Accept the marketing cookies to watch this video. Click here.

Hair pigmentation / Tricopigmentation is a specially developed non-surgical treatment to simulate hair stubble or in some cases to create a higher optical density.

If executed with the necessary knowledge and experience, the result will be 100% natural.
Prohairclinic offers this treatment since 2012, full-time. Our practitioners also have the necessary qualifications and accreditation. Quality through experience and that is reflected in an ever-growing national and international clientele.


Hair pigmentation for bald or balding men - the shaven look style

With the help of special hair pigmentation pigments, we can give a virtual hairstyle to bald or balding men that look like a shaven down head.

This effect is 100% natural looking and not recognizable as a hair simulation.

Of course, the treatment must be carried out with the necessary training and experience. We also use special equipment and techniques.

Hair pigmentation for a higher optical density - men and women

Hair pigmentation can in some cases also be used in thinning hairs where the scalp is slightly visible.

The treatment can reduce the contrast between skin color and hair color and thereby give the illusion of more hair. This is only possible with brown or black hair color.

Temporary pigments or long-acting pigments?

Because both long-acting and short-term pigments can be used during hair pigmentation, the sector has chosen different names. This is not an official name, but most therapists worldwide use:

· SMP hair pigmentation = long term pigments (fading starts after + - 3-5 years)
· Tricopigmentation = short term pigments (fading starts after 6-12 months)

(It is possible to start with short-term pigments and then switch to long-term pigments).
