Medical tattoo, or trichopigmentation
Permanent cosmetic make-up or medical tattoo, also called medical trichopigmentation, is a method that effectively covers the hair loss at the initial stage of alopecia for both men and women; to cover the point scars in the scalp zone after the donor material is taken in an fue-way, scars that can remain due to fut operations, mechanical injuries, burns and some skin diseases. Medical tattoo can visually imitate short or shaved natural hair with the help of coloring pigments, which are applied with special needles in problem areas.
In the clinic Volosy.ru this procedure is done at the highest level: qualitatively, aesthetically flawless, and of course, painless. Given that trichopigmentation is by far the most economical way, thanks to which the problems associated with postoperative and other scars are dealt with the least cost, its effectiveness does not cause doubts in a number of cases. For example, when in the process of transplantation the FUE method has reached the limit of the potential of the donor zone, and for an optimal result, say, on the front line of hair growth or in the crown region, additional grafts from the occiput are needed. Combined with tattooing, this is now absolutely possible, since the drawn hairs made with the finest needles using perfectly matched color pigments can completely cover the rarefied area, so that the visual effect resulting from such a procedure will be excellent! And in fact, the quality of the picture from the clinic Volosy.ru, imitating in place of the point scars of the hairs, is so high that it is possible to distinguish them from the natural ones if possible, only from the closest distance.
Given that there are a number of diseases that result in alopecia, and hair transplantation in such patients may be contraindicated, trichopigmentation remains the only effective method to hide the cosmetic problem of hair loss. Among such skin diseases - total and alopecia areata; relapsing undermining folliculitis, lichen ending with Brock's pseudo-pelvis.
Pavel Pachin, a specialist in cosmetic tattoo at the Volosy.ru clinic, also uses patients who, due to a lack of hair for transplantation, shave their heads "at zero" and yet decided to close the scalp area susceptible to alopecia with a medical tattoo. The optimal solution: the visual effect is really ideal.
Patients who choose the trichopigmentation procedure usually wear short hairstyles, especially popular in recent years. There is nothing surprising in this, because with a significant degree of baldness, it is in combination with the haircut "to the maximum" that the cosmetic tattoo made at the clinic Volosy.ru looks so harmonious and natural that it does not stand out against the thinning hair, completely fulfilling the main function - masking. Photo 14.2 However, even if the patient's hair is long and the thin linear scar left by the FUT-method after the sampling is slightly shining or not visible, but still creates some psychological discomfort, cosmetic tattooing will change the skin tone qualitatively, so that there will not be a scar left from the scar no visible trace.
Unlike operations on hair transplantation, a medical tattoo does not need special postprocedural care, and importantly, the prices for it are much lower (See "Pricing"). The procedure on average lasts several hours, sometimes it is divided into stages, if, for example, the scar is significant in size or structurally problematic, and therefore requires the maximum possible drawing, but in any case, first a small area of tissue damaged by the scar fixation of pigment, as well as density of drawing.
Tattooing at the clinic Volosy.ru is carried out with the help of a professional apparatus for the production of FRG and the finest needles. Medical pigment is used only of the highest quality, it does not spread out and does not change color over time, dissolves usually within a year - two years or even longer, if introduced into scar tissue.
It heals within a month after the procedure, in some cases, there may be a need for partial correction if the pattern has not taken root or needs additional fixation.
Contraindications for the procedure of trichopigmentation are: eczema, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, pigment spots, drug allergy to anesthetics, exacerbations of skin diseases, such as, for example, neurodermatitis.
