Scalp Micropigmentation

HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation 
HPT®

Hair microPigmentation Treatment, more commonly know as scalp micro-pigmentation or scalp tattooing is a revolutionary semi-permanent micro-pigmenting technique that offers an alternative option for both male and female patients suffering from hair loss who are not appropriate candidates for hair transplant surgery. HPT® involves the use of a digitally controlled needle which applies medical grade hypoallergenic colour pigment into the scalp. As well as male and female pattern hair loss, HPT® can create the illusion of hair for patients suffering from a host of scalp conditions including scarring alopecia’s, alopecia areata, totalis and universalis, as well as hair loss due to injuries and burns or disguising older FUT or FUE surgery scars.

HPT® for male pattern baldness

HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation can create the illusion of either denser looking hair, creating a hairline or even full head coverage ‘shaven look’ which previously may have been unachievable with other hair loss solutions. The hairline is the most important part of your scalp micro-pigmentation treatment, as this is the focal point, and will determine the overall look. If not done correctly the treatment will look unnatural and fake. Our experienced technician will work with you to design, mark, measure and approve each hairline before any pigment is implanted. Some patients may wish for a very defined hairline, but we often advise them to try a more natural look that takes into account age-appropriateness and ethnicity.

HPT® with transplant surgery

HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation is a cost effective hair loss solution which can also enhance any successful transplant surgery, either Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) of Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), by creating the illusion of thicker ‘hair’ at root level and infilling between transplanted grafts. This treatment can be used in combination with surgery if the patient does not have enough donor hair for surgery or requires additional density to improve the overall result of their transplant.

HPT® for transplant scarring

HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation has been effectively used on a number of patients to camouflage scarring; either strip scarring, hole punch or plug marks left after hair transplant surgery. The pigment is implanted into the scar tissue, matching the hair follicles and hair surrounding it and depending on the type of scar that needs camouflaging the pigment will be blended into the hair surrounding the scar for a more natural look. Scar tissue is very different in composition to that of healthy skin and can be unpredictable in how it reacts to scalp micro-pigmentation treatment and retention of the implanted pigment. HPT® is only appropriate for the treatment of scars more than a year old which have fully healed.

HPT® for female hair loss

We understand how devastating this condition can be for women, in particular, who often feel self-conscious and isolated when experiencing hair loss. However, female hair loss is a problem that is effecting an ever-increasing number of women due to modern lifestyles and varying medical conditions. HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation has immediate results and will create the illusion of thicker hair, taking the focus away from the scalp or bare patches and reduces the time and pressure of having to hide these thinning or bare patches under headwear or ensuring your hairstyle is always ‘exact’ to cover these areas.

HPT® Treatment Cost

How much does HPT® cost?

HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation treatment will vary by patient depending on your level of hair loss and the area to be treated. As a guide, HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation treatments range from £750 (Type 2) to £3,000 (Type 7). Scar camouflage is priced on an individual patient basis.

For a better understanding of your level of hair loss please see Norwood-Hamilton scale

We would always prefer to talk to our potential patients first to get a better understanding of your hair loss history and your expectations of the treatment. This way we are better placed to ascertain if HPT® scalp micro-pigmentation is the right hair loss solution for you.

However, if you’re looking for a quick estimate for the cost of treatment please feel free to send us a photo of your hair loss or transplant scarring to info@hair-ink.co.uk and we will reply with an estimate for your treatment.

Dr Rogers Compliment Letter 2015 – SG

When I arrived at the clinic on Harley Street I was welcomed warmly by the staff and did not have to wait long before the Surgeon (Dr Richard Rogers) came and introduced himself. I then sat down with Dr Rogers who spent time getting to know me, asking very detailed questions. He then spent some time with me penciling on different hairlines giving me plenty of time to think, whilst giving his expert opinion and advice on what would look the most realistic. When I had decided on the placement of my new hair line Dr Rogers made sure that I was happy with the outline drawn one last time walking round showing me it from different angles using a mirror. Through Dr Rogers being so intent on making sure I was 100% happy with the procedure before going ahead really helped me feel comfortable and sure with my decision. With my hairline drawn and having been made to feel completely relaxed by Dr Rogers I was walked to the surgery. Even then Dr Rogers continued to make me feel comfortable introducing me to each of his nurses and explaining each step to me in detail of what they would be doing whilst he performed the procedure.

 

Having talked through the procedure with me and going over everything in extreme detail Dr Rogers asked me to place myself on the chair and then began to adjust the position making sure that I was completely comfortable. Now that I was sat comfortably and ready for the procedure to begin Dr Rogers began to guide me through each step before doing so. To begin with he explained that he would be administering general anesthetic to numb the surrounding area, and told me that it may hurt a little like a pinch. However, I did not feel a thing! In fact I didn’t even realise Dr Rogers had begun, he was so gentle and light handed I was shocked and of course extremely pleased! With the first part out of the way and the surrounding area completely numb, Dr Rogers told me that he would now begin to remove the strip of skin. At this stage I could honestly not believe how it was possible that I could not feel my skin being cut away. Throughout the procedure I was not once in pain and Dr Rogers continually made sure that I was ok and checked that I was in no kind of pain.

 

Better still Dr Rogers talked to me throughout the procedure and joined in with conversations between the nurses and myself. This really made me feel at ease and at times I nearly forgot that I was having a hair transplant. With my strip of skin removed and the nurses now taking each hair follicle from the skin, Dr Rogers began to stitch my skin back together. Even now I could not feel a thing and before I knew it Dr Rogers had finished. Whilst the nurses continued to separate the hair follicles Dr Rogers offered me some water and asked if I had any food to eat to help boost my sugar levels. Once I had eaten a snack and topped myself up with water Dr Rogers made sure that I was comfortable before the procedure continued. He then explained that he would be administering some local anesthetic to the surrounding area for the hair follicles to be placed. With the area numbed and having been told what was to happen next Dr Rogers began to make tiny pin pricks into my skin for the hair follicles to be placed in by his nurses. I cannot stress enough how I did not feel a thing and it was over with so quickly, he was a magician with his hands! It was now time for the final part of the procedure; the nurses began to delicately place my hair follicles in one by one.

 

With the procedure now finished and my new hairline complete, I was given plenty of time to slowly sit myself up. Dr Rogers then offered me some water and food to help boost my sugar levels. Now that I had my bearings back, Dr Rogers walked me into a quiet room and showed me to a mirror. He then said that he would leave me for a few minutes to look at the hairline. After a few minutes had passed he knocked on the door and asked if I was happy with the outcome, to which I found myself near on speechless! I told him how happy I was with it and continually thanked him for doing such an amazing job. He then asked me to take a seat and began to explain in detail how to care for my new hair each day and gave me a detailed plan on paper. He then gave me a spray that he explained would help to clean any blood away from the surrounding area. After making sure that I was completely happy with the outcome and asking if I had any questions Dr Rogers shook my hand and wished me the best of luck with my new hairline.
