Trico pigmentation 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 Trico Pigmentation (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 Trico pigmentation 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.
