How To Remove SMP?

Posted by Mary Shoufield on

Scalp micropigmentation is a hair restoration solution for scalp problems. However, sometimes the procedure does not work if done by untrained tattoo artists. Scalp micropigmentation is the job of experts so it works best when performed by experienced scalp artist. A tattoo artist or an unskilled SMP technician may not produce desired results.

An inexperienced artist may deposit the ink too deep, where it may leave a shadowy residue or migrate. Sometimes a client may feel bored of carrying the same look over and over again and might want to change it. If a client is unhappy with the shape of their hairline, SMP removal becomes necessary. So is removal of SMP actually possible?

Can You Remove SMP?

Scalp micropigmentation removal is possible in the following cases.

You may want to remove scalp micropigmentation if the hairline is too low

If a client does not have any hair in the area or the hairline goes too far beyond the natural hairline, it can shorten the forehead. In that case, the whole face may appear un-proportional as the hairline cannot be hidden, being the front region of the head. A skilled SMP professional can measure your facial features and visualize the final look.  However, if an unskilled artist does the job, there are chances of SMP going wrong. It is here that removal should fix the problem.

You may choose SMP removal if the pigment dots look big or spread

An unskilled scalp artist may create big dots. As a result, dots may look unrealistic. In such cases, pigment dots may spread if the tattoo artist uses too thick needle, unlike SMP that uses microneedles. The procedure may look botched if the ink is injected deeper and spreads in the skin.

A tattoo artist is unaware of the exact placement of dots and might place them too close to each other. As a result, they might merge and the whole procedure may look botched.

It’s not easy to camouflage such dots that have spread. Such dots must be removed.

SMP removal is necessary if the pigment color turns bluish-green

Removal may be necessary if the pigment becomes discolored. This happens when the pigment is either low quality or injected at a deeper level in the skin than actually needed. If the ink is deposited too deeper into the scalp tissue, it might appear botched. Worst still, in some clients, the skin around follicles starts to appear bluish green.

When pigment is injected too deep under the skin, it might appear splotchy under hair follicles. The dots may appear too big and connect with each other. This might create a look of bleeding ink.

You may have a changed style preference other than the existing SMP look

If you have a change of heart and you don’t want to carry the same look, SMP removal might be a better option. This ensures that you don’t have to lip with the same style all your life.

Now what’s the best option for SMP removal? While laser removal seems to be the leading procedure to get rid of scalp micropigmentation, there are other alternatives too.

Complexion correction is one. It is a unique formulation to correct the skin color if SMP looks bad or botched or if the dots appear too big. The color correcting formula is effective for a range of issues, from scar discoloration to spots, and bad tattooing.
