So you decided to go for cheap SMP for alopecia areata and have ended up with a bad SMP experience. Yes, you are not happy with the result and want it fixed as soon as possible. Unfortunately, you may end up paying extra for a series of laser sessions to fix botched scalp micropigmentation. Worst still, since it was an unhappy procedure, you may feel embarrassed in front of everyone else. That means you may always want to cover your scalp to conceal botched SMP.
What is Bad SMP?
Since it is a technical procedure, care must be taken to find the job’s best hands. You don’t want to end up in the wrong hands. A botched procedure is often the result of inexperienced practitioner choice.
You need only a skilled and experienced practitioner for scalp micropigmentation. Do not choose an inexperienced person who promises to do the job at a cheaper price. If you fall into their trap, poor scalp micropigmentation will be the result. Many tattoo artists claim to do SMP, but they cannot perform the best job because scalp micropigmentation and body art differ. They may appear similar but are distances apart regarding tools and applications.
Poor Application and Product Quality
Hair tattoo uses different pigment from scalp micropigmentation. If a technician uses tattoo ink for SMP, it will likely leave the client an unhappy experience. SMP pigments are specially formulated for the scalp micropigmentation. Tattoo ink can bleed and create an unnatural appearance.
During scalp micropigmentation, the pigment is meant to be injected into the second layer of the skin. It should not go deeper than this. Any deeper penetration could cause ink discoloration or migration. Unqualified technicians are unaware of the proper depth of implantation. They end up performing incorrect applications that go deeper than the required SMP level, resulting in ink migration. Worst still, the color of the ink can change appearance.
Tattoo needles are way bigger than SMP needles, which are designed to create tiny dots that look like hair follicles. On the other hand, if an artist uses tattoo needles, that could result in a bad experience for clients. The end result would be bigger dots that do not mimic follicles and look fake and unrealistic.
Scalp micropigmentation is a minimally invasive procedure, but that does not mean it requires no aftercare. You are wrong if you think that SMP does not need care. Hygiene is important for the success of scalp micropigmentation. If proper SMP aftercare is ignored, it might result in a flawed appearance. For example, the ink might fade if you step out in the sun without protection after the procedure. Too much sweat can also create unnatural results and affect the effectiveness of the procedure.
