Actual Micro Scalp Pigmentation Result - Carl

Carl After

Carl, who is originally from Wales has always had pride in his appearance, and had noticed issues with his hairline. Over the past 8-10 years he has gradually lost most of his hair on his scalp, so much so he has shaved it all off. His hairline has receded, and his crown has practically disappeared. Carl was looking to achieve an actual Micro Scalp Pigmentation result that looked natural to the naked eye.

"I had extensive hair loss and didn't want to have a hair transplant, so after discovering the Micro Scalp Pigmentation treatment online I decided instantly that it was the right treatment for me. I keep my hair short these days so this treatment would be just the job for me."

An Actual Micro Scalp Pigmentation result by Vinci Hair Clinic

Carl researched what options were available to him, and after discounting hair transplants as an option he found the treatment: Micro Scalp Pigmentation. Vinci offers this treatment at most of its clinic's worldwide, and after reviewing some of Vinci's MSP videos on youtube, he decided to arrange himself a consultation at our clinic in London.

“I had to travel to London, but this didn't bother me as the quality of MSP treatments I had seen on the youtube video's, and also on Vinci's website convinced me that they produce the best MSP treatments, and it was definitely worth the journey(s) to have this treatment done. After 4 sessions with the fantastic staff in London, the result is there for everyone to see and I am so happy with it. Friends and Family look at me and tell me there something different about me, and when I point out its my new hairline they are totally gobsmacked and amazed."

Because of the actual Micro Scalp Pigmentation result Carl achieved, means he needs only to shave his head to a short cropped look using an electric shaver every couple of days. This keeps his existing hair short enough so it seamlessly blend in with the MSP treatment. “It's simple to maintain, and thats important for me. The blending has been fantastic between the pigment to my hair so its not really possible to see where my hair ends, and where the pigmentation starts."

Your Scalp Micro Pigmentation Procedure

Questions to Ask Before Your Scalp Micro Pigmentation Procedure

smp-questions-2

When making the important decision to go ahead with scalp micro pigmentation – or not – it is essential that you carry out plenty of research, gathering together a number of useful questions to ask when you have your initial discussions with your practitioner. Because you will have those initial discussions if the clinic you are hoping to use is one that can be trusted to get it right. If you are not given the opportunity to talk through your potential procedure, the options available to you, and the aftercare needed then our advice is to seek out a new clinic, and a new practitioner. Although not major surgery, scalp micro pigmentation is not something that should be taken lightly.

smp-questions-1-300x200

 

It’s not just about the procedure. It’s about you being comfortable with where it will be carried out, who will be working for you, and the information you have been given. The following questions are a great way to get started – but you are sure to think of more of your own, depending on your own personal circumstances.

  1. Is the practitioner experienced, and if so how many procedures have the carried out?
  1. What qualifications does the practitioner have; where did he or she get them from?
  1. What is involved in the procedure – what should you do beforehand to get ready, how long will the SMP take to complete, how many additional appointments will you need, and what kind of aftercare will you be required to attend to?
  1. If the SMP is being carried out in order to cover up scars from a hair transplant procedure, have you discussed exactly what kind of results you should be able to expect?
  1. Has your practitioner got any photographs of his or her previous SMP patients – before, during, and after – to show the kind of work he or she does? And is it possible to speak to previous patients, or read some references?
  1. Aftercare is essential – do you feel happy with the information you have been given? Do you feel able to carry out the instructions? If not, make sure you are completely sure before you begin.
  1. How many follow up appointments will you need?
  1. What is the total cost going to be? Does it include any further procedures that may be needed?

How Scalp Micro Pigmentation Covers Hair Transplant Scars

How Scalp Micro Pigmentation Covers Hair Transplant Scars

SMP-covers-scar

Scalp micro pigmentation was originally designed as a clever and extremely effective way to give those with thinning or lost hair a way to look as though they have a full, healthy head of hair again, but it was soon realised that it has other uses and benefits too. The main one is that it can cover the scars left behind after a hair transplant procedure.

Hair transplants are incredible, allowing those who thought they had lost their hair for good to have a second chance for hair to grow. But it is an operation and, just like any operation, a hair transplant will leave a scar. There are different techniques involved in hair transplant operations, and each one leaves a different type of scar; the most common scar is known as linear scars, and are evident after a technique known as the ‘strip method’. As technology advances, the scars produced by hair transplant procedures are becoming less and less visible, but they are still there, which is why scalp micro pigmentation (SMP) is such a great way to ensure they won’t be seen.

