FUE and SMP

There's no issue with having an SMP and FUE procedure done on the same area, in any order, provided that you wait enough time in between for the skin to heal. Neither one permanently damages the skin or affects the future outcome of the other.

Can I do FUE or any hair transplant after SMP in future?

You can have an FUE procedure after an SMP. In fact we have worked with patients that had botched SMP and was able to repair the SMP through transplanting. The only time not to do an FUE after an SMP is during the healing of an SMP just after the procedure. Or vice versa if you had an FUE first.

You can have Scalp MicroPigmentation and have FUE later on. Or you can have FUE now and have SMP later on.
