What is Non-Surgical Micro-Pigmentation
Micropigmentation is a non-surgical hair restoration technique that minimizes the appearance of baldness or thinning by embedding colored cosmetic pigment into skin.
The pigment is color matched to the patient’s hair color to minimize the balding scalp showing through the thinning hair. Essentially we create a shadow using micro-dots. The patient can shave their hair down to a stubble and these dots look like short hairs.
We recreate the appearance of short stubble hairs with a specially designed instrument that is thinner than the width of a hair. This technique makes it virtually impossible to determine what is a hair and what is a virtual hair – even under close inspection.
Micropigmentation is great for those with short hair and more!
- short stubble hair styles
- Filling in thin areas
- camouflaging scars and birthmarks on the scalp area
- scars from old transplants

Do You Have Questions?
Micro-pigmentation is permanent but will start to fade over time. Some patients find it necessary to touch-up after 8 to 10 years. We use high quality pigment and the process can be repeated more than once.
Micro-pigmentation is best for patients with medium to dark skin tone and brown or black hair. It is more challenging to create the illusion of hair when a patient has light skin or a light hair color such as red or blonde.
Most patients find that it is not uncomfortable because the pigment is not being embedded deeply into the skin.
It is extremely difficult to distinguish between a real hair and a virtual one.
Yes. Unlike a tatoo that goes through several layers, micro-pigmentation is done only in the first layer which makes it easier to remove.
No. The pigment used is pure and doesn’t have constituent colors mixed with it. Tattoo pigment often will be several other colors mixed together to create another color making the ink more likely to shift color and hue over time. We use a vegan friendly, salt based, pure dermal pigment.
