About the method
DHI micro-pigmentation is the process of getting hairlike dots on your scalp that appear to be tiny hairs and is also known as Cosmetic Hair Follicle Replication. It is not a tattoo, nor a form of cosmetic makeup. Scalp micro-pigmentation can be used in between current hair to give it a thickening effect or it can also be used on a bald area to create a shaven, denser look. This is a semi-permanent treatment with results lasting 4-5 years.
How it works
Scalp micro-pigmentation is a procedure in which tiny dots are ingrained on the scalp, creating the illusion that the scalp is densely populated with hair follicles. It works by having the patient in a seated position while the experienced DHI Dermal Therapists perform the method to the scalp using the finest instruments in the micro-pigmentation field to apply the ink to the desired areas. Patients are able to achieve the look they want in one sitting and enjoy immediate results.
A cut above the rest
Micro-pigmentation will deliver natural looking results by using an ink tincture that matches your hair colour. We go to great lengths to ensure the colour is correct and apply the ink to provide a look that is natural and unnoticeable to the wider population. When the technique is applied to a scalp, whose hair has been shaven by a razor, it will give the appearance of growing stubble. For those who micro-pigment in between current hair, it will give the effect of having more hair follicles.
Both genders, male and female, who are confronted with androgenetic alopecia can use the micro-pigmentation technique as a solution to their hair loss. It provides a non-invasive and pain-free solution that doesn’t require the transplantation of hair follicles. It is quick, painless, and the results are seen immediately. Minimal amount of time is required in the chair for the procedure. Patients who wear a hairpiece can have this procedure and it can also be done on facial hair such as eyebrows.
