Here’s a new one for you. 3D Scalp Micropigmentation. But what exactly is a 3 dimensional SMP treatment and what are the benefits?
3D SMP is a procedure where pigments, which range in shade, are applied during an individuals treatment session. Generally speaking, during the initial procedure and sometimes running over to the second treatment, a lighter pigment shade is deposited into the scalp. Thereafter, the second or third session will involve a slightly darker pigment. And the final session a scattering of darker pigments, taking into consideration that the final layer demands a huge amount of skill from the technician to enable the correct texturing which gives that final 3D effect.
As a rule of thumb, the number of treatments required to complete a 3D effect is at minimum three. However, the final scatter layer of pigments must be done on the ultimate and final session. The key to a successful treatment is building up the pigment layers and getting the pigment shading to work in harmony with skin tones. This can take longer than a standard and regular scalp micropigmentation treatment.
The demand for 3D scalp micropigmentation is on the increase for some very obvious reasons. It’s the crème de la crème of aesthetic treatments. And the purpose of any SMP procedure is, without a shadow of a doubt, to provide treatments that look as close as possible to the iconic buzz-cut we’re all hankering after. However, this textured effect which results in a 3D finish has to come with a hazard warning. As from a technicians point of view, it’s not actually that easy to pull off.
If you’re considering a 3-dimensional scalp micropigmentation treatment, make sure you do an immense amount of homework. SMP costs a pretty packet at the best of times and if you add the 3D label, that price tag is going to increase. Also, be aware that this should only be done by highly trained and incredibly skilled technicians who have a bucket full of experience and prior knowledge of skin physiology under their belts.
So how would you know where to go and how do you filter out the good guys from the bad? How can you be sure you’re not going to fall into the hands of someone who says they know how it rolls when really they just don’t?
The answer is simple. Get yourself onto social media. Hook up to Facebook and look up the reviews. Then do the same on the other networking sites. Twitter, Instagram… google the tech and see where they’re at. But in addition to this, ask around you. Has anyone else had treatment or experience with your chosen clinic and how did they feel about their finished results? And finally, make appointments to establish how you feel about a clinic and the technician who will be carrying out your 3D scalp micropigmentation. You really need to feel completely comfortable. And let’s face it, you will be spending a decent amount of money on your 3 dimensional SMP treatment. You’ve got the right to ask questions and investigate.