The main advantages of using SMP to ‘camouflage’ hair transplant scars are that it is quick, safe, effective, and can be done by the same hair clinic as the initial treatment, meaning you are in familiar surroundings. The only maintenance involved is ensuring that the hair is kept short enough that the SMP doesn’t look out of place. Ideal.

It will take two to three sessions to completely cover a hair transplant scar using SMP. Often the entire scalp will be treated at once, meaning that, should the patient’s hair begin to fall out once more, they will still have the look of a shaved head, so they won’t have to suffer with baldness again. The fact that this procedure will also cover up the scars is a bonus. Bear in mind, though, that the SMP cannot be done at the same time as the hair transplant, as the scars will need time to heal completely. It could be as long as six to 18 months before the SMP can be carried out.


Treat Scalp Shine After Scalp Pigmentation

How To Treat Scalp Shine After Scalp Pigmentation

scalp-shine-1

Scalp micro pigmentation is a wonderful thing. It enables those with thinning hair or bald scalps to have the chance of a scalp that looks as though it has hair – it is a tattooing technique which gives the illusion of a shaved head. Very clever. And very much loved by those who have gone through with the procedure.

But one problem that remains even after the scalp micro pigmentation is that of scalp shine. The more scalp on display, the more surface area there is for the light to bounce off it, causing it to shine. Although scalp micro pigmentation will make you look as though you have a shaved scalp, it won’t give you the texture of hair, which means that scalp shine is a probable issue. This then takes away from the illusion that you have a full head of hair.

So what to do?

Firstly, you need to cleanse your scalp every day using something like a facial exfoliator. Using normal body soap is fine, but it may dry out the scalp, leaving it looking unpleasant and feeling itchy. An exfoliator will remove some of the smoothness (thus making it less able to reflect light) without drying the skin out.

You also need to moisturise your scalp to keep it healthy. Many people make the mistake of using oily or greasy moisturises but this just adds to the shine problem. Ideally, you need to be on the look out for matte moisturisers. They are available on the high street, and reduce shine significantly. Many even have added SPF protection, which means that you don’t have to use greasy sun creams in addition to them, which is great – you’ll be saving money (which you could put towards a slightly more expensive matte moisturiser) and protecting your delicate scalp at the same time.

Some men prefer to leave things alone, and that’s fine. If you don’t mind having a shiny scalp, you don’t have to do anything about it. You’ll still need to cleanse and moisturise though!

Scalp Micro Pigmentation Near You

Scalp micro pigmentation (the process of carefully adding a permanent tattoo to the scalp in order to give the look of real hair, and to enhance fading and reducing hairlines) is a great idea, it’s perfect, it’s exactly what you need to give you the confidence you’ve lost since losing your hair. But it’s no good. The only clinics that do this sort of work are located in London, and that’s nowhere near you. You live in Scotland, in the north of England, you live abroad…

So although you would love to contact Vinci Hair Clinics and discuss your options with one of their excellent professional experts, you can’t. Because you can’t keep travelling to London for procedures. You don’t have the time. It’s too costly.

There is no need to travel to London (unless you choose to) as each of our clinics offers scalp micro pigmentation, provided by a practitioner with plenty of experience of doing exactly this.

If you are ready to take the next step, contact one of our nationwide clinics and make an appointment to discuss the options open to you. You will learn exactly how the procedure works, what it involves, what your recovery time will likely be, how to care for your SMP once the work is complete, and you will have the chance to ask any questions you may have about it – and you can expect useful, truthful answers in return.

Scalp micro pigmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures we carry out – contact us for more information, and get ready to change your life for the better.


Designing Your Perfect Scalp Micro Pigmentation Hairline

perfect-smp-hairline-design-1

There are some hair transplant and procedure clinics that don’t listen to their clients. We’re not one of them. When you come to us to discuss your options, we’ll give you advice, chat about what the procedure entails, and listen to exactly what it is you want us to do – what you want as a final outcome to the procedure you’ve chosen. And with scalp micro pigmentation (SMP), you have even more say than ever about how you will end up looking.

SMP is a personal process, and at the end of the procedure you should – if you are using a reputable, expert clinic – have a unique look that is exactly what you wanted. SMP is a flexible way to produce a new look, and it’s cost effective, safe, and confidence boosting too.

