Is a revolutionary semi-permanent micro-pigmenting technique that offers an alternative option for men suffering from hair loss who are not appropriate candidates for hair transplant surgery or who do not want it. HPT® involves the use of a digitally controlled needle which applies medical grade hypoallergenic colour pigment into the scalp. As well as male pattern hair loss, HPT® can create the illusion of hair for patients suffering from a host of scalp conditions including scarring alopecia’s, alopecia areata, totalis and universalis, as well as hair loss due to injuries and burns or disguising surgery scars.
HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation can create the illusion of either denser looking hair, creating a hairline or even full head coverage ‘shaven look’ which previously may have been unachievable with other hair loss solutions. The hairline is the most important part of your scalp micro-pigmentation treatment, as this is the focal point, and will determine the overall look. If not done correctly the treatment will look unnatural and fake. Our experienced technician will work with you to design, mark, measure and approve each hairline before any pigment is implanted. Some patients may wish for a very defined hairline, but we often advise them to try a more natural look that takes into account age-appropriateness and ethnicity.
HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation is a cost effective hair loss solution to give you the ‘coverage’ you want, whilst deciding which transplant surgery is right for you. HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation can also enhance any successful transplant surgery, either Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) of Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), by creating the illusion of thicker ‘hair’ at root level and infilling between transplanted grafts.
HAIR ink. work with a number of leading hair transplantation clinics in both the UK and Europe and an increasing number of our HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation procedures are referrals from surgeons where the patient did not have enough donor hair for surgery or required additional density to improve the overall result of their transplant.
HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation has been effectively used on a number of patients to camouflage scarring; either strip scarring, hole punch or plug marks left after hair transplant surgery. The pigment is implanted into the scar tissue, matching the hair follicles and hair surrounding it and depending on the type of scar that needs camouflaging the pigment will be blended into the hair surrounding the scar for a more natural look. Scar tissue is very different in composition to that of healthy skin and can be unpredictable in how it reacts to scalp micro-pigmentation treatment and retention of the implanted pigment. HPT® is only appropriate for the treatment of scars more than a year old which have fully healed.
