Tricopigmentation is a technological evolution of aesthetic and paramedical micropigmentation which allows to inoculate into the superficial layer of the Dermis a specific pigment capable of altering appearance by recreating the effect of a thicker scalp. A technique which allows customers to mask baldness (hair loss) in the most suitable way depending on the customer’s initial situation. By performing this type of treatment, the shaved effect is achieved using a microscopic deposit of pigment, in the shape of dots. The aim is to obtain a natural result.
The duration of the treatment and the number of sessionsdepend on the characteristics of the patient and of the areas that need to be treated. Since Tricopigmentation is a re-absorbable treatment, the practitioner will evaluate, together with the customer, the number of sessions for annual maintenance (touch-ups are usually performed once or twice a year) to always ensure the best result.
