Scalp Micropigmentation 2nd Session

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.

Scalp Micropigmentation In Different Lighting

Lighting plays a big role in how we see results on any given client. Providers will also use lighting to obtain the best before and after photos for marketing. 

It’s important to understand that this is natural and a fully shaved head will appear darker or lighter depending on lighting. 

Example: You’re in a dimmed bar meeting a date for the 1st time, it’s likely you will have a much more prominent SMP shadow vs. meeting at the beach where your head is reflecting the direct sunlight causing the results to look much more subtle. 

Some clients may ask why they took a picture at the pool and they look completely bald. They may even suggest going darker with their SMP. As an artist you need to be able to educate your client on the lighting effects and why “more is not better”. You don’t want a Lego head. 

One way to address the reflection to achieve more of a shadow effect in bright lighting is to use a matting product. This helps reduce shine on the head and advances the overall realistic look of SMP.

Laser Off – Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)

With so many people wanting to learn Scalp Micro pigmentation due to high income potential and relatively low cost to start up in the industry; the need for SMP correction has never been more prevalent. Unfortunately, many folks looking to get into the business are going through short training courses lasting 2-3 days typically. Some of these courses are 100% online which means the student gets zero experience on real skin. For the folks going to an in person training course; they are typically getting to practice on a human model however, they are not seeing their heeled results a week out making the training much less useful.

Luckily there are a few options to either fix the bad SMP or have it lasered off completely. Some options other than laser would be a saline solution, a diluted lactic acid or acid base or a complexion correction pigment needled into the bad SMP impressions. These options are limited and should only be used to correct some bad impressions and not for correcting a whole head of bad SMP work.

Laser is the best and cleanest option for getting rid of bad SMP. If the SMP was done with carbon pigment as most SMP is and the artist did not go too deep; SMP can typically be removed in one laser session as opposed to a traditional tattoo. This is because a tattoo is applied into deeper layers of the skin while SMP should be applied much shallower. Plan for two laser sessions to make sure all the impressions and dark spots are removed fully.

When looking for a SMP artist, do your research and also make sure they have apprenticed with someone for a decent amount of time instead of just completing a 3 day course. There is no substitution for working on real clients and seeing the progression and healed results.

Top Hair Loss Solution

If you are dealing with too much hair loss, there could be several reasons behind that. Unless you unlock the cause, you cannot get rid of it, right? You must have heard claims of coconut oil being the best hair loss solution available. Is it really effective as a treatment for hair loss, alopecia, receding hairline, and thinning hair? Well, coconut oil does help supply some nutrients to the scalp, since it is rich in good fatty acids. But it takes a lot of time to show results. Moreover, the results do not show up in every case, depending on the type of hair loss you are experiencing. Health scientists have too many reasons to dispute the effectiveness of coconut oil for hair. So what is the solution then? Well, if you seek a permanent cure for hair loss, then forget everything else and choose scalp micropigmentation in Phoenix Arizona.

What Does Research Say on Coconut Oil as Hair Loss Solution

While research does find proof that coconut oil can reduce the effects of protein loss in hair, there’s still doubt on the effectiveness of coconut oil on preventing male pattern baldness resulting from DHT.

One 2003 study found that coconut oil helps maintain protein levels in hair. You might be surprised to learn that frequent application of styling chemicals, over-brushing, and too much exposure to sunlight and wind might result in the loss of hair protein. No doubt, coconut oil is better than sunflower oil and safflower oil for hair loss. Coconut oil performs better than these two oils in terms of hair loss prevention.

While coconut oil can replenish your hair follicles, it is not a one-cure for hair loss. Its effectiveness might vary from person to person, depending on the extent and type of hair loss. If you are impressed with the claims of coconut oil for hair loss, you may want to use shampoos and hair care products that are formulated with coconut milk and oil. It not only smells good but also makes your hair feel soft and shiny. The best part is coconut oil as a hair loss solution is safe to use and does not cause any side effects.

But it takes time to show up results. If you are fighting serious hair loss in the form of thinning hair, alopecia areta, receding hairline, you may not want to wait for months or years for coconut oil to cover those visible signs of hair loss, which are ruining your looks and personality.

Bottom line

If you observe too much thinning of hair or fast receding hairline, you want to choose a quick-fix solution and not wait endlessly for results. Coconut oil may or may not help your hair loss problem. So instead of waiting for results that might not even show up, it is better to choose a permanent hair restoration solution.

Scalp micropigmentation in Phoenix Arizona gives you a permanent solution to hair loss. SMP helps recreate the look of hair follicles with the help of microneedles to implant matching pigment into the scalp. The best thing about SMP for hair loss is that it gives you a near-natural look so nobody can say you have undergone a hair loss procedure.
