ABOUT MICROART™ SCALP SHADING
Using a 3D shading and feathering technique, MicroArt semi-permanent makeup is applied to the hair loss area of the scalp. This creates the illusion of real hair without the painful surgery. Any area of the scalp with hair loss can be shaded, from the crown to the hairline. MicroArt is perfect for men and women, all styles and types of hair. Colors are customized to match your hair color, so it is virtually blended with the existing hair to create a full, natural look.
BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS
HOW DOES MICROART™ ELIMINATE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF PERMANENT MAKEUP AND TATTOOING?
MicroArt is a proprietary technology developed by acclaimed Hollywood entrepreneur and former special effects makeup expert Tanya York — with the help of a team of mechanical engineers and cosmetic biochemists.
The goal was to develop a makeup procedure that would look more natural than any form of permanent or semi-permanent makeup and eliminate all side effects. Side effects of other forms of permanent makeup range from short-term such as downtime, scabbing, bruising and heavy bleeding to the long-term side effects such as scarring, inks that change colors on the skin and the shape of the makeup that changes over time due to the skin’s aging process.
MicroArt has eliminated all such side effects through:
- Equipment: Specialized equipment developed by MicroArt for unrivaled precision.
- Clinics: MicroArt procedures are performed in a certified, professional medical office passing regular, stringent County Health Department inspections.
- Products: Special, natural pigments developed that will not change color and are hypoallergenic (safe for your skin).
- Technique: A technique developed over the years to ensure the ideal, custom shape and color is provided to each client
- Technicians: All technicians are personally trained for months, and certified, by Master Micro Artist Tanya York. MicroArt Technicians are not licensed to perform services on Ms. York’s clients until their work is indistinguishable from hers.
There are no other forms of permanent cosmetics like it.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT SCALP SHADING
How many sessions do I need?
Initially, 4 sessions 2 weeks apart are needed for each area of the scalp. During each session, more pigment is added to the scalp in thin layers gradually changing the color of the skin and matching it to your natural hair texture and color. You see results after each session. During a 1-hour session, a pigment can be added to about a 6-inch circle of the scalp although each area of the scalp is different in terms of sensitivity and how fast our technicians can apply pigment. Each Scalp Shading client is unique, so the number of sessions needed to obtain the desired results will vary based on each client’s individual situation.
What can I expect after each session?
Before each session is sure to arrive with no products or topical treatments in your hair. After each session, you will have to go home and wash your hair, as it will be messy from the procedure. You will see the results right away as the pigment settles into the skin. After each session the pigment will appear darker then over the next 2 weeks, it lightens up in time for your next session where we add more pigment. After each session, the color fades less. We will give you an aftercare kit that should be used 2 times per day for 5 days after each session. This will keep the scalp sanitized and moisturized. The results are amazing!
How is MicroArt™ Scalp Shading applied?
MicroArt semi-permanent makeup is non-surgical; the hair loss application takes about an hour per session, and there is no downtime. MicroArt™ clients fully participate in choosing their desired look, shape, and colors.

THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MICROART & PERMANENT MAKEUP
Permanent makeup is applied using heavy gauge needles or a blade to penetrate deep into the skin causing bleeding, bruising, scabbing, scarring and downtime. Permanent makeup uses various forms of tattoo inks that are toxic to the body; its colors are harsh and change over time. So people can end up with blue or orange inks in the skin. Another issue with permanent makeup is that as our skin ages and start to sag the ink end up in the wrong place so it actually accentuates the signs of aging.
Permanent makeup artists’ training is only a few days. Their minimal training and the equipment & products used all contribute to the harsh look associated with permanent makeup and microblading. The best way to fix is with MicroArt.
MicroArt Semi Permanent makeup, on the other hand, has the most natural results. There is NO downtime, NO bruising, NO scabbing, NO scarring. Because MicroArt technology uses an acupuncture needle as thin as a human hair that vibrates on the dermal layer of the skin 80 to 100 times per second, the results are precise. Colors are custom blended with non-toxic mineral-based pigments. The design is customized to fit each patient’s look and desires by our Artist. It takes about 1 year to train a Micro-Artist to perform the procedure. The results are amazing.
