Here some of the most commonly asked questions about scalp micropigmentation.
Does Scalp Micropigmentation eventually fade?
Color fading to is a normal occurrence when we are injecting ink into the skin. The ink used during the Scalp Micropigmentation process does fade over time but only to a lighter color such as is the case with a normal tattoo. As the ink ages and the skin replenishes itself it will only fade to a lighter color. With maintenance, however, you may never see your tone fade at all. Following a daily regime of sunscreen and sometimes touch ups will keep the look for years.

Is there a difference between scalp micropigmentation and tattoos?
Absolutely. Although scalp micropigmentation is similar to a tattoo, there are major differences. First, the scalp micropigmentation process uses a different machine. Similar to that of a permanent makeup machine, the needles are smaller and inject ink at a different speed. We also only penetrate the upper dermis as opposed to tattoos which goes through various layers when injecting ink. The ink used is also not the same as tattoo ink and does not change color.
Why do people get Scalp micropimentation after hair loss surgery?
