Why Organic Scalp Pigmentation
Organic Scalp Pigmentation (OSP) is a process when your scalp is tattooed with ink to give the illusion of stubble hair. This is a method sometimes preferred by bald men who are seeking an alternative to hair transplant surgery. When performed correctly, this can be a great procedure to give the appearance of small stubble hair on bald areas of the scalp where hair no longer grows. There are some clinics that perform this procedure but choose carefully because, just like a hair transplant, if performed by the wrong hands, you can be left with disappointing results. The cost of Scalp Pigmentation varies depending on where the procedure is performed. You might receive a price quotation anywhere from $500 to $3500, and in some cases may need more than one session to achieve your desired look. Keep in mind that this is a permanent cosmetic tattoo and is an important decision that should be made with utmost caution. There are cases where hair transplant patients have received disappointing results and used scalp micro pigmentation procedure to improve the appearance of a hair transplant, adding the illusion of thicker hair or camouflaging the appearance of an unacceptable scar. When OSP is performed on a hair transplant patient, the results tend to differ on the donor and recipient areas of the scalp due to the scarred skin tissue. Some people prefer this method of hair restoration over hair transplants because, even though it’s permanent like a hair transplant, there’s no surgery involved.
OSP results are typically better on an unscarred scalp. OSP is a permanent ‘concealer’ medically tattooed on the scalp with a special organic US-patented formula that is designed for every skin type. Our state of the art scalp pigmentation machine, designed for epidermal penetration with a very fine needle to mimic hair look, paired with an Eraser designed to remove unwanted pigments, makes Organic Scalp Pigmentation to be the best in the market today. With organic pigments, as an alternative to the topical daily applications of powders, fibers and other cosmetic concealers, i.e. Toppik or cobbikke, OSP eliminates the hassle of frequent applications, messy transfer of product onto clothing, sheets or pillow cases, and the anxiety of being in close contact with people.
OSP can be used for a variety of scalp conditions which includes: genetic androgenic alopecia (AGA) otherwise known as male pattern balding (MPB), scarring alopecias from a variety of autoimmune diseases of the scalp (e.g. alopecia areata, alopecia totalis), and scarring from neurosurgical procedures or burns. It is also used to manage the unnatural appearance that is associated with outdated hair transplant procedures. Organic Scalp Pigmentation is the solution for baldness. Also, please consider future worries such as ink color fading off your scalp, and the possibility of your hair changing color which can result in an unnatural look and will require additional sessions to restore your scalp back to acceptable results. When undergoing a procedure that has permanent results there may be some unwanted emotional distress you may have to deal with. This kind of stress can affect your quality of life and should always be considered before an OSP procedure. The good news is that the procedure lasts for 3-5 years and after which, you might need a touch up.
