What Micropigmentation?




MSMP is the newest cosmetic procedure used in Europe and America and is very popular among patients because of its effectiveness and quick results. Immediately after the procedure, the effect of high density of hair is visually created. And the simplicity of its implementation (non-traumatic and painless) makes MSMP even more attractive.
The MSMP technique is the application of an individually selected pigment to the scalp, imitating the 3D illusion of short hair. MSMP is shown to men and women not only in cases of visible hair loss (indications to the procedure), but also, if desired, significantly increase the density of the existing hair.

scalp micropigmentation
The skin of the head differs from other parts of the skin of our body with an abundant amount of sebaceous, perspiring glands, as well as a higher level of blood circulation, which allows it to nurture a large amount of hair. Pigmenting on the scalp requires a special technique, an MSMP device and a specially developed pigment.

ATTENTION! The MSMP procedure should in no case be confused with tattooing or tattooing on the skin.

Side effects of tattooing / tattooing of the scalp or face (eyebrows, mustaches, beard) performed in tattoo parlors and some clinics that do not know the MSMP technique is the pigment change to blue or red (since not a natural pigment is used), but Also the fusion of the pigment into large spots on the scalp (due to differences in techniques, the diameter of the needle used, the use of cutting tools , etc. ) and the appearance of allergic reactions.


When conducting the MSMP procedure at the HFE clinic you will get a tremendous effect immediately after the procedure without side effects and allergies. And the pigment chosen for you will not lose its brightness and will not change coloring within 3-5 following years.


The MSMP method is developed and widely used in Europe. The pigment used in the procedure is non-toxic, natural, corresponds to European standards for its use on the scalp. The application of the pigment is made by a needle 0.1 mm in diameter to a depth of 1.5 mm using a specially developed MSMP device in Europe.

The procedure is performed in the HFE clinic by specialists trained in England and received the corresponding MSMP training certificate.

Before the procedure, you get a free consultation with the test of pigment compliance to your scalp.

You should also know that due to the fact that MSMP is not traumatic, your own hair is not injured. That is, when performing the MSMP procedure, the needle that is injected with the pigment works in higher layers of the skin than the follicles of your own hair. This allows for a short time to combine the procedure of HFE hair transplantation with scalp micropigmentation.

The procedure is painless and does not require the use of local anesthesia.

How do you get to perform Micropigmentation of Lips successful?

The area of the lips is a fairly more complicated for the application of permanent makeup compared to the other regions of the face, since the labial mucosa is a region of high concentration of vascularizaciones, in which, the fixing of the pigment is less stable, and so the micropigmentation of the labial mucosa can present notable differences compared to the profiling, propensity to disappear quickly (in a few days) or to present a tone too clear.

Also, the region of the labial mucosa may present dehydration, giving rise to peeling or a thin layer of skin slightly desadherida of the surface, which can lead to a treatment of false pigmentation, fading of the permanent makeup , as the skin is removing the natural way.

The “microblading” allows for both shape as to fill out the brow in those points in which it becomes necessary, without great assaults to the skin, and with a finish that goes unnoticed completely. The secret is the technique of the “hair to hair”, which allows a more precise and custom of the stroke, getting a result very natural.

The first thing that will make the professional, before starting with the technique itself is to take a series of measurements of the eyebrows, to define the shape more flattering. For this you will need to consider the shape of the face and its features, in addition to the natural shape of each eyebrow.
  2. Once you have the measures of reference appropriate, it is performed a simulation with pencil so that the client can see how the end result will be.
  3. You choose the colour of pigment is most appropriate taking into account the natural hair, the color of the skin and eyes. It is normal that after the immediate application, the result is a few shades darker than the desired, but what is certain is that with the passing of the days and the healing, the tone will be settling down and correcting.
  4. Applies a topical anesthesia in the form that cream and let sit for a half hour. Those who have experienced ensure that the incisions are noticed only as a small inconvenience.

Permanent eyeliner

Permanent Eyeliner

Benefits of Permanent Makeup

There are not many benefits associated with micropigmentation . The American Academy of Micropigmentation lists the following benefits: The convenience of not having to apply makeup daily that, in the long run, can save you about a hundred hours a year. It also eliminates the risk that the patient will suffer possible allergic reactions caused by the traditional makeup. For patients who would normally have difficulty applying make-up (for example, patients with arthritis), this would no longer be a problem. The patient could always wear a “perfect” makeup. Irregularities or minor facial imperfections, such as an uneven lip contour line, could be corrected.

