Tricopigmentation is a method of scalp micropigmentation (SMP) developed in Milan, Italy.
Scalp micropigmentation is the process of applying microscopic tattooed dots in order to mimic the appearance of hair.
Tricopigmentation produces consistent, natural-looking results. The artificial pigmentation looks realistic and creates the illusion of fuller density in thinning longer hair.
The type of ink used in this procedure only lasts on average for two years, which allows a new application. This is not a disadvantage, but the best option. Regular SMP begins to look unnatural over time if hair loss or pigment migration have occurred.
Tricopigmentation allows for the artificial hair line and overall hair pattern to be modified with each application in a way that’s appropriate to the individual’s age. SMP can sometimes leave a fifty-year-old male with the unnatural hair line of a thirty-year-old because it can last for twenty years. Tricopigmentation, however, allows the hair patterns to be readjusted over time so that the procedure remains unnoticeable and therefore natural.
- there is no limit to how much scalp area can be covered by this micropigmentation method
- Tricopigmentation is applicable to any degree of hair loss, and can resemble hair stubble on a completely bald scalp
- It can also add additional density to pre-existing scalp hairs that would look barren and wispy otherwise.
