No. Most clients describe the procedure as a slight discomfort. The procedure ofapplying micro insertions of natural pigments into the dermal layer of the skin for several hours can lead to increased tension and nervousness.
Is the procedure painful?
Is the procedure safe?
Yes. The scalp micropigmentation treatment is a minimally invasive procedure. Therefore, the risk of complications is virtually none andmay only resultin a slight reddening on the treated area that disappears approximately within 3 days.
How long will the entire procedure take?
On average, the human scalp has an astounding number of 100,000 hair follicles, approximately 700-1,000 follicles per 5 square cm. We strive to provide the most natural-looking hair follicles. As a result, the entire process usually requires at least three sessions to get an excellent result.
The entire procedure is described below:
Free consultation / paid trial treatment on request
First session: if marked yes when booking an appointment, it can be held immediately after the consultation. It will likely take 2 to 3 hours depending on the complexity of your micropigmentation needs.
Second session: performed after a period of at least 7 days, it lasts about 3-4 hours, gently improving the color and correcting the hairline.
3rd session: approx. 2 to 4 weeks after 2 sessions, it also takes 3-4 hours to achieve perfect color and hairline.
The total time needed to complete a series of treatments is from 3 to 6 weeks (on average, a specialist needs approx. 10 hours for the entire procedure).
What is the cost of the procedure at the Scalpmann Hair&Head Care clinic?
At the Scalpmann Hair&Head Care Clinic, each client is treated individually. Therefore, there is no universal process that we use to estimate the cost of the treatment. The price depends largely on the stage of hair loss and the type of appearance desired. It is based on the number of sessions required, the time and the complexity of the procedure.
Usually, the exact quote takes place during a free, noncommittal consultation. The agreed amount will be valid for a specific period of time. If we start treatment within this timeframe, this will be the price you pay, whether or not we have to spend more time / sessions than originally assumed.
We always focus on your satisfaction and achieving a look that you will be happy with.
Do you provide warranty for your treatments?
Yes. We provide a 12-month warranty starting from the last session. We are one of the few clinics in Poland that guarantees for its treatments. Detailed information on the warranty is provided at the time of booking.
What hairline will I have after the treatment?
The hairline is one of the most important elements of the entire scalp micropigmentation process, so we will devote a lot of time to it during the first treatment session.
The final version of its shape is always up to you. We make every effort to ensure that the hairline is natural and matches your appearance. We avoid creating artificial-looking, straight hairlines, very popular in the USA and UK.
Are there age restrictions?
The micropigmentation treatment is suitable for all age groups. Even people aged 60 and 70 can undergo micropigmentation treatments. Underage children will needa written consent of their parents.
How long do the effects of the treatment last?
The effects of the treatment can last even a lifetime, provided that it is properly cared for and maintained in the right way. We will discuss the details of care with you before the treatment. We recommend short corrections every three to six years. Special attention to the sun must be paid, as sunburn can have a harmful effect on micropigmentation.
Who will perform the procedure?
All treatments are performed by Christopher Reczynski, an experienced specialist and scalp micropigmentation trainer. Since 2015, he has conducted nearly 2,300 treatment sessions, and since 2018, he has also been sharing his experience with people interested in offering micropigmentation services.
How often will I have to shave my head?
This will depend on your personal preferences and how quickly your hair grows. Most customers prefer a freshly shaven head or a one-day stubble, so shaving the head every 1-3 days is required.
What pigment do you use?
At Scalpmann, as in most clinics operating in the world, we use only proven and tested pigments specially designed for micropigmentation of the scalp. We do not use colored pigments as this may cause the pigment to fadeand change the colour.

What can and cannot be done immediately after the procedure?
We provide accurate guidelines concerning care, although it is relatively simple. Intense workout is not recommended for 7 days after each treatment, and the scalp should not be washed or shaved for 3-4 days. We recommend not using any sunscreen immediately after the treatment and avoiding swimming pools with chlorinated water.
What will my head look like right after the procedure?
After the treatment, the scalp will be red and there may be small scabs that will disappear after washing the head. The red will be slightly red for 1-3 days. During this time, you should not sweat or wash your head excessively.
What will be the effect of the treatment?
You can expect immediate results with an immediate visible hairline as well as redness that will fade away after a few days. The pigment dots may appear darker than your natural hair at first. It can take up to four weeks for the pigments to lighten and adapt to your natural hair colour. Our treatments usually last three sessions, with a noticeable improvement after each one. See our gallery for examples of the results after each session.
Is scalp micropigmentation a good solution for a person using a hair system or wig?
Of course. If you are tired of the nuisance of the hair system or the embarrassing wig, micropigmentation may be the perfect solution to your problem. For those around you, you will be seen as someone who just shaved their hair. The micropigmentation itself will free you from the constant care of artificial hair. Micropigmentation does not require us to incur monthly costs, i.e. in the case of hair systems related to the care and purchase of tapes.
Can I undergo the treatment using microfibers?
Yes. However, it will be necessary to cut the hair and create a new hairstyle from scratch on a completely bald scalp. Such a hairstyle will allow you to play sports, swim or walk in the rain and sun without fear.
Does the scalp require special care after a series of treatments?
After the treatment, avoid excessive exposure of the head to the sun and deliberate sunbathing because UV radiation shortens the life of micropigmentation and can lead to its damage. It is recommended to use a cream with a UV 50 sunscreen.
