Hair Simulation Treatment
Treatment of Follicular Simulation – Micro pigmentation
Hair follicles simulation, also called Scalp Micro Pigmentation recreates the look of natural hair, covering scars, partial baldness and improves hair density by simulating hair follicles using the artistic hair simulation technique.
Our hair simulation technique emphasizes the contours of the scalp and therefore fits in well with the fashionable crew-cut.
Scalp Micro Pigmentation Treatment is aimed at those suffer from scars on scalp / partial baldness that wear their hair short.
Treatment is not recommended for complete baldness as result would not look natural.
The process of micro pigmentation:
We penetrate through the epidermal layer using a needle that inserts the pigments.
This layer of cells changed every few weeks, so this technique will gradually fade but can last up till about four years.
Unlike a tattoo which uses a needle that penetrates the layer of subcutis, the layer we penetrate has no regeneration of the pigment cells so Hair Simulation can last for a long while.
• Before and After Treatment – Hygiene and Directions:
♦ Disposable gloves must be used.
♦ Cleaning and Disinfection of the treated area are also a must.
♦ Injection needle must be placed in the trash after use (never reuse).
♦ Always replace nail while replacing the needle.
♦ Sterilization, cleaning and disinfection of treated area and equipment that come into contact with the color (pigment).
♦ Never return that was left of the pigment for reuse.
• The treatment process begins by following:
♦ disinfection of treated area.
♦ Test for allergies.
♦ Numbing the area.
♦ Drawing the outline of treated area.
♦ Get patient consent and signature.
• Insertion of pigment by the following shades:
♦ light brown for light skin tone and light hair (blond).
♦ dark brown – for medium skin and hair colors (light brown).
♦ black brown for dark-skinned to very dark.
♦ honey brown shade for Red hair / honey / ginger.
♦ medium gray for fair skin with gray / silver hair.
♦ dark gray for dark-skinned with gray hair / silver.
♦ Skin tone – used for skin tone corrections after mixing with brown to reach patient’s skin tone.
♦ White – lighten shades.
♦ ♦ ♦ It is important to recognize and understand color theory as we teach it.
• Disinfection of area after treatment:
The patient will be instructed and it will be explained to him that treated scalp area will show some redness, pigment will seem darker and will take a day or so to calm down.
There are several things the patient should avoid the day of treatment: wetting the treated area, wiping it, sun exposure, scratching / peeling and using creams / other materials on treated area.
Any further treatment will improve the look of the scalp and hair simulation will integrate with natural hair.
Number of treatments will vary from patient to patient depending on his scalp. To preserve the final result treatment should be repeated with emphasis on one treatment every year.
• In the case we are treating a scar reaction is different because scar tissue reacts differently comparing to non-scarred skin tissue and therefore it requires a greater number of treatments and the use of a slightly darker shade of pigment.
In addition the patient will come back within a few months for a session that strengthens the fast fading pigment in the scar area.
Treatment duration ranges from 30 minutes to two hours depending on the treated area.
• It is Strictly forbidden to perform hair simulation in the following cases:
♦ patients undergoing chemotherapy.
♦ patients who suffer from blood clotting.
♦ those who suffer from infectious diseases and HIV / hepatitis.
♦ patients with epilepsy.
♦ those who suffer from diabetes.
♦ people with heart / liver conditiond and high blood pressure.
♦ patients who consume alcohol / drugs.
♦ during antibiotic therapy.
