What is Scalp Pigmentation?

Scalp pigmentation is usually split into different sessions, although the actual time can vary depending on the extent of your hair loss, the style you require and some other factors. During the treatments, microneedles will be used to layer pigment dots on your scalp in a process that is similar to getting a tattoo. Scalp pigmentation for long hair is highly technical, specialised process performed by trained technicians, the ‘tiny dots’ of pigment will be placed in the dermal layer of skin to create the illusion of a full head of shaved hair. Before the first treatment, you will have a consultation, you’ll meet with the practitioner and before they provide the treatment they will discuss your requirements, including the shape of your hairline, its positioning and the density and shade of your pigmentation.

When each dot is applied with scalp pigmentation ink, a small wound is created, the scab will heal over the wound and it will eventually fall away, showing the implanted pigment. Your immune system will attack the pigments and cause them to shrink, this gradual fading of the dot will vary from person to person and may mean that you’ll need extra sessions to get the required pigment shade. This will all be covered in your consultation, can also go through a range of scalp pigmentation pictures and before and afters, helping you to choose the right positioning, shade and hairline for your scalp.

How does Scalp Pigmentation work?

Scalp pigmentation is a simple process and is popular with men or women that have thinning hair or are balding, they may choose to have tiny dots tattooed on the scalp. This will achieve two different goals depending on the application, in thin areas the scalp micro pigmentation can help to mask the appearance of the underlying scalp and make hair look thicker. In areas that are totally bald, scalp pigmentation can be used to resemble a ‘buzz cut’. Scalp pigmentation treatment uses needles to ‘tattoo’ pigment into the scalp, it will create the appearance of hair follicles to restore the look of a fuller head of hair. The procedures replicate your natural hair follicles while strengthening and adding density to thinning areas.

Frequently Asked Questions About Scalp Pigmentation

How much does Scalp Pigmentation Cost?
The cost of scalp pigmentation will vary from one client to another, in the majority of cases it will be impossible to determine your treatment without a consultation with one of our scalp pigmentation experts. At FUE Clinics when it comes to scalp pigmentation and scalp pigmentation for long hair, we can accurately determine the cost of the treatment once we have considered the issue and the type of pigmentation you require. Our consultation process will involve a thorough examination of your scalp, hair and head, this will allow us to assess the extent of the problem and how we can help you, next we’ll provide you with the scalp pigmentation cost.
What are the Side Effects of Scalp Pigmentation?
Scalp pigmentation comes with a few, minimal side effects, this includes your scalp being a little red after each application. The dots will also be darker and larger as your skin starts to heal, but then the tiny scabs that form over each dot will heal and fall off, taking some pigmentation and pigment with them.
What are Common Scalp Pigmentation Problems?
While scalp pigmentation is known for being an effective treatment, there are some ‘cons’ to consider. It’s a permanent procedure so it can be seen as a disadvantage to men, the hair pattern will always stay the same, so changing it will require more treatments or a laser removal process. Prolonged exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can also increase the rate of fading, this will require the patient to visit the clinic again for touch ups. Another thing to consider is that it's more important that men undergoing the treatment keep their hair very short in order to take full advantage of the treatment.
How Long Should I Expect the Scalp Micro Pigmentation Results to Last for?
The scalp micro pigmentation treatments that we provide here at FUE Clinics we typically take between 2 to 4 hours to complete per session, however, this will all depend on your degree of hair loss, most clients can expect between 2 to 4 sessions to complete their treatment. This will depend on the extent of your hair loss or scarring, we can spread your sessions by 10 to 20 days.
Does Scalp Pigmentation Hurt?
Most people describe the process as uncomfortable although it’s not necessarily painful, the sensation is not dissimilar to that experienced whilst having a tattoo, the discomfort is more of a pulse than a constant throbbing feel. It’s nowhere near as painful as having a full hair transplant. When it comes to pain management we recommend taking painkillers such as codeine, paracetamol and ibuprofen, as they may help.
Is Scalp Pigmentation Treatment Permanent?
Scalp pigmentation is a form of permanent cosmetics or permanent makeup, often referred to as a cosmetic hair or scalp tattoo, the treatment is permanent and will last from 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. This is a cosmetic solution that will not wash off but can be tweaked as time goes on, we always recommend contacting your practitioner to go through your treatment options.
Are there any Side Effects of Scalp Micro Pigmentation?
As with any permanent cosmetic procedure, it’s important to understand the full implications of undergoing treatments, there are a few scalp micropigmentation side effects to consider. These side effects include swollen lymph nodes, redness, an itchy scalp, dots too large, rapid mid fading and dots turning blue. There’s no need to worry about any of these side effects, they are all normal when it comes to micro-pigmentation treatments, if you are worried though, we recommend getting in touch with your surgeon who will be able to put you at ease.
What’s Involved in the Scalp Pigmentation Process?
SMP treatments can be completed in 6-10 hours and split over different sessions, the actual time required can vary considerably and will depend on the style of pigmentation that you need. The extent of the balding, size of your head, pigment colour and fade will also be considered. Before the treatment begins it’s important that the surgeon understands your requirements, this will include hairline, shape and position, as well as density and shade. Pigment dots will be layered over several sessions to gradually increase the density and darkness until the right blend is achieved. After each session, the patient will need to keep their head dry and refrain from washing or shaving it for around five days, a week later another session can be applied ensuring that the pigments from the previous session have settled. After each session has healed, you’ll notice that the dots have become softer, lighter and distinct and any redness or bruising subsides.
How Does Scalp Pigmentation Work?
Scalp pigmentation is sometimes referred to as SMP for short, is the process of pigmenting the scalp to make it look like you have a real head of shaved hair. It’s a highly skilled process and should only be carried out by cosmetic pigmentation specialists as the technique and equipment used is quite specific. Ultimately shaved hair looks like thousands of small dots on the scalp and our process aims to replicate this using pigments that are effectively tattooed into the skin. When undergoing scalp pigmentation from a specialist like the FUE Clinics team, the results can look extremely realistic, the extent to which real hair dots can be replicated is very real looking, it’s easy to understand how scalp pigmentation is a popular option.
What is the Price of Scalp Pigmentation?
The average cost of scalp pigmentation will vary and this will depend on a number of factors, from the provider to the type of scalp pigmentation that you require. The cost of the treatment should not be the determining factor when considering ana scalp pigmentation treatment, as a hair loss sufferer you’ll always have the goal of achieving the desired result and it will be the expertise and experience of the surgeon that will help you to achieve this.
