This is a very important discussion post about Tricopigmentation.
This could be an opportunity for all users to know more about the technique and an opportunity for us to explain details about our technique.
A short introduction on scalp pigmentation gradual evolution during years:
It has been now two decades that scalp pigmentation exist.
The scalp pigmentation methodology and equipment evolution started first of all by using tattoo machines and then micropigmentation machine and tools.
Even Beauty Medical during the first years of treatment being performed used a general GE machine, semi permanent make-up machine.
After several treatment unsatisfactory results mostly the aesthetic side of the treatment final effect and after many tests to evaluate duration and stabilization of the pigment in the scalp tissue, Beauty Medical technical director achived the current methodology, which is still in continuous evolution.
Thanks to the help of a German engineer the technical director created a new Tricopigmentation machine, very rigid, which is able to give the practitioner a more precise results as you can see from the picture.
Details generated to the needle as the porosity to inoculate the same amount of pigment in each dot performed and to the handpiece allow to have as result very tiny dots that can recreate the hair bulb appropriately.
When we have decided to produce these types of changings in the system it was because something in the result was not satisfactory.
My studies on the field as thousand of scalps treated demostated gave my the possibility of reaching this temporary system while still maintaining the duration of the effect (approximately 1 year).
Low-quality pigments and inability of the practitioner during the procedure can lead to a change in the pigment: change of shape, widening irregular dots and change of color grey bluish.
Specifying the pigment change can happen due the components presented in the pigment (e.g. powder quality) and it could be accentuated by low ability in inoculating the pigment, different depth of the deposit in the skin.
Today we can guarantee important results tahks to years of experience and a guaranteed system if systematically followed.
It can occur that the Tricopigmentation result may be imperfect if one of the pillarsi s missing.
The pigmenti is composed by a powder part and a liquid part.
– powder part wich is iron oxide, titanium bioxide
– liquid part wich is water, alcohol, isopropyl and glycerine (coming from soya)
The components in the pigment goes first of all throughout micronization process wich allows to modify all different shapes of all powders by having all equal powders.
In this way our body, towards our immune system specifically thanks phagocitosys process can slowly eliminate the foreign body, wich are the pigment powders during time.
Secondly it goes trought another process wich incapsulate all powders in a sylicon sphere to keep the pigment covered and as little as possible to help the phagocitosys process.
Personally I use a mix of pigments that offer an unique color, the keratine color, wich I notice to be the color of the hair bulb when shaved.
This pigmenti is mixed at the moment before treatment procedure with a special stabilizer, thickeners and gelling agent for a more refined result which is the secret of the system.
The system includes:
– machine and handpiece specifically for Tricopigmentation
– needle, sharp, one point, porosity characteristic
– pigments, temporary, micro powder
– specific stabilizer
– depth of the deposit
– dot position, two techniques in two consequently days
The duration of the treatment and the number of sessions to be performed before reaching the resulting effect depends on the individual immune system, skin regeneration, scalp tissue, habits and external factors.
The temporary Tricopigmentation treatment is performed in three sessions:
1st and 2nd session in two days consequently
3rd session after 20-30 days from the date of the procedure.
Treatment resulting effect evolution:
The treatment will remain stable in great condition for an average period of 6 months from last treatment session. After 1 year from the last treatment session the result will be of about 60%. Subsequently the resulting effect of the treatment will fade gradually untill optically disappeare withinin a period of 2 years.
The range can change from Patient to Patient depending on immune system, skin regeneration, scalp tissue, habits and external factors (sun, U.V. exposure, saltiness, chlorine and more).
Being the Tricopigmentation a reabsorbable treatment it will require annual touch ups (generally one or two yearly) to ensure constant result.
The number of sessions performed during years postpone the fading.
The operator will evaluate the annual number of treatment sessions according to treatment fading with the Patient.
Of great significance in order to reach a very natural and pleasant result is the hairline draw, treatment homogeneity and the harmony with existing hair.
