Learn More About Scalp Micropigmentation
Male pattern baldness affects the majority of men in the United States. In fact, 85% of men aged 50 and older have some sort of hair loss. This might include a receding hairline, crown balding, or hair loss around the perimeter of the head. Whatever the case for you, scalp pigmentation may be the answer. At Aesthetic Hair Restoration, we’re dedicated to providing premier solutions such as these to Houston, TX residents.
Understanding the Micropigmentation Procedure
Scalp micropigmentation isn’t hair restoration. Rather, this procedure involves shading the scalp to make the hair appear fuller. Micropigmentation is also a good idea for men who want their heads to appear shaved. Generally speaking, scalp micropigmentation is a simple procedure that only takes a few sessions. Depending on your circumstances, you may need two or three sessions. One session will typically follow the following process:
- Application of lighter shades to the scalp
- Formation of scabs where the pigment was applied
- Scabs fall away, leaving the permanent pigment behind
- Application of darker shades at a second session
- Schedule touch-up sessions as needed
A Quick Recovery With Few Side Effects
Scalp micropigmentation is an excellent choice for many men because it involves no reported side effects. After your procedure, you can get right back to your daily activities. There is no recovery period, but you will need to avoid swimming, shaving your head, sweating, and exposing your head to sunlight. Many patients experience some redness at first, but the irritation should subside after 48 hours. Our team will be sure to give you detailed instructions on how to care for your scalp in the weeks following the procedure.
