Not all patients are suitable candidates for surgery and some don’t like surgery. The good news is cosmetic tattoos have been used for decades by men and women to camouflage their balding and thinning scalps . Although previous use of cosmetic tattoos have been attempted by cosmetic service providers, not until recently has this become an art form now used by dermatologists- hair restoration specialists with better outcomes.
Micropigmention, a permanent cosmetic tattoo, is now a popular non- surgical option to create the natural look of a fuller hair. It is a semi-permanent or permanent cosmetic procedure that is ideal for patients who are not candidates for hair transplant surgery, or it can be used as an adjunct to hair transplant procedure. Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) mimics the short hairs of a closely shaved scalp.
