Scalp micro pigmentation or SMP as it is often called can be of great harm.

We have come across numerous patients that got regular tattooing in name of SMP.





Note the size and color of the dots.

The doctors probably bought the cheapest tattooing machine (or those being hyped by some marketing companies).

The HARM:

The size and color of dots ensure that anyone looking closely can make out.

When the patient loses his pre-existing hair, he will be left with scalp filled with odd looking dots.

So, just like hair transplants, not all SMP are the same.

The problem with tattooing is the ink that disappears does so into the lymph system. Ask the poster Lorenzo who also works in the hair transplant industry. His second recurrence of cancer once again shortly after having this fake ink dot procedure had the cancer traveling to his brain. Of course this was his opinion but we all get to know our own bodies.

You can go to sites where they do strictly tattooing and the forums have several posts about swollen lymph nodes.

So why is this being offered by doctors? Because you have consumers that are desperate for a solution and doctors equally as desperate for additional revenue.

What has happened to Lorenzo? Is he alive? He doesn't post any more. How has this affected his family? His wife and children?

What you can learn from those that have been around this industry for 30+ years is they will do and say anything for money and it's not unique to just this industry.

Dr. A tattooed his own arm with the letter Z to show how it would fade over time. What I saw was a tattoo that appeared to change colors but please correct me if I am wrong as additional follow up on his test was not posted unless I missed it.

Let's see the letter Z today.

One very well known clinic actually photoshopped their result posted to an online forum. I had this verified by an expert.

I would highly suggest staying away from the fake ink dot procedure.

Stay away from doctors who perform mega sessions, have posts deleted, attack posters, sue patients & forum owners, use power drills or robots. I recommend fue with hand punches in the .70-.85 range. I consulted with dozens of clinics over the years and there was a recurring theme regarding FUE among some employees of those other clinics. I was told Bisanga was the man my research told me the same and my experience validated my own research.

There are plenty of online posts asking about the swollen lymph nodes in the neck. Lorenzo was on the right track when he started to connect his recurrence of cancer.



Hi

After my 1st session my lymph node in my neck swelled up ....

Anyone have anything similar after your smp??
