WHAT IS HAIR FOLLICLE SIMULATION?
Hair Follicle Simulation also known as HFS was developed by the method’s inventor Moshe Alul. The underlying concept of this technology involves penetrating pigment into the scalp to create the illusion of short hair follicles. Until recently, the standard method for introducing pigment into the scalp was by insertion, using only a single needle, in a long, painful and time-consuming process that produced average to below average results. The NPM patented revolutionary roller has since replaced the use of the needles and shortening treatment time by 90%, with remarkably accurate appearance as a hair follicle. This procedure is now exclusive to Sulé Loggenberg Academy & Clinic.
THE PROCESS OF MICRO PIGMENTATION
We penetrate through the epidermal layer using a needle that inserts the pigments. This layer of cells changes every few weeks, so this technique will gradually fade, but can last up to four years. Unlike a tattoo, which uses a needle that penetrates the layer of sub-cutis, the layer we penetrate has no regeneration of pigment cells so Hair Follicle Simulation can last for a long time. There are several things the patient should avoid the day of application: wetting the treated area, wiping it, sun exposure, scratching, peeling and using creams or using other materials on the treated area. Any further visit will improve the look of the scalp and hair simulation will integrate with natural hair. The number of treatments will vary from patient to patient depending on his/her scalp. To preserve the final result the application should be repeated with emphasis on one application every year. In the case where we are treating a scar, the reaction is different because scar tissue reacts different compared to non-scarred skin tissue and therefore it requires a greater number of treatments and the use of a slightly darker shade of pigment. In addition, the patient should come back within a few months for a session that strengthens the fast fading pigment in the scar area. Treatment duration ranges from 30 minutes to two hours depending on the treated area.
