Scarring alopecia is permanent. Scarring alopecia irreversibly destroys the hair follicles, whether caused by an accident, surgery, inflammatory disease, infection or autoimmune disease. It leaves a fibrous scar that makes the skin smooth and shiny. Restorative trichopigmentation is a medical tattooing technique that has been commonly used since the 1990s to conceal scalp scars.
The benefits of reparative trichopigmentation
- Naturally and realistically conceals scars on the scalp
- Lasts between 1 and 4 years
- Suitable for men and women
- Works on all hair types (long and short)
- Recommended for scarring alopecia
What is restorative trichopigmentation?
Restorative trichopigmentation is a medical and semi-permanent tattooing technique. The dermograph injects pigments into the superficial layer of the scalp to naturally mimic the presence of hair. It allows to effectively conceal any fibrous scar, whether the patient has long, short or even shaved hair.
For which patients?
Trichopigmentation is suitable for people who have scars on their scalp, whether they are caused by accidents, surgery, inflammation, infection or congenital conditions. Trichopigmentation can be performed on both men and women, whether they have long or short hair.
What results to expect?
The effects of trichopigmentation are immediate and it only takes one to four sessions for the scars to be concealed in a completely natural and realistic way. The tattoo can last from one to four years before gradually fading.
