Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-invasive treatment that uses detailed micro-needles to deposit pigment into the scalp. The result creates the appearance of tiny hair follicles that help thicken and restore the look of fuller hair.
Scars and stretch marks can cause upset and frustration.
Medical tattooing is the process of depositing skin-coloured pigments into the epidermal layer of the skin of scars and stretch marks.
The chosen pigment will replicate your natural skin tone, to camouflage the scar or stretch mark underneath a uniform skin colour, thus improving the aesthetic appearance of the damaged skin.
Scalp Micropigmentation (commonly known as SMP or micropigmentation) is a cosmetic tattoo that creates natural-looking hair follicles using microneedles and organic pigments. This gives the illusion of a completely full head of hair, closely shaved to a “buzz cut.” When this procedure is performed by a trained and experienced SMP practitioner, the results appear 100% natural. Your work colleagues, friends and family members won't be aware that you’ve undergone treatment. The most common feedback in this respect is that clients receive compliments of looking younger or healthier.
Every month, more and more people turn to this life-changing treatment as their first choice hair loss treatment, combating baldness and achieving that full head of hair. Hair Tattoos really are growing in popularity, and so are the number of un-experienced practitioners. With a small team boasting years of experience, Ink Fx guarantee you consistency and the highest quality of service.

Signs and Symptoms of infection:
SWELLING: A slight amount of swelling is typical for a fresh tattoo. If swelling becomes excessive, uncomfortable and you feel the pain radiating beyond the site of the tattoo, then this is a sign of infection.
FEVER: Fever is a symptom of an underlying condition, which is most often an infection. Please contact a medical provider if you think you may have a possible infection
Long Term Care
Long term aftercare rule #1 use spf sunblock preferably Coppertone brand. If you are out in the sun for extended periods of time please reapply throughout the day accordingly. Unprotected exposure to the sun can and will cause unnecessary and early fading issues.
Be vigilant and protect your treatment. It is also recommended to use body lotion on your scalp such as Aveeno brand periodically so the skin stays vibrant. After the first 28 days after any treatment you can swim in chlorinated pools without any issues. If you stick to these basic guidelines you will prolong the life of your treatment.
