Is the treatment painful?
Sensitivity to pain varies greatly from person to person, depending on age as well as skin type. During their period, women can be more sensitive to pain. As a rule, the sensitivity of the skin decreases with age. In addition, micropigmentation on the scalp may not be performed very deeply, so anesthesia is usually not necessary.
Nevertheless, to make the treatment as comfortable as possible, an anesthetic ointment can be used, which is applied 30 minutes beforehand.
How long does a treatment take?
The duration of the treatment depends on how large the area to be treated is.
Scalp pigmentation is basically time-consuming. A circle of about 5 cm in diameter usually takes 1-2 hours. The whole head takes several hours.
Hair vitalization treatment lasts 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the area.
How many treatments are necessary?
Scalp pigmentation usually requires 2 sessions, possibly a third. The interval between sessions is between 4-6 weeks.
Hair vitalization is ideally repeated every 2-4 weeks. The progress of the treatment may vary and must be observed individually. As a rule, it is recommended to plan for a total treatment time of 2-3 months.
How long does the result last?
The color pigments last about 1-2 years, after which the color slowly fades.
It can take a few years for complete fading to occur.
Definitive time specifications in terms of how long the treatment will last are not possible.
This is influenced by many factors that are individual to each person. These include skin texture (dry or oily), metabolism, habits such as regular visits to saunas and solariums, extensive sunbathing or sweaty sports, and peelings.
To maintain a perfect color result, a touch-up is recommended after one year.
You can enjoy the regrown hair after hair vitalization for a longer time.
What is the cost of scalp hair pigmentation/hair vitalization?
The cost is calculated individually, depending on the size of the area to be processed. Therefore, a price can be determined only after the consultation.
What should be considered before pigmentation/hair vitalization?
You should be of legal age and healthy at the time of treatment and should not have consumed alcohol, drugs or stimulants. Coffee should be avoided 2 hours before the treatment.
Taking medications such as aspirin or other blood thinners (e.g. Arnica globules) should be avoided on the day of treatment.
If any of the following apply, please consult your doctor beforehand:
Are you HIV-infected, diabetic, hemophiliac, cancer patient or allergic? Do you use laser/chemical peels? Do you use a Retin A/peel treatment? Are you pregnant or currently breastfeeding? Do you have a pacemaker? Do you suffer from acute herpes simplex (cold sores), skin irritations/skin disorders, immune deficiency or autoimmune diseases?
Please do not wash your hair or use styling products one day before the treatment.
If you dye your hair, there should be 10 days between the dyeing and the treatment.
You do not need to cut your hair before the treatment. Just come with the length of hair that you want to wear later. If the thinning areas are already 50% of the scalp, it is recommended to shave the remaining hair in the future, so that the difference with the pigmented areas is not visible.
Please come to the treatment with freshly washed hair.
What should be considered after pigmentation/hair vitalization?
For the first 2 days after treatment, the scalp should not be touched to minimize the risk of infection. Washing the hair or using care products such as hair fixatives or hair sprays should be completely avoided. On the 3rd day after treatment, you may wash your hair with a mild shampoo (low-foaming baby shampoo or shampoo from the pharmacy). The water should be lukewarm. Blow dry only at low heat.
You may only dye your hair again after 6 weeks.
For 1-2 weeks after the treatment you should avoid direct sun and solarium. Sauna, swimming pool or sweat-causing sports are also taboo.
Generally, scalp pigmentation is recommended during the months when the sun is low.
For best results, we recommend avoiding chemicals during the entire treatment period! (Hair spray, fixing powder, dry shampoo, hair gel, wax, etc.) Avoid touching the scalp after treatment to minimize the risk of infection (no hair brushing for at least 2 days). Wash your hair no earlier than the third day after treatment and use only a mild shampoo (see below) throughout the treatment period. The water should be lukewarm. Blow dry only at low heat.
Protect your scalp from direct sunlight. After the second day, Hair Vitalizer (Homecare) should be used once a day.