Medical issues related to long hours of computer use or LASIK surgery may also be reasons for wanting to undergo micropigmentation . An active outdoor lifestyle may require the patient to choose this option, since the application of makeup on a daily basis can take away a lot of time. Micropigmentation can also give you a “natural look” that is difficult to achieve with traditional make-up. Loss of hair on the eyebrows, hair birth and sideburns can be compensated with micropigmentation. Skin discolorations and scars are issues that can be addressed with micropigmentation.

The characteristics of the patient

An ideal candidate for micropigmentation is a person who enjoys good health and has realistic expectations about the results you can get with this procedure. It is important to be very specific about what you want and the exact color of the desired effect, for example a special lip color. There is no age limit to be able to apply permanent makeup. Some older people with good skin quality may be correct candidates for micropigmentation .

However, women under the age of 35 are not usually good candidates, as they do not usually feel comfortable with a make-up for a lifetime. Also, women with darker skin tones can not be good candidates either, since darker lip pigmentation can prevent colors from being seen correctly. In addition, those women who spend a lot of time in tanning booths or under sun exposure, do not usually encourage them to undergo micropigmentation because pigmentary colors can change.

Micropigmentation procedure

The micropigmentation procedure involves not only the surface of the skin, known as the epidermis, but also the layer beneath the surface. This layer is called the dermis. The reason for this is that the surface of the skin usually removes dead skin cells, thereby causing an alteration in the coloring results of the procedure. Therefore, the color or pigment is tattooed on both layers of the skin. Initially you should discuss with your doctor the clarity or darkness of the pigment. Usually patients choose a lighter color and then schedule another treatment to darken that color.

The process of applying permanent make-up is generally more comfortable than what is believed. This is the result of improvements in anesthetics that are specifically designed for the micropigmentation process. The duration of the effects of the anesthetic is usually thirty minutes. At that time, the pigment is applied using an electric or manual tool.

Hand tools originate from ancient methods that used sharp instruments to place the pigment under the skin. The hand tools have been replaced mostly by machined equipment such as the cosmetic pen or rotating pen and by a coil machine . Even so, there are an increasing number of specialists who use the hand tool method because they believe it offers greater control, comfort and comfort for the patient. Since sterilization is of paramount importance, needles must be provided by manufacturers in pre-sterilized packages. During the procedure, the tool uses tiny, biologically neutral implants to inject the pigment granules beneath the surface of the skin.

Once the micropigmentation procedure is finished , the surgeon will give you instructions for your aftercare and will send you back home. Normally you will schedule a follow-up appointment for possible retouching.

Recovery period

Later care kit may include eye drops , cold compresses and ointments. You can expect some sign of inflammation, especially if you have undergone a procedure that involves lip coloration or the application of an eyeliner. This effect is usually noticed more during the first day after the procedure. The cure time consists of the appearance of a variable coloration and can last for several days.

The patient can apply cold compresses or ice packs to reduce discomfort and the treated area should be completely protected from the sun’s rays. For those who suffer from chronic cold sores, your doctor can help prevent these reactions with a number of prescription medications.

In about four or six weeks, you’ll have a follow-up visit with your cosmetic surgeon . Most micropigmentation procedures require more than one visit. The second visit will be similar to the first procedure, but generally less time will be needed, although the recovery time will be the same. Sometimes, a third procedure may not be necessary and the only thing left for the surgeon is to take a picture of the “after” patient. If an additional session is performed, the surgeon may need to re-take pictures for you to store in your file.

Note : Be sure to inform any doctor who visits you afterwards that you have undergone a micropigmentation treatment . There are certain medical considerations and restrictions that should be applied to certain future procedures, such as magnetic resonance imaging .

Permanent Makeup Risks

All cosmetic procedures carry a number of risks. Commonly they may include infection, which can be treated with antibiotics, allergic reactions, the formation of keloids and granulomas.

As previously mentioned, micropigmentation is not actually “permanent” in its first results, because with the passage of time it can change color and colors can also be affected by exposure to sunlight.

Permanent makeup price

Micropigmentation can cost an average of between € 280 and € 480 per procedure. The rates depend on the country where you perform the micropigmentation and the qualifications of the person who performs the procedure. For example, an experienced aesthetic doctor can charge you more than just a technician . Please note that quoted rates may only cover medical costs and do not cover all miscellaneous expenses. Full legal costs should be clear during your first visit.