Your initial consultation for SMP will give you the opportunity to learn about the process, and to give you the chance to ask as many question as you need to about what happens before, during, and after the procedure. It’s also where you will be able to design your very own, unique, new hairstyle. Choose the colour, the texture, where you want the hairline to begin and end to give you the most natural finish. And the expert practitioner will help you along the way, offering you ideas and concepts you may not have considered before. It all depends on skin type, face shape, your favourite style, and many more factors that will all be talked through with you. What a fabulous idea!

Because the tools and techniques at Vinci Clinics are top class and up to date, we can offer more than others can. That means you come away feeling great about yourself and your choices. You are unique, one of a kind, and special. So it’s about time your hair reflected that.


Vinci Hair Clinic Raising Awareness of Scalp Micro Pigmentation across Scotland

Vinci Scalp Pigmentation Sponsorship - Raising SMP Awareness

Vinci Hair Clinic Scotland were recently were approached by A Scottish Subaru Team with an opportunity to sponsor their team, and in the process, raise awareness of the revolutionary baldness treatment; Scalp Micro Pigmentation.

Vinci Hair Clinic Raising Awareness of Scalp Micro Pigmentation across Scotland

James McEleny, the driver and owner of his Subaru team, tells us about the first day of competition with the Vinci Branding on his Subaru: "We started the day 4 points behind the class leader, not an impossible task, but after the first warm up session (no points available) I noted that the class leader was posting some impressive lap times."

"We were all running in reverse direction, which does not suit the set up of our car, so we were at a slight disadvantage from the outset. Our car was running well though, no problems at all."

"The qualifying was run over 2 sessions of 4 laps each. One car released on track at 20 second intervals.  I pushed the car as hard as I dare, driving the car on the edge of its ability, sometimes putting a wheel or two onto the grass or gravel. After qualifying, we finished just one point behind the class leader, having posted very good lap times. Just 4 hundreds of a second off my Personal Best time for normal clockwise direction."

The excitement then built for "The Final" one lap shoot out, with the Best time taking the Championship.

"It was a very intense tune for me made worse as I was held on the start line for 7 minutes as the track was being cleared of Debris. I could hear the commentator racking up the pressure informing all the spectators, this would be the most important lap of my year"

"Released onto the track, and with Knockhill's biggest audience figures since the British Touring Cars, every corner had to be taken with maximum attack, control and precision. Not easy in a 300 plus horse power Subaru. The lap was perfection, rising to the challenge in style and posting one of my fastest times of the day, it was enough to secure the Championship."

"It later transpired the class leader had exceeded track limits and his time was disqualified, this wouldn't have effected the outcome in any case as my lap time was enough regardless."

Vinci Hair Clinic is proud to sponsor the team throughout the remainder of the 2015 season and into 2016.

Client Testimonial - Mohammed

Scalp Micro Pigmentation Testimonial - Mohammad

Mohammed started to suffer from a receding hairline from quite a young age, in his mid twenties. It really affected his confidence as a person and he desired a younger look. “It was a big issue for me. I was feel less confident, and I hated going out and socialising. Wearing a hat ended up being the only way I would go out, it was a difficult time for me.”

He discovered Vinci Hair Clinic and specifically the SMP procedure, where individual pigments are placed into the epidermis level of the skin to create a redefined hairline and to also cover his baldness. “I found Vinci Hair Clinic online, they gave me a very good option, which was the SMP. As you can from the result here, the full head is covered. I had three different sessions and a further touch up session to really give me the desired result. “

Will Scalp Micropigmentation Blend In With My Existing Hair Successfully?

“The staff were really helpful, always very nice to me and answered any questions I had so yes, I am really happy.”

The result Mohammed achieved has really helped him to redefine how he looks, with a sympathetic hairline that is representative of his current age, and with a completely undetectable result, Mohammed has the confidence to socialise and have fun without worrying about his baldness.

“The procedure has done me the world of good. I looks like there is now here there, but there is not; its pigment. The SMP was done over three sessions, where the first session drew in the desired hair line I wanted.”

The treatment added density, and the only maintenance Mohammed has to do is shave his head ever 2-3 days. “It works really good. I keeps the contrast from the pigment to my hair very precise so nobody can notice the difference between my hair and the pigmentation.

With a redesigned hairline and a full head of hair look, Mohammed is a very satisfied client:

“I’m really happy now I have had the treatment done, I can go out very happily now knowing I look great.”
