A hair tattoo Chicago, also called scalp micropigmentation. This process is a permanent yet cost-effective hair loss treatment Chicago. With scalp micropigmentation, little amounts of pigment are put into both of the top layers of your dermis, which is the overall top layer of your skin; to look like growing hair follicles. Hair tattooing’s primary purpose is to fill bald spots and make your hair appear to be fuller and thicker.
Will A Hair Tattoo Harm My Hair Follicles?
Questioning the risks of scalp hair micropigmentation Chicago is totally understandable. This process starts with inserting a needle and pigment next to or above your hair follicles. Hair will grow just as before the hair micropigmentation Chicago treatment started.
A good way to picture the process is to think of hair follicles as a vase and the hair sticking out as a flower. Picture the vase as being 4mm deep. During your scalp micropigmentation Chicago treatment ink is inserted 2mm deep which is half the follicle depth. Microneedles never reach the follicle and are harmless so they don’t affect hair growth in the future.
A common question is will the ink interfere with my hair growth? The pigments they use for scalp hair micropigmentation Chicago are not the same as tattoo ink. However, tattoo ink does not slow hair growth either. In some cases tattooed men that have thicker body hair will choose to shave or remove it to show off their tattoos. You get a natural look with hair tattoo pigments that are similar to short hairs of a tight buzz-cut.
What if My Hair Growth Slows after a Hair Tattoo?
Naturally hair growth goes in cycles from slow to fast. If you have received a hair lost treatment Chicago and notice slower growth, it’s an issue not related to the treatment. This is just a regular side effect of hair-growth cycles.
On average people have about 100,000 hair follicles on their head and more throughout their body. There are three phases in which hair grows out of these:
Anagen Phase. This phase is often referred to as the growth phase. This involves hair growing from the root. This phase usually lasts from three to seven years.
Catagen Phase. This is known as the transition phase. Growth slows down during this period as follicles start to shrink. This phase usually lasts between two and four months.
Telogen Phase. This is called the resting or regenerating phase. This is when the hair falls out so new hair can form in those same follicles. This phase lasts for about four months on average.
None of these phases tend to all happen at once. Losing 50 to 100 stands daily is normal especially when comparing this to the 100,000 follicles you have.
