Hair Simulation

Tattoo hair simulation is a permanent cosmetic procedure which masks the appearance of thinning or balding spots by using ink to mimic the appearance of hair follicles. The treatment is sometimes referred to under the names “hair follicle replication,” “cosmetic transdermal hair replication” and “micro hair tattooing” (including derivatives of those). Makeup Forever By Bella offers specific pigments, specialized techniques, and different needles than traditional tattoos, but the process is basically the same. Bella uses a needle to insert a dye permanently into the skin.
The success of the procedure depends on Bella's ability to place the images in a pattern and density which mimic the recipient’s natural hair. Who could benefit from this treatment? Men who prefer their head very closely shaved can use this treatment to fill in bald patches or replace a receding hairline. The scalp tattoo will blend in with the surrounding hair follicles, giving the appearance of a full head of (shaven) hair. A scalp tattoo can also be used to create the illusion of a crisp hairline, and the hairline can be illustrated in whatever shape or style a man prefers.How long does it take? The treatment is usually completed in two or more sessions lasting between 2 to 8 hours; and at least one follow-up session is required.
