Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) Disasters
Scalp Micropigmentation is a method of para-medical tattooing that is a permanent and non-surgical solution for hair loss. Using proprietary pigment to stimulate follicles, scalp micropigmentation artists can meticulously restore any area of balding with density.?The results are a thicker, more youthful-looking head of hair. In a society where unrealistic expectations of beauty and aesthetics are forced upon every individual, many people may feel a lack of confidence if they do not fit that ?norm.? One of the most common issues people face is a balding, receding hairline, and thinning due to several genetic and biological variables.?Scalp Micropigmentation, or SMP, is a new technique of advanced cosmetic pigmentation and has taken America by storm.??
I can?t tell you how many times I have had a consultation come in and take their hat off to show me a head covered in large green dots because they trusted a traditional tattoo artist with their SMP.?Their only resolution is a referral to a laser tattoo removal clinic. Realistically, that’s where the danger lies in SMP. A full reconstruction with SMP can range from $4000-$5000. It becomes very tempting when your tattoo artists say he?ll do the same thing for $500.?Unfortunately, the depth/pressure, needle, and pigments we use are vastly different from tattoo artists and you should always go to a certified SMP artist with credibility.??
Having said that, most SMP artists out there are properly trained to bring you the results you like.?Scalp micropigmentation is a relatively safe procedure with a very low-risk factor. The greatest risks in SMP, or any tattooing, is improper body substance isolation and sterilization protocols.?The spreading of communicable disease is the top concern of any tattoo artist. The ink SMP artists use are organic and you’re not likely to be allergic to it. The worst thing that could happen is infection due to improper aftercare, which is also rare. Make sure your SMP artist wears gloves and has anything that can come in contact with your bodily fluid, like blood, is covered with a non-porous plastic. Make sure your artist is using a new needle and opens the box in front of you
