Dermagrafix is proud to offer the latest advances in follicle replication pigmentation otherwise known as Scalp Micro-pigmentation (SMP). Scalp Micropigmentation is proven to be a safe and effective hair loss solution for both men and women of all ages and ethnicities. This unique and revolutionary non-surgical treatment camouflages thinning, bald, or scarred areas of the scalp by adding precise hair follicle replicas to the scalp.
A natural-looking shaven style or a dense background to natural hair strands is the finished result that last for years. Those who are not good candidates for hair transplant procedures may opt for SMP to camouflage or supplement their hair loss. Scalp Micropigmentation is a ground breaking solution for those who suffer from alopecia, male or female patterned baldness, thyroid related hair loss, and scar concealment from a surgery or trauma.
Tricopigmentation is similar process to SMP where the practitioner recreates the look of the natural hair follicle by placing pigment in the skin. It too resembles a shaven hair follicle or can add color behind longer strands of existing hair. The main difference between Tricopigmentation (Trico) and Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) are the pigments that are used. The Tricopigmentation process uses a special pigment known as a hydrophilic pigment. These organic and in-organic pigments are encapsulated to keep a very crisp impression in the skin but will break down within two to three years time. If a temporary hair loss solution is desired Trico might be the better option, however, pigment can linger in the skin in some individuals. Here at Dermagrafix we use only the best for our Tricopigmentation procedures and we are proud to list Beauty Medical, Int. as our exclusive Triopigmentation supplier.
Which Option is best for me?
The best way to make your decision is to talk with one of our Scalp Pigmentation specialists who can give answers to your specific questions. In most cases a more permanent option is desired since it is more cost effective.

Should I get a patch test?
