How Does SMP Work
Penetration depth, angles, pigment colors and distribution rates depend on a number of factors including the area being treated, the skin color of the scalp and most importantly the desired final results. Once the pigments are deposited, it looks like there are tiny hair follicles or short hair on the scalp. This procedure is aimed at camouflaging the surface of the scalp and creating a new look for the client. This procedure does not involve local anaesthesia, although at Ink Scalp Goddess we use a topical cream that numbs the skin to ensure minimal to no irritation during your procedure.
Pigment tattoo in Austin TX is not a one-time treatment; rather it usually requires 2-3 sessions to get complete results. The numbers of sessions needed depends on the desired results by from the client. The time interval between two sessions is usually 10-20 days and each session lasts for 2-3 hours.

Yes absolutely, it is equally beneficial for people with grey hair. Firstly, all clients are required to shave their heads before the procedure. Therefore, when the head is shaved the grey hair would not be visible. Secondly, for people with grey hair, grey-scale pigment is used which can be adjusted according to the actual hair color so that the pigment blends in well with the hair and give a natural look.
