Temporary tricopigmentation is a kind of treatment that allows to cover and hide hair loss. This technique involves the creation, through the use of specific needles and instrumentation, of a large number of point shaped micro-deposits of pigments under the skin. This way the optical effect achieved is of a head full of growing hair. It is a technique that allows covering the hair loss by conforming the bald areas with those that still show the presence of hair.



Temporary tricopigmentation, as clearly suggested by the name, has a limited duration through the time since it is performed with re-absorbable pigments and since the deposit of pigment under the skin is placed at a superficial level. In particular, this technique is different from the corresponding permanent tricopigmentation, that instead never fades.

There are several reasons that can push a person interested in tricopigmentation to turn to the temporary alternative, see here below the main ones:

  • First of all, it has to be underlined that with “temporary” we refer to a duration of a few years. In fact, it is necessary that around 3 years pass from the initial treatment for it to totally disappear. In order to keep it perfect as it is right after the treatment, you need to undergo some touch ups sessions, on average once every six months or once a year. Therefore, it is temporary, yes, but this does not mean that it has to be retouched continuously. Moreover, you do not have to forget that also permanent tricopigmentation requires to touch up sessions, even if less frequently. In fact, the result initially achieved with permanent tricopigmentation will not remain identical and perfect forever, but it will tend to modify itself and to lose definition, just like a normal tattoo would.
  • Temporary tricopigmentation can be adapted to the patient through time. Tastes can change, as well as physiological features. This means that a look that fits well when you are, for example, 20 years old, could then be unpleasant 30 years later. With temporary tricopigmetation, you can keep modifying all that is necessary in order to always maintain a decorous appearance, always suitable for your age, while with the permanent one you will be bound to the design chosen the first time.
  • As mentioned above, tastes can change with time. This can also mean that at some point you will get tired of tricopigmentation and so you will want to remove it, for example when your hair will turn white. If you choose the temporary version it will be enough to stop retouching it and it will fade by itself, while if you choose the permanent one it will be necessary to undergo expensive and unpleasant laser sessions.
  • With time, temporary tricopigmentation tends to fade evenly. If you do not want it to disappear, you will undergo touch up sessions that will create an even better optical result given by the combination of the new well defined dots with the old ones slightly blurred below. This particularly realistic effect cannot be achieved with permanent tricopigmentation.
