Scalp Micropigmentation (Hair Tattoo)
Newport Beach, CA
While surgical hair restoration is an excellent option for some patients, it’s not ideal for everyone. Some patients don’t feel ready for surgery and would prefer a non-invasive procedure. Scalp micropigmentation is an excellent choice for those seeking a non-surgical solution to improve the appearance of thinning hair.
This innovative procedure helps create the appearance of natural hair for men and women who are noticing visible scalp due to hair loss. It can also restore shape to a hairline that has receded and help conceal alopecia or scars on the scalp.
At Varona Hair Restoration, scalp micropigmentation is performed with the utmost precision and artistry, allowing you to achieve natural-looking results that last.

What is Scalp Micropigmentation?
Scalp micropigmentation sometimes referred to as a hair tattoo) can replicate the appearance of hair by embedding pigment into the scalp. The needles used for this procedure are much more delicate than those used for a traditional tattoo, so the results are exact and realistic. Before treatment, the scalp is anesthetized. Thousands of dots or brush strokes are then applied to blend with the patient’s natural hair and growth pattern. This step is completely customized to the patient’s preferences.
When treating male patients, the aesthetic specialist will typically make dot-like impressions to create the appearance of a full head of shaved hair. Other techniques include adding brush strokes to fill in a thinning hairline. This procedure can also be used to reduce the appearance of visible scalp for women who are experiencing hair loss.
The entire procedure takes a few hours to perform, and patients can immediately resume their regular daily activities after.

Because the pigment fades over time, you can expect your results to last for about three years. Most patients come back for touch-up sessions every few years.
Results can also be affected by lifestyle factors. For example, people who are frequently outdoors without sun protection may notice early fading. Frequent heavy sweating of the head can also cause the pigments to fade faster.
There is no real downtime after a hair tattoo. It’s common for patients to experience mild redness and sensitivity, but these temporary symptoms quickly resolve on their own. Patients can immediately resume their regular activities after the procedure.
