Well done and realistic scalp micropigmentation creates a natural hairline and variation of pigment distribution to look like stubble.
A botched scalp micropigmentation can have a devastating impact on people’s appearance and confidence. Much more than hair loss.
SMP procedure is becoming very popular and requested, because It is an innovative solution for people who experience all forms of hair loss (alopecia, thinning hair, pattern baldness, ect.).
So, many tattoo artists or permanent make up specialists have started to offer to their clients scalp micropigmentation. But, they ignore that scalp micropigmentation is a delicate procedure that requires practice, experience and advanced skills.
SMP is very different from permanent makeup and tattoos. The pigments, the technique and also the needles are different.
A simple google search of “ botched scalp micropigmentation” or “botched hair tattoo” will produce lots of stories of people who have choosen the wrong specialist or the cheap treatment.
So, scalp micropigmentation regrets are more frequent than we think. And laser smp removal or botched hair tattoo removal are more and more requested.
The purpose of scalp micropigmentation is to achieve the look of natural hair.
A botched SMP procedure usually means that the client isn’t happy of results. For example, pigments are too dark, look blue or misaligned, creating a really fake look.
A botched scalp micropigmentation can be due to various issues, like:
An unqualified scalp micropigmentation artist. Scalp micropigmentation requires training and experience.
Dot size and placement. The size of dots has to be similar to hair follicle, not bigger. However, it’s important to leave the right distance among dots.
Incorrect depth. In SMP, great accurancy is needed. Pygments are supposed to be injected into a few layers under the skin rather than a tattoo, where the depth is much deeper.
Use of unspecific needles. The needle used for scalp micropigmentation is specific for scalp. It has a smooth point and a porous body: this feature allows the tricopigmentist to control the amount of pigment injected into the skin. Tattoo needles aren’t suitable for smp.
Use of incorrect ink. Pigment for smp are supposed to be biocompatible, hypoallergenic and suitable for scalp. Permanent tattoo ink isn’t made for scalp micropigmentation.
Hand practionner’s movement. To create perfect dots, similar to real hair follicles, practionner’s hand has to move in the right way (so called hand at right angles).
The growing number of unnatural results and aesthetic damage has led the most experienced technicians to recognize the need to develop SMP correction protocols.
Many people don’t know the difference between a botched hair tattoo and a botched scalp micropigmentation.
They are in common a bad process and result. Of course! But, the depth and the ink are divergent.
The expert scalp micropigmentation artist can carry out correction work only if the unexpert technician who preceded him used a scalp micropigmentation ink. If the operator has instead used a permanent tattoo pigment, the only solution is laser removal.
If the scalp micropigmentation gives a bad outcome because of technical errors (movement, overlapping of dots or incorrect distance among dots, unsuitable ink), the expert practitioner can restore the look with a corrective smp treatment.
There are two methods:
For each case, there is a corrective solution (smp or laser removal). But, the solutions to bad SMP aren’t enjoyable, rapid and cheap. So, prevention is better than cure.
If done incorrectly, scalp micropigmentation can give extremely unnatural and aesthetically gross results. It’s important to prevent bad experiences choosing someone who is specialized in scalp micropigmentation.
We believe that the experience of scalp micropigmentation artist and the use of the right tools, particularly the right ink, are the necessary conditions to give to the clients a natural and realistic look with SMP.
If all goes well during SMP procedure, you have a charcoal gray to light gray variation of stubble on the scalp. The color and shade of microdots depend on the quality of pigment.
Therefore, a group of expert practitioners, moved by the need to improve the properties of the pigments used in scalp micropigmentation treatments, studied to obtain a formula that could give a natural, realistic and harmonious final result.
