Micropigmentation is a procedure that involves injecting pigment (or color) to the scalp in order to resemble a natural hairline. Micropigmentation is similar to scalp tattooing but is far better in quality. Unlike scalp tattoos, micropigmentation uses high-quality pigments specifically made to resemble the natural look of hair follicles. This results in a more authentic look.
Micropigmentation is a great solution to hair loss. It’s more cost-effective than other forms of hair loss solutions like hair transplant procedures and patients get to experience the results much faster. It can take several months for hair to grow after a hair transplant but you can see the final results of micropigmentation a few days following the procedure.
Because of its effectiveness, many people are interested in micropigmentation. One of the most common questions asked by people interested in the procedure is how much will it cost? The short answer to that question is: it depends. If you do your research, you will end up with an estimate ranging from $1,000 to $6,000 for the procedure. This is a pretty broad range and can leave you confused on what you can expect to pay within this spectrum. The reality is, there are many factors that play a role in the cost of a micropigmentation procedure. To get an idea of what determines the cost, let’s take a quick look at the factors to consider.
- Desired results – One factor that determines the cost of your micropigmentation is the results you want. Individuals who desire a darker pigmentation for a more prominent hairline will need multiple micropigmentation sessions. This means the procedure will be performed multiple times on the scalp, so a darker pigment is delivered. If this is what you desire, you will need multiple sessions that will likely increase the cost of your micropigmentation treatment. Some individuals desire a lighter pigment based on their skin tone or preference. If this applies to you, you may only need one session, which can reduce the cost.
- Quality of procedure – There are a variety of pigments available for micropigmentation. There are also a variety of styles available for you to choose from. Your preference on the quality, color, and style of micropigmentation will factor into the cost of your procedure. This means, if you want the best possible pigment for a high-quality, natural look or a hairline style that is detailed and natural-looking, your cost may go up. A good rule of thumb is to never go for a cheap pigment or procedure because, at the end of the day, you will get what you pay for. A low-quality pigment will likely result in low-quality results that do not look authentic and do not meet your expectations. One of the best micropigmentation procedures is called a 3D scalp micropigmentation. This procedure uses advanced technologies and pristine pigments for a very natural and authentic look.
- Quality of micropigmentation center or clinic – There are hundreds of micropigmentation providers around the country and they come in all forms of quality, prices, and experience levels. Choosing the right micropigmentation center or clinic for your procedure is something you should not compromise on. This is a semi-permanent procedure that you will live with for several years. If you go with an inexpensive facility, you will have to lower your expectations on the quality of service you will receive. Similarly, if you go for a high-quality facility for the procedure, expect to pay more than you might otherwise. All things considered, you are better off going for a high-quality, tried and tested facility that has a wealth of experience and knowledge performing micropigmentation procedures. Going to an inexpensive clinic just to save money is a risk because you may not get the best service possible and end up with results that you aren’t happy with. A lot of good quality facilities offer payment plans that make procedures more affordable. Be sure to ask about this when you go to consultations.
