We understand that pain management is one of the top concerns people have when deciding whether scalp micropigmentation is right for them. There are a number of hours spent in the chair and we want to reassure you that it won’t be time spent in pain!
Scalp Micropigmentation feels like tiny pinpricks on the scalp. Many people expect the pain level to be similar to that of a tattoo, however, the technique used and the depth that the needle is inserted to deposit the pigment is very different and therefore the pain is far less.
There are factors that can affect how painful treatment is which we will cover below, however, we must make it clear, the vast majority of our clients report that it is much less painful than they expected and describe it as a feeling of discomfort rather than pain.
Very few of our clients require the use of pain relief.
There are a few factors that can affect how painful scalp micropigmentation is for an individual.
We don’t use anaesthetic creams as this can affect the treatment, however, over the counter pain relief tablets can be taken before commencing if required.
We will do everything we can to ensure you are relaxed before your treatment as this can also effect how painful your experience is. If you are tense, it is likely you will feel more discomfort than otherwise. We can also take regular breaks as required to ensure you are as comfortable as possible throughout.
Any pain will abate immediately after treatment is complete, though the scalp may feel tender for up to 24 hours afterwards.
