Bald or Balding? Thanks to micro hair pigmentation, 100% solution after 3 treatments. No cure no pay.

Micro hair pigmentation (MHP) is a non-surgical treatment that helps camouflage thinning hair, hair loss and even complete baldness. By inserting virtual 'hair stubble' you get an optically full head of hair. The applied hair stubble cannot be distinguished from real hair.

There are several factors that should be discussed beforehand, including:

  • Current hair situation situation
  • Cause of hair loss
  • Desired results
  • Budget

Hair Pigmentation - Non Surgical:

  1. Non-surgical: Hair pigmentation is a non-surgical procedure in which pigment is applied to the scalp to create the illusion of a full head of hair with close-shaven stubble.
  2. Cosmetic solution: It is an excellent choice for people who want to create an optical illusion of thicker hair and a defined hairline.

  3. Fast procedure: Hair pigmentation end result is achieved after about 3 treatments that are usually performed within 1 month.

  4. Less to no recovery time: Patients generally require no recovery time after hair pigmentation. There are no swellings nor are there bruises or scabs after the treatment. This allows patients to return to their normal activities the day after a treatment.
  5. Affordable solution: Compared to hair transplantation, hair pigmentation is much cheaper.
  6. Long-lasting result: The end result only needs to be refreshed after 3-5 years.
  7. No products or other frequent maintenance required: After the end result has been achieved, no additional products need to be used. In principle, no maintenance is required until about 3-5 years after the initial start-up treatment.
  8. High 'hair' density: in contrast to hair transplantation, a very high 'hair' density can be achieved. Typically, pigmented density is the same as the period before your hair loss/hair loss.
  9. Natural-looking: A well-executed hair pigmentation is unrecognizable from normal social distance. 99% of our customers often indicate this through their hair pigmentation experience reports.

Hair transplant - surgical

  1. Minimally Invasive: FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) is a minimally invasive technique where individual hair follicles are harvested one at a time. This results in smaller incisions and less scarring compared to other transplant methods.

  2. Natural results: Using the FUE technique, experienced doctors can precisely implant the hair follicles, resulting in natural-looking hair growth that matches the existing hairline and patterns.

  3. Permanent result: Transplanted hair follicles are usually genetically resistant to hair loss, which means that the transplanted hair can grow almost for life.

  4. Minimal recovery time: FUE hair transplant generally requires less recovery time compared to older hair transplant methods. Patients can usually quickly return to their normal daily activities, typical recovery time after a hair transplant is 10-14 days.

  5. Scar-free*: The FUE technique leaves *minimal scars, because the hair follicles are harvested individually. The small incisions heal quickly and are usually barely visible. *The scars are not visible with a normal hairstyle.

  6. Hair transplant in Belgium is world class: An experienced doctor with experience, in a renowned Belgian clinic, can offer a tailor-made treatment that is tailored to the specific needs and goals of the patient. This ensures a personalized and effective approach. Preferably choose a hair transplant doctor who performs hair transplants full-time.

  7. Choose hair clinics that can deliver consistently good results: Renowned Belgian clinics with experienced hair transplant doctors have a professional team of staff and modern facilities, so patients can expect high-quality care and comfortable treatment.

FUE hair transplant method : the 'gold standard'

FUE Hair Transplant is a surgical procedure in which individual hair follicles are moved from the back or side of the head to another area where the hair is thinning or balding. The transplanted hair will continue to grow. Hair transplant can restore a fuller and more natural looking hairline, but the youthful and 'original' density can rarely be achieved.

In advanced hair loss, hair pigmentation is preferable to hair transplantation.

It is important to note that the cost of hair transplantation and hair pigmentation can vary widely depending on several factors, including location, clinic, doctor's experience, scope of treatment, and individual patient needs.

In general, it can be said that hair transplantation is generally more expensive than hair pigmentation. Here are some points to keep in mind when comparing costs:

Hair Transplant Cost:

  1. Surgical procedure: Hair transplant is a surgical procedure in which hair follicles (grafts) are moved from the donor area to the recipient area. This surgical nature of the procedure can increase costs as it requires the involvement of a specialized medical team and experienced hair transplant physician.
  2. Number of grafts: The cost of hair transplantation is often calculated based on the number of grafts (hair follicles) that are transplanted. The larger the area to be treated and the more grafts required, the higher the cost.

Hair Pigmentation Cost:

  1. Non-Surgical Procedure: Hair pigmentation is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure in which pigment is applied to the scalp to create the illusion of hair stubble. Since it does not require surgery, the cost is generally lower than hair transplantation.
  2. Treatment Sessions: The cost of hair pigmentation can also vary based on the number of treatment sessions required. Sometimes multiple sessions are required to achieve the desired results, which can affect the overall cost.

Both hair transplant and hair pigmentation have their pros and cons depending on your goals, preferences, budget and suitability.

The hair density in hair transplantation is often 30-60% of the original hair density, where hair pigmentation will reach the optical 100% full density. Hair pigmentation can provide instant results, usually within a month, which can last for 3-5 years before fading.
  • Need maintenance treatment?: Hair transplant requires more maintenance than hair pigmentation, as additional procedures may be required to achieve the desired density or coverage. The transplanted hair may also be affected by further hair loss or aging. hair pigmentation requires less maintenance, as it only needs occasional touch-ups to refresh the color or adjust the shape. However, it may also be necessary to shave or trim the existing hair to match the length of the pigmented dots.
