How is a Hair Tattoo for Alopecia Performed?

When someone gets a hair tattoo for alopecia the process involves tattooing the scalp with thousands of little dots layered on one another to create the appearance of natural-looking hair follicles, and in turn these cosmetic tattoo follicles must be produced in a manner so that, collectively, the overall appearance looks natural and authentic. The ink used is a pigment designed to compliment one’s natural hair color and skin complexion.

How are Eyebrow Tattoos for Alopecia Performed?

Eyebrow tattoos last a long time, but they are not actually permanent as the pigment ink is applied to the area between the epidermis and the dermis meaning it is a semi-permanent tattoo that will require follow-up touch-ups to ensure they don’t fade over time. Eyebrow tattoos are made by using a very small needle that applies a special pigment with fine, little strokes to create the appearance of an individual hair. Only a highly trained medical tattoo artist like Ruth Swissa can create eyebrow tattoos that look natural.

How Long Do Eyebrow Tattoos Last?

Depending on the individual’s skin type and condition, the longevity of eyebrow tattoos can differ from one person to another. However, most eyebrow tattoos for people with alopecia last between six and 12 months. After the skin has cycled through, the pigment ink will rise to the surface or move underneath the skin giving off a lighter appearance. You will need to go in for additional treatments to maintain depth, symmetry, definition and balance of the eyebrows, and most people only need to go in for maintenance treatments once or twice a year.

How Many Treatments Will I Need to Get a Hair Tattoo for Alopecia?

When people with alopecia seek a hair tattoo to camouflage bald spots and / or to define a hairline, treatments are usually done in a minimum of two with one week running in between treatments. This is due to the fact that your skin will naturally reject some of the pigment right after the first treatment. While it is usually the case to see significant results after the first treatment, a complete look normally comes after a second or third treatment. If a third treatment is necessary, this will likely be scheduled to take place one to three months after the second treatment concludes in which final touches will be applied.
