This treatment based on techniques used in tattooing and microblading helps reduce the visibility of a receding hairline
About This Deal
- Scalp micropigmentation consists of tattooing tiny dots of ink that resemble close-shaved hair, creating an illusion of having hair in the tattooed areas
What is semi-permanent make-up?
Semi-permanent pigments are applied to the surface layer of skin, designed to define and enhance natural facial features. The pigments are implanted using microfine needles, a process which is also known as micropigmentation or cosmetic tattooing. Effects will gradually fade over time, depending on factors such as age, exposure to sun and general skin care; however, top-ups can rectify this.
What areas can be worked on?
- Small area is defined as covering a receding hairline and thinning areas - Norwood 1,2, 2a and 3
- Medium area is defined as covering a receding hairline at the front and the crown plus thinning areas - Norwood 3a, 3 Vertex 4 and 4a
- Large area is defined as covering the whole head or anything without any hair - Norwood 5, 5a, 6 and 7
What happens at sessions?
The treatments start with a full consultation to determine suitability. Allergy test is required at least 48 hours before treatment.
What about recovery?
Clients are likely to experience minor swelling of the treated area, which should fade over the following one or two days. The area will also look darker in colour immediately afterwards, with final results taking a few days to appear.
