Dark Scalp Micropigmentation - You Need Expertise

The scalp micropigmentation process is different for those with darker skin. If you are of Afro-Caribbean, African, Indian or Asian ethnicity, you must ensure that your treatment is carried out by a top skilled technician with specific experience in this area of SMP.

Dark Skin SMP Process

Scalp micropigmentation on a dark skinned person of African, Afro-Caribbean, Indian or Asian ethnicity requires a different approach and dark skin SMP procedure.  Any technician that tells you the process is exactly the same as for white caucasian men, does not understand the individual requirements that darker skin demands. If you are of Afro-Caribbean, African, Indian or Asian ethnicity, you must ensure that your treatment is carried out by a skilled technician with specific experience in this area.

Dark Scalp Micropigmentation – your perfect hair loss solution

Scalp micropigmentation is a perfect hair loss solution for you. The problem is that you could go to a below average SMP technician and their bad work would be easier to cover up on darker skin. Using lasers to remove any errors would be more complex and more expensive for you to put right. For this reason, choosing the right SMP technician to complete your procedure is very important. Skalptec has won many UK awards and has a first class reputation around the world.

At Skalptec, our technicians are all highly experienced in carrying out SMP treatments on every skin type so you will always be in safe skilled hands. If you would like to speak to our skilled friendly team then give us a call on 0845 625 0025 today.

SMP hairline – What are the key differences?

Scalp micropigmentation for an Asian Skalptec client of Indian ethnicity you can see here. Black and Asian men have thicker hair, and therefore require different follicle replications and a different blending method. Hairstyles and hairlines are also different, with sharp modern looks far more prevalent.

A darker-skinned person has hair follicles which are larger than someone whose skin has a lighter tone.
More ink has to be applied to the follicles to fill them, and there are a number of shades that can be considered.

Darker people tend to be more suited to a more defined hairline and style (not disregarding other natural hairstyles as well), and the fading will be slower.
Also darker skinned people can be prone to having keloids, so this has to be considered before going ahead with SMP.

Scalp Micropigmentation Pigments – More Key Differences

All of these variations require the technician to apply the right blended pigment to the scalp in a different way, using different machine settings, different penetration depth and angles, and the treatment plan is devised in a different way.

A knowledgeable experienced scalp technician will make sure that the large pigment dots have the right density and the right spacing between each one. Essentially if it’s not done properly there is a strong possibility that the pigment dots will merge and the SMP treatment and final look will be ruined.
