What is the difference between a head tattoo and micropigmentation?
While the process is similar there are several significant differences, starting with quality of equipment. The needles used for micropigmentation are very high quality and smaller than typical tattoo needles. They are used to carefully deliver the pigment into the dermis layer of the skin. Having the pigment inserted into this layer prevents the ink from spreading past the intended area. The high-quality pigment also insures the color does not change after application like a standard tattoo does.
Will the pigment used fade? Or change color?
There is no risk of the pigment changing to colors like blue or green. Looking at the process long term, additional treatment may be needed in 5-6 years as light fading may occur.
Is the treatment obvious?
Micropigmentation is carefully done to mimic real hair follicles. The end result is extremely realistic.
Is it Painful?
The micropigmentation process uses a very small needle, smaller than a traditional needle, which minimizes pain. The pain is rated low, a 1-2 on a 1-10 scale. Everyone has a different threshold for pain and may experience the procedure differently. Here at Micro Artistics, we take the highest precautions to ensure our client’s comfort.
