Opting for scalp micropigmentation is a life-changing decision. It’s a fully visible treatment and will remain so, for years to come. For this reason, it’s crucial to know how to choose the best scalp micropigmentation artist for your procedure.
Scalp micropigmentation is an avant-garde treatment which is also known by the abbreviated name SMP. It’s a non-invasive procedure that is instrumental in concealing the devastating effects of hair loss. It works by tiny microdots of natural pigments being implanted under the skin’s own barrier, the Epidermis. Often, treatment requires between two to four sessions and each session is not only meticulous but a process that is long, with each given session taking several hours. However, once completed, the effects are breath-taking and provide a flawless finish which produces the look of a closely barbered and iconic buzz-cut. Or where diffuse thinning has taken place, underlying shading to mask the offending areas.
Treatments for each scalp micropigmentation procedure are bespoke. Your chosen technician will be fully trained in all of the given aspects, including pigment handling, skin physiology, and colour therapy which is taken into consideration when looking to find the best-fit solution, tailored to the client’s requirements.
One thing is clear, albeit scalp micropigmentation is rapidly becoming a household name, like its close cousins microblading and permanent makeup are, it is still a relatively new procedure. The upshot of this is it deems it difficult to find a clinic on every high street corner. And this results in a minor problem. Because more and more, people are making choices based on location.
The first way to formulate an objective decision is to discard the idea that your closest clinic is the only option. Reputation for the procedure is far more valuable than the location. Be prepared to search for recommendations and also be prepared to travel. Clinics the world over are happy to discuss requirements via several means. Whether it be through Skype, face-to-face or an initial telephone meeting.
when dipping your toe into the water with a possible clinic, be sure to ask the correct questions. Ask the technician where they’ve trained and how long they’ve been working in the industry. Speak to them about implant depth, inquire about pigment choices and how they are made.
In the digital-age we have all been blessed with, it’s never been easier for clients to clarify prominence. The rating culture is rife. Search through all of the social media platforms, check out the before and after photos of treatments administered by your chosen technician. And also ask if you can contact any of the people who have received scalp micropigmentation by the clinic in question. It is a super simple process. If there are any red flags, walk away. If you receive repeated gold star reviews and recommendations, chances are you’ll be in pretty safe hands.
