Recently called the ‘ World’s fastest growing solution to hair loss ’ scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a form of tattooing hair follicle simulations into the scalp. The technique entered the UK market place in 2002 and has since vastly improved to a point that the hair follicle are virtually indistinguishable from the natural human hair follicle. One of the leading factors in the improvement of the scalp micro pigmentation technique has been the introduction of the Pigmentalia ( Tricopigmentation ) solution to hair tattooing.
Pigmentalia is the process of adding pigment to a person’s head that can replicate a real head of shaves hair or add densification to someone who’s hair is thinning, who are suffering from hair loss or are balding in particular areas.
Pigmentalia ( Tricopigmentation ) was developed in Italy by Malina Lardy. Malina had seen the growth in the art of scalp tattooing, scalp pigmentation / SMP as a solution to clients suffering from hair loss, having trialled serval methods herself she was unable to find any form of existing system that utilised the very fine needles necessary to give a realistic hair follicle representation, a system that used a colour system that could match the clients natural hair colour, or a method that over the years would not see the inks bleeding/blurring into the scalp whilst allowing future hairline revisions to match the clients age as they became older. Having historically previously already established her own internationally recognised micropigmentation business and training school ‘Golden Eye’, Malina decided to attempt to resolve the issues she believed was giving micro scalp pigmentation a bad name whilst also introducing a system that would be a true alternative to hair transplant, help clients with hair loss , could give clients their confidence back whilst fixing the failing of the traditional hair tattoo business.
After many attempts Malina eventually developed ‘Pigmentalia (Tricopigmantion) ’ a scalp micropigmentation system that gave 100% realistic hair follicle representation, hair follicle that had a density and density pattern that looked entirely natural, were matched to the clients natural hair colouring whilst meeting the ageing demands of the client. Having only historically found scalp pigmentation systems that utilised traditional tattoo guns, were completely reliant on the dexterity of the technicians hand and which needles were too large to give a realistic hair follicle look, Malina concluded the only path forward would be to produce specialised equipment, needles and pigments in order to resolve the challenges the historic scalp micropigmentation industry had presented her. Through Malina’s pure determination and integrity to only offer clients a micro pigmentation system that truly met all her clients desires and wants ‘Pigmentalia’ was born.
Pigmentalia (also known as Tricopigmentation ) is the world’s only form of scalp micrpigmentation that has uniquely designed digital electronic micropigmentation machines that allow the needles to be set at a constant skin depth (not varied as the traditional tattoo guns), has the finest needles available in the market, has a needle direction system that manages natural hair density perfectly and has unique designed pigments that can be matched to the clients natural hair colour whilst never changing colour, bleeding or blurring.
The human head consists of millions of hair follicles and it is therefore necessary that a scalp micropigmentation method ensures that the amount of pigmented dots that are added to the scalp have the highest density necessary to match the natural density of the client (density becomes less intense as we age) whilst ensuring this density is inserted in a very natural manner. This is why the Pigmentalia system uses the finest, bespoke produced, needles and a gradient system that simply does not rely on the hand dexterity of the technician yet visually aids them to create entirely natural hairlines that will fade to the edges whist also being highly concentrated to the main area of the scalp. Even the incredibly expensive follicle (hair by hair) hair transplants can’t match the natural density system ‘Pigmentalia’ has to offer and it is capable of resolving the vast majority of hair loss ailments .
Many traditional scalp micropigmentation treatments and businesses will look to complete a client treatment in one siting or one day of treatment. With the pigmentalia approach the treatments require 2-3 sittings, this allows the technician in conjunction with the Pigmentalia density program to create a truly 100% natural appearance. In the initial sitting the technician will add a light density of follicle, filling the required area. On the 2nd sitting the technician is then more able to see a densification level that ‘sits best’ with the clients requirements and add further densification to suit. The third sitting is required to ensure 100% perfection of the process and is carried out 30 days after the initial treatment. This allow for time for the pigments to settle into the scalp after which some touch-up may be required to fill in the odd missing follicle if necessary. Some clients may prefer the convenience of only one sitting yet the ‘Pigmentalia’ system is more about giving the client that perfectly desired look for years to come over and above a quick fix method.
Possibly the most important aspect of pigmentalia is its ability to adapt with the client as they age. Traditional and existing scalp pigmentation / hair loss methods offered by companies such as Scalp Aesthetics, Skalp, His Hair, Vinci etc will actually tattoo hair pigment down into the dermis layer of the skin. This is primarily because they use traditional tattoo guns that even though may have smaller needles in some cases cannot be regulated to ensure a consistency of depth. Pigment that enters the dermis layer of the skin becomes permanent as with any traditional tattoo. We all know that with permanent tattoos that over time they do not stay as sharp and as crisp as when they were initially applied. Malinarecognised that due to the relatively young age of tattooed hair /scalp micropigmentation industrythat the consequences of the bleed/blurring effects had not yet been experiences to a high degree (the older the tattoo becomes that increased appearance of the bleed/blur effect) nor had the majority of clients treated in the traditional methods reached an age where they would want their tattoo hairline / hair style changes. This said however Malia could clearly see these areas would become grave issues with clients in years to come and consequently offering a permanent hairline tattoo method was not in the best interests of the client or the service overall. After all no one wants to be known as a ‘quick buck’ merchant that gives false expectations to their clients only to see that client have issues in years to come. Pigmentalia therefore only enters pigment into the epidermis layer of the skin, making that treatment semi permanent. In its semi permanent nature it lasts 12-18 months, yet with regular ‘top ups’ can last for as many years as the client requires. With the pigments in the epidermis layer of the skin then they do not bleed or blur and over time if desired the skin will naturally return to a clean unpigmented state. Through the consultation period in which a client is choosing their hair line the very vast majority of clients will want a hairline that matches their age, with traditional tattooed hairlines this is all well and good at first, yet when the client ages another 10-20 years they are left permanently with a hairline that now looks very unnatural and is not consistent with their real age. Pigmentalia is all about giving the clients a more youthful, healthier hair representation, not unrealistic, unnatural results. Therefore with Pigmentalia the pigments can be allowed to fade back as the person ages and new more age specific hairlines can then be re-introduced, after all who wants a twenty year olds hairline at the age of fifty/Sixty (you may however want a more realistic and youthful hairline of a 40 year old). The same applies to people with diffuse thinning / thin hair, yes obviously no one will want a very thin head of hair yet as density diminishes as we age then the hair follicle density should adapt also. Take for example a person with a receding hairline to the front of their scalp at the age of thirty, this person had densification to this area with the traditional tattooed method of scalp micropigmentation / hair tattoo, however as they age their hairline recedes further leaving a permanent heavily densified area to the front of the head. With pigmentalia this area should fade back in line with the natural receding of the hair line and the densification then altered to match the natural hairline position. Alternatively should the client choose to change to a ‘close shaved head or hair’ appearance then the hairline can be brought forward again and the hair follicle density altered to match their age. Pigmentalia (Tricopigmentation) can sometimes be call the temporary version of Scalp Micropigmentation, however the true nature of the treatment is that it is the most adaptable, versatile and future proof method available in the market place today.
