Scalp Pigmentation uses an ink similar to that of a traditional body art tattooist would use. The ink or pigment is applied to the top layers of the skin which means unlike body art it will fade more overtime. How fast it takes to fade can depend on the pigment used, the technical ability of the person performing the procedure and how many sessions have been taken. The pigment is applied in dots to mimic shaved hair follicles. hence the treatment is used mainly to mimic the look of a shaved head of hair.
Even advanced hair loss can be treated. Creating a new hairline and adding the pigment over the scalp to the crown. Eventually the look of a full head of hair is made. Just shaved. Of course this means the remaining hair, especially around the back and sides of the head needs to be kept shaved also. So a natural blend between pigment and hair is maintained. If hair loss progresses it´s possible to add more pigment to maintain the look. When performed to a high standard even on close inspection the small dots of pigment resemble hair shafts cut short.
Even long hair diffused hair loss can benefit from this cosmetic hair loss cover up technique. By adding the pigment between the existing long hairs blocks the skin complexion from being as obvious.
