FAQS – SCALP
How many sessions will I need?
Usually 2-4 procedures. The first procedure is to build up. The 2nd procedure (7-10 days after initial) is to build density. A third and fourth session is only needed if the client wants to build it up more density. You rather build up slowly then overdo it.
Is the treatment painful?
