Scalp Micro Pigmentation – Tricopigmentation
Dr.Sam and the team behind NuaCell have provided a bespoke and gold-standard Tricopigmentation scalp micro pigmentation clinic called MHS CLINIC for many years in the clinic in Malahide. These services continue, under the exact same team in the same clinic, but now operate under the new clinical umbrella of NuaCell!
What is Scalp Micro Pigmentation?
2 Types of Scalp Micro Pigmentation?
There are 2 main types of SMP available on the market today, a semi-permanent treatment known as Tricopigmentation, which is the treatment performed at NuaCell, and a fully permanent treatment.
SEMI-PERMANENT SMP - TRICOPIGMENTATION
The benefit of tricopigmentation is that it allows a lot more flexibility to the client. As we age we undergo several changes that can dramatically affect our appearance. The hair can become thinner and change color, the skin can develop wrinkles and lines, the shape of the face can change and so forth. Hence, a permanent SMP procedure that is performed when you are 30 may not be age-appropriate, or look natural, when you are 45 or 50, for example.
Tricopigmentation allows you to adapt and change the the treatment over time to suit these changes in your appearance, and even to allow the treatment to fade completely if you decide it is no longer something you want.
NuaCell only performs semi-permanent Tricopigmentation.
Permanent pigments also tend to look slightly darker, especially in the initial stages, than non-permanent pigments, and in many cases the actual equipment and treatment techniques are also different.
Some permanent treatments do require touch ups over time, although not as regularly as semi-permanent treatments, as they can fade slightly, especially if exposed to sun in the long term.
NuaCell does not perform permanent SMP procedures.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Scalp Micro Pigmentation involves placing tiny dots of pigment into the upper layers of the scalp. These dots are applied in a way that mimics the appearance of a hair follicle, and can be placed closer together or further apart, and in particular arrangements, to create the illusion of having more actual hair in that area.
This can be used to disguise hair loss, rebuild hairlines, enhance the appearance of density and so forth.
NB. SMP does not stimulate the growth of actual hair in any way, but simply creates a dot of pigment that looks like a hair follicle.
How to Get Started
Hair loss occurs in a variety of different ways, and each person has a unique skin type, hair color and quality, facial structure and so forth. SMP may be a fantastic option for some, but may not be as relevant for others.
The best way to gain a full understanding of the treatment, all of the factors that can affect suitability, and an idea of what kind of results may be achievable in your own case, is to book a consultation with an SMP specialist at NuaCell.
Below are some of the more common hair loss conditions which may be suitable for treatment using Tricopigmentation at NuaCell. This list is by no means exhaustive. However what is important to note is that each case is examined individually before a recommendation is made for any treatment. This will generally involve a physical examination and potentially further testing to properly diagnose the condition and ensure suitability for treatment.
