No, it’s not a nightmare but some of scalp micropigmentation side effects, or rather of bad scalp micropigmentation.
Every treatment has its pros and cons. In the absence of expertise and specific tools, scalp micropigmentation can cause damage and worsen discomfort in those suffering from hair loss.
Let’s see together what the possible side effects of smp are and what they are caused by.
Most treatments performed on the body carry risks. When scalp micropigmentation is performed by an experienced and qualified artist, with advanced tools and techniques, in the absence of pathological contraindications, has no serious side effects.
If one of these conditions fails, scalp micropigmentation can have temporary or quite serious side effects.

What does the success or failure of a scalp micropigmentation treatment depend on? Side effects can occur, but sometimes the problem is the wrong technique, low-quality pigments, or an unsterile environment and instruments.
It is important to study, train, and continually update. Take care of the environment in which you work.
Listen to the history and needs of one’s patients. Choose high-performance and high-quality tools (needles, dermographs, pigments).
Side effects of SMP are extremely rare. If you have doubts about the reaction the patient’s scalp may have to the ink, you can test a small amount on a less visible section of the scalp before starting treatment. The patient must feel comfortable. It is the smp artist’s duty to reassure him or her.
The most important thing to achieve the most natural-looking results is experience (the right pressure with which to insert the needle, the angle of the hand, and the dilution of the pigment take time and lots of practice).
As a smp artist you know that scalp micropigmentation requires advanced technical skills and experience, but also specific tools (needles and pigments).
Assuming that the artist’s preparation is beyond reproach, obtaining a good result depends largely on the type of pigment used.
The best inks for scalp micropigmentation are hypoallergenic, biocompatible, scalp-specific and above all stable.
What does it mean that the color is stable?
The color will not turn blue or green over time, nor will it tend to enlarge from the injection site.
