Like most tattoos that change into blue or green after some time, will the pigment for Scalp Micropigmentation do the same?

The agents behind the eventual release of the undertones as an after effect of traditional tattooing there are some chemicals or metallic elements like aluminium, copper, iron, lead, etc. Here at Skalptec only use natural pigments so no, definitely not. There is no chance of discolouration.

Can Scalp Micropigmentation camouflage head scars?

One of the best things that we do in Skalptec is to camouflage the scars on your head using Scalp Micropigmentation making it look like they never existed at all.

What advantages does Scalp Micropigmentation provide?

Apart from the fact that Scalp Micropigmentation is harmless and can absolutely improve your self-confidence and looks, it boasts other advantages like no continuing costs for preservation and your scalp will not need a long period of time to recover.

How does Scalp Pigmentation differ from a regular head tattoo?

Some people refer Scalp Pigmentation as a "medical hairline tattoo" but there are huge differences with Scalp Micro-pigmentation and a regular head tattoo. First, our application is only on the dermal layer of the scalp unlike that of a traditional tattoo which goes to the epidermal layers causing pain and occasional swelling. The needles we use are only about a quarter of the size that they use on normal tattooing. Small as they are, these needles prevent any discolouration or discharge of undertones that usually happens in usual tattoos.

Does hair colour have any bearing when it comes to Scalp Micro-pigmentation?
