This question comes from a member of our hair loss social community and discussion forums

I’m considering temporary Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP), but I want the option to remove the ink if I don’t like the outcome. I know permanent ink can be removed with laser treatment (“laser tattoo removal”), but what about temporary SMP ink? Can temporary SMP be removed with laser treatment?

SMP-fixedAccording to Scalp Micropigmentation experts, temporary SMP ink can be removed with laser treatment (laser tattoo removal). What’s more, because the ink is placed into a more superficial layer of the scalp, the removal process is actually less invasive and may require fewer treatments.

However, one of the advantages of temporary SMP is the fact that the ink completely fades within 6 to 24 months after the procedure. This means dissatisfied SMP patients may not feel the urge to reverse inadequate results with laser treatment. But, if necessary, temporary SMP can be removed with laser therapy.
