Scalp micropigmentation is a relatively new technique at the Neograft Hair Clinic in Chandigarh, and it is gaining popularity.
Some of the indications for scalp micro pigmentation include hair loss, thinning, bald spots, and overall diffuse low hair density. Scalp micro pigmentation is a more cost-effective alternative to hair transplantation in cases of hair loss, hair thinning, bald spots, and diffuse low hair density. It is often impossible to cover the entire bald area with the hair roots that are accessible in the donor location because of the limited number of available hair roots. Not commonly, but occasionally, a bald head or a shaved head appearance may be preferred by the customer. Scalp micropigmentation has an important function to play in all of the situations listed above.
What is scalp micropigmentation and how does it work?
The process of scalp micro pigmentation is another nonsurgical cosmetic surgery that is performed in a single childcare setting. Scalp micropigmentation can be thought of as a more polished version of a hair tattoo. The only difference between a routine tattoo and scalp micro pigmentation is that we carefully position the ink in the region of the roots rather than doing it blindly as is done with a regular tattoo. Furthermore, the positioning of the ink is done with care so that it does not penetrate too far into the scalp.
The treatment of f u t scars deserves special mention. It is possible that the scar will become exceedingly large and thin after a few hair transplant treatments. In such a situation, either we must perform a hair transplant on the scar or, even better, we can perform scalp micropigmentation to conceal the scarring.
*THE DONOR AREA IS WEAK
Due to the poor condition of the donor area, we only have a limited amount of grafts available to cover the balding area. We would perform scalp micro pigmentation and wait for approximately 15 to 20 days before performing low-density hair transplantation so that the end results appear considerably more fuller and natural-looking when compared to hair transplantation alone or scalp micro-pigmentation.
*SCAR AFTER GETTING FUT
Because of the extreme extraction done during a fue hair transplant, a scar is left after the procedure and micro-scarring is created. A f u t hair transplant is well-known for leaving a large scar on the back of the head after the procedure. When hair is maintained short, this can occasionally appear unsightly. In the case of a person who prefers to sport a Buzzcut style. Scars are treated with scalp micro pigmentation, which produces an exceptionally natural-looking final result that blends in seamlessly with the existing hair.
*THE APPEARANCE IS COMPLETELY BALD
The client wishes to get his or her hair cut off. We get a shaved head appearance by inserting microscopic nanodots at a very close distance from the head. Even after close examination, it is impossible to determine if the dots are little hairs or not.
*DIFFUSE HAIR LOSS ACROSS THE ENTIRE SCALP
In the case of diffuse hair loss, increasing density is recommended. There are some people in whom the hairline appears to have been preserved in some way, yet there is diffuse hair loss all over the scalp. Despite the fact that I perform hair transplants, I personally prefer to perform PRP treatment in conjunction with scalp micropigmentation to give the scalp a naturally fuller appearance. Knowing that there are just a limited number of hair roots available in our Donor area, it is important to use them as carefully and sparingly as possible.
*IMPORTANT HAIR TRANSPLANT OUTCOMES
In the case of poor hair transplant results, increasing density is recommended. An unnatural-looking hair transplant for low-density hair transplant can sometimes be corrected by re-implantation of the transplanted hair. When this occurs, I personally prefer to perform scalp micro pigmentation and to revisit the option to add more follicles to you if your hair transplant was unsuccessful. Of course, if the hair direction is incorrect, we will need to perform a revision hair transplant; nevertheless, if the hair density is inadequate, we can use scalp micro-pigmentation to increase the density.
What is the treatment for scalp micropigmentation and how does it work?
No special preparation is necessary for scalp micro-pigmentation as a result of this. There is no preparation required for the purpose of scalp micro-pigmentation. The only thing that we look for while performing scalp micro-pigmentation is that the skin in the area where we are going to perform the process should be completely healthy and free of any imperfections. In particular, there should be no signs or symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis, any fungal infection, or skin diseases such as psoriasis, vitiligo, or other similar conditions.
Time required for SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION (in minutes).
For a single session of scalp micro pigmentation to cover the forehead, we require around 8 to 10 hours of time. Depending on the size of the region to be covered, a single session could run anywhere from one hour to eight hours. The number of sessions necessary will vary from person to person depending on their expectations from the process, the density of dots per square inch required, and whether the procedure is done in conjunction with a hair transplant or as a stand-alone procedure. If it is to be used in conjunction with a hair transplant, we do scalp micropigmentation around 10 to 15 days prior to the hair transplant process to ensure optimal results.
*ANESTHESIA FOR THE CONTROL OF DISCOMFORT
Anesthesia throughout the entire procedure: The entire procedure is performed under local anaesthesia, and in certain situations, if the client’s pain tolerance is excellent, the procedure can be performed without the use of anaesthesia at all. If local anaesthetic is required, we will either do a ring block of the scalp or frontal nerve anaesthesia, depending on the situation.
*The method of SMP requires the following amount of time:
There is no downtime associated with the operation of scalp micro pigmentation; the only thing that needs to be observed is that the head should not be washed for 3 to 4 days following the procedure. It is recommended that you do not use any other chemicals to wash your head or any chemicals to spray on your head. Sunlight exposure should be avoided at all costs for the first 5 to 6 weeks after surgery. Following the surgery for scalp micropigmentation, you can return to your regular job shortly afterward.
*THE LIFETIME OF SMP
Scalp micropigmentation has a life expectancy of 2-4 years if done properly and in the hands of a skilled technician. The use of harsh chemicals, sun exposure, bleaching, and other factors might shorten the life of the micro dots.
