Frequently asked questions

  • Will hair grow after Scalp Micropigmentation treatment?

    No, because it is a medical tattoo that imitates hair follicles to create a natural illusion, and the procedure consists of introducing pigment into the superficial layer of the skin.

  • Why would I use SMP if hair does not grow anymore?

    This procedure is created for people who feel comfortable with short hair, have been tired of relying on various pills/supplements or other products for camouflaging baldness or hair loss, or for those who do not want to use surgical procedures to regain their hairline back. People who cannot use hair transplants or people who want to mask their scars, including people who have lost their hair loss race. Any of these categories are in safe hands at Hair O’Dot.

  • How many sessions are there needed for a complete treatment?

    Human head has an amazing number of 200 hair follicles per square centimeter. Not surprisingly, it usually takes at least three treatment sessions to get the desired result on a head, usually bald. We apply a light pigment during session 1. In session 2 we adjust the color to get a perfect fit with natural follicles (sometimes using even 2-3 pigment shades to get the perfect result), adding density and giving a natural look to the hairline. In the following sessions, we focus on completing the layout and adding details.

  • How will I look after a SMP treatment?

    You can expect an instantly visible result of the hairline, as well as a certain redness, which usually lasts only a few days. Typically, up to four weeks before the pigments are reduced to their natural and finite size, pigmented dots will look darker than planned, and afterwards giving you the natural look you want. All our treatments include 2-3 sessions, the result being improved with each session as each new layer is added to build density and color that will end in a perfect and natural result.

  • What is the training and qualifications of the practitioner?

    Andra Dascălu, our specialist, was hired and trained by the company which is the innovator of the Scalp Micropigmentation Technology internationally. At the company’s main headquarters in England she worked for 4 years with hundreds of clients and thousands of sessions. Thanks to her passion and dedication she was also a trainer in the UK, New York and Dubai. During her career, she has also achieved Level 4 in Scalp Micropigmentation, the highest level that can be achieved in this field, with a diploma issued by the UK Government on the basis of her personal portfolio and theoretical and practical knowledge in the field. She is the only one in Romania who has this distinction. In addition, the multitude of online, national and international testimonials offers transparency in the quality of her work. In Romania, Andra Dascălu is the only practitioner who owns the largest treatments self portfolio.

  • How fast can I benefit from the Scalp Micropigmentation procedure?

    We think it’s a very important decision in life. Although we are convinced that you will love the results, we insist that you have a minimum 24-hour thinking period between consultation and treatment.

  • How long do I have to wait between sessions?

    During our free consultation, our practitioner will create a customized package for each case, depending on how many sessions the client needs. Sessions will normally take place as follows: Initial Consultation which is free, where you can find all the information you need and where the pigment test is done. The first session will be held at least 24 hours after the free consultation, for the you have time to decide whether SMP is for you or not. The second session will take place 10-14 days after the end of the first session. The third session will be held after 1 month – 1 month and a half from the second session. The fourth session will take place in 6-9 months’ time, only if necessary, and the rest of the corrections afterwards, when you think fit. Consultations and treatment sessions are based on programming only.

  • Why is there any need for a consultation?

    During the free consultation, you have the opportunity to ask our specialist all your questions and express all your concerns. During the consultation, we also get to know each other and complete a medical history to provide the results we want. There will also be a 5-minute pigment test which insures us that you will not have unwanted side effects during the sessions. There has been no such situation so far, but we want to keep up this trend.

  • How long will the SMP treatment last?

    The treatment was created with the intention of being permanent, but, as any tattoo, it will need retouching. We recommend that corrections be planned once every 2-5 years, depending on how you care for the scalp, the sun being the number one enemy which can spoil your hair’s appearance.

  • I was scarred by hair transplants; can they be camouflaged by Scalp Micropigmentation?

    Yes, we can camouflage any scars (except the keloid ones), no matter how they have been made, so you can wear your hair as short as you want.

  • What warrantees do you provide for the treatments?

    We offer a free session, valid for one year from the last session. If you want slight changes or you notice an area that should be insisted on, just call us and we’ll schedule the session you need. For more details, see the “Hair O’Dot Guarantee” section in “About Us” chapter.

  • Will the color of the pigment change over time?

    At Hair O’Dot we work with the latest techniques in the field, implementing international standards in the treatments we offer. The pigment is also an organic non-acrylic based one, being awarded for the best pigment in the Scalp Micropigmentation industry. We have customers who, after years, are still very pleased with our results.

  • How painful is the procedure?

    Pain is subjective, but most of our clients describe the pain in the process as a bearable one, more a disturbance than an actual pain. The discomfort that occurs during the treatment passes in a very short time along with the removal of the needle from the skin.

  • How often will I have to get a haircut?

    Our customers prefer a shaved hair, which would be a haircut at 2- 3 days. Haircutting can be done by any method, either with a blade, shaver, clipper etc., and the treatment will not be affected and will not take longer than 5 minutes. If the hair grows more, the result will be visible due to the lack of homogeneity.

  • How hard is treatment to be maintained?

    It is not difficult at all; it does not impose you a lifestyle and does not bind you to a series of medication for life. The first few days after the session you shall avoid excessive sweating in the scalp area, salt water, swimming in pools and staying under the sun without a protective cream. And as far as long-term maintenance is concerned, it takes 5 minutes to trim and apply a 50+ sunscreen. It’s so simple!

  • If I want to change my hair’s look or give up treatment?

    We have not had a single client to this day wanting to give up treatment. However, if you want to remove the pigment from the skin it is possible by laser. The process is similar to that used for tattooing, except the fact that, in the case of Scalp Micropigmentation, the pigment is stored in the second layer of skin, making it easy-to- remove in just a few laser sessions.

  • How much does it cost?

    The price of the entire treatment varies depending on the surface, condition of the scalp and other factors. The price is divided by the number of sessions, and in each session a part of the treatment-related sum is paid. The price is part of a package to be communicated personally to you, being based on our estimations.
