Hair micro-pigmentation or trichopigmentation is a non-surgical solution for hair loss.Using a tattoo machine, an organic pigment is introduced into the skin to simulate the hair or beard.
This technique can be used to create a shaved look or to add density.

This treatment is NOT a hair transplant, no hair will grow.
This treatment is ideal for people who are not eligible for a transplant.
People who want a shaved look or want to create extra density on top of existing hair.
Hair pigmentation requires a separate technical knowledge that is NOT comparable to tattooing or permanent makeup.
Unlike conventional tattoos, a different needle, pigment and technique are used. During tattooing, the pigment is always brought into the 2nd skin layer, namely the dermis. This skin layer is divided into the upper papillary layer and the lower reticular layer.
With conventional tattoos, permanent ink is placed in the lower reticular layer, so that your tattoo remains visible at all times.
At HFC, we use an organic pigment that we place in the upper papillary layer. This ensures that we get both a detailed and transparent result, but also a natural one. We only use carbon based pigments to avoid fading.
We usually count on 3-4 treatments. After each treatment, you get closer to the desired result.
Keep in mind that it takes a few weeks for your skin to fully absorb the pigment. We therefore leave 2 to 4 weeks between two treatments before re-pigmentation.
You can shower and wash your hair again.

A treatment consists of at least 3 sessions of approximately 3 to 4 hours per session.
In order to determine the exact price and discuss other aspects of the treatment, it is necessary to schedule a non-binding consultation. At this meeting we will discuss your eligibility, the total duration of treatment and questions may be asked about the procedure itself.
An appointment can also be made for a patch test if you are sensitive to allergic reactions. Not allergic? Then, we make an appointment for the first session.
The total price depends on the number of areas to be treated. See our price list for pricing.
It is important to know that these pigments fade after a while. In order to maintain your close-shaved effect, a touch-up will be necessary in the long term.
When it will be necessary varies from person to person and according to lifestyle. Maybe after 2 years but for some people it can also be after 5 years.
