CAN SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION BE REMOVED? YES
SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION REMOVAL | SMP REMOVAL
Thinking of removing your SMP Scalp Micropigmentation treatment? There are many reasons why you may want to remove your SMP. Perhaps your procedure did not go as well as you hoped, and you’re looking to reverse or fix the entire treatment or a particular area? Or maybe you simply changed your mind? At Hairtattoo.ca, we explain the options available to you.
WHY REMOVE YOUR SMP TREATMENT?
SMP scalp micropigmentation is a permanent solution to hair loss. This is important because it helps our clients to do away with hair loss related anxiety. All he needs to do is to keep his scalp shaved, clean and moisturized, and take reasonable precautions in the sun. The bottom line is that SMP Scalp Micropigmentation is intended as a permanent solution, not one that should be removed on a mere whim.
One should not consider a scalp micropigmentation treatment if removal is already at the front of their mind. Having this procedure should be permanent solution and a life-changing experience.
There is nothing wrong with having an awareness that there is a solution to remove a SMP procedure before doing a SMP treatment, and just as people have tattoo regret on their body, some people may have SMP regret on their scalp.
For those wanting to remove their SMP treatments, there are basically three options – laser removal, saline removal, and the new UNDO Removal.
HOW DOES LASER REMOVAL WORK?
A scalp micropigmentation treatment, correctly applied to the right depth and using a suitable pigment, can be almost completely removed in just one laser session. A second session is usually required to complete the process entirely, especially if the area is large. It’s quick and easy, but very painful.
However, if the wrong type of pigments were used, or if the pigments were deposited deeper in the skin, it would be far harder to remove. They generally require the same process as a tattoo removal which takes more sessions, is more uncomfortable and is less likely to be 100% effective.
Laser removal is not 100% safe. People get burned and scarred by lasers through improper handling. Thankfully, most laser clinics are competent and offer a highly professional service, but still, laser removal should only be resorted to if you’re absolutely sure it’s what you want to do.
Darker skinned clients are at greater risk of either hypopigmentation (skin lightening) or hyperpigmentation (skin darkening) with laser.
CAN SALINE REMOVAL BE USED FOR SMP?
A common technique in the permanent makeup world, saline removal basically flushes out the pigment using a tattoo machine and salt water.
There is a range of proprietary techniques, each with their own formulas and benefits. Popular brands include Li-FT, A+Ocean and Botched Ink.
To date, we are yet to see conclusive evidence that saline removal is a suitable solution for scalp micropigmentation removal.
Whilst the technique has a lot of use cases in permanent makeup, and much of the time it’s a perfectly viable technique for removal of eyebrows, eyeliner and lips, the size of the removal area in most cases simply means saline removal is not a viable option.
WHAT IS UNDO™ REMOVAL FOR SMP?
This is a brand-new technique pioneered by renowned scalp micropigmentation educators Seif Sidky and Candice Piroli of Estetique International. Using no lasers or saline, UNDO is fast becoming the removal system of choice for scalp micropigmentation artists.
Why? UNDO offers some serious advantages over other options, as follows:
- No risk of hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation, which can occur using laser.
- Safe for all clients with dark skin tones as well as Caucasians.
- Less invasive than saline removal.
- Less painful than laser removal.
