It's Time to Rediscover Confidence

What To Do After A Botched Scalp Micropigmentation Procedure

Botched Scalp Micropigmentation Procedure

A botched scalp micropigmentation procedure can have a devastating impact on your appearance and overall confidence. You may feel discouraged and think that no one will ever get it right. Dealing with hair loss is already stressful enough, and that’s why the professionals at Hairline Ink, put all of our efforts into getting it right the first time. We also understand the disappointment that comes with a botched scalp micropigmentation procedure from another practice, and we are prepared to help fix the errors made and deliver you the results you deserved in the first place.

Because scalp micropigmentation is becoming quite popular, many tattoo artists, permanent makeup specialists, or inexperienced practitioners have started trying to do SMP themselves. However, scalp micropigmentation is a delicate procedure that requires extensive training, practice, and experience, and we recommend that you only trust an experienced practitioner with the procedure.

Scalp micropigmentation is very different from tattoos and permanent makeup. The pigments used for each procedure is quite different. For SMP procedures, choosing the right tone and mixing dyes perfectly are the only way to achieve the most natural looking hair and this is very different from the ink mixing that tattoo artists are used to performing.

The whole point of scalp micropigmentation is to achieve the look of natural hair. A botched SMP procedure usually means that the client does not feel like the results look natural. This can be due to a number of issues, including:

  • An inexperienced practitioner – The results of a scalp micropigmentation procedure are entirely dependent upon the practitioner. The procedure is highly specialized and requires unique training and experience.
  • Incorrect application of dyes– Dyes are supposed to be placed a few layers under the skin rather than a tattoo, where the depth is much deeper.
  • Dot size– The size of the dots is supposed to replicate the size of a hair follicle. However, dots that are too big or too close together can make the results look unnatural.

At Hairline Ink, client satisfaction is our main priority. To see for yourself, view our client Tyler Giver’s before-and-after video on our testimonials page. He decided to give scalp micropigmentation a try and went to a local SMP practitioner and he was unhappy with the results. He that his SMP results looked faded and he did not get the clean-shaven, natural hair look that he wanted. He came to Hairline Ink and could not be happier with the results.
