Replication of Hair Follicles & Hair Density
Replication of hair follicles gives you the illusion of the ‘shaven look which can be achieved in areas such as the scalp, beard and other parts of the body. Using both medical and cosmetic type methods, fully FDA approved ink and equipment, we are able to achieve a natural hair follicle illusion on the skin. Hair ink density is a combination of replication of hair follicles but repeated and built up in a refined way to achieve a denser and fuller looking area of hair. At Medinkx, you can benefit of a modern and effective treatment with immediate subtle results. Scalp Micropigmentation is a recent technique designed to help both men and women who experience hair loss.

With the growing trend for beards, we now carry out hair follicle replication on beards and any facial hair. The process is the same of Scalp Micropigmentation and the costs will differ based on coverage if area.
An initial consultation is required to discuss what you like to achieve, a test patch and colour assessment is undertaken along with working with yourself on the design and hairline. At this stage, we will be able to determine the number sessions required which can be anything from 2 – 5 sessions over a few weeks depending on the requirements. The equipment used is state of the art digital equipment with super fine customised needles used to replicate the scalp hair follicles. These super fine needles implant pigment into the scalp going as far down to the dermal layer.
Each treatment will vary with time from 1 to 4 hours. Using specialist machine and fine needle, pigment is applied to the skin.
Between 7 to 10 day after the first treatment, a number of follow up treatment(s) will be needed to add more pigment and complete the treatment. Areas of the scalp will be darkened and appear denser each time. Please bear in mind, some people may experience small/tiny scabbing and mild itchiness during the healing stage. After your consultation and assessment, the first session will be subtle filling and creation off hairline. The second session on wards will be intense filling and completion to meet expectations.
