Scalp micropigmentation is another form of microblading, with the exception that it is completed on the scalp to look like hair follicles. Scalp micropigmentation uses specific pigments that are MRI and X-ray safe, while matching the color to the patient natural hair color, allowing it to have a much more natural and fuller appearance.
If you are dealing with a receding hairline, thinning of the hair, or baldness, scalp micropigmentation can help you look like you have hair once more. Scalp micropigmentation is not a surgical procedure, it is a non-invasive aesthetic procedure that uses safe pigments to cover up not only bald spots, but scars on the scalp, and other concerns you may have.
Scalp micropigmentation is done by a trained and educated specialist that restores the look of hair to your scalp. This treatment is completed by replicating the hair follicles as well as the hair color by adding density to areas that need it most.
