Remember to take proper care for a longer duration.

If you lost or are losing your hair, and you don’t want to take pills or use shampoo, or specialized cleansing creams; Nor are you interested in undergoing the scalpel for a hair transplant, here I tell you that there is a cosmetic alternative to show off a new appearance.

If you agreed to be bald, but still want to improve how you look and you don’t want surgeries or medical treatments, I have good news for you … micropigmentation of the scalp It may be an alternative for you.

The scalp micropigmentation It is a revolutionary process mainly for men who are going bald, explained Erik Cavagnuolo, owner of Ahead Ink. It is a process in which the pigment is injected creating the appearance of a shaved head. “Each pigment is injected with a needle and a natural hair appearance is achieved by a random movement.” “The results are instantaneous,” said the also chief technician at Ahead Ink. “It’s subtle, but at the same time it makes an incredible change in a person’s appearance.” It looks like you have all your hair, but shaved.

Micropigmentation of the scalp is not a tattoo. The tattoos, although they lose their color, are permanent because the ink is injected deeper into the dermis. On the contrary, in this procedure the injection is superficial to the point that if you do not do a touch-up, in about two years your body eliminates the ink completely.

The procedure hurts a little, but from one to ten, with number ten being the most painful, most patients mention that they only feel a number of three pain, which is relatively little for this type of treatment. Each session lasts two to three hours. Although the person does not have any hair, this effective treatment manages to create a natural hair line in just three sessions. Also, the full treatment can cost approximately two thousand five hundred dollars ($ 2,500) when they want to look shaved hair, create lines and hair thickness. This includes all three sessions and post-procedure care treatment.
