Often before anyone chooses to undergo any type of cosmetic procedure, the question most commonly on their mind is “Will it hurt?” Pain is a big issue for many people, and many people have such low pain tolerances that they may choose to skip out on a cosmetic procedure if they know it can be the source of a considerable amount of pain.
In response to the issue of hair loss, many people have chosen to go through a scalp micropigmentation procedure, as opposed to more traditional treatments such as hair transplant surgery or specialized pills or medications.
Scalp micropigmentation, for those unfamiliar with it, is a process by which pigments are applied to the scalp to fill in the hairline. According to Jackson SMP, For those who have completely lost their hair, scalp micropigmentation can be applied so that it creates the allusion that one has recently shaved their head.
Now for the question you came here for — does it hurt?
It is important to keep in mind that everyone has a different pain tolerance. Not one person experiences the pain the same way as another person.
That being said, many people who have gone through the scalp micropigmentation process describe the treatment’s pain level as being very mild. If pain every becomes an issue for you during your treatment, you can ask your technician to take short, periodic breaks during your procedure.
Additionally, you can ask your doctor to prescribe a prescription pain reliever to help you ease the pain. However, those who do elect to take this type of medication before their procedure should arrange for someone to drive their home following the treatment as painkillers can massively impair one’s driving abilities.
