scalp Micropigmentation: How long does it last?
Lasting Scalp Micropigmentation Treatment in Toronto, ON
One reason why scalp micropigmentation is popular is because it provides long-lasting results. However, after a year or two, your scalp micropigmentation may require a touchup in order to keep looking as good as you’d prefer. Here’s what you should know about how long you can expect your scalp micropigmentation treatment to last.
How long does scalp micropigmentation last?
Capilia Freedom has had clients live with great-looking scalp micropigmentation for several years. Following our detailed post-care instructions will help ensure your scalp scalp micropigmentation lasts for as long as possible. But every person is different, with different lifestyles and immune system reactions, which means we can’t guarantee your scalp micropigmentation will look good for a specific number of years. On average, the treatment lasts between four and six years. After a year or two, you may notice your scalp micropigmentation has begun to lighten in color. Please note that scalp micropigmentation is not like a tattoo that may change colors as the years go by—the only thing you must watch out for is a fading of color, which is a perfectly natural occurrence.
What can you do if you notice your scalp micropigmentation lightening in color?
If your scalp micropigmentation has started to lighten in color, it’s easy for Capilia Freedom to address this by having you come in for a touchup with one of our skilled technicians. However, it’s not necessary for you to rush in as soon as you notice your scalp micropigmentation looks lighter—scheduling a touchup also depends on your personal preferences and lifestyle. We do recommend you come see us whenever you’d like a touchup. We keep excellent records, so we’ll have noted how you responded during your initial treatment sessions. And in one visit, we’ll have your scalp micropigmentation set to keep you happy for the next few years.
What steps you can you take to extend the life of your scalp micropigmentation?
Excessive exposure to the elements can negatively impact your scalp micropigmentation. So, to help your scalp micropigmentation last, take steps to minimize the amount of sun, wind, and chemicals you’re exposed to. For example, if you’re planning to be outside playing golf all day, it’s smart to wear a hat or to apply a sunscreen with an SPF rating of 30 or higher. If you regularly swim in a chlorinated pool, make sure to rinse off your scalp as soon as possible after finishing your laps. Capilia Freedom has found that using a quality moisturizer every day is another great way to help your scalp micropigmentation last. Remember, the better care you take of your scalp micropigmentation, the more years you’ll get to enjoy it before having to come in for a touchup.
