Frequently asked questions

Does the Procedure hurt?

I get this question all the time. The answer is very subjective, but this is what I know. Unlike a conventional tattoo, where the top layer of the skin is being destroyed by multiple, larger needles, MicroPigmentation uses a single tiny needle that is much smaller, causing much less irritation and pain. From a pain level of 1-10, most customers say it is a 3. As a matter of fact, I have had people snoring during the procedure.

Will the sun make the procedure go away?

This is probably one of the most misunderstood subject and I get this a lot. The answer is No! The sun will not make the procedure go away, but constant, over-exposure to the sun without sunblock can cause some fading over time. Taking care in the sun and using a good sunblock will keep your scalp looking good for the long haul.

Will the ink turn blue or green as time goes on?

No. We do not use tattoo ink, which contains all sorts of dye. The ink we use is one of the things that sets us apart. It is all natural ink with no chemicals so you never have to worry about your scalp turning any other color.

Does the payment cover all three sessions?

Yes. The payment covers all three sessions and once you pay, you never have to come out of pocket again, unless you want us to make any changes to the procedure i.e. hairline, etc.

Do I have to use anything on my scalp after it has healed?

No. The purpose of going forward with this procedure is to give you back time to live life without having to spend time worrying about your hair. So upon healing, there is nothing needed to maintain the procedure. Just keep your hair low and go on enjoying life.

How long does it take for the redness to go away after a procedure?

24-48 hours, depending on the individual, but normally by 24-48 hours the redness has subsided and within 1-2 weeks, it has healed.

How long does the procedure last?

6-9 hours. This is a range because each case is different, but normally, 3-5 hours on the first session, then another 2-3 hours on second then 1 for the last session (within a year).
