I’m intrigued by SMP but concerned about the long-term commitment.
As I understand it, SMP is permanent. I’m worried that as I age I may want a more fitting, “mature” hairline, as my hair grays the SMP will stay dark and appear unnatural, or an alternative hair loss solution I prefer might become available but conflict with the SMP.
Is SMP reversible/adjustable? Is there an option for shorter-term SMP that fades in time (say, 1, 3, 5, or 10 years)?
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) like a tattoo is considered permanent. There are lasers which can remove the pigment but the decision to have SMP (or tattoos) should be made with the expectation that it is a life time commitment. There are some that advertise temporary SMP but I have not seen the work or how it fades over time and much of the time, as it fade, it become a half or a quarter done job. Also. it may look great for a few days but as it starts to fade, it can look worse if it fades in a blotchy pattern or fades unevenly.
With respect to changing of hair color (graying), if you have the SMP over the entire scalp, the grey stubble of hairs would not really matter. The SMP will dominate over the grey hairs. Only exception may be if your hair turns completely white (like Santa Clause).
