FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT SCALP SHADING
How many sessions do I need?
Initially, 4 sessions 4 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?
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. Colors are customized specifically for each client, so every MicroArt application is unique to the client’s desires. The treatment involves the gentle placement of mineral-based pigments onto the outer dermal layer of the scalp.
