Hair follicle replication or scalp pigmentation is a safe and effective procedure that gives the illusion of a fuller head of hair without the need for invasive surgery. Kim Kohli of Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics in Scottsdale is a skilled artist. She can permanently replicate the appearance of hair follicles, precisely matching virtually any hair and skin color. The pigment also has the ability to continue to naturally blend should you later develop grey hair or your skin tone later change. This procedure is virtually undetectable once complete making it a natural looking, cost effective option for people with pattern baldness, receding hairlines, alopecia and thinning hair.
Hair follicle replication is for men and women who want a fuller head of hair or a more natural looking bald head with the subtle appearance of hair follicles present. Many clients choose this option when they want to fill in bald spots, camouflage scars, burns or birthmarks on the scalp or fill in receding hairlines with safe and effective cosmetic tattoo ink, expertly applied to mimic the appearance of hair follicles. Scalp pigmentation is a cost effective solution that helps clients feel younger and more attractive and boost self-esteem.
Prior to your first treatment with Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics in Scottsdale, Kim Kohli will meet with you to obtain a full health history, analyze your scalp and determine if you are a good candidate for hair follicle replication. Then, she will work with you to develop a treatment plan with your needs and goals in mind.
Scalp pigmentation sessions typically take about 3 to 4 hours the first time. Many clients achieve the results they are searching for in one session. However, some require 2 or 3. Any necessary subsequent sessions typically take less time, often 2 to 3 hours. The pigment is injected using a specialized rotary machine with tiny needles that are much smaller than those used by other medical aesthetics professionals. Because of the small size of the needles, application of the pigment is deep and permanent. The needle size also helps to better control any pigmentation bleeding outside of the treatment area, making the appearance much more realistic. Discomfort is typically minimal, however, if you have a low tolerance for pain, discuss your concerns prior to your first treatment. In some cases, your primary care physician can prescribe medication to help keep you comfortable during the procedure.
After your procedure, some redness is common. This will usually subside within the first day after treatment. Avoid sweating, showers or washing the scalp for four days after treatment. Shaving should also be avoided for at least four days. Avoid direct sun exposure for at least a week after treatment. Once you resume regular sun exposure, be sure to use a high quality sunscreen to protect your scalp and the pigmentation. If at any point you have questions or concerns, contact Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics for support.
