How To Avoid A Low Quality SMP Treatment

Scalp Micropigmentation is an effective and safe method to treat balding, hair loss and receding hairline. It can be second to none if performed with accuracy and skill. It is always advised to go through thorough research before settling on your clinic of choice. A good clinic has a lot of features that distinguish it from other low-quality clinics. But what exactly would those features be?

A Good Clinic Will Always Have

  • Well trained staff and physicians
  • Finest and top of the line equipment
  • Good quality and organic inks that do no harm to the skull in any way
  • Most importantly, good client reviews

All of these factors make up a well-established and successful SMP clinic. And if you want to have a memorable experience with your Scalp Micropigmentation, make sure to research your clinic well enough before finalizing your decision.  The clinic provides you with full details of the sessions and aftercare routines so that there is no way to mess up the treatment.

In a lot of cases, we see patients with poorly done SMPs, who come looking for solutions. Following are some more common cases:

Uneven Pigmentation

This can happen in a variety of ways. Either the pigments are not placed at right intervals, or the size of the pigments varies too much, or the pigments are denser in one area and shallower in the others. Even if it is a mishap, it is not too much of a serious situation as it can be covered easily with the addition of some more pigmentation to the skin. The physician will add layers and even out the look by balancing the division of pigments on the scalp.

Bad Quality Ink

An SMP procedure done with either a bad quality ink or a simple tattoo ink can leave devastating results. And, needless to say, only the client is left to deal with the aftermaths of it. In most of the cases, the ink turns blue or green after a session and completely destroys the scalp. The clients end up having to remove it altogether.

The Helmet Look

Most men fear the Helmet Look whenever they opt for Scalp Micropigmentation. This look represents a completely painted scalp. It can be avoided easily by adding density over multiple sessions. Three sessions are required for a complete SMP look. More density is added over these sessions. This creates layers of pigments and gives it the appearance of a buzz cut.


Scalp Micropigmentation is a life-changing procedure. You have to get it right from the right place.

But if you have already stumbled across an unprofessional clinic and are not enjoying your look, do not panic. Your look can still be saved by various methods. You can either ask for your look to be renewed or even removed completely.

A good clinic can renew your look by adding pigments to merge with your look, making it more professional and neater.  You can also get your SMP removed and then wait a couple of months before going to another clinic (the right clinic!) for your treatment.
