A novel remedy for baldness, ‘scalp micropigmentation’ is essentially the process of having your scalp tattooed with tiny dots that resemble the appearance of stubble, giving you the appearance of a ‘short-cut’ hairstyle. It’s touted as an ‘immediate solution to hair loss’ and there’s no invasive surgery, no scarring and no down time.
While there is hope for men suffering hair loss (PRP and FUE hair transplant) there’s little in the way of solutions for men who are totally bald.
Scalp micropigmentation at least gives you the appearance of some hair and an approximation of a hairline – even if it’s just a stubbly one. It can also be used to camouflage transplant scars or to shade small areas where hair is thinning to make hair appear denser too.
Scalp pigmentation doesn’t penetrate the skin as deeply as normal tattooing, and the colour can be matched to your previous hair colour and skin tone. Unlike tattoo ink, its natural and also retains its colour – so you’re not going to start off with black dots and end up a redhead ten years later.
The practitioner will agree a suitable hairline with you, based on your previous one and face shape. Then, they will add hundreds of tiny dots over your scalp. A sitting typically lasts around three hours, and if the whole head is being treated a few may be required.
The treatment is permanent, but it can be adjusted (and in some cases reversed). And don’t worry about going grey – if the rest of your hair does, the treatment can be touched up to match.
It hurts less than having a regular tattoo, Anaesthetics are available to numb the scalp, although the majority of men grit their teeth and manage without.
Prices vary depending on the practitioner and how much of the scalp needs to be treated, but you’re looking at 50000-1. 5 Lakh.
