As is the case with most medical procedures, there are risks involved with Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP).
While micropigmentation isn’t technically considered a tattoo — tattoo ink goes much deeper into the skin and is injected with a thicker needle — services like SMP and other permanent makeup do carry similar risks. These include allergies to certain components in the pigment and infection associated with the tattoo ink.
However, the most important thing to be aware of is that no formal training is required to become an SMP artist (the same goes for microblading). It’s for this reason that it really is vital that you do your due diligence when searching for a reliable expert.
