5 Questions You Should Ask Your Micropigmentation Specialist

30 November, 2019

So, you’ve decided to tackle your hair loss problem by opting for scalp micropigmentation? It can be an overwhelming experience as you don’t know what to expect from the consultation. Here are 5 important questions you should ask the consultant or specialist before proceeding with the treatment.

  1. Who will be doing the actual procedure?

A micropigmentation clinic is just like any other hospital. There is more than one specialist who conducts the procedure. Clinics like Scalp Allure always ensure there are many qualified specialists to cater to each person’s individual needs. Ask which one of their specialists will be conducting the procedure. See if you can talk to them directly, instead of the consultant.

  1. How much experience do they have in scalp micropigmentation?

The more experienced your artist is, the better your treatment will be. As simple as that. You should ask how many procedures the specialist has conducted and of them how many have been successful. It may sound harsh, but there is no single surgeon, artist, or specialist who has a 100 percent success rate. Plus, it’s your right to know.

  1. Where did they train? And how? What is their qualification?

As you may already know, scalp micropigmentation involves “tattooing” ink onto your scalp. But you aren’t looking for a tattoo, are you? You want a way to cover the bald patches or unsightly scars on your head. So, you don’t want a tattoo artist doing your micropigmentation surgery. You want an actual specialist. Ask your artist where and under whom they trained in scalp microsurgery. Did they work on tools and actual patients during their training? Also, if possible, take a look at their qualifications. Many usually hang their certificates, awards, and accolades on their office walls. Get a peek at them.

  1. What exactly does the procedure involve?

If it is your first time getting a micropigmentation done, ask each and everything about the procedure. The process, the tools, the time, the cost, the aftercare tips, the healing process, the number of appointments required, and whatever comes to your mind about the procedure. If you’ve done it before and are coming for a follow-up after a long time, ask if there’s any change in the procedure since you got it done.

  1. What is the process if something were to go wrong?

There are many things that can go wrong during your procedure irrespective of the precautions taken. Ensure you ask what the contingency process is if anything were to go wrong during surgery. Usually, there will be a plan B but it is never needed. Things go on smoothly during a scalp micropigmentation procedure.

Before you sign on the dotted line for your micropigmentation surgery, ensure you have all the facts at hand. Speak to a few of the clinic’s as well as the specialist’s patients if you can and make an informed decision.
