A hair tattoo or crown hair transplant, is a superficial, non-invasive cosmetic enhancement to a receding hairline or baldness, which produces the appearance of a new, long hairstyle. It is popular with men and women alike. The procedure is done with an elective laser technique, where targeted light beam is used to burn away the hair follicle. Since there is no cut, no stitches are required after the treatment.
As it is non surgical, there are no incisions, bruises or scars to deal with after the treatment. In fact, after the hair tattooing procedure, you will feel a lot better because your head looks thicker and more contoured. The results also last much longer than other methods of hair tattooing like waxing. Here are some important facts about hair tattoos:
Hair Tattoos, also known as crown balding or “mohawk” tattoo, are growing in popularity nowadays. Skalptec clients love these tattoos for many reasons. One reason is that they help them to enhance their facial features. Another reason is that they help to create a sexy, yet edgy, look for the person.
This type of tattoo involves the use of laser technology to treat your skin with ink that is similar to that produced by a laser printer. That ink contains pigments that are colored and are transferred to your skin via a small micropigment gun. This micropigment is used in treating the top layer of your skin, called the epidermis, and creating a smoother effect over time. The most common type of micropigment used for this procedure is called melanocyte stimulating hormone or MST, and this is the one that is most commonly used on the scalp.
The process is safe, but it does take a little bit of time to fade away your tattoo. It usually takes three to nine months for the tattoo to fade away completely, depending on how light or dark your tattoo was when it was created. It does, however, require practitioners to use a fade-away procedure every three to six months.
While a lot of people think that a laser tattoo treatment will increase their chances of getting a celebrity look, there are actually a number of advantages to going for this option. A major advantage is that it helps your skin to age gracefully. Since smp does not remove the pigment, it is also less likely to show signs of aging. Finally, if you are planning on using a self-tanners or a self-tanner, having a scalp micropigmented tattoo can help you to get the best results without the risk of irritating your skin.
Whether you want to re-create your hairline, add greater density to existing hair, camouflage scars or create a close shaven, buzz-cut look, SMP could be the solution for you. Contact us today for hair tattoo.
