FAQ  – Patch Test

Following your initial consultation you can decide whether or not you’d like a patch test. As well as determining the likelihood of any adverse reactions, it will also help you to determine whether Scalp Micropigmentation is the right treatment for you.

What will the patch test involve?

We’ll apply a small amount of pigment (around 10-15 dots) on a very small and discreet area of your scalp, no bigger than a penny. We’ll agree the location with you before beginning the test. A very light shade of pigment will be used to keep the area as inconspicuous as possible.

What if I have known allergies or skin conditions?

The patch test is ideal for clients who suffer from existing skin complaints. We’d ask you to monitor the area for any swelling, itching, or rash, and will afterwards advise on the suitability of treatment. Following the patch test your EVOKE technician will be available to you at any point over the phone or in person for guidance. Adverse reactions to Scalp Micropigmentation are very rare, but even the smallest chance means that we prefer to take every precaution for your comfort and wellbeing.

How long will the patch test take?

The patch test will only take around fifteen minutes.

How much does the patch test cost?

Nothing! We’re pleased to provide a free of charge patch test to any client who requests one following consultation and completion of a medical questionnaire and disclaimer.
