Is this the same as a tattoo?
The process itself is similar to that of a tattoo but with some key differences. The needles, machine and pigment we use are designed specifically for Scalp Micropigmentation. Traditional tattoos are placed 5 plus lawyers into the skin where as our Scalp Micropimentation procedure is placed 2 layers into the skin allowing the pigment to hold its follicle like shape.
What is the cost of the procedure?
Prices are quoted on case by case basis, however you can expect to pay between $1000-$5000 USD or £600-£3000 GBP. Prices are based on current stage of hair loss and treatment time required.
How long will the treatment sessions take?
The average Scalp Micropigmentation session is likely to last between 2-4 hours depending on treatment needs. The first 10-15 minutes of your session will be used for paperwork; the next 15-30 minutes will be used to discuss style needs, color selection and hairline positioning. The remaining time is used to perform the procedure and issue after care guidelines.
Is it painful?
No, most clients experience no pain to mild discomfort. The average client has expressed the pain level to be 1-2 out of 10.
How will I look immediately after?
You will see results immediately, however you will experience a little redness to the skin that will subside within 12-48 hours.
What is the after care?
For the first 3-4 days following your treatment sessions you will be required to keep all forms of moisture away from the treatment area, this will mean avoid showering the area and also refrain from exercise. After the 3-4 days you can go back to normal activities.
