Microdot Pigmentation

By Life Hair Restoration Clinic

The human scalp has more than 2000 hair follicles per square inch. However, this is not the case for everyone, many people suffer from balding, hair thinning or alopecia due to age, genetics, medical treatments, hormones, or other medical conditions.


While there are various types of treatments available to those suffering from hair loss, many men and women are choosing Microdot Pigmentation in favour of traditional hair loss treatments because of its permanent results.


Micodot Pigmentation Therapy before and afterPerfected over years of research and procedural testing, Microdot Pigmentation uses an artistic effect of tattooing, where tiny pigmentation dots are added between the hair follicles. The density of the microdots will produce shading, thus creating an illusion of texture and fullness.


How does Microdot Pigmentation work exactly?

The process begins by inserting a micro-droplet of pigment through the skin using a specialised tattoo instrument. Anaesthetics are applied to numb the scalp beforehand and while most patients experience mild discomfort during the procedure, it becomes less painful as the session progresses.


Depending on the amount of hair loss or baldness, the procedure of adding pigmented microdots to the scalp can take between 1 to 4 hours.  During the procedure, a tiny wound is created in the skin when each dot is applied. Over time, a scab heals over the wound and eventually falls off, taking some of the pigment with it. This gradual “fading” varies from patient to patient, but usually three Microdot Pigmentation sessions are required to see the best results.


Who else can consider Microdot Pigmentation?

There are varieties of uses for Microdot Pigmentation – it is also appropriate for burn and surgery-related hair loss, as well to cover blemishes and to blend birthmarks into the scalp.


Can women consider Microdot Pigmentation?

Yes, women can also consider this treatment. The technician will apply pigmentation by parting the hair section by section. The result will be a shaded scalp – which makes it harder to see the difference in colour between the hair and scalp, subsequently creating the illusion of thicker hair.

The most important thing to remember is that only a reputable and qualified professional should perform the Microdot Pigmentation procedure. Contact our hair loss clinic today to get in touch and find out more about Microdot Pigmentation and find out if this hair loss treatment is right for you.
