Shapiro Medical group
Universally regarded as one of the world’s elite hair transplant clinics, Shapiro Medical Group now offers tricopigmentation, a temporary form of scalp micropigmentation, as a standalone or complimentary procedure.
Over the course of nearly 20 years, Shapiro Medical Group has built a stellar reputation in the field of hair restoration. Often referred to as the ‘surgeon’s surgeon’, Shapiro has been the clinic of choice, not only for thousands of American and international clients, but for a significant number of hair transplant physicians who, for obvious reasons, need assistance with their own procedures.
Shapiro Medical Group is home to Dr. Ron Shapiro, his brother Dr. Paul Shapiro and Dr. David Josephitis. Shapiro Medical Group physicians have been invited to lecture and demonstrate advanced surgical techniques at conferences around the world since their inception.
Shapiro Medical Group physicians repeatedly lecture on creating naturalness, hairline design, maximizing density, placing techniques, follicular unit extraction (FUE), and many other hair transplantation surgery topics.
Dr. Ron Shapiro, Dr. Paul Shapiro and Dr. Josephitis are Diplomats of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery (ABHRS), and they are listed on a number of independent consumer advocate websites.
Your tricopigmentation procedure
When you choose Shapiro Medical Group for tricopigmentation, you’re choosing an elite medical establishment with the very highest standards and the best equipment available, anywhere in the world. This is a surgical facility, so no stone has been left unturned to create the safest and most professional environment for your procedure.
You will discuss and create your hairline position, shape and style with Dr. Ron Shapiro, Dr. Paul Shapiro or Dr. David Josephitis, the masters of natural hairline creation. Once your hairline is perfected, your procedure will be conducted by Nicole Large, one of the most requested and respected scalp micropigmentation technicians in North America.
Nicole has dual-trained in both temporary and permanent SMP. She was the first technician in North America to be trained by tricopigmentation innovator Milena Lardi, and has received extensive certified training with HIS Hair Clinic in permanent scalp micropigmentation techniques.
Nicole Large offers knowledge and talent far beyond what you’ll experience at any regular scalp clinic. Drawing upon years of combined experience and boundless expertise, you simply couldn’t be in better hands. It is no surprise that the company has already become one of the world’s most recommended scalp micropigmentation clinics.
In general, any discomfort experienced during a scalp micropigmentation procedure is considered mild, and most patients do not need anesthesia or pain medications. However, everyone has a different pain threshold, level of anxiety and scalp sensitivity.
One of the benefits of having your procedure within a medical facility is the option to request pre-operative sedation (ex: Valium, Xanex) or pain medications (ex: mild narcotics), enabling you to feel more comfortable if needed. In some cases, local anaesthesia (ex: Lidocaine) can be made available to numb the entire scalp, the same way a dentist can numb the mouth before a dental procedure.
As you might expect, the results achieved by the Shapiro team are exceptional. These recent clients bear testament to the remarkable results that can be achieved when tricopigmentation is expertly applied.
Although the majority of tricopigmentation procedures are applied as a standalone solution, one of the advantages of having your procedure at a hair transplant specialist like Shapiro Medical Group is the range of complimentary and alternative options available.
Tricopigmentation, when combined with hair transplant surgery, is a very effective hair loss solution for suitable candidates. However at Shapiro, a wide range of other complimentary options are also available including ACELL/PRP, Liposomal ATP and Vitrase, as well as conventional drug and laser-based solutions.
Bad scalp micropigmentation
As a leading authority in SMP, Shapiro Medical Group is often asked to intervene when a client has received a substandard procedure at another clinic. The Shapiro team is well equipped to assist in such cases, and is usually able to achieve a satisfactory outcome for the patient.
