I went to see Britney at Permanent Effects to address the possibility of having scalp micropigmentation done. As a male with thinning hair, I decided to shave my head several years ago. The problem was, even when shaving my head, there was an evident variation between where hair still grew and where it didn’t. When I first shaved my head, I had looked into the possibility of scalp micropigmentation (replicating the appearance of hair follicles via a tattooing process), but what I was seeing left me leery. At the time, it didn’t seem the process had been refined enough to instill confidence that I’d I’d end up with a lasting, natural looking result.
A friend pointed me toward Permanent Effects and I’m so thankful she did. Britney is remarkable in her knowledge of precision tattoo work and she is on the cutting edge of the latest techniques in not only permanent makeup, but also the very exciting field of scalp micropigmentation. The technique they use is leaps and bounds beyond anything I’ve seen before. The needles are extremely fine, the pigments are top-notch and the technical expertise is first rate.
I decided to move ahead with the process. Britney was so thorough in explaining how the procedure would work. We discussed things like color, density and what I ultimately hoped to achieve. She was wonderfully patient and completely understanding in addressing all of my questions and concerns. During our first session, she explained she would take a very conservative approach which was brilliant because it gave me an opportunity to adapt to my new and improved look and also offer input moving forward.
The result is nothing short of stunning. My wife marvels at the fact that there is virtually no difference in appearance between my own hair follicles and the ones that Britney so perfectly recreated. Having endured years of anxiety over thinning hair, I literally welled up with emotion as I saw this amazing transformation. It’s taken years off of my appearance and given me a newfound confidence…I swear, I even feel younger!
For anyone, man or woman, dealing with thinning hair, I would urge you to visit Permanent Effects and see what they can do for you. These ladies are compassionate and so dedicated to their craft. You’ll be in great hands.
