How long does Scalp Micropigmentation last?
A question I pretty much get asked each and every time is “how long does scalp micropigmentation last?”
To be honest it all depends on many factors like texture/oiliness of the skin ( scalp that generally will produce a lot of oil will not keep the pigment as long as other scalps). Also aftercare and exposure to sunbeds and natural UV rays (repeated exposure to UV light may cause the impressions to lighten up over time). Most of allthe skills of the technician and the techniques used will play important part of how long it will last. The rough estimate that igive to my clients of how long their procedure will last is around the five years mark. It’s important to make sure our clients know that SMP ( hair tattoo ) are not permanent.
For the look to remain naturally looking with defined strong impressions, each hair follicle impression must be deposited very lightly into the dermis of the skin, no where near as deep into the skin as a standard tattoo. For this reason, scalp micropigmentation can never be permanent. It is useful to know for all my clients that you can return to Luxe Micro for an aftercare session which will fully rejuvenate your treatment at a fraction of the cost.
