Tricopigmentation, the non-surgical treatment to cover hair loss, performed by expert Y. Feriduni. TCP consists in injecting microscopic deposits of pigment in the scalp tissue with the purpose to conceal bald areas of the scalp, diffuse thinning or imperfections caused by hair loss or scarring. This technique embodies the simulation of natural hair bulbs to create an optical coverage. Tricopigmentation is reversible, hypoallergenic and biocompatible thanks to the composition of the specific pigments that are used.
The specific dot technique and the natural ash color guarantee an almost perfect replication of the natural hair pattern and reflection. The overall longevity of tricopigmentation depends on the areas of treatment, the individual age, skin characteristics, complexion, immune system of the patient as well as external factors (sun exposure). The hairline design, treatment homogeneity and harmony with the existing hair are also very essential factors in order to reach a very natural looking result. A tricopigmentation is basically performed in 3 sessions, the first and second session are performed on 2 consecutive days and the third session is executed 20-30 days after the second session. A tricopigmentation usually takes between 2 and 4 hours. In case of a full scalp reconstruction the treatment might take longer.
In case of patients with lack of donor material, tricopigmentation could complement hair restoration surgery in several ways. By increasing the overall density given by a hair transplant surgery (density effect), by filling in the remaining recipient area after a hairline reconstruction or even by reducing the white dot visibility after multiple FUE sessions.
