Scalp Micropigmentation in the Twin Cities
If you have a receding hairline, bald spots, or thinning hair that’s negatively affecting your confidence and self
image, a hair tattoo could provide a permanent solution. Scalp micropigmentation is a procedure where a trained
medical professional injects custom-colored pigmentation into the epidermal layer of the scalp to create the illusion
of hair. Compared to hair transplants, which may involve several long, invasive procedures, scalp micropigmentation is
completed in just one session and creates a permanent solution that only requires occasional touch-ups. Schedule a free consultation today!
What is Hair Micropigmentation and How Does It Work?
Though scalp micropigmentation resembles a tattoo, it is starkly different than a traditional tattoo. Microblading for
eyebrows is a better comparison, because it involves tattooing tiny “hairs” to fill out the brow. Scalp
micropigmentation also seeks to create the illusion of thicker hair, but it involves a much different method of
implanting pigment. Instead of creating hairlike lines as you would when microblading eyebrows, the technician uses
tiny, layered dots in different hues to create natural-looking depth and definition. This style of tattooing is
referred to as “pointillism.”
To begin the process, we’ll create your custom pigment before getting it ready to put in our hand tool. At Medical
Tattoo Centers of America, we are able to custom-match pigments for your hairline tattoo to ensure it matches the rest
of your hair perfectly. The hand tool has a sterile needle attached to the end where the pigment comes out. The needle
is inserted into the epidermal layer of your scalp, where the pigment will take effect.
Scalp micropigmentation is minimally invasive and completely safe when you go to a licensed medical professional. Micropigmentation takes significant time and skill, and by
choosing the right team, you can expect the best results. Contact us
