Everyone patient that comes to Vinci’s Micro Scalp Pigmentation (MSP) clinics is different, and each MSP case is evaluated by our experienced MSP consultants on its own merits, and it is usually the case that to achieve the best, long lasting results micro scalp pigmentation needs to be built up over multiple sessions. These can range from three sessions to five or six.
Because the medical grade pigment that Vinci uses, each scalp will respond differently depending on the skin quality and type, even different areas of the scalp can respond differently. Starting with designing the new hair line and then work back over the top of the scalp to the crown or vertex in the first session.
The time that is taken between the first and second session can differ for each patient too. The length of time can be from ten to fourteen days to maybe one month; dependent on how long it takes for the pigment and skin to settle.
By allowing the pigment to settle properly, and also by letting the skin relax will help on the correct pigment tone to use in the second session to build up the look of density. This ensures that the pigment correctly takes to the skin.
It is completely normal for the pigment to slightly fade after the initial session. The second session will build on the first session, by adding to the tone of the pigmentation, and also adjusts the contrast according to the fading over the scalp.
There is also the possibly to make adjustments to the hair line design if required. For the majority, a third session is sufficient to blend seamlessly with the surrounding natural hair.
There are exceptions to this, if the tone takes longer to settle due to the skin quality this could make the patient require further sessions to increase the look of density on the scalp. Also alternative hair loss conditions to male pattern baldness can affect the number of sessions, and more specifically the treating scarring generally caused by a hair transplant can require further touch-ups.
The hair loss condition alopecia areata leaves patches of hair loss around the head, and the skin quality can alter greatly. Scarring changes the integrity of the skin. These conditions can cause irregular fading of the tone and require more sessions to ensure an even blend and look of density is achieved.
With the correct application of MSP it is possible to achieve excellent, undetectable results. Even on close inspection the treatment can accurately simulate the look of shaved hair.
