Micropigmentation

Our Birmingham, Alabama, hair restoration practice is the only one in the U.S. certified to perform a highly specialized technique called hair follicle simulation tattoo. This pigment-depositing treatment can help men with extensive hair loss who shave their heads, women with thin or barely visible eyebrows, and people with scars in hair-bearing areas.

What Is Micropigmentation?

Micropigmentation for hair loss—also called scalp micropigmentation—is a nonsurgical treatment that uses a tiny, fine needle to embed pigment into the skin to create the illusion of hair follicles or eyebrows. Cosmetic tattooing, as it’s also known, can hide unsightly scars when performed by highly trained and experienced practitioners such as those at T3 Hair Preservation.

Scalp Micropigmentation

Hair follicle simulation tattoo (SHFST) creates the appearance of a full head of closely shaved hair. Besides being an excellent solution for men who are essentially bald, both men and women who cannot undergo hair replacement procedures can also simulate the appearance of thicker hair.

At T3, we utilize exclusive, high-quality pigments to closely match the patient’s hair color. This allows us to create natural, long-lasting results. Other benefits of micropigmentation include:

  • Creates the appearance of uniform density
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Immediate solution
  • Non-invasive
  • No scarring
  • No downtime

We numb the scalp before the procedure to minimize discomfort.

Credentials You Can Trust

Eyebrow Restoration

At T3, we understand the importance of looking and feeling your best. Natural-looking eyebrows are an essential component of having an aesthetically pleasing face. Any distortion is very noticeable and detracts from one’s overall attractiveness. Through meticulous micropigmentation techniques, we restore and improve eyebrow aesthetics. We create individual hair shafts in the appropriate location and orientation, resulting in long-lasting, natural eyebrows.

Scar Camouflage

Micropigmentation is extremely effective at camouflaging scars. We specialize in concealing the appearance of scars that result from “strip” method hair replacement surgery. The procedure is relatively painless and demonstrates remarkable results quickly. Micropigmentation is ideal for patients seeking a nonsurgical and immediate solution. Scar camouflage can be used along with NeoGraft® scar revision to conceal and greatly diminish the appearance of strip technique scars.
