13 Feb Is there maintenance with SMP?
Yes, there is some upkeep required to maintain the results of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP). SMP is a cosmetic tattooing procedure that involves tattooing pigment onto the scalp to create the illusion of a fuller head of hair, and the results can last for several years with proper care and maintenance.
Some common forms of upkeep for SMP include:
- Touch-up sessions: Depending on the type of pigment used and the individual’s skin, the pigment may fade over time and touch-up sessions may be required. These sessions are typically done every 1-2 years.
- Color refresh: The color of the pigment may change over time, especially if the individual has been exposed to the sun for extended periods. A color refresh can help restore the original color of the pigment.
- Correction of any issues: Sometimes, the SMP process may not go as planned, and there may be issues such as unevenness, fading, or migration of the pigment. Correction procedures can help resolve these issues and restore the natural look of the SMP results.
It is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by the SMP technician and to schedule regular maintenance appointments to ensure that the SMP results remain looking their best.
