Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) Removal London

SMP RemovalScalp 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.

Client’s Testimonial

We were very touched to receive the below client testimonial.  At his request, we have made it public on our website without any modifications.  Our sincere thanks for taking the time to write about his experience.

I first approached Lorena’s clinic in the Spring of 2017 to seek help to rectify a scalp micropigmentation treatment carried out in 2009 that had gone horrendously wrong. My consultation was with Vicki, Senior Skin Technician and a treatment plan commenced soon after. From the outset, Vicki’s professional manner and understanding towards my particular case could not be faulted at all. Over the two year treatment period, I saw Vicki as more of a friend than a technician – client relationship. She is very easy going and friendly, demonstrates a high degree of knowledge in her specialist field and I always felt that Vicki showed a great deal of empathy towards how I felt concerning the SMP treatment that was nothing short of a disaster.
I would also like to commend Vicki regarding the pricing plan for each treatment which was extremely reasonable and fair throughout. I was pleasantly struck by the fact that probably unlike many other clinics in London, it’s not all about the pound signs with Vicki. She puts the needs of the client first before any other consideration and Vicki should be rewarded with the praise she fully deserves in adopting such a refreshing approach that is probably rarely seen in this industry.
I fully understood that this wasn’t going to be a quick fix and a number of sessions would be required. Over the two year treatment period and given the difficulty in removing such an abrasive substance, the improvement has been nothing short of remarkable and I would sincerely like to thank Vicki for all her hard work and efforts. I would have no hesitation in recommending Vicki to anyone in need of treatment of this nature. I only have one regret about my experience though and that is I didn’t find Lorena’s clinic years earlier. Many thanks again.
