Scalp Micropigmentation Removal & Repair
As SMP pigments and techniques have advanced we are now, thankfully, seeing more consistent healed results, with less blue and migrated SMP procedures that require removal.
However there are still sadly many cases of old or failed SMP where pigment colours have turned blue as well as pigment blurring under the skin. This can be due to many factors including pigments, technique and even PH Balance of your skin or excessive sun exposure.
Reasons for SMP Removal Or Repair
There can be many reasons for SMP removal or repair, including botched SMP, staining due to over exposure to sun, old ink that has migrated and you want to start fresh, adjustment of hairline to something more fitting for your age or you may just simply have decided you want to remove the SMP and embrace your natural remaining hairline.
How the Removal works
Using a Q Switched ND YAG we are able to safely remove most SMP with 2-3 sessions with very little downtime or damage to skin. Body Tattoos are generally deeper within the skin and more saturated with pigments therefore these will take longer, between 8-12 sessions is an estimate.
The Laser shatters the SMP pigment particles to allow your lymphatic system to remove the particles from the area, this is why the gap between sessions is so important! To get the best results you must give your body time to do what it does best!
