Micro Scalp Pigmentation (MSP) has turned the world of hair loss on its head (excuse the pun). Scalp pigmentation is arguably the most life-changing, non-surgical solution to hair loss for men today. MSP offers an alternative to male pattern balding and sets men free from pills, concealers, hair systems, and hair transplants. MSP can provide immediate and compelling results and is very popular with men because the shaved look is widely considered attractive. At the same time, micro Scalp Pigmentation assures low-maintenance and a permanent answer to balding, though the application of sunscreen is typically recommended to protect the colour for a longer period of time.
MSP must be applied by a specialist in micro Scalp Pigmentation. In some ways, the technique resembles a marriage between cosmetic and artistic tattooing; only with MSP the needles do not pierce the skin as deeply. This solution is much more sophisticated than regular tattooing and safer since the pigments are pre-tested for safety. The practitioner applies the pigment using different sized needles, varying depths of penetration, diverse angles of approach, assorted colours, and varied distribution on the scalp. Matching pigment colour with the skin tone of the customer as well as creating the illusion of a hair line, all work together to complete the look. The use of anasthetic cream is recommended as sessions can last from a couple of hours up to 8 hour sessions for those whith more significant hair loss.
For those who don’t like the shaved hair style but still want to benefit from this treatment, more recently it has been used successfully to enhance the overall thickness by lowering the contrast between the hair and skin colour, creating the illusion of a fuller head of hair very much like a permanent concealer.
As this is a semi-permanent procedure, it is very important not to get carried away with the hair line (though it can be reversed with removal treatment). If you’re considering this treatment options, make sure to be diligent and treat it with care.
Micro Scalp Pigmentation can be used to “cure” bad hair transplants: both to cover transplant scars as well as adding the look of density to the top of the head, thus allowing patients to wear a shorter hair style with confidence. Another benefit of the treatment is that it can be used on AA (Alopecia Areata) patients, as well as those experiencing temporary hair loss. It also gives an immediate effect.
