Addressing Imperfections with Complexion Correction

Posted by Mary Shoufield on

Scalp micropigmentation performed by an inexperienced scalp artist can go wrong and create fake results. Many clients may come to you for a corrective SMP. But can SMP be corrected? Well, enter complexion correction.

This technique specifically targets existing SMP that might appear unnatural due to color mismatch, scar tissue, or poor initial application.

SMP technicians use pigments specifically designed to blend with existing pigment or neutralize unwanted hues. They can use this technique to camouflage scar tissue left behind from previous hair transplant procedures or injuries.

Softening Techniques

If someone has an unnatural-looking hairline created by SMP, complexion correction can be used to soften the pigment density and achieve a more natural appearance.

Complexion correction helps refine and improve the aesthetic outcome of SMP, making it look more realistic and natural.

An ideal scenario involves a skilled SMP technician who considers potential complexion correction needs during the initial procedure. Matching pigment color to scalp tone and ensuring proper application can minimize the need for future correction.

SMP offers a non-surgical solution for hair loss, and complexion correction can enhance its natural appearance and correct any scars. 

Camouflaging scalp imperfections

SMP can be used to conceal scalp blemishes, scars, birthmarks, or other discolorations that may be visible through thinning hair or bald patches.

By implanting pigments that match the client's natural skin tone or desired complexion, the practitioner can effectively camouflage these imperfections, creating a more even and uniform scalp appearance.

Correcting uneven skin tones

In some cases, individuals may experience uneven skin tones on their scalp, which can be exacerbated by hair loss or thinning hair.

SMP can help correct these uneven tones by strategically implanting pigments that blend and even out the complexion, creating a more natural and consistent look.

Enhancing the appearance of hair transplants

For individuals who have undergone hair transplants, SMP can be used to fill in any visible scarring or uneven areas around the transplanted hair.

By carefully matching the pigments to the client's natural hair color and skin tone, SMP can create a seamless transition between the transplanted hair and the surrounding scalp, enhancing the overall aesthetic result.

Correcting previous SMP work

If a client needs to correct an unnatural or unsatisfactory complexion, corrective SMP can be performed to adjust the pigment shades and achieve a more natural-looking skin tone.

This may involve lightening, darkening, or blending the existing pigments to create a more harmonious and uniform complexion.
