Arizona SMP has come a long way over the last decade. Artists have gained further experience and found better pigments, needles, and techniques.
Unfortunately as great as SMP is as a hair loss solution, we are still utilizing a 2D solution for a 3D problem. There are limitations to how natural this solution can look and it must be performed in such a manner that helps recreate the most natural look.
Is SMP natural up close in person? The answer certainly lies with the scalp artist’s experience, skills, and knowledge.
Does Arizona SMP Work
A skilled technician has the knowledge and skills to create thousands of impressions at the right depth, where they can inject the pigment. The more experienced the Arizona SMP practitioner, the tinier the impression. Some inexperienced artists may end up creating bigger impressions that look odd and result in a bad SMP.
Besides, each portion of the scalp is a different texture. That means it can yield a different result from one spot to another, depending on the part of the scalp being worked on. It takes a skilled artist and lots of patience to achieve the best results possible.
Your artist should also be utilizing a complexion correction or saline solution to target any impressions that are not satisfactory as a standard part of the treatment.
The Arizona SMP Look
Natural hairlines are a must to obtain a natural result. It has become a trend in the SMP world to create the edged-up barber look. If we are creating a shaved head look with SMP, it might be a challenge to obtain an edge-up look. You must have some length to achieve this with real hair. So why would this be a great idea with a 2D impression? Although you can create a feathered edge-up, this is a risky hairline to choose for the most natural result.
The idea is to give a shaved look of a full head of hair, not to try and create hair. Skilled Arizona SMP artists create the best SMP look that appears realistic. They are aware of the different skin types, latest in SMP equipment, and looks.
The best SMP look is that of a natural feathered hairline. Less is more, so do not get caught in the “more is better” trap.
Scalp artists cannot ignore pigments. The SMP world tends to utilize diluted straight black carbon ink. Luckily some artists have adopted the idea that the carbon black needs to be warmed up to help avoid the “shoe polish SMP look” and to help avoid blue in lighter-skinned clients.
Do your research and go to an artist that promotes a natural feathered hairline, subtleness, and warm pigments. Remember, your choice of a scalp artist can be the difference between the best SMP procedure and a botched one. The choice is yours. Pick the most experienced Arizona SMP artist today.
