The first treatment takes the longest and depending on the size of the area to be treated can take around 2 – 4 hours. The second treatment is usually shorter and if a third treatment is required it is shorter still.
If you have a lighter complexion, your scalp will have ’redness’ for approximately 24-48 hours after treatment. On darker skin this does not tend to show at all. The results are immediate, so you will have the appearance of a closely shaven head although it may take 2-3 applications for the completed look. The pigment colour may appear darker until it has had time to settle and you have washed off the excess pigment, approximately 5-7 days. Again this is more noticeable on lighter skin. It is not uncommon to lose implanted colour, which is why you will require 2-3 treatments to ensure an even colour match all over.
HPT® scalp micropigmentation is designed to last a number of years and typically we would expect this treatment to last between 1-3 years. However, it is impossible to predict the exact length of time it will last, as each patient is different, and lifestyle choice and other variables can effect the treatment in individual cases. However, some patients may have the remnants of this treatment for a longer period. Your HPT® scalp micropigmentation treatment is guaranteed for 12 months from the date of your initial treatment session. Following the completion of all recommended sessions (as outlined in your Summary Of Consultation) any fading that has occurred will be rectified within this time frame. Clients are permitted 1 treatment session within the 12 month time frame.
