Very safe procedure

Scalp Micropigmentation is a very safe procedure. With Scalp Micro Pigmentation treatment, pigment is used on the scalp to create the appearance of real hair follicles recreating hairlines, adding the appearance of density to thinning areas and covering unsightly scars.

You might also want to consider a Hair transplant to add density and attack hair loss adding PRP or medication.

PRP consists on getting some of your blood and putting it in a machine that will separate the different ingredients that are in the blood. From those ingredients we take the growth factors and inject them in your scalp. These growth factors will start working in your follicles enhancing your hair and reducing (and even stopping) the rate of your hair loss.Best of lucks and I hope you find this useful.
