Scalp Tricopigmentation

Scalp Tricopigmentation is the process of replicating the appearance of shaven hair, by introducing thousands of tiny pigment deposits into the upper dermis of the scalp. When placed by a skilled technician, the recipient appears as if they have a full head of hair, shaved to a noticeably short length.

When thousands of deposits are combined, and blended with any remaining ‘real’ hair, the result is an incredibly realistic simulation of a full head of shaved hair.

Essentially Scalp Tricopigmentation (STP) is a temporary version of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP), enabling the client to get used to the look before committing to a long-term solution.

In theory men should then proceed to have a permanent application, however in reality no clinic offers both options, so those who choose the temporary option tend to re-apply the treatment again and again.

Temporary pigments used in Tricopigmentation are designed to fade out after 12-24 months. It is non-invasive and offers exceptional guaranteed results when delivered by an experienced and well-trained technician.

There are four primary applications of Scalp Tricopigmentation,

as follows:

  • Replacement of lost hair density

    For thinning hair, Trico pigmentation enables the simulation of the missing density. This applies regardless of how much hair the recipient has lost and can even recreate a full head of hair on a completely bald scalp.

  • Recession of the frontal hairline

    This receding of a frontal hairline is often the most visible sign of balding. This technique enables the client to rebuild their hairline to its original position, or whatever position is preferred.

  • Scaring after Hair Transplant Surgery 

    Usually, the result of hair transplant surgery, all manner of head scars can be hidden using Trico pigmentation. The technique used is highly specialised, however when applied by an experienced technician, even the worst hair transplant scars can be very effectively concealed.

  • Clients suffering with Scalp Alopecia

    The unpredictable and recurring nature of alopecia, particularly areata alopecia or totalis alopecia, can make the conditions challenging to live with.

    Trico pigmentation enables the sufferer to completely hide the symptoms of scalp alopecia, even if the affected areas move or change in appearance.

There is little doubt that baldness can have a significant and lasting impact on the confidence of a person, regardless of their gender, ethnicity background or social circle. Losing hair is not a preferable circumstance regardless of what culture the person hails from, how old they are or what they do for a living.

The immediate effect is a change in the persons appearance, but longer-term issues can also become a problem such as a loss in confidence and poor self-esteem.
For many people, Trico pigmentation may offer a suitable remedy for this problem for those who desire a temporary option, this may be a better solution.
