What Is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Could It Be An Easy Solution to My Hair Loss?

View of San Jose man's thinning hair from topScalp Micropigmentation is a non-surgical men’s hair loss treatment. It is especially effective for men with thinning hair who want to give the appearance of thicker hair coverage.  While less invasive than a hair transplant, some risk is involved.

The Process
The micropigmentation process is similar to receiving a tattoo. Ink or pigment is injected into the scalp in tiny dots to give the appearance of hair follicles or stubble. The use of ultra-thin needles helps to create this illusion. This treatment is best for men with thinning hair who like to wear it short. Micropigmentation can also reduce scar visibility from prior hair transplant surgeries.
With micropigmentation:

  • Pigments are applied to the outer layer of this skin only.
  • Only natural pigments are used, so no heavy metals are injected into the scalp.
  • The pigments may fade and even disappear over time.

Scalp Micropigmentation is a good bald treatment option for men in San Francisco area, but there are a few potential risks.

  • The process can inhibit future hair growth.
  • There is some pain associated with the procedure.
  • A small portion of men who receive this treatment experiences an allergic reaction to the pigments.
  • The pigments may move or fade over time.
