Differences between scalp and Cosmetic Tattoo pigment
Scalp Pigmentation is an different technique than regular facial micropigmentation, using different pigments
Brow for instance, slowly fades, need a touch up after approximately 2 years. This something we do not want for Scalp Pigmentation. The pigment brand that we use has developed special scalp pigments which do not fade after the healing process, stay crispy in the skin for many years but are easy to remove, if nessacerry
Also some of our pigments are Iron oxide free. This is nessaccery, since scalp pigmentation is applied on large part of the scalp. If you need a medical scan, MRI, Iron oxide pigments will disturb MRI scan image. This is the reason why scalp pigments must be iron oxide free
The Scalp pigments that we use at ELKA SMP do not contain glycerine. Yes it is common to use glycerine in pigment but it is not good for scalp. Glycerine makes the consistency of pigment more creamy and equal but glycerine slow down the healing process This gives your body the changes to reject the pigment and make dots on scalp more thick after the healing process.
Our Scalp pigments also contain a special glue which stops bleeding and accelerate the healing process of the epidermis
This way the pigment is less likely to reject or spread
The manufacturer of the brand that we use has developed pigments for a shaven look and longer hair pigmentation, which make your existing hair look fuller.
These pigments gives a real shaven look, darkness of follicles can be opbtained by different shades of black. pigments comes in 11 different shades.
For tinted skin, pigment is adjusted for blue undertones, and we have pigment especially for dark skin.
All Of our pigments contain this special protein, which works as a catalyzer. This protein makes pigments solid as soon as it comes in contact with other proteins (for instance Blood).
This is why our pigments dry this quickly.
They all contain the same brown/black carbon pigment.
The Pigment which are for creating shaven look at bold skin. are glycerine free, carbon pigment based, contain special formula for stopping migration of the pigment and fast healing.
After the healing process, these pigments stay approximately 8 year in the skin. Much longer dan regular micro-pigmentation pigments.
These pigments are very easy to remove, if nessaccery.
Some of our Scalp Pigments are for Hair Filling for clients with thinning hair, to cover the white skin between the thinning hair.
