The tricopigmentation process differs from regular scalp micropigmentation, both in the way the technique is applied, and the effective duration of the completed treatment. This is a specific system developed by Milena Lardi of Beauty Medical in Milan, and is approved by the International Society Of Hair Restoration Surgeons (ISHRS).
Tricopigmentation is applied over 3-4 sessions. The first and second sessions take place 1 week apart, with the third session about a month later. In some cases a fourth session is required to complete the process.
This is a shorter duration form of scalp micropigmentation. The pigments fade significantly after 12 months, and are virtually gone within 18-24 months. Ideal for clients who require flexibility and are unsure about keeping their treatment long term, tricopigmentation must be topped up every 9-12 months to maintain an effective illusion.
