FAQ

During the consultation I’ll inform you of specific after care procedures and exactly what to expect but generally you should plan on not getting your head wet, touching it or sweating from physical activity for 4-5 days.

I will create a look that is fitted to the hair you have. During the consultation and reviewing photos, we will have better advice on what needs to be done to your hair and what length to keep it to achieve a natural look. 

The cost of your treatment will be fully explained at your initial free consultation with me, I have different financing options in place that we can discuss.

 After 3-5 years is when you might notice that the colour starts to fade away from the dark shading, I recommend a touch up that will give it that natural dark look you had after your latest session and the cost will be considerably lower that your initial fee.  I am in the business of helping people and creating life long relationships, I want you looking the best you from our initial treatment.

Yes the SMP process can be reversed with an electro-optic Q switch laser. The process consists of a laser using heat to break down the pigmentation and causing absorption by the phagocytes in the upper dermis of the scalp. Since SMP is less intense than a normal tattoo, in terms of depth of application, electro-optic laser generally gets the job done. Again if the job is done by a professional SMP practitioner the numbers who wish for a total reversal of SMP is minimal (less than 1%) so do your research And ask lots of questions!

No worries! I provide treatments that add density to the scalp and ensure all noticeability of hair loss is taken away while blending pigment in certain areas where we suspect hair loss will happen.

Typically to maintain the “buzzed cut” look, we suggest our clients to shave every 2-3 days to have that optimal look. If your hair grows too long then it won’t maintain that natural look and won’t look seamless.

The needles I use are a SINGLE USE, sterile, 3 prong micro, steel needle, health and safety is my top priority.

Yes, I offer a 12 month guarantee with proper aftercare, from the first treatment. I want to guarantee that all of my clients are satisfied with SMP since it is your look. In case it happens where the treatment doesn’t look natural or out of place, simply contact me, and we will schedule an additional session at no cost to mend the problem.

SMP lasts a lifetime with proper care, however, there are maintenance required such as touch ups to maintain the dark pigment colour. Touch ups depend on client to client basis but on average we should touch base every 3 to 6 years to schedule a followup.

Immediately after the first session you will have the initial results of what SMP is. However there will be some redness for up to a couple of days at each session (once again this is different from person to person), and I’ll provide an aftercare guide on how to maintain the scalp. I assure you, you will look great!

SMP can be used on all sorts of coloured hair to blend with the natural colour of your head. I  have experience creating custom colours, and once again this is what separates trained SMP professional and “cowboys” of the industry.  I have been working with micropigmentation and a range of colours for over 5 years and understand how pigment will appear in different coloured skins with different skin tones.

I believe this is really what separates the average practitioners from the great ones, and I always make sure that your treatment looks naturally realistic.

I can definitely camouflage all forms of scarring with SMP! I take into consideration that scars can stand-out on the head, but with SMP, we blend in the scars into the overall look.

The organic deposits are a plant based formula developed by Zang Miah my trainer/mentor and pioneer of SMP in the UK & USA, he developed and perfected the formula over the last fifteen years.

 

My application method will not smudge, however, any pigments applied to the scalp will eventually lighten over the years, even though the materials I use maximises the life of the pigment.  The wearing of sunscreen is important, since ultraviolet radiation from the sun breaks down the pigment if it’s not protected.

Pain tolerance differs person to person. Some people can take a constant poking of the scalp with a needle but some do not cope as well, and that is okay. Generally speaking most of our clients have compared the sensation to more of a minor irritation than abject pain.  I personally, never rush treatments and encourage my clients to take frequent breaks throughout each session.

No. The only similarity is that colour is applied into your skin, so if you see ANY tattoo parlour or artist offering a similar service, run the other direction! SMP is a totally different technique practiced by trained SMP professionals using totally different pigment using different techniques with different, state of the art equipment.  

SMP is a new procedure in the Australian market, I did my research and chose to traveled to Los Angeles to train under the pioneer of SMP, Zang Miah. I have been in the beauty industry for over 15 years, working in the fine art of the application of eyelash extensions, micropigmentation for brows, eyeliner, lips and beauty spots (also known as semi-permanent makeup, micro blading or cosmetic tattooing).  All very detailed fine work which takes into consideration the clients individual requirements of facial shape, skin colour and expectations.  SMP is an art form, creating a natural illusion of real hair is my primary aim, therefore from the moment I saw Zang’s work I knew he was the the only person I wanted to train under.  As Zang is very selective with whom he trains I was honoured he saw my potential and accepted me to train, consequently include me into his family.  I am currently the only student in Australia trained by Zang Miah.

It takes a minimum of 3 sessions to achieve a complete look. Ever client has unique needs but most client process goes like this:-

  • The client comes in for a free consultation and once all your questions are answered and you are ready to go ahead we schedule your first 2 sessions.
  • The first session is typically the longest as a majority of the surface area is having pigment deposited, you can expect about 2-5 hours.
  • The second session is when we start the shading and definition process where we build on the foundation of the first treatment, taking a similar time, approximately 2-4 hours and done 7-10 after the first session.
  • The third session is an adjustment and enhancement of the second treatment. During this step we evaluate how the ink has settled from the first two treatments and if it is the desired shade, and if not, we make the necessary adjustments to get it perfect. This is when we also look at details like what shading density is needed to create a natural hairline and a seamless blend with your existing hairline. This usually take 1-3 hours.
  • Any additional sessions will be similar to session three where colouring and density adding will be made.
