NY Scalp Shading FAQ’s

The Color: Your technician will evaluate your scalp and hair color at the beginning of each session and choose a color a color to best match your natural hair.

Pigmentation: NY Semi Permanent Makeup uses a single acupuncture needle that gently vibrates on the dermal layers of the skin depositing a mineral-based pigment into the scalp until the desired color is achieved. Individual hairs are layered on the skin creating a completely natural look.

Scalp Shading usually takes four (1-hour) sessions per 25 square inch (5”x5”) area. Each session is scheduled 2-3 weeks apart.

  • Arrive to your appointment 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment, well rested and relaxed.

  • Bring a hat to wear after the procedure as your hair will be messy and you will need to wash it as soon as possible that day.

Yes, actually it is encouraged you go straight home and wash your hair!

The level of discomfort varies from person to person. A strong topical numbing cream is used.

Maintenance appointments are optional. If you do not maintain NY, it will completely fade away over time.

Everyone maintenance schedule is different based on how fast the skin exfoliates.

Some clients come in every few months for a touch up sessions and some only need to come in annually.

Yes! NY’s Scalp shading procedure is completely safe so you will not lose any of your natural or transplanted hair from the scalp shading. Scalp shading does not damage the hair follicles in any way, will not cause any hair loss. Because it is so artfully applied, with surgical-quality fine instruments, NY can even camouflage scars created by hair transplants.

One of the major advantages of NY is that it is semi-permanent – it last up to 3 years on the skin. So if you do not maintain it (have it refreshed with NY maintenance treatments every year or two), it will eventually fade away completely. In this way, if you choose to shave your head, or lose your hair otherwise, there will not be any traces of NY remaining on your skin. This contrasts with tattoos or other forms of permanent makeup, which will eventually turn a bluish color and lasts forever.

This is one reason NY is preferred for eyebrows and lips. However gradually, our face changes with age, weight, gravity and — especially for women, styles change

When your skin tans, the mineral-based pigment applied into the skin will not change color or tan with the surrounding skin.

We advise our scar camouflage clients to maintain a constant skin color throughout the year so that their NY makeup will maintain the best color match for as long as possible. However, some clients will schedule a maintenance appointment around the time that they get a tan in early summer so that we can match their NY to that tanned skin color. As the tan lightens up a bit during the winter, NY will gradually fade a little so that it will also lighten up.
