See the difference with medical tattooing for hair loss

Scalp Micropigmentation Surrey

If you’re feeling at a loss, there is an effective solution to lack of hair on brows, lash line and scalp.

Hair is often referred to as your ‘crowning glory’ and is a key part of our identity. But sometimes hair loss can occur from an early age, for a variety of reasons, resulting in baldness, thinning hair or scarring on the scalp, eyebrow or around the eye.

A change of facial features is one of the areas that has the biggest impact psychologically.

Medical tattooing has the answer to restoring many features such as eyebrows, eye definition, and small patches of hairloss due to illness, surgery or medical treatments. These areas can be visible and for both men and women, can cause worry and anxiety, often leading to a lack of confidence and significant stress. Medical Tattooing can replicate the surrounding hair to reduce the visibility of bald/thinning or scarred areas of hairloss. It is a safe, effective, and long-lasting treatment that results in a natural, realistic effect.

How can medical tattooing help?

  • hairloss patches
  • thinning hair
  • eyebrow thinning and loss
  • eyelash thinning and loss
  • scarring to the brow area and scalp
  • scarring following hair replacement treatment
  • alopecia

Searching for “Scalp Micropigmentation London”?

I am based in a state of the art clinics in both Surrey, just off the M25, and London. If you are searching for “Scalp Micropigmentation Surrey” you have come to the right place.

How does it work?

Pigment or ink can be used to imitate hair follicles. This will be performed over three sessions, building up the colour and detail over time.

After a treatment the area may look red, a little sore and darker than the desired result. It can take three to seven days to heal, slight sloughing may occur, and then the colour will look approximately 50% lighter.

With scalp density work, ink is used in place of pigment so the results are longer lasting and only require a slight colour boost every five to ten years.

Medical Tattooing with pigment can last between one to five years before a Colour Boost may be needed.

The risks involved are minimal;

  • As with all injection sites there is a risk of infection. To minimise this risk the aftercare needs to be adhered to.
  • On a few occasions the skin does not retain the pigment well.

Consultation

An initial consultation of half an hour is required to determine patient expectations, suitability of treatment, full medical history in order for a treatment plan to be drawn up.

Pre-Treatment

24 hours prior; do not take the following substances: Stimulants: Tea, coffee, soft drinks with caffeine or other substances containing stimulants.

Treatment

The number of sessions will depend upon the size of the area to be treated, the level of discolouration and how well the aftercare is adhered to.

The treatment is NOT painful.

Cost is applied per treatment sequence and will be discussed during the consultation.
Aftercare (For 7-14 days after the procedure)

NO WATER EXPOSURE for 48 hours and then minimal water for the following week.

AVOID EXPOSURE TO SUN, TANNING BEDS AND UV RAYS. Use an effective sunscreen of 50SPF for protection.

What my patients say…

"If I could regain and harness all the time and energy I've ever spent agonising over my hair (or lack of) I could probably power the whole of London for over a year. I've literally spent hours painstakingly clipping it up in obscure ways in the attempt to make my hair look "normal". Exhausting. I've tried to be philosophical about the scarring and extremely thin patches of hair that cover my scalp, but at the end of the day it's a matter of confidence and feeling comfortable in your body. They don't call hair your "crowning glory" for nothing. Medical tattooing is incredible. I feel so lucky to have had it recommended to me. I was shown such care, attention to detail, warmth & empathy, and instead of feeling awkward about "baring all”, I felt like a masterpiece. The tattooing is done so skilfully that far from being painful, I actually find it relaxing!

The tattooing is done so skilfully that far from being painful, I actually find it relaxing! This has changed my life. I now have the confidence to wear my hair in whichever way I want to, and this confidence is reflected in all that I do. Instead of wasting energy on being self-conscious I can focus on what really matters, enjoying life!"

"In January I lost all my hair to total alopecia! Lucklily in May Rae Denman came to my WI and gave us a talk about permanent makeup and medical tattooing. I was very impressed to see her skill at tattooing “hair” where there wasn’t actually any which really looked “real”. After consideration and also seeing the work she did creating one of my WI colleague’s eyebrows I contacted her in July. It is now September and I can boast I have the “best eyebrows” I have ever had and they are completely maintenance free! I visited her 4 times. The first she established what had caused my condition and what medication I was taking (making careful notes along the way). As I have always had allergies once I agreed that I wished to go ahead she patch tested me with the anaesthetic and vegetable dyes that she would use, and only when she knew that I would not be allergic to them did I go again for my first treatment. She very carefully selected the dyes she thought best for me and then proceeded to outline my new brows, and before anything permanent happened gave me a mirror to check that I was completely happy with the shape and colour. On my approval she proceeded. She carefully explained that they would look darker initially and then would “fade” and that they would be a little puffy and may weep initially. I am glad to say I sailed through this with hardly any discomfort at all. The next time I visited she completed my brows. My next visit was just to ensure I did not need any “touching up” or to perfect anything I may have thought needed any adjustment or addition in any way. My whole treatment was conducted with the utmost care and consideration. The tattooing itself is not at all painful and well worth the little “discomfort” experienced for the end result. My new eyebrows have given my face definition lost without brows and lashes and has given my confidence a great boost – I love them! I have no reservation in recommending Rae as she is certainly a “master of her craft."

Milly Kidd, September 2018

"I had a complex about my eyebrows for many years but it worsened in 2016 when I lost my hair and then my eyebrows due to a traumatic experience. My confidence plummeted and I spent a lot of time searching for the right person to correct them. I went to see Rae Denman at the Harley Street Clinic on the 26th May 2018. She was extremely professional, knowledgeable and friendly. She took a lot of time to explain the procedure and made sure she understood my concerns and calmed my nerves. The whole experience was fantastic, the time went by so quickly. The result of Rae’s work is amazingly realistic and I highly recommend her."
