Scalp Pigmentation

At Facethetics, we are aware of the negative effects hair loss may have on one’s general wellbeing and sense of self. For those who are balding or suffering hair thinning, our scalp pigmentation services provide an option that looks natural and restores the appearance of a full head of hair.

What is Scalp Pigmentation?

In order to give the appearance of a thicker, denser head of hair, specific pigments are applied to the scalp during a non-invasive cosmetic process called scalp micropigmentation, or SMP. For those who want to improve the appearance of density and coverage after undergoing hair transplant surgery, alopecia, receding hairlines, or thinning hair, this approach is especially helpful. The appearance of closely cropped hair or a shaved head can be mimicked naturally by using scalp pigmentation.


Our scalp pigmentation procedure at Facethetics is performed by skilled technicians with extensive training and experience in micropigmentation techniques. Here’s what you can expect during your appointment:

1. Consultation: You will speak with one of our scalp pigmentation specialists about your objectives, goals, and concerns regarding hair loss during your appointment prior to the operation. To create a treatment plan that is specific to your needs, we will examine the state of your scalp, the density of your hair, and your ideal hairline.

2. Design: Our expert will meticulously design the hairline and produce a natural-looking pattern of pigmentation that complements your facial characteristics and aesthetic preferences using cutting-edge procedures and specialized equipment. To get the best results, we’ll consider things like ideal hair density, skin tone, and hair color.

3. Pigmentation:In order to simulate individual hair follicles, our technician will utilize a specialized micropigmentation instrument to deposit color into the scalp at specific depths and angles during the operation. To create a realistic, three-dimensional look, layers of pigment are applied to attain the required density and coverage.

4. Adjustments: To make sure you’re happy with the outcome, you’ll have the chance to offer input and make changes to the hairline shape, density, and color as the process progresses. Our aim is to provide you with a hairline that looks natural, improves your appearance, and gives you more confidence.

5. Aftercare:You’ll receive comprehensive aftercare recommendations to help your scalp pigmentation last longer and encourage appropriate healing following the operation. This might be avoiding sunlight and harsh chemicals, maintaining a clean and moisturized scalp, and going to follow-up sessions on time.


  • Natural-looking Results: The appearance of real hair follicles is mimicked by scalp pigmentation, giving the appearance of a larger, denser head of hair.
  • Confidence Boost: Scalp pigmentation can increase self-confidence and enhance general well-being by giving the appearance of a full head of hair, making people feel better about themselves and their looks.
  • Low Maintenance: Scalp pigmentation is a more convenient and affordable option for hair loss, requiring less maintenance and upkeep than hair transplant surgery or other hair restoration methods.

Side Effects

While scalp pigmentation is generally safe, some potential side effects may occur, including:

  • Temporary Redness or Swelling: Mild redness or swelling of the scalp is common immediately following the procedure but typically subsides within a few days.
  • Scalp Sensitivity: The scalp may feel sensitive or tender for a few days after the procedure, but this usually resolves on its own.
  • Color Fading: Over time, the pigment may fade slightly, requiring touch-up sessions to maintain the desired color intensity and longevity of the results.


To ensure optimal healing and long-lasting results, it’s essential to follow these aftercare guidelines:

  • Keep the scalp clean and moisturized using gentle skincare products recommended by your technician.
  • Avoid exposure to direct sunlight and UV radiation, as this can cause the pigment to fade prematurely.
  • Refrain from scratching, rubbing, or picking at the treated area to prevent irritation and disruption of the pigment.
  • Attend follow-up appointments as recommended to monitor your progress, assess healing, and perform any necessary touch-up procedures.
