Scalp micro-pigmentation just like with semi permanent makeup or cosmetic tattooing involves placing minute particles of colour pigment about a millimetre below the skin’s surface to simulate hair.

An expert will use different micropigmentation techniques, such as tiny dots to mimic hair follicles or a stubble effect and hair strokes, to produce a realistic finish.

For male pattern baldness, the treatment is carried out on the areas where hair is missing or thinning making them less visible creating the illusion of natural hair growth by reducing the contrast between any existing hair and the skin.
