Scalp Micropigmentation by Lois
Scalp Micropigmentation is the process of pigmenting (tattooing) the scalp to simulate the look of a full head of shaved hair. Using a dotting technique with several different pigment colors, I am able to create the illusion of shaved hair. This will camouflage any area of the scalp that is balding.
Another technique used to simulate hair is featherstrokes. I have used this technique on female Alopecia clients. This process makes it appear as if there is short hair growing, helping to mask the scalp from shining through very thin hair. It doesn't make the client's own hair appear thicker, it simply camouflages the scalp from being so obvious. The most important part of both of these procedures is the design of the hairline and the shade and density match where the pigmented area meets the hairline. Typically, the complete process of tattooing the scalp takes 6 to 10 hours which is split up in 3 to 4 sessions. These sessions range between $300 and $800, bringing the total cost to $1200 and up.
Scalp mMcropigmentation can help people with many hair loss issues. It can give the youthful look of a full, shaved head of hair by simulating a front, side and/or rear hairline, thus restoring the hairline on a partial or fully bald head. Scalp micropigmentation can also camouflage the symptoms of hair loss in Alopecia as well as camouflage burns, scars, birthmarks and scarring resulting from hair transplant surgery.
