Scalp Micropigmentation [Hair Tattoo] 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 [hair tattoos] 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.

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 via phone or email to get started!
