Capillary Micropigmentation:Everything You Need To Know

This treatment stimulates the growth of hair in a very natural way by using capillary micropigmentation. When the client is finished with the treatment, the person has the appearance of having shaved their head.

For whom is this?

Getting hair micropigmentation treatments are ideal for people who suffer from alopecia (irreversible hair loss) and who are not proper candidates for surgery, that is, people suffering from alopecia who have such a loss of density that they cannot accept grafting based on the chance of damaging their existing hair.

Exactly how does the treatment work?

Alopecia sufferers can benefit from micropigmentation by injecting pigments under the scalp’s skin to restore their appearance. Rather than the vision of baldness with bright bald spots, it gives the appearance of a shaved or shaved head. A micro pigmentation treatment for baldness takes about three sessions.

A micropigmentation procedure does not require surgery, hospitalization, nor postoperative care. As it is an ambulatory capillary treatment, the patient can continue his normal activities after the session has been completed.

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. In this way, the treatment is almost painless, the patient will only feel the anesthesia punctures initially.

What is its duration?

Typically the effects last between one and three years, although there are some cases that last as long as five years. Organic or inorganic pigments and different types of skin can affect the result, and it can be quite different from one individual to the next. Three years is considered an adequate time span. A patient should perform a maintenance procedure to restore micro pigments when they detect a loss of tonality or uniformity.

Is anyone capable of doing it?

As a general rule, yes. However, contagious diseases transmitted by blood should be reported. Since this technique involves needles, it poses a risk to the professional who does it without the necessary knowledge.

To prevent further bleeding, alcohol and anticoagulants such as aspirin should not be consumed before treatment. Nevertheless, the professional must present these indications days before the procedure.

The treatment follows what process?

In the aftermath of the treatment, you will notice a slight inflammatory reaction on the scalp. That’s normal since the needles were handled carefully. When excess pigmented ink has been injected into the skin, part of it can escape through the pores. It doesn’t affect the subsequent quality of the pigment in the head and it’s normal.

A thin crust will cover the entire scalp in the first few days. However, this is only an illusion created by the pores healing at millimeter intervals. Several days later, the crust falls off, leaving a darker than desired color.

The growth of collagen fibers will occur after three weeks of healing the superficial dermal cells, giving the skin the elasticity required for healing the scalp. Approximately ten to twenty days after the initial application of the micropigmentation, you can begin to see the final appearance of the baldness.
