Our needle is a quarter the size of a 3 round needle, used by companies that implant pigments using permanent makeup guns. This gives us the advantage of creating actual follicles, that look just like hair. Other companies have no choice, but to create a fill, or shade that gives the illusion of hair. Our needle can be compared to making the dot of a small pin. If you look up very close to our impressions, you can’t tell the difference between the hair and the impressions. The pain level most clients tell us is 2 out of 10. Men and women who have scarring from hair transplants, they tend to have a little more discomfort due to sensitivity. For a standard Scalp Micropigmentation treatment that includes the hairline, front, top and crown with blending you can expect to have 14-15 thousand hair follicles tattooed using our point by point placement.
