The entire healing process only takes about seven days though there will be slight variations depending on the patient.
Does Scalp Micropigmentation hurt?
Scalp micropigmentation can hurt, but the pain is usually very mild. From scale 1 – 10 around 3 -4.
How long will SMP treatment take?
The amount of time needed for an SMP treatment varies but the typical first session lasts from three to five hours, while the further sessions usually take less time as the correct blend of density and darkness is achieved on the scalp.
What pigments do you use?
My pigment is totally organic, natural, plant-based and even vegan-friendly.
Will SMP micropigmentation fade?
Some initial softening may occur as your natural shade is achieved. Providing that you follow the correct after-care, including use of sun-screen, the effect of SMP will be adequately maintained. The answer is YES, the pigment will fade over time, and a touch-up is therefore necessary every few years.
What if I want to change my look or even reverse the process?
Any removal process would be similar to that of a tattoo with the exception that micro pigmentation is only situated within the 2nd dermal skin layer, a conventional tattoo is almost twice as deep. A full reversal could easily be achieved with a laser treatment. We envisage our clients may wish to change their look, perhaps soften a hairline or maybe even recede slightly as an individual becomes older. It is possible to soften a hairline with only 20 minutes of laser treatment.
Do you have laser removal machine to correct bad SMP procedure?
We do not have a laser removal machine but we can refer you to a laser technician near our clinic whose correction before treatment is needed.
