It would be great to have an instant solution for baldness. There are different options to choose from in the market today. A person with thinning hair can easily go for special shampoos, topical creams or medication. Those with a more pronounced form of baldness can choose to go for advanced methods through surgery. Others believe that natural or even supplemental means can help serve as effective counter measures against their baldness. All of them however cannot rightfully claim permanence or quickness in their implementation.

The only method that can truly be regarded as being able to create a permanent result in a short space of time is scalp micropigmentation. In addition, it only requires a short amount of time to be completed. This does not mean however that the treatment can help alleviate baldness overnight. It requires a steady and deliberate approach to create an illusion of hair, which is ultimately the end goal of this procedure.

Scalp micropigmentation can be completed in two sessions, although most clients will require a third. This will vary of course depending on the clients requirements, as well as physiological factors such as the strength of the clients immune response. Those with pronounced scars as well as people experiencing more random baldness due to alopecia areata or similar might need more sessions.

Time between the initial and the next session

A scalp micropigmentation treatment can never be completed in one session, despite claims to the contrary by a handful of competitors. The technician requires at least two sessions to complete his task, even for those clients with relatively mild hair loss. Most of the pigment deposits will settle in and fade after the first session. This is actually a good thing, as it will provide the technician with an opportunity to work on the areas necessary to complete an effective semblance of hair with the use of additional pigments.

Mid-session recovery times are different for every client, however a minimum of 5 days should be allowed between sessions to enable the scalp to heal sufficiently, and it is recommended to wait a full week before proceeding with the next session. By this time, more of the pigments have been able to fully settle into the scalp.

The succeeding sessions after the second

Those patients requiring more than two sessions will usually wait longer before beginning the next. The pigments applied during the second session need to be able to completely settle in and fade. To do this, the scalp must be given an opportunity to heal. This will require about a month or so before the technician can conclude that a third session is necessary. An exception to this is when it is patently obvious that another one is necessary after the second session is complete. Only then can a succeeding one be scheduled in advance.
