I can definitely camouflage all forms of scarring with SMP! I take into consideration that scars can stand-out on the head, but with SMP, we blend in the scars into the overall look.
SMP can be used on all sorts of color to blend with the natural color of your head. I have experience creating custom blends for other natural hair colors such as blonde, brown to red.
Immediately after the first session you will have results of what SMP is. However there will be some redness for a couple of days, and I’ll provide an aftercare guide on how to maintain the scalp. I assure you, you will look great!
SMP lasts a lifetime with proper care, however, there are maintenance required such as touch ups to maintain the dark pigment color. Touch ups depend on client to client basis but on average we should touch base every 3 to 6 years to schedule a followup.
Typically to maintain the “buzzed cut” look, we suggest our clients to shave every 2-3 days to have that optimal look. If your hair grows too long then it won’t maintain that natural look and won’t look seamless.
No worries! I provide treatments that add density to the scalp and ensure all noticeability of hair loss is taken away while blending pigments in certain areas where we suspect hair loss will happen.
Yes the SMP process can be reversed with an electro-optic Q switch laser. The process consists of a laser using heat to break down the pigmentation and causing absorption by the phagocytes in the upper dermis of the scalp. Since SMP is less intense than a normal tattoo, in terms of depth of application, electro-optic laser generally gets the job done.
After 3-5 years is when you might notice that the color starts to fade away from the dark shading, we recommend a touch up that will give it that natural dark look you had after your latest session. It’s a flat fee of $500 which will take about an hour to two hours max.
I will create a look that is fitted to the hair you have. During the consultation and reviewing photos, we will have better advice on what needs to be done to your hair and what length to keep it to achieve a natural look.
During in the consultation I’ll inform you of specific after care procedures and exactly what to expect but generally you should plan on not getting your head wet, touching it or sweating from physical activity for 4-5 days.

No. The only similarity is that color is applied into your skin, so if you see ANY tattoo parlor or artist offering a similar service, run the other direction. SMP is a totally different technique practiced by trained SMP professionals using totally different pigments or “pig” using different techniques with different, state of the art equipment. This is the question I’m asked most often, so here’s a quick breakdown.
