Thinning hair or a complete loss of hair is a common, and often embarrassing, problem for men and women. Many turn to over-the-counter and prescription remedies, only to be disappointed, while others undergo expensive and invasive hair transplant procedures. Fortunately, Permatech Permanent Makeup offers an easier, less invasive, and more reliable alternative: hair simulation, also known as scalp re-pigmentation or scalp micropigmentation.
Whether your hair loss is related to aging or to a medical condition or procedure, our highly skilled permanent makeup artists can greatly improve your look through hair simulation. It’s similar to tattooing, except in this process, we apply a pigment that complements your hair color directly to the scalp. By concentrating on areas where the hair is thinning or missing, the re-pigmentation allows your hair and scalp to blend together, creating the illusion of a fuller head of hair.
This procedure is effective for hair loss around the face and at the crown of the head, as well as along a natural part in the hair. Scalp micropigmentation is a great option for those who want a surgery-free, long-term solution to hair loss.
Hair simulation can be completed in as few as 1-2 visits, and healing is usually complete within 5 days. The process is considered permanent but should be refreshed every 3-6 years.
Alopecia is a common hair-loss disease, while trichotillomania is an impulse control disorder in which sufferers pull out their own hair. With both medical conditions, hair loss can be permanent, especially when the conditions affect the eyebrows and eyelashes.
At Permatech, our caring and well-rounded team of artists is equipped to help alleviate the embarrassing effects of alopecia and trichotillomania. We can give you the illusion of a fuller head of hair using hair simulation techniques, as described above. We can also give you the illusion of eyelashes and eyebrows.
