What is Scalp Micro Pigmentation?

Scalp Micro Pigmentation (medical hairline tattoo) is an effective and incredible life-changing treatment in which natural pigments are applied at the epidermis of the scalp in order to replicate the natural appearance of your real hair follicles or strands of hair. Your treatment will depend on the extent of your hair loss and what your desired look is.

It can be a difficult and depressing time in a person’s life when their hair starts to thin, as we associate negative stigmas with balding in our society.   Hair loss can contribute to your overall mood and can actually hurt your confidence, but scalp micro pigmentation can alleviate those problems. You will be able to regain your confidence and have your bald head completely restored, giving you a full head of well-groomed hair.

There are only five steps for Dr. Yates’ scalp micro pigmentation process:

Dr. Yates’ method is widely regarded as the best treatment in the world today, because of his application methods and the natural pigments that he uses. Since all Dr. Yates focuses on is hair, he has a thorough understanding of what fine and pigmented follicles should look like. All of our specialists are fully qualified and are well aware that hair follicles do not always grow naturally in the same direction, so they will actually mimic the natural follicles and idiosyncrasies of your unique hair pattern.

Our specialist also understand that your hair follicles are not all the same shade, which is why we routinely utilize 3-4 shades of pigment in order to create the most realistic finish. This also gives you a more vibrant and youthful hairline. Micro pigmentation is well-suited for all types and stages of hair loss, and is also an excellent treatment for all ages and skin types.

The follicle/strand build up of micro pigmentation usually takes place over the course of 3 different sessions, with each session lasting around 3-4 hours. There should be at least one week between each session, since this process allows for a very gradual and subtle rejuvenation of the hairline. You will find that even your family and closest friends will have a hard time noticing it.

During the procedure, a cartridge containing three needles that work in perfect symphony will gently inject natural pigment into the dermis (second layer of skin). Dr. Yates only uses the latest innovative technology for this procedure. Pigment spacing is determined by copying the remaining natural follicles. Our team has unrivalled expertise and we will not rest until perfection is achieved.
