It's good that Norwood 7 people have an option for their loss these days. Do you offer just the more permanent variety of SMP or both types?

Hi Bullitnut,

We do offer temporary Trichopigmentation here at our clinic in London. After 12 - 18 months we often find that 90% of our clients progress onto permanent SMP after testing the waters with temporary.

Does the Trichopigmentation ever last longer than 18 months before needing to top up?

Hi Reddwarf, thanks for your question. Trichopigmentation typically lasts 18 - 36 months before being absorbed. Traces may still remain after 36 months though are difficult to see! Permanent SMP is less easily absorbed. After testing many permanent inks over the years we use Alivio ink which is gamma-sterilised in the UK coupled with a precision 3 micron needle. Attached is an example of the detail attached (note the area in red - the redness will typically subside

Alivio ink is the one that the Brandwood clinic formulated and is a very good option with a proven track record....good choice of ink Westminster!
