Choosing the best scalp micropigmentation artists – questions you should be asking your technician and clinic

  • The first question should certainly be relevant to your reasons you’re looking for an SMP provider. If it is for scar concealment work, verify the clinic you are in contact with has already administered treatments for this. If it’s related to patch alopecia, diffuse thinning, or other treatments, likewise.

  • Once you’ve established your clinic or technician is proficient in working with your particular needs, the next question should be how long they’ve been practicing scalp micropigmentation and where they’ve trained. Owing to a lack of regulations in the SMP industry, it is always advisable to choose a technician who has chosen a responsible training program.

  • Once you’ve asked the above questions you can move over to treatment details. It is perfectly ok to ask how many sessions you will require and also how long each treatment session will take. Whilst you are approaching this subject, inquire if session numbers are a sensible estimation. To be told halfway through that they believe you need more is just annoying and some clinics will announce this with a surcharge for the said extras.

  • And finally, that age-old fearful question – how much is this treatment going to hurt your bank balance. Which will bring you right onto the subject of if there are down-payments to be made in advance and is it refundable for cancellations? Maybe your chosen clinic do finance plans and also, find out if the price can be capped?

It’s really difficult choosing a clinic for such a life-changing and important treatment. Every clinic and technician should understand that fact. This is why a good one will be well prepared for any of your questions you feel you need to ask. Before and after photographs should be readily available and don’t hesitate to use the power of social media to check for references and reputation.
