Creating the Look of a Full Head of Hair
Do you lack an adequate amount of hair to cover a bald spot on your scalp, or desire to enhance the shape of your eyebrows? If so, the experts at Eternal Hair and Esthetics offer scalp micropigmentation to improve the aesthetic appearance of your scalp, by creating the appearance of a full head of hair on men. To learn more about how micropigmentation can help you, call the office in Totowa, New Jersey, or schedule your consultation online.
What’s Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp micropigmentation is a virtually painless and non-surgical treatment using micro-needles to deposit pigment into your scalp, creating the appearance of a full head of hair or a short buzz cut that looks natural and is undetectable. Additionally, if you have scarring on your head, micropigmentation can cover it up.
What Can I Expect During the Micropigmentation Treatment?
During your treatment, a knowledgeable Eternal Hair and Esthetics team member uses a tiny needle to create actual follicles that look the same as hair. The staff has years of experience in making sure the color of the pigment precisely matches your individual hair color. The needle used makes the dot of a small pin allowing for an exact replica of your natural hair follicle.
Each session tends to take a little less time, with the first one lasting three to four hours, while the second and third last between one and three hours, depending on the work needing to be done. To achieve the best results, you can expect to have two to four sessions, spaced roughly 15 days apart to complete your micropigmentation and cover up the bald spots.
What Should I Expect After the Micropigmentation Treatment?
After your treatment sessions, there isn’t any need to take extended time away from work or other functions, but be aware your scalp will probably be slightly red. Although this redness subsides quickly, it’s important you wear a hat or headwear to protect your head.
Your micropigmentation tends to last between four and six years. Afterwards, you’ll need to come back in for a quick touch up session to restore any potential fading.
What’s the Difference Between Micropigmentation & Tattooing?
Micropigmentation is different than tattoos because it utilizes different equipment specifically designed for micropigmentation, so the needles are three quarters smaller than a tattooing needle. With micropigmentation, the needles are embedded into the dermis so the pigment is unlikely to spread.
