Weighing The Pros And Cons Of Scalp Micropigmentation

Weighing the Pros and Cons of Scalp Micropigmentation

Thinning hair and receding hairlines are common problems for a lot of people. As a result, there have been many treatments developed to try and solve this issue. Most of them require constant maintenance and upkeep. Scalp micropigmentation, on the other hand, offers a permanent solution. Let's take a look at some of the pros and cons.


It's A One and Done Deal

As we've already mentioned most hair loss solutions end up being expensive and time-consuming. The biggest pro for scalp micropigmentation is that you only have to do it once. No more messy creams, ointments, or foams. It just gives you permanent good looks.

It Looks Natural

No one will believe you if you tell them it's not real. This one-time treatment can camouflage thin or bald spots giving you the illusion of a full head of hair. It can even help reduce the appearance of scars. If you tell someone that it's actually a tattoo they're going to want to take a closer look to make sure that you're not telling them a big one. Even up close they’ll be hard-pressed to tell it’s not real.

No Costly Maintenance

As with any tattoo if you spend a lot of time in the sun you may need to touch up somewhere down the line. Other than that there are no ongoing costs with scalp micro pigmentation like there are with some other hair loss treatments. You invest in your appearance once and enjoy the results for years to come.


It’s really hard to come up with a list of cons when it comes to scout micro-pigmentation. One thing that could be considered a downside is that it's a fixed look. It's there to stay, and there's no way to change it. But isn't that really the point to begin with? So, maybe that's not really a con after all. The only other thing that could be considered a shortcoming of this treatment is the fact that some fading is to be expected over the years, and a touch-up may be needed to keep it looking good. But then, needing a touch-up after a few years is a lot better than having to apply creams and phones every day.
