Hair loss is not an uncommon occurrence. Around 50 million men and 30 million women in the United States alone are facing this issue. Luckily, there are many options available to halt the progress of hair loss. But none of the alternatives guarantee that they will save you from hair loss permanently. 

Here’s how scalp micropigmentation comes into the picture. 

The chances are that you might have heard about this latest trend. While it’s quite a popular technique nowadays to get that short buzz cut look, many others find it a bit confusing. Questions like- what is it? Will anyone detect scalp micropigmentation? Is it noticeable? In other words, most people end up asking, “will my scalp micropigmentation look real?”

The answer to this question is “YES.” 

But first, let’s start by answering:

What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

It is a drug-free, non-invasive technique and a permanent solution to your hair loss problems. This technique uses microneedles to replicate the hair follicles. The best part of scalp micropigmentation is that the results are almost immediate, and you don’t require much maintenance. In other words, it’s a subtle yet effective change. 

Now getting back to where we started!

There are many elements involved that ensure the “real” look. What are they? Let’s find out!

Blending Technique

The idea behind this technique is to blend with the existing hair follicles. So, whether you have hairs on your sides or the top, this technique will create a seamless look by blending it well. 

Color Matching 

The professionals match the existing hair color with the pigment to create an undetectable look. They look at your scalp and see what color scale does your hair follicles fit. This enables them to create a flawless buzzed look around your scalp. 

But hang on! 

The first two are only possible if you choose the right technician. 

The Professional Doing The Job

It might seem like a cliche. But it is a critical element that ensures your scalp micropigmentation looks real. Remember, it’s an aesthetic solution that conceals your hair loss. So, you must have the right professional by your side to do the technique. It will look amazingly incredible when done correctly. In other words, with the right person, you can quickly solve the problem of receding hairline with scalp micropigmentation. 

Note: Other than this, make sure to plan your future hairline well in advance. If you are unsure about it, ask the practitioner about recommendations. And once your treatment is complete, make sure to adhere to the after-care routines or avoid spending too much time under the sun. 

In the End- Returning to Original Question

Will my scalp micropigmentation look real? Yes, it will. But if you get it right. Only then can you expect a natural and clean scalp. Remember, you are investing in it emotionally and financially. It won’t be good if you receive a poorly administered treatment. 

So, choose the right person for this job, discuss the treatment in detail, and begin your hair restoration journey with flying colors.
