No Regulation, No Rule
Because there is no regulation, many hair salons and beauty centers provide SMP services without proper training. Most of them just apply their usual tattooing techniques on the scalp. Since there is no unified method, results varies. The biggest disadvantage of SMP is the lack of three-dimensional sense. If it is used in areas without hair, such as the hairline and the top of the head, the effect is extremely unnatural.
Failed SMP From Other Centers
Repaired by Hair Transplant
However, to remove these unnatural lines and pigments, we do not recommended using lasers. This may inflict damage to the skin and underlying hair follicles, and leave scars on the forehead as well as causing hair loss.
We would recommend considering hair transplants to repair. The effect according to our experience is more natural. As we make use of the original SMP shading effect, less number of grafts will needed to be transplanted. Whether to use FUE or FUT depends on the areas for repair and personal preference.
