In simple terms, yes, scalp micro-pigmentation most definitely achieves natural looking hair. It is ideal for both those who are experiencing hair thinning and complete hair loss. However, before making your decision on whether the treatment is the most effective route for you, there are a number of considerations that you must keep in mind. Spending time researching into the types of scalp-micro pigmentation will guarantee that your results will be as discrete and natural as possible.
How Does Scalp Micro-Pigmentation Achieve Natural Looking Hair?
Before delving too deep into the treatment, it is important to highlight that scalp micro-pigmentation does not create hair or encourage regrowth. The procedure, instead, creates the appearance of hair through strategically placing ink on the treatment area to create a shadow. The area can be as small or large as you require. Some clients opt for merely filling in an area which is experiencing thinning, while others treat the entire scalp.
Here at Bianco Treatments & Academy, we have had years of experience specialising in scalp micro-pigmentation in Milton Keynes. We utilise an innovative hand-held, pen-like device to apply ink to the skin in tiny, layered dots. The colour of the ink is perfectly colour-matched to fit with both your natural hair shade and skin tone, to ensure that results remain natural. Our scalp micro-pigmentation technician will place the ink in your follicles, ensuring that the colour follows your natural hair growth pattern. The tip of the pen can also be altered in size to fit with your hair density. Together, these techniques create the illusion of depth and definition, similar to the appearance of a ‘stubble’ of hair.
When considering scalp micro-pigmentation, it is vital to keep in mind that the procedure will slightly alter based on your hair type, coarseness, colour and skin tone. This will determine how many sessions you require, along with the method of application that your technician uses. Below is an overview of what to expect for both dark and fair hair in order to achieve natural results.
Scalp Micro-Pigmentation For Dark Hair
Due to the nature of the follicles, it is often easier to achieve natural results on those with darker hair. This is because, along with darker hair, often comes increased thickness and a coarse texture. The combination of dark, thick and coarse hair makes the follicules larger meaning that when ink is applied to the skin, the ‘dots’ can be more prominent. The technician is able to use deeper ink shades and a larger pen from the initial session, meaning that results will be visible quicker. Further appointments will be more revolved around topping up the colour and refining the shape, rather than layering ink for a more realistic appearance.
If you have darker hair and are considering scalp micro-pigmentation, bear in mind that your hairline will have to be a little more defined rather than faded into the scalp. Over time, the ink will naturally fade, so to you ensure that your results remain visible, a more defined hairline is vital.
Scalp Micro-Pigmentation For Fair Hair
Many assume that those with light, fair hair are unable to book in for scalp-micro pigmentation, but this is most definitely not the case. Thanks to the constant evolution of technology and equipment capabilities, individuals with a lighter tone are now able to achieve just as natural results. There are currently over 60 different variations in ink shades, which means that your technician will colour match both your hair and skin tone to guarantee seamless results.
When beginning sessions, your technician will start with a lighter shade than your hair to create a foundation, which they will then build up over a period of appointments. You want to avoid going straight in with a darker shade, even if this is what you would like, to prevent results from looking unnatural. They will then carefully add tiny “dots” of ink to your follicles to match your natural hair growth pattern. Some of the most undetectable scalp micro-pigmentation results are, in fact, on those with fair hair as the process must be completed considerably more delicately.
If you decide that you would like your scalp micro-pigmentation ink to the slightly darker than your natural shade, it is imperative to keep in mind that you need to stay clean-shaven. If the ink is applied to the scalp in one colour, then, for example, your beard grows in a different shade, then this will cause a clash and appear unnatural.
Unlike those with darker hair, a faded hairline is required for individuals with a lighter tone. This will allow the ink to blend seamlessly into your appearance, ensuring that your treatment is as discrete as possible.
