Every scalp micropigmentation treatment should be preceded by a consultation. Not only is it one of the most important aspects of the entire process, it is also necessary for the technician to establish what is required. It is a chance for the technician to observe the scalp of his potential patient to make a thorough assessment on what needs to be accomplished.

The consultation is also a time for the prospective client to learn more and be at ease with the process and implications of scalp micropigmentation.

This consultation can be conducted through different methods. The preferred option of course is face-to-face, before the first session is performed. This time is used for a discussion of what to expect, selection of the clients new style and information about its aftercare.

In most cases however, due time constraints or distance, the client has a mini-consultation on the day of their first session just before it commences, therefore a more thorough consultation is usually completed in advance either via email, phone or Skype.

The very purpose of the consultation is to make certain that both parties are on the same page. For the patient, he needs to know what scalp micropigmentation is and if it is something that he can incorporate into his life for the long run. The technician on the other hand needs to be able to make sure that his client is clear on what this procedure is as well as make a proper assessment of the area that needs to be treated. Most importantly, he should be able fully comprehend what the patient wants to have done. This should always be weighed against the reasonableness of the request, to ensure the clients expectations are in line with what can be realistically achieved.

There are certain things that need to be clearly settled during the consultation stage. The first of these has to do with the technician. You must inquire about his credentials. It is not too early to do this and in fact, it is the best time to do so. Ask about his training and experience. Know if he has been able to treat someone with a similar case such as yours. Next, you should be clear about the type of pigments that will be used. Will it be for a permanent or a temporary duration only? To be precise, a discussion as to its size, shape and depth at which it will be deposited underneath the skin should also be included. There must also be a way to check the performance of technician who will perform your scalp micropigmentation as well as the clinic where you will receive treatment.

The costs of the procedure should also be discussed. You would not want to be surprised with hidden charges after the treatment is finished or even midway through it. Try to get a written guarantee as well as the terms for their services. There should also be a warranty in case of an unsatisfactory outcome.

These are just a few matters that must be established before pushing through with your decision. Refrain from going any further if your consultation does not make you feel confident with your service provider. You should avoid them entirely if you are not even given the benefit of having one.
