7 Questions to Ask Your Scalp Micropigmentation Artist Before Treatment

by El Truchan London Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) Expert

Did you know that 50% of women and 85% of men experience balding? That's one of the reasons why people seek the services of a scalp micropigmentation artist. They want to restore the appearance of a full head of hair, along with their confidence.

However, many people don't know much about what a scalp micropigmentation artist actually does. That's why we've assembled a guide to 7 questions to ask before you undergo scalp micropigmentation treatment. Let's get started!

1. What Are Their Qualifications?

Whether you've heard good things or are still Googling terms like "scalp micropigmentation SMP", there's still more to learn. Start by asking about your professional's SMP training.

What experience and certifications do they have? Hair restoration is a delicate process, and it's important to put your scalp in the right hands. How many years have they practiced? Are they Insured?

2. How Will the Area Look After Treatment?

When it comes to scalp pigmentation, it's crucial that you have a good idea about what it might look like. Your scalp will look like a naturally shaved head with a little stubble growing back.

3. What Do The Results Look Like?

As any scalp micropigmentation artist in London or anywhere else can tell you, there are no guarantees. But a talented professional will adjust your hairline to suit your age, face, and where your hairline would naturally be.

It's important for you to reach an agreement with your scalp micropigmentation artist. After all, you're the one who has to live with the results!

4. How Long Will the Results Last?

A scalp micropigmentation procedure is a long-term investment! In many cases, the treatment will last between four and six years. Between 3 to 5 years but maintenance visits can be required sooner.

Once you've gone through all the treatment sessions, you'll be set.

5. What Does Their Scheduling Process Look Like?

Life gets busy, and finding time to squeeze in an appointment may be challenging. Make sure their scheduling and cancellation policy will work with your needs.

This will help prevent cancellation fees from adding up, or from experiencing frustration if you can only make appointments on evenings and weekends.

6. How Long Does It Take?

A good scalp micropigmentation artist will be able to adjust your expectations on the timeline. Usually, each session will take between 2 and 4 hours.

You'll likely need multiple sessions, depending on how advanced your hair loss is. Most clients require between three and four treatments, and these are spaced out to prevent any adverse effects.

7. What is the healing process?

Find out what your healing process and the aftercare will be as some restrictions to your activities will apply. For example, getting the scalp wet, application of aftercare products, having to avoid sweaty exercise and hours in the sun will be restricted. All these and the other information are relevant to your treatment timeline and the outcome.
