It is a technique of medical tattooing
and semi-permanent tattooing technique that allows to camouflage a
hair loss or a scar on the scalp
of the scalp, thanks to sterile, single-use pigments that meet the European Medical Device CEIIb standards.
In practice, tricopigmentation aims at inserting pigments in the superficial layer of the capillary dermis to simulate the presence of hair.
If the patient has long hair, the specialist will draw micro-strokes to camouflage the slightly bald areas, if the hair is short or absent, he will tattoo micro-dots to produce a « shaved head » effect, and if it is desirable to plan a more intense densification, then the Tricoroller method will be used, thanks to a handpiece equipped with 54 needles. In all three cases, the result is immediate and natural, with a realistic look.
Hair dermopigmentation is suitable for most people suffering from hair loss (baldness, androgenetic alopecia, alopecia) or who have scars on the scalp (due to graft removal, skull surgery, chemotherapy, accidents or burns). It is also very complementary to patients who have had hair implants, in order to create an interesting densification. Tricopigmentation can be performed on both men and women, whether they have long, short or short hair.
✔ Hair densification
✔ “Shaved head” effect
✔ Scar camouflage
Trico-pigmentation is not a surgical operation, but a superficial procedure. For greater comfort, some sessions can be performed under local anesthesia by a specialist anesthetist.
A consultation is mandatory before each service. It will allow the Expert to define all your expectations, to target the areas, to determine its layout and to choose the color adapted to your pigmentation. A test and a consent form will complete this consultation for a personalized follow-up, in compliance with the European standards in force.
An estimate will be given for the hair dermopigmentation: €80
During the first session, the objective is threefold: to identify the areas to be pigmented, to define the methodology to be used (micro-dots, micro-strokes or shading) and to choose the color of the pigments.
The creative session offers a light pigmentation, we would get about 30% of the result, after healing.
The following month, the specialist will face the result obtained following the cellular renewal. He will then proceed to denser pigmentation on the concerned areas.
This session will allow us to obtain an intensification of up to 70% of the result, after healing.
To obtain a natural result, the expert will carry out a pigmentation of any smoothness and with meticulousness which will have for objective to perfect the work already carried out.
Thanks to the finishing session and after healing, we will obtain 100% of the result, for a natural effect.
YES – They are apparent from the first session of hair dermopigmentation. However, it is advisable to wait 3 to 4 weeks (cell renewal) between each session for the pigments to stabilize and take on their final color. The complete result of the treatment will be obtained in 3 months.
YES – The natural pigments used for tricopigmentation are semi-permanent and bioresorbable.
They retain their full brilliance from 6 months to a year after the procedure. When the color begins to fade, a new touch-up session is sufficient to re-pigment the affected areas. If no retouching is done, the color will fade and then gradually disappear over a period of 2 to 5 years.
NO – It all depends on the technique used, which is either painless, or a doctor will intervene in order to perform a local anesthetic on the areas to be covered, so that the procedure is completely painless.
NO – No special preparation is required and you can resume your social and professional activities immediately after each dermopigmentation session. You will only need to wait a week before exposing yourself to the sun, going to dusty places, making intense physical efforts, swimming in chlorinated water or going to a sauna or steam room.
NO – Trico-pigmentation requires the intervention of a scalp specialist who has the experience and skills to imitate hair in the most natural way possible and use medical grade pigments.
YES – It is strongly discouraged to perform tricopigmentation in the following cases: progressive skin diseases, infectious and viral diseases, severe insulin-dependent diabetes, infectious dermatoses of the scalp, cardiac, renal or hepatic insufficiency, congenital immune deficiency.
YES – Hair dermopigmentation is an ideal complement to hair transplantation. It fills the space between the grafts and masks the scars caused by the hair removal.
YES – Tricopigmentation is a very effective solution for short hair. In this case, the specialist will tattoo micro-dots to create a “shaved head” effect.
YES – Sometimes alopecia is progressive and it may be necessary to proceed with a new session of hair dermopigmentation. In this case, a yearly check-up should be done to identify new areas to be covered.
NO -Tricopigmentation only affects the superficial layer of the dermis and does not damage the hair bulbs in any way. In other words, it does not prevent hair from growing and does not aggravate baldness.
