Q&A: How Effective is Scalp Tattooing?



A Scalp Tattoo - Is it as effective as hair loss treatments for hiding a bald spot?Question: I have recently been reading about scalp tattooing. I was wondering whether you undertake this, and maybe your thoughts about the effectiveness of the process or whether you would recommend this?

Answer: The Belgravia Centre does not offer or recommend scalp tattooing. A scalp tattoo is obviously more permanent than using scalp cover up products such as powders or nanogen. However, as to the effectiveness of a tattoo to cover up hair loss, it is advisable to consider medicated treatments before undertaking such a procedure. A tattoo will last for life and if you continue to lose your hair (which the large majority of men do as a result of genetics), then the tattoo will look increasingly unnatural. Hair loss treatments, on the other hand, can prevent further hair loss and restore your lost hair allowing you to maintain a natural looking head of hair for as long as you choose.

Other options that we would recommend over and above a tattoo are hair surgery or non-surgical hair replacement.

If you would like to find out which treatment method is best suited for your hair, the Belgravia Centre offers a free consultation, either in its London-based clinic or via the website. A specialist will diagnose the hair loss and discuss the best treatment options with you. To book an appointment, call 020 7730 6666 or message the centre. For a home use treatment course via mail order, simply submit the online diagnostic form and a treatment advisor will contact you.
