What is Micropigmentation?
And How Can It Help You Combat Baldness And Hair Loss…

Scalp micropigmentation and fading News Article

Hair loss and male pattern baldness is on the rise in the UK. A recent report - The Psychological Effect, Pathophysiology, and Management of Androgenetic Alopecia in Men – suggests that nearly 40% of men in the UK are either bald or balding. This distressing development can have a big effect on a man's self-esteem, particularly for younger men. For years there have been quack hair loss cures such as rubbing marmite into your scalp and expensive, painful treatments including unnatural looking hair transplants or even more obvious wigs. At last though there is a simple, safe and cost-effective solution: micropigmentation from Skalptec.

What is micropigmentation?

Micropigmentation is the world's fastest growing solution to the problem of hair loss, alopecia and baldness. The micropigmentation process is non-surgical and involves having minuscule deposits of ink placed into the upper layers of skin on the scalp. When the procedure is complete and with thousands of deposits in place, the effect is to give the appearance of a freshly shaved head. Any suggestion of baldness vanishes and you are left looking like you have simply chosen a sleek, modern hairstyle.

What is involved in the micropigmentation process?

Following an initial consultation with one of our award-winning team members, and having established the exact pigment colour that's right for you, we'll begin the first of your applications of ink into your scalp. Each session typically lasts around three hours. Now that may sound like a long time, but our technicians are craftsmen who take great pride in what they do and so they go to infinite pains to ensure the end result is nothing short of natural-looking. And speaking of pain, no, the procedure isn't particularly painful. Some clients are initially under the impression that the level of discomfort will be akin to having a tattoo; but don't worry, it isn't. Between sessions there will be a small amount of redness and 'dotting' as the scalp heals over but this soon passes. At each session, we will carefully layer up these pigments so that by the end you will be left with a head of shaved-looking hair that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your remaining hair.

Is scalp micropigmentation safe?

When carried out by a skilled technician in a specialist environment such as at a Skalptec clinic, the process is completely safe. The inks we use are natural products and if you are concerned about any allergic reactions, we can do a batch test to be certain. There's no risk of infection either. Because the pigments are layered in the upper levels of the dermis, the procedure is non-invasive and so doesn't leave your skin open to bacterial attack. At Skalptec we also ensure that all our instruments are sterile before use, so you can rest easy.

As the procedure is non-surgical, there's no lengthy recovery period following your scalp micropigmentation and there's no need to take drugs either. If you are particularly sensitive to discomfort it can be an idea to take a couple of ibuprofen before each session, but otherwise this is a medication-free way to a great looking hairstyle.

Why choose Skalptec for your micropigmentation procedure?

When choosing who will conduct your procedure it's worth knowing that the team you are dealing with are qualified, professional and work to the highest standard. Skalptec are all these things. In our team, we have award-winning specialists who have helped hundreds of people overcome the problem of baldness and hair loss, customers who have become our greatest advocates as you can see from reading our latest client testimonials.

How much does the procedure cost?

Another great advantage of a scalp micropigmentation procedure is the cost. With prices starting at just £1,000 for a hairline restructure and around £2,000 for a complete standard micropigmentation treatment, it's as affordable as it is effective. Skalptec can even arrange finance to help you spread the cost, and because we don't spend vast amounts on advertising – we don't need to as we get so many referrals from satisfied existing clients – we can keep our rates competitive too. A typical Skalptec client saves around £500 by coming to us and those requiring more specialist help can save as much £1,000.

Is this type of treatment just for baldness?
