Hair loss is a condition that affects millions of men and women in America and may start as early as the twenties or thirties. Hair restoration technology has advanced, allowing for better results with transplants – but not everyone wants to undergo a hair grafting procedure. Scalp micropigmentation could an ideal solution. Our scalp micropigmentation in Kirkland, WA, can non-surgically recreate the appearance of thicker hair, hiding areas where your hair is thinning or balding.
What is scalp micropigmentation?
Scalp micropigmentation is a procedure like getting a tattoo. We create custom ink colors to match your natural hair and integrate with your scalp. On men, dots of ink that mimic shaven hair follicles are created on the scalp to camouflage thinning or balding areas. This long-term solution blends with your existing hair to hide:
- Male pattern baldness
- Camouflage trauma scars or the scar left from strip hair restoration
- Create the appearance of thicker hair
- Create a thicker look for women with thinning hair by hiding the contrast between hair and scalp
How does it work?
The technology of scalp micropigmentation is essentially a tattoo process. The first step is an in-depth consultation where we analyze your scalp and design the restoration based on your goals. After evaluating your hair loss, and discussing what you hope to achieve, the scalp micropigmentation process can begin.
The treatment involves intricately recreating the appearance of short hair using custom-colored inks and varying thicknesses of needles. Most patients need two or three sessions, with the first session a “light touch” treatment to see how the results will appear, and follow-up sessions to create the optimal improvement. Like a tattoo, the results of scalp micropigmentation can last a lifetime, and can be enhanced over time as needed.
What are the benefits?
The benefits of scalp micropigmentation when compared to other hair restoration techniques include:
- No maintenance required
- Lifelong results
- No surgery required
- No downtime
- Immediate results
Who is a Candidate?
Anyone who wants to camouflage the appearance of thinning hair, a receding hairline, or create a more youthful look could be a good candidate. There are no restrictions related to skin type or hair color, nor do we limit this treatment to those with extreme hair loss. This procedure is very popular for women who suffer from genetic hair loss at the part, and for men with a receding hairline, thinning hair, or balding areas.
After Scalp Micropigmentation
You may experience some mild discomfort after treatment, but your scalp will rapidly heal over the following days. You can return to work the following day. It is expected that the area treated will be red for 24 to 48 hours. You can expect to be recovered within about a week, with no limits on your activities during the healing process. Our scalp micropigmentation specialists will provide detailed aftercare instructions.
