FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it detectable?

Scalp micropigmentation has become such an effective hair loss solution because of its consistently natural and undetectable results. F.U.R. Scalp micropigmentation prides itself on the ability to seamlessly replicate each individual hair follicle to create a perfect match for each client.

How many treatments should I expect?

Scalp micropigmentation should never be considered a one treatment process. Most clients can expect between 2 and 3 sessions to complete their treatment depending on the extent of hair loss or scarring. These treatments are usually spaced about 10 to 14 days apart.

How long do the results last?

Scalp micropigmentation is non-invasive and requires no down time. In most cases, you will not need to take any extended time away from work, school, or other functions. After treatment it is common to notice slight redness on the scalp for 24 to 48 hours after a session. Clients are also allowed to wear hats or headwear should they feel the need.

How do I choose a hairline?

If you are unsure of what style or type of hairline will work for you, your treatment specialist will be there to help. With artistic experience on how to fit a hairline to head shape and age, your specialist can help recommend what’s best. Over the course of your sessions you can also tweak and adjust the hairline for a perfect result.

If I still have hair, can I keep them long?

Depending on the extent of your sparsity, certain clients are able to maintain a certain length.
Scalp micropigmentation is used to add density to thinning areas, thus hiding the scalp. For people prone to a strong hair loss or where the density is very thin, it is recommended to keep your hair short.

Can Scalp Micropigmentation camouflage my transplant scar?

Yes! By replicating tiny hair follicles inside the scarring and blending the color around the scarring area, transplant and surgical scars can see massive improvement in concealment.

Does the procedure hurt?

For most of F.U.R. Scalp micropigmentation clients, the pain minimal and it’s consistently less painful than traditional tattoos. After your session, you won’t experience any further discomfort.

Will Scalp Micropigmentation work with gray hair?

Yes, those with gray hair can still benefit from the scalp micropigmentation procedure. First, most clients are recommended to cut their hair to a short buzzed length. When this is done, gray hair does not appear as gray because the hair root itself is darker. Hair only shows gray as it gets longer. Second, we use a gray-scale pigment that can be adjusted in shade to blend with lighter hair tones. We simply create a lighter dilution for blending into the existing gray hairs.

Is the treatment affordable?

Scalp micropigmentation is affordable and accessible. The cost varies on the level of hair loss, which is different for each client. To get an proper evaluation of your situation there is a couple of options available to you. 1- Come and see us for a free (and no obligation) consultation, this way you will get to see first hand some results and we can also create a simulation directly on your head so you can get a preview of what your new look could be. 2- If you can’t make it to us, you can send us a few pictures and we can send you back an estimate.

Do you offer financing?

Yes! We offer the possibility of, interest-free, financing on 3-6 or 12 months. We also accept
Visa, MasterCard, American Express as well as debit cards or bank transfer.

What makes F.U.R. Scalp micropigmentation different from other providers?

F.U.R. Scalp micropigmentation was the first clinic to use this technique in Canada back in 2010. So far, we have done over 2700 scalp micropigmentation session and we are trained by the leader in his field, M. Matthew Iulo from Scalp Micro USA. Aside from experience, we pride ourselves on a more personal, client-first experience. From the moment of first contact you will receive a high level of attention to your case.

What equipment is used for a Scalp Micropigmentation procedure?

The equipment used for a scalp treatment is considered Derma Medical equipment. These equipment includes a digital power source, a hand-piece, and a disposable micro needles for the insertion of pigment in the skin. We use a different equipment than standard tattoo artists to ensure the deposits are delicately placed at the appropriate depth in the skin.

Can I still use Propecia and/or Rogaine after my treatment?

Clients can continue using Propecia during and after their scalp pigmentation procedure. Rogaine (topical minoxidil) should be suspended during the course of treatment and for 30 days post your final session. This is to ensure the proper healing and settling of pigment without interference of the chemicals found in Rogaine foam.

I see many Scalp Micropigmentation providers on the internet, how do I choose the right one?

The growth of scalp micropigmentation has been tremendous over the last few years. This means a lot more clinics, but also means prospective patients need to do their research! Look for clinics and technicians that have been operating for several years in scalp micropigmentation, have a vast and dynamic portfolio of results, and help answer any questions you have. It is always a good idea to schedule an in-person consultation (free) if you are unsure, in order to eliminate those providers you just don’t feel comfortable with.
