Scalp micropigmentation has been gaining a lot of traction. Individuals who deal with hair loss and hair thinning trust it for its great results and minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t pose any serious health risks.

You no longer have to waste money on hair tattoos, because we’re here to save the day with much a much more reliable alternative. And if you’re worried about how long it lasts, this piece will allay your fears!

How Long Does the Pigmentation Last

Much like micro-blading, scalp micropigmentation creates a denser, fuller look by pigmenting the epidermis.

If you’ve been saving up for this treatment for a long time and want the results to last a long time, make sure to avoid the following conditions:

Minimize exposure to the sun

This is by far the biggest reason why your full head of hair might start looking like it’s fading sooner than expected. UV rays have a bleaching effect on the pigments used during the scalp treatment. This is why it’s best to avoid harsh sunlight or cover your head.

Immune System

Every time a foreign body—such as a needle—penetrates the epidermis, the immune system is alerted. It then dispatches white blood cells to the site of the penetration to prevent the spread of disease.

This prevents infections, but it also attacks the pigment. If your body doesn’t receive it well, the results may fade sooner than usual.

Frequency of Touch-Ups

Much like any other cosmetic treatment, you need to maintain the look by frequenting our clinic for touch-ups.

Needless to say, the sooner you get the treatment refreshed, the better. You have a higher chance of retaining the look for longer this way!

Is Scalp Micropigmentation the Same as a Hair Tattoo

While the uninitiated like to refer to this treatment as a hair tattoo, it’s not. Scalp micropigmentation is a cosmetic treatment that’s performed by experienced professionals. The results you get after the procedure look much more natural than a tattoo, and are healthier too.

Some major ways in which the two procedures differ is that:

  • Scalp micropigmentation uses finer needles
  • The experts at DE-SMP customize the treatment for each client by matching the pigment and technique to individual clients

On average, a scalp needs approximately 2,000 microdots per square inch, but we might alter the count for each person. Moreover, our experts will also build texture in proceeding sessions to create the illusion of denser hair.

Our scalp micropigmentation services will give your scalp a fuller, denser look!

With the illusion of more hair follicles covering every inch of your scalp, you no longer have to cover your bald spots with beanies and bands!
