As an alternative to hair transplantation, one of the most appealing features of undergoing scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is that it achieves permanent results, thanks to its shared similarities with tattoos. A patient who opts for this procedure should maintain optimal results by making sure their scalp is regularly moisturized, shaved, and taken care of with sunscreen. As this is a permanent solution, it is recommended that, if a patient has any serious doubts or thoughts of removal, they should refrain from having the procedure done. Undergoing the procedure with negative preconceptions typically leads only to regret, as there was never certainty in the first place. With that being said, if you are choosing to have the procedure done, being informed is important, and it is still good to understand the process and details for the removal of SMP.
Despite the fact that it is a permanent solution, a situation may come up that could lead to someone wanting to remove it. Reasons can range from poor results to wanting to change your look or even just changing your mind altogether.
