42% of the men from the age of 30 – 49 are either balding or experiencing the beginning of hair loss. These only increases with age and the receding hairlines are more and more conspicuous.
It’s true that there are many methods of treating the hair loss - from medications to transplants. The increasingly popular solution these days is – scalp micropigmentation. This is also known as hair tattoos!
In this process, micro-needles are used to tattoo the pigment into the scalp. This creates the appearance of tiny hair follicles and creates an illusion of a fuller head of hair. It adds density to the thinning areas.
Each dot that is applied creates a tiny wound. A scab is developed when the wound is healing and eventually falls away.
Sometimes however, the immune system attacks the pigments causing them to shrink. This gradual fading of the dots varies from person to person and sometimes it takes more than a few sessions to get the required shade of color.
The first session typically lasts for more than four to five hours. Additional sessions may be required to achieve the desired darkness of the pigment.
After - effects?
While most of the patients experience mild discomfort during the procedure, it becomes more tolerable as the session progresses. Some of the areas of the scalp have more denser nerve endings than others, but majority of patients focus on the benefits of the treatment rather than any discomfort they may experience.
Is it hurtful?
Scalp micro pigmentation is definitely less hurtful than regular tattoos. It is much less hurtful than hair transplant too. There are anesthetics available to numb the scalp. Some people however prefer to go through with the procedure without any.
What about recovery?
There is no recovery period following scalp micro pigmentation. Slight redness on the skin due to the tattooing may last for 24-48 hours. You can even return to work – next day. Typical time between the treatments is seven days.
There are rarely any side effects observed. Your scalp will look red and with each application the dots look darker. The tiny scabs fall as th wounds heal and you will be good to go and looking great in no time!
