DOES THE TREATMENT HURT?
A popular question asked by many, unlike tattooing, micro-pigmentation does not exceed the dermal (first) layer of skin, therefore, causing less pain. This treatment is far less painful than most other long- term hair loss solutions.Prior to any treatment, a patch test is indefinite, this can help determine any pain concerns client’s might have.
WHY DO I NEED THREE SESSIONS?
Returning back to the treatment room over the course of your treatment plan, helps your practitioner to gradually build up on the density and coverage in its most natural form.
On an average, a week is usually left between each session. Each session lasts up to 3 hours with breaks included.

CAN I CHANGE OR REDESIGN MY LOOK WITH TIME?
Yes, you can as long as it is not a drastic modification. Most males may want to freshen their look by a change in their hairline, or other clients who initially used SMP to camouflage certain areas might have now decided to opt for a naturally closed shaved look. Your practitioner will discuss this option as part of your consultation.
I AM UNSURE OF WHAT HAIRLINE WOULD LOOK GOOD ON ME?
During your consultation, your practitioner at Elixir Pigmentation London will go through the variety hairlines and based on your skin tone can advise you accordingly. However, if there is a certain hairline that you do like, bring a photo along to your consultation to discuss with the practitioner.
CAN I REMOVE ALL PIGMENTS FROM MY SCALP AT A LATER STAGE?
Yes, you can. A single laser removal shot will instantly remove the pigments as they only go as deep as your dermal layer of the skin This means SMP can easily be removed.

Elixir Pigmentation London does not carry out the process but can provide details of reliable clinics.
CAN I SPREAD MY PAYMENTS FOR THE TREATMENT?
