Micropigmentation is just another name for aesthetic tattooing. Although it is widely used for under and over the eye lid to mimic eyeliner, as eyebrow enhancer, cosmetic tattooing for hair loss is sought by patients for recreating lost or underdeveloped facial hair, creating the appearance of hair on a balding scalp, and also for reducing scar appearance after follicular unit transplant. Micropigmentation for hair loss irregularities addresses:

  • Donor scar site due to hair transplant surgery
  • Achieving the look of natural hair growth
  • Female hair loss of thinning hair around hairline or top of scalp

At the time of the initial consultation the cosmetic tattoo specialist will create a special concoction of custom pigmentations to determine the right shade for the specific area being treated. The specialist then permeates a series of minute mimics of hair to resemble that of a fuller, thicker and natural hair. The session usually last 60 minutes each and the larger the area the more sessions will be required to reach the desired results.
