Permanent Tricopigmentation | Temporary? Which one to choose?


What might be the limits of permanent tricopigmentation and temporary tricopigmentation when hair turns white?
This is a question that might arise should you want to choose between permanent or temporary tricopigmentation.

Very often we are asked what might happen in case you have had a tricopigmentation done and as the years go by your hair turns white..


We can analyze two types of scenarios:

(a) Permanent Tricopigmentation: A solution created to last over time.
b)Temporary Tricopigmentation: A solution created to have a limited duration in time.


Permanent Tricopigmentation, mild disappearance, high initial cost, low maintenance.

Permanent Trichopigmentation promises to be non-reversible. In permanent tricopigmentation, pigments with an average particle size greater than 25microns are used so that they cannot be attacked by the body.

Permanent Tricopigmentation has the advantage of

“not having to be retouched except at greater intervals than temporary tricopigmentation (a touch-up is required every few years).”

The disadvantages of this technique are mechanical. The Permanent Trichopigmentation does not go away anymore if not with laser..

In this case, remember that it will need to be retouched to be always at its best every few years but it cannot be removed except with the q-switched laser. In the permanent tricopigmentation, of course, is not contemplated the hypothesis of modification to the hairline elevation or color change.


Temporary Tricopigmentation, total and progressive disappearance, low initial cost, medium maintenance.

Temporary Tricopigmentation promises to be reversible.

Pigments with a particle size of less than 15microns are used so that they can be ejected from the skin.

these can be expelled from the body through the process of phagocytosis.

It has the advantage of maintaining a certain freedom of choice (one might require a series of treatments and then have it disappear) and of ensuring that within a few years trichopigmentation can follow the physiological changes of each individual. In this case, receding hairline appears to be a less problematic variable because if the hair were to become all white, it would be enough to wait for the temporary tricopigmentation to disappear.

The disadvantages of this technique are logistical and economic.

Not everyone is willing or inclined to have to do one or two treatments per year and to plan an expenditure that varies from € 250.00 to € 1,000.00 per year depending on the operator chosen and the area to be treated.


Tricopigmentation and white hair, in the case of permanent and temporary tricopigmentation.

With permanent Trichopigmentation, in case your hair becomes white you should resort to laser or a systematic dyeing of your parietal and occipital hair. With temporary Trichopigmentation you will not have to resort to laser but wait for the natural fading process of the treatment.


Is it better to have permanent or temporary tricopigmentation?

Economically we can say that permanent tricopigmentation turns out to becheaper than temporary tricopigmentation if we analyze a medium to long time horizon, more expensive in the initial phase. Temporary Tricopigmentation is, at least at the beginning, on average cheaper than the permanent..

We can not give you a dry answer, however, and each user will have to carefully evaluate which of the two techniques to adopt for practicality, affordability, aesthetic performance and foresight.

In this case the client was advised against further maintenance,

so that it begins to fade, thus embracing the level of physiological incanutimento.
