What to Know if You’re Considering Temporary Scalp Micropigmentation
You’re at the end of your rope with the so-called permanent treatments that haven’t proven to be such: hair transplants, topical foams, supplements. After months, years, or even decades of not being able to find the right long-term treatment for you, you’ve finally discovered scalp micropigmentation. However, there is one major difference between this permanent solution and all the previous “permanent” solutions: SMP will not give you real hair, just a highly-realistic illusion that you have natural hair. While you’d jump at the chance for a real, permanent solution, many people feel like they may not be sure about SMP. This is where the temporary SMP solution comes in.
Temporary Scalp Micropigmentation has many upsides. You’ll have a decent amount of time to determine whether you like the look and feel of the treatment and grow accustomed to a new haircare routine, whether you have long or short hair. It’s important to note that people with large bald spots will be encouraged to shave all of their hair on a regular basis, or the look will become unnatural. Temporary SMP is great for people who are interested in the treatment but are unsure whether it will be right for them long-term.
However, there are downsides. For one, it’s called temporary for a reason. SMP technicians have a very particular set of tools and pigments to ensure a long-term, natural look, and even in the permanent treatment, there will be some fading and need for touch-ups, but they’ll be few and far between. With temporary SMP, not only will the pigment fade away quickly, pigment fading can quickly make the look quite blurry. If you decide you like the way it looks at the very beginning, you’ll either need to get touch-ups on nearly a yearly basis or get permanent treatment.
