If you have noticed a change in people’s hairlines lately then we want to clue you in on a little secret; it’s not actually their hair. It’s a really good semi-permanent solution that we have training for at Pretty Woman School called “Scalp Micropigmentation”. Yes, it’s true. Some of your friends, family members, and favorite celebrities have decided that they are not going to allow the outside world to see how stress, age or medical conditions have thinned out their hair. It looks real, makes them feel amazing and it’s a confidence builder knowing that people are no longer eyeing their imperfections. Granted imperfections will always exist but let’s talk about Scalp Micropigmentation a little more so it is worth of looking into.
Scalp Micropigmentation is a form of permanent makeup similar to a scalp tattoo but the technique is more detailed due to the needles. The micro-needles deposit pigment into the scalp in between the hair follicles to create a shading effect. The tiny faux follicles resemble your actual hair follicles. These tiny faux hair follicles are actually layered dots using a famous painting technique called pointillism. Pointillism for this type of cosmetic procedure will consist of different color tones similar to hair color that are tattooed to replicate the look of a shadow on your scalp. This shadow will give the illusion of fuller, thicker hair that has been restored. Unlike a hair transplant procedure, it does not involve shaving your head, nor removing a patch of hair removed to only insert into another part of the hair all to wait approximately 3 months to see if the hair has grown out of your scalp. Instead client will arrive at your appointment with freshly washed hair and scalp, sit in the chair for a few hours and not return until years later unless slight touch up is needed.
Candidates that are perfect for Scalp Micropigmentation are those who suffer from natural hair loss due to age, alopecia from immune system abnormalities, thinning hair from life changing moments such as medications and/or baldness due to genetics. Other individuals who want this procedure but should not get it are people with: scalp acne, skin sensitivity such as psoriasis or eczema, and are prone to keloids. Those who have all of the above should avoid this treatment especially during a flare up or break out. The needles can cause further irritation and increased amount of pain despite the topical numbing cream. However, if this is a cosmetic procedure that you really want to try despite having skin issues, simply call to book a consultation.
Permanent makeup has advanced beyond measure within the past decade. Within 10 years, the amount of non-invasive permanent makeup treatments have evolved from eyeliner, increasing the natural lip line to beyond perfect eyebrows and now reviving a hair growth pattern that gave up on you. Scalp Micropigmentation can build the confidence of your male clientele and so worth the investment. Don’t hesitate to sign up for the upcoming scalp micropigmentation class at Pretty Woman School.
