The Process Scalp Micropigmentation
Scalp micropigmentation is a popular form of non-surgical hair loss treatment, and the process is suitable for both men and women. The best way to describe the process is by likening it to the process of a tattoo. Don’t be alarmed though, you aren’t going to be left with a beautiful mural over your scalp. Instead, a natural pigment is applied to the epidermal layer of the skin, which aims to replicate the natural appearance of hair follicles – the idea is to camouflage areas where hair loss has already begun.
You’re probably sat there freaking out about having a needle poked through your scalp repeatedly, but don’t worry as your technician will apply a numbing agent to the area. You will experience some discomfort, which varies from person to person.
