Unbelievable: Tattoo Hair Pigmentation Gives Back Missing Hairline
Good Look Ink.
That's the name of the company that is doing some very amazing cosmetic hair miracles.
We caught wind of this on Good Morning America today, and we were blown away.
The process is called Cosmetic Transdermal Hair Restoration or scalp micropigmentation.
To us, it looks like the areas of the scalp that are balding or missing hair are tattooed with ink, to resemble a hairline or to appear as a fuller head of hair. In other words, all pigment is blended to match one's natural follicle hair.
And we think the results speak for themselves. Pretty awesome, indeed!
So, how is it done?
According to GoodLookInc.com, "Cosmetic Transdermal Hair Replication is a process of inserting pigment into the skin with an electrically-powered hair-fine needle. The custom needles penetrate the skin by about a millimeter and deposits an impression of insoluble CTHR™ formulated pigment with each application. The pigment appears through the epidermis, which is the outer layer of skin.
"The result is a client’s replicated follicle applied tens of thousands of times, creating the appearance of a full-looking head of hair that can last a lifetime"!
