Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a cosmetic treatment that involves tattooing tiny dots of pigment onto the scalp to give the appearance of fuller hair. While SMP is considered safe for most people, there are some contraindications that should be considered before undergoing the treatment.

  1. Skin Conditions: People with skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, or active acne should avoid SMP until their skin has cleared up.

  2. Blood Thinners: If you are taking blood thinners, such as warfarin or heparin, it's important to inform your SMP technician as these medications can affect the healing process.

  3. Allergies: If you have a history of allergies or sensitivity to tattoo ink, it's important to inform your SMP technician and consider alternative treatments.

  4. Pregnancy: Pregnant women should avoid SMP as the safety of the treatment during pregnancy is not well understood.

  5. Scarring: People with significant scarring on the scalp should consider alternative treatments, as the SMP procedure may not produce the desired results.

  6. Sunburn: People with sunburn on the scalp should avoid SMP as the skin is more sensitive and prone to infection.

It's important to consult with a qualified and experienced SMP technician to determine if SMP is the right treatment for you. They will be able to assess your specific needs and help you determine the best course of action for achieving your desired results.
