How to Remove Scalp Micropigmentation

Scalp Micropigmentation Removal is Possible!

Yes, your SMP treatment can be removed! The trusted method for this process is laser tattoo removal. Although SMP treatments are likened to tattoos, the pigmentation does not go as deep in the skin. Factors such as lifestyle, skin sensitivity, and maintenance play a role in the durability of your SMP. Usually, SMP lasts between 5 to 10 years until it completely fades away.

Reliable Laser Tattoo Removal

If you decide within this timespan to remove or lighten your SMP, laser tattoo removal is the most effective course of action to date. This process might require multiple sessions. Still, it's the most successful way to break down the pigments used in SMP and restore your skin to its former glory.

The Road Less Travelled: Alternatives to Complete Removal

If you're in love with your SMP but find it too dark, there's a solution for that too! Some practitioners can offer methods to lighten the pigmentation using non-abrasive saline solutions, giving a desirable shade without a complete removal. Although the results can be spotty, it is a popular method that many artists use.

Embrace the Natural Route

If you seek natural ways to fade SMP without invasive techniques, sunlight might be the key. Exposure to sun rays without proper protection such as sunscreen or a hat can gradually fade your SMP. Keep in mind that this method involves careful observation to prevent unwanted skin damage.

Trust Matters: Choose a Credible SMP Practitioner

When seeking to get your SMP, trust a reliable, renowned practitioner like Elegant SMP. We follow a meticulous process, gradually building up the pigmentation, keeping in mind that it’s always safer to tattoo less rather than more. You can always add more, but you can’t subtract without laser removal is our saying. This approach allows for client input throughout the SMP journey, ensuring satisfaction. This also allows us to use multiple shades and create more texture without oversaturating the scalp.

Bald? Get It Done Right The First Time

To those men and women who’re entirely comfortable with their bald look – we salute you! However, if you’re searching for a way to frame your face artfully and rock that bald 5 o’clock shadow look, consider an elegant SMP at Elegant SMP. The transformative power of our treatments can help you break free from the constant struggle of maintaining your hair loss and reclaim your confidence.

Elegant SMP is the place to get your scalp micropigmentation if you are interested in quality technique. Not all SMP is the same and your practitioner's training really does matter. For me, understanding how my artist could achieve an authentic looking hairline was very important, and very few SMP artists have the training to achieve that. Tommy at Elegant SMP is a true professional who understands how to get a natural looking result that is difficult to replicate - which is a true testament to his training. My SMP results exceeded my expectations and I would recommend Elegant SMP to anyone who is interested in getting the highest quality work the first time, or repairing SMP work that missed the mark.
