Scalp MicroPigmentation Expectations & After Care

October 28, 2019

 

 

 

COMMON QUESTIONS

 

Do you charge for a consultation?

No, we offer free consultations for anyone looking to learn about how scalp micro pigmentation can help their hair loss. You may text us pictures of your area of concern whether it is the crown, back, or hair line, etc. Christopher will be able to schedule you for either an in-office or video consultation.

 

How much does Scalp Micro pigmentation cost?

Our pricing is based on the level of hair loss, which is different for each client.  Typically, the price ranges between $1,500 to-$4,000 with the average standard procedure costing around $3000. We recommend setting up a free consultation so we can evaluate your case and provide a personalized price quote based on your hair loss needs.

 

Is scalp micro pigmentation detectable?

Scalp micro pigmentation has become such an effective hair loss solution because of its consistently natural and undetectable results and on the ability to seamlessly replicate each individual hair follicle to create a perfect match for each client.

 

How many treatments should I expect?

Scalp micro pigmentation should never be considered a one treatment process. Most clients can expect between 2 to 4 sessions to complete their treatment depending on the extent of hair loss or scarring. These treatments are usually spaced about 10-to 20 days apart.

 

How long does scalp micro pigmentation take?

The Scalp Micro pigmentation treatment typically takes 2 to-4 hours per session depending on your degree of hair loss. Most clients can expect between 2 to-4 sessions to complete their treatment depending on the extent of hair loss or scarring. These treatments are usually spaced about 10 to-20 days apart.

 

How long do the results last?

After completion of your treatment (2-to 4 sessions) a client should expect the strength of the color to last for many years. Over a longer term, a client will very gradually begin to notice slight lightening (not discolor) of the treatment. When this occurs they can undergo a brief “touch up” session to restore any fading and secure many more years of their style.

 

Do I need to take time off work?

Scalp micro pigmentation is non-invasive and requires no down time. In most cases, you will not need to take any extended time away from work, school, or other functions. After treatment it is common to notice slight redness on the

scalp for 1 to 2 days post session. This redness subsides quickly and most clients return to work the next day. Clients are also allowed to wear hats or head wear should they feel the need.

 

Is Scalp Micro pigmentation permanent?

Scalp Micro pigmentation is a form of permanent cosmetics or permanent makeup. Often referred to as a cosmetic hair or scalp tattoo, this treatment typically lasts 4 to-6 years. After that time, a client may experience some slight fading, to which they can come back in for a quick touch up.

 

Will it change color like tattoos?

No. Scalp micro pigmentation is a form of permanent cosmetics, but unlike tattoo ink, the pigment is designed to fall within the same color spectrum of natural hair. The pigment contains no additional colorants or additives and will only lighten, not discolor over an extended time. Scalp micro pigmentation also utilizes different equipment than traditional

tattooing, ensuring the needle and machine are designed specifically for micro pigmentation of the scalp.

 

If I am lighter or darker skin tone will this treatment still look good?

Yes! We are able to match the shade of our pigment to a wide range of skin tones. Whether you are Caucasian, African-American, Hispanic, Asian, or Pacific Islander and much more...scalp micro pigmentation can work for you.

 

Does the scalp micro pigmentation procedure hurt?

For most clients, the pain is minimal and it's consistently less painful than traditional tattoos. After your session, you won't experience any further discomfort.

 

What equipment is used for a Scalp Micro pigmentation procedure?

The equipment used for a scalp treatment is considered micro pigmentation or “permanent cosmetic” equipment. There are many different brands and designs and equipment includes a digital power source, a hand-piece, and a disposable

micro needles for the insertion of pigment. Most technicians of Scalp Micro pigmentation use different equipment than standard tattoo artists to ensure the deposits are delicately placed at the appropriate depth in the skin.

 

Can I still use Propecia and/or Rogaine after my treatment?

Clients can continue using Propecia during and after their scalp pigmentation procedure. Rogaine (topical minoxidil) should be suspended during the course of treatment and for 30 days post your final session. This is to ensure the proper

healing and settling of pigment without interference of the chemicals found in Rogaine foam.

 

 

 

AFTER CARE

 

  • Immediately after treatment, your scalp will need time to heal. Just like any other medical procedure, you need to take it easy by not interfering with your body’s recovery process.

  • The scalp will form tiny micro scabs where the needle pierced the skin. Under no circumstances should you touch, pick at, or disturb your scalp while your body mends these small wounds.

  • You must wait three days before washing or touching the scalp after a treatment.

  • Prevent your body from sweating by resting during this time. Do not exercise, sit in the sun, or do any other activity that may cause you to sweat.

  • By the fourth day, you can use water to rinse your scalp. Do not use any shampoo or other soaps to clean the area.

  • After seven days, you can clean the treated area with your normal routine.

  • During the first 30 days, it is critical that you avoid exposure to UV rays, intense sweating, or any damage to the scalp while your micro pigmentation sets.
