that our technique demands.

Whether you have long hair, short hair, thinning hair or a visible scalp, Scalp Micro-pigmentation can provide the appearance of a thicker, fuller head of hair.
This treatment isn't just for men it i suitable for women with diffused thinning, often non-candidates for hair transplantation. Scalp Micro-pigmentation provides the appearance of a fuller head of hair. Scalp Micro-pigmentation is great for hiding patches where the scalp is visible through your hair.
Who Is A Candidate For Scalp Micro-Pigmentation?
Men and women wanting the appearance of added hair density
People with shaved heads that desire hairline definition
Those who want to camouflage burns, scars or birthmarks
How does the process work?
A quick and relatively pain-free procedure, scalp micro-pigmentation is typically applied to the scalp over 3 sessions. Each session takes around 3 hours. (A space of 1-4 weeks depending on the client) needs to be allowed between each session to enable the scalp to rest and heal.
After each treatment session, thousands of tiny scabs will form as part of the healing process. This is why fresh treatments can often look 'dotty'. After a few days the scabs fall off naturally, leaving behind smaller and natural-looking deposits. Over 3 sessions these deposits are 'layered' to provide a perfect replication of real hair, and a seamless blend from your treated area to your remaining natural hair.
Scalp micro pigmentation produces an illusion so real, that no-one ever needs to know you've had the procedure unless you choose to tell them. Many of our clients keep their treatment a secret, even from their partners and parents! The treatment is so effective, you really do have the option to tell no-one if that's what you choose to do.
The majority of ‘standard’ clients, those without scars or symptoms of alopecia or other skin conditions, will require 2-4 sessions to complete their treatment. Some clients believe their treatment is complete after 2 sessions, but return a short while later to correct minor fading here and there. Most clients need 3 sessions and around 20% of clients will require a fourth session.
Why do some people need a lot of sessions?
There are those who require 5 or more sessions to complete their treatment. Some have as many as 6 or 7 sessions before their process is considered complete. These cases are rare, however these are the primary causes:
The client has a particularly active immune response
Scar tissue absorbs and disperses the pigment more readily than expected
The client requests a number of adjustments during the process
In an ideal world, no client should need more than 4 sessions to complete their pigmentation. However taking into account all of the variables within the process, it is inevitable that some will.
