There are many forms of hair rejuvenation, and not all involve transplanting hair from one spot to another. In fact, micropigmentation is actually a form of tattooing which simulates the appearance of hair.
Similar to permanent makeup, micropigmentation offers a no-hassle aesthetic solution. Compared to other forms of tattooing, micropigmentation is less painful, because it doesn't penetrate the skin as deeply. As a result, pain levels are kept to a minimum and recovery times are shorter than traditional tattoos.
Here are three reasons why you should consider micropigmentation:
1. You keep your hair short
If you're a man who keeps his hair short all year long, micropigmentation may be a great option for you. The simulated hair looks almost indistinguishable from a close buzzcut. In fact, many athletes prefer this form of hair restoration because it means they won't have to worry about sweaty hair.
Micropigmentation may also be used to conceal scars from previous hair restoration procedures, creating a more natural look that heals quickly.
2. You prefer a clean look
We can't all rock the bedhead look, and that's OK! Many men – and their partners – prefer a smooth, clean look.
Micropigmentation doesn't just look clean, it's also incredibly easy to care for. As with men who shave their heads, men who choose simulated hair need to protect their scalps from harsh UV rays – but you won't have to worry about buying expensive shampoos and conditioners.
3. You're not ready for a hair transplant
A hair transplant is a big decision, and you may not be ready for it yet. In fact, many men who have experienced only slight hair loss choose micropigmentation to add thickness.
For many members of our Long Island community, life is currently too busy to consider a hair recovery option with a longer healing period. For these men, micropigmentation offers a chance to recapture their signature style without having to take time away from their responsibilities.
