What is the general life-span of hair simulation semi-permanent cosmetic tattoos?
Hair simulation semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing, also known as micropigmentation, refers to the introduction of special pigments in the superficial stratum of the skin, not unlike classical tattoos, with the aim of simulating natural-looking hair follicles. The pigments themselves are in fact inorganic, hypoallergenic minerals which are fragrance and emollient-free. Unfortunately, the effects of micropigmentation tend to fade with the passing of time. The rate with which the cosmetic tattoos start to fade depends heavily on the client's type of skin and the level of daily sun exposure. It is generally agreed that the life-span of scalp micropigmentation may last from 18 months up to 4-5 years after which another session is needed to revitalize and improve the cosmetic results of the procedure.
If you wish to prolong the life-span of a hair simulation semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo, try to avoid when possible exposing the skin of the scalp to the sun and make sure it is well moisturized. If, on the other hand, you feel you do need another session, the experienced medical and cosmetic staff of Renew Skin & Health Clinic is prepared to offer you high quality services in a professional environment.
