WHAT IS SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION – AKA SCALP STIPPLING
Scalp Stippling, also known as Hair Follicle Restoration & Scalp Micropigmentation, is a permanent cosmetics procedure for men & women with hair loss, visible scars from a hair transplant procedure or as an alternative to hair transplants all together. It is also used to give Alopecia sufferers back something that was once theirs, a perfectly quafted look of a full head of hair. This procedure has gained popularity over the years because of it’s cost effectiveness, minimal down time and realistic outcome. With this procedure, scalp micropigmentation covers bald areas by imitating hair stubble. This creates a much more youthful appearance by giving the illusion of a full head of hair with a fashionably “shaved” haircut. It is also fantastic for men and women with a longer hair style but are thinning because it gives the look of thicker/denser hair at the root. Some patients combine scalp stippling with hair transplantation. This creates the appearance of hair density far greater than that possible with the hair transplant procedure alone. This is particularly important in cases when the number of hair follicles available for transplantation is very limited.
