It’s normal to experience hair fall out. But if you’ve started to notice large clumps of hair collected in your shower drain or a receding hairline, it’s time to take action.


The first signs of hair thinning or hair loss can be an alarming moment for many of us. What’s worse, finding solutions that actually work can be both expensive and confusing. Shampoos, lotions, hair transplants…the options are endless.

If you’re looking for a safe and effective way to tackle the situation head on (no pun intended), here’s one option for you: Scalp Micropigmentation by Monostudio.

So what exactly is Scalp Micropigmentation? Read on to find out more about this innovative hair loss solution in Singapore and how it can help regain your crowning glory!

What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

Monostudio is our go-to place for all our head-to-toe beauty needs – from eyebrows to lashes, lips, and skin. And now, the all-in-one salon has just introduced its brand new Scalp Micropigmentation service.

You already know about brow feathering, which helps to shape and boost the appearance of sparse eyebrows. Similarly, Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-surgical treatment for those suffering from traction alopecia, receding hairlines or thinning hair.


The process involves very fine tattoo ink dots and shading being deposited onto your scalp to mimic hair follicles. This is especially useful for those with thinning hair as the micropigmentation reduces the contrast between the hair and the scalp to make it appear thicker and fuller.

What makes Scalp Micropigmentation suitable for most is that Monostudio’s Seoul-trained esthetician adopts a bespoke approach for every customer. According to each individual’s follicle situation, she will customise the shading and placement of the ink. For instance, if your hairline looks a bit sparse, she will focus on that area for the most natural-looking results.

Does it hurt?

If you are worried about pain, don’t fret. Unlike traditional tattooing or microblading, Scalp Micropigmentation ranks low on the pain factor. That’s because the process uses smaller and thinner needles that will also give a subtle hair-like effect. Numbing cream is also applied to the scalp to help ease any discomfort. And unlike hair transplants, Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-invasive treatment, which means no recovery or down time is needed.

Each session lasts about 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on the size of the area. Although you will be able to see results after just one session, Monostudio recommends a minimum of three sessions to build up to the optimal density and fullness in hair, while giving the scalp time to rest in between sessions.

Natural and lasting effects

Scalp micropigmentation is perfect for low-maintenance folks as its effects last for 3-5 years. Over time, the pigments will fade due to ageing or when regularly exposed to sunlight. Those who perspire profusely and have an oily scalp can opt for yearly touch-ups to freshen up their look and keep their hair looking lush.
