What is micropigmentation? By scientific definition, it is the process of tattooing the scalp to give the appearance of a short, buzzed hairstyle. Basically, micropigmentation is a way to freedom for some people suffering from hair loss. If you are experiencing the loss or thinning of your hair and are interested in learning more about this procedure, read on for some interesting facts about micropigmentation.
1. It is a permanent procedure.
Just like regular tattoos, scalp micropigmentation is permanent. This means that your scalp will have the appearance of short hair for life. Typically, this procedure requires a touch up roughly every 20 years but fading is slow. You are free to wash your scalp, swim and live the life you want without worry of reversing your treatment.
2. There is no scarring.
Because micopimentation does not require you to go "under the knife," you don't have to worry about scars. In this method, ink is simply inserted under the skin of the scalp to give the appearance of short hair. This also means that there is little to no recovery time required. You can have the procedure and return to life as normal very quickly.
3. It is less painful than a regular tattoo.
Most professionals agree that scalp micropigmentation is a relatively pain-free method of hair restoration. The ink used in this procedure is inserted shallower than a traditional tattoo, and for most individuals, that means it is less painful than getting a regular tattoo.
