Rocking Edged up look!

Scalp Micropigmentation has been around for over a decade now. But it’s popularity as a great option for treatment for baldness has picked up in India only over last few years. With Scalp Micropigmentation, one can achieve a sharp appeal of a Shaved head Look, even for the highest grade of balding. The treatment involves implantation of carbon based pigment in upper layer of skin, that heals as an impression of an emulated hair follicle.

Scalp Micropigmentation is known by many names like Scalp tattoo and Hair Tattoo in common language.

But the question is- Is scalp micropigmentation really a tattoo?

Well, the answer is both Yes and No!

Scalp micropigmentation has its own set of techniques, pigment preparations and above all its own aesthetic sense.

Scalp Micropigmentation can be called a kind of tattoo because, it, after all is an implantation of pigment in skin. So technically and legally in many countries it is seen as a specialized form of cosmetic tattoo.
However, this does not mean that all tattoo artists are by default able to offer good scalp micropigmentation treatments. This is because Scalp micropigmentation has its own set of techniques, pigment preparations and above all its own aesthetic sense. So, while some tattoo artists who have trained themselves well in scalp micropigmentation definitely can offer a good treatment but many others without a proper training or experience in scalp micropigmentation might spoil the results.

On the other hand, some people feel that Scalp Micropigmentation should only be performed by medical doctors or dermatologists. Again, the truth is that only a doctor who is well trained in scalp micropigmentation can offer good results and not all doctors by default.

So for good results, one must ensure that the person offering scalp micropigmentation or hair tattoo/ Scalp tattoo must have undergone a training in this particular field. He may be a doctor or not , may be a tattoo artist or not, but must be trained and must have experience in scalp micropigmentation with demonstrable original results.

At Follicraft, Pune, India we usually do not use the terms like Scalp Tattoo and Hair Tattoo, the reasons are:

1. It makes people believe that it is a treatment that any tattoo artist can offer, which is not true.
2. There are certain hairstyles done by barbers that are as well called Hair Tattoo, thus causing a confusion.
3. We believe, tattoo is more about expression and lifestyle and on the other hand Scalp micropigmentation is more of a restorative procedure.
4. Also, at Follicraft, we perform each treatment with a clinical grade hygiene.

Due to these reasons, we prefer to call it Scalp Micropigmentation, as that represents this treatment in a much better way.