Neither Social Security nor Mutual Insurance cover the cost of micropigmentation procedures , for that reason, you may want to discuss the issue of funding with your doctor, if necessary.

Possible issues to discuss with your surgeon during the first visit
During your first visit you should discuss various topics with your doctor. To determine if micropigmentation is a safe and appropriate procedure for your particular case. That is why it is important that you seek a board certified doctor as it may be the best option to carry out your plan safely. When you leave the appointment, you should be perfectly clear about all the details of the procedure, including precautions and recommendations for the recovery period. You should also provide your doctor with your complete medical history that reflects all the existing medical conditions and all prescription drugs you are taking.

Keep in mind that the licensing requirements vary from country to country. For example, in California, no license is required to perform a micropigmentation . In other states of the United States they have specific requirements ranging from those of a licensed tattoo artist to those of a licensed medical professional. This can mean an abysmal difference, since one can perform the treatment with only one workshop and the other needs a plastic surgeon’s license .

Be sure to verify the credentials of the person providing the treatment. Some suggestions:

Try to get referrals from previous patients.
Question about the practitioner’s experience, ie, how many procedures of this type has he done in the last year?
Ask for before and after photos
Request information about the equipment and the type of pigmentation that will be used in your case.
Ask the length of the procedure.
In the place where the procedure will be carried out.

What is it?

Permanent makeup is like a tattoo . A tattoo, something particular, that is realized with ultrafine needles at the epidermal level.

Over time and natural skin exfoliation , the pigments are removed and the color is attenuated . It all depends on the speed with which the skin is renewed, the colors that have been used and the lifestyle of the person (the sun, for example, alters the pigments).

What is dermopigmentation or permanent makeup?

Would you encourage yourself to tattoo your eyeliner? Or the eyebrows? We get all the doubts about this technique that maybe you already knew and that saves you many minutes every morning.

manent makeovers are actually “cosmetic tattoos” and are becoming more and more popular. The technique used to make them is dermopigmentation , which is basically the coloring of the skin.

Unlike tattoos, however, dermopigmentation is a subepidermal technique. This means that it does not reach the deepest layer of the skin (the dermis) and therefore is semi permanent; Does not last for life, but after a few years you have to do the process again .


Dermopigmentation is used to improve the physical appearance of people in general. That is to say:

– To correct and mitigate imperfections. For example, when there is not a lot of hair on the eyebrows, either by a bad previous hair removal, by a scar … Or even in parts of the head where there is little hair. It is also used when the shape of the lips, for example, is not symmetrical or are very finite.

– In reparative surgeries , to hide areas blurred by interventions, such as breast auras in cases of tumors.

– As a semi permanent makeup, to look flawless and natural at all times without wasting time every day to apply each product. It is ideal for women who want to enhance some feature, such as the outline of the lips, the outline of the eyes, some mole, etc.


To begin with the process, you must have an interview with the specialist who will do the drawing. In that interview usually, a first preliminary design is made on the skin to see how it would look and choose the right pigments, which vary according to the skin tone.

Once the shape and color of what is to be done is decided, we can submit to the drawing itself. There we apply local anesthesia to eliminate the sensitivity of the area. With a pencil, the lines of the face or area to be treated are defined and then the pigment is applied. The session can last from 30 to 90 minutes , depending on the surface and the level of detail that is required. For example, eyebrows are drawn hair by hair, which can take a long time.

The makeup lasts approximately three to five years , depending on the type of skin, the colored area and the care given (eg, sunscreen).

Likewise, it is necessary to consider that at the month of the treatment, it is necessary to do a retouch, to finish fixing the color. After that, most specialists do the necessary amount of retouching without charge.

The cost of dermopigmentation sessions varies a great deal depending on the different specialists and depending on the area chosen, but to get an idea, the eyelid can cost between $ 2000 and $ 3000, including retouching.


Luckily, it is possible to eliminate what is tattooed on the skin with a good aesthetic result with laser treatments. Although it is necessary to take into account that even with this technique can not guarantee a perfect result. In addition, it is necessary to consider the area where the permanent makeup or tattoo was performed. The eyes are a very delicate and difficult area, for example.

Clarification: Pregnant women, cancer patients, patients with diabetes, patients with coagulation problems can not be given dermopigmentation. Neither can those who have active herpes in the area to be treated.
