scalp micropigmentation removal

As scalp micropigmentation 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 scalp micropigmentation where pigments are colours turning 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.

In most of these cases, the best course of action is to remove the pigment and start again.  Scalp micropigmentation can be a wonderful treatment when done well but can have seriously detrimental effects when it fails.

As a level 5 accredited practitioner I am delighted to offer a removal solution for failed scalp micropigmentation as well as unwanted body tattoos and permanent make up that is safe and effective.

Using a Q Switched ND YAG we are able to safely remove most scalp micropigmentation 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 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!

Frequently Asked Questions

Does It Hurt?

It isn’t comfortable but it is quick! In most cases it is a sharp snapping sensation that is uncomfortable but bearable.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

In most cases SMP is relatively simple to remove, you should expect 2 or 3 sessions with a 8 week gap between. Of course there are always exceptions to the rule so it is wise to consider that you may need more sessions, depending on skin tone, pigment depth and quality etc Body Tattoos will take longer (8-12 sessions)

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

Generally speaking each SMP removal session will cost £75 for a small area such as the temple or hairline, upto £250 for an entire scalp.

Body Tattoos start at £50 for a 1inch square and are priced based on the size.

Can I Have SMP Correction After Laser?

Yes! But you do need to give your skin time to heal…. We recommend correction work after 12 weeks of healing for best results.

Will It Damage The Remaining Hair?

In most cases NO!  Directly after treatment you may find the hair turns white as it is singed by the laser, but it will regrow.  In some cases you may be asked to shave but generally we can work through the hair.
