Is SMP Painful?
SMP is a form of tattooing (where needles are used to poke small spots of pigment into the skin) so discomfort is inevitable, however most clients report the sensation to be nothing more than mildly irritating. The general consensus is that the pain varies from a 3-4 out of 10, some parts of the scalp can be more sensitive such as the temporal and hairline regions. People who have used hair systems for an extended amount of time or have a significant amount of scar tissue are prone to higher pain levels.
If you choose to use a form of pain relief, consult your physician first. Understand that aspirin is used as a blood thinner and can encourage excessive bleeding during the procedure, which can hinder results.
