Does Scalp Micropigmentation Hurt? | Hair loss Saskatoon

If your considering Scalp Micropigmentation you are probably wondering if it hurts, and if so how much.

Depending on which procedure you are getting there are two different types of pain management that we use. For the HR procedure we use a lidocaine cream that is applied to the scalp and left on for a period of time before the procedure is started. For the density treatment we use a lidocaine spray applying it multiples times before and during the procedure.


It is important to remember that when we do Scalp Micropigmentation we are only entering the upper layer of your skin. This means that we aren’t going deep enough to cause bleeding. That being said pain is fairly minimal but does differ between each individual person. We would say its more of an uncomfortable feeling and not so much a feeling of pain. Some people say it is completely painless and others say it is a bit painful. It all depends on your own personal pain tolerance. We strive to make this as least painful as we possibly can to make your experience a positive one.
