Scalp Process

The treatment process for Scalp Micropigmentation is tailored to ensure your skin has enough time to heal in between sessions. Your skin is a living canvas therefore each session will require a two-week healing period to preserve the integrity of your skin. Each session will increase the amount of density which will simulate a contrast between native follicles and new impressions. As the color deepens and the impressions begin to heal, an incredibly soft and natural shade will remain on the skin. Once all sessions are completed your scalp will be finished, and you can follow up with someone from our team in two years for a touchup. If you are in a high-profile environment, perform strenuous exercises, or have high sun exposure daily it is recommended to follow up via email once a year to get clarity on whether a touchup is necessary.

Hairline

The first session will include a pre draw of the new hairline which will be soft, hard, or hybrid. Once a new hairline is approved the first session will begin. On average the first session is normally two to three hours long. A soft hairline will be staggered for a hyper natural effect, a hard hairline will resemble a barber line up, and a hybrid hairline will mimic a slightly aged hairline at the temple points. On average three passes will be made from the hairline to the crown to create a very soft outline on the skin. As you continue your next three sessions the crown will get darker with color. The front of the hairline will be made to match your age, preference, and density. The first session will heal after two weeks which ensures that your canvas is ready for your second session. First session requirements are to wear SPF daily and maintain the no strenuous activity rule.on whether a touchup is necessary.

Second Session

The second session will occur approximately two weeks later in order to fill in faded areas, and blend in the crown and sides. On average the second session is normally one to two hours long. Depending on the type of hairline chosen at the first session, the second session will accentuate these features by perfecting the temple and crown. All Scalp Prodigy technicians err on the side of caution, so the impressions on the first session are light and sparse, therefore leaving substantial room for changes at the second session. A contrast is created on the scalp as each pass overlaps with the healed first session. Density is achieved by layering the scalp with precision and color adjustment. Hyper realism is achieved by softly creating a pointillism effect on the skin and decreasing the color dilution to mimic real follicles. The second session will heal after two weeks which ensures that your canvas is ready for your third session. Second session requirements are to wear SPF daily and maintain the no strenuous activity rule.

Third and Fourth Session

The third and fourth session are only required to finish the scalp and create a final true density on the crown. On average the third session is one hour long and focuses primarily on the back of the crown. Normally the hairline is completely healed and perfect at this point, but mild peppering is done to blend in any remaining faded areas. The third session will heal after two weeks which ensures that your canvas is ready for your fourth session. On average the fourth session is one hour long, and only affects the hairline and mid to back crown. The purpose of this session is to ensure perfect blending with native follicles. Once you are completely happy with the hairline, crown, sides, and temples your treatment will be completed. The fourth session will heal after two weeks which ensures that your canvas is ready to resume normal activities. Third and fourth session requirements are to wear SPF daily and maintain the no strenuous activity rule for four days before resuming normal activities.

pigment line

We use an organic ink certified and tested with a 100% natural shade from 5pm shadow. 5pm Shadow is made from carbon black, distilled water, and alcohol. We believe in exceeding your expectations by only using the best ink on the market with proven results. We are able to customize each shade to ensure every dot will color match each client. Our ink is non-toxic and of the highest quality, which differs drastically from traditional tattoo inks which have been known to migrate or change color when they enter into the skin. Over time our ink will simply fade with sun exposure into a soft shade. Touchups are not required but offered to maintain a crisp look every few years after service is rendered.

Needles

Scalp Prodigy technicians only use the best needles on their clients. All of our needles are single use, and properly discarded into our sharps container after each use. All of our machines are cleaned in between each service with medical grade Cavicide wipes, and the grip is submerged in quat solution in between clients to ensure maximum cleanliness. We ensure the strictest sanitary practices possible to maintain our permits, licenses, and insurance. Each needle is a Japanese steel which allows the needles to stay sharper for a longer length of time, which shortens the time per session. Each needle has a safety membrane that protects the machine from back flow and is 100% EO gas sterilized.

F.A.Q.

Below are the average compiled questions asked during appointments for your viewing pleasure.

The average cost of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is $2000-$4000. Prices can be less or more depending on the level of hair loss. 

After your Scalp Micropigmentation treatment you must avoid touching, showering, or shaving the treated area for a minimum of 4 days. Avoid carrying out any activities that may cause excessive sweating. Do not use a moisturizer, or shampoo, direct sunlight, swimming, sauna, or a steam room for 4 days. On your 5th day you should wash your head gently with cold water and baby shampoo.

During your free Scalp Consult we will go over your current hairloss and what would look the most natural for your face. We will choose the hairline and discuss the color before getting started to make sure the results are realistic.

Scalp Micropigmentation on average is not painful, however depending on your pain threshold their are certain areas of the temple which can sting due to the skin being thinner in that area. On a scale from 1-10 the average client rates the pain between 2 to 4.

Normally four sessions are necessary to give a true gradient on the scalp. If additional sessions are required a touchup may be necessary at the standard rate.

All tattoos fade over time due to your lifestyle, but most Scalp Micropigmentation lasts about 3-5 years before it begins to lighten. We however, do recommend yearly evaluations to ensure your scalp is in tact as you enter into each new year. There are many reasons a scalp can fade, so staying in contact with your technician can avoid those issues from happening. The most common reason premature fading occurs relates to shampoos or conditioners with acid ingredients, lack of sunscreen, and external environments. An SPF 50 and a moisturizer is advised to keep your scalp looking impeccable.

There is no downtime to begin your Scalp Micropigmentation journey. Normally four sessions are booked two weeks apart in order to give your skin time to heal. You can actually come in on your lunch, or after work since we are open late to complete your free consultation. 

Cutting your hair truly depends on whether or not you have most of your hair. If too much is missing it is recommended to cut down to the skin in order to ensure true density can be achieved. A textured look can be achieved when you create a real gradient with several layers of impressions.

Apply moisturizer three times daily to prevent dryness and flaky skin. Unless you had a density procedure, avoid growing your hair too long. If you do not need to shave your head, we advise using an electric shaver only. We recommend a Remington HC4250, Pitbull Silver IPX5, Walh Professional Blading Clipper, or similar shaver. Please avoid wet shaving for 10 days post procedure.
