Who Is a Candidate for Micropigmentation?


Many patients who undergo cancer treatment experience hair loss. This is a common side effect of chemotherapy, targeted therapy, radiation therapy, and bone marrow transplant. While working to kill the cancer cells, the hair cells are also damaged.

This hair loss occurs all over the body. The medical term, alopecia, means hair loss.

Once the treatment ends, the hair regrows for most people. Yet, it may be thinner or leave bald patches. If your treatment required surgery to the head or brain, you will have a permanent scar.

The good news is that there are treatment options for many of these problems. Scalp medical tattoos or scalp micropigmentation can improve these side effects.

The International Journal of Dermatology examined how satisfied patients were with this treatment. They reported patient satisfaction scores of 4.8 on a 5-point Likert score with 5 being the highest.
