The Top Myths about Scalp Micropigmentation Debunked

Scalp micropigmentation is a non-surgical hair restoration treatment that involves the injection of small dots of pigment into the scalp to create the illusion of hair. Despite the increasing popularity of scalp micropigmentation, there are still many misconceptions surrounding this procedure. 

In this blog, we’ll debunk the top myths about scalp micropigmentation. You are also welcome to drop by MM Seattle SMP for a consultation.

Myth #1: A Painful Procedure

One of the most common myths about scalp micropigmentation is that it is painful. However, it really depends on the individual. The scalp is a relatively insensitive area, and most people report feeling little to no discomfort during the procedure. 

Scalp micropigmentation is a lot less painful than a traditional tattoo. Numbing the scalp with a topical anesthetic is not necessary. During the procedure, you are allowed as many breaks as you need. At MM Seattle SMP, you are welcome to watch your favorite Netflix show while you are getting treatment to help you forget about any discomfort.

Myth #2: Looks Fake

Another common myth about scalp micropigmentation is that it looks fake or like a tattoo. However, when done correctly, scalp micropigmentation should look natural and subtle. 

At MM Seattle SMP, Minela Mujdza, a skilled SMP artist, will use different shades of pigment to create the appearance of depth and texture, making the scalp micropigmentation virtually indistinguishable from real hair.

Myth #3: Only for Men

While scalp micropigmentation is most commonly associated with men, it is also an excellent option for women. 

Women may choose scalp micropigmentation to create the appearance of fuller hair or to cover up scars on the scalp.

Myth #4: Expensive Treatment

While scalp micropigmentation can be more expensive than other hair restoration treatments, such as hair transplants or hair systems, it is a one-time cost. Unlike other treatments that may require ongoing maintenance or replacement, with proper maintenance, scalp micropigmentation can last up to eight years, making it a cost-effective solution over time.

Myth #5: Only for Those with Complete Baldness

Scalp micropigmentation is an excellent option for those with complete baldness, but it can also be used to create the appearance of thicker hair for those with thinning hair or diffuse hair loss. 

Additionally, scalp micropigmentation can be used to camouflage scars or create the appearance of a more defined hairline.

Myth #6: Only for Dark Hair

Scalp micropigmentation can be used on all hair colors, including blonde, red, and gray. Different shades of pigment can be used to match the natural hair color, making the scalp micropigmentation virtually undetectable.

Myth #7: Scalp Micropigmentation Is a Tattoo

While scalp micropigmentation involves the injection of pigment into the scalp, it is not a tattoo. Scalp micropigmentation uses a different technique and specialized pigments that are designed to match the natural hair color. 

During scalp micropigmentation, the pigment is not implanted as deeply as in a regular body tattoo.
