At Skalptec, we receive a lot of questions about tricopigmentation, and how it compares to scalp micropigmentation.
For those who are not aware, tricopigmentation is a temporary form of scalp micropigmentation. Permanent SMP stays in the scalp indefinitely unless it is removed, and requires a short top-up treatment every 3-5 years. Temporary tricopigmentation, in theory at least, starts to fade after 6-9 months and is completely gone within 2 years.
Many of those asking about tricopigmentation are concerned about the long term implications of permanent scalp micropigmentation, and believe the temporary option is somehow safer. This belief is fundamentally flawed.
The following are considerations that every prospective client should be aware of:
In common with other highly experienced scalp micropigmentation clinics, at Skalptec we provide permanent SMP, not tricopigmentation. If you are certain you would prefer a tricopigmentation treatment, please contact us and we'll be happy to provide advice.
