Designing your new hairline is something we take time over during your first treatment session. This can take up to 30 minutes to your first treatment session for your hairline design. We take your input on your preferred hairline whether it be a defined hairline, natural receded look, or a subtle, soft hairline, and our practitioner will advise you along the way. We begin by drawing your new hairline using a wax pencil and make any adjustments as necessary. Only once you are happy with your new hairline design do we start the Scalp Micropigmentation treatment. Although you will have a new hairline in place from your first treatment, it will be a subtle result as we build the density of your treatment over your following treatment sessions. This allows for changes to your hairline if requested on your next session.
Once grey hairs are shaved down they are hard to notice. We then match the pigment to your stubble, If your hair was to turn grey later on in life, this would have no affect on your look after having Scalp Micropigmentation. Our pigments are specially formulated to settle into the scalp over time. This means that over the years, your SMP treatment will slowly become a lighter shade, whereas others may require a touch up to freshen or darken their SMP treatment, if your hair was to turn grey, you may never require a touch up session as you would simply allow the pigments to lighten naturally as your hair turns grey.
No. Scalp micropigmentation can be referred to as a medical tattoo or hair tattoo but the treatment is performed using a completely different technique to regular tattoos. We do not go as deep into the skin as a normal tattoo. The treatment is performed by our highly skilled SMP trained practitioner using specialist pigments created for the scalp only, not tattoo ink. The needles and equipment we use are also different to those used for regular tattoos.
This Varies from client to client. We can use Scalp Micropigmentation to create the look of a full, shaved head of hair and can also use the treatment to add density to thinning hair.
For example, a client suffering from severe pattern baldness or alopecia would usually be required to shave their hair to a short length to match the SMP treatment, whereas a client who is suffering from thinning hair but still has a majority coverage may be able to keep their hair at a longer length, This is usually the case for our female, thinning hair males and post hair transplant clients.
Your practitioner will discuss this with you in more detail during your consultation.
