Is Scalp Micropigmentation really safe? The short answer to this is simply, yes. Scalp Micropigmentation is a totally safe and minimally invasive, non-surgical solution to hair loss for both male and female. It is very realistic looking and the deposits of pigment rest in the very outer layer of the scalp so most of the time there is no drawn blood during the procedure. The pigments used in the industry are usually organic and made only from carbon, alcohol and water. There is also no additives added such as iron oxide which is found in most other inks used for semi-permanent makeup and tattooing. Everything mentioned above is only true if your technician is a highly trained professional and his work speaks for itself. There is a fine line between a great procedure and a botched procedure. Do your research on the business and choose wisely !
