If you have done any research into SMP, you have likely seen providers showing before and afters or even wash sessions progression.
Any time we see this on a provider’s social media, everything seems perfect and easy going.
Realistically, there are typically challenges throughout the treatment of many clients. These challenges aren’t anything out of the ordinary but they do require the artist to adjust and make subtle changes in their technique.
The second session is typically the most informative to the artist. This shows how well the pigment stayed in the skin, how well things heeled, does the artist need to use darker or lighter ink, etc.
Many times clients are concerned as the 1st treatment heals because parts fade, it looks dotty, the impressions might be too large, etc.
This is all common and the client should be prepared for this in advance. You must explain that every person’s body is different and the blending and sessions must be completed to see the final results.
One tool an artist can use is completion correction to help with any impressions that have healed too bold or big. This pigment is a thick skin tone pigment that will work as a cover solution and helps with the blending process.
