I started losing my hair in the mid-20s and now I’m 30-years-old. Hair thinning has really dropped my confidence level, I even tried many medicines and hair oils for hair regrowth but none of them is effective. A month ago I read an article on hair imitation that is giving back a large number of people their lost happiness and aesthetic appearance. I was very happy that time; there is asolution for my problem.

Micro-needling is pretty similar to tattooing throughSMP. In this treatmentspecial needles are used to induce pigment to a slight depth in the scalp dermis. The customized pigment dye with microdots is implanted into the top layer of the scalp. Each dot is replacing the missing follicles that are filled with pigment dye, the scalps give the illusion of uniform hair.

The process requires special equipment and trained professionals. In the process, every individual shaved hair follicle is repeated with a dot. When applied on the larger surface, it creates an illusion of uniformly shaved head or beard. The ink is implanted into the selected area, natural hair color is matched exactly with pigmentation. Dark shade gives the illusion of three-dimensional head full of hair.

Now let’s discuss aboutthe painful part. The microneedles are used to make insertion to create hair imitation. So, practically it’s a painful process. The needle insertion feels like sharp pinches on the scalp, but people with a low threshold (like me) can’t bear that. To reduce the pain during the procedure, I found out about two numbing creams – LMX 5 or Aspercreme.


LMX-5 Cream contains lidocaine in concentrations of 5% as well as 4%. It is used in different parts of the body to cause numbness or loss of pain for patients having certain medical procedures. It is also used to relieve pain during minor skin procedures and can be used before hair imitation technique. You can apply it six times daily. But always ask your Doctor before applying it.


It is another effective topical anesthetic with a maximum strength of lidocaine (2.7 Ounce). Lidocaine block nerve sensations so that you don’t feel pain during clinical treatments on the skin. This one can also be used during various skin procedures such as hair imitation or other minor surgeries.

Both creams can be used for this surgical procedure, but it’s recommended that your doctor check you closely for any problems or unwanted effects that may be caused by lidocaine. Consult your doctor right away if you have a rash, burning, stinging, swelling, or irritation of your skin after using any of these topical anesthetic creams.
