The Importance of Choosing the Right SMP Provider

Embarking on the journey of Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) requires thorough research to identify the most suitable provider for your needs. Unfortunately, some individuals dive into the SMP process without proper due diligence, leading to discouraging results that may hinder them from further pursuing SMP.

Despite the growing number of SMP providers in recent years, not all uphold the standards expected from this pioneering and expert technique. Instances of poorly executed SMP procedures have become more prevalent over the last decade. Untrained SMP practitioners, tattoo artists, and even certain hair transplant doctors misrepresenting their expertise have contributed to unsatisfactory outcomes. This often results in noticeable imperfections such as blotchy or large dots, blue or green discolouration, and overly defined hairlines, commonly known as the ‘helmet effect.’

Addressing Botched SMP: Beyond Laser Removal

Historically, laser removal was the primary recommendation for correcting botched SMP treatments. However, this solution comes with caution due to its notable pain, potential trauma, and high cost, requiring numerous sessions for correction. Moreover, there is a risk of hair loss and scarring if not administered with precision.

For clients seeking SMP correction without resorting to laser removal, SMP HQ offers a specialised solution – SMP repairs. This meticulous process involves blending and neutralising prior botched deposits to seamlessly integrate with our shading and deposits. While SMP repair may not achieve perfection comparable to laser removal, it provides a highly effective alternative without the drawbacks associated with laser treatments.

The Cost of Cutting Corners: ‘You Get What You Pay For’

It’s crucial to recognize that SMP, like many other services, adheres to the principle of ‘you get what you pay for.’ Clients who prioritise cost savings often end up with disappointing, sometimes horrific results. Comprehensive research upfront can prevent the need for future corrective measures like laser removal or SMP repair.

At SMP HQ, we encourage all clients to prioritise quality and thorough research. While the initial cost of SMP may seem like a significant factor, choosing a reputable provider will save you money and ensure satisfactory results in the long run. Invest wisely in your SMP journey to avoid the need for corrective measures down the line.
