The technique

Tattooing is a quick and painless procedure which involves the direct application of the EMLA anesthetic cream three to four hours prior to the procedure.

To dye the scalp’s surface, it is preferable to use needles with several points. To draw the stems of hair or hair itself, the tip of the needle is better suited.

Hair pigments introduced by micro dots into the scalp will attempt to mimic the appearance of the bulb. This will create an illusion of density.

Typically it takes two to three sessions of approximately two hours in duration.

The results of this aesthetic medical dermopigmentation of the scalp will last 3 to 5 years depending on each person and the color of the pigments.
