Who Would Benefit from
Scalp Micropigmentation?

The micro scalp pigmentation does not intend to create hairlike lines, the one you would notice when microblading eyebrows. Instead, it uses tiny, layered dots in different colors to create a look of shadow on your scalp. Some people also refer to this style as pointillism, and it is done to give you a natural-looking depth and definition.

Dr. John Kahen will work to make sure that dots look like natural hair follicles and blend in seamlessly with your complexion. All those who experience one or the other forms of hair loss can opt for a scalp micropigmentation hair loss procedure. The process may be beneficial for folks with:

thin hair

How does the Scalp Micropigmentation Process Work?

Using many different needles, depths, angles, pigment colors, distribution rates, the practitioner applies the highly specialized pigments at the BHHR. In addition to this, the process of scalp micropigmentation relies on the specific area of the scalp being treated, the skin tone of the individual, and much sought-after performance. If you are looking for a highly advanced form of cosmetic pigmentation, BHHR scalp micropigmentation is the only technique. The needles used in the scalp micropigmentation do not penetrate as deeply as they do with other methods. Moreover, we use tested pigments that do not blur or fade over time. With the use of micro-fine needles in triple clusters, the desired results are given to the patients.

Book your consultation now with our scalp micropigmentation specialist. Our practitioner will prepare you for what to expect and how to prepare yourself beforehand during your consultation.

Have a look at some of the guidelines:

  • One should have a shower before each treatment. It is said so because, after four days of the treatment, you'll be able to wash or wet your scalp.
  • The treatment session will consume nearly four to five hours of yours.
  • The number of treatments required by you will depend on the portion of the scalp getting the scalp micropigmentation done. For long-term retention, three to four treatments are required, even if it is a small area as scalp micropigmentation involves layering color.
  • All your treatment sessions will be spaced for a few weeks apart.

One should refrain from swimming, using steam or sauna rooms, or taking excessively hot showers in the weeks between treatment.

For the first four days, avoid exposing your scalp to the sun. After that, you can wear a hat if you wish to. After that, you can quickly reveal the treated skin to the sun for around one hour or 45 minutes if you have fair skin, but all this on the fifth day of the treatment.

But keep this thing in mind that the less sun exposure, the more will be long-term retention.

  • Refrain from growing your hair too long. It will lead to the appearance of firmness and thinness. One should use an electric shaver instead of a manual razor.

Many clients have little to no problems after the treatment. However, some research conducted on this stated that there could be minor swelling or redness after the treatment. But this should go away within a couple of days only. It is a sign of an infection if the area gets more swollen, red, or painful. This infection can cause you a fever. In case you witness any of the symptoms, call your practitioner or artist immediately.

Most probably, the people tend to complain of redness and itching in the treated area. But as the skin on the scalp recovers, this goes away on its own. Unfortunately, the clients can experience some severe side effects also in some rare cases. But certain complications can take place after scalp micropigmentation: There can be some redness in the treated area at the time of pigment. If the patient has an allergy to the pigment, then an allergic reaction can occur. There are also chances for infection if the instruments are not properly sterilized. Consequently, the best thing would be to get it done from a trusted and reputed clinic meeting your hygiene and safety standards.

The answer is no. With time, our skin grows and sheds the outer layer. As a result, the pigmented follicles will fade. If taken proper care of, then most treatments will last between 5-6 years.

No one will ever regret it. But if it is not done well, then you will regret for sure.

The answer is no. Your hair will not grow back after the scalp micropigmentation treatment. But expect a look of short hair or tight buzz cut by the scalp micropigmentation treatment. If you want the most natural outcome, then it is highly advised to keep your hair short.

Does scalp micropigmentation damage hair follicles is the question on everyone's mind. But it does not damage your hair follicles. Instead, the procedure is done in between the existing follicles to give you depth and density.

There is no compulsion to cut your hair before the scalp micropigmentation treatment, especially when doing it on a long-haired individual. Each technician has different preferences, so you need to check with your provider about this. One needs to cut his hair only when treating a shaved head individual for full scalp coverage.

One should refrain from shaving the head in the first three weeks of receiving treatment. If you start cutting your hair again, then it will lead to scabs. As a result, one should wait for at least three days after getting the treatment.

As far as your hair follicles are concerned, then you can be at ease as scalp micropigmentation causes no harm to your hair follicles. Some people also state that it stimulates hair growth.
