There have been a few questions raised recently about scalp shading treatments being offered by one or two competitors. For those who aren’t familiar with the term, it is what we call the process of shading the skin to reduce the contrast between the hair, and the balding scalp. The client would typically keep their hair at full length, hence why the option is attractive to many people at first glance.Unfortunately the issues have always been the same – our competitors have been proven to not replicate the follicles effectively enough, instead opting for what looks more or less like a painted effect to colour the scalp. This is fine in the short term, but causes a real issue in the long term when the hair continues to thin out and the scalp becomes more visible. To make matters worse, we know for a fact that these companies use tattoo inks. These are not easily removed by laser, and are highly likely to discolour over the long term. The results of such treatments are shown below.
