Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp Micropigmentation – How Long Does It Last? 

The first question clients ask about scalp micropigmentation is how long it will last. Scalp micropigmentation treatments usually require 2-3 sessions and practitioners recommend getting retouches every 4-6 years to maintain the effect. 

Micropigmentation Results on Scalps: Their Longevity 

Men and women are turning to micropigmentation to conceal thinning hair and balding. There is no need to touch up the results and the procedure is quick. There is no growth of hair follicles or prevention of hair loss with this process. Tattoos on the scalp are more like scalp tattoos and require highly skilled SMP artists.

By matching your skin tone to the color of your hair follicles, scalp tattooing conceals receding hairlines and baldness. These results will last a few years depending on the factors involved. To maintain a low-cut appearance after several years, retouching might be necessary.

Duration of results before retouching

In general, the results of micropigmentation should last for at least four years after the last session. A retouch can be applied to keep the hairline neater, fuller, and more natural looking permanently. Retouching may be required sooner due to certain habits and exposures.

Among them are: 

Sun Exposure 

UV rays and direct sunlight should be avoided on your scalp. The artist will give you specific instructions, including avoiding washing your head immediately after the procedure. These instructions are designed to speed up the healing process.

You can also improve your performance by staying away from the sun.

Your treatment will need retouching more quickly if your head is exposed to sunlight and ultraviolet rays for a long period of time. To protect your new SMP results, limit the amount of time you spend in the sun.

Pigment Type/Quality

You should carefully review the type and quality of pigment before undergoing a treatment. In the presence of sunlight and the elements, some pigments require retouching sooner. Tattoo inks and SMPs shouldn’t be exposed to UV for extended periods. Unlike tattoo inks, SMPs last longer.

Each artist’s source will have a different level of quality. Micropigmentation pigments with the best longevity should be used by practitioners. You will be able to use safe, high-quality pigment matched to your skin tone if you work with a reputable artist. Retouching will not be needed for a long time. SMP of Austin uses pigments created specifically for scalp micropigmentation. 

Procedure quality

2-4 sessions of scalp micropigmentation are required, separated by 10 to 14 days. It is possible to maintain a neat appearance for up to six years or to change it as desired. The procedure is best handled by experienced practitioners, so make sure you pick one carefully. 

Precision and artistry are required for micropigmentation. Make sure you work with a scalp tattoo artist who specializes in concealing baldness.
