When you lose your hair, the chances are high that you’ll also lose the confidence you once had in your appearance. No matter how much you try to trivialize it, your hair is a distinguishable auxiliary part of your body. So any defect to it will certainly cause disfiguration to your appearance.
Baldness is a defect that can make you antisocial. But the good news is that the world has gone past the time when there was no solution to it. Now there’s an almost inexhaustible list of solutions you can choose from that will hide any defect to your appearance caused by baldness, one of which is capillary micropigmentation.
If it has been recommended to you and you want to know what it’s all about, this article will do justice to it. Here we’ll discuss capillary micropigmentation and why it could be the perfect hair treatment for your baldness.
Capillary micropigmentation is simply a non-surgical hair treatment option that injects pigments around a bald or thinning area to create an illusion of texture and depth, leaving the baldness almost invisible to the naked eye. It has become a perfect solution to resolve problems around alopecia, scars, baldness, etc. Apart from offering coverage for bald or barren areas of the hair, the treatment also restores hairline, giving patients their old hairline or creating a new desirable pattern.
This treatment is a remarkable alternative to a hair transplant because it’s cheaper, while hair transplant is expensive and most people can’t afford it. Additionally, a hair transplant is not ideal for some people with low hair density or those suffering irreversible hair damage. So capillary micropigmentation is a way for them to correct their defects while having a closely similar outcome as someone with a hair transplant.
This treatment is for men and women with alopecia or baldness issues. For men, the result will come out as a shaved head with short hair strands, while for women, it mostly gives full texture and depth. However, the results are usually wholesome, judging by the number of people that have had this treatment. In addition, it has helped considerably in concealing areas of baldness, leaving the impression of full hair.
Capillary micropigmentation isn’t a DIY hair treatment you can have at home. It’s a specialized treatment that requires the expertise of a trained technician to get the best possible outcomes. The process involved in the treatment includes the following:
Like other cosmetic procedures, you can never downplay the significance of consultation. It’s the best way to get an extensive insight into the treatment you’re having. Here patients are allowed to ask questions technicians are obligated to answer because every patient has the right to know what they are getting into.
The same thing applies to capillary micropigmentation. Through consultation, you’ll know if the treatment is perfect for you, and you’ll be able to see a projected outcome carried out through visagism. Visagism involves sketching out what will be the appearance of your hair after the treatment.
Capillary micropigmentation isn’t like other hair treatments done randomly all over the hair. You’ll recall we said that it deals with areas suffering baldness. So to get it right, the areas are marked out and defined. The idea here is not to go beyond what’s necessary; it’s to ensure bald areas are the biggest recipient of the pigments.
The bigger the space to be pigmented, the more sessions it requires. And that also means the more you have to pay to see the whole area covered. But ideally, it doesn’t go beyond two to three sessions.
This involves the pigments being deposited around the marked bald areas. It’s precisely done using a tool known as the dermograph. This tool gives droplets of the pigments in tiny dots all over the marked area to give the illusion of hair density.
What makes this treatment distinct is that the color of the pigments is created to sync with the color of your hair. It can be achieved even if you want it to go darker, but it’s better to always use a consistent shade to avoid hair discoloration. The first pigments are deposited to give a base before the second enhances the contrast and details, giving the hair depth and an immense finish.
You can have a third pigmentation if you want a darker feel around this area. While there’s no harm in intensifying the color, two sessions of pigment deposit are usually enough for most patients. It’s moderate, saves more money and time, and even syncs well with the pristine hair color.
It’s crucial to note that the chances are high that the patient will feel some pain or discomfort during the process. This is due to the sharp tooth of the dermograph, which punctures slightly into the scalp to deposit the pigments. But the good thing is they wane after a short period.
The fact that capillary micropigmentation is non-surgical indicates that the risks are minimal and almost non-existent. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t worth mentioning because it goes a long way in preparing you for the treatment. Hence, like other medical procedures, there are risks involved.
The major risk for capillary micropigmentation is the possibility of an allergic reaction to the components of the pigments. That’s why it’s good for the technician to have tiny drops on your skin to determine whether it’ll react negatively or not before having the procedure. Another risk involved in the possibility of using a bad technician.
The quality of the outcome always depends on who performed the procedure. While capillary micropigmentation isn’t the most difficult hair care treatment, you could run the risk of using someone that’s not good enough. A way to mitigate this risk is to do your homework on who will perform yours.
Capillary micropigmentation is effective and timely, especially for those who can’t afford hair transplants’ qualitative and quantitative demands. But if you’re having it, ensure the best technicians do it.
