What is hair micropigmentation?

Hair micropigmentation for men and women is a solution for permanently masking hair loss by “tattooing” hair implantation. Our expert dermographers in Paris, at Maison Lutétia, practice gentle and non-invasive dermopigmentation of the scalp, to restore harmonious hair implantation or create a “shaved head” effect for patients wishing to keep their hair short.

What is hair micropigmentation?

Also called “tricopigmentation” or “dermopigmentation”, micropigmentation of the scalp is an aesthetic technique for men and women that requires real know-how, high-precision tools and a highly developed artistic sense. It consists of making a semi-permanent hair tattoo on hairless or sparse areas using micro-dots. The pigments used are of natural origin, and painlessly implanted in the superficial layer of the epidermis.

Harmless for the epidermis as well as for the hair and the hair system, micropigmentation does not cause any side effects and is not subject to any contraindications, except in the event of a particular dermatological problem (scalp eczema, seborrheic dermatitis or dandruff). In addition, this technique is non-invasive and absolutely painless.

A lasting solution adopted by many men and women suffering from partial or complete hair loss, hair micropigmentation helps to regain self-confidence and self-esteem, restoring the image of a rich and well-designed implantation.

When hair transplantation is contraindicated (patient too young, hair loss not advanced enough, donor area not sufficient, etc.), micropigmentation is a solution that creates the illusion of greater hair density without going through the hair transplant case. And if you are not yet ready to take the plunge of a medical intervention, this aesthetic technique is a good compromise.

In addition to a hair transplant

If you have already undergone a hair transplant whose results are not up to your expectations, and you want to complete the rendering, this technique can also satisfy you.

Finally, if your hair transplant has left a “doll’s hair” effect, micropigmentation is ideal for filling in the inter-graft spaces.

Micropigmentation: how does it work?

Using a stylus to pigment the skin, the demographer draws an imitation of hair regrowth by dots or by shading to reduce the contrast between the scalp and the hair, in order to reproduce the stem in a realistic way. hair on the skull. The very fine needle allows it to precisely place natural and hypoallergenic pigments adapted to the pH of the skin in the epidermis.

The color of these pigments is determined beforehand according to your phototype (skin tone) and the color of your hair. The depth and rate of distribution of the pigment will also be adapted according to the expected result. Depending on the desired density and the treated area, the drawn follicles will be more or less close together, to create an effect adapted to your desires. It is also possible to attenuate between the scalp and long hair and to imitate the drawing of a shaved hair to melt the scar.
