Question: What is the most complex Scalp MicroPigmentation procedure?
Answer: Transitioning a hair system wearer to SMP
Here’s the reality:
Providing a transition from a hair system to SMP (we call our procedure BRAVI FREEDOM) is the most technically challenging of all pigmentation procedures.
Why is treating a former hair system wearer with SMP so challenging? The damage to a hair system wearer’s scalp over time creates a set of invisible, yet highly challenging conditions (such as varied types of scarring) that require considerable expertise to treat properly.
For example, hair system chemicals cause scarring. This results from prolonged exposure to the toxicity of hair system adhesives and solvents.
Another form of scarring–traction hair system scarring–takes place because of the tension placed on the living hair follicles at any hair system adhesion point.
Even worse, extended wearing of a hair system can result in localized Traction Alopecia (pulling live hair out by its roots), leaving the follicle too scarred to regenerate. This causes the hair loss to be far more extensive than what would have naturally occurred, both in the amount of living hair density remaining and in the total area of hair loss.
Knowing that scarring exists in clients who have worn hair systems is just the beginning–the real challenge comes from the fact that this scar tissue is visibly undetectable. Unfortunately, hair systems create a great deal of unevenness in the “subterranean landscape” of a system wearer’s scalp. Areas of dense scarring can lie juxtaposed with baby-soft, thinned skin which has not had exposure to the elements in years. For the SMP technician, this means battling pigmentation rejection in an area of scalp, and in the very next adjacent area battling the opposite problem (excessive pigmentation depth and pooling). This requires a level of intuitive awareness and technique that only a seasoned expert—with thousands of hours of hands-on experience—can deliver.
Now, multiply these physiological challenges with the pressure of ensuring that the transition out of the hair system remains unnoticed—it all adds up to zero margin for error.
I learned the hard way years ago that a guy can’t just take off his hair system and jump right into Scalp MicroPigmentation. Through years of experience, however, I can confidently state that clients of the BRAVI FREEDOM protocol are set up for total success and a clean escape.
Even though BRAVI FREEDOM is a very technically challenging procedure to perform, hair system wearers are some of my favorite clients to work with. These guys are truly in hell. Hair systems are restrictive, hot, smelly, toxic, stigmatic, and unbelievably expensive.
Only expert Scalp MicroPigmentation gives these clients an escape that allows them to transition back to a normal life—totally free from all of the negatives of their system. I take great pleasure in witnessing the emotional transformation of these men. BRAVI FREEDOM is truly life-restoring.
