Scalp Micropigmentation Treatment Process
Treatment is typically completed across 2-3 sessions. Below, we’ll take you through the process step-by-step:
- Your initial consultation appointment is first. Consultations can be done in-person, over the phone, or over video chat via Skype, FaceTime, etc, in order to gain an understanding of what results you want to achieve from your treatment. Our experts will guide you through the process and help you decide which style is best for you. We then create a plan of action, mapping out what is required to reach your goal and get the results you desire.
- Next, treatment begins. Years of experience have taught us that it’s best to be conservative on your first treatment in order to achieve the optimal end result. This initial session is to lay the foundation of your new look. After the first treatment, your scalp will be a little red, but within a single day this typically returns to normal.
- The second treatment allows us to fill in more detail and go a shade darker than your initial session. This session is where your treatment really comes to life, and your new look is perfected. Any concerns, questions or requests will be handled during this meeting.
- Occasionally, but not always, a third procedure may take place. Third treatments are typically done by the request of the client, if they would like to go even darker.
How it Works
When we implant our ink into the affected area, we carefully match your natural hair color with skillful precision. Additionally, we shade darker than your natural colour, which gives the illusion of a shadow and the appearance of three-dimensional, natural hair.
The treatment at Hairline Ink is administered softly, in a gentle approach, and results look unbelievably natural.
Each client’s needs are unique. During your consultation, we will talk to you about exactly what results you want to get, and ensure a custom procedure, designed to give you the desired effects that you’re looking for.
The Range of Scalp Micropigmentation Options
There are a variety of options/styles available. We have outlined some of the most popular below:
Soft Hairline and Widowed Peak
Many people want their current hairline lowered, replenishing where it has receded over time, and giving the appearance of fuller hair and a clean hairline. We follow the natural hairline by layering the impressions, thus giving the realistic appearance of hair with no hard line. We make sure to match the ink color perfectly to that of the client, resulting in an incredibly effective and strikingly natural result.
Adding Density to Thinning Hair
Men and women of all ages have found Scalp Micropigmentation as their solution to cover or fill in thinning hair. Thinning can result in a wide, undesirable scalp area showing through the hair. Typically, the person will have an even coverage across the scalp, but the density drops as the hair loss progresses. Scalp Micropigmentation replaces the lost density, resulting in the appearance of an even, full head of hair.
With this focused and specialized approach, we treat the front hairline and let it blur into density with a natural look. The initial treatment is gentle and soft, increasing density throughout the rest of the thinning hair. We also create a three-dimensional effect, giving the appearance of a natural shadow. This technique is a great choice for you if you have had a hair transplant but didn’t end up with the desired density.
The Permanent Edge Up
The “Edge Up”, which is also known as the “Jamie Foxx”, is an extremely popular choice. With this particular procedure, it is very important to begin conservatively with the hairline. There is a lot of preparation required before starting to create the hairline and a side temple area first. We carefully match the color and density precisely during these procedures to create the illusion of a head full of hair with a sharp hairline, in addition to a robust and youthful edge-up. Hairline Ink creates the very best edge-up styles which are often sought after by celebrities.
Scalp Micropigmentation Treatments for Women
Many women suffer from hair loss and thinning hair. Hairline Ink specializes in creating an underlying effect, which creates the appearance of a natural, full head of hair. This is the ideal treatment for women. Many women need color added to their scalp to cover natural separations made from long hair. If you can see scalp, we cover this up to allow for it to look healthy and full. Scalp Micropigmentation is perfect if you are a woman who is thinning on the top or across the crown section of your head. We have worked with and treated many female alopecia and surgery scar clients.
Scalp Micropigmentation for Hair Transplant Patients
If you have had a hair transplant, you may have been left with scars as a result of this procedure. The technique we use at Hairline Ink is a highly advanced style of Scalp Micropigmentation which doesn’t just cover the scars, but also gives the appearance of a fuller head of hair by adding density to existing hair, or creating the look of a shaved head; depending on the client.
Scalp Micropigmentation is the perfect solution for the effective concealment of scars of all kinds:FUT strip scars, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) scars, scalp reduction scars, and Historic Plug or Cobblestone scars from old-fashioned hair restoration procedures.
Most hair transplants are not as effective as Scalp Micropigmentation due to the sheer lack of donor hair. People are often left with only two choices: They can continue having multiple hair restoration treatments that leave patients with more scars and cost even more money, or proceed with Scalp Micropigmentation, which provides guaranteed results and little-to-no ongoing maintenance – Seems like a pretty easy choice, right?
Some of our clients will come to us after having as many as fifteen hair transplants. After they went under FUE or strip scar surgery, they are left with severe scarring, plug holes on their heads, and a resulting sense of insecurity. We utilize Scalp Micropigmentation to cover up your scars, giving you a renewed sense of confidence. Our procedure gives you a guaranteed result, putting an end to frequent hair transplant surgeries, all while covering up the scars from previous surgeries.
(Clients experience redness immediately following treatment, from anywhere from 30 minutes to 8 hours, depending on their skin type.)
The Hairline Ink technique has a proven track record in camouflaging hair transplant scars for clients. For scar cover up there are two options:
Keep your hair long, in this case we will go under the hair to camouflage the scar.
The second option, is to shave your hair down in order to blend it into the follicles and completely camouflage the scars. This option is the recommended choice and takes between 2-3 sessions for the optimal results to be achieved.
Scalp Micropigmentation + Hair Transplant Combination Treatment
Many hair replacement physicians will refer their clients to Hairline Ink to augment a hair transplant. Scalp Micropigmentation can work with hair transplant as a pre-planned combination procedure. By combining traditional hair restoration and Hairline Ink’s highly advanced technique, the client has double the benefits: real texturized hair, with the appearance of thickness and fullness that only Scalp Micropigmentation can provide — a truly innovative way to achieve real results.
It is best to visit us in person for a consultation to decide at which stage of your hair transplant Scalp Micropigmentation should be performed. In the majority of cases, the hair transplant procedure should be done in the first instance. However, there may be cases in which the Scalp Micropigmentation should begin before the medical procedures. A consultation with Hairline Ink is always recommended, as we love speaking with potential clients to answer any and all questions you may have.

Why People Choose Scalp Micropigmentation
Scalp Micropigmentation will give you a look of a full head of hair, just after a fresh – close cut hairstyle. No one will notice that it is an ink treatment, you can return to work the day after your procedure and people will think you look great, but they will have no idea that you underwent treatment. The look of our Scalp Micropigmentation is so real that no person or camera will ever pick up on your secret.
There are a wide range of reasons you may be looking into Scalp Micropigmentation as your hair loss solution. We have treated thousands of clients, each with differing reasons and causes of hair loss. Whatever the reason, Scalp Micropigmentation is your best option.
With regular hair transplant procedures, particularly FUE, most hair-density will be lost within the first few months, so it can often take up to a year to get the best results out of those procedures.
With the Scalp Micropigmentation technique, density will be added, and the desired results start to appear immediately after treatment commences.
The length at which your hair can be kept after the completion of both procedures is entirely dependent on your individual hairstyle. With the combined approach, you can have more density and fullness without the need to shave. After several months or years, you may want to have your treatment touched up.
