Q?

How does the process work?

A.

It usually takes 2 to 3 sessions, each being about 2 to 3 hours long. Rest periods are scheduled between sessions to let the pigmentation heal, this helps us see the progress being made and to better plan for proceeding sessions. In the few months that follow the procedure, the pigmentation will settle, get smaller and look more normal.

Q?

Does it really look like hair?

A.

We strive to produce real looking head of hair that cannot be differentiated from real hair. Everyone’s hair and head structure is different, and we reproduce it to make it look if you have a full head of shaven hair. No one can tell the difference after the procedure regardless of how closely your head is examined.
