Scalp Micropigmentation can create the look and give an impression of natural hair where hair has been lost, is patchy or is thinning due to balding, alopecia, surgical scarring or follicle transplant scarring, illness, trauma, aging or hereditary causes.
It is used to give the appearance of hair follicles, such as the shaven razor look for men or a shaded in look with dot like hair follicles or fine hair strokes for women or men with alopecia.
It can also used to design a new hairline around the forehead, side of the face and back of the head as well as fill in areas where hair loss is present. This may be a small area, larger patches or a full head. A variety of hairlines can be achieved, whether conservative, natural/soft or hard/defined.
Scalp Micropigmentation is different to traditional tattoo ink and needles. The Ecuri Scalp pigments are formulated to last and often stay ‘sharp’ for at least 5 to 8 years before a touch-up may be required and it does not turn blue or green the way regular tattoo ink can. These pigments contain a protein that causes a quick drying effect on contact with the scalp and blood which helps prevent the dots from ‘blowing out’ or being blurry. The needles used in scalp micropigmentation are 75% smaller than regular tattoo needles so they very precisely match the size of a hair follicle. Like cosmetic and paramedical tattooing, the needles are only inserted into the dermal layer of the skin which is more comfortable for the client and gives a very natural result.
