DETAILED QUESTIONS

What is the size of the needle which inserts the scalp and what is the pain level?

We use a combination of different size needles in different areas of the scalp. By using different size needles, we are better able to replicate the exact size and shape of that hair follicle in that area of the scalp. The pain level for most client is around a 3 out of a 10.

Explain what happens when the pigmentation needle machine inserts the scalp?

Our follicle shaped needle implants into the epidermis, never reaching the dermis. The skin is made of up a matrix of cross fibers that have Lumen within the cells. The lumens allow the ink to deposit into the dermis and stay consistent in size and shape.

Explain in detail how the pigment is injected?

The ink is injected using a rotary machine, which any other permanent makeup machine uses. The difference is the stroke in which we lay the ink and the depth that we implant the ink. We can implant ink on the top layer of skin because we are injecting more ink. Excess ink will fade away while the rest will stay. This leaves behind a small follicle shaped impression that won't change in size due to the face that it is siting on the dermis. The epidermis is has blood flow and overtime it spreads and will become a shade and blend into each other. This is why you see a lot of men and women who end up having a shade on their head 1-2 years later.

What will make my procedure fade?

The answer to this questions lies in the individual makeup of the person. The sun will have a very big impact on the life of the procedure and your individual dermal collagen micro structure as well. Your genetic code has a lot to do with this as well, such as oils in your tissues and the chemical bonds in your skin tissues. The will break down these bonds, long term sunlight radiation breaks down ink and and the ink will dissolve into the skin. This could be the difference between your procedure lasting 10 years and due to the sun, it only lasting 2 years. This is why we strong suggest buying my anchor guarantee which I have used as a lotion for my head daily and has kept my procedure unscathed in the sunlight. It is also the rejuvenation of your skin, your cycle of scabbing, how long it takes your tissues to heal themselves and much more. You have to understand that your body sees my ink as a foreign object and naturally wants to reject it. This is why we deposit more than other companies using a modified machine. The collagen micro structure acts different for each person, either fading away faster or slower 7 days after the first procedure. This is why we require 2-3 procedures to ensure full coverage due to different variables.

What is the nearest date that you are available for face-to-face consultation?

Consultations are booked based on availability and location of the client. For those who are not in close proximity, a Phone Consultation may be provided. Phone consultations are a great way to have your questions answered by our knowledgeable team members while in the comfort of your own home.

If things go well, how soon after the consultation can the procedure be done?

Consultations can often lead to booking procedures. These appointments are based on the availability of technicians at each site. We strive to accommodate our clients and can usually schedule procedures within a week of your initial consultation.

How many days am I required to wait in-between multiple sessions?

Every procedure package comes with a standard 2 sessions. We allow this secondary procedure to ensure optimal results while allowing room for small adjustments to the hairline and color after the product has had time to cure down. The second "Final Touches" session is scheduled by the client within the first year of their initial procedure and advise our clients to wait at least one week after the completion of their initial service to schedule.

What is the width measurement of the simulated hair follicles?

In order to protect what makes Scalp Aesthetics so different from our competitors we do not release the specific measurements of our needles, however, we can guarantee that we have taken our time in perfecting the tools of our trade and as a result every client can walk away knowing that this was something specially crafted to provide the very best look possible!

We have a range of prices that start at $1,200 for a scar and up to $5,500 for an individual who has Alopecia with no hair at all. Most of our clients have a horseshoe pattern and need a hairline, top, sides and blending. These jobs usually range between $3-4,000.00 and are based on the specific needs of the client.

We can provide before and after images to clients but keeping up to date with our social media sites are often the best places to find all of our updated information such as instagram and facebook.

Will I be able to do a 0 or 1 buzz, or will I need to blade shave daily to keep things realistic?

The two most popular length suggestions are a 0 or 1 guard but we do often have clients who prefer shave or foil shave their scalp. This is a personal preference and also based on the speed at which your hair grows.

I want my hair all to look uniform when it is razor shaved. Will I need my entire head done with smp to achieve this look?

The look that we create for you is one that will be blended into the hair that you already have. During the process of photo submission we will advise the length that should be kept in order to achieve the best look possible and we always ask that when you arrive for your treatment it is in this suggested length.
