Frequently asked questions

How Long Will The SMP Last?

The pigment will last for 3 – 5 years. This will vary from person to person and the longevity of the pigment will depend on factors such as; skin type, skin condition, age, health, diet, environmental factors, and amount of exposure to the sun or sun beds.

Does SMP Hurt?

Everybody’s skin is different and the discomfort felt will vary from person to person. The majority of clients find the treatment bearable. If you can relax your mind and body during your sessions, you will feel less pain. We do apply numbing cream though to minimise discomfort.

Will The Procedure Leave Me With A Natural Looking Hairline?

We will look through images of hairlines together, identifying which shape and density would be the most natural look for you. The shape of your new hairline will be drawn on, using your facial features as guidelines. Once the procedure is over your hairline will look completely natural.

Is It The Same As A Normal Tattoo?

Although SMP and tattooing make marks on the skin, the process is completely different. SMP involves custom pigments, special techniques, mapping and much more in comparison to traditional body tattooing.

How Long Does The Treatment Take?

A regular SMP treatment session will last anything from 2 to 5 hours from start to finish. This is a timescale that really does vary. Some clients have a skin type that’s much more complex to work alongside, others may be super simple and quick.
