  • HOW LONG SMP WILL LAST ?
    SMP will typically last for many years with good care and treatment, including the use of strong sunscreen when outside. We anticipate that for a healthy customer with a normal immune system, the color will retain its original vibrancy for roughly 4-6 years, with slow fading of the pigment lasting up to 8 years. Fortunately, if a touch-up is required, a fee is imposed that is often less than the original treatment expense each session. Because each person is unique, an approximate range of longevity will be presented during our consultation meeting.
  • WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER SMP SESSION ?
    The treated area of the scalp will have some redness for 24 hours after treatment, Furthermore, depending on your skin tone, the pigmentation will be darker for up to 7 days after treatment. Following that, the coloration will appear lighter and softer as the pigment-filled scabs flake away. These scabs go off after 3 to 10 days. As this occurs, the observer notices that the SMP dots are diminishing. When the healing process is complete, the healed dots blend well with any natural hair. After about one month of SMP, the pigments will begin to "set," and fading will be nearly non-existent.
