Scalp Micropigmentation removal is more closely linked to Permanent Makeup Removal than Tattoo Removal. Tattoo artist generally use traditional inks which do not contain titanium oxide. By contrast scalp micro pigmentation is generally done with PMU pigments which contain Titanium. Having said this, there is a trend where carbon pigments are used to do this work. This is generally good news from a removal point of view.
The use of titanium in pigments makes removal this sort of removal different from traditional tattoo removal. Titanium reacts differently under the laser and whilst this is not a problem for an experienced technician, it does mean that a different skill set is required. The size of titanium molecules also mean that specialised lasers are needed to make this treatment as safe and gentle as possible.
