Scalp micro pigmentation (or dermopigmentation) is an aesthetic technique inspired by tattoing, to give an optical effect of capillary mass.
In addition to a hair transplant, to cover a small zone of alopecia, to cover a baldness by giving a "shaved look" if the donor area is insufficient for a transplant, to camouflage a scar....
It can also be used to give an illusion of eyebrow density.
- Men, women, all ages, especially for patients too young for a hair transplant
- All skin types, all skin and hair colors
- Temporary alopecia (effluvium, alopecia areata) : transitory solution until natural regrowth.
- Permanent alopecia (androgenetic, cicatricial) : in addition to a hair transplantation when the donor area is limited, or for patients who are not suitable for transplantation (insufficient donor area, diffuse alopecia), or to hide a scar.
- Local application of an anesthetic cream one hour before the procedure
- Hypoallergenic medical pigments, injected into the 2nd dermal skin layer, which do not cause side effects
- Use of a three-needle cartridge to treat a surface, of one needle to draw the hairs
- Two to three sessions of several hours each, with at least one week between sessions, depending on each patient
- Permanent (8 to 15 years) or temporary ink (to test a look over a year or 18 months, for example)
- Creating the optical illusion of greater hair density (thinning hair and eyebrows), improving the visual effect of a hair transplant, reducing the color contrast between the skin and the hair
- On areas of baldness, creating a hairline, or creating a "shaved look effect" on medium and large areas of baldness
- Camouflage scars
- Long-lasting alternative to capillary systems and to transplants, very minimally invasive technique.
- Easy to remove with laser because shallower than a tattoo
- Does not replace a hair transplant
- Requires quality inks (avoid low cost), and asepsis of the instruments and pigments
- In some cases, need to renew or retouch after a few years.
COST (INDICATIVE) : 600 to 3000 €, depending on the size of the area to be treated, and on the desired density.
