What is scalp micropigmentation?

Scalp micropigmentation or tricopigmentation is a treatment that simulates hair growing from the scalp by scalp selective micropigmentation. The main objectives of the treatment are modifying, correcting, embellishing and balancing certain features semi-permanently by implanting pigments in the skin.

It is an excellent choice to hide scars on the scalp, and simulate fuller hair and a shaved head in patients with severe or total alopecia.

What is the scalp micropigmentation technique?

This technique consists in injecting a small amount of pigment in the superficial layer of the scalp dermis in order to achieve a natural aspect. This procedure is almost painless and, without doubt, it is a sound therapeutic option and it is the best choice to cover bald spots, for example, those caused by scars.

As a complement to hair transplant, it provides wider extensions in weak donor area.  Micropigmentation may be carried out in the recipient area where we have carried out a micro-transplant for it to look fuller, or in the donor area, when we have extracted a number of hair follicles for it to look fuller as well.

This procedure is carried out 2 or 3 times, one hour per session approximately, if it is a small area.  Larger areas may take longer, depending on their size. Since it is a painless procedure, it is relatively simple and fast.

More specifically, this technique reaches a depth of 0.25 to 1.75 milliliters into the skin. Therefore, it provides the desired look without damaging the scalp.

Once the procedure is over, the scalp may be slightly irritated or swollen due to the use of needles, but there is no need to worry. In just a few hours, the scalp will go back to its normal condition. It is possible that some pores expel excess ink but this will not affect the final result.

Scalp Micropigmentation – Men and Women

Although the causes of alopecia may vary depending on gender, scalp micropigmentation is a concrete solution that is useful for both, men and women. It is a process that requires no anesthesia, but in some cases local or topical anesthesia may be used. By means of this treatment, men and women can hide certain bald spots or improve their aspect, since their hair will look fuller.

The design of the front line in men and women may be different, depending on the result sought.

Like tricopigmentation, there is almost no difference between men and women or between individuals with short or long hair. If there is a scar or partial alopecia (in very specific areas), it will not be necessary to shave the head in order to receive this treatment.

What are the three possible results?

Results are usually excellent, since micropigmentation is a very advanced and well-developed technique so it is almost imperceptible. It can be used in patients with total or partial hair loss.

The expected result in some patients is a buzz cut look or shaved look, as if their scalp was naturally shaved. This look can be achieved in patients with areas completely bald due to hair loss.


Other patients who have a small amount of hair want it to look fuller.

Some other patients may want to hide scars from prior hair micro-transplants or from other types of surgeries in the scalp.

As in hair micro-transplant, the design of the front implantation line is essential for micropigmentation to achieve good results. Such design is of course different in men and women, as we have already mentioned.

It is also important to take into consideration color intensity, which will depend on the area we are dealing with and on whether we want to mark some dots more than others.

It usually lasts for about three years. After that period, new sessions will be necessary to touch up the design.

What is the price of tricopigmentation?

The price of tricopigmentation ranges between €700 and €3,500. It depends on several factors, such as the areas to be treated, the characteristics of the alopecia, etc. Although does not have the same results as a hair transplant, for obvious reasons, it is still an excellent choice to look better at a lower cost. If you want to have both treatments, they are perfectly compatible.

It is certainly a good option to hide your alopecia and it is more affordable than hair grafting.

How to remove hair micropigmentation

It is very unlikely that you want to remove your tricopigmentation once it’s done. Anyway, if you are not happy with the results, for any reason, don’t worry, there is a solution.   The process can be reversed using laser technology that removes the marks.

This process requires topical or local anesthesia and it is usually easier than removing a tattoo, since micropigmentation only reaches the epidermis.
